Birthdays = cakes!
Flourless chocolate and pecan torte, based on this recipe. Soooo very rich, but delicious. Great for gluten intolerant people - and chocaholics! I made this in a bit of a hurry, and used the freezer to cool it rather than allowing it to cool slowly on the bench, which meant that the insides were a bit soggier than they should have been. If I make it again I'll either cook it a bit longer or be more organised to allow it to cool on the bench for longer.
Passionfruit cheesecake, made from this recipe. I didn't photograph it very well, but this was suberb - nice and tangy and not too sweet. I used Lattice biscuits for the base.
