Honey, Honey – Inspired Recipes

Honey, honey, oh how you inspire me!
There is something amazing about honey. When I was young I loved homemade honeycomb dipped in chocolate, in fact I still do! When I am ill I like a cup of tea with honey to sweeten and soothe. And when I can, I will choose any desert with honey even above a desert with chocolate!
Honey, Honey - Inspired Recipes

Honey, Honey what an inspiration!

One of my favourite and simple things to do for a desert is use pre-made vanilla ice-cream (be sure it’s nice and creamy), drizzle a little honey on top and then either shave or crush almonds to finish it off. Simple, divine and guaranteed to get lots of compliments when served to dinner guests.
Honey Pistachio Biscotti

Honey Pistachio Biscotti

Honey Pistachio Biscotti:
  • 1 cup unsalted pistachio kernels (you can use blanched almonds if you prefer)
  • 1 cup plain flour
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon bicarbonate of soda
  • 1/3 cup caster sugar
  • 2 tablespoons honey

Step 1Preheat oven to 170°C/150°C fan-forced. Line 2 baking trays with baking paper. Finely chop 1/2 cup pistachios. Transfer to a bowl.

Step 2Sift flour, baking powder and bicarbonate of soda over chopped pistachios. Add sugar and remaining pistachios. Stir to combine. Add honey and 2 tablespoons cold water. Stir until mixture just starts to come together. Using your hands, knead until well combined.

Step 3Divide dough in half. Shape each half into an 18cm log. Press down slightly to flatten. Place on 1 baking tray. Bake for 18 to 20 minutes or until golden and firm. Remove from oven. Cool. Reduce oven temperature to 150°C/130°C fan-forced.

Step 4Using a serrated knife, cut logs into 1cm slices. Place slices, in a single layer, on 2 trays. Cook for 15 minutes or until lightly browned and firm. Transfer to wire racks to cool completely. Serve.

Baklava Cocktail:



Step 1

Step 2

Add in ice and shake until mixture is chilled. Pour into a glass (with or without the ice).

Step 3

Sprinkle a pinch of crushed almonds over the top and serve.

I must warn you, this is like a liquid desert and you’ll be tempted to have another! They are pack a pretty good punch for something so sweet.
