Cook blog share 2020 week 22: fruit filled recipes
Enjoy summer at its best with this selection of delicious fruit filled recipes. Plus find the #CookBlogShare 2020 week 23 linky.
Welcome to #CookBlogShare week 22. #CookBlogShare is a weekly link party where we share recipes, salivate and comment on each other’s recipes and generally enjoy all things food.
If you’ve got a recipe to share, this is the place to do it!
What’s been cooking this month?
The weather has been so lovely here that it’s almost been too nice to be stuck in the kitchen. I say almost because I still can still never resist taking a little time to rustle up something tasty. And I think when you see this week’s deliciously summer fruit filled recipes you’ll be tempted too!
Since lock down started in March I’ve found it hard to find the time to work much on my website. Looking after / homeschooling my two wee ones is fairly all consuming so it’s been necessary to let this take a bit of a back-seat.
One thing you can be sure of is that the kids and I have been baking and cooking up a storm in our kitchen together. So at some point (once I can find the time to write up the recipes), we’ll have lots of new ideas to share. In the meantime I have been able to update a few old posts likes these easy chocolate eclairs and these Viennese whirls.
Fruit filled summer recipes
As ever, I was spoilt for choice with all the delicious recipes linked up to last week’s #CookBlogShare, hosted by Jacqui at Recipes Made Easy.
But what really tickled my fancy were all the fabulous fruit recipes. Once of my favourite things about the summer is getting to enjoy beautiful fresh, ripe summer fruit and last week’s linked up recipes had them in abundance.
So if you enjoy raspberries, strawberries, gooseberries even half as much as I do, you’re in for a treat this week,
This eton mess from ‘Lost in Food,’ is one of the easiest desserts you can make, and one of my personal favourites. Full of summer strawberries and raspberries, it doesn’t involve any ‘real’ cooking so even if you’re not a pro in the kitchen you’ll be sure to enjoy this.
Gooseberry crumble muffins
I’ve not had gooseberries in years. I think I remember them as being too bitter, but these gooseberry crumble muffins from ‘Only Crumbs Remain‘ add just the right amount of sweetness to balance the fruit’s sharpness. And just look at that delicious crumble topping!
White choc and rhubarb ice cream
If this hot weather contines I can see myself eating a lot of this white chocolate and rhubarb ice cream from ‘Jess Eats and Travels.’ A zing of rhubarb sounds like a refreshing treat on a hot summers day. I only hope I haven’t jinxed the weather now!
Orange and poppy seed muffins
I don’t think oranges are technically a summer fruit so these are for anyone in the Southern hemisphere right now! I simply couldn’t resist including these orange and poppy seed muffins from ‘A Baking Journey’. They’re a classic combo of tangy, crunchy & slightly bitter, all contained within a muffin. Yum.
Lemon chicken with olives
Finally, this lemon chicken with olives from ‘Taste Botanical,’ was our only fruity savoury dish but it looks delicious. (Again I may have used a little artistic licence to class lemons as a ‘summer fruit’, but this was too good not to share.) It uses preserved lemons rather than fresh ones but they add a freshness and vibrancy to the traditional Moroccan recipe.
