We got a slice of this banoffee pie to take home, where I managed to forget to take a proper photo of the slice — but I think the overall pie photo gives a good impression too This was one seriously sweet dessert! Sweet pastry, layered with sliced bananas [...]

Lemon Curd Cheesecake Originally uploaded by meriwilliams. This lemon curd cheesecake was absolutely WONDERFUL. It had a crisp biscuit base, creamy filling and lovely tangy lemon curd and caramelised lemon slices on the top. Overall this was an amazing dessert, with great combinations of sweet and tart, indulgent and refreshing. Definitely going to keep an [...]
Chocolate Mousse Cake Originally uploaded by ellythompson. I love the cake counter at Belle & Herbs. The only problem is there’s generally so many things I want that I can’t decide. No such problem today. Anything titled “Dark Chocolate Mousse Cake” is pretty much guaranteed to get my attention. And it was wonderful. To be [...]
Lemon Meringue Slice Originally uploaded by meriwilliams. I have to be honest, this wasn’t my favourite Belle & Herbs dessert.

Elly’s Fridge Cake Originally uploaded by meriwilliams. I’m a big fan of Fridge Cake. Any Fridge Cake. Bits of Biscuit, Dried Fruit and Glace Cherries, coated in Chocolate and left to set… It’s yummy!

Blueberry Pancakes Originally uploaded by ellythompson. After seeing a small child eating these one day, I decided I had to get some of my own. Lovely, soft Buttermilk Pancakes dotted with Blueberries served with butter and Blueberry Jam. Yummy!
Apple Toffee Pancake Originally uploaded by meriwilliams. When I ordered this I was expecting something smaller… Little pancakes with apple pieces, perhaps. I was amazed when I was delivered a platesize apple and sultana pancake, an inch thick, with a little pot of toffee syrup to pour over it. Yummy!
The Elvis Sandwich Originally uploaded by meriwilliams. Peanut Butter and Banana between fried bread… ‘Decadent’ doesn’t quite do this sandwich justice. It’s absolutely gorgeous, but leaves you wanting a severe detox.
