    Pumpkin cheesecake doesn’t just have to be a Halloween or Thanksgiving pud! This tasty pumpkin cheesecake can be enjoyed all year round and is bursting with flavour. The base is made with crushed ginger biscuits that gives each bite a tangy, burst of ginger that works wonders with the soft, pumpkin infused filling.

And, if you’re enjoying this pumpkin cheesecake seasonally, you can reap all of the benefits of this autumnal vegetable, wrapped up is a sweet dessert treat! Pumpkins have been proven to support our skin thanks to the beta-carotene it contains that converts to vitamin A in our bodies and soothe our stress levels as they’re a source of magnesim. Pumpkins also contain a decent amount of vitamin C, which is great for helping to boost your immune system during cold winter months.While a warming winter soup might be best if you’re trying to be healthy, it’s good to know that if you are indulging in a slice of delicious pumpkin cheesecake, there are some benefits to your delicious dessert – other than how good it tastes of course! This recipe will take around 20 mins to prepare plus chilling time. We think our pumpkin cheesecake is best made in advance so it has plenty of time to set - so it's perfect for a party. Simply make the pumpkin cheesecake the day before, leave to set overnight, and then pop in the oven when you’re ready to warm it up and serve the next day. An autumnal crowd pleaser, decorate your cheesecake with plenty of whipped cream or a wonderful scoop of real dairy vanilla bean ice-cream that will make the perfect contrast to your warming winter pud, straight out of the oven.

  • Treacle toffee

    Treacle toffee is a great addition to a Halloween or Bonfire Night party (but we have also been known to treat ourselves to a few squares outside of these celebrations!). Easy to make, this treacle toffee recipe is a sticky sweet treat that is perfect as a food gift or a sweet treat at special occasions. This recipe makes 4 gift bags worth and will take around 50 mins to make, plus cooling time, so is a simple Saturday activity to do with the kids - just be mindful of how hot the sugar gets. The treacle will set hard so be careful when it comes to breaking with a rolling pin. If you don't want pieces of treacle to fly everywhere when breaking up, place a kitchen or tea towel over the top before smashing. Thanks to the lovely treacle in this recipe the results are rich and dark. Once you've finished cooling your tasty toffee the top should be beautifully smooth and shiny.
