Warming winter drinks

9 July

Hello Graham
In the name of research, I spent Tuesday morning rushing from café to café to try a series of warming winter drinks (you'll see why further down). This is not the way to do it: hot drinks deliberately require you to stop and pause, wait for the kettle to boil, the hot chocolate to cool down or the froth to settle. They act as a peaceful break in the day, and enjoyed with a slice of cake (like the two below), they're a real luxury.

Spiced Carrot, Sweet Potato and Orange Cake (gf)

Winter means warm spices, luscious oranges and the natural sweetness of root vegetables – they all combine beautifully in this dense, moist carrot cake.

Spiced Pumpkin Cheesecake

One of my favourite flavour discoveries from trips to the States is this rich combination of sweet, spiced pumpkin – totally delicious and addictive! As a bonus, it keeps beautifully for a day or two when made in advance. Just keep it somewhere cool and out of the fridge so that you don’t have any moisture on top.
