Matches Made in Heaven

Whenever I set out to bake something, I’m always thinking about how I can personalise recipes or add extra flavours that will harmonise with the preexisting ones. I also love to add flavoured icings/frostings that are different but compliment the bake!

Here’s a few of the most delicious flavour combinations I’ve come across, so I hope you decide to try some next time you’re in the kitchen!

White Chocolate:

  • coffee
  • nuts (especially hazelnuts mmmmm)
  • wasabi (sounds strange, but don’t knock it til you try it- you only need a little bit though to pack a flavoursome punch!)
  • orange
  • lime
  • cardamom
  • salted caramel
  • maple syrup
  • cranberry

Milk/Dark Chocolate:

  • coconut
  • chilli
  • orange
  • berries
  • mint
  • coffee
  • salt
  • caramel

Ginger:

  • honey (so so so good- try a ginger cake with honey buttercream!)
  • cream
  • apple
  • lemon
  • lime
  • apricots

Citrus Fruits:

  • most fruits- particularly apple, berries, mango, cranberries,apricots
  • ginger

  • vanilla
  • cinnamon
  • almonds

  • mascarpone

Banana:
