Pull Apart Muffin Cake from Nadiya Bakes

You wouldn't know it, but this mega cake is actually made up of lots of smaller chocolate-salted-caramel cupcakes, wedged together and iced with a delicious Swiss meringue buttercream. You won't need to cut or slice or plate it up, just get everyone to grab their own. Magic!

Brigadeiro with Sweet and Salty Pitta Chips from Nadiya Bakes

This riff on a traditional Brazilian treat is a bowl of chocolatey set ganache, made with just condensed milk, cocoa powder and butter. Nadiya tops hers with passion fruit for freshness and zing, before serving it up with home-made pitta chips that are baked in butter, salt and sugar. Rich, sweet and made for sharing.

Try them with this orange, creamy and luxurious syllabub, which Nadiya says "is just a fancier way of serving them if you have guests around". You can also swap out the fruit in this recipe for any dried fruit you have in your cupboards.
