Hazelnut & Vanilla Crumble with Peaches and Blueberries

Hazelnut & Vanilla Crumble with Peaches and Blueberries // The Sugar Hit

  If you’re used to crumble that is on the hook, get excited, because this one is totally off it. It’s a typically buttery crunchy crumble topping, studded generously with hazelnuts, plenty of whole rolled oats, and scented not with cinnamon (a little played out) but aromatic vanilla!   The reason I call this Hazelnut & Vanilla Crumble wiiiiiith...

Hush Puppies with Corn and Scallions // The Sugar Hit

  Why not start the week off right with a little deep fried goodness? There is no better way to end a Monday than with a cold beer, and a pile of deep fried, sweet corn studded nuggets of cornmeal batter. Dip them in a little hot sauce, and you might just forget there’s a whole week ahead of you.   Isn’t food great like that? I don’t know if it...

The Best Hot Fudge…and when to use it.

The Best Hot Fudge // The Sugar Hit

  This is my recipe for the BEST hot fudge. Now, that’s my opinion, and I have very specific hot fudge requirements. Firstly, no ganache. There is a time and a place for that thick, rich, unguent, but on my Sundae it ain’t.   Secondly, the texture. Perfect hot fudge should be glossy, silky, and smooth, with just a hint of goo and chew to it. And...

No Knead Brioche Brown Butter Buns

No Knead Brioche Brown Butter Buns // The Sugar Hit

  This no-knead dough is so delicious, you’re going to want to make a sleeping bag out of it. And I just might. And then I’m gonna make a pillow out of that glaze and go to sleep in a sticky, buttery puddle of happiness.   These are a classic cinnamon bun, made with no-knead brioche dough, and topped with a brown butter glaze. And that glaze is the...
