We've really enjoyed having Dorie Greenspan helping us judge our Bittersweet Baking contest - we love her books and delicious recipes. We're big fans of her regular column at Serious Eats and we're rounding up some of our favorite recipes from there today.
Above you can see Spicy Christmas Cake with bittersweet chocolate icing and the plummy amazingness of Dimply Plum Cake. More below, including a couple of collaborations with Pierre Hermé and pumpkin pancakes.
• Ann Brettingen's Swedish Apple Cake - Baked in a deep-dish pie pan or cast iron skillet.
• Pumpkin Pie Pancakes - Good for breakfast or dessert.
