chocolate tart by like mam used to bake


I have to admit, I wasn’t able to illustrate this recipe without drooling a couple of times! As you can see, this week, we have an amazingly scrummy looking chocolate tart from Rosanne at Like Mam Used to Bake.

We had seen Rosannes blog and really enjoyed reading her recipes so we really wanted to have her involved in our Monday Munchies so we could showcase one of her delicious creations! She gave us a pick of any of her recipes, so we just had to have this one. I mean, who can’t pass up chocolate tart eh?

Here’s a little bit about Rosanne and her blog:

I have a love for all things crafty and dip in and out of different things every few months.  I also have a short attention span it would appear, but the one constant that has remained with me for the past few years is baking.  I LOVE LOVE LOVE to bake.  I remember watching my mam bake as a little girl and then tasting her delicious creations afterwards, and so the love affair was born.

I’m not a writer, I’m not a pastry chef and I’m not a photographer, I’m just a girl with some memories that I cherish, who appreciates a nice slice of cake. This blog is my space to share with you those memories, to create some new ones and also to share recipes for some scrummy treats.

Hello there!

We are just back from our 2 week annual leave. We thought we would be able to fit our Monday Munchies blog on time this week, but we just got so snowed under yesterday that we had to postpone it to today!

So here it is – a vary tasty recipe from Irish food blog Chopsticks & Cheesecake. Here’s a little bit about Paula behind the gorgeous blog:

“I love to cook, and although I’m an amateur I figured here would be the perfect place to share my favourite recipes, and experiment with new ones.

I also adore eating out (who doesn’t?), and will willingly share my experiences of the restaurants of Dublin and beyond, giving tips on what’s good and what ain’t.

Now a little about me – I’m an absolute T.V, film and music junkie, and a Mexican, BBQ and Asian cuisine enthusiast. And as you will you will probably guess from future posts, I think chicken is the bees knees.

All recipes posted are either original or adapted to what works for me. By no means a professional chef but feel free to try my recipes, share and comment freely! 🙂 Follow me on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram for updates as they happen!”

Do try this recipe out – it’s a great way of using up store cupboard ingredients and also to feed any cravings for take aways at the weekend.

If you’re reading this blog, and you’re a foodie or homecook and you would like to have one of your recipes illustrated by us, do get in touch at We are always looking for collaborators for our blog, and we will link to any sites or social media sites you may have as well.
