The Tastiest Tuesdays of 2015 · Chocolate Mudcake with Ganache and Fresh Berries – The Design Files | Australia's most popular design blog.

Every January it is our annual tradition to revisit our most popular Tasty Tuesday recipes from the past 12 months, they fly by so quickly, we are amassing quite an archive!

First up, we revisit this delectable cake from Melbourne’s cake queen, Cassy Morris of Fig & Salt. Cassy creates all kinds of treats, both savoury and sweet, but her cakes are seriously something else. Her decadent layered desserts, piled high with ganache, cream, toffee shards, meringue, fresh berries and flowers have made her pretty famous on Instagram. This rich mud cake with dark chocolate ganache is a perennial crowd pleaser.

Boost your energy with a handful of nutrient-rich dried fruit

Packed with dietary fibre, vitamins, and healthy carbohydrates, dried fruit provides us the energy we need to get us through that three o’ clock slump.

A handful of dried fruit can provide the energy and nutrients we need to get through that dreaded three o’ clock slump. Packed with dietary fibre, vitamins, and healthy carbohydrates, these handy grab-and-go snacks are also the perfect pre-exercise fuel.

From bananas to apricots to blueberries, you can dry pretty much any fruit. Specific varieties boast different health benefits, such as vitamin K-packed prunes, which may reduce our risk of type 2 diabetes, and flavonoid-rich blueberries, which may improve brain function.

A word of warning, though: drying fruit reduces its water content, thus upping its sugar concentration. Therefore, it’s important to exercise portion control when snacking on dried fruits.

Also, store-bought dried fruit can often contain added sugars and sulphites, so read the labels and try to avoid these additives. Drying your own fruit is a better option, when possible.

Check out the following recipes to incorporate dried fruit into your meals.

  • Chocolate Fruit Bark
  • Hazelnut Hemp Pancakes with Dried Blueberry Sauce
  • Chickpea Goji Berry Salad
