I got this recipe from Sharon, a flatmate at my university, who got it from her Gran. Her Gran was an amazing cook who never needed to weigh anything! Luckily, Sharon had made her write this one down. I know you can get these at nearly every bakery in the high street but they are relatively simple to make and well worth the effort.
The easiest banana cake to make, just right for using up those very ripe bananas in the fruit bowl! I make this one in a loaf tin then you can cut slices and butter them for an after school treat.
This is a great carrot cake recipe that is easy to make. It calls for self-raising flour, carrots, walnuts and cinnamon - no other spices, pineapple, raisins, etc. The Cream cheese icing is also easy to make and really delicious. Feel free to reduce the amount of sugar in the cake if you prefer your cakes less sweet.
Using a good-quality curry powder or paste takes all the work out of making this fabulous dish. For the best flavour, make it a day ahead and reheat.
If you've ever had school dinners in the olden days, you will have tried cornflake tart. This pudding will bring back those happy childhood memories. A shortcrust pastry is topped with strawberry jam and a chewy, sweet cornflake topping. Enjoy hot with custard.
This is a simple recipe. After making them the first time my husband said 'no more' to beef burgers. These are really good - any cooking method may be used, and they freeze very well.
This chicken tikka masala is an easy but flavoursome version of everyone's favourite mild-medium curry!
This gorgeously creamy chocolate mousse is actually dairy free and egg free - totally vegan - and has the goodness of avocado to boot!
