    These little bread rings, Jewish in origin, are delicious teamed with savoury fillings such as smoked salmon and a soft cheese, or egg and salad. The double cooking method – first by briefly poaching in boiling water, then baking – gives bagels their unique soft crumb and slightly chewy crust.

    This cake uses ground almonds to replace the flour usually found in cakes. Be careful when preparing the almonds in a food processor because electric machines bring out the oil in nuts. Whizz a handful at a time.

    A moist apple cake that is perfectly spiced with cinnamon. There's no dairy in this recipe. Use a mild-flavoured vegetable oil for best results, such as rapeseed or sunflower. The oil is what helps to keep this cake deliciously moist.
