Okay, sounds crazy but it's delicious! Try it and see. I find that cut up bananas work better than mashed.
This is an easy to make barbecue sauce using store-cupboard staples - great for an impromptu barbecue!
Basic cupcakes topped with spaghetti-piped vanilla buttercream frosting, chocolate truffles as meatballs, with strawberry sauce! Great fun to make with the kids and they look great for parties and bakesales.
I love this tart. Light yet completely decadent! Great flavour with the raspberries and mascarpone cheese. I've also done this with blueberries, and again it is completely yummy!
Qaghaq ta’ l-Ghasel or treacle rings as they’re called in English, are by far Malta’s favourite traditional Christmas dessert. Although not excessively difficult to make, they take quite a lot of patience and time to prepare. You can buy these delicious pastries all year round from confectionaries, but they are mostly consumed during the Christmas season.
I adapted this recipe from a traditional vanilla one in an old Harrod's recipe book. I made it for party and it went down a storm!!
The best sandwich ever, great for all the family! Yorkshire ham, cheese and Branston pickle on thick, lovely bread.
These sticks are best served with coffee as an ‘appetiser’ for your breakfast – why shouldn’t you have an appetiser for breakfast? I enjoy dipping my Cinnamon Bread Sticks into black coffee.
A great and filling breakfast, with only 3 everyday ingredients - not including your seasoning of course! Once you get the hang of it, it's a quick meal for the family. You can use either oil or butter. The recipe makes 4 pieces.
An incredibly easy way to round off a dinner party - but only if they aren't driving! I like to serve two small scoops in tiny dishes with shortbread, biscotti or amaretti. You can vary this any way you like - try Cointreau or Drambuie (my favourite), or add a few drops of real vanilla extract or some of the vanilla seeds.
An exciting array of easily accessible ingredients is mixed together into a delicious sauce for a barbecue party! Beef, chicken, pork - whatever you're barbecuing, this sauce will bring out great flavours.
This barbecue sauce goes beyond the usual concoction, deriving flavour from orange juice, red wine and lots of garlic. It's perfect on any cut of chicken.
Here's a delectable sauce for spare ribs! Just keep basting them while they cook, and you'll be wanting ribs every night!
Well, I was making a cake for my mum and I found all these complicated cakes and desserts so I just figured it out myself.
This slow-cook recipe is ideal if you're having a crowd over for dinner. Just pop it in the oven and forget about it until you're ready to eat.
This recipe is originally my mother's, however I've taken my own twist with it, increasing the sugar and adding vanilla - removing the butter to create a perfect tablet every time that's easy for anyone to create. Family and friends and strangers from around the world have tried it themselves and sent me feedback stating that it's turned out perfect and tastes delicious. It melts in your mouth and is bursting with sweetness; the slight hint of vanilla is an added bonus that leaves for a great aftertaste.
This is a truly gorgeous tasting cheesecake. The texture is so light and creamy, it's shockingly good. I have just included the basic cheesecake recipe - it's up to you which topping you choose. We usually have it with some fruit coulis or cherry topping.
This is a lot stronger than you think when you taste it!
I adored black forest gateaux in the 70s and loved trifle so decided I would fuse the two. You can make it all from scratch but also easy to substitute ready made goods if you don't have the inclination. The ingredients are split to enable you to decide at each 'layer'.
The coconut and the spices compliment eachother beautifully.
