Moist, sweet and substantial. This delightful lemon polenta cake is a must have for afternoon tea with friends. This cake is easy to make ahead, so freeze until needed then defrost overnight.

Polenta is made up as normal, allowed to set until firm, then chopped into sticks, before being deep fried. These are a great alternative to potato chips. Have a portion of tomato ketchup ready for dipping.

Very fruity and delicious! These muffins will bring a smile to anyone's day! Share them with someone you love. You may substitute raspberries or blueberries for the strawberries if you wish and feel free to use either naturally flavoured strawberry, banana or vanilla yoghurt.

This herbed pizza base is dusted with polenta for a real pizzeria touch. The large quantity allows you to freeze some of the bases for the next time you want homemade pizza.
