How easy is this carrot cake? No grating - everything's mixed in a blender or food processor till smooth. You don't have to use the icing, but try it - it's gorgeous!
My favourite aunt introduced me to this deliciously rich and fragrant dish. In the past few years I've made some changes and this is the recipe my family likes best. It's a great chilli con carne alternative and it freezes well. Try it on a jacket potato!
Spicy chicken with an enticing aroma. Think of this dish as a Latin American curry - an exciting alternative to the usual!
I learnt this recipe for cuca de banana, or banana cake, back home in Brazil when I was studying in the south, where the German influence is very strong and therefore there are plenty of German dishes. I suppose the Germans originally made it with apples, but bananas are definitely more "Brazilian".
