    Light and delicate French macaroons, or macarons - are impressive, deliciously moreish and actually not at all hard to make! This four-in-one recipe takes one macaroon base and turns it into four different flavours - lemon, pistachio, chocolate and strawberry.

    My mother used to make this all the time, usually to go with Sunday dinner. I was hooked. Haven't had it in ages and I was wanting to bake something special for a special someone so I asked mum for the recipe. Tried it out today, and it's just as I remember. The thing that makes it for me is the frangipane. Hope you like it as much as me.

    This is a basic choux pastry recipe for eclairs or profiteroles. It will make enough for a 20cm (8 inch) choux ring or 5 - 6 choux buns. Follow the individual recipe instructions for methods of use and baking.

    This delicious custardy pud is a specialty from Bordeaux. You'll need 25 fluted dessert (cannele) moulds.

    My take on the traditional dessert - it fills the house with a gorgeous aroma of plums, lemon and vanilla. Use ripe plums or damsons when they're in season from end August through October.
