A light, delicious and not too sweet courgette cake flavoured with lime and optional rum soaked raisins. Two green-flecked sponges are sandwiched and topped with a lime flavoured mascarpone frosting. It makes a perfect late summer layer cake, ideal for alfresco dining.
Vegan wholemeal scones are not only delicious, but they’re also healthy. These ones are rich with fibre, vitamins and minerals and also protein. They’re quick and easy to make and you’ll find some hot tips on how to make them rise well.
Delicious tangy sourdough flatbreads aren’t at all difficult to make. You can use the same dough to make tortilla style flatbreads cooked on the stove or pitta breads baked in the oven. Both have great texture and flavour and the pitta pockets open up beautifully.
This easy peasy lemon squeezy ice cream is refreshingly tart and zesty, but also smooth and creamy. With only three ingredients, it’s super fast to make. And as it’s a no-churn version, there’s no need for an ice cream maker.
A quick and delicious main meal for two or indulgent weekend brunch for four. Shakshuka is a Middle Eastern pepper and tomato dish that’s traditionally served with bread. Here, halloumi shakshuka is served with a zesty lemon and coriander couscous instead.
Got too many blackcurrants? Don’t know what to do with them? Try this easy homemade cassis. There’s no faffing about with this recipe and you only need three ingredients. Time is all that’s needed to turn those blackcurrants into a smooth and delicious blackcurrant liqueur.
Homemade hummus is so easy to make and uses just a few simple ingredients. It’s also richer, healthier and more delicious than commercial varieties. This traditional hummus recipe or hummus bi tahini creates a smooth, nutty and nourishing dip or spread. Perfect for sandwiches, dipping, salads or as part of a mezze platter.
When you’re in a hurry or the weather is just too hot, sometimes all you want is a low-effort quick and easy pudding. This is where my super easy strawberries and cream dessert comes in.
