An easy to make and delicious to eat vegan autumn pea stew. It’s made with British carlin peas, sweet red peppers and the last crop of tomatoes. Serve with rice, quinoa, barley, jacket potatoes or crusty bread for a comforting and satisfying meal.
Recipe for classic fig rolls (aka fig newtons), but made with wholemeal spelt flour. The fig paste is lightly spiced and gently sweetened and the pastry casing is delicious in its own right with subtle notes of lemon. These biscuits are easier to make than you might think.
Rock cakes are a traditional British bake and they are one of the easiest to make. These sultana and prune rock cakes are a variation of the classic bake, but you can use whatever dried fruit you like. You’ll also find tips on how to make fresh apple rock cakes.
Despite the unprepossessing name that Cornish Hevva Cake is sometimes given, this lightly fruited bake is not particularly ‘heavy’. It is, however, absolutely delicious. The bake falls somewhere between a sweet scone and a light egg-free fruit cake. As with many traditional bakes, Tesen Hevva (its Cornish name) is very easy to make.
This lemon caraway seed cake recipe is a riff from a Rachel Roddy recipe I spotted in the Guardian. I thought a version of it would be perfect for an upcoming visit from two of my aunts last summer.
Baked on the stove top rather than the oven, wholemeal spelt Welsh cakes are super easy and simple to make. They’re crisp on the outside, soft and buttery on the inside and incredibly moreish.
A simple but super tasty apple pie made with delicious flakey, buttery wholemeal spelt pastry. Granny’s apple pie doesn’t have to be made with a food processor, but as a bonus, there’s a review of one in this post.
When I spotted Cornish new potatoes at my local greengrocers at the weekend, I couldn’t resist purchasing some. Somehow, a bunch of Cornish asparagus made its way into my basket too. It seemed like the perfect opportunity to make a vegetarian salade Niçoise.
CT recently returned from a trip to York. Whilst there he popped into Bettys Tea Rooms for a cuppa and a curd tart. Fat rascals are a classic Yorkshire bake and one that I very much associate with Bettys. I’ve never actually tried one, so in order not to feel left out, I decided to have a go at making some.
Make the most of in-season produce with this easy to make delicately flavoured fresh spring risotto. Cornish asparagus risotto with peas and wild garlic pesto is a fabulous transition comfort dish as the weather warms up.
