Magic Lemon and Syrup Pudding

This is my latest variation on the Magic Chocolate Pudding. I felt like a change (yes, even I can occasionally want something that isn’t chocolate!) and this fitted the bill perfectly. It’s just as easy as the original, still cooks in next to no time and tastes delicious. This version is delicious served with homemade […]

Yoghurt That Pours - Tasty But Wasteful!

I’ve been meaning to post details of this for some time, but then today I finished a box and felt compelled to whinge about the waste. Alpro have brought out a “New, Improved” pourable version of their excellent vanilla yoghurt.

High-speed Tiramisu

This is the version you make when you need a dessert which you can throw together then stuff in the fridge and forget about overnight until you need it! It still tastes good and, just like the original, it matures over a day or two in the fridge. This version requires no cooking at all! […]

Fantastic Chocolate Sponge Cake

This has been a mainstay of my family for more years than I can remember. It is easy to make and produces a reliably delicious, light and fluffy cake. The only thing which you must NEVER EVER do is open the oven before 20 minutes of the cooking time have passed. You can make a […]
