Recipe from here. The guinea fowl (free range from Waitrose) was great. Wasn’t really convinced by the lentil sauce.
This was an excellent banana cake — moist and sophisticated.
Some differences from the recipe:
- I missed out the chocolate.
- I used a real vanilla pod instead of vanilla extract.
- I didn’t sprinkle sugar on top.
- The bananas were not too ripe.
- Cooked for about 55 minutes, half that time covered in foil.
Jaffa cakes from this Jamie Oliver recipe:
They taste almost entirely unlike jaffa cakes though. Could do with more sweetness. The main problem is the recipe ingredients are all wrong: It needs more cake mix, about half the marmalade, and about twice the chocolate.
Cookies from this BBC recipe:
Not exactly sophisticated, but they taste OK.
Tasty! The secret is in the lemon and fennel fronds added afterwards, giving it a nice lift.
Recipe is this one but I didn’t bother with the onion.
Home-roasted peppers, coriander, pimenton and pine nuts pesto, pasta, and fresh salad from the garden.
This is the recipe – don’t put too much paprika in it.
Very delicious indeed, and super-simple to make. The recipe is this one.
Recipe from here. Very tasty, rather like a pancake. As you can see I burned it slightly even after 12 minutes, so I think the optimum cooking time is something like 10 minutes.
