ProA Christmas cake's a scrumptious treat

ConsToo rich with so much else to eat?

December's here. It's time to bake Our annual family Christmas cake. Some say it's best done months before, But I'm pedantic; I deplore Such early starts to Christmastide. If it were my decision, I'd Forbid the C-word to be used Till Advent started; it's abused As matters stand….Enough, I'm...

“Traditional Christmas Cake”

published 04/11/2006

ProTastes beautiful, satisfaction of a job well done

ConsTakes a while to mix and longer to complete

This is one of my favourite recipes, I hope that the long list of ingredients does not put you off as they are not very dear and can be kept for a while afterwards to use in other recipes. Now I am a Catholic and we celebrate Christmas. There are certain things that really remind me of Christmas...

“Cheesy snails”

published 24/08/2009

Proeasy to prepare, very popular, tastes great

Conscalories

I made this salty, cheese cake for a garden party last week-end. They disappeared very quickly. They look like the house of a snail that's why we call them snails. For the first time probably it seems to be a bit difficult but it isn't. The dough can be made in a bread maker (1,5 hours) then it...

ConsDisappears too quick!

I really wanted to have a tea break from the serious type of reviews, and liking a challenge, set myself the target of writing a review for a recipe of a cake I have been making recently. My pastry might only be good as a door stop, and my yorkshires do look more like pancakes, but my cakes are...

ConsWaiting for it to cool, dieters' nightmare

Its probable that Chocolate Cake is about as controversial as baking gets - everyone has their own favourite, arguments abound on the best cocoa powder, cocoa solids percentage and frankly every other slight differentiation of sugar, flour, butter quantity, type and derivation. Its nearly as bad...

Pro very rich and full of flavour

Cons calories (an awfull lot)

Wicked Chocolate Cake. I am not a great lover of chocolate or of cake come to that, but when I was having a party a great work colleague mentioned that she loved chocolate cake. I decided to check out a recipe that my grandmother had used years ago. I have not got a clue on calories per slice but...

ProQuite straight forward.

ConsTakes up a whole evening.

My house is currently smelling absolutely delicious, as I have been baking a Christmas cake for the past 4.5 hours in the kitchen. It is a recipe that I have used for the past few years, and it really does turn out well. It is taken from Delia, but I have simplified it and omitted some stuff to...

As a child I absolutely loved cooking with my Mum. I have really clear memories of me standing on a chair against the kitchen side helping her makes cakes and buns. Sadly the older I got the less I used to cook, but when I went to university I got back into it. Lets face it…on a boring Sunday...
