Hello, I'm having party on Sunday and would like to cook the lamb shanks for six people. Do I follow recipe the same or triple cooking time? I can only find recipe for two people. I'm worried I get the time wrong and people have to sit waiting for food for hours. Thank you
On the coffee and walnut cake icing, because its mascarpone the cake has to be kept in the fridge so I was wondering if I do the coffee cream mousseline icing but instead of doing it on the hob if I could just mix all the ingredients (butter,brown sugar and coffee) but not the egg yolks because they need to cook. Would that work thanks.
Also if I was to make the coffee and walnut cake with 175 grams of butter sugar and flour and 3 eggs would I need more than a tablespoon of coffee and 50 grams of walnuts? thanks
Hi Lindsey can you freeze mascarpone?
I have made the Christmas Pudding recipe from Delia's Christmas book. I wanted to make smaller puds this year so i have put the mixture into four 1/2 litre put bowls, rather than one 2 litre bowl, as in the recipe.
My question is- How long should I steam the smaller puds for? I was thinking about 6 hours instead of 8, is this right? And then how long should I steam on Christmas Day?
