Long Description to add
This is a cake that borders on being a dessert, and would be my choice for a celebration supper party, served warm with crème fraîche. If you are not a lover of Armagnac, the prunes also taste good served with port or amaretto liqueur.
If you really want to splash out you can make this with champagne, but sparkling white wine works very well, too. This is a lovely light dessert that slips down easily after a rich main course. It looks beautiful served in stemmed champagne flutes
Make this the day before you want to serve it and you'll be rewarded with one of the lightest, creamiest desserts ever. Blueberries make a wonderful compote but you could also use other summer berries instead.
This recipe was requested via e-mail by Jamie Sherwin. I love having your Cooks' Questions requests, as I haven't made one of these cakes for years and I've forgotten how good it is. Don't forget to start the night before you want it though.
This is a tried and trusted recipe and one of my personal favourites. The Champagne cream is best made at the last minute, with Champagne from a freshly opened bottle – it's a great experience actually eating it with all the bubbles in it
Old-fashioned because when I was a child – a very long time ago – I used to love jelly trifles, and my mother would always make one for my birthday. This is a much more adult version...
This is yet another favourite and blissfully easy bread, which is crunchy and crusty on the outside and soft and squidgy within.
It's great to have a jar of these pickles in the cupboard to serve with cold meats or pates, but I think they also make a wonderful accompaniment to Crisp Roast Duck with Confit of Sour Cherries.
Serve these pretty little wafers with any ice cream, but particularly pistachio. They can be stored in an airtight tin, giving you plenty of opportunities to indulge!
This is for people who don’t like things too sweet but, that said, if you do, add a tablespoon of sugar to the filling.
