Going to make delia recipe gingerbread loaf can i make double quantity then divide it into two loaf tins and cook on the same shelf or should i just do normal recipe also it says put on lower shelf to cook i have five shelfs in oven so would it be the third shelf thank you
I am making the last minute Christmas cake at the weekend and have a query.
The last minute (brandy) one says self raising flour plus 3tsp baking powder
The sherry last minute one says plain wholemeal plus 3tsp baking powder. They seem pretty music the same recipe with differing flour/alcohol..
My concern is the baking powder with the self raising flour - is that ok? Will it not be too much?
Can I substitute self raising flour in the sherry Christmas cake?
I'm Coeliac and don't think I've seen wholemeal gf flour.
How long in advance can I cook the ingredients for salmon coulibac. Would it be best to cook all the ingredients and keep them in the fridge before assembling? If I cooked everything on a Thursday to eat on Sunday?
Delia put a recipe called ‘a different kind of chilli’ in an issue of Good Food magazine a number of years ago. It was a twist on a chilli con carne but using up ingredients in your cupboard, one of them being black eyed peas. Unfortunately in our recent move back to the north it got lost!! I have searched the internet for it but had no luck. It was and still is my husbands favourite chilli recipe and wondered if there was any way you could help me locate a copy so that I can cook it for him for our thirtieth wedding anniversary.
Hopefully yours, Catherine Jowett
