We want to make the Cheat Christmas puddings for a school event as we need them to cook quickly and doing them in the oven would be perfect, I just need to know how long they will keep for once cooked? Also is it ok to use plastic pudding bowls?
I usually do Delia's rich fruit cake recipe for Christmas but this year have decided to try her 'last minute' mincemeat cake. Just wondering how 'last minute' it really is and how well it keeps. Is 7 weeks too soon to make it? Without thinking, I've started soaking the dried fruits and wonder if I should leave them for a week before making the cake?!
I am trying to cook a Delia Smith Christmas Cake in my Neff circotherm oven I Cooked it on the first shelf on circotherm but am wondering whether I should have cooked it on a different heat setting - it has come out burnt and dry is there a reason.
Can I use dark brown muscovado sugar in the classic Christmas cake recipe please . Also my sugar has gone hard. What can I do?
Dear Lindsay. I have often made the cheese and parsnip roulade for my husband and daughter, I actually use Double Gloucester because sage derby can be a bit too 'sagey' and because I forgot what cheese Delia has suggested whilst out shopping !! It's always a success and enjoyed. My question is can I use frozen breadcrumbs in this recipe?please?
