Punpkin Bread...


This handsome, tasty loaf is particularly good served warm from the oven with cheese.

You can of course make your own pumpkin purée by cooking chunks of pumpkin with a little water in a covered pan until soft, and then puréeing it in a food processor or blender.

Strawberry Chiffon Cake...


A real girly pink, this American style whisked sponge cake is made with pureed strawberries and vegetable oil rather than butter so is light but still moist and moreish.


You don’t need any fancy tins to make this, just 2, 20cm (8inch) springform tins that you can easily pick up from the supermarket.

Summer Berry Galette...


Who can resist a slice of warm fruit pie? Don’t stick to the old favourites of apple or apple and blackberry, try this tangy berry mix in a deliciously crumbly rich pastry.


A perfect dessert to follow a family Sunday roast. Any leftovers taste equally good cold too.
