Plum And Ginger Duff...


Plum and ginger duff. This is of course a traditional Christmas recipe; a steamed pudding in the style of a Christmas pudding. If you have never made a steamed pudding before, it might seem a bit intimidating but it’s really not difficult to make. You will need string, a 1.5 litre (2½ pint) pudding bowl, greaseproof paper and foil.


Preparation time: 25 minutes

Cooking time: 3 hours

Serves: 6-8

Nectarine Tarte Tatin...


Nectarine Tarte Tatin

Preparation time: 15 minutes, plus cooling

Cooking time: 40 minutes

Serves: 6-8

This upside down tart is commonly made with apples but other fruits also work well - such as pears, plums, nectarines or peaches. It’s very easy to make, but you need to have the courage to let the nectarines caramelise, so let them cook slowly for enough time so that their juices blend with the butter and sugar. You will also need a bit of courage to flip the tart over. You will need a 20cm (8 inch) frying pan that has an ovenproof handle.

Cooking Through the Decades..


A little while back Rennie Heartburn kindly asked me to take part in a fun recipe challenge, Cooking Through the Decades.

The idea of the post is to recreate one of my favourite and iconic recipes of a from a decade of my choice.

Two of my all time favourite recipes sprang mind; Prawn Cocktail and The Knickerbocker Glory.

Not in the same dish though, hehe. Both still all time favourite recipes of mine which I discovered in the 80's.


Knowing me and my children well, we would both pick out the sweet recipe first every time. So I pick a special back to school treat for them!
