Mango Peach And Passion Fruit Trifles...

How sweet are these mango peach and passion fruit trifles?

Fancy trying one?

If you prefer, make this trifle in a large glass bowl and arrange the sponge fingers vertically in the fruit layer.

They look pretty when surrounded by the cream custard. If you prefer use 4 -5 halves of tinned peaches instead of fresh.

Strawberry And Blueberry Crumble...

A Christmassy twist on a favourite pud. It doesn’t seem to matter what size your Christmas cake is, there is always a little bit of marzipan left that you don’t know what to do with.

Don’t throw it away, just 75g (3oz) adds festive flavour to a simple crumble, delicious spooned over fresh fruity strawberries and blueberries.

Chocolate Dipped Orange Biscuits...

Chocolate  Dipped Orange Biscuits...

By Rachel Allen

Makes 15–20 biscuits

92 calories/ 5.2g fat per portion

Rachel’s quote: ‘These shortbread biscuits are incredibly easy to make and you can cut them in to whatever shapes you’d like.

I’ve taken the small extra step of dipping them in melted chocolate, they look lovely when set and the chocolate of course goes really well with the orange zest.

Recipes with so few ingredients demand the very best quality produce and that’s why I use Kerrygold butter.’

The Max Christmas Pudding...

Whirlpool’s microwave recipe....

Here is a recipe for a delicious Christmas pudding packed with fruits and spices.

This version is slightly lighter than a traditional pudding – perfect if you haven’t much room left after the turkey.

This recipe would normally steam for some hours, but in the Max microwave will cook for just 30 minutes. Think of all the energy saved!!
