This is a speedy, super easy lemon slice recipe from BBC Good Food which uses ground rice in the base resulting in a noticeable crunchiness. I have tweaked the recipe a little to suit my taste. I’ve used salted butter and reduced the sugar for both the base and the pudding top to make the lemon slice extra sharp. I took care not to over cook the lemon top so it is just set and has a smooth velvety texture. Perfect afternoon treat! Read More
I think this is a great way to eat semolina, rich and moist in the middle and crunchy on top. It always goes down well at the end of a meal with a splash of cream.
Avocados always remind me of a drink we used to have in Burma and one that I particularly enjoy, an avocado shake. I have adapted this recipe into an ice cream.
I remember as a child, walking to the night market with my parents and eyeing the tempting sweets that lined the bustling streets of our local area. These sweets were usually bought from the street vendors as special treats rather than made at home.
This is a childhood favourite, a welcomed cooling treat during the hot season. Generous amount of crushed ice was added to the creamy coconut milk mixed with caramel-like sugar syrup and chewy sago pearls. This recipe is very simple and you can add additional flavours and textures to it if you wish.
Lychee and ginger really works well together; the ginger adds a touch of heat and compliments the sweetness of the lychees. The sorbet is refreshing and I imagine would work well with a sprig of mint for decoration or if you fancy a drop of gin or vodka to create a frozen cocktail.
The new season Navel Oranges are fabulous at the moment; thin-skinned, juicy, sweet with a slight sharpness. After indulging in a couple, I decide to make a dessert with the simple addition of corn flour rather than using eggs or milk. It makes a refreshing treat for friends who are either vegans or dairy-intolerant.
