Vanilla Custard Sauce (British)

Vanilla Custard Sauce (British) by Marlin Rinehart

This sauce is served over steamed puddings, fruit crisps (crumbles), and any dessert that would be enhanced by a creamy vanilla sauce. It's the perfect homemade replacement for Byrd's Custard powder. One warning, however: 1) use a small, "thick-bottom" saucepan, and 2) cook over low heat and don't allow the mixture to boil or it will…

Scottish Shortbread

Scottish Shortbread by Marlin Rinehart

This is the most famous cookie of Scotland. It’s a must to use pure butter. Traditionally, shortbread contains no other flavor. I’ve been making this recipe since 1970 when I got the recipe in Edinburgh, Scotland. The addition of a small amount of rice flour gives a firmness and crunchiness to the cookie. Most American recipes for…

Travel Gingerbread Cookies

Travel Gingerbread Cookies by Hungry Jenny

Make these soft gingerbread cookies to take on your travels if you suffer from travel sickness - the calming effects that ginger has on the stomach should help to relieve the symptoms. Perfect for kids too. They should be lightly golden and still a little soft when you take them out - they will firm up a little as they cool down…

Butter and Flour Free Chocolate Cake

Butter and Flour Free Chocolate Cake by Hungry Jenny

This contains chickpeas which might sound strange but actually works really well! It doesn't taste particularly 'chickpea'-like and is still incredibly moist despite having no butter. You can easily make this completely gluten-free by using gluten-free baking powder too. This was made in an 8" square tin.

Lorraine Pascale's Crouching Tiger, Hidden Zebra Cake

Lorraine Pascale's Crouching Tiger, Hidden Zebra Cake by Bella

I love making cakes that are a bit different but with cakes I always seem to revert back to my old favourites. I will always experiment with cupcakes, but cakes? No. Don't ask why, I think I just like the traditional choices and flavours such a Lemon Drizzle or Victoria Sponge (although I am a sucker for anything with jam!) One…

Low Fat Chocolate and Banana Oat Cake

Low Fat Chocolate and Banana Oat Cake by Hungry Jenny

Apart from the sugar (and flour), this can be quite a healthy cake choice. It tastes good too! Stick your bananas in the freezer if you want to ripen them up before using. http://hungryjenny.blogspot.com/2010/04/almost-low-fat-chocolate-and-banana-oat.html

Banocolate Pie Treats

Banocolate Pie Treats by Hungry Jenny

These are a little fiddly to make but are cute little treats to dish out for a dinner party. The pie base is made out of almonds and dates, so is a healthier kind of fat to your usual biscuit and butter base. But you must keep these chilled under just ready to serve as the base melts quite quickly ;-)…

Healthy Banana Coconut Choc Cookies

Healthy Banana Coconut Choc Cookies by Hungry Jenny

These will come out nice and soft, but should retain their shape after cooling. If you're able to wait for them to cool down before eating them, that it! These are very moreish...
