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…

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…

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.

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…

Healthy Fruit and Nut bars

Healthy Fruit and Nut bars by Angie Wilkes

Homemade version of Nak'd bars. Easy to make, very versatile. If you love the taste of Nak’d bars, but you’re not so keen on the price, try making your own – you won’t believe how easy these are to make. This is the basic recipe for the bars, but you can add whatever flavourings you want. I’ve used vanilla, but I suggest…

Carrot Cake (butter and sugar free)

Carrot Cake (butter and sugar free) by Hungry Jenny

A healthier version - that still tastes like carrot cake :-) The 'frosting' is cream cheese so is also a healthier option than the standard frosting you get with carrot cake, but feel free to omit if you want to make this even healthier! This recipe is for a 7 x 12.5" traybake and cuts into 27 small bars.
