With cold winter nights fast approaching the idea of a hot baked pudding is quite appealing. This one uses canned raspberries, but I think it would work just as well with thawed frozen ones.
This recipe is definitely not for those who don’t like meat and fruit cooked together. To be honest I’m not quite sure if I would like it. I find the banana in it a bit strange, but I guess the peanut butter, dates and chilli might be OK. I leave it up to you to decide.
When I’m looking for a lazy dip to make I simply mix a tub of spreadable cream cheese, with a packet or can of salmon and squeeze in some chili sauce, but this dip doesn’t take much more effort. You have to chop up the almonds and parsley, but the rest is just mixing the ingredients together…..easy peasy.
I was a bit baffled when I read this recipe as to what a ‘tube pan’ was. A check of google tells me that it’s what I’ve always called a ring tin. I thought that an alternative name for a ring tin was a Bundt tin and have never heard it called a tube pan, but it turns out that they’re the same thing. So to clear up the confusion I thought I’d add a photo of a tube, ring or Bundt pan.
I like the description that the Herald Sun writer gave this dessert “gooey, rich but light”. Not quite sure how accurate that is as I haven’t made it yet, but I’m sure my chocolate loving granddaughter would be a good person to try it out on.
I like the look of this dessert and can imagine it on a cold autumn night with lashings of thick cream. I can’t find a date on it, but the $5 cost makes me think that it isn’t too old. You should be able to make it for about that with canned peaches, but with the current price fresh ones would make it more expensive…..
We’re going to the F1 Grand Prix at Albert Park this weekend so I’m going to make a batch of these to take for lunch. But if you’re picnicking this Easter or any other time, they could work well for that too.
I’m not sure how many Australians still have a meat free day on Good Friday. It was a tradition that Mum used to stick to, but that was many years ago. I was reminded of that when I came across this tuna recipe and thought that it might be an easy thing to make on the day.
This New Idea recipe suggests serving the chicken with a cucumber and red onion salad, which sounds like a good idea. Sadly though it won’t be a dish I’ll be making, as coriander isn’t popular in my household, I guess I could substitute parsley for it and hope for the best…..
I always think of sesame biscuits as being savory, but these are definitely sweet as they have honey and brown sugar, mixed in with coconut, rolled oats, oil and butter. Almost a healthy combination!!!!
