I think the words – apple, custard, cake – says it all for this recipe and when you add in apricot jam and perhaps a blob of cream, who needs more………..delicious.
If you don’t have the time or the energy to make the pastry shell used in this recipe just use a bought one, but make sure you get one big enough, as you don’t want the filling overflowing in the oven.
My husband loves cabbage so I use it in stir fries, cook it with butter and bacon and basically add it to anything I think it will go with, but I must admit I do have trouble finding interesting way to prepare it. Found this recipe in Mum’s collection and think I’ll try it out on him, it certainly is different.
I like the idea of these puddings as you could prepare them up to the baking stage and then put them in the oven just before you’re ready for dessert. If you don’t like using tinned pears you could poach some fresh pears. I think might actually be really nicer.
As mandarins are now in season I thought it was worth sharing this recipe. Using a ready made pastry case or creating one with pastry sheets would make this as it says ‘a quick dessert for the family’ also for visitors I reckon.
I like the sound of this – steak, onion, mushroom and red wine topped with potato, don’t think you can go wrong with that combination. I would suggest though that if you don’t have an ovenproof pan it would be better to transfer the meat to an casserole dish as I don’t think the potato cook all the way through under the grill.
The warm months must have finished as there wasn’t any mangoes in the supermarket this week. If you still want the mango taste this recipe using canned slices could be the answer.
