Sticky Toffee Gingerbread Pudding Recipe🍮

This recipe is by Supervalu and tasted a lot better than it looks. It was delicious when served immediately and when the sauce was warm.

For the Pudding
  • 0.5 tsp Bicarbonate of Soda
  • 225 g Butter
  • 50 g Crystallised Ginger Finely chopped
  • 3 large Eggs
  • 1 tsp Ground Ginger
  • 150 g Light Brown Sugar
  • 1 tsp Mixed Spice
  • 1 pinch Sea Salt
  • 125 g Self-Raising Flour
  • 175 g Signature Tastes Medjool Dates Chopped
  • 100 ml Sour Cream
For the Whiskey White Chocolate Butterscotch Sauce
  • 4 tbsp Butter
  • 150 ml Double Cream
  • 125 g Light Brown Sugar
  • 100 g White Chocolate Finely chopped

For the pudding; Grease a 2-litre pudding mould and pop it onto a baking tray. Heat the oven to 160°C.

Beat the butter and sugar in a freestanding mixer until light and fluffy.

Mix the flour, spices and ginger together in a bowl then beat into the butter mix with the eggs.

Add the dates and 100ml of water to a medium saucepan. Simmer for 2-3 minutes until the dates have softened. Stir in the bicarbonate of soda and it will become foamy, this is why you need a slightly larger saucepan.

Fold this into the rest of the ingredients along with the sour cream and a pinch of salt. Pour into the greased pudding mould and bake for 1 hour until fully cooked, risen and golden.

For the butterscotch sauce, combine all the ingredients in a small saucepan, except the white chocolate, stir together and bring to the boil, reduce the heat a little, simmer for a minute or two until it has thickened, then stir through the white chocolate until melted.

To serve, arrange the warm pudding on a plate and pour over the sauce.

Nutella Swirls Recipe🍫

This recipe is by Irish blogger Niamh O’Sullivan and turned out delicious. I enjoyed two Nutella Swirls each morning served with some natural yoghurt and granola. These Nutella Swirls are a great breakfast option if you’re feeling like something sweet, snack or dessert and I look forward to making them again.

1 sheet puff pastry

Two heaped dessert spoons of Nutella

1 beaten egg

Icing sugar to decorate

Preheat oven to 190C.Spread Nutella over pastry.

Roll-up pastry and cut into pieces.

Brush the egg mixture over the seal of the pastry and add a little on top of the pinwheels. Place on a parchment lined oven tray and bake for approximately 18-20 minutes, or until golden and puffed.

Remove from oven and allow to cool. Once cooled, sift icing sugar over the top of the swirls. Enjoy!

Sweet Potato Fries Recipe🍠

This recipe is by Supervalu. I recently bought Achill Island Sea Salt and was looking forward to using it in this recipe. The recipe can be slightly adjusted depending on how many servings you want and the size of the potatoes. I used 3 sweet potatoes today.

🥛Dairy free🌾Suitable for Vegetarians

Ingredients

  • 5 Sweet Potatoes, peeled and sliced
  • 3 tablespoons Cornstarch
  • 1/2 teaspoon Seasoned Salt (I used Achill Island Sea Salt)
  • 1/2 teaspoon Chilli Powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon Black Pepper
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 2 tablespoons sunflower oil

method

  • Preheat oven to 200 degrees celcius and line a large baking sheet with parchment paper. 3 large sliced potatoes are usually too crowded on 1 sheet, but it depends on their size. You may need an additional sheet. Set aside.
  • Place cut sweet potato fries in a large bowl or ziplock bag and toss with cornstarch. You want a nice thin coating.
  • Pour the potatoes into a strainer and shake off extra cornstarch. Discard the extra cornstarch out of the mixing bowl too. Place potatoes back into the bowl and add add the garlic, seasoned salt, chilli powder, black pepper and oil.
  • Line the sweet potatoes onto the baking sheet. Try not to crowd them or else they won’t bake, they’ll just steam. Bake for 15 minutes. Remove them from the oven and flip. Place them back into the oven for 10-15 minutes. Make sure to rotate the pan to avoid uneven browning.
  • Turn the oven off and keep the fries inside as as the oven cools down for about 30 minutes. This step will help the fries get crispier. Enjoy 🙂

These were very tasty and reminded me of shop-bought spicy wedges (🤤)
