Notes about Recipes in this book

  • Klarika's sour cherry slice

    • Cati on December 06, 2015

      Despite the comments of Foodycat, I made this today and had no problems at all. I followed the instructions, exactly the same size tin etc. Yes the batter is very thick and I used my hand to finish smoothing it out. After you pressed in the cherries it does become moister. At that stage I did worry that perhaps I should have drained the cherries for longer but the slice rose to the top of the pan and looked just like the picture. So quick to make it will become a favourite. Also I did not find it too sweet.

    • aargle on May 08, 2016

      I made this the same day as I bought the book. This gets two thumbs up from me especially as you don't need any fancy equipment just a large spoon. It turned out just like the picture and cut beautifully. A definite repeat

    • Melanie on January 15, 2016

      Lovely slice, my comments echo previous reviewer Cati.

    • Foodycat on July 08, 2015

      I've just spent an hour emailing back and forth with my aunt, trying to troubleshoot this recipe for her. She says it is very, very sweet, the batter is so thick that she couldn't push the cherries down into it and it hardly rose at all, certainly not to looking like a sponge cake the way the picture does.

    • luluf on September 30, 2019

      This was very easy and only took 5 minutes, and was still fine with gluten free flour. It had a lovely light texture, but I didn't find it particularly flavoursome. I might try it again with ordinary flour and some other fruit

  • Yellow rice

    • Melanie on January 09, 2016

      Cooked perfectly and was full of flavour.

  • Spinach and yoghurt dip (Oshe moss dip)

    • Melanie on March 29, 2016

      I loved this simple and different dip. Very little effort required. The caramelised onions provided a nice sweet note to the dish and I simply wilted baby spinach instead of using chard. Use a sturdy cracker / bread for dipping.

  • Flourless apple, almond and ginger cake

    • Melanie on July 11, 2017

      Great flavour and texture. I loved the mix of ingredients in this.

  • Slow-cooked beef with ras-el-hanout

    • Melanie on April 20, 2017

      We enjoyed this. Used store bought ras el hanout and substituted a tin of tomatoes for grated fresh ones. Chopped all of the coriander and lemon and included from the start.

  • Roasted carrot and fennel soup

    • Melanie on July 24, 2014

      Delicious, despite substituting water and herb/salt mix for stock. Pay attention when slicing fennel otherwise the end result may be slightly stringy. Served 4 of us for dinner.

  • Summer freekeh salad

    • Melanie on March 29, 2016

      I thought that this salad was filling and well balanced.

  • Frozen lemon meringue

    • Melanie on March 29, 2016

      I really wanted to love this cake but I only liked it. The optional lemon syrup was far too strong and I wish I had skipped it. The frozen stack tasted and sliced better on day 2, so make in advance if possible.

  • Warm brown rice salad

    • PiaOC on December 16, 2019

      A substantial meal for the non-meat eater and an easy side for those who do. Delicious and kept well for the following day. A great gluten free option.

  • Glazed chocolate birthday cake

    • Trea on July 24, 2014

      Made this cake for a birthday. Everyone loved it and am now being asked when it is next on the menu.

  • Orange syrup cake

    • cultus.girl on August 17, 2016

      This cake tasted flat and if I made it again I would add a once of salt.
