Notes about Recipes in this book

  • Strawberry roll-up scones

    • Astrid5555 on September 10, 2016

      Best scones ever! These strawberry filled roll-up scones are baked in a cake pan which also makes for a very attractive presentation. Gone within the hour.

  • Scones

    • Astrid5555 on September 10, 2016

      These are extremly quick to make (i.e. 30 minute tops from start until they are out of the oven) and very good. They were a little dense but probably due to some overmixing since I used the food processor rather than mixing the dough by hand.

  • Chocolate olive oil cake with grapefruit

    • e_ballad on October 21, 2017

      A very fudgy cake with a fair whack of citrus. Certainly err on checking a bit earlier than indicated, as this could very quickly overcook.

  • Parsnip apple cake

    • Astrid5555 on December 22, 2018

      Excellent! Halved the recipe and made in a 20cm springform tin. Very nice winter cake!

  • Shortbread cardamom cookies that will melt in your mouth

    • Astrid5555 on September 10, 2016

      Made these for my Christmas cookie plate. Excellent cookies with a perfectly balanced cardamom taste. Loved the soft texture which as promised felt as if the cookies melt in your mouth. Will make again!

  • Pinwheel cookies with cardamom, orange and walnut

    • Astrid5555 on September 10, 2016

      Made these much smaller than descibed in the recipe in order to fit them on my cookie plate. Very distinct orange and walnut taste, liked it very much. Reduced the total amount of sugar that is needed for rolling out the circles before baking by more than half. For me there was still enough caramelisation on the puff pastry even with much less sugar.

  • Lightning-fast banana balls

    • Astrid5555 on October 23, 2016

      Super quick to make, ideal for baking with children. Not very sweet, but my 9 year-old still loved them. Would probably add more banana next time (mine was quite small) to have a more pronounced banana taste.

  • Olive oil almond cookies

    • Astrid5555 on January 05, 2018

      Made these for a friend with IBS, whose diet is very restrictive. As the recipe introduction reads “for the person who is allergic to everything”, I thought these cookies would be perfect for her, but you really have to be desperate to like these. The dough was very crumbly and would not form into balls. Instead of adding more olive oil as suggested I added half an egg, which did the trick. After 15 minutes in the oven they did not look anything like the photo so I left them in for another 3 minutes. Taste very boring despite the addition of orange zest.
