Notes about Recipes in this book

  • Apple crumble cake

    • debkellie on May 22, 2016

      Annabel defies people to not like this cake - and must say it was pretty delicious. So divine was the scent that we had to have a couple of slices just 20 mins out of the oven with some ice cream as a dessert - wonderful. And it really is an easy cake!! Hopefully just as good cold with tea later this morning!!

    • lou_weez on July 29, 2020

      This is a big, delicious apple cake. Soft and delicate on the inside with a crunchy topping. Amazing warm but just as delicious cold with cream.

  • Walnut and red pepper dip (Muhammara)

    • debkellie on January 26, 2017

      Used half home roasted red pepper and half marinated grilled red peppers. An interesting dip, but I'd cut back on the smoked paprika next time

    • debkellie on March 31, 2017

      Repeated without smoked paprika.. much better flavour!

  • Asian pumpkin and sweet potato soup with coriander nut pesto

    • aargle on July 13, 2016

      One of the easiest soups to make and one of the most delicious. Made the pesto with almonds which really added to it. Had about 750grams of pumpkin. Will most definitely make it again.

  • The imam's moussaka

    • Melanie on January 15, 2016

      This didn't really work out for me. I'm guessing that the eggplant that I used were too large but nonetheless I didn't think the dish quite came together. It made a huge amount though. Took longer to bake than recipe suggested but was relatively easy to make.

  • Blueberry and orange cake with Lady Grey syrup

    • Melanie on January 15, 2016

      This cake is delicious and tastes best on the day it is made. Flavours work really well together. The syrup needed slightly longer to thicken and it is best if you can use a serving dish with a lip to catch the syrup.

  • Apricot slice with lemon icing

    • tui on April 05, 2016

      I was looking for a recipe for an apricot slice that would be suitable for packed lunches for volunteer conservation workers and this worked perfectly. Having read the previous note I reduced the amount of coconut to 50 grams and was pleased with the result.

    • planetClaire on February 29, 2016

      Very nice although quite coconut-y so I think I will try ground almonds next time.

  • Date and walnut bread

    • tui on January 13, 2016

      I have made this recipe twice already and love it. I used a loaf pan measuring about 25cm by 12 cm, and which is about 7 cm deep. The recipe produced a large beautifully moist loaf, but firm enough to slice well. Definitely one to add to my baking repertoire.

    • Sparkles75 on July 27, 2019

      This is a great recipe. In my recipe file I have a similar recipe for date nutloaf given to me by my aunty who is known as a fabulous cook. The two recipes are very similar however her recipe included sultanas and less walnuts. Also the dates and nuts are chopped . I have to say I really love how Annabel's recipe has kept the dates and walnuts whole. They taste amazing in the loaf and I will be making this version moving forward .

  • Scandinavian cinnamon buns

    • onetui on December 02, 2016

      1 1/2 teaspoons of freshly ground cardamom was too much. Next time I'd cut it back to 1/2 teaspoon. Lovely otherwise.

  • Spaghetti lentilaise

    • planetClaire on February 29, 2016

      Great basic vego heatlhy family pasta sauce - subbed capsicums for mushrooms. The family loved it.

  • Smoked mozzarella tart

    • lou_weez on July 14, 2019

      The pastry for this tart was quick and easy to work with and the filling was delicious. An impressive looking tart. I made this the day before and it reheated beautifully.

  • Greek-style fish with fennel and green olives

    • JBM on June 15, 2019

      This was realllly tasty. I used cherry tomatoes and just blitzed them up, which worked beautifully. The 5 min resting time out of the oven was enough for our fish (Kingfish) to go cold, however, so next time I’ll turn off the oven and leave it in there to rest. Is great with brown rice and some green beans. Quick, healthy, delicious.
