I’ve been wanting to make Lamingtons, for quite some time now but when my son said he wanted a chocolate cake with coconut for MY BIRTHDAY…then that worked for me! I’m just really happy we like the same sweet things lol!
A massive chunky, glossy ganache covered chocolate fudge cake topped off with naturally crunchy sweet coconut! Ummmm loved it! We all did!
I had to share some cake with you all…I hope you enjoy it, as much as we did! Have a beautiful day friends! See you soon! Much love, D x
Cocoa & Banana both from the tropics is an amazing combination! This sponge cake came out super moist, light and airy.
Both my son and his grandfather enjoyed it. It’s great, that it’s low in fat and the moisture and decadence comes from the lush bananas. Do let me know how you like it. Have a wonderful day, much love D x
My husband is always watching Indian street food videos on YouTube. This is one particular dish that he was checking and that I was extremely intrigued by.
I think you all know me by now, in that I love to cook really, really simple food and am not embarrassed in taking short cuts to get to the final yummy result!
This is one of those easy than easier recipes, yet so satisfying and filling. The protein hit from the egg and cheese really reaches the spot! Make sure that you have some ready made parathas or frozen parathas like I used in this recipe and you are ready to go my friends!
Enjoy, see you soon! Much love, D x
Frozen paratha/ready made paratha
Grated mature cheddar cheese
Spring onion sliced
Chopped fresh coriander
Salt and pepper to taste
Place the frozen paratha in a frying pan and cook through on both sides to a medium golden brown. Spread a little butter on one side
Crack one egg onto the buttered paratha and break the yolk gently. Load on all other ingredients and seasoning
Cover with a large lid on a low heat for 5 or so minutes or until egg is firm
Fold the paratha and serve with a hot chilli sauce
Finally I was able to get my hands on a waffle maker. I saw it sitting pretty in my parents kitchen and I knew I had to borrow it. My 4 year old loves sweet waffles so I thought why not try some savoury ones. But they weren’t for him! However my husband and I, just couldn’t stop eating them!
I think what makes them so moreish is the melted butter that is added to the batter. Makes the waffles taste wonderful and crispy. So simple to prepare but you will need a waffle maker. Hope you enjoy them friends!
1-3/4 cups plain flour
1 tablespoon baking powder
1 tablespoon sugar
1/2 teaspoon salt
1-1/2 cups milk
1/4 cup butter melted
1/2 cup cheddar cheese, grated
Mix all the dry ingredients in a large bowl
Add the melted butter, milk and eggs. Combine well. Throw in the cheese and give a final stir
Cook waffles in the waffle maker upon instructions
Top with avocado, cherry tomatoes and more grated mature cheddar cheese!
I woke up this morning to a husband who was preparing breakfast in the kitchen. Having lots of chives that he has grown and takes pride of place in our herb garden on our window sill, he used them on these eggs he cooked.
A hint of onioness with the mature hit of cheddar cheese all over a delicious creamy and soft buttery yolk! I could eat these eggs over and over. Probably will as we have lots of chives to use up.
Hope you’re all having a fantastic day!
1 large egg
Handful of mature cheddar grated
Sprinkling of fresh chives
Heat a little olive oil in a frying pan on a low heat. Crack the egg with yolk in tact. Cover and cook for a minute or so. Depending how runny you want your egg
Top the egg with cheese and chives. Cover again and cook until cheese has melted
When I see potential ingredients waiting to be used, I don’t hang about! I had to turn a couple of lonely ripened bananas into something more yummy. Then the ideas started flowing and I decided on a banana loaf with coconut. Quick, satisfying and a sweet comfort on this winter morning that looks like spring time but is still holding onto the winter temperatures!
I distributed most of it amongst some friends, I hope they enjoyed it! It’s great that it’s low in fat and the moisture and decadence comes from the lush bananas. Do let me know how you like it. Have a wonderful day, much love D x
