Rum And Raisin Loaf

Written by McDonald, T.   |  Date 27th of November 2023   Whatever the occasions, this is a great treat to be had.  The rum soaks into the raisins and results in a perfect infusion of flavours. The rum adds flavour to the raisins while the raisins add sweetness to the run.  This beautiful bread as a great bready texture, yet is fruity and warming to the soul. Although it doesn't need it, you can choose to dust it with icing sugar.

Spicy Carrot and Parsnip Soup

Written by McDonald, T.   |  Date 20th of November 2023 This soup is surprisingly sweet.  Both the carrots and the parsnips have a sweet taste; however, the sweet spicy flavour of the Green Ginger Wine just takes it to a new level.  I like this soup because it is so tasty and filling.  Furthermore, it provides a huge amount of vitamin A.

Vegan Christmas Cake

Written by McDonald, T.   |  Date 13th of November 2023 Christmas is just around the corner and you need to start your Christmas cake now!  Yes, it needs time to soak and feed.  You will have to soak the dried fruit for a week or so and once the cake is baked, you will need to feed the cake with more brandy.  Don't worry, all will be explained in this post.  This cake is completely vegan and has an amazing taste.  Holds together perfectly.  

Strawberry Sauce

Written by McDonald, T.   |  Date 6th of November 2023      This is a handy little sauce to have in your repertoire because you can use it in so many ways.  It adds something different to the desserts other than just cream or custard.  You can use it in cake fillings too.  Simple to make and great tasting.
