Does anyone know how to stop cherries sinking in a cake when cooking? I made an almond and cherry cake which was very nice but all the cherries were at the bottom which I know was not the case when I put the mix in the oven.

Roll them in flour first before adding them in

It appeared to. The cherries whilst still being fonder of the lower half of the cake were not slouched at the very bottom this time.

Just finished off a bowl of french onion soup and it was delicious! I got the recipe from Sam Sterns student cookbook. Not a fan of his, tried making rice his way once and it came out like a brick so I didn't go near the book again but was bored today so thought I would try this. It used chicken stock cubes instead of the usual beef and a big glug of cider. It was very very nice. Lovely sweet undertaste from the cider. I was worried that the huge amount of stock I was told to put in would make it taste like chicken stock soup but it didn't at all. It was very nice. The sourdough bloomer I had with it was also very nice!

Now having a wee rest before I start the second of todays new dishes, chorizo and chickpea chicken casserole.

Made a chocolate orange cheesecake on Sunday. Followed the recipe but it made it a bit too heavy. I'll make it again but with less butter in the Hob-Nob base and I'll not bother with the icing sugar or double cream in the topping.

My cupboards have been so bare these past few days that, now that they're a little bit full, I'm genuinely looking forward to breakfast tomorrow morning; weetabix, greek yoghurt and raisins.

I forgot to buy honey...

Really gotten into making big bowls of hot noodle soup... a single nest of wheat noodles with quick-fried veg on top, topped with either grilled chicken or salmon, then covered in a steaming hot vegetable stock. Really nice on a gloomy day like today. Reasonably healthy too.

I have some Chicken, Chorizo and red pepper soup for later. It will probably be lacking in the chicken and chorizo stakes but I shall see. That reminds me I need to get a turnip to as I have a recipe for chorizo soup.

I made sticky toffee pudding today for the first time. Gotta say, there is nothing quite as satisfying as watching someone enjoy the cakes you bake them!

Well I think this was discussed a wee bit last year, but this year I am making my first entirely vegetarian Christmas dinner, and was wondering if anyone had any recommendations? Unfortunately a nut roast is not an option due to allergies of one of the guests.

In my experience as a meat-eater serving up a roast to a vegetarian, I've always served them gigantic grilled mushrooms instead of meat, and the rest was all the same (roasties cooked in Olive Oil rather than animal fat, naturally). Sage and onion stuffing goes down well too. The only thing "left off" as it were was bacon wrapped saussies.

And they loved it!

Does anyone know if any of the supermarkets sell a nice Christmas pudding that doesn't contain alcohol? I can't seem to find one anywhere.

I've had that before actually, and it was really nice. I was planning on using squash as part of the starter though, so I might have to re-arrange some stuff.

Just give them a plate load of brussel sprouts, after all they chose their affliction. Has anyone tried balsamic vinegar on sprouts, it's supposed to be good.

I did think the Heston candied orange/clementinte one from Waitrose didn't have alcohol (I could not taste any last year) but it turns out it has 3% sherry. So in fact this comment is no help at all.

http://www.thepuddingshop.co.uk/shop/christmas/non-alcoholic-recipe.html

There is an online place which appears to sell them mail order if that is any help?

Yes, I'm currently whittling an X Box as I type.


Decided to go for a mushroom and oat type loaf that my sister recommended to me, with a port and rosemary sauce, saffron roasties, braised red cabbage and a few other trimmings.

Managed to do a cheese sauce tonight. I am very proud of myself! Past attempts have ended up with me furiously sieving all the lumps of flour out but seems the secret is take the flour/butter paste off the heat when adding the milk. Worked perfectly!

It's a small victory, I admit but it made me feel very happy and my cauliflower cheese was very yummy!

I am presently consuming a Heston hidden candied orange Christmas pudding. Considering i am the only person here who eats Christmas pudding it may have been an error to get the orange rather than Clementine one as it is massive. I must admit i am not a great fan of the peanuts in there though.

I had a Whopper for the first time in ages the other night...not sure they can get away with calling it a Whopper anymore as it was way, way smaller than they used to be. Looked the same size as the bacon double cheese burger...bastards!

I was telling the missus about one of my childhood favourites - the steak & kidney pudding. Couldn't find one in the supermarket except a tiny microwaveable one. Fray Bentos, it seems, are only doing tinned pies now.

So I'm going to make one this weekend. Picked up some beef shin yesterday in Morrisons which was very cheap and don't often see it. No kidneys in there though but they usually do have them in there. Pastry is not really my thing so I'm going to rope this missus in to help with that. Looks quite straightforward and similar to shortcrust just with suet in as well. Then it's a case of lining a pudding/cake tin (which I need to buy), filling it with the slow-cooked beef, chucking the lid on and then steaming for about 45 mins.

Not that this is any help to you, but most of the supermarkets near me still sell the FB steak and kidney puds. Damn nice they are, too.
