Answers to answers to my question about frosting for my Peach Custard Bundt Cake…

  1.  rightorder answered: I think that sounds delicious. You could always make an easy icing with some powdered sugar and vanilla, water or milk. Drizzle it on.
  2.  missminifer answered: Would peach glace icing work?
  3.  dannyandthebfg answered: Oh my god, don’t make me salivate I have no food nor any money.
  4.  rexyrexaw answered: That sounds amazing. My gods…

  5. Thank you all for answering!! I love that you all don’t think cold custard is weird as a cake frosting! I personally love cold custard. If I don’t have the ingredients left for more homemade custard I like the idea of icing/powdered sugar & vanilla/milk.

Blackcurrant Fool Cake

6oz butter


10oz sugar


4 eggs


2 tbsp plain yogurt


4 tbsp blackcurrant fool


8oz flour


½ tsp baking powder


zest of one lemon


Heat the oven to 180C. Cream together the butter and sugar. Beat in the eggs. Stir in the lemon zest. Stir in the yogurt and blackcurrant fool. Fold in the flour and baking powder. Grease a bundt pan or two round cake tins and pour the mixture in. Bake for 45-55 minutes. Leave to cool for 10 minutes then turn out onto a plate. Leave to cool completely. If using two round tins, sandwich the two layers together with blackcurrant fool or blackcurrant jam and/or whipped cream and top with blackcurrant fool or blackcurrant jam and/or whipped cream. If using a bundt pan, drizzle with blackcurrant fool.

Note: It comes out a gorgeous purple colour so I really want to try making it again with lavender in it.

Egg-less Chocolate Cookie Dough Brownie Biscuits

These biscuits are adapted from a Brownie Roll-Out Cookie Recipe. However I have named these adaptations ‘Egg-less Chocolate Cookie Dough Brownie Biscuits' becauseI was just planning on following the recipe to the dot until I realized I didn't have any eggs. So they are egg-less. Because of this it meant the dough tastes amazing and can be eaten raw as cookie dough without the danger of eating raw egg. So I figured I could bake them until the edges are firm but the center is still yummy & cookie doughy. I took them to a meet up with friends and everyone complimented them and were surprised when I told them they didn't contain eggs. 

Egg-less Chocolate Cookie Dough Brownie Biscuits Recipe:

  • 1 lb, 8oz self raising flour
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 3 tbsp mixed spice
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 8 oz butter
  • 12 oz sugar
  • 1 tbsp apple sauce
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 3 oz unsweetened cocoa

Preheat oven to 180C. In a bowl mix flour, salt, cocoa,mixed spice,sugar and baking powder in bowl and set aside. Melt butter and mix with apple sauce and vanilla. Gradually add to flour mixture, and mix until smooth. Wrap in cling film and chill for at least one hour.

Roll out cookie dough on floured counter. Cut into desired shapes, brushing extra deposits of flour off the top. (It does disappear once baked, though, so don’t overly fret if they go into the oven looking white.) Bake on a greaseproof paper lined baking tray for 8 to 11 minutes until the edges are just firm and the centers are still raw (cookie dough). Serve warm with ice cream.

Hungarian Veal Stew – Borjúpörkölt

This is a thick, rich, spicy and easy-to-make stew. (serves 4)

  • 3-4 tbsp oil or lard
  • 1 medium onion, finely chopped
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1,5 or 2 pounds veal shoulder, cut into 1-inch cubes
  • 2 tbsp paprika
  • ½ cup red wine (optional)
  • salt and pepper

Heat the oil or lard in a large saucepan over medium heat. Add the onions and garlic, fry gently until onion is golden. Add the veal and cook until the meat is browned. Draw the saucepan to an unheated stove plate and sprinkle on the paprika, salt and pepper and stir. (if you add paprika whilst the saucepan is on the heated stove plate, the paprika might get a bittersweet flavor and it’ll ruin the whole dish). Reduce the heat to medium low, add red wine and water to cover the meat. Partially cover the saucepan and simmer until the meat is tender (about 45 minutes). Sometimes you must check it and if needed add some water. Serve with dumplings, noodles or rice.

I visited Looe Food Festival on Saturday. It was lovely, though very small. There was a guy who cooked with and sold seaweed he foraged himself. I took a few photographs of the festival.
