Chocolate Panettone

From: Today

Catherine says: "Living in Ireland, I used to think of panettone as a very dry Italian Christmas cake until I tasted one that had been freshly made in Sicily. I was totally converted – I could easily devour half of one in a single sitting! I bake these as individual little panettone cakes for friends. They are so good served with a glass of dessert wine or even Marsala.

Festive Chocolate Pops

Fun for all the family!

Monica’s Berry Baileys Meringue Roulade

Rozanne says: "This is my mom’s favourite dessert – a gorgeous confection of marshmallowy meringue, plenty of summer berries and whipped cream. I love adding a good splash of Baileys Irish cream liqueur for a little sophistication."

Monica's Magic Molten Chocolate Pudding

Rozanne says: "This is my mom's recipe and it is the easiest, most decadent chocolate pudding. It is like a giant chocolate fondant baked in a lasagne type dish. There are two parts to the recipe, a sponge batter and a sauce. These get made separately and then poured into the dish. They curdle and look strange, but during baking they separate and you get chocolate sponge on the top and a rich dark chocolate sauce underneath. Serve warm with cream or ice cream and fresh or frozen berries. Some of the solid ingredients are measured by volume in millilitres, so use your measuring spoons for small amounts and your measuring jug for larger quantities."

Chocolate Oatmeal Cookies

The pinhead oatmeal in these biscuits gives them their distinctive crunch. Very thin. Very crispy. Very delicious.

White and Sweet Potato Gratin

From: Neven Maguire: Home Chef

This is a variation on my favourite accompaniment. It is great for Christmas Day as it can be made in advance and reheated in individual potions on a baking sheet. It also keeps well in a cool oven.

Mincemeat

From: Today

This delicious mincemeat will keep happily in a cool dark place for at least a year. If you are preparing your own suet (the fat that surrounds the beef kidney), make sure that every trace of blood has been removed before you whiz it in the food processor, otherwise it will cause the mincemeat to go off.
