Instant Strawberry Ice Cream Sundae

From: Neven Maguire: Home Chef

Watch children’s faces light up as you make these ice cream sundaes before their very eyes! The ice cream is so much better for them than anything you can buy, contains so little fat and has a really fresh flavour. If there are any adults around, they’ll be guaranteed to enjoy it just as much. Try using raspberries, which work just as well.

Here are Sunday's recipes - the Birr castle menu of Lords and Ladles.

Christmas Feast: Black Forest Brownie Trifle

From: Kitchen Hero: Donal's Irish Feast

This recipe might look a little complicated but in fact it's incredibly easy. If you're very short of time use shop-bought brownies, a carton of readymade custard that you stir the melted chocolate into and a couple of posh jars of cherries in kirsch. Whatever way you decide to do it always use the best quality dark chocolate you can afford. It's best to leave the final part of the assembly to the last minute for the most spectacular impact.

Affogato al Caffè with Dark Chocolate and Hazelnut Biscotti

From: Kitchen Hero: Donal's Irish Feast

Affogato is good at any time of year and it is an incredibly easy dessert to prepare. Choose the best vanilla ice cream you can find and make sure you use good, strong espresso (regular brewed coffee will not work here). The recipe for the biscotti makes about 30 but they keep very well in an airtight container.

Coeliac Friendly Chocolate Brownie

“If you are a chocolate lover like me, our homemade chocolate brownie will be guaranteed to satisfy your sweet tooth. It is by far our most popular Dessert here in Café 31 and has been modified to suit coeliacs who are often limited when it comes to the choices available for their final course. It’s rich, chocolaty and the coconut ice cream acts as a delicious contrast to the bitter Valhrona Chocolate we use. It will also hold well after freezing if you have leftovers, but from our experience, you won’t!”

Carrot & Courgette Cake with Rosemary & Orange Crème Fraiche

From: Kitchen Hero: Donal's Irish Feast

Carrot, courgette and cardamom are a wonderful combination of flavours. The cake itself is moist enough but for that extra special touch you can add the delicious rosemary & orange crème fraiche. If you want to go all out, you can make mini carrots and courgettes out of marzipan with a little orange and green food colouring and angelica root for the stalks. This cake will keep in the fridge for 3–5 days.

Mini Raspberry Swirl Cheesecakes

These delicious single-portion cheesecakes are the perfect summer treat. The pretty swirl created from the raspberry infusion will add a pop of colour to your day!

Oatmeal Cookies

From: Neven Maguire: Home Chef

These nutritious flapjacks keep very well in a tin. Children love their crunchy texture and they make an ideal addition to any lunchbox.

Oatmeal, Cranberry and White Chocolate Cookies

From: Neven Maguire: Home Chef

The inspiration for this recipe was given to me by Mary Flahavan. I like it so much that we now make it up in batches and keep them in Kilner jars in our rooms for guests - in case they're feeling a bit peckish after a long journey but don't want to ruin their dinner.
