Carrot and Cardamom Cake with Cinnamon Cream Cheese Frosting

From: Kitchen Hero: Great Food for Less

Carrot 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 cinnamon cream cheese frosting. If you want to go all out, you can make mini carrots out of marzipan with a little orange food colouring and angelica root for the stalks.

Profiterole Mountain

From: Kitchen Hero: HomeCooked

I remember staying in an old Irish guesthouse when I was growing up, where a dessert trolley was rolled around the dining room after dinner and you could pick a dessert of your choice. I could never resist creamy profiteroles smothered in a warm, thick chocolate sauce.

Dad’s Braised Oxtail

From: Kevin Dundon's Christmas Made Easy

Any time you ask my dad about food he always brings up oxtail. I’m fairly sure it would be his dessert island dish. When he tried out this recipe, he told me it was "bloody great!" so I think it got his seal of approval! If you haven’t cooked oxtail before the aim is to cook them until the meat just falls off the bone. I serve mine sitting proudly on top of some creamy colcannon mash.

From: Kitchen Hero: HomeCooked

True comfort food in a matter of minutes; that's what this dish is all about. Crispy chicken in a white wine sauce with wonderful braised greens and a pop of zesty citrus freshness; it really doesn't get better than that for a speedy midweek supper.
