Chocolate Peppermint Cream Cupcakes

A little bit of cool, a little bit of sweet and a whole mouthful of indulgence from Dr Oetker

Spiced Citrus Cake

This is a wonderfully light, fluffy cake due to the airy whisked egg whites folded in. Subtly scented with spices and lightly fragranced with citrus, this cake is perfect with a cup of tea. Or serve as a dessert with Greek yoghurt and fresh fruit if you want a lighter finish to a meal. I've used vanilla bean paste here which is one of my Pantry Pals (I love the aroma and natural sweetness of real vanilla seeds). The solid ingredients in this cake are measured in millilitres, so use your measuring jug instead of weighing scales.

Churros French Toast Fingers

Churros, also known as the Mexican doughnut, are deep fried cylindrical shaped pastries. These are often served with cinnamon sugar and a chocolate dunking sauce. I don't like deep fried foods, so I have adapted good old fashioned French toast and given it a churros ish twist. I've added a bit of orange to complement the cinnamon and chocolate. An ooey gooey messy dessert, great fun for kids to make-chocolate everywhere!

Monica's Magic Molten Chocolate Pudding

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 quantitites.

Jewelled Chinese 5 Spice Duck Salad

One of my favourite recipes for entertaining, this salad looks fabulous for Christmas with ruby red pomegranate jewels and juicy mango. The ish ingredient is Chinese 5 Spice which is an aromatic blend of spices that marries perfectly with luxurious duck breasts. Toasted sesame oil, another ish factor, and plenty of fresh lime, finishes off this very special sensational salad.
