Goats Cheese, Red Onion and Thyme Quiche

From: Kitchen Hero: Donal's Irish Feast

This quiche uses a soft curd goat’s cheese, which is wonderfully smooth and light with clean lemony flavours with hints of flowers and sweetness that develop when pared with the caramelised red onions.

Banana Bread with Almond Butter and Chocolate Chips

From: Kitchen Hero: Donal's Irish Feast

These mini banana bread loaves are deliciously moist and are extremely easy to throw together. I’ve added some chocolate chips to this recipe but you could use some toasted chopped nuts instead if you prefer. This recipe will also fill a 900ml loaf tin and will take about 50 minutes to cook in the oven.

Barmbrack Parfit with Whiskey Prunes

From: Kitchen Hero: Donal's Irish Feast

This is a very smart dessert that everyone will think you’ve spent ages making. Of course you can spike the prunes with any alcohol but I love the combination of prunes with Irish whiskey.

Chocolate Orange Tart

From: Kitchen Hero: Donal's Irish Feast

This decadent and delicious chocolate orange tart is perfect for a dinner party dessert. Serve up generous slices on its own or with a scoop of good quality vanilla ice cream and cups of coffee!

Peanut Parfait

From: Neven Maguire: Home Chef

This can be made up to 1 month in advance and kept in an airtight container in the freezer until needed.

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.
