Polenta Tea Cake with Passion-Fruit Mascarpone

From: Today

This is really quite simple to make. It takes a little patience to cook and cool down but produces a totally satisfying deep crust crunch with a moreish moist centre and delicious polenta bite. I've used the spices here to brighten up the richness and add some oomph to the subtle, zesty clementine flavour.

Tart Tatin

From: Neven Maguire: Home Chef

This is a very impressive dessert to get done in such a short time, but it's definitely achievable by using the ready-to-roll puff pastry. Look for the all-butter version, which more supermarkets are now stocking.

Sticky Gingerbread with Lemon Drizzle

From: Today

January is a long month and the sugar-free good intentions can be put aside for a week or so, allowing us to nourish ourselves. I recently bought three ginger roots, great big sprawling things that resemble the hands of a hard working man – the ultimate healing hands, which, when grated and added to boiling water for ginger tea with honey and lemon, or used in soups, cakes, breads or stews, will sooth and revive the body and spirit. The following cake is just what the doctor ordered. Lots of healing ginger, warming cinnamon and cleansing lemon with an egg thrown in for good measure!
