3 Scrumptious Pancake Recipes

3 Scrumptious Pancake Recipes

The first Dairy Book of Home Cookery was published over 50 years ago, and people have been feeding their families from it ever since.

This cookery ‘bible’ has all those essentials in it that we turn to time-after-time.

The pancake recipe must have been used hundreds of thousands, if not millions of times.

I like to think about the fun had by so many families when cooking this recipe – the glee from the children allowed pancakes mid-week, the giggles shared when attempting to toss a pancake, the debates about which toppings are best.

Tomorrow is Shrove Tuesday, so get whisking and treat yourself to a chuckle trying to flip your pancakes.

5 Restaurant-Style Recipes for Valentine’s Day at Home

5 Restaurant-Style Recipes for Two

No, I can’t believe its Valentine’s Day tomorrow either…

However, if anything, this past year has brought my partner and me closer than ever, and I am grateful for the endless cups of tea and the support he showed when things were difficult.

To express my appreciation, I am going to prepare a lovely restaurant-style meal for two, using delicious recipes from the cookbook Just For One Or Two.

Neither of us are starter-people, so for the main: Griddled Lamb with Fresh Pesto, served with soft and creamy celeriac mash, and wholesome ratatouille. Then for dessert: Lemon Posset topped with fresh juicy berries, one of his absolute favourites!

For more inspiration on how you can treat your loved one – which is not limited to Valentine’s Day! – take a look at our recipe collection, Restaurant-Style Meals for 2.

Win a copy of Just For One or Two

Of course, Valentine’s Day could not be celebrated properly without showing the love we have for our customers, so we are giving away a copy of the popular Just For One Or Two, which is full of perfect recipes for a restaurant-style dinner, at home.

Enter below by telling us how many recipes are found within the book. You can find the answer on Just For One Or Two’s page here.

Travel with your tastebuds

Cumberland Rum Nicky

One of my goals for 2020 was to travel to various cities and towns without stepping foot on an aeroplane

 

I wanted to explore the British Isles, discover regional food and learn about local traditions. Obviously, we weren’t able to do this, so I am hoping I can at least start my UK travels in 2021.

Top of my list is Cumbria – I have visited Bowness-on-Windermere and adored every second, I definitely want to return as soon as I can!

My passion to explore the UK was inspired by our popular cookbook Around Britain, which features this fabulous dessert.

Cumberland Rum Nicky is a classic dish from Cumberland in the Northwest of England and is packed full of dried fruit, ginger and rum.

Recipe of the Week: Bakewell Tart

Bakewell Tart

Every Sunday, we enjoy a ‘proper pud’

 

The children don’t have to listen to ‘have a yogurt’ or ‘get a piece of fruit’, we all enjoy something thoroughly enjoyable and decadent.

This has to be planned in with our meals as a weekly essential, and if I forget there’s much complaining ‘but it’s Sunday’. Meal planning used to take place on the back of an old letter or envelope, but I now have the pleasure of a real Meal Planner.

 

Make planning more pleasurable with our brand-new Meal Planner!

Dairy Diary Meal Planner Pad with shopping listThe Meal Planner lists the days of the week down the side and has a column for lunch and evening meal as well as an entry for notes at the bottom. There’s also a lined tear-off shopping list on the right. It even has a hole drilled at the top should you wish to hang it up to keep it off the kitchen surface.

This is an invaluable tool in helping to reduce food waste as you can plan what you’re going to eat and buy only what you need and will actually use; thus saving money too! Win, win.

You’ll find the Meal Planner in the 2021 Dairy Diary Set and the Pocket Diary Set.

Both available to buy now!

 

For this week’s dessert, I’ve chosen the original Bakewell Tart

It may be different from the one you recognise, but it’s the original (and I think, the best!)

It follows the traditional recipe from the Rutland Arms in Bakewell and uses puff pastry, raspberry jam and ground almonds.

This irresistible recipe is taken from our Around Britain cookbook (one of my all-time favourite cookbooks)

This beautiful book showcases recipes and images from around the British Isles and contains lots of fabulous cakes and puddings, some with quite comical names, such as Wet Nellie and Singin’ Hinnies.

Around Britain cookbook is a lovely Christmas present for someone who enjoys baking.

Stir Up Sunday: The Perfect Christmas Pudding recipe

Christmas Pudding

Tomorrow is known as Stir Up Sunday, when tradition suggests we make the Christmas Pudding

 

There is a myriad of recipes for Christmas pud, but the traditional version would contain 13 ingredients to represent Jesus and his disciples.

Sometimes charms or coins were (and still are) added and were said to bring luck if you found one in your portion (unless you broke your tooth on it of course!) Find out more about this tradition here.

The Dairy Book of Home CookeryOur classic recipe, from the Dairy Book of Home Cookery, has been enjoyed by families since the 1960s.

If your copy of the book has gone astray or is looking a little worse-for-wear, why not treat yourself to a new one? Find out more.

Recipe of the Week: Toffee Apple Crumble

Toffee Apple Crumble

Crumble Night

 

‘Crumble Night’ was an almost weekly event with my university flatmates and me, where we took turns to make our favourite pud to share.

It was a love we all had in common, helping to form our friendships for the next three years and beyond.

Whilst it may not be all that great for the waistline to enjoy every day, crumble reminds me of those autumnal evenings and brings a smile to my face.

I may have to resurrect this tasty tradition in our house!

Toffee Apple Crumble, a gorgeous recipe from the 2021 Dairy Diary is the perfect way to begin the season, now that the nights are growing darker and the golden leaves start to fall.

Best served with custard or cream of course!
