Baked eggs with ibérico ham and parmesan

Most of you will know that we got three beautiful hens a few weeks ago. Only one of them is laying so far and the eggs have been quite sporadic, until recently when we’ve been getting one every day. Although we currently have 5 Bantam eggs sitting in our egg rack, I have to admit that the eggs in this recipe aren’t from our hens, they are from my boyfriends parents hens down in Chichester. We had some ibérico ham in the fridge that needed eating so I made a delicious dish of baked eggs with ibérico ham and parmesan for dinner. This dish is exceptionally easy and fast – it only takes about 15 minutes from start to finish, if that! Serve with a couple of slices of bread drizzled with extra virgin olive oil and sprinkle with sea salt. Ingredients 2 large cloves garlic 6 slices of ibérico ham (or enough to cover the pan that you want to use) 4 large free range eggs sprinkle of curly leaf parsley – about 4 …

Banana and Cinnamon Loaf Recipe

Don’t worry, I’m not going to preach to you about how amazing Australia is for brunches and fresh cakes again, although the banana bread there was what lead me to make my mind up about the country being the best. I baked my first loaf of Banana Bread a couple of years ago and was absolutely bowled over at how amazingly easy it is to bake and how delicious it tastes toasted with a smothering of butter on top. It’s just too good. This recipe is for a simple Banana and Cinnamon loaf – just bung all of the ingredients in a bowl, mix, pop into a loaf tin and an hour and a half later, you can tuck into it warm! YUM! My loaf tin wasn’t as big as I needed so I used mini loaf tins for the left over batter. They are a great size for one serving and look pretty too. Ingredients 225g self-raising flour 100g unsalted butter, softened 2 eggs 150g golden caster sugar 3 very ripe bananas, peeled and …

Lime, Vanilla and Almond Madeleines

My first memory of Madeleines is on my family holiday in Ibiza. Bet you didn’t expect me to say that did you? Well, there was a little bakery next to the hotel that we stayed in every year and most days I would take a wander down with my brother, buy a sweet treat for the family and take it back to the swimming pool. They sold the most delicious Cream Cakes and Madeleines. I also had fun making my way through large packs that you could buy in the supermarket. I found them delicious – rich and sweet with a fantastic vanilla taste. So I am surprised that I only baked them for the first time last week. I guess I had never got around to buying the special tin – until Lakeland had an offer on just before Christmas time. I spotted it and thought I’d give them a go. I also received a great present through the post last week, which spurred me on even more. When I was on holiday in …
