A rich chocolate cake, but with the Sachertorte’s legendary layer of apricot jam, this recipe for Apricot Chocolate Fudge Cake is a perfect blend of simplicity and flavour. Not only does the jam add a fruity element to an otherwise decadent cake, it contributes complexity in the form of sweetness, ensuring that every mouthful is as interesting as the last.
As a country that’s between 20% and 40% vegetarian, it’s unsurprising that India has a wide selection of vegetarian food to choose from. Paneer cheese is a particularly widespread alternative to meat, actively used across South Asian cuisine. Saag Paneer is a classic North Indian dish, which like mutter paneer has made its way firmly onto our plates in the West.
Flapjacks occupy a strange and confused culinary corner. By virtue of their many oats, like oatcakes or porridge, flapjacks are considered healthy. This is, by and large, a lie.

Weekends are the perfect time to enjoy simple, indulgent lunches full of wonderful produce. With its powerful cheddar and rich butter, this recipe for Leek Toasties couldn’t be nearer the ideal.

Some proclaim to dislike its texture, but that’s probably because they haven’t had the right rice pudding. This recipe for Spiced Rice Pudding is the right one.
