Pork Satay Roll

With half a pack of leftover lean pork mince in the fridge which needed using and very little time and patience due to a muscle pull in my shoulder I had to make something easy. I mean easy!! I raided the cupboards and found a jar of Satay sauce from Tesco and so the Pork… Continue reading Pork Satay Roll

Lo-Dough Potato Cakes

This is a simple no waffle recipe that really enhances your breakfast. I woke this morning to Ken asking, I am making breakfast, do you want a 'tata cake' in a true Lancashire accent. That's because it's where we originate from! 'No ta' I replied having that instant lightbulb moment! My best recipes come just… Continue reading Lo-Dough Potato Cakes

Mini Cherry Bakewell Bites

These are a baked oats kind of texture. Not crunchy like a biscuit, not as soft as cake, a sort of in between result. The whole recipe makes 9 mini bites and if you are a grazer these are just the ticket to satisfy that sweet craving too. This is a meeting between Lo-Dough and… Continue reading Mini Cherry Bakewell Bites

‘Rag Style’ Beef Puddings

Coming from Lancashire I was brought up on Rag Puddings. My mum used to make these gorgeous Puddings, wrapped and steamed in rags - usually from torn up white cotton sheets! It was a Lancashire tradition and there are still some businesses in Lancashire who make delicious Puddings from traditional recipes. There are also variations… Continue reading ‘Rag Style’ Beef Puddings

Banana and Salted Caramel Mug Cake with a Peanut Butter Drizzle

What a great combination! The sweetness of the banana with the sweet saltiness of the caramel and a decadent drizzle of peanut butter (optional) makes this one of my most indulgent cakes so far. But although it's indulgent it doesn't break the calorie bank. I couldn't wait to make this cake and going to work… Continue reading Banana and Salted Caramel Mug Cake with a Peanut Butter Drizzle
