1. Old-fashioned chocolate cake from ‘Feast’ by Nigella Lawson.
I really, really love this cake, in fact I’ve lost count now of the many times I’ve made it. It really is a fail-safe chocolate cake, that is intensely chocolatey, but also because of the addition of the sour cream, it’s not sickly at all, but it is very, very moreish.
I like that both the cake and then the lovely chocolate frosting are made in the food processor, so minimal faffing about.
2. Breakfast bars from ‘Nigella Express’ by Nigella Lawson.
These really should be called ‘superfood bars’. I’m always constantly surprised, every time I make them, at the number of ‘superfoods’ going into these little beauties – oats, cranberries, pumpkin seeds, sunflower seeds, coconut.
I love the fact that they contain no added fat, ok so they contain a whole tin of condensed milk, but no other added sugar. In my opinion, there are many less healthy things that one could have for breakfast.
