Basically a pastry tart, the distinctive taste comes from the mixture of moist sugar and lemon. The original "cross bar over" is generally agreed to mean a lattice of pastry strips across the top, but the most attractive versions include the shape of Liverpool's liver bird in one form or another. The dark sugar gives a strong treacle flavour.

Toffee Apple Tart

This is a fantastic dessert that I love to make for friends as they can’t get enough of it. The combination of toffee and apples is a fairground classic but feel free to try it with pears, bananas, even strawberries.

Occasion Casual Dinner Party, Family Get-together

Dietary Consideration halal, kosher, peanut free, soy free, tree nut free, vegetarian

Taste and Texture bubbly, buttery, creamy, crisp, fruity, juicy, rich, sweet

Type of Dish dessert, fruit, tart

Ingredients

  • Optional: 1 vanilla pod
  • 125g/4 ½ oz butter
  • 100g/3 ¾ oz icing sugar (confectioners' sugar)
  • A small pinch of salt
  • 255g/9oz flour
  • Zest of ½ a lemon
  • 2 egg yolks
  • 2 tablespoons cold milk or water
  • 2 x 397g tins of condensed milk or 2 jars of Merchant Gourmet Dulce de Leche toffee
  • 4 medium-sized cooking apples
  • 2 heaped tablespoons icing sugar (confectioners' sugar)

Instructions

Put your unopened tins of condensed milk in a high-sided pan, covered with water. Bring to the boil, then reduce the heat and simmer constantly for about 3 hours with a lid on top. It’s very important to remember to keep checking the pan, as you don’t want it to boil dry – otherwise the tins will explode. It will give you the most amazing toffee. Put the tins to one side and allow to cool.

First of all, you need to make your pastry. Score down the length of the vanilla pod, if using, and remove the seeds by scraping a knife down the inside of each half (keep the pod for making vanilla sugar). Cream together the butter, icing sugar and salt and then rub in the flour, vanilla seeds, lemon zest and egg yolks – you can do all this by hand or in a food processor. When the mixture looks like coarse breadcrumbs, add the cold milk or water. Pat and gently work the mixture together until you have a ball of dough, then flour it lightly and roll it into a large sausage shape – don’t work the pastry too much otherwise it will become too elastic and chewy, not flaky and short as you want it to be. Wrap the dough in clingfilm and place in the fridge to rest for at least an hour.

Remove it from the fridge, slice it up and line a 28cm/11-inch tart mould with the slivers. Push them together, then tidy up the sides by trimming off any excess. Place the tart mould into the freezer for an hour. Preheat the oven to 180ºC/350ºF/gas 4, then take the pastry case out of the freezer and bake for around 15 minutes or until lightly golden. Remove from the oven and place to one side. Peel and quarter the apples and remove the cores, then slice finely and toss in the icing sugar. Smear the caramel from both tins of condensed milk over the pastry. Place the apples on top and pour any remaining juices over. Cook at the bottom of the preheated oven for about 40 minutes to give you a crispy base and bubbling toffee over the apples. Serve with vanilla ice cream. Beautiful!


Mushroom and Gruyère tart

A great vegetarian Christmas dinner option - the rich mushrooms are perfect with gravy, and gruyère feels a bit special and worthy of your Christmas plate. The strong flavours mean any leftovers are delicious the following day too.

This dish would be a great vegetarian Christmas dinner option - the rich mushrooms are perfect with gravy, and since gruyère is a little more expensive than a lot of cheeses, it feels a bit special and worthy of your Christmas plate. It's just the thing to have pride of place in the middle of the table, so everyone can go back for an extra slice whenever they fancy (probably every few minutes, considering how tasty this was!).

Perhaps my favourite thing about this tart is that it's just as nice cold as it is warm, so if any slices manage to escape the Christmas dinner table uneaten, they'll make a great lunch the next day with salad and coleslaw, and perhaps a slice of bread. I didn't bother to reheat mine, and it was still absolutely delicious - in fact, if anything the flavours are even stronger when the tart is cold.

Putting together this tart is really easy - I used shop-bought shortcrust pastry, so all I needed to do was to roll it out nice and thin, and then blind bake it for twenty minutes or so while I prepared the filling ingredients. Of course you could make your own pastry if you prefer, but I see no shame in using some shop-bought ingredients every now and then.

The first layer of the tart is my secret ingredient - a layer of mushroom pâté. This helps the tart to stay nice and fluffy, as well as ensuring that the rich mushroom flavour is present throughout its whole depth. The pâté is then covered with a thin layer of egg, fresh parsley, sautéed mushrooms, and finally the gruyère cheese, which provides a nice melty topping.

I'll definitely be making this mushroom and gruyère tart again next Christmas - it's easy to put together, and its versatility means that it can be served for lunch, dinner - or even your main Christmas feast.


How to Make Tonic Water

We started the experiment to create our own recipe with 3 criteria:

  1. The syrup had to be delicious, but subtle enough to accentuate, not overpower the gin flavor.
  2. It had to be cold extracted because cooked citrus zest tastes, well, cooked.
  3. It needed to be just barely sweet and pleasantly bitter.

We decided to try 2 versions - both had the basics: cinchona bark (the natural source of quinine), and citric acid (necessary for extraction and helpful for preserving).

The first version had just citrus zest and lemongrass. The second had zest, lemongrass, and other botanicals: cardamom, lavender, allspice.

We filled our jars with filtered water, shook them daily, and allowed them to steep for 72 hours. I firmly believed that the version without the additional botanicals would prevail.

Think of vanilla extract. Take in that incredible aroma and you're tempted to take a swig. Or you were tempted before you tried it straight the first time. On it's own, the extract is bitter and pungent. But in the proper proportion, added to a sugary or savory recipe, is matchless. Tonic syrup is like that.

You can't try a couple of syrups straight and determine which is superior. You have to make a proper drink and try them side by side. Work, work, work!

We did our careful taste-testing and were surprised by the result. Both were excellent. Both were missing something. So we took a chance and combined the two. And, Success ! Really, the BEST gin and tonic either of us had ever tasted.

What began as rivalry ended in alliance.

Traditional Scottish Cakes

21. Black Bun

Image credit: IMBJR CC BY-SA 3.0 via Wikimedia Commons

A fruit cake covered in pastry, the Black Bun was originally introduced in Scotland following the return of Mary Queen of Scots from France. Traditionally, it had a bean hidden inside the cake and the person who found it was declared King or Queen for the evening. Today it is still consumed as part of the Hogmanay New Year festivities in Scotland.

22. Dundee Cake

With a history going back to the 19th Century, the Dundee Cake is a Scottish fruit cake made with currants, sultanas and almonds. Popular belief is that Mary Queen of Scots didn’t like cherries in her cakes, so a fruit cake was created for her using almonds instead of cherries.

And here our cake eating bonanza came to an end, just before we crossed the pond to Northern Ireland and our waistlines started getting wider. There are two very important things we learned during our British cake off.

Not everything called a cake in the UK is in fact a cake. Not everything not called a cake isn't one.

There are many other local recipes worth tasting as well as national favourites such as carrot cake, scones, Madeira cake and the list goes on… So why not travel around our beautiful islands tasting its sweet secrets? Don’t forget to tell us what yummy treats you found on your city break. Meanwhile, keep calm and eat cake.
