Fancy making some apples baked with fruit and nuts?

Baked apples can go in the oven along with a roast or whatever else is in there, so long as the temperature is around the middling mark.

They’re equally good whether you eat them hot as pudding with vanilla ice cream, or cold from the fridge for a fruity breakfast the next day.

And of course there’s nothing to stop you having them with vanilla ice cream for breakfast, if you’re in the mood for living dangerously.

I want to tell you it went horribly wrong, that it was an inedible disaster. But I’m sorry to say it went really well, and it always has. This is a safe and easy recipe for a melt-in-the-middle sensation. Crusty on the outside, warm and gooey on the inside with the distinctive, lingering aroma of anise."

Feta And Dill Muffins...

Feta and dill savoury muffins by Nadiya Hussain.

Makes 12

Nadiya says "I know when you hear the word ‘muffin’ you probably think of the blueberry or chocolate chip variety. However, muffins can be so much more. According to my husband, muffins are meant to be sweet, but I tend to veer in the direction of a savoury muffin accompanied by a sweet cup of tea – perhaps mainly to prove to him that I am always right. He took some convincing, because he’s not a feta cheese fan, but these are so good: the cooked feta melts down slightly in the muffin, keeping its distinctive salty flavour. The dill adds such a fresh taste, and the crunch of the seeds gives an extra dimension to the texture. These can be eaten fresh out of the oven or cooled, sliced, smothered in cream cheese and topped with smoked salmon. And now when I say muffin, my husband answers, ‘Dill and feta, please!’ "

Nadiya’s Queen Cake...

Fancy a slice of Her Majesty’s cake by Nadiya Hussain? I know I do!! It looks amazing..

Nadiya says: "I didn’t ever think I was going to say these words all in one sentence: ‘I made the Queen’s 90th birthday cake!’ Being asked to do this was probably one of my proudest moments. However, when the realization struck, I was rather flummoxed. I mean, what kind of cake could I possibly make that the Queen would enjoy; what design, size, flavour, colour, type of cake should it be? After deliberating for days, I decided to opt for a classic drizzle cake, but flavoured with oranges rather than lemons, with a vibrant purple fondant and decorated with roses. I knew that my cake was never going to be as opulent or have as much grandeur as some of the Queen’s past birthday cakes, but I’m incredibly proud of it. Here is a smaller, simpler version for you to try at home – you can choose whether to go for a simple drizzle cake, or to decorate it with the fondant and the roses."
