    Good flavour and texture.Great for a quick cook with an 8 year old who is not very confident in the kitchen. We add finely grated orange or mandarin zest. Really best eaten the day made.

    Love this sauce as it is so versatile and freezes well. I add 1/2 teaspoon of hot smoked paprika, 1/2 teaspoon smoked paprika (yes, both), use 1/2 teaspoon chilli flakes if I can't access fresh ones, and sometimes roast 2 of the garlic cloves whole and squeeze them in befofe blending.

    Am about to make this cake, which sounds great, but the recipe does not state exactly how the cake is to be cooled. Is it cooled in the tin? Is it rested in the tin for 10 minutes then turned out onto a wire rack to cool? Is it immediately turned out onto a wire rack to cool? These are not minor questions to someone who bakes a wide range of cakes, all of which are specific in the coolng methods required. Cakes are an exact science married to art - everything matters. May I suggest a truly wonderful Australian book, Mix and Bake, by Belinda Jeffery? The recipes are clear, easy to follow and SO RELIABLE. She also gives so much useful and interesting advice on every aspect of baking without making you feel like an idiot. Golden caster sugar is not easy to locate in Australia.
