rainbow cake Taste the rainbow 18 slices

3 hours

EQUIPMENT oven electric whisk

INGREDIENTS 250 grams butter, softened, plus a little extra for greasing 450 grams plain flour 300 grams golden caster sugar 6

medium eggs

2

tsp baking powder pinch of salt

3

tsp vanilla extract edible food colouring

750 grams tubs cream cheese or mascarpone 350 grams icing sugar

really hard

HOW TO

1 Heat oven to 180C/160C fan/gas 4. Grease 2 x 20cm round sandwich tins and line the bases with baking parchment. Tip all the sponge ingredients, apart from the food colouring, into a mixing bowl, then beat with an electric whisk until smooth.

2 Working quickly, weigh the mixture into another bowl to work out

the total weight, then weigh exactly half the mixture back into the mixing bowl. Pick 2 of your colours and stir a little into each mix. Keep going until you are happy with the colour – the colour of the batter now will be very similar to the finished cake, so be brave! Scrape the different batters into the tins, trying to spread and smooth as much as possible. Bake on the same oven shelf for 12 mins until a skewer poked into the middle comes out clean.

3 Gently turn the cakes out onto a wire rack to cool. Wash the tins and bowls thoroughly, and start again from step 1 – this time using another 2 colours. Leave them all to cool.

4 To make the icing, very briefly beat the vanilla and cream cheese

or mascarpone with an electric whisk until smooth. Sift in the icing sugar and gently fold in with a spatula. Be careful – the more you work it, the runnier it will get, increasing the chance of splitting.

5 Smear a little icing on your cake stand or plate – just a splodge to

stick the first sponge. Start with the red, then spread with some icing right to the very edge. Repeat, sandwiching on top the orange, yellow, green, blue and finally purple sponges. Spread the remaining icing thickly all over the sides and top of the cake.

peanut butter swirl brownies

Its marblelous 24 brownies

3:20 hours

EQUIPMENT oven microwave mixer

INGREDIENTS 1

cup unsalted butter

113 grams semi-sweet chocolate bar 2

cups granulated sugar

3

large eggs

2

teaspoons pure vanilla extract

1

cup (95g) cocoa powder

1

cup (125g) flour

1

teaspoon salt

1 1/2 cups chopped peanut butter cups 1

cup creamy peanut butter

hard

HOW TO

1 Preheat the oven to 350°F (177°C) and grease a 9x13 inch pan or line with aluminum foil or parchment paper. Set aside.

2 Brownie batter: In a microwave-safe bowl, combine 3/4 cup butter

and chopped chocolate. Melt in 30 second increments, whisking after each, until completely smooth. Whisk in the granulated sugar until completely combined, then whisk in the eggs and 1 teaspoon vanilla. The batter will be light brown and a little dull looking.

3 Add the cocoa powder, flour, and salt. Fold it all together with a

rubber spatula or wooden spoon. Batter will be very thick. Stir in chopped peanut butter cups, reserving a small handful to sprinkle on top. Set aside.

4 Peanut butter swirl: Melt the remaining butter. Beat the melted

butter, remaining 1 teaspoon of vanilla, the peanut butter, and confectioners’ sugar until smooth. Drop big spoonfuls of most of the chocolate batter randomly into the prepared pan. Top with random spoonfuls of all of the peanut butter batter. Drop random spoonfuls of remaining chocolate batter over any bare spots or heavy peanut butter spots. Using a knife, swirl the batters together.

5 Bake for 30 minutes, then test the brownies with a toothpick.

Insert it into the center of the pan. If it comes out with wet batter, the brownies are not done. If there are only a few moist crumbs, the brownies are done.

6 Remove from the oven and place on a wire rack to cool completely before cutting into squares.

foods ready to go The occasional candy craving does not have to completely derail your turbulent life. Check out the following five alternatives to candy that you can consume while running to work. These options will keep your cravings at bay and your work schedule in check.

Granola mix A granola mix, filled with dried fruits like raisins and other healthy treats of your choice can really fill the snack craving. As long as it’s measured out carefully, this snack is ideal for any dieter. Dried fruits by themselves can also be a great alternative to candy. Packs of raisins are portable and great to eat on the run, but you’ll want to choose organic when it comes to raisins in order to make the most healthy choice.

f ru i t s Grab a delicious serving of fruit. Watermelon, cantaloupe and oranges will really satisfy your sweet tooth, and they’ll leave you with a full belly and a clear conscience. They’re good for your health, low in fat, and a perfect place to start when you want to make healthier choices for your body and overall wellness. Try and experiment with fruits that aren’t a normal part of your diet. Even fruits that are higher in sugar and fat are better for you than most kinds of candy.

Pretzels Pretzels in and of themselves aren’t sweet. However, there are carob-covered pretzels and other flavored pretzels that offer much more nutritional advantages and far less fat than candy. They’re great to bring along when you go see a movie or on any other outing. Instead of being tempted by the high-calorie and expensive snacks at a concession stand, bring out a bag of pretzels and a bottle of water. You’ll be able to munch throughout the movie (or the game, or the party) on a snack that’s every bit as delicious as candy.

1 hour

EQUIPMENT oven

INGREDIENTS 1

tbsp yeast

medium

HOW TO

1 Mix the yeast with half a teaspoon of the sugar and two tablespoons of the warm milk. Place in a warm place to rest for 15 minutes, or until frothy.

2 Sift the flour and salt into a large bowl. Stir in one tablespoon of the sugar.

4

tbsp caster sugar

150 ml milk, warmed 225 grams plain flour, plus extra for dusting 1/4

tsp salt

really hard

How to

1 Place the berries into a food processor, pulse for a few seconds and sift through fine mesh strainer.

2 Place the egg whites into your mixer bowl and add the sugar. Turn your mixer on high and whisk until stiff peaks form.

3 Sift into a large bowl the flour, confectioner’s sugar and fruit pow-

der. Gradually fold in the flour into the egg whites. Mixture needs to have a specific consistency. Not too thick or too thin, should fall off of your spatula in a ribbon.

4 Line 2 baking sheets with parchment paper and preheated your oven to 300F. Watch your cookies when they’re in the oven and open the door if you think you see any color on them.

5 Transfer batter into a pastry bag tipped with a round tip. If you

have the time, you can draw circles on the back of the parchment paper to use as guides. Otherwise, just freehand it.

6 Pipe onto your parchment paper. Tap pan multiple times to release any air bubbles. Then, let pan stand for 1 HOUR (very important, do not skip this step!) to form a thin film over the top.

7 Bake your cookies for 15 minutes. Once you take them out, let

them stand for a few minutes before removing them. Let them cool completely before filling.

8 For filling: put the ingredients in the mixer until it reaches the right consistency. Pipe onto one cookie, top with another.

1/4

cup chocolate chips, malted extra Oreo cookies to decorate

really hard

How to

1 Place 20 Oreo cookies into a food processor and pulse the cookies

into fine crumbs. Pour in the melted butter and pulse again to coat the cookie crumbs. Press the crumbs into the bottom of a 9-inch spring form pan, creating a firm and even crust; set aside.

2 In a large bowl, cream together the cream cheese and sugar until

light and fluffy. Add the salt, vanilla and sweetened condensed milk. Mix again until creamy. In a separate bowl, whisk the chilled heavy cream on high speed until stiff peaks form. Add the cream cheese mixture and whisk again for about 2 minutes, until stiff peaks form again. Sift into a large bowl the flour, confectioner’s sugar and fruit powder. Gradually fold in the flour into the egg whites. Mixture should fall off of your spatula in a ribbon.

S'mores Dip

When you miss that camping feeling 1 pan

1 hour

Equipments skillet oven

Ingredients 1/2

tablespoon butter

1 1/2 cups chocolate chips 15

jumbo marshmallows Graham craker squares

easy peasy

How to

1 Adjust rack to center position of oven and place 8-inch cast iron skillet on rack. Preheat oven to 450°F with skillet inside.

2 Once oven is preheated, use a pot holder to remove hot skillet

from the oven. Place pat of butter in the skillet and use a pot holder to hold the handle and swirl the skillet so that the melted butter coats the bottom and sides.

3 Pour chocolate chips in an even layer into the bottom of the

skillet. Taking care not to burn fingers on the sides of the skillet, arrange marshmallow halves over the surface of the chocolate chips, covering the chocolate completely.

4 Bake for 5 to 7 minutes or until marshmallows are toasted to your

preference (watch closely!). Use an oven mitt to remove the skillet from the oven and allow to rest for 5 minutes. Serve immediately with graham cracker squares or sticks...but be careful, because the dip (and the skillet) will be very hot!

- CHEF’S TIP You can also do a chill version for when you’re home alone. In that case, put the chocolate and the marshmellow directly on the cracker and microwave for 15-20 seconds.

apple tart How do you like them apples 8 slices

2:20 hours

EQUIPMENT oven food processor

INGREDIENTS 2 cups all-purpose flour 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt 12 tablespoons (1 1/2 sticks) cold unsalted butter, diced 1/2 cup ice water 4 apples 1/2 cup sugar 5 tablespoons (1/2 stick) cold unsalted butter, small diced cup apricot jelly or warm 1/2 sieved apricot jam tablespoons Calvados, rum, 2 or water

really hard

HOW TO

1 For the pastry, place the flour, salt, and 1 tablespoon of sugar in

the bowl of a food processor fitted with the steel blade. Pulse for a few seconds to combine. Add the butter and pulse, until the butter is in small bits the size of peas. With the motor running, pour the ice water down the feed tube and pulse just until the dough starts to come together. Dump onto a floured board and knead quickly into a ball. Wrap in plastic and refrigerate for at least 1 hour.

2 Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F (204 C). Line a sheet pan with parchment paper.

3 Roll the dough slightly larger than 10 by 14-inches. Using a ruler

and a small knife, trim the edges. Place the dough on the prepared sheet pan and refrigerate while you prepare the apples.

4 Peel the apples and cut them in half through the stem. Remove

the stems and cores with a sharp knife and a melon baller. Slice the apples crosswise in 1/4-inch thick slices. Place overlapping slices of apples down the middle of the tart and continue making rows until the pastry is covered with apple slices. Sprinkle with the full 1/2 cup of sugar and dot with the butter.

5 Bake for 45 minutes to 1 hour, until the pastry is browned and the edges of the apples start to brown. Rotate the pan once during cooking. If the pastry puffs up in one area, cut a little slit with a knife to let the air out. When the tart's done, heat the apricot jelly together with the Calvados and brush the apples and the pastry completely with the jelly mixture. Loosen the tart with a metal spatula so it doesn't stick to the paper. Allow to cool and serve warm or at room temperature.

lets talk

sugar,

white sugar can't dance When you think about sugar, the first thing that probably comes to mind is sweetness. Sugar can add flavor, texture, and decoration, but as we all know, it is one of the first things to cut out when you're on a diet, so we will provide some healthier substitutes to the common white sugar.

Stevia Stevia is a natural substitute for sugar, it's sugar-free and non-caloric, made from the leaves of the stevia plant. If you’re comparing caloric and non-caloric sweeteners, stevia comes out on top. It doesn’t raise blood sugar and it’s natural and beneficial in reasonable amounts. It’s bio-active, so it could have some anti-inflammatory compounds and can also help you cut calories, but there’s a minor aftertaste that can take getting used to and overusing it could cause you to develop more of a taste for sweets.

honey Honey’s calling card is that it has anti-microbial and anti-bacterial properties, which is why it can also be used as a cough suppressant or sore throat soother. Manuka and other high-grade honeys often contain more beneficial properties—and overall honey is more of an actual food than sugar, but It’s high in calories and carbs.

c o c o n u t s u ga r This one gets positive marks. It’s made from the sap of coconut trees and is less processed because the sap is extracted and then placed in heat to dry, leaving it with a more natural brownish color like raw sugar. It can also contain trace amounts of minerals like magnesium, potassium, and inulin, a prebiotic fiber. The problem is It’s still a high-calorie sweetener and causes advanced glycation end-products (AGEs), which gradually lead to a break down in your collagen.


Ice Cream Sandwich You’ll cream to be in this sandwich 10 portions

30 minutes

Equipments container pan

Ingredients 1

plump vanilla pod

300 ml full-fat milk 300 ml double cream 100 grams golden caster sugar 4

egg yolks Chocolate chip cookies (see recipe on page 12!) Extra chocolate chips

medium

How to

1 Place a container in the freezer. Split the vanilla pod lengthways,

scrape the seeds out with the point of a knife and tip into a pan with the milk, cream and pod. Bring to the boil, then remove heat and leave to infuse for at least 20 mins. For the best flavour, this can be done a few hours beforehand and left to go cold.

2 In a large bowl, whisk the sugar and egg yolks together for a few

mins until they turn pale and fluffy. Put the vanilla cream back on the heat until it’s just about to boil, then carefully sieve the liquid onto the yolks, beating with the whisk until completely mixed.

3 At this point, get a large bowl of iced water and sit a smaller bowl

in it. Pour the custard back into the pan and cook on the lowest heat, stirring slowly and continuously, making sure the spoon touches the bottom of the pan, for about 10 mins until thickened. Strain the custard into the bowl sitting in the iced water and leave to cool, then churn until scoopable. Transfer to the container and freeze. Wait 8 hours.

4 Take one cookie and place a scoop of ice cream (about 1/4 cup)

on the flat side of the cookie. Top with flat side of second cookie to make a sandwich.

5 Place mini chocolate chips in a bowl or on plate. Roll sides of

the sandwich in the chips. Serve immediately or wrap tightly in plastic wrap and freeze.

5 To fill the profiteroles, insert the small piping tip into the top of

each cream puff and pipe it full of cream. As you pipe the filling, you should feel the cream puffs expand slightly. Once all the cream puffs are filled, place them into the refrigerator to chill for 30 to 60 minutes.

6 To garnish the top with chocolate, place the dark chocolate chips

into a medium bowl and heat until completely smooth (in microwave or over double-boiler). Dip the top of each cream puff into the melted chocolate, then set onto a wire rack to set. To garnish the top, add the diced hazelnuts before the chocolate is set.

each roll. Return to oven and bake until golden brown on top. Meanwhile, prepare frosting. Whisk together cream cheese, butter (56g), vanilla. 2 tablespoons half-and-half and salt in small bowl. Add confectioner’s sugar. Adjust frosting consistency by adding milk; add several more tablespoons for a thinner icing.

4 Spread frosting over warm buns and let the rolls cool slightly

before serving. Alternatively, place frosting into disposable pastry bag/ziplock bag, and pipe individually onto each roll.

5 Keep buns covered and refrigerated when not serving. Best when reheated in oven.

11/2 cups confectioner’s sugar
