This satisfies my banana cream pie craving, but in smaller portions...not the whole pie! It is based on Dejah's recipe #37006.
Can also be gluten free if you use gluten free cookies/biscuits. I like to use gingernut because they are full of toasted coconut. The quantity is only a guide; use as many bananas, crumbs and cream as you like.
From Cooking Light website. Something different to make with over-ripe bananas (this is the key to a strong banana flavour--the more spotted the banana the tastier.) The biscotti are very small "baby-finger" sized--probably how they earned a low calorie rating!
From "The Muffin Bible" published by Penguin Books.. The custard powder could be substituted for some extra vanilla. When I make these with rhubard or pear, I add 1 tsp ground cardamom to the dry ingredients.
This is a variation on Bill Granger's white chocolate mousse. It is so easy and looks very impressive. This is my go-to chocolate mousse. I have used dark chocolate and milk chocolate, and it has turned out beautifully.
If you don't have blackberries, don't worry. Most berries or any tart-ish fruit pair quite well with this. The original recipe used fresh passionfruit.
Put these on wooden squewers and BBQ for great party appetizers or serve with rice as a main meal. Dressing and prawns can be made a day ahead, but keep seperate. Toss prawns in the dressing just before cooking. Taken from Australian Women's Weekly Dec 2006 magazine.
From my mother-in-law. If you don't have coconut milk you can use 2/3 cup hot water and 3 Tbsp coconut milk powder. You can also use fresh mango instead of canned.(Add it just before serving, as it is very delicate.)
From the "Reader's Digest Microwave Cookbook". We only had a microwave when we got married, so this cookbook was used daily! I am now converted to making rice puddings in the microwave, or any other dish that sticks and burns easliy. All that aside, this is the tastiest rice pudding recipe.
'Zuppa del Venerdi Santo'
This is what she says about this recipe:
"Good Friday is not a public holiday in Italy and even 20 years ago I remember being really surprised to see people in restaurants tucking into their steaks and chicken. However in the past when Friday was still a "lean" day for the Church, this was traditional Good Friday fare for the Romans. It is much simpler than most fish soups and I happily recommend it for any day of the year."
Another fantastic authentic Italian recipe from Diane Seed's newsletter. http://www.italiangourmet.com/aboutdiane.php
From Donna Hay's "The Instant Cook". Very easy but looks like a cafe dessert! You can also make it with mangoes and replace the ground almonds with desiccated coconut. Or apricots and ground hazelnuts. I use my silicon large 6-muffins moulds, and they come out easy.
From Australian Women's Weekly. A prize recipe by Margaret Flood of Brunswick, Victoria.
Can be made up to a week ahead. Store in an airtight container to prevent them losing their crispiness. They are very sweet so have them with a cup of coffee!
