I was trying to work out how to make a delicious treat for the kids that was a little healthier than other treats. I had a can of pie apple, some almonds and ingredients that I have always got in the pantry - and this is what I came up with. I love trifle but I don't like the soggy texture so in my trifle recipe I haven't included jelly. It quickly disappeared before I could get a decent photo of it.
My father has mastered this recipe. He is known to be the best at making paella and was asked by the Spanish Association in his home town to make this dish for a large fundraising occasion. He also makes this dish with chicken or both chicken and pork and uses a special paella pan to cook it over an open fire so that it gets that burnt smokey flavour. If you don't like seafood just don't add them. You can really use any meat you like. Anyway here it is.
At the time of submitting this recipe I have experienced a very cold and windy winter and this meal was delicious and warmed us up. I have made it into a low-fat version for those of us that don't want to pile on the kilos through winter. I usually buy chicken breast fillets and mince them myself, that way I know there is little fat in it. Chicken mince bought from the supermarket may have very high levels of fat. To make a lower GI for those with diabetes just reduce the amount of white potatoes and replace with sweet potato. Serve with a salad.
This recipe is usually very high in fat and made with egg yolk and cream. This very tasty version was found in a low-fat cook book and I have never looked back. It is just as good as the real thing. Trust me!
I have made this cake a couple of times now, and everytime I make it, it just tastes better and better. It is so moist and will stay that way if covered with plastic wrap and kept out of the fridge. For all you banana cake lovers, this is the one to try.
