Baking with Flora Buttery

Lets talk margarine and spreads – are you in the butter camp or do you swear by a spread or margarine?

Valentines Parfait


jan projects 325

 You know what everyone loves?  Parfait!  Seeing as hidden hearts are all over the place at the moment I thought I’d hide them in this lovely dessert too.

(And yes, I know its not baking but it is larking around in the kitchen so that’s good enough for me!)

Raspberry Caramel

Raspberry Caramel
- think of the endless possibilities – drizzled over icecream, profiteroles, Jammy Dodgers , eaten from the spoon (did I really just say that?!) This raspberry caramel is completely delicious!

Ingredients:

300g caster sugar

75ml water

120g raspberries

approx 75ml double cream

100g butter

Start off with the raspberries – Fresh ones I’ve found will give you more puree and the reddest colour caramel but frozen ones aren’t bad either if that’s all you have.
