Two Christmas recipes you simply have to try!


Posted 23rd Dec 2016

You're in for a treat, Homestylers! We've chosen two of our favourite recipes from two of our favourite chefs, Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall and Frances Quinn! Giving you the perfect main-course for a Christmas party or the opportunity to use up those post-Christmas leftovers and a sumptous dessert, suitable for either the perfect post-dinner treat or as a treat for any occasion, you'll want to get cooking straight away!

This is a great pairing of inevitable Christmas leftovers: leftover roasted salted peanuts – or cashews – made into a tangy satay sauce to serve with leftover roast turkey or chicken.

Christmas pudding cupcakes

These give you both Christmas cake and Christmas pudding in one perfect portion. The cakes are topped with a decadent white chocolate ganache to represent custard. Cranberries appear both inside the cakes and on top as ‘holly berries’, and fresh holly tips finish them off with traditional rustic charm. You can also make mini Christmas puddings by scaling the mixture down and baking it in 24 mini-muffin cases.
