Chocolate mousse

Few recipes can be as delicious yet so easy to make. If making this with the kids, remember they’ll need supervision while heating the chocolate.

Mother and kids baking.

Hot cross custard roll

Take two British classics custard and hot cross buns and you can’t go wrong, unless you’re on a diet!

Please note that whilst this recipe is suitable for baking with your kids, they must be supervised during the steps involving heating the of the custard, and it is wise to supervise the later stages as well as this is potentially very messy!

Whilst this is a delicious dessert, it is very high in calories, fat, and sugars, so it should be eaten as an occasional treat only.

Egg in a hole.

Egg in the Hole (‘V Eggs’)

Whether there is enough to this to consider it a recipe at all is debatable, but it is a really nice snack for when time is short! In the US they call it ‘toad in the hole’ (they don’t have the real thing). In our house, we call them V eggs, because the first time we saw it was in the film ‘V for Vendetta’.
