Roast Stuffed Pumpkin With Gingery Tomato Sauce

There is something so magnificent about a whole pumpkin stuffed with jewelled rice, that it doesn’t really need too many side dishes to detract: its starchy interior means you can forgo potatoes or the orzotto; and the vibrant sauce precludes the need for a pile-up of condiments. Obviously all pumpkins come in different sizes, and if yours is radically smaller (unlikely, I’d think, to be much bigger and still edible), here is an easy way to work out how much rice you need to stuff it: once…

Chestnut Chocolate Pots

I'm almost embarrassed by how easy these are. It's true that you do need a processor, though you could just chop well and whisk using a lot of elbow grease. As an experiment, I also tried the chestnut pots as chestnut chocolate mousses: the mousses were more work and not as good; this - lazy - way provides a much more meltingly luscious texture.

Christmas Chocolate Cookies

I love these dark, fat patties of chocolate shortbread exuberantly topped with festive sprinkles. There’s something so cheering about the sight of them, but they have more in their favour than looks: they are a doddle to make, and meltingly gorgeous to eat.

Edible Christmas Tree Decorations from Nigella Lawson. These peppery, gingerbready edible decorations are great to make with the kids to mark the start of the festive period.

Edible Christmas Tree Decorations

I couldn’t have Christmas without these, or at least, not happily. Rituals are essential to give us meaning, a sense of ceremony, and making these peppery, gingerbready edible decorations is how I have always marked with my children that Christmas has begun. If you can’t find Instant Royal Icing, you can make your own by mixing 2 tablespoons of egg white powder (meringue powder in the States) with 500g (2½ cups) of icing sugar (confectioners’ sugar) and 3 tablespoons plus 2 teaspoons of warm…

Yule Log

I know the recipe looks finicky, and I can’t promise it’s a doddle, but it works easily and you will soon find you are rolling chocolate logs without a care. In fact, if you have a lot of people coming round, and you can find a serving dish or board long enough, it might be worth making 2 cakes and sitting them end to end, to look like a really long log. But even if you’re making just one log, I advise at least a freestanding mixer or a hand-held electric whisk: I wouldn’t contemplate this…

Love how she recognizes the pagan and christian beliefs surrounding Christmas Pudding) Christmas Cooking, Christmas Desserts, Christmas Treats, Christmas Lunch, Christmas Cakes, Pudding Recipes, Holiday Recipes, Christmas Recipes, Dinner Recipes

Ultimate Christmas Pudding

I don’t deny it: there is something unattractively boastful about calling one’s own recipe “ultimate”. But having soaked my dried fruit for this pudding in Pedro Ximénez – the sweet, dark, sticky sherry that has a hint of liquorice, fig and treacle about it – I know there is no turning back. It’s not even as if it’s an extravagance: the rum or brandy I’ve used up till now are more expensive and do the trick less well. This is sensational - it is the Queen of Christmas puddings. It has to be…

Christmas Rocky Road

It’s not that I felt my usual Rocky Road Crunch Bars needed any improvement (though fiddling with recipes is one of life’s pleasures) but I thought they would benefit from some seasonal adjustment. So, out go the Rich Tea biscuits and in come amaretti and – in the seasonal spirit – I’ve crammed in some Brazil nuts and glacé cherries (as red as Rudolph’s nose), along with snowy mini marshmallows. The fresh snowfall of icing sugar on top might seem seasonal enough, but not for me. So I add…

Spruced-Up Vanilla Cake

This is a sleight of hand, or a trick of equipment rather than an act of brilliance. True, the cake does look incredibly complicated and seasonally impressive as it comes to the table, but that is all down to the shape of the tin. It’s an expense to get a tin that can’t be used all year round, but it really is a beautifully Christmassy creation, and a doddle to make. For the “spruced up” of the cake refers to the Holiday Fir tin I bake it in; at other times of the year, I call this Eggy…

Star-Topped Mince Pies

This is the way I make my mince pies, and there is no changing me or them: they are small, to be popped straight into the mouth in one go; the pastry is plain, the better to contrast with the rich, fruited filling; and they have not full casings but little stars as lids, which makes them look beautiful and taste flutteringly light. By all means use good shop-bought mincemeat if you want, but I'm hoping you might give my new Cranberry-Studded Mincemeat a go: it tastes both rich and boozy and…

Christmas-Spiced Chocolate Cake

I love a fallen chocolate cake, and have found most everyone else does too. The cakes are so called because they are compact and flourless and, when cooling out of the oven, their rich centres drop and dip a little. It is into this dip, not so dramatic as to be called a crater, that you drop or scatter the sticky nut topping. I serve this with Cointreau Cream, made simply by whisking 250ml double cream until softly whipped, whisking in about 45ml of Cointreau (or Triple sec or Grand Marnier…

Red Pepper and Chilli Jam from Nigella Lawson Going to give this red pepper and chilli jam recipe from Nigella a go today. I've made chutney many times, but this will be a first. Three jars are destined to be gifts so I hope they go down well! Nigella Lawson, Chutneys, Chilli Jam, Sweet Chilli, Bacon Sandwich, Pickle Jars, Jam And Jelly, Canning Recipes, Food Gifts

Chilli Jam

Although I call this chilli jam, I don't mean by this that it's the sort of thing you'd spread on your toast at breakfast (though smeared inside a bacon sandwich, it could be a real help one hungover morning) but rather a chilli jelly - chelly? - that glows a fiery, flecked red and is fabulous with cold meats or a cheese plate. And just a small pot of it makes a gorgeous present. "Jam sugar" is a sugar that has pectin added to it and is very good for setting jams and jellies which are low in…
