A classic that takes simple ingredients to produce the ultimate comfort food. Just make sure you use a heavy bottom pot so there’s no scorching. The creamed coconut comes in a can and can be found in Asian or Indian markets or most supermarkets. It adds a wonderful creamy taste that is not too coconut-y but mostly offers a velvety texture. The trick to this is a slow simmer but the reward is indescribable.

Do they eat this in Bavaria?

The hue of this filling is like a Californian sunset. The taste is…..heavenly. A totally awesome new variety of hamantashen pastry. Dried mango and strawberries are available from Costco to bulk food stores.

This is a lovely quick summer dessert (discounting it does take a sweet yeast dough that has only one rise) that features a pastry soft-crisp base that’s anointed with a cheesecake-like topping and then finished with fresh strawberries. It is really a galette or tart but calling it Strawberry Pizza is sure to get it the notice it deserves. You could glaze this but a dusting of confectioners’ sugar is really all that’s needed. The confectioners’ sugar makes the strawberry juices leach out and gently soak into the pastry. This goes fast; refrigerate between servings. I would expect to find this served on the terrace of a French restaurant. It’s sublime in every respect.

This yeasted sweet coffeecake bread,  is as tender as a buttery brioche and reminiscent of a feather-textured Italian panettone, except with a totally new spin. It is a mildly sweet dough that encases chunks of banana, brown sugar, and (optionally), butterscotch or chocolate chips. The dough featured finely ground, toasted walnuts. Definitely not your average banana bread. Just sweet enough and just buttery enough to deliver a lovely bouquet of taste and texture. . If you hankering for a traditional baking powder/baking soda Banana Bread, quick bread style, check our recipe index Search. If you like this concept but are not a banana fan, omit the butterscotch and chocolate chips, and use 2 cups blueberries instead. Everyone who tested this, and shared it with others said:
Not a crumb left. Disappeared in seconds. Fabulous (raves from Connecticut to Florida and Indiana)

Use an Italian style pizzelle waffle iron for an authentic look

Hamantashen are the traditional Purim treat that is a cookie or pastry with a hidden inner filling of fruit. But sweet cheese kreplach are another sort of Purim pastry that is just as welcome.

 A new spin on my legendary potato pancakes New Way Famous Potato Latkes. Sweet potatoes add vitamins and colour; the combination of gold and orange is simply beautiful.

Hugepastry eclairs, stuffed with silky pastry cream and generously smeared with Swiss chocolate glaze make these unbeatable. Alternatively, fill these with softened vanilla ice-cream, top with the chocolate and freeze until required. Then slather on additional hot fudge sauce.
