INGREDIENTS

  • 7 g sachet fast action dried yeast
  • ¼ cup raw caster sugar
  • 280 ml warm milk
  • 60 g unsalted butter, melted
  • 1 extra-large egg, lightly beaten
  • 3 ½ cup strong bakers plain flour
  • 2 tspn mixed spice
  • 2 tspn ground cinnamon
  • 2 tspn ground ginger
  • 1/4 tspn salt
  • 260 g dried pear, chopped
  • 100 g chocolate chips
  • Flour paste for crosses
  • 1/2 cup plain flour
  • 2 tspn caster sugar
  • 2 tspn oil
  • 1/4 cup water
  • Glaze
  • 1/4 cup apricot jam, hot

METHOD

  1. Combine yeast, sugar and warm milk together in the mixing bowl of a stand mixer, stirring to combine. Cover and allow to stand in a warm place for 10 minutes or until mixture starts to froth. Add butter and egg, stirring to combine.
  2. Add flour, mixed spice, cinnamon, ginger and salt to the yeast mixture. Using an electric stand mixer with a dough hook, mix until dough comes together. Knead the dough for 5 – 10 minutes or until dough is smooth and elastic.
  3. Place dough in a lightly oiled bowl, cover with a damp tea towel or plastic wrap and leave to stand in a warm place for an hour or until doubled in size.
  4. Preheat oven to 200°C (180°C fan-forced) and lightly grease a 23cm square or 28cm round cake tin.
  5. Turn dough onto a clean floured surface, knocking the air out of it and knead for a further 5 minutes or until smooth, working in the pear and chocolate; making sure they are well distributed through the dough.
  6. Divide dough into 16 equal pieces and shape into balls. Place balls into prepared tin, cover and stand in warm place for 30 minutes or until balls have doubled in size.
  7. For the flour paste, combine flour, sugar, oil and water, stirring until smooth.  Place paste in a disposable piping bag or clean zip lock bag and snip the corner and pipe crosses on buns.
  8. Bake buns in preheated oven for 25 minutes or until the tops are golden. Remove from oven and turn buns out onto a wire rack. To double check they are cooked, the base should sound hollow when tapped. Brush tops of buns with hot apricot jam glaze and allow to cool on wire rack.

INGREDIENTS

  • 3 eggs, lightly whisked
  • 150 ml milk
  • 50 g caster sugar
  • 1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 40 g unsalted butter
  • 8 slices thick crusty sourdough bread
  • 300 g pot Honey & Vanilla Yoghurt
  • roasted rhubarb
  • 8 stems rhubarb
  • 2/3 cup caster sugar
  • 1/3 cup orange juice
  • 1 tbsp chopped glacee ginger

METHOD

  1. Preheat oven to 180°C (160°C fan-forced).
  2. To prepare the rhubarb cut it into 10cm lengths. Place in a shallow roasting pan.
  3. In a small saucepan combine sugar, orange juice & ginger together over a medium heat, stirring until sugar has dissolved.
  4. Pour mixture over the rhubarb, cover with foil & cook in preheated oven for 15 minutes. Remove foil & cook for a further 15 minutes or until rhubarb is tender, but still holding its shape.
  5. Remove from oven & set aside to cool to room temperature.
  6. For the French toast whisk the eggs & milk together in a bowl until well combined & on a separate plate combine sugar & cinnamon together for later.
  7. Heat a large non-stick frying pan over a medium heat & melt a little of the butter.
  8. Dip two slices of bread at a time into the egg mixture, place in pan & fry for 1–2 minutes on each side, until golden.
  9. Remove the French toast from the pan & dip on both sides in the cinnamon sugar. Repeat with the remaining slices of bread.
  10. Serve two slices of French toast topped with slow roasted rhubarb & a dollop of vanilla yoghurt per person.

  1. For an easy compote, trim & slice a bunch of rhubarb into 5cm pieces. Wash under cold water, place in a large mixing bowl with 1/3 cup caster sugar & 125g raspberries, tossing until evenly coated. Heat a non-stick frying pan over a medium heat & add rhubarb mixture, turning every 2–3 minutes to prevent sugar from burning. Cook until fruit becomes soft & sugar caramelises.
  2. The roasted rhubarb in this recipe can also be used to top custard tarts, a pavlova, rice pudding or folded through whipped cream with crushed meringue for a quick fruit fool.
  3. rhubarb crumble is so quick, simply cook a bunch of trimmed, chopped & washed rhubarb with 1/3 cup caster sugar for 5 minutes or until soft. For the crumble, rub 125g each of our, butter, sugar together with 1/4 cup each of oats & almonds & 1 teaspoon ground ginger, until mixture is well combined & looks like coarse breadcrumbs. Bake in 180°C oven for 30 minutes or until crumble is golden.

INGREDIENTS

  • 1 kg quinces
  • 750 ml water
  • 2 cups caster sugar
  • 250 ml lemon juice
  • peel of a lemon
  • 1 cinnamon stick
  • 2 star anise
  • 2 cardamom pods

METHOD

  1. Preheat oven to 150°C (130°C fan-forced).
  2. For the spiced quinces, peel, core & quarter the quinces. Tie the peelings & cores together in a piece of muslin.
  3. Place the remaining ingredients together in a large ovenproof pot over a low heat, stirring until the sugar dissolves.
  4. Increase heat to medium-high, bring to the boil & cook for 2 minutes.
  5. Submerge the quince pieces & the muslin bag in the spiced syrup, adding extra water if required to cover quinces.
  6. Place a dampened piece of baking paper directly over the top of the quinces, (called a cartouche) which helps slow down the evaporation of moisture.
  7. Cover with a lid & place pot in preheated oven for 4 hours or until quinces have turned a deep ruby colour. Remove from heat & allow to cool.
  8. Serve quinces on top of porridge, with Greek yoghurt & pistachios or add them to a frangipane tart for something special.

three ways with quinces:

  1. A delicious addition to a lamb tagine is adding cubes of fresh quince at the same time you add the lamb. It adds sweetness & texture to the final dish.
  2. For a simple quince paste, peel & core 4 quinces, cover with water in large saucepan, bring to the boil & cook for 45 minutes until very tender. Drain well, weigh cooked quince to determine the equal amount of sugar. Place quince in food processor & puree until smooth. Return to pan with sugar over low heat, stirring until sugar dissolves. Cook for 1 1/2 hours or until mixture has become a deep ruby colour. Pour into a lined 20cm x 30cm pan, smooth surface then place in 50°C oven for several hours or overnight to set.
  3. Quince paste makes a stunning glaze for meats, especially a baked Christmas ham. Place 125g chopped quince paste in a small saucepan with 1/4 cup each lemon juice & water over a low heat, stirring until paste dissolves. Brush or pour glaze over meat towards the end of cooking.
