    British Toffee Apples Recipe with Smart Shanghai

    For Halloween, we’re making toffee apples (without razor blades) with James Stockdale of The British Kitchen. He shows us how to make toffee and the best way to get it on an apple.

    This is quite different from the American “carmel apple”, which involves butter and cream. Some folks in our office said James’ version actually tastes a bit like the Chinese tanghulu.

    Treacle tart Recipe

    If you’ve ever been in London, you might have been lucky enough to hear someone say a phrase that never fails to make me grin, ‘hello treacle’.

    At the slightest whisper of a rice pudding recipe, my mind is immediately whisked back to a time when I was much shorter than I am today. I’m standing looking up, with a tray clasped in my hands.

    Irish Wheaten Bread Recipe

    Some things in life smell pretty awesome. If I was pressed to provide my personal highlights, they would include – in no particular order – apple crumble, freshly-earthed carrots, sharpie pens and, of course, oven-fresh wheaten bread. Not all at once though, thanks. The last is a wholesome, simple loaf and a real staple where I grew up in Northern Ireland.

    Millionaires Shortbread Recipe

    As the name would suggest, millionaire’s shortbread is indeed one excessively rich treat. Buttery melt-in-your-mouth shortbread is already a pretty good deal any day of the week, but to go a step further and add layers of rich chewy caramel and bitter dark chocolate really elevates it from a humble pauper to royal prince.
