Lemon Curd Rolls

I love a good sticky bun, and while Cinnamon Rolls feature regularly in our home, I try to change things up now and then, depending on my mood and depending on the season. Whilst I could eat a Cinnamon Roll at any time of the year, I lean towards more bright and tangy flavours when the weather is warm. Enter my Lemon Curd Rolls!

Ice-Cream Machine

Every spring, I toy with the idea of buying an ice-cream machine.

Homemade Mayonnaise

One recipe which is always handy to have up your sleeve is a Homemade Mayonnaise. While it is easy to buy a jar or tube of ready-made mayonnaise, there are times when it is best to have the real thing on hand.

For example, if a mayonnaise serves as a basis of a sauce or dressing for your dish – such as with my Scotch Eggs – making a mayonnaise from scratch will make the whole dish even more special.

Why This Recipe Works

  • Make a Homemade Mayonnaise with just a few ingredients from your fridge and pantry.
  • Adjust the mayonnaise to your liking, whether you like it tangy, salty or even with a touch of sweetness.
  • Use a food processor or an electric whisk for a foolproof mayonnaise.
  • Add other flavourings to your mayonnaise, such as fresh herbs.
