Sesame Eggplant dip
Still using up gifted produce and thinking about what to make with beetroot, I toyed with making a Chocolate Beetroot cake but decided to make Beet Ice Cream with Mascarpone, Orange Zest and Poppyseeds from my Jeni's Splendid Ice Creams at Home book (the recipe here). What can I say but YUM, the beetroot gave the ice cream a sort of a jammy taste. I used one really large beetroot and roasted it while I was cooking something else, it took ages to roast but was well worth it.
Cinnamon Doughnuts - I nearly forgot to take a photo of these, hence the bite out of it. This was a recipe clipped from the paper which I have been meaning to try out. I halved the recipe, it was quite easy to make, not having a mixer meant I didn't bother with the beating on low speed for four minutes part, I just made sure my butter was very soft and beat it with a wooden spoon for a minute or so. I made a couple of my doughnuts too thick and they were a bit doughy (but still quite edible), these will make another reappearance but as a sometimes food.
