I was recently watching the Hairy bakers bakation, and as always, I want to cook what they are cooking. They were in Slovakia and made a bread and butter pudding with fruit on the top- a traditional dish over there. I love bread and butter pudding and had a big craving after watching this so thought I would give it a go.
Met up for a lunch date with a dear friend of mine near Warren Street and although I’ve eaten around there many times before I have never taken much notice of this gorgeous little cafe.
Situated in the leafy neighbourhood of Hornsey on a Sunday morning Alexandra Palace places host to a farmers market. Open from 10am to 3pm, full of tasty delights for foodies and non foodies alike. Whether you are looking for a nice cut of Welsh lamb or just out for a tasty snack, there is plenty to see.
I often use the ready-made pastry if I’m trying to make a pie quickly, but home-made pastry is by far more yummy.
If you want to make your own pastry follow this recipe, make sure you have cold hands (something I never have so have to have about a hundred windows open while I’m cooking) and put on an apron.
These quantities are perfect for pie making, so just reduce or increase the amounts depending on what you are baking. If you want the pastry to be more buttery, just add a little more butter.
