Weekly Bake: FOOOOOD FIIIIIIIGGGHHHT!

For this week’s Weekly Bake, we’re going a little bit silly, a little bit traditional and a little bit healthy…

Custard Tart with a hint of nutmeg

First on the list, one of my favourites from my days at St Trinian’s, The Custard Tart (or Pie, in the US) – made with a real vanilla egg custard, flavoured with a hint of nutmeg. Dating as far back as the coronation of Henry IV in 1399, this is a much underrated stalwart of any British bakery counter, not to mention slapstick comedy.  Normally eaten either as a dessert or with afternoon tea, and sometimes used as a missile – just ask Rupert Murdoch.

The totally delicious and very versatile, Custard Tart: €12 for 6 mini tarts

Scones, clotted cream and strawberry jam

For the more sensible, second on the list, scones and clotted cream.

Scones (plain, wholemeal or fruit): 12€ for 12

Clotted Cream: €5 per pot

And, for the health conscious: Red Berry Yoghurt Ice-cream with a little hint of vanilla to give it a lovely creamy undertone (No eggs, no gluten).

The only way you can really get away with eating ice-cream for breakfast!
