Strawberry toast recipe

Marinated Strawberries & Almond Butter Sourdough

 

 

This is one of our absolute favourites from our new cookbook and is on the menu at our pop-up Toast Bar in the Selfridges Foodhall.   The savoury edge from the almond butter, sweet honey, salty sourdough and tart lemon makes this a real crowd-pleaser. Plus saying that you marinated your strawberries makes it sound rather fancy, so you’ll get lots of praise from friends if you’re generous enough make it for them. It’s a win-win situation.

Festive Cheesecake_V1

 

 

And believe it or not, it’s really rather simple to make..

 

To make this cracker of a cheesecake you will need:

 

For the base:

 

300g Digestive biscuits

100g Melted butter

Pinch of salt

 

For the filling:

 

500g Cream cheese

50g Golden caster sugar

1 tbsp. Cornflour

3 Free range eggs

200g Greek yoghurt

75g Runny honey

100g of Pip & Nut Honey Cinnamon Cashew butter

200g Sultanas (soaked in boiling water and drained)

Seeds from 1 vanilla pod

 

Serves: 12 hungry squirrels

 

1) Preheat the oven to 160C

 

2) In a bowl or blender, finely crush the digestives and mix together with the melted better and pinch of salt. Transfer this mixture in to a 30cm round spring form cake tin and pack down evenly over the base. Place in the fridge for 20 minutes or so to set.

 

3) In a large bowl, beat together the cream cheese, sugar, cornflour and vanilla seeds. Add the eggs and yoghurt and then incorporate the cashew nut butter, honey and drained sultanas.

 

4) Pour the mixture into the cake tin and spread evenly.

 

5) Wrap the tin with foil and then place in the middle of a large roasting try. Pour hot water around the tin until it reaches half way up the sides of the cake tin, and then place in the oven to cook for 30 minutes.

 

6) Chill the cheesecake in the fridge before serving.

Hello there honey

HELLO THERE HONEY!

 

 

Following the very exciting arrival last week of our new honey cinnamon cashew butter, it only seems right that we give it a proper introduction.

 

Back in the early days when Pip was trialling out flavours for Pip & Nut this flavour was a big hit with customers. So we’re dead pleased it’s now reappeared.

Sometimes it’s tricky to know what to eat after exercise and how to balance out your fats, protein and carbohydrates, otherwise know as your macros. But, fundamentally, if you’ve managed to get yourself out of bed 30 minutes earlier for that jog round the park or opted for the gym session instead of a glass of wine post work, you absolutely deserve something that tastes great
and that doesn’t feel like anther sacrifice.

Where is your favourite place in London for an outdoor work-out?

Victoria Park – its just on my doorstep and it’s big enough that you feel like you’re not in London. The far end by Hackney Wick is my favourite as it’s always pretty empty and the light through the trees at dawn or dusk is completely surreal.
