I don’t really do much in the way of baking. I like cooking savoury meals and I can produce a three course meal for a dinner party but I always go for an easy dessert. I am not really a baker even though I love watching “The Great British Bake Off” but I have recently bought Jamie Oliver’s latest book “5 Ingredients”.
I love the idea of recipes that don’t need an, arm’s length, list of ingredients. I got my copy half price with my sainburys points and told my husband I would try to cook one recipe from it each week to make it good value for money.
I started with the salmon fish cakes which were good and looked pretty much like the photo. I then decided to try the apple crumble cookies. Mine were a bit more rustic than Jamie’s because he used a food processor, which I refuse to posses in my kitchen, so my dried apples were hand chopped.
They did actually really taste like apple crumble. Next time I would make sure there were no apple pieces on top as they burnt a bit. Over all though I was pretty pleased with them. I love the simplicity of this book and will continue to try to make one recipe a week.
