Zesty Citrus Loaf

1 October

I feel we've got the balance right this week; below you'll find two gorgeous baking recipes sitting side-by-side with two deliciously wholesome dishes. Then again, maybe I'm not the best one to ask about balance – I did have cake for breakfast this morning. Who could resist a treat from Bluebells Cakery, after all – their new café is filled with more than a few temptations. You can read about it here, if you dare!
Online Editor,

Zesty Citrus Loaf

Claire Aldous had an abundance of lemons in her kitchen to use – the result being this gorgeous moist loaf. It's perfect served with a bowl of thick plain yoghurt marbled with lemon curd.

Cauliflower Fried 'Rice' with Crispy Fried Eggs

A takeaway dinner favourite is made a little bit lighter and more wholesome with the substitution of cauliflower ‘rice' instead of white rice. This dish is incredibly speedy to make so is perfect as a midweek meal.

Salted Peanut Caramel Chocolate Popcorn Tart

It is unbelievably rich (shocked?) but not actually as sweet as you might imagine thanks to the use of 70% dark chocolate and a bit of sea salt to balance it out. I am leaving the peanut butter type option up to you – I used really good quality crunchy, but if you prefer smooth, go with that. Don't freak out that the recipe looks long – I promise it's very straight forward!

Wholewheat Fettuccine with Kale, Caramelised Onions and Goat's Cheese

Amy Chaplin's latest recipe book is brimming with lush, wholesome recipes like this super–simple pasta dish with kale and marinated goat's cheese. It will also work well with penne or other types of wholegrain pasta.
