Bruschetta

Breakfast Bruschetta

Something that is served as an evening savoury or appetizer may not seem an obvious choice for breakfast.

Custard cake

Birthday Custard Sponge

This cake has been an essential part of birthday celebrations in my house since my children were little.

Mousse

Chocolate Olive Oil Mousse

I first came across a version of this voluptuously soft, rich chocolate mousse at Morito, one of my favourite places to eat in London.

Salt and vinegar potatoes

Salt and Vinegar Potatoes

While steaming then roasting potatoes may seem rather a fandango, one bite of these will convince you that it's utterly worth it.

Birthday cake

Autumnal Birthday Cake

I know that adorning plates with autumn leaves is not my usual aesthetic, but that's another benefit of using this as a birthday cake

Cheesecake

London Cheesecake

I cannot tell you how much the velvety smoothness is enhanced by cooking the cheesecake in the water bath.

chocolate cake

Old Fashioned Chocolate Cake

If you're going to get started, this is the cake you should begin with. It is, for me, the essence of chocolate cake.

Cherry almond cake

Cherry Almond Loaf Cake

I have a nostalgic fondness for this yellow slab punctuated by waxy halves of scarlet cherries.

Vanilla fudge

Vanilla Fudge

I confess that even listing the ingredients below makes me hyperventilate slightly.

Bread

Nigellan Flatbread

It's not hard, and although I love some of the flatbreads you can buy, it gives me more pleasure to make these.

Soft White Dinner Rolls

It may seem a crackpot idea to suggest you make fresh white bread rolls for your children's supper, but give me a moment.

Balsamic Onion Soda Bread | Guest Recipes | Nigella's Recipes

For a year and a half I worked in a lovely little tearoom in the middle of nowhere, halfway up a glen. It was hard graft but, in many respects, my dream job.

Salted chocolate tart

Salted Chocolate Tart

I never lie about how effortless something is to make, but no one will believe me on this one.

Fries recipe

Tuscan fries recipe

Cesare Casella, a chef from Lucca, whose family used to run the fabulous Vipore restaurant and who is now cooking in New York, is the man who invented Tuscan fries. Think French fries, but with garlic cloves and fresh herbs thrown into the hot oil towards the end of the cooking time.

Spanish omelette

Mixed seafood

Easy Seafood | Community Recipes | Nigella's Recipes

Now that the weathers getting nice(ish) thoughts of summer dishes come to mind. I fancied a paella the other night but wanted to sit sipping wine and chatting instead of standing over the stove. I concocted this oven-cooked risotto based on paella. It fills the house with a gorgeous, peppery and summery aroma and tastes delicious. I've frozen leftovers and it works fine heated from frozen in the microwave. You can substitute chicken for the seafood (See my other recipe) or use both! You can…

Onions roasted

Roast Red Onions With Basil

This is one of those recipes that, while not quick to cook, is the work of easy minutes to make. Also, because it's best warm rather than hot, you can cook this before getting on with anything else, thus freeing up the oven later, should you need it. I know that having to peel this many onions doesn't seem like light work, but if you quarter them first, the peel almost falls off. And I never worry about a bit of it here and there in the pan, anyway. I prefer to use smallish red onions, but…

Cheesy chilli

Cheesy Chilli

I can't count how often I find myself stirring a pan with some mince in it, day to day. Not that this is anything to apologize for: it's easy, quick and comforting. I could probably measure out my life in chilli bowls, and that's no bad thing either. This recipe draws again on a favourite time-saving practice of mine, which is to start off with some paprika-piccante chorizo sausages that give off a fiery orange oil in which to sear and season the mince. Tex-Mex custom decrees that chilli be…

Chilli sauce

Jumbo Chilli Sauce

This chilli sauce is big – big flavour, big kick, big reward.

Croque monsieur

Croque Monsieur Bake

This is also just the ticket for an early evening supper, the sort you eat in your dressing gown.

Soup

Split Pea Soup With Chilli, Ginger And Lime

This is a thick, wintry soup made spiky and fresh with chilli, ginger and lime.

Celery Soup | Community Recipes | Nigella's Recipes

Finding a way to use up a vegetable I don't prefer as a 'stand alone' item, I came up with this soup. It's delicious.

Slime Soup

This is just the thing to set children up for a night of marauding through the chilly streets trick-or-treating

Slab cake

Coconut and Passionfruit Slab Cake | Guest Recipes | Nigella's Recipes

This is a super-delicious coconut cake with a tart passionfruit icing. Believe it or not, given its incredible crumb and cakey texture, it is flourless.

Chocolate sheet cake

Chocolate Sheet Cake

It’s a great way to feed a lot of people and, in my book, the more people get to eat cake, the better.

Ham

Ham in Coca Cola

No one who cooks it, cooks it just once: it always earns a place in every repertoire.

Christmas cake

Christmas-Spiced Chocolate Cake

There are few more popular ways to end a dinner party than with a fallen chocolate cake.

Date and Marmalade Christmas Cake

This cake tastes like Christmas pudding – a very, very good Christmas pudding – the sort the Quakers (as I’m fond of quoting) once magnificently condemned as “the invention of the scarlet whore of Babylon”. It’s rich, damp, treacly and so heady, it doesn’t even need the traditional alcohol in it. It also happens to be gluten- and dairy-free, and is a last-minute cake, so very useful if you haven’t got round to making that family recipe that needs to be baked ahead and fed with brandy for 6…

Veg bake

Cheese and Potato Pie | Community Recipes | Nigella's Recipes

A good hearty winter dish, best served with bacon or sausages, mushrooms, tomatoes and baked beans. This dish can be made in the morning and left covered in the fridge until the evening, if so allow allow a few extra minutes baking time. For a change the mixture can be baked in 4 individual well buttered dishes. I have frozen this dish before baking, it does seperate but a good whisk and it comes back together well but does not souffle up so much. Serves 4 - 6 people (or it has been known 3…

Creamy Cheese, Leek and Potato Bake | Community Recipes | Nigella's Recipes

A lovely creamy bake, with layered sliced potatoes, then a layer of chopped leeks, then the creamy sauce and grated cheese on top, yummy!

Potato gratin

Creamy Potato Gratin

My not entirely orthodox way of turning out this otherwise classic dish of cream-softened potatoes.

Squid and prawns with chilli and marjoram recipe

I love to serve this along with plain, boiled Italian black rice, which I advise for its drama as well as its sauce-soaking capacity. But if you want to stretch the amounts below to feed more people, then cook a packet of spaghetti and toss the lemony chilli-flecked seafood through it, making sure you use a little pasta cooking water to help the sauce emulsify.

Birthday Custard Sponge

This cake has been an essential part of birthday celebrations in my house since my children were little.

Crunchy Chicken Cutlets

I could have called these Cornflake-Crunchy Chicken Cutlets as the crisp coating is provided not by breadcrumbs, but by cornflakes.

Split Pea Soup With Chilli, Ginger And Lime

This is a thick, wintry soup made spiky and fresh with chilli, ginger and lime.

Ginger and Walnut Carrot Cake

This is very different from the richly sweet, loftily layered and aerated American original.

Chocolate Olive Oil Mousse

I first came across a version of this voluptuously soft, rich chocolate mousse at Morito, one of my favourite places to eat in London.

Eggs in Purgatory

There is something about this easy and quick dish of eggs that just hits the spot when you're in need of morning-after succour.

Salt and Vinegar Potatoes

While steaming then roasting potatoes may seem rather a fandango, one bite of these will convince you that it's utterly worth it.
