3 Christmas Baking Recipes To Try Today
There are just three incredibly short weeks left until Christmas - and who can believe just how quickly this year has actually gone? It feels as though it’s absolutely flown by… but Christmas it now is and this means all sorts of tasty food is just around the corner, both savoury and sweet.
Now’s the perfect time to get cracking with all your festive baking so you can keep the family well fed and happy between now and the big day. There’s nothing quite like extending the festivities for as long as you can, after all! So, with that in mind, here are a couple of amazing Christmas baking recipes to help get you started. Enjoy!
Mince pie brownies
This BBC Good Food recipe is sure to be a winner, a really fun take on the classic mince pie. It’s a nice easy recipe to get you going if you’re not an experienced baker and uses store cupboard ingredients so you won’t need to source any unusual ingredients.
Giant Ferrero Rocher eclair
If you’re looking to test yourself in the kitchen, check out this recipe on the Delicious magazine website. You’ll have to make your own choux pastry but you’ve got plenty of time to practise this recipe before December 25th - and it would make an amazing showstopper of a pudding on the big day.
Chocolate truffle chestnut torte
Christmas truly is a time of indulgence and you can’t go wrong in this regard with this torte recipe from Jamie Oliver.
Again, you’ll need to make the pastry yourself so factor this into your baking and prep time and you’ll need to find yourself some chestnut puree from somewhere… but the extra effort will reveal itself and you’ll have some very happy diners indeed!
