One of the things about being back in cooking school and having some time on my hands around everything else I’m doing is that I have time to practice what we’re learning. Here, a bit of budín love – one with chocolate, one with limequat marmalade, and one with dried apricots and pistachios….

Mmmmmm …. I’ll have a slice with chocolate.. although apricot sounds wonderful.. it is prettier than any that I see in the bakeries .

They look good, but they need more goodies inside, don’t they?

For me, no. I don’t like cakes like this packed with too much stuff – I could have put more, but I like it to be a little bit of a bite here and there as I eat a slice. I like the cake!

They look divine, I love the one with pistachios and apricots. Could you slice these and slow bake like a biscotti or rusk sort of yummy cookie?

Probably not with this type of dough – biscotti really need a cookie dough to come out the right texture – this being more like the texture of a fruitcake, it’s likely to end up somewhat unpleasant, like really stale cake, if you dry it out like that. But, the same flavors could go into a cookie dough to make biscotti.
