Mulled Wine Chocolate Cake
Posted by Gill Bland Monday, 18th December 2017
I know some people get sick of the flavours of cinnamon, nutmeg, cloves and orange zest at Christmas. I am not one of those people. I am one of those people who sprinkle all-spice into their hot Ribena as soon as the nights get dark in a bid to emulate mulled wine without consuming unhealthy amounts of the ruby-red spiced booze-of-delight. So, when I noticed a recipe for a red wine cake sometime earlier in the year I parked it at the back of my baker’s brain and waited for the festive season to come around so that I could make mulled wine chocolate cake. This recipe makes no apology for throwing all the Christmas flavours at it. You can stick to just mulled wine, you can have cinnamon icing and if you want to really go for it you can make a mulled fig jam to dot through the mixture or to fill the middle of each cupcake. It’s up to you how much you want to gild the Christmas lily (or indeed poinsettia).0 Comments
Christmas Day made easy, with your Rangemaster range cooker
Posted by Alexandra Dibble Tuesday, 28th November 2017
If I was only allowed to pick one day out of the three hundred and sixty five days in a year that I grateful for being a Rangemaster Range Cooker Owner that would definitely have to be Christmas Day. I have quite a large family and being the only foodie in the family, I somehow manage every year to get the job of Christmas lunch. So this year with fifteen for Christmas dinner, yeah that’s right fifteen hunger and often slightly merry mouths to feed, I truly am grateful for my Rangemaster Range Cooker. The Rangemaster Ovens have the largest oven capacities on the market, the main multifunction oven has a 73 litre capacity and the tall ovens in the 90cm and 100cm appliances have a 67 litre and 82 litre capacity respectively, making feeding a large number of people just that little bit easier.0 Comments

Gingerbread Mocha Mousse Cake
Posted by Gill Bland Wednesday, 7th December 2016
Not everyone loves Christmas pudding and even if you do, it can be a bit much at the end ofa full Christmas Dinner. This dessert makes a lighter alternative and is quick and easy to assemble, especially if you make the biscuits ahead of time. It’s an ode to the Christmas drinks so popular in high street coffee shops at this time of year and who knows, maybe it’ll give you a nice caffeine boost at the end of the meal - just enough to make it through the washing up before you collapse in a heap.0 Comments

It’s that time of year again
Posted by Alexandra Dibble Tuesday, 15th November 2016
It’s that time of year again, the weather is getting cold, the hat, scarves, coats and gloves are being dug out of wardrobes, all the takeaway coffee cups have turned red and that certain department store have released the highly anticipated Christmas advert.0 Comments
Leftover turkey? Here’s how to use it up...
Posted by James McIntosh Monday, 21st December 2015
Turkey sandwiches, turkey casserole, turkey curry, perhaps even turkey risotto, turkey stew… It can go on for days. But it need not be a chore.
Planning leftovers, especially with too much turkey can be a pest. From experience, ordering a full turkey of about 200g per person is plenty (including carcass weight).0 Comments
Musings on Christmas dinner
Posted by Gill Bland Tuesday, 8th December 2015
Christmas dinner - the most wonderful meal of the year?
I’m going to have come clean on this subject. I have only ever cooked Christmas dinner once. I massively over catered and I over cooked the veg. But, despite the spiced red cabbage mountain left after my attempt I’m not averse to the idea of trying again because you know what? I’m pretty certain that the cook is more critical on themselves than anyone else is of their cooking when it comes to Christmas dinner. In fact how about we don’t call it that? Let’s call it a turkey roast dinner to celebrate Christmas. It’s not your only dinner of the Christmas period after-all and there’s a lot more to Christmas than that one meal.0 Comments

They say that good things come in small packages and whilst this is true in many respects, bigger is definitely better when it comes to cooking the Christmas feast. When you consider all the elements that make up this traditional family meal, from the roast potatoes crisp with goose fat to the turkey surrounded by little pigs in blankets, not to mention the vegetables, the gravy and the Christmas pudding, as well as any extra sides and vegetarian dishes, it’s essential to have the biggest ovens you can sensibly squeeze into the kitchen. Rangemaster’s Excel 110 range cooker is guaranteed to take the stress out of the big day as it comes with two large A-rated ovens, a smaller slow cook oven, grill, warming zone, griddle and six-burner gas hob. Take your pick from silver, gloss black, stainless steel, royal pearl, slate or, perfect for the festive season, a mouthwatering cranberry shade to suit your scheme.0 Comments

What do you normally have for breakfast on Christmas day? It’s a tough one – do you go light to leave space for extra stuffing (literally and figuratively) later on? Do you go decadent and rich? Do you wish you could go decadent and rich but really grab half a slice of lukewarm toast as the kids drag you to “see what Father Christmas brought?
After carefully considering the festive break-fast I thought that what would be most useful was a customisable option. Something that can be made easily and eaten either slowly in conjunction with a bucks fizz, or in a flurry of shredded wrapping paper with a mug of tea.0 Comments
