Jaffa cakes from this Jamie Oliver recipe:
They taste almost entirely unlike jaffa cakes though. Could do with more sweetness. The main problem is the recipe ingredients are all wrong: It needs more cake mix, about half the marmalade, and about twice the chocolate.
Cookies from this BBC recipe:
Not exactly sophisticated, but they taste OK.

After simmering with some vegetables for four hours:
I chopped up the trotters and ears and pressed it in the fridge overnight. It makes a kind of brawn pie:
After breading but before cooking:
The final taste is not unlike nankotsu. It works well with the breadcrumbs, but would be fairly inedible without them.
Update This tastes much better cold the next day, with a bit of mayonnaise.

Tasty! The secret is in the lemon and fennel fronds added afterwards, giving it a nice lift.
Recipe is this one but I didn’t bother with the onion.

Quite sophisticated. Next time, cut the dates up smaller.

Home-roasted peppers, coriander, pimenton and pine nuts pesto, pasta, and fresh salad from the garden.
This is the recipe – don’t put too much paprika in it.
