Although I'm not doing the challenge, I have been thinking along the lines of a bread & butter pud using some of last years frozen rhubarb but not quite invented the recipe yet... bigthink

I've done that substituting rhubarb for the dried fruit. I was nice but a bit soggy and not as nice as a traditional one IMHO.

I would be very circumspect about using frozen rhubarb - it does leach water like there's no tomorrow and high potential for sog factor IMO.
I have had successful B&B pud experiments using: bread and butter and marmalade; brioche; cranberries in place of sultanas; pain au chocolat; a splash of Grand Marnier.

I made an experimental Eve's pudding yesterday with apple, peach, plums (our own bottled from last year), and banana, cooked down first with bay leaves, brown sugar, cinnamon and ginger and a sauce made from the plum juices reduced with the juices that ran off the fruit, and whisked cream with vanilla seeds in over the top.

Quite nice it was too.

Simple veg soup today.

No 10 here - Friendship Cake. I'll do a blog about it tomorrow but now I need to head back to the lambing pen to see if Droopy Drawers has had any more lambs.

#9 (I have decided to discount recipes I have done before but with one ingredient changed because they are not new recipes per se.): Cavolo Ripieno

Cabbage leaves stuffed with ground turkey, breadcrumbs, egg, sage, parsley and onion, baked on a bed of tomato sauce and white wine, covered with more tom sauce, then topped with toasted breadcrumbs, mint and parsley.

Slow roasted ( very slow!) Brisket. Not done this before. Usually do a Pot au Feu.

But as Aga is on anyway, seems a shame not to use it.. so...we are trying a Mary Berry Aga recipe idea...but much slower cooking than she suggests ( her times looked more suited to rather more tender cuts of meat)

Will report back, but it seems to be working well...judging by the small tast I just had.
mmmm

#11: Arista alla Porchetta

Tenderloin of pork butterflied and stuffed in a roll with sauteed fennel bulb, fennel seeds and raw fronds, breadcrumbs, onion and ground pork shoulder, roasted on a bed of red onions.

Considering I had forgotten all about preparing supper till 1/4 to 5 I was pleased to have this in the oven by six, including a dash to the shops for fennel.

#12 Steamed trout with ginger and spring onion with a soy/chicken stock drizzle - was very nice with wild rice. Bea ate all of it which I was slightly surprised at - was expecting issues with the black sauce and black rice but no complaints at all. Leo took more convincing.

They also ate a Thai green chicken curry the night before with great enthusiasm, and not a word about the spice levels. Have not listed that though as it was an old warhorse of a recipe.

12. - Healthyish oat and krispie chocolate bars
13. Old fashioned teabread (the sort you soak the fruit in tea overnight)
14. Balti prawns and veg
15. Green lentil dahl

Thought I'd better do some savouries having had a run of cakes Laughing

Bara Brith. Make this once a month, two at a time and give one to my diabetic neighbour as it has no sugar in it.

Ah - I have heard people talk of BAra Brith and never made the connection.

Have you got your recipe? Mine was off the Internet and needed a bit of tweaking as there was too much flour in it - although of course I could always do a search for Bara Brith Rolling Eyes

I will dig it out Rosie - I mainly do it from memory now but will check that my memory matches what the original was. The original recipe we have is on a tattered tea-stained piece of paper, hand-written very long ago by someone with tiny but beautiful script. I found it tucked in the back of an old recipe book I bought in a secondhand bookshop once. I like to think it was a little Welsh granny in a slate-roofed cottage who wrote it out.
