Instructions
  1. Heat oven to 180C/160C fan. Put the egg whites and sugar in a stand mixer and begin to beat on a low speed for a few mins, turn the mixer up and wait another couple of mins before adding the lemon juice, vanilla and a pinch of salt. Turn the mixer up again and whisk on high until you have a thick, soft, shiny meringue with a peak that flops over.
  2. Fold in the flour with a spatula until there are no lumps left, then scrape the mixture into a 25cm angel cake tin. Bake for 40-45 mins or until the cake is puffed and lightly browned and a skewer comes out clean. Turn the tin upside down – if it doesn’t have its own legs, then invert it onto four water glasses or tins of food exactly the same size. Leave to cool completely.
  3. Run a palette knife around the tin to loosen the cake and gently let it drop out, then set aside on a board or cake stand.
  4. To make the meringue icing, put the egg whites, sugar, vanilla, pinch of cream of tartar and 100ml water in a large heatproof bowl set over a pan of simmering water and beat it on high speed with an electric whisk for 15 mins or until thick and shiny and standing up in stiff peaks. Ice the cake straight away as the icing will stiffen as it sets. Spread over using a palette knife or use a piping bag to pipe on swirls.
  5. Put the iced cake in the fridge while you make the strawberry ganache. Put the white chocolate in a small heatproof bowl and set aside. Put the cream and strawberries in a saucepan over a medium heat and cook, stirring all the time, until the strawberries have broken down and the cream starts to simmer. Quickly pour the hot cream mixture over the white chocolate and leave it, without stirring, for 1 min, then add the food colouring and mix until smooth.
  6. Push through a sieve into a jug (to get rid of the strawberry seeds) then, while it’s still runny, pour it over the top of the cake and let it drizzle down the sides. Put the cake back in the fridge for 10-20 mins to set. Just before serving (particularly if it’s a hot day), top with the strawberries and your choice of decorations.

  4. Stir banana mixture into dry ingredients just until combined. Stir in blueberries and 2 cups quinoa. Divide batter among muffin cups. Sprinkle lightly with raw sugar and reserved 1/4 cup quinoa.
  5. Bake muffins until tops are firm, just beginning to brown, and a tester inserted into muffins comes out clean, 30–40 minutes. Let cool slightly before serving.

For the coulis: In a medium saucepan over medium-low heat, combine the raspberries, sugar, orange juice and vanilla. Cook, stirring frequently, until the raspberries are completely broken down and the sauce is syrupy, 10 minutes. Strain, a little at a time, through a fine-mesh sieve into a bowl, stirring to separate the seeds. Stir the orange zest in the strained sauce. Serve warm or set aside to cool.

Carefully remove the pan from the oven and add the butter, swirling until it is melted and coats the pan. Pour in the batter and immediately return the pan to the oven. Bake until the pancake is puffed and golden brown, 16 to 18 minutes.
For the Dutch Pancake: Preheat the oven to 220c. Put a 25cm cast-iron skillet or oven proof thick based fry pan in the oven to heat for 10 minutes.

Instructions
  1. Pulse flour, salt, and sugar in a food processor (or whisk together by hand in a bowl). Add butter and pulse until mixture resembles coarse meal, with some larger pieces remaining. Drizzle 2 tablespoons water over mixture. Pulse (or mix with a fork) until mixture just begins to hold together. If dough is too dry, add 2 tablespoons more water, 1 tablespoon at a time, and pulse (or mix with a fork).
  2. Gather dough into a ball, wrap loosely in plastic wrap, and press each into a disk using a rolling pin. Refrigerate until firm, well wrapped in plastic, 1 hour or up to 1 day.
  3. Preheat oven to 180 C. On a lightly floured piece of grease proof paper, roll out dough into an approximate 20cm oval, around 1/2 cm thick. Transfer dough (on paper) to a baking sheet or tray.
  4. Pulse almonds, 3 tablespoons sugar, and the flour in a food processor until ground to a coarse meal. Sprinkle almond mixture over dough. With a spatula, transfer plum slices to dough, spacing close together and leaving a 5cm border; press lightly to fan out. Fold edge of dough over fruit. Refrigerate 30 minutes.
  5. Brush dough with cream; sprinkle galette evenly with remaining 1 tablespoon of sugar. Bake until crust is deep golden, and plums are juicy and bubbling, about 40 minutes. Transfer to a wire rack, and let cool completely.
