- Brown bread recipe
- Scones recipe
- Pizza dough recipe
- Apple tart recipe
- Soda bread recipe
- Strawberry daiquiri recipe
- Chicken recipes
- Carrot cake recipe
- Margarita recipe
- Chocolate cake recipe
Scroll down to find out how to make all of Ireland’s most Googled recipes of 2020.
BREAD AND CAKES
Brown Bread and soda bread
There’s very little more pacifying than a scone layered with dollops of jam and cream; if you like a buttery scone, try this Kerrygold recipe.
Courtesy of the book Pizza de Luxe by Stefano Manfredi, we have the recipe for a simple, quick and perfect pizza dough recipe made by the majority of pizza makers.
Apple tart recipe
Looking for an easy apple tart recipe? IMAGE deputy editor Megan Burns recommends the Bon Appétit’s fall fruit galette. “They are the perfect way to achieve the deliciousness of your favourite fruit pie, but without the effort of neatly forming it in a tin. They work with almost any fruit filling (add cornflour for softer fruits), and always look ‘rustic’ rather than messy, no mater how slapdash your pastry skills are.”
Chocolate cake recipe
If you’re looking for a Christmas recipe, try this easy recipe for a chocolate Swiss roll that the kids can help you decorate, or this chocolate orange gingerbread loaf that tastes like Christmas in a tin.
Carrot cake recipe
For a festive bite-size dessert addition to your Christmas table, when you’re really a bit too full for dessert anyway, try these carrot cake balls extracted from Bliss Bites by Kate Bradley. The prep takes just 10 minutes.
Strawberry daiquiris and Margaritas
For daiquiris, you can’t beat the GastroGays’ frozen strawberry and black pepper recipe, but if you’re making cocktails for Christmas day, check out this Gingerbread Daquiri recipe. As for margaritas, when we spoke to Darren Kennedy earlier this year, he told us he’d been working on an Instagram Live series Cocktail Time, long before anyone had heard of the QuaranTucci. Check out his Spicy Margarita tutorial here.
