The best friend and I spent an evening out in Brick Lane (what’s new, haha) and tried out this place (which shall remain unnamed) where we thought we’d have the matcha latte we’ve been so desperate to try after hearing/seeing the raving reviews all over snapchat and instagram. Of course, we were naive to think that something so talked about would have to be nice. Let’s just say, we spent £19.30 on food/drinks that we shall never be having again – sad times, I know, I wanted to cry.
So, I invited her back to my place and set up this small spread for her to enjoy with some of my family.
- 1 packet Ahmed’s Orange Jelly
- 425ml boiling water
- 1 can of squirty whipped cream
- Pinch of cinnamon and sugar
- In a jug, combine the water and jelly crystals. Pour them into your desired pots (I managed to fill 8 Gü glass ramekins) and place in the fridge for 30-45 minutes to set.
- Once set, squirt the whipped cream in a spiral over it and sprinkle with some cinnamon and sugar.
- Serve immediately.
- Ready rolled puff pastry
- Cooked lamb mince (in the same way as you would for shepherd’s pie)
- 1 egg
- Preheat the oven to 180°C.
- Unroll the puff pastry sheet and lay flat on the counter.
- Put an even layer of the cooked mince onto the sheet and roll tightly lengthways.
- With a serrated knife, cut the dough into 1.5 – 2 inch sections and position in an oven-proof pan so that the pinwheels are flat and spaced out.
- Crack an egg into a cup and whisk well. Brush the pastries with this.
- Place in the oven for 15-20 minutes or until golden brown.
- Can be served hot or cold.
