For today’s #CraveChristmasCountdown post, I’m partnering with @moorishsmokedhumous. Supporting small producers is a passion of mine, and the folks at Moorish have some cracking dips! Their smoked humous (yes, SMOKED humous) is the bomb, and they do a whole range of amazing dips. I’ve got a whole box of dips to give away that will make your Christmas party the best in town - find out how to win over on #BakingMartha in my most recent blog post.

✨🎄 We’ve reached 16 days to go in the #CraveChristmasCountdown so I think it’s about time for a mince pie! This is a recipe I wrote last year for Waitrose - nut crusted mince pies. Think sticky mincemeat filling topped with a chewy, caramelised nutty layer. Recipe link in my story!
Also - the Crave Christmas Shop is OPEN again this weekend! Get yourself or your favourite baker a signed copy of Crave, for a limited time only. Find out more on #BakingMartha ✨🎄

🎄✨ 17 days to go! ✨🎄Perfect Christmassy evening earlier this week at the #CanonXmasMeet - I’ve still got so much to learn as a photographer but found it so fascinating to learn more about photography, both food and night-time shooting. So magical learning to capture long exposure shots of moving lights - and I even got my own festive portrait done! Thanks for a wonderful evening @canonuk.

🎄✨ 18 DAYS TO GO ✨🎄 So you’ve made (or bought - no shame here) your Christmas pudding, but what to top it with? Vanilla brandy custard, that’s what. You can make homemade custard up to 2 days before you needed it, so get it going on the 23rd when you’ve got a bit of peace and simply reheat on the big day. The taste is so superior to shop-bought, and it’s actually far less effort than you might think.

4 egg yolks
50g caster sugar
150ml milk
150ml double cream
1 tsp vanilla bean paste
60ml brandy

1. Whisk together the egg yolks and caster sugar in a large measuring jug until well combined, then set aside. Pour the milk, cream and vanilla bean paste into a saucepan and heat until the mixture starts to steam.

2. Pour a small amount of the warm mixture into the eggs and whisk quickly to combine. Slowly add the rest of the milk and cream mixture into the eggs, whisking all the time.

3. Return the custard to the saucepan and warm over a medium heat, stirring all the time, for 5-6 minutes or until the mixture thickens enough to coat the back of the spoon. Stir in the brandy and serve immediately or cover and chill for up to 48 hours.

It’s day 1 of the #CraveChristmasCountdown and what better to start with than Christmas cake? My recipe this year is all about simplicity. Beautiful, jammy, dark fruits baked into a treacle sponge smothered in a blanket of royal icing. Make it your weekend project, then feed it with brandy up until the big day and it will be stodgy, deeply alcoholic and will set you up well! Who’s making their cake this weekend?
Find the recipe on my blog, on the @waitrose website or pick it up in the #WaitroseWeekend paper.
