Step 1

Preheat the oven to 140°C, fan oven 120°C, Gas Mark 1. Draw a 30cm diameter circle on a sheet of non-stick baking parchment. Place a couple of drops of oil onto a baking sheet, and put the baking paper on top (the oil will help to prevent it from moving).

Step 2

Put the egg whites into a large grease-free bowl. Using a hand-held electric whisk with scrupulously clean beaters, whisk the egg whites on full speed until they hold their shape. Gradually add the Caster sugar, whisking well on high speed until the egg whites are very stiff and glossy.

Step 3

Fold the chia seeds through the mixture. Heap half the meringue onto the baking paper and spread it out with a palette knife or the back of a spoon into an even layer over the circle. Heap the remaining meringue around the outside edge to form a border.

Step 4

Transfer to the middle shelf of the oven and bake for 1½-2 hours. The meringue will dry out rather than cook at this low temperature. It won’t harm the meringue if you open the door at any time. Cool the meringue completely, then carefully remove the lining paper. Transfer to a serving plate.

Step 5

Whip the cream in a large chilled bowl until it holds its shape. Fold through the lime zest, then spoon it on top of the meringue and spread it out to cover the centre up to the border. Spoon the blueberry jam and remaining blueberries on top. Serve, decorated with lime slices and mint sprigs.

TOP TIP

You can make the meringue base a few days before you need it – just keep it in an airtight container in a cool place.

Tea and olive oil in a cake... Sounds strange, tastes incredible! 

With a pretty fresh orange topping, this fragrant cake has to be tasted to be believed. A great one to make for Mother's Day later this month... be sure to wash it down with a cup of tea.

Ingredients

2 Large Oranges
225ml Olive Oil
200g Ground Almonds
120g Polenta
1 tsp Baking Powder
3 Large Eggs
200g Tate & Lyle Caster Sugar
Semi Dried Oranges Slices 
Scented Thyme Leaves

Method

Peel one of the oranges removing the pith and chop finely, place in a bowl with the juice, to one side.
Heat the oven to 180c/160c Fan/Gas Mark 4.
Mix the almonds, polenta, baking powder in a bowl.
Whisk the eggs and sugar until pale and fluffy, gradually pour in the olive oil once incorporated fold in the finely chopped orange, mix well and add the dry ingredients.
Pour the cake batter into a greased and lined 23cm round tin. Bake for approx. 55 minutes, use a skewer to test whether the cake is cooked, it should come out clean if it is, if not cook for a further 5-10 minutes.
Cool on a cooling rack.
Slice the other orange finely and place the slices on a baking tray in the oven at 180c fan /Gas mark 6 for 8-10 minutes.
Allow to cool and decorate the cooled cake with the slices and some thyme sprigs.
There's a reason Tate & Lyle is Trusted By The Best. 

Because we're the high-quality cane sugar you can always count on, no matter what the recipe calls for!
We don't know why people put carrots in cake... but we applaud the zany person who first tried it! 🥕

Now here we all are in 2024 and it's National Carrot Cake Day - a day devoted to our favourite cream cheese and walnut-covered beauties.

(And a great excuse to go bake one!) Here's our recipe - link in bio!
A bit more of an experimental pancake offering here... filled with kimchi and Asian flavours! 

Ideal for anyone who's gone off jam or lemon juice this week, we recommend trying out this much more savoury stack:

Ingredients:

For The Kimchi:

1 Chinese Cabbage
6 cloves garlic crushed
5cm Ginger grated
2 Tbsp Fish sauce
2 Tbsp Sriracha sauce
1 Tbsp Tate & Lyle Preserving Sugar
3 Tbsp Rice Vinegar
8 Radishes, coarsely grated
2 Carrots, cut into matchstick pieces
4 Spring onions, finely sliced

For The Pancakes:

2 Medium Eggs
2 Tbsp Soy Sauce
200g Kimchi
3 Tbsp Kimchi Brine
225g Plain flour
½ tsp Baking Powder
100ml Water
6 Spring onions finely sliced
Oil to fry

Method:

For the Kimchi:
-Quarter the cabbage and remove the core, slice into strips of approx 25mm. Place in a bowl with two teaspoons of sea salt. Leave for 1 hour.
-Mix the garlic, ginger, fish sauce, siracha sauce, sugar, rice vinegar together.
-Rinse the cabbage and drain well, transfer to a large bowl mix the paste in along with the radishes, carrots and spring onions.
-Pack the Kimchi into Kilner jars and leave to ferment overnight at room temperature.
-Chill the next days. It will keep for 2 weeks in the refrigerator.

For the Kimchi Pancakes:
-Whisk the eggs with the soy sauce, blend in the brine and the water.
-Blend in the flour and baking powder mix well and add the chopped Kimchi.
-Add half of the sliced spring onions to the mix.
-Heat 1 tbsp of oil in a large frying pan. Add spoonfuls of the batter to the base of the pan allowing a little space between each one.
-Fry for 2-3 minutes on each side until golden brown. Repeat until all the batter is used up.
-Make 15 small pancakes.
-They can also be frozen, so why not freeze half of the batch if they've not already been demolished!
No aspartame. Low in calories. And no compromise in taste. Looks like it’s not just sugar we’re experts in… Tate & Lyle Sweetener - now available from @Asda & @Sainsburys.
Baking better is as easy as reaching for the right sugar.

And a sprinkle (or spoonful!) of Light Brown Soft Cane Sugar brings a little hint of caramel and a whole load of soft texture to your bakes.

We never make cookies without it!
