Cook up with Vicki and Donna Hay (No 15)...Spiced Lemon Chicken, Creamed Corn Polenta and Sticky Date Pudding

My latest Cook Up with Vicki from Donna Hay magazine...

Menu was...Spiced Lemon Chicken
Creamed Corn Polenta
Sticky Date Pudding (adapted using gluten free self raising flour and rapadura sugar)





Creamed Corn Polenta from this issue...



Sticky Date Pudding from this issue...


Rapadura Sugar and Butter melting...


Pudding cooked...


Texture and colour using the Rapadura...I don't think the colour is much different to using other sugars...


The sauce was delicious...topped with a 'blob' of cream...YUM YUM YUM!!!
Especially since I can rarely buy Sticky Date Pudding gluten free even though it is all over the place in cafes and restaurants!!!


And I've purchased a new pattern...
couldn't resist this as I just loved those deep colours...
but no way will I be starting this right now...
I'm working on my Partner Annie's Swap hosted by Lisa...

Better get cracking...it's due soon...Dzintra
