Cream adds a richness and depth to any recipe whether a rich ice cream, a creamy pasta sauce or key part of a baked delight.
This cake always goes down well. It's so easy to remember - as it's equal measures of butter, sugar and flour. If you're in a hurry shove all the ingredients for the cake in a bowl and cream together before you bake it.
This is a thick, flavourful cream of broccoli soup that the whole family will enjoy. Serve with fresh, crusty bread.
My Italian grandmother never put cream in her Carbonara sauce when she made it - she said it wasn't the way it was supposed to be made. This is the way.
This is my favourite throw-together-in-a-few-minutes vegetarian pasta. The sauce is ready by the time the pasta has cooked. You can use any long pasta for this dish which - although it has cream in it - is not thick or heavy. Serve with grated parmesan and add smoked salmon to the individual bowls just before serving for an Omega 3 (but not veggo) hit. Everyone who eats this, leaves the house with the recipe.
This creamy sweet fudge with two kinds of chocolate and chopped nuts will disappear as fast as a wink! Makes a great gift.
