I am Rita Skeeter and Today I wrote a recipe for Magical Food Department. Me, myself and I wanted to know if I could make a healthy dessert that lurks between your rosy cheeks. What makes a good dessert tick? Well... this one ticks all the broom cupboard boxes.
DUDLEY'S KNICKERBOCKER GLORY 🍨 Happy Friday my fellow Witches and Wizards! During the festive season The Philosopher's Stone is my favorite book to reread. A little phrase from the book: "They ate in the zoo restaurant and when Dudley has his tantrum because his knickerbocker glory didn't have enough ice cream on the top, Uncle Vernon bought him another one and Harry was allowed to finish the first." • J.K Rowling. So I thought it was finally time to create a vegan masterpiece of the most British sundae out there. This is such a fun and great dessert to have at your Witchmas dinner with your magical friends! I will explain from top to bottom: raspberry coulis, mango, pistachio nuts, cherry glace, my homemade raspberry ripple ice cream, coconut whipped cream and a marashino cherry on top. Oh and because it is the festive season a lime leaf on the side for the scent. It is really nice while you eat you get a hit of lime and freshness coming your way. And of course a peppermint candy cane on the side. This recipe is so easy little snuggle muggle Dudley could do it himself if he was not such a little prick. Because you do not even need a ice cream machine. My secret ingredient? Condensed coconut milk. Literal heaven let me tell you! It makes the ice cream scrumptious and indulgent.
Goodday my fellow Witches and Wizards! You are officially invited to the Yule Ball. To be honest I am a little bit obsessed with the aestetics of the Ball. Everything is in some much detail and I am all up for it! The ice sculpture from the Ball that I have seen at the WB Tour was breathtaking and it has spinning in my mind ever since. So now it is the perfect timing so share my Yule Ball recipes! Today I created Yule Balls: coconut bliss balls🥥 with coconut cream, cacao butter, vanilla extract and edible snow (powdered sugar) haha! They are so easy to make and so incredibly magical. So nice to share with your magical family or friends with a Yule inspired cocktail or just a cup of tea. The recipe makes twelve yule balls but you can easily double up the quantities for a bigger crowd. One of my favorite scènes in the Goblet of Fire is of course the Yule Ball. I ALWAYS cry my eyes out when Hermoine comes down the stairs with her stunning dress😭 and the fact that are the three magical schools are all together getting their party on! The teachers who put in their best effort. Flitwick crowd surfing, which is freaking iconic! And the mesmerizing Waltz music ughhh I just love everything about the Yule Ball. I would love to put my most beautiful dress on and get wild on Wizarding Rock ARE U READYYYYY HOGWARTS!
Today on my festive winter menu: Mini gingerbread and treacle bundt cakes. Heavenly scented with ginger, gingerbread spices, treacle and lemon zest. An absolute favorite of Harry Potter himself. Although I love recreating and veganizing Wizarding World recipes and treats, I decided to make these cute mini bundt cakes instead because they are incredibly easy to make. Just mixing everything in one bowl and Bob is your uncle. While I was making the set up for this recipe I had 'Harry in Winter' playing on the background. Seeing Harry walking through Hogwarts in the snow. Snowy owls everywhere it made me year up. December is always an emotional month for me. I go so deep in my reflections and feelings I experienced this year and I heard this song live during Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire in concert. Memories showed themselves and with those memories and feelings I was abel to create this today. In full Christmas spirit of course. These bundt cakes are wonderful to share with your friends and family during the Holiday season. Served with powdered sugar (looks so beautiful and looks like snow) or with a glug of maple syrup on the top. Or some I decorated with candied ginger. Best enjoyed with a hot chocolate or a delicious cup of tea.
