  13. Cool for 15 minutes then refrigerate about 4 hours or until chilled. Cooling this pie is important as it allows for the starch to set and hold the pie together.
  14. Serve reheated with a little whipped cream or your favourite ice cream.

Chef Notes

  • The secret to this delicious, moist pie is that the flour in the mixture acts as a binder, holding the pie together. The flour that is on the outside edges of the pie, become caramelized and act as a crust.
  • Make mini pumpkin pies by baking the batter in a greased muffin tin. Allow the pies to cool for about 20 minutes, before turning them out onto a resting rack to fully cool.

The Most Delicious Cherry Cake You’ve Ever Had

cherry cake hero (1 of 1)


When cherries are around, the best way to serve them is tossed with a little bit of sugar, along side some whipped cream and a simple vanilla cake. Their flavour is delicate, so there’s no need to complicate them. This recipe works amazing well with the tried and true Mirage Vanilla cake, as it has the perfect texture for absorbing flavour, while still showcasing this amazing fruit.

Makes: 1 double layered cake
Prep Time: 20 minutes
Cooking and Cooling Time: 2 hours

Ingredients

  • 1 recipe Mirage Margarine Vanilla Cake
  • 375ml / 1 ½ cup 35% cream
  • 30g / ¼ cup icing sugar
  • 200g 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 125ml / ½ cup water
  • 10ml / 2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 350g / 2 cups fresh cherries
  • 30g / ¼ icing sugar

Directions

  1. Prepare one recipe of Mirage Margarine Vanilla Cake, making two 8 inch round cakes.
  2. Let the cakes cool completely.
  3. While the cakes are cooling prepare a vanilla simple syrup, by combining 1 cup of granulated white sugar, with ½ cup of water and 2 teaspoons of vanilla extract in a pot and bring to a simmer, stirring occasionally until the sugar is dissolved. Remove from heat and set aside, covered until you’re ready to build your cake.
  4. simple syrup 1

    simple syrup 2

  5. While the syrup is resting, pit the cherries and lightly toss with ¼ icing sugar. After about 5 minutes give them another toss. This helps get the juices flowing and will give the cherries a nice glazed look.
  6. Once the cakes are completely cooled, use a serrated bread knife to cut off the dome shaped tops, so that your cakes are nice and level.
  7. Brush the cut tops of both cakes with the vanilla simple syrup. Do this a few times until all the syrup has been absorbed into the cakes.
  8. Prepare the whipped cream with an electric hand mixer. In a medium bowl add the 35% cream and ¼ cup icing sugar. Beat on medium speed until stiff peaks are reached.
  9. Place your first cake on to your serving plate or cake stand, cut side down. Place half of the sweetened whipped cream on top of the first cake, and spread it around in an even, thick layer.

  15. On top of the second cake, evenly spread the remaining whipping cream across the top of the cake. Pile the remaining cherries on top of the whipped cream.

  17. Place the cake in the fridge for at least 2 hours, to allow the whipped cream and vanilla syrup to settle into the cake, and to allow the flavours to come together before serving at your next family event.

Chef Notes

  • To save time during the day of serving, bake the cakes the night before, and wrap them tightly with plastic wrap to allow you to hit the ground running the next day.
  • If you have troubles finding cherries, preserved bing cherries are readily available in grocery stores. Simply drain off the syrup and reserve. The cherry syrup is perfect for soaking into the cake.

  8. Cook for 1 minute, stirring constantly with a wooden spoon.
  9. Remove from the heat and transfer to a clean bowl, to start the cooling process.
  10. After about 5 minutes, add the Mirage Margarine and whisk until dissolved completely into the berry mixture.

    blueberry lemon curd how to--8

  12. Transfer the mixture to a glass jar, cover and refrigerate for at least 4 hours before enjoying on scones, muffins or tarts. Keep in the fridge for up to a month.

Chef Notes

  • Using glass jars to store food items that have a higher acidity like lemon, means they won’t take on flavours of the container, or anything else that used to live in the container.
  • If you can’t get your hands on fresh blueberries, just go ahead and use frozen ones. Since they’re picked and frozen at the peak of their season, the quality is generally quite nice.
  • On the other hand if you’ve got a lot of blueberries on hand, go ahead and double the recipe up and make a large batch. Curd is a traditional preserving technique, so in a clean glass jar a batch can last for at least a month, when stored in the fridge.

  9. raspberry chiffon how to--3

  10. Add half of the stiff egg whites to the bowl of batter, and fold until you only see small amounts of egg white.
  11. raspberry chiffon how to--6

  12. Add the remaining egg whites to the batter and fold just until combined.
  13. Add in half of the raspberries to the batter and fold them in.
  14. Pour the batter into a 9″ by 9″ pan, and top off with the remaining raspberries.
  15. Bake until the cake springs back when lightly touched or a skewer inserted into the center comes out clean. This should take about 35 minutes.
  16. Remove the cake from the oven and allow it to rest until completely cool.
  17. Before serving, dust the top of the cake lightly or liberally with icing sugar and you’re ready for an afternoon of tea and coffee with friends and family.
  18. Keep this cake for up to 4 days, wrapped in plastic or in an airtight container.

Chef Notes

  • Coating the inside of the bowl you’re going to use for whipping the egg whites, will allow you to get a fluffier, firmer stiff peak in less time than normal. The acidity helps to allow the protein in the egg stretch and take on air. It’s the same effect you get from adding in cream of tartar.
  • When making a chiffon or any other sponge cake, you don’t want to grease the sides of your pan. The sponge, as it rises, clings to the sides to help gain height and maintain it once it’s removed from the oven. If you grease the pan, you’ll most likely end up with a cake that shrinks once removed from the oven.

The Peanut Butter Cookies You Loved As A Kid

peanut butter cookie hero (3 of 4)


Growing up, cookies were the kind of the snack world. Nothing was better than coming home from school and biting into a fresh baked cookie. One cookie that everyone needs to have on hand is the Peanut Butter Cookie! With just 4 main ingredients it’s the perfect one bowl, one spoon cookie. In less than 10 minutes you could be sitting in front of the oven waiting for these perfectly crunchy cookies, to make their way into your mouth.

Prep Time: 5 Minutes
Cook Time: 12 to 15 minutes

Ingredients

    1 Egg
    226g / 1 cup Peanut butter, crunchy or smooth
    113g / ½ cup Mirage margarine
    400g / 2 cups Granulated sugar
    60g / ½ cup Candy Coated Peanuts, crushed (optional)

Directions

  1. Preheat the oven to 350F (180C).
  2. In a large bowl combine the peanut butter, Mirage margarine, and sugar. Using an electric mixer or wooden spoon, begin creaming the ingredients together, for about 2 minutes.
  3. peanut butter cookie how to (1 of 9)

  8. Allow the cookies to bake for about 12-15 minutes, or until the surface no longer looks wet and the edges are nice and golden.
  9. Remove them from the oven and allow them to rest for at least 20 minutes. As these cookies contain a fair amount of sugar, a hot cookie could really hurt.
  10. To store the cookies, wait until they’re cool and transfer them to an airtight container, and keep them for up to a week. The cookies will start to go softer as they are stored, so if you like them crispy just pop them back in the oven for 2 to 3 minutes.

Chef Tips

  • Use a good quality peanut butter for these perfect little morsels. It makes a difference in terms of texture and flavour. Look for a peanut butter that has peanuts as the first ingredient.

Chefs Note

  • If you’ve got some yellow zucchini, feel free to use that in place of the green. Or if you’re not a fan of the zucchini, try adding in some grated carrot or sweet potato.
