SUNDAY: STEAK FRITES

PASSOVER SUNSHINE CAKE

Sunshine cake, really angel food cake made with whole eggs, is relatively obscure despite being around for more than a century. However, with its light moist texture, golden colour and citrus flavour, it makes an ideal Passover dessert using kosher-for-Passover ingredients, as well as one for Easter (see Variation, this page) and certainly deserves more celebrity.

GLUTEN-FREE STRAWBERRY CRUMBLE

Shredded coconut in the crumble topping adds tropical flair to an otherwise classic recipe. Many people with celiac disease can still consume oats, but to be absolutely sure yours haven't been in contact with gluten from other products, look for bags labelled "pure uncontaminated oats." You'll find them in health food stores or the natural foods aisle of your supermarket.

Slow-Cooker Strawberry Shortcake

Our technique of cooking the perfect cake in a slow cooker uses both the high and low settings, ensuring that the cake stays tender without being too moist. Good-quality parchment paper is on the heavier side, and it will help insulate the cake so that it bakes to a nice light-golden colour.
