I have made the Chilli Jam and it tastes divine but is too liquid. What can I do to make it set?
I have made the Chilli Jam and it still tastes of vinegar. Does it need to be boiled for longer? Thanks.
I live in Mumbai and have no access to Jam Sugar or Pectin. I really want to make the chilli jam - is there anything else I can use? Poojitrix.
How long does the Chilli Jam last for?

Hi! Thanks for the Old-Fashioned Chocolate Cake recipe. I tried this at home and it tastes delicious but while it was baking my cake burst out of the tin - chocolate-like lava! This made my cake look a bit odd, however I managed to make the cake looks better with the icing. But I would like to know why this happened. Yours thankfully.
I made Nigella's Chocolate Fudge Cake yesterday and used the 20cm tins I use for Devil's Food Cake. But there was too much batter, I got 9 cupcakes out of the batter, and a lovely spill on the oven floor! I have enjoyed the cake today, as well as the scrubbing, but wonder where I went wrong?! With thanks, Wanitamaria.

Hi, I have made Nigella's Yogurt Pot Cake and it turns out well and tastes good. What I have noticed is that in parts of the cake and at the bottom (after turned out from tin), there are patches of 'denser' cake compared to the rest of the cake. I was wondering what it is I am doing wrong? Thanks
