Hi! For Instant Chocolate Mousse can I use whipping cream instead of double cream ? If yes what is the quantity that should be used. Thanks.
I am looking forward to making Nigella's Salted Caramel sauce recipe but we don't have double cream in NZ, I was wondering what I would need to alter in this recipe to account for this?
I have a recipe using sour cream for tartlets. I am worried there is a risk the sour cream will curdle in the oven during the cooking time. Can I substitute creme fraiche or will this affect the flavour? Thanks!
Can you please tell me a substitute for double cream for the No-Churn Pomegranate Ice Cream?

Hi, I have made Nigella's Chocolate Key Lime Pie on a number of occasions and it is always a big hit with my dinner guests. I was thinking of using the recipe to make mini pies which I think would work. I have a 12-cup dessert pan with loose bottom bases and 3 inch diameter cups. How many cheesecakes do you think one quantity of the recipe would make please. Thanks

I live in Australia and have not ever been able to find clementines for Nigella's Clementine Cake. May I substitute another citrus fruit, and, if yes, which one, how many and how long should I cook them for? I look forward to receiving your reply. With thanks, Joanna
