Hi, I have tried Nigella's Easy Sticky Toffee Pudding and it did not work as there was too much liquid. The recipe says pour over 500 ml boiling water but surely this is far too much? Kind regards Jane.
I was planning on making the Easy Sticky Toffee Pudding in advance for a party so that I don't have to worry about assembling and cooking it in the evening. Is this possible or will the sauce dry out when it is re-heated? Thanks, IzzyBelle.

I recently tried making the Blonde Mocha Layer Cake but the sponges both sank and then cracked, and the icing did not set properly. I followed the recipe to the letter with the one exception that I used half fat creme fraiche in the icing. What else could have gone wrong? Thanks.

I made Nigella's Coconut Macaroons today and they came out bone dry with no moisture and collapsed, it was just dried coconut. I used shredded coconut which was very dry itself with no moisture. I cooked them for 16 mins. Please help I am dying to get these to work, as I am spending a fortune on store-bought ones!

Hi, I wanted to check if any sugar is added to the cream mixture for Nigella's Meringue Gelato Cake, or does the sweetness all come from the meringue?

Dear Nigella team, I have a question about celery. In many recipes you need to use a stick of celery. I'm not sure what is meant by this. In Holland you have two types of celery, one is like a herb, small sticks with grean leaves, one is much bigger, it is mainly light green sticks, with a bit of green leaves sometimes. Which one is the one that you need to use in the recipes? Thank you very much!

I made the Mexican Lasagne from 'Nigella Kitchen'. I followed the ingredients and instructions exactly and unfortunately, I had did not have the results that I expected. The cooked finished lasagne was very watery and my tortillas were just mush (and yes I had drained the black beans and sweetcorn). Please could you explain were I could have gone wrong with this recipe? Should I exclude the 400ml of water from the ingredients?
