Hi, I would like to make Nigella's Mother-In-Law's Madeira Cake but I do not have self-raising flour, only plain flour. I would like to know how many teaspoons of baking powder I should I add to the mixture to make the cake successfully. Thank you. Mary

I would like to make NIgella's wonderful scones, but I live alone and can only eat so much. I want to know if once I cut them out, do I have to bake them in order to freeze them or can I freeze them unbaked and either bake them from frozen or defrosted?

I live in Italy and saw a programme with Nigella that had a prawn and Iceberg lettuce salad with a wasabi and saki dressing. Unfortunately I didn't catch the ingredients and am unable to find it on the website. Could you please let me know where I can find a copy? Many thanks vix592
