Hello, goddess lady and team! In the New Orleans coleslaw recipe, by "white cabbage", do you mean Napa cabbage, the kind-of-ruffly kind? Thanks for all you do, Kevin

I made the Chocolate Raspberry Pavlova and there were squeals of joy from the kids! It tasted great but it was flat, i.e. it didn't have the nice fluffy meringue texture I was expecting. Any thoughts about why it sunk after cooling down?

Hi, Thank you very much for the Chocolate Sheet Cake recipe. I was wondering if this cake freezes well? I make treats for my children's school lunch on the weekends and pop them in the freezer for when I need them. I love that you can convert to cup measurements! Thank you.

I have a glut of rather large marrows and would like to use these as a substitute for courgettes in Flora's Courgette Cake. Obviously I have to peel it because the skin is too thick to be edible, but could you tell me if it would work as well as the normal courgettes would? Thanks

Hi Nigella and Team! I have just got my copy of How to be a Domestic Goddess from a UK based online store and it turns out it is the American Version that I have received. I have since realised that there is a white cover copy that is in metric and black cover copy that is in imperial. I was wondering if this is the same for all of Nigella's other books? Is there a way to differentiate metric vs imperial if the website does not state it? I would really appreciate your help, as I would like to expand my collection of Nigella books! Kind regards, Amelia

Hi! I would like to use the Buttermilk Birthday Cake recipe for my dad's 70th. He loves coffee cake and I wondered if I might be able to adapt the cake to add the coffee flavour without making the mix too runny? Can you advise? Thanks.
The Buttermilk Birthday Cake is a great recipe and I would like to make a chocolate version of it. Would you suggest adding cocoa powder or melted chocolate? What quantity of cocoa powder or melted chocolate would you advise and would I then have to reduce the quantity of any other ingredients in the recipe? Many thanks, Deane-Mae
