Hi, I have baked the Roxanne's Millionaire's Shortbread in Domestic Goddess (p240). it seemed to have turned out very well, but when i tried to cut it the caramel was too soft and the chocolate too hard hence it was very messy. I have tasted it and it is delicious and would like to try it again. I followed the recipe exactly, the only thing i did do was make it in a foil tin.

I have alot of damson pulp left from making damson wine. I have had a go at turning it into jam, but am not sure how much sugar and water to use. The batch I tried has not really set and has lost a lot of flavour, or it may be just too sweet. Any help would be great. Many thanks

Hi! I have seen Nigella using butter in cakes. Can I use vegetable oil instead of butter? Will there be any change in taste or texture of the cake. Kindly clear my doubt.
