I followed everything for the Chocohotopots (Feast p256) that I saw Nigella make on the television (and then even viewed it on youtube). I used all purpose flour, and instead of the choc chips, i used Lindt dark choc - extra fine - and cooking butter. Is normal sugar fine, or should I use caster sugar? I have a Samsung grill cum convection microwave oven, but I can only set it to Watts. I set it to 180W,for around 15mins or so. Since it was my first time I thought I would try it with just one ramekin filled with batter. After i closed the oven window, I saw the batter rising up and down inside the ramekin, which is why i took the ramekin out with 10-11mins. To my dismay, there was no gooey choc oozing out, and as I ate it hot, it was more like a cake. it was getting harder as I time went by Please help me, on where I have gone wrong. Leena

Hi, since I'm a Muslim & most of the meringue recipes that I've compiled require white white vinegar, red wine vinegar or balsamic vinegar, which are non-halal products. Is it possible to replace them with apple cider vinegar instead?

Hello Nigella and Team, my query is in regard to conversion of recipes. I am in Australia and wondering if there are differences between the U.K. weights and measures compared with the Australian ones? Thank you, MoyraMac.
