This week I decided to bake...absolutely nothing! I'm basking in our brief and fleeting summer and if it's not sizzling on a BBQ then I don't want to know. That being said on Thursday Ciaran surprised me with home made Pasties De Nata! I can't believe he managed to bake them before I did (after I vowed to attempt them myself back in May) - not least of all because he's never baked before in his life!
These were amazing - there's cinnamon in the pastry crust, a rich custard in the middle and orange caramel on top. You want these in your life, trust me.
He used this Jamie Oliver recipe from Jamie's 30 Minute Meals...
Plain flour (for dusting)
Pre heat oven to 200C.
These would be divine enjoyed with a long cocktail in the back garden as the hot sun finally dips below the trees!
