Slow-cooker butternut squash and ginger soup
This is my favourite soup to make as I always have a butternut squash around (because they last for so long it's perfect back-up food) and it really is so easy to do. The ginger adds spice and lovely flavour, perfect for a warming Autumn or Winter lunch.
Sticky toffee pudding mug cake
This mug cake produces a lovely, light sponge. Using date nectar rather than sugar, not only is it healthier, but it has a gorgeous sticky toffee flavour. I use Beloved date nectar click here which is widely available in the supermarkets.
