Rachel Allen recipe search inducing stats

Given that I have been off line a bit lately and not blogged for 4 days, my stats are bubbling away nicely. It would seem the Rachel factor is at it again. All UK based visitors searching for Rachel Allen's recipes and this surge began as her programme ended on BBC1 yesterday. Now if you, dear recipe searching reader, were to let me know which recipe from yesterdays programme you wanted, I might oblige in the same way I did last week with the smoked salmon pate recipe. (You know bibliocook for someone who is not a fan of Rachels I am being very patient don't you think?) And I can't bear the thought of food at the moment too - but for services to the blogosphere...

You're benefiting from the Rachel Allen effect too? It's amazing! I've even gotten emails from people who have obviously thought that I AM her instead of just writing about her. That reminds me, I need to get back to the person who sent her - via me - a mail looking for a chicken casserole recipe. I might just be nice too...

Can anyone help me? I'm looking for the fudge recipe from Rachel Allen I can't find it anywhere!!

I have tried many times to find many of Rachel's recipes on-line.
Still no luck, if anyone has found that Fudge recipe please post it!
I remember some of it, only the condenced milk and the cooling process, all fudge recipes are different anyway. Try cream, milk or the condenced milk and use other recipes to make it crumble like she did on her program. I made her Vanilla Melting Moments with out her recipe but used the icing sugar and they tasted fine.
Good luck everyone!!! as its very much needed

Has anyone found the fudge recipe.... still looking

1. Milk maid - 375 ml or gm

2. golden caster sugar - 400 gm (I think this sweet is too much so, I used only 100 gm)

3. Butter 100 gm

4. Venila - 1 Tsp

Method : 1. Melt the butter then add milk maid and G.C. Sugar, cook for 10 to 15 minutes.

2. fill the sink with some water. and place this pan on and mix this mixture with some minutes. This will make the mixture hard quickly.

3. Then put this mixture on the grees proof paper.

4. You have to cut the shape with in 3 to minutes otherwise this mixture will very hard.

the pear and almond tart - no pastry is on the bbc site. here is the link:

if that doesnt work here is the ingredients and method:

175g/6oz icing sugar, plus extra for dusting
50g/2oz plain flour
100g/4oz ground almonds
1 lemon, zest only
5 free-range egg whites
175g/6oz butter, melted, plus extra butter for greasing
2 ripe pears, peeled, cored and quartered, then cut into long slices about 5mm/┬╝in thick
25g/1oz flaked almonds

1. Preheat the oven to 200C/400F/Gas 6.
2. Lightly grease the sides of a 23cm/9in tart tin with a removable bottom and place a disc of greaseproof paper on the base. If you prefer, you can serve this tart on the tart tin base,
in which case do not use a disc of paper.
3. Sieve the icing sugar and flour into a clean bowl and stir in the ground almonds and
lemon zest.
4. Place the free-range egg whites into another clean bowl. Whisk the egg whites for 30 seconds, until just frothy.
5. Add the whisked egg whites and warm melted butter to the bowl containing the dry ingredients. Mix the ingredients until the Ingredients combine and become smooth. Then pour the mixture into the prepared tart tin.
6. Arrange the pieces of pear on the top of the mixture and sprinkle the flaked almonds onto the top of the pears.
7. Transfer the tin to the oven and bake for 15 minutes, then turn down the heat of the oven to 180C/350F/Gas 4 and cook for a further ten minutes or until the mixture has risen and has a pale golden colour. The filling should feel firm to the touch in the centre when cooked through. Remove the tin from the oven and allow it to sit in the tin for a few minutes before turning it out onto a wire rack.
8. To serve, place the tart on a clean plate and dust with icing sugar.

Instead of pears I sometimes use 100g/4oz raspberries or blackberries (either
fresh or frozen) for the topping. Alternatively, I use 50g/2oz pine nuts instead of
fruit. You can also make this with 100g/4oz peach or nectarine slices, which is
particularly nice in the summer!
