Michele Cranston shares this deliciously easy recipe for lemon posset in "A Simple Table". "Part of me loves this dessert for its wonderful old-fashioned name but I mostly love how stupidly simple it is. It sets into a sublimely silky, creamy, lemony pudding that could be served with crisp almond bread, but for this recipe I’ve decided to celebrate the lemon and garnish it with sugared zest. The zest adds just a little bit of sweet texture, which is really all you need, because the posset is pretty darn close to perfection as it is. Just one quick note: make sure you buy thick, or double, cream and not thickened cream or the result will be disappointing."
Meatloaf is traditionally served with tomato sauce, and leftover meatloaf is great when put in sandwiches. This recipe is a bit fancier if you feel like a special meatloaf for dinner. It looks and tastes like a giant sausage roll! Photograph by Dean Wilmot / Bauersyndication.com.au.
