What's my recipe book?


We know what it's like when you're browsing a site with as many recipes as ours. You find a brilliant recipe, want to make it again, but can't remember how you found it!

But we've solved the problem. Now, by clicking 'Save this recipe' or 'I cooked this' on any of our recipes, they'll be saved and grouped into your personal online recipe book. All you have to do is log in with your Facebook account to see them. When you click either of these buttons it will also tell your friends on Facebook what you've been cooking or saving so they too can give our quick and easy recipes a go (but you can turn this off at any time by visiting your 'My recipe book' page).

A light, delicate Italian treat made with strawberries and sweet Marsala wine.


  • 225g/8oz strawberries, hulled
  • 30ml/2tbsp icing sugar
  • 4 large Lion Quality egg yolks
  • 65g/2.5floz Marsala or medium sherry
  • Drinking chocolate to dust
  • Thin biscuits to serve

Save three of the egg whites from separating the eggs for making our delicious Pavlovas. Placed in a rigid container and covered, egg whites can be stored in the fridge for up to 1 week or frozen for up to 3 months for meringue making at a later date. Thaw overnight in the fridge before using.


  1. Rinse the strawberries in cold water, then cut each in half. Place in a small bowl and toss in the icing sugar. Divide between four tall glasses and set aside.
  2. Place the egg yolks and sugar in a large heatproof bowl and whist until the eggs are thick and fluffy. Gradually whisk in the Marsala, the mixture will become runny. Place the bowl over a pan of simmering water and cook for 10-15 mins, whisking all the time until the mixture is really thick and creamy – it should be thick enough to leave an 's' shape on the top of the mixture when the whisk heads are lifted.
  3. Divide the mixture between the glasses spooning it over the strawberries, dust with drinking chocolate and serve immediately with thin biscuits.
