As I have just listed my Buttermilk Pancake recipe, I was thinking about the hero products we all have in our kitchen cupboards.
The products that spring to my mind straight away are:
I buy a carton of this every week now. It's 52p for a carton from Asda (I'm pretty sure Tesco's stock it too). I use it to make cakes (any type of cake), as I think it makes them particularly fluffy and moist.
I also use it in my pancake batter instead of regular milk as it has the same effect.
I pretty much use a splash of this little gem in every casserole, pasta dish or stir fry I ever make. I splash it on cheese on toast or in baked beans. I've never come across anyone who doesn't like this and I would feel lost if I ran out!!
Sweet Chilli Sauce
I'm sure someone out there will tell me it's easy to make this but I do admit I buy it in a bottle! I had some tonight in fact with salmon fillets and brown rice. It just adds a spark to so many savoury dishes and is also a quick cheat's dip to go with crisps or veggie sticks.
I'd love to know what your hero products are! Comment below!
