I’ve fancied making taquitos for a while now and when I eventually got around to it I thought they were really good. If you don’t know what taquitos are, they’re basically a tortilla wrap that’s filled with tasty ingredients, wrapped up like a cigar and then fried in a little oil to create a crispy tube that encases its filling.
These lemon curd cakes were created because I’d been in TK Maxx a while ago and I picked up a mini sponge cake baking tray for the bargain price of £1 which bakes mini round sponge cakes (about the size of a macaron half). I was dying to try making mini victoria sponges, but I didn’t want to fill them with the usual standard whipped cream and strawberry jam. However, one of the staple jams I was brought up with is lemon curd and as a result there’s always a jar of it in my fridge.
Halloumi seems to divide people into two camps. There are those who love its firm, chewy, creamy texture and others who think its ‘squeaky’ texture is an abomination within the fromage world. I fall into the former congregation. Although halloumi contains lactose, it is low FODMAP at a serving of 50g, although you can increase this portion to 100g if you’re okay with digesting lactose.
