Three-ingredient recipes (3)

Thanks to Sandy Hellig for this recipe based on Vanessa Sampson's list of three ingredients: yoghurt, tinned prunes and porridge oats. 

  • Melt a knob of butter and add 100g of oats and 100g of soft brown sugar. Cook slowly until crunchy, then set aside and cool.
  • Place a few prunes in the bottom of a bowl or individual glasses.
  • Stir a bit of the prune juice gently into the yoghurt to give a ripple effect. Spoon on top of the prunes.
  • Finish with crunchy oaty topping.

Book reviews

Amanda Whatley recommends Lambs of God by Marele Day: "Very funny and clever story about nuns, island life, isolation, justice and a little bit of retribution. Very humorous in a slightly dark way. :-)"

Ruth Marrison recommends Read my Lips by Teri Brown: "It’s all about a deaf teenager working her way through school. It’s a book that opens up to how people with hearing loss cope day to day with life and communicating with people."

Adrienne Beavis recommends Where the Crawdads Sing by Delia Owens: "It's beautifully written and set in the North Carolina marshes. It's, an ode to the natural world, a coming-of-age story and a murder mystery."

Sue Floyd Rayfield recommends The Island by Victoria Hislop: "It's very well written - emotional, intriguing and full of history."
