Step By Step

Preheat the oven to 200ºC/gas mark 6.

Grease 8 ramekins with the melted butter. Sprinkle 1 tablespoon of the cocoa powder inside each one, coating the bottom and sides evenly. Discard any excess cocoa.

Place the bananas and Nutella in a food processor or blender and blitz to a smooth texture. Transfer to a large mixing bowl and set aside.

In a large, clean dry bowl, whisk the egg whites until they have formed soft peaks. Add the caster sugar and whisk again for about 1 minute.

Using a flexible spatula, fold half the egg whites into the banana and chocolate mixture. Once combined, very gently fold in the rest.

Divide the mixture equally between the ramekins, then place in the oven and bake for 15 minutes until risen.

Sprinkle the top with icing sugar if you wish and serve immediately.

My Mother’s LasagneLasagne di Mamma

This recipe has been handed down in the D’Acampo family for many generations, though I call it ‘Lasagne di Mamma’ because my mother taught it to my sister and me when we were about  11 years old . It's a great tradition that my wife will pass on to our own children. Allowing the dish to rest for a good 10 minutes before serving allows the layers to firm up slightly and become easier to cut neatly.

Spiedini di AgnelloSkewered Marinated Lamb with Rosemary & Mint

Often people have this misconception that you can only make meat skewers in the summer and cooked on a BBQ – this is not the case.  Make sure once the skewers are ready to be cooked that your griddle pan is very very hot to enable the meat not to get stuck to the pan.  Use sirloin steak if you prefer and if you don’t like mushrooms substitute it with shallot onions.

Pennette gratinate al salmone affumicato, fontina e piselliPasta Bake with Smoked Salmon, Fontina & Peas

This is a fantastic way to use smoked salmon, and many people who don’t generally like fsh – such as my wife – love this recipe. If the béchamel and pasta are hot you can just pop the dish under the grill until the cheese melts, as I’ve done here. If you want to make it ahead, prepare up to the end of step 4 then reheat the dish in a preheated oven (200°C/gas mark 6) for 20–25 minutes....

Bucatini al pesto sicilianoBucatini with Sicilian Pesto

Classic pesto is a specialty of Liguria, in northwestern Italy. However, Sicilians have their own equally delicious, lesser-known version – just a few additional ingredients take it in an entirely new and exciting direction. In this recipe I’ve used bucatini pasta, which is basically a thicker version of spaghetti with a hole all the way through, but of course pasta of any shape will be fine.

Dolce con pere e bananePear & Banana Sweet Bread

My wife often used to go out and buy small brioches or sweet breads as a snack for the kids, until I created this recipe; now my pear and banana bread is baked at least once every ten days in the D’Acampo household. The process is so quick and easy but the effect is very wow. It is absolutely delicious and never lasts more than twenty-four hours in our house. We’ve eaten it for breakfast, snacks...
