Great British Bake Off champion Nadiya Hussain might have moved away from Leeds but the city, and the county, are still in her thoughts – and on her tastebuds.
The former Roundhay resident has revealed her own favourite Yorkshire bake – the Fat Rascal. The huge fruit scone, decorated with a glacé cherry and almond face, is “absolutely delicious” served warm, with butter and jam, she says. “It’s my favourite Yorkshire food but I’ve never made a Fat Rascal,” the mum of three said. “Some things are sacred.”
Nadiya is giving a cooking demonstration at this weekend’s Flavours Food Festival in Barnsley. She is also celebrating the release of book Nadiya’s Bake Me a Festive Story.
