Did you know that your slow cooker can help you with dessert this Christmas?
A Christmas pudding is a traditional in many households, and they can be prepared both quickly and easily in a slow cooker. Here's our recipe below:
- 225g / 8oz raisins
- 225g / 8oz sultanas
- 225g / 8oz currants
- 225g / 8oz fresh breadcrumbs (whole-wheat or white)
- 50g / 2oz almonds – blanched and finely chopped
- 1 apple
- Grated rind and juice of 1 lemon
- 2 small beaten eggs
- 250g / 9oz moist brown sugar
- 225g / 8oz shredded suet
- 50g / 2oz mixed peel
- 50g / 2oz plain flour (whole-wheat or white)
- 1 rounded teaspoon mixed spice
- 3 tablespoons of sherry or brandy
- Grease the bowls and place a circle of greaseproof paper in the bottom of each.
- In a large bowl mix all the ingredients thoroughly.
- Fill the basins to 1cm below the rim. Do not pack the mixture in too tightly.
- Cover with a piece of greaseproof paper pleated in the middle, then a piece of foil.
- Tuck the foil securely under the rim of the basin and put the basins into the slow cooker.
- Put enough boiling water in the slow cooker to reach half way up the pudding filled basin and set the puddings to cook.
Half way through the cooking time top the slow cooker up with boiling water.
If you like you're Christmas pudding to be light - Cook for approximately 16-23 hours.
If you like you're Christmas pudding to be darker - Cook for approximately 23 hours.
But don’t worry - here are some fang–tastic tips that won’t take too long to achieve.
Unique last-minute costumes
Spider – What gives everyone the creeps? Little Incy Wincy, of course! Dress yourself up as a scary arachnid and prepare to terrify! All you need is an all-black outfit and some old tights stuffed with socks to make your eight legs. To hold your legs up, attach them loosely to your wrists using some dark string. Simple.
Pirate – Channeling a scary Jack Sparrow is easy to do and all the basics you need are a bandanna, an eye patch (make yours with some black card and elastic) and an old white shirt.
Make your shirt super scary by adding some fake blood. Don’t forget eye liner to draw on some menacing scars and a beard.
Delicious DIY treats to rustle up in no time!
These easy to make last-minute Halloween recipe ideas have minimal preparation time and look terrifyingly good.
The Bloody Finger Sandwich – These savoury snacks are a real winner with the kids. Spread strawberry or raspberry jam on a piece of white bread and roll in to the shape of a finger. Finish off your gory creation with an almond flake - it looks like a creepy finger nail!
Owl cake – Follow a quick and easy sponge recipe to make a basic chocolate cake. Take two Oreo biscuits, take one biscuit off, leaving the white centre showing to make oversized owl eyes. Use brown chocolate buttons for the pupils and finish off with yellow Smarties stuck in the sponge sideways to make a cute little beak.
For extra speedy mixing that takes the fuss out of baking tasks and saves valuable time, try our Morphy Richards Accents Folding Stand Mixer.
Happy trick or treating!
Which? is the best kettle and toaster set on the market? Why, it’s the Morphy Richards Chroma kettle and toaster set of course! And you don’t just have to take our word for it: the Which? team said that this is “the best toaster [they have] tested in the past two years”.
What’s more, according to the testers, “it’s rare for a kettle AND toaster of the same set to both be awarded a best buy”, but with its stylish design and unbeatable functionality it’s easy to understand why Chroma has outstripped its competitors.
The Morphy Richards Two Slice Chroma Toaster has a number of ‘winning’ design features which make it stand out from the crowd. The sophisticated white casing, chrome trimming, attractive base and non-slip feet make the Chroma toaster an eye-catching addition to any kitchen.
The variable browning function makes perfect toast every time, as each slice is evenly browned. The variable width feature means you can toast all your favourite treats, such as crumpets, teacakes, tasty bagels and more.
For those with limited time, the Chroma has a defrost function which allows bread to be toasted directly from the freezer, means you can enjoy toast whenever you want. The reheat button is also useful if you find yourself getting distracted – a handy feature for people always on the go.
The Morphy Richards Chroma Toaster easily tidied away thanks to the handy cord storage and is perfect for even small kitchens, plus the removable crumb tray provides fuss-free cleaning.
Just like the Chroma toaster, the Morphy Richards Chroma kettle also won over the Which? testing panel, due to its sleek appearance and ergonomic features.
Its large 1.5 litre capacity can make up to 6 cups of your favourite hot drink and the rapid boil feature means you won’t be waiting long too quench your thirst. The dual water window allows you to clearly see how much water is in the kettle, preventing the risk of over filling.
Available in a range of colours; the striking design and range of user-friendly features make the Morphy Richard Chroma Toaster and Kettle set a winning combination!
With the brighter weather and the approach of the summer body season, we all turn to lighter meals and healthier food choices, so it's the perfect chance to get innovative in the kitchen. And what better way to get creative than with homemade smoothies and mocktails?
Finding a blender that is reliable, attractive and good value for money can be tricky and that’s where the Morphy Richards Easy Blend Blender comes in handy.
The Easy Blend is great for the health-conscious, as its versatility means that it’s possible to make homemade milkshakes, smoothies and even health drinks that are fit for the gym. It’s easy to create drinks on the go as the blender is easy to clean, and the ice crushing blades means that you can throw in frozen fruit, ice and mix powder to create tasty health drinks. Take a look at some of smoothie recipes to get your taste buds tingling…
Orange and Berry Smoothie
Blend together 2 oranges that have been cut into chunks, with the peel and pith removed, with a couple of handfuls of frozen blueberries and strawberries. Once smooth, serve in a glass.
Throw 1 peeled banana and 1 peeled mango into the blender with the pulp of 3 passion fruits, add 200ml of orange juice, and puree until smooth.
Honey Breakfast Smoothie
After peeling a banana, add it to the blender with one large spoonful of honey. Pour half a pot of plain yoghurt in, and blend then serve.
If you’re finding it hard to entertain the kids this weekend, let alone get them interested in healthy fruit-packed drinks, then it’s time to get your hands on Morphy Richards’ Soda Sparkle. This product has the ability to turn tap water into flavourful fizzy drinks that are healthy and delicious. If your child has fussy taste buds, never fear! There’s so many flavours to pick from such as apple, strawberry, cranberry and even cola.
It's also a great opportunity for a picnic. What goes in the picnic basket is always a family debate, but the classic sandwiches, crisps and sweet snacks are always at the top of the list. And even if the sun doesn’t keep shining this weekend, there’s no better way to cap off a perfect weekend than with a refreshing smoothie.
We believe that when you start with great ingredients you finish with the best flavours and given that water is an essential ingredient for many recipes and the majority of hot drinks it makes sense to use BRITA filtration to help you achieve great results.
BRITA MAXTRA filtration reduces limescale, chlorine,metals and other impurities from your tap water. to help ensure not only the taste, but also the smell and appearance of both your hot drinks and cooked food is enhanced whilst helping your appliance last longer by preventing limescale build up.
Best to stay away from such a contentious area that is riddled with pitfalls –besides BRITA makes safe drinking water taste and look better but it is not a purification system –that is a completely different kettle of fish.
Hard water is water that contains a higher-than-normal proportion of mineral salts – at the latest count, nearly half (47.22%) of the counties in the UK are in hard to very hard water areas. This means that nearly half of UK counties are consuming water that contains above 200mg/l in calcium carbonate equivalent (Source: British Water). You can check whether you’re living in a hard water area by looking at this handy graphic.
Generally speaking, the most prominent hard water areas within the UK are in the South East of the country, however hard water areas within the UK range from Bristol and areas within the South West of the country all the way up to areas within Yorkshire.
Filtering is most important in these areas, so you can be confident that you’re drinking water that has reduced impurities. The best way to ensure your hot drinks and cooked food is tasting as delicious as possible is to change your BRITA filter cartridges at regular intervals which will also help prevent limescale build ups in your machine.
Additional cartridges are available to buy on our website – we recommend that you change the cartridge in your Hot Water Dispenser at least once every month.
BRITA MAXTRA cartridges are also 100% recyclable, just visit their website to find out more about your nearest recycling location.
One of the Redefine Hot Water Dispenser’s many advantages is that it’s perfect for bringing a whole meal together without the need to bring multiple pans to the boil. With its 3 litre capacity, it can fill a pan full of BRITA filtered water at the perfect temperature so that you can cook pasta, rice, vegetables and much more; just quickly change the temperature for different pans.
To get you started, here is a recipe to inspire your next Sunday roast that you and your family can enjoy over the weekend. If you’re feeling inspired, then make sure to share your creations on our Facebook page.
Amazing roast veg, with honey, herbs and balsamic
Freshly ground black pepper
1 kg potatoes, peeled
750 g carrots, peeled
500 g beets, scrubbed
½ bunch fresh rosemary, leaves picked
½ bulb garlic, broken into cloves, unpeeled
Extra virgin olive oil
1 tablespoon runny honey
Good-quality balsamic vinegar
Bring three pans of salted water to the boil. Cut any large potatoes in half and leave any small ones whole. Place the potatoes in one of the pans and parboil for 5 to 10 minutes, or until half cooked. Drain the potatoes, then leave them to steam dry. Return the potatoes to the hot pan and shake it around to chuff up the edges. Repeat with the carrots and beets but do not shake them around after leaving them to steam dry.
Scatter the potatoes with the rosemary, half the garlic cloves, a drizzle of oil, and season with salt and pepper, then spread them out evenly in a roasting tray. Toss the carrots with the honey, a lug of oil and season well with salt and pepper, then add them to the tray, spooning over any remaining juices. Toss the beetroot with a lug of balsamic and oil, and season well with salt and pepper, then add them to the tray too. Scatter over the remaining garlic cloves and roast all the veg in the hot oven for about 20 to 30 minutes, giving them a jiggle every so often, or until everything is crispy, golden and delicious. Keep an eye on them and rotate the tray for even cooking.

If you feel overwhelmed by the idea of large scale makeovers, never fear, as there are plenty of quick and easy tips and tricks that will give a room a fresh look, without the high price tag.
To give rooms a bit of summer refreshment, and an organised new look, it’s always good to pick a colour scheme that will give your rooms a universal theme. Take a look at our guide to colour schemes that are perfect to give rooms a boost.
The possibilities are endless when considering which blue hue to use in a room. A North facing room can be brightened up with a host of light, bright, blue accessories, whilst navy coloured pieces can offer a touch of sophistication or even create a nautical theme.
An easy and affordable way to brighten up a kitchen is to accessorise with some key blue appliances. The Morphy Richards Cyan Traditional Kettle and Toaster add a touch of vibrancy and elegance to a kitchen, no matter what the style.
Pretty In Pink
Pink doesn’t have to look girly if you don’t want it to, and picking a shade that you like can easily change a room’s ambiance with a few simple products. You can give a room a sultry edge with a deep pink sofa or chair, whilst a room can be refreshed with pastel pink accessories, such as photo frames or painted side tables.
If you’d like it to always be summer in your home, then pick some key pieces that add a vibrant burst of yellow into a room. If you have a neutral colour scheme, or a room painted in a dark shade, then pick some pieces of furniture such as a yellow table or chair, yellow cookware or even just a couple of vases of sunflowers to give it a lift.
The Morphy Richards Large Yellow Storage Canister and Yellow Roll Top Bread Bin are fun and modern accessories for the kitchen that can fit into any room style, and don’t have to break the bank!

What is more important to your morning routine a kettle or a toaster and why?
Our Accents range of kettles and toasters is all about injecting style and life into your kitchen, and summer is the perfect time to give your room a lift.
Pastel colours are one of this year’s big interior design trends and to celebrate, we’ve brought together two new collections to keep you one step of the curve.
The Accents Sage Green Collection
Green shades are set to be a big focus this summer, bringing a sense of nature into your home. With longer days and hot weather on the horizon, a fresh looking kitchen with accents of sage could be the perfect complement to your family summer.
All of our sage kettles and toasters are available on our website, including the Accents Sage Green Plastic 2 Slice Toaster, Accents Sage Green Jug Kettle, Accents Sage Green Traditional Kettle and the Accents Sage Green 4 Slice Toaster.
The Accents Barley Collection
Earthy tones are making a massive comeback in the home and to celebrate, we've introduced a brand new barley range of kettle and toasters to our Accents range.
Combining a choice of two styles with modern functional features, a matching kettle and toaster set could be your ticket to a coordinated kitchen look.
The Accents Sage range includes the Accents Barley Plastic 2 Slice Toaster, Accents Barley Jug Kettle, Accents Barley Traditional Kettle and the Accents Barley 4 Slice Toaster.

We are also delighted to say that a new colour will be inducted into our Colour Boutique range in the coming weeks; make sure to like our Facebook page to be the first person to know.
What colour do you think it could be?
This week has been the hottest of the year so far, and with the unpredictable nature of British weather we can’t guarantee that it will get any hotter! With that in mind, we believe everyone should be making the most of the sun, donning their best flip flops and venturing into the garden for a good old barbecue.
Ensuring you grill your food thoroughly is pivotal to the success of any barbecue, so it takes a great deal of time and attention. This often means other parts of the preparation can get neglected or rushed, which is where we can help. Morphy Richards food preparation items, as well as our slow cookers can do the hard work for you, and more importantly help you to prepare delicious food and drink every time.
Slow Cooking Ribs
If you fancy some tasty BBQ ribs, then plan ahead and get your Slow Cooker in on the action! Simply pop some pork ribs and a good dose of barbecue sauce into the slow cooker, add a couple of pork stock cubes and coriander and then let the slow cooker do the hard work for you! When they’ve been in there for 8 hours, take them out, add them onto the barbecue and serve.
If you’re still struggling for space on your grill, you can place your corn in the cob in the slow cooker and save room for the burgers and sausages. Add with melted butter and salt and pepper and leave for 4 hours, then finish on the grill.
You could even make a round of refreshing smoothies for the whole family as the perfect accompaniment! The Morphy Richards Hand Blender is your dream appliance; simply find some fresh fruit, add in with any other ingredients and hey presto – fruity goodness for all!
If any of these products take your fancy, then they are all available on our website.
