    Quite a few of us have Remoska cookers so thought it might be useful to share recipes that we have tried - especially easy ones for the motorhome that don't need any special equipment(y)
    We used up some stale bread with this bread pudding recipe that we made up & it cooked well & tasted good.
    Mr Womble's Bread Pudding Recipe
    IMG_20151101_190730919.jpg
    400g bread
    400ml milk
    300g dried fruit
    50g melted butter
    2 eggs
    sugar to sprinkle on top
    Just break up the bread (we made this at home so just a few seconds in the food processor) & then add the milk so it all softens up. Add the fruit, melted butter & beaten eggs then squish it all together with your hands. Pop mixture into the greased baking tin (line if not non-stick) & cook in the Remoska for about 50 minutes or until as brown as you prefer. Leave to cool in the tin but remember to sprinkle some sugar over the top whilst still warm.
    We used a mixture of sultanas, raisins & dates which with the sugar on top made the pudding sweet enough for us but if you have a sweet tooth you might want to add some to the recipe. We tried to use the minimum amount of butter to keep this as low fat as possible but again more can be added if you prefer a more moist & richer pudding. If you like spices then a little cinnamon enhances the flavours. We are planning to try modifying this recipe using grated apple so more like an apple cake next so have fun, experiment & share your recipes on here please:)

    Found this information online and thought it might be useful to new or prospective Remoska owners: -
    Using a Remoska – the basics

    The Remoska cooks between 190 and 220 degrees. Something like between 190C/345F Gas mark 5 and 220C/425F Gas Mark 6.

    The Remoska is not a slow cooker. On the contrary, some food will cook faster than in a normal oven.

    Simply place your ingredients in the pan, according to the recipe, i.e drizzle of oil and await to obtain great results. It couldn’t be easier.

    It is possible to prepare a whole meal in the Remoska. The Remoska works just like an oven. You can also make toasted sandwiches, or cook ready meals in foil containers.

    You may place your food directly in the pan or in ovenproof dishes to fit in the Remoska.

    You can cook pre-prepared food from frozen. You can defrost food in the Remoska.

    Food, including cakes are cooked from cold. You can use a Remoska to re-heat food. The Remoska may also be used as a ‘Bain Marie’.

    Wrap portions of food in very lightly greased foil, ideal if you are on a fat free diet – fish particularly remains moist and full of flavour.

    You can bake in a Remoska. Puff pastry rises like a dream and sponge cakes stay moist.

    The Remoska probably cooks the best roast chicken you have ever tasted.

    The Remoska is extremely economical to use, easy to clean – the Teflon® pan is non-stick so will rinse out – not even worth putting in the dishwasher, though it’s quite safe to do so.

    Be aware
    As with any hot electrical appliance – be safe.

    If you need to remove the lid to stir, place it away from you upside down, remember, it is the lid that does the cooking – it will be very hot.

    When in use, the Remoska pan will also be very hot; avoid contact and keep away from plastic or flammable materials as the hot pan will damage them.

    Do not heat the Remoska whilst it is empty. As with all Teflon-lined cooking pans, excess heating of an empty pan will eventually damage the Teflon lining.

    Never immerse the lid in water.

    Cleaning
    To clean the lid, switch off, unplug from the mains and when cool wipe the lid and the glass with a damp cloth. Use ordinary washing up liquid on a cloth if necessary.

    Operating
    The Standard Remoska in the UK uses 470w, The Grand Remoska 650w on 240v at 50Hz (although this is being harmonised with Europe and is more likely to be 230v).

    You can use the Remoska on caravan sites, campsites, and in Europe if the electricity supply is suitable.

    It is, without doubt, considerably cheaper to run than a traditional oven.

    Done the scones very nice, mixture was a bit runny though so couldn't make into individual ones had a cake type one which was just as nice sliced :)
    We bought the recipe book from Lakeland and have done a great Thai curry, one pan chicken and rice, and a very nice chocolate cake, without the frosting :)

    Mr Wombles variation on the bread pudding recipe above using apple worked well - same again just using less milk (@200ml) & 300g grated apple made this: IMG_20151110_242116836.jpg Took just 50 minutes to cook in the Remoska.

    Had a 'use today' poussin yesterday, stuck a load of veg in the heated remoska, spuds, parsnips, leeks and carrots plus bird lid on and gave it a shake every now and then took about 50 minutes, delish.
    Tells you not to heat an empty remoska so i put a little water in till pan is really hot and then pour it away. or a teaspoonful of oil if appropriate. makes great goose fat roasties for 12 at Christmas :)

    Chicken on Veg.
    Clean/peel and chop any root veg you fancy, carrot, parsnip, turnip, potato, onion, garlic lay it all in base of the Remoska tin, season.
    Take the skin off 4-6 chicken thighs and lay them, bone side down, on top of the veg.
    You can add a small amount of water/stock or small tin of chopped tomatoes, not too much liquid as the veg make a certain amount.
    Put the lid on and plug in & turn on, cook for about 3/4 to 1 hour. Check the veg is cooked and the chicken.
    I use a slotted spoon to lift out the veg and chick then I thicken the juices with gravy granules. Eat & enjoy.

    Carrot cake, Fruit cake, Madiera cake, Toad in the Hole.

    The 'Duck legs in Remoska' on their website is mine.
    Basically most recipes are OK in the Remoska. The Remoska cooks at about 190c so any recipe around that sort of temp is ok.

    Hi all Remoska owners!
    I thought I would resurrect this thread as we were given a Remoska Oven included as part of the deal on our new moho. Whilst trying not to blow our own trumpet too hard,I and OH are very discerning cooks and even prefer in most cases to cook our own meals than eat out, or buy ready mades, or take aways. Good examples of why we dont like bought in food is that you normally end up counting the number of ingredients i.e prawns in a fish pie, or chicken pieces in a curry, and we inevitably end up saying something like" that could have been so much better with some fresh herbs, or better spicing, or less sugar etc. There is nothing better than sourcing your own ingredients for any meal, because you then know what has gone into it, and will be in most cases better for you,I hope you agree.
    Anyway back to The Remoska Oven,you dont get many recipes with it so we purchased a recipe book from flea bay, and are not impressed with the recipes listed as they seem way out even for us.
    Some such as Fish & Spring Green Pie, Sausage & Lamb Kidney Casserole, Potato Goulash with lager, Spinach Burgers, Green Flageolet Bean Ring, Seafood Bread & Butter Pudding! and last but not least, Campers Eggs & Bacon baked in Croissants, Yuk! to all of them.
    Please tell us what you cook ina Ramoska Oven while away in your mohos, as I dont think we would get many takers if we invited guests over for dinner, looking at these recipes, and I cant blame em either!
    This gadget may well end up on Flea Bay at this rate.

    I make all sorts of mainly savoury, dishes in mine. Great for doing any kind of chicken. Fish cooks very quickly in it. Baked potatoes, sausage,bacon. It would even warm a FB pie!!! Basically I just make it up as I go along. Gets hot & can cook quickly so not really a slow cooker unless you cover the top of whatever you are cooking with foil to stop it burning.
    I use mine for so many things that I now just take this and a toaster for our long stays. Have dispensed with BBQ as too heavy. Suggest you get the rack which fits in it for “grilling”stuff. Also watch where you put the lid when lifted off,it gets very hot and can easily burn work surfaces. I have never used the oven in our van, don’t need to, although it is a useful place for transporting Remoska. I have the recipe books but haven’t used them. The more you use it the more you will find you can do with it. And no, I am not paid by Lakeland to endorse it!!!

    Thanks Madmag, I get what you say, throw the recipe book in the bin, and do your own thing eh?
    I Have heard that certain ladies in a certain MH Club rave about their Remoskas, we have the basic one as it was free I suppose, the deeper pan one would be better for a whole joint of meat. I suppose the timing of things is the hardest to get used to, but may give it whirl here at home to see what it can do before taking it with us. We couldn't however do without our Cadac or Real Charcoal BBQ, you just cant beat that lovely Charcoal Taste or Mussels smoked lid on, with pre soaked oak chips, done in minutes.....yum! God I need some sun and holiday, you can come over if you like?(y)
    Best wishes
    Les & TinaL

    Mine is just the Standard Remoska. I think the pan depth is the same on standard and grand but it is possible to buy a shallow pan which I did. The deep is great for potatoes etc but I use the shallow one when just have small amount in or have bacon etc on the rack. I have to admit ( whispered voice!!!) I have bought a shiny new remoska, they were doing a special edition one, this is now my motorhome one and stays in all the time. The older one is in constant use at home. We moved from a house with an Aga to having to have all electric cooking. As there are just the 2 of us I use the remoska rather than putting the main oven on. It’s cheaper as well as quicker.
    I suppose you could try putting some smoke chips under the rack in theRemoska, it should give the same effect, useful for small quantities when you are travelling.
    En route to Spain for the winter, I will try a few more recipes when I get there and post any ideas that I think you may find useful.
