I've been trying to make a dent in the pile of recipe ideas I have torn out of magazines.
S made this lime and ginger cheesecake and although hers didn't look quite as picture perfect it tasted just as delicious.
I baked some cakes but these weren't quite as tasty.
I picked up this recipe on a World War 2 day out at Manor Farm in 2012.
I shall share the recipe because it is an original one from that time period and if anyone needs to provide a donation to a WW2 event at school then it may be useful.
Put 2 cups of All Bran, half cup of golden syrup and 1 and a half cups of milk in a bowl and leave for about 5 minutes. Add 1 egg. Sift in 1 cup of plain flour and 1 tsp bicarbonate of soda and half tsp salt. Mix well and then pour into cake cases. I think I baked 20 cakes with this mix. Cakes were baked at 200c, mine took a bit longer than the 10 minutes quoted in the recipe.
A while back I bought a copy of A Girl Called Jack and decided it was time I actually cooked something from out of it.
This week I made the Carrot, Cumin and Kidney Bean Soup which G took to work on Tuesday. I have to say the colour was awful but he said it was really tasty and his work colleagues all enjoyed dunking a little bread into it too.
Today he took in Simple Spiced Potato Soup pictured below.
