... keep having chocolate/ice-cream lollies for afters. It's no good for your diet.
I made some cake instead. I know - it's no good for your diet but if I cut it into small enough pieces then you've got the taste and only a few calories. And I know how much fat and sugar has gone into each cake. My simple cake recipe is 4/2/2, an egg and some milk.
eg. 4 oz flour, 2 oz butter, 2 oz sugar
8 oz flour, 4 oz butter, 4 oz flour - the ratio is the same.
At the front is a lemon cake tray bake so I added the juice and zest of a lemon.
The second cake in the middle used some brown and muscavado sugar, a teaspoon of mixed spice and 4 oz sultanas. At the back you can see my experiment with crackers.
I used 1 cup of wholemeal bread flour, a knob of melted butter, a pinch of salt and a pinch of sugar all mixed and kneaded together for 10 minutes. Who needs the gym to get muscles in your arms? I let the dough rest in the fridge for about 20 minutes then rolled it out very, very and more very thin. It was baked in the oven at 240 degrees C for about 5 minutes. I think I read about the recipe from the Keep it Simple blog (see the side bar). Frugal Queen also had a go at making crackers.
I shall make these again and experiment more with different flours and toppings. A couple of these will suffice for afters and I know what's in them!
