Now it's 3pm on said Saturday afternoon and I'm starting to feel a bit peckish, so I pulled up 2 of my most trusty recipes for quick and easy make treats and enlisting Erin to help, we set upon making:
Chocolate Cornflake Cakes
I dont need to put the recipe here, you just melt the chocolate and add in Cornflakes until the chocolate is used up.
Erin and I added sprinkles to our cakes before we put them in the fridge, but Damian preferred no sprinkles (must be a boy thing)
Then we made some Simple Jammy Biscuits.
Again so quick and easy to make and absoloutely delicious. I used this recipe
200g Self raising flour
100g Caster Sugar
100g Butter (I use Stork)
1 lightly beaten egg
Jam (I use seedless raspberry)
- Heat oven to 190C/fan 170C/gas 5. Rub the flour, sugar and butter together until the mixture resembles breadcrumbs. Alternatively, you can do this in the food processor. Add enough egg to bring the mixture together to form a stiff dough.
- Flour your hands and shape the dough into a tube, about 5cm in diameter. Cut into 2cm-thick slices and place on a large baking sheet. Space them out as the mixture will spread when baking.
- Make a small indentation in the middle of each slice with the end of a wooden spoon, and drop a tsp of jam in the centre. Bake for 10-15 mins until slightly risen and just golden. Cool on a wire rack.
