  • CW18 - my BM instructions say that after you have used the "dough" setting You have to............

    1. Knead and shape the dough into rolls
    2. Place on a greased baking tray
    3. Brush lightly with melted butter
    4. Cover for about 20-25 mins
    5. Allow to rise until double in size and glaze
    6. Bake for about 15-20 mins at 190 degrees cent.

    Hope that helps

    Thanks Helen. I guess a loaf would need longer cooking time though :confused:

    Grrr - just lost a large post as I was interrupted by a phone call from DH 95 yr old grandma - don't all go AAAHHH - think more Nan from Catherine Tate show than sweet ol' lady.

    Anyway, not much to say, except that I'm going to a pampered cheF party tomorrow - has anyone tried/got any products? Website has horrendously expensive products, but you have to buy something don't you? Was thinking of the oil mister as I don't have one, but think it would come in handy.

    Cornflake tart:-
    Base just shortcrust pastry
    For the filling:
    175g seedless raspberry jam
    50g butter
    50g caster sugar
    2tbsp golden syrup
    175g cornflakes


    Chocolate concrete
    100g margarine
    2 eggs
    100g cocoa powder
    1 lb self raising flour
    100g sugar

    melt the margarine and sugar and mix well till it goes syrupy
    add flour and cocoa to the syrup on the pan mix well until its becomes stiff .
    add two beaten eggs and gently mix them in until your mix softens.
    place the mixture into the tray, press into the corners and flatten into the sides of the tin.
    Please in the oven (gas mark 5)and leave for about 30-45 minutes. If the top feel hard take it out to cool. Cut up into slices as when its cool its quite hard to cut. It should be hard on top and moist in the middle.

    Flying Fresian:- Mushrooms:- just chop up and freeze, then when you want to cook them just put straight into the pan, no need to defrost.

    Very proud of myself finished both of the large cushions for the bench so not now just need to put the arms on it then we'll have a lovely pine bench icon_mrgreen.gif

    Going to make Leto (DS2) a little cushion as he's feeling a bit left out because of Brandon (DS1) getting his room done.
    Have to buy toothpaste etc at some point today so will update signature when that's done.

    well off to make salad.

    Thank you thank you thank you xxx

Used some more Courgettes last night in this Courgette Pie, http://forums.moneysavingexpert.com/showthread.html?t=66554&highlight=courgette&page=17 Rosieben - there was a link for it on the front Recipe page but I think it got lost when this Recipe was merged with another existing Thread on Courgettes, can you work your magic to fix it? ... .

    all done, thanks for pointing out the broken link :T

    Phew!! finally caught up with thread, must stay on top this month - always feel really enthusiastic after reading all the tips etc. Have really slipped the last few months but must stick to budget this month - we are going to stay with M&FIL in a few weeks & really want any spare cash for days out with this kids. So.... budget for August is £300. Have already spent £96 of this :eek: so will have to be very careful!!!
