Well our month starts on the 25th -so Im off with 4 NSDs in a row -I will need to pick up a couple of bits tomorrow..as yet it should just be a bit more :-
milk, lettuce, peppers, cucumber and onions - unless of course I see any bargains that I can use .
Im planning a super frugal month as I have lots of meat and stuff in the freezer -so I would like to get that run down.
Right -those 2 recipes that were asked for are:-lemon cakes
This made 12 buns -
100g SR flour
50g ground almonds -you can add more if you have them to use up
rind and juice of 1 lemon -or more if you like mmmmmmm
These need to be left for a day or 2 (if possible ) as they get moister as they stand orange and poppyseed cake
Pre-heat oven 160f/gas3
grease and base line a loaf tin -20x10cm3tbs marmalade
150g pot natural yoghurt
175g golden caster sugar
200g SR flour
1/2tsp baking powder
175g soft butter
zest 1 orange
2tsp poppy seeds -toasted gently
melt the marmalade over a low heat -or soften in the micro
cool slightly -then stir in the yoghurt
throw everything else (except the poppy seeds)into a large bowl and beat with an electric hand whisk (or whallop with a good ol wooden spoon)
beat in the yoghurt mix and poppy seeds
tip into the prepared tin and bake for 1hr -1hr 10 mins -or until a skewer comes out clean -keep an eye on it and if it is colouring to quickly -cover with greaseproof
I made this in bun cases instead in the remoska -its a runny mix -so don't use papers on their own -guess how I found this out? *some very strange shaped buns happened that day* :rotfl:...this is another 1 that I think is much better if left to stand for a day - they go really moist -it feels likes you could squeeze liquid out .... Im thinking of trying this recipe but with lemoncurd nomnomnomFlat-Eric -the courgette teabread/muffin recipe is on the list of recipes allready -its addictive -I even have hubbies mates making it :rotfl:
I think you should be able to get poppy seeds in the supermarkets by now -if not the health food shops will have them....
I now have another 3 courgettes off the plants -they are growing quicker than I can use them -if only the tomatoes would catch up :rolleyes:. I have quite a few french and runner beans stashed in the freezer -and plenty more on their way -I love fresh runner beans mmmmmm -
right I had better get off and make a cuppa -hope everyone has a good month
