  • Waffle Berry Pie sounds interesting. Please could you elaborate or even post the recipe?
    Thanks
    SL

    Not sure where the recipe originates from so I can't take credit but my OH got it from a woman in his work and I have made a few changes. Its super easy and great for sundays as we pop it in oven while eating and then its ready when weve finished.

    1 pack of waffles
    200g of white choclate
    400g frozen raspberries
    1 oz caster sugar
    1tblsp s/r flour (not sure if it actually needs to be S/R but thats what i used!)
    300ml creme fraiche
    4 eggs.

    Chop waffles into bitesize pieces and layer half in the bottom of a casserole.

    Chop white choc into small chunks and sprinkle half over top

    put half rasperries in aswell and then repeat.

    Mix creme fraiche, sugar, flour and eggs until smooth then pour over top. I usually leave it stand for about 5-10 mins so it can seep through.

    Bake in oven on 180 for fan ovens for 30-35 mins (centre should be set) and then serve straight away dusted with icing sugar and with a scoop of ice cream or on its own.

    Sounds a bit strange but it is really yummy! Get whinged at by my sister if I dont make often enough!:rotfl:

  • Hello,
    I have been reading and not posting, sorry. Will try harder in October. I am here until the end of September too.

    The waffle berry pudding is a pampered chef recipe. It's really nice. I always use a pampered chef recipe to make brownies. You melt the butter and stir in the other ingredients so it is quick and easy. Mmmmm all this pudding talk is making me hungry.

    I bought DH the Lorraine pascal cookery book and I would really recommend it. It is full of recipes that I would actually make and they don't need loads of ingredients. Last night we had sweet and sour pork balls with peanut rice (made using sausages) it was soooo nice and not expensive to make either.

    Off to add up spends. Smoked haddock (ys of course!) defrosting for dinner.

    Xx

    Hi everyone, been MIA a while. My daughter has been having a friend staying for the last month/5 weeks, so it has really pushed the budget, plus i bought loads of extras for my daughter to stock her up, as she left for Uni Friday. She phoned me up nearly in tears, saying she had spent £13 in tesco, but didn't really have any meals to eat so ended up buying a takeaway - i tried teaching her, but she did not want to know, now shes asked for a shopping list and menu, so i will do that for her. Maybe i should start off a thread and get some wonderful ideas from you clever people. She wants to spend £15 to start with, as she needs to reign it in, rising to £20, which is really doable, but being a student sharing a kitchen, she just wants quick and easy at the mo. Anyway, i might do that, as it might encourage her to EAT. p.s. she has kindly left me her friend to provide for (thanks for that), whom i barely know, so not a happy bunny. Anyway im opting out of September and will join October on 1st. See you there

    Thank you rosieben :A

    No GC spends today although used a few bits from my second purse which I will tot up and settle up at the end of the week.

    Had some rubbish news today regarding my best friend in the whole wide world who I've known for 40 years and love to pieces. Feeling very low tonight. Sorry - not GC-related I know, but sometimes, just sometimes your faith gets tested to the absolute limits :(
