Baking etc...

Welcome to my new follower Rae. Early this morning (after yet another sleepless night until 4am when I finally 'dropped off'), I decided to have a baking morning. First on the list was a hard core full fat gingerbread cake.


After that I made some pork and chicken pasties.


With the leftover pastry I made some wartime cookies. Check out my new Wartime Recipe page to see how I made them. Then a little crumble mix to sit on top of two individual gooseberry crumbles.


Yesterday, I tackled my yoghurt nemesis and decided to try making it slightly differently. This time I allowed the milk to boil, then left it to cool to the correct temperature before adding yoghurt and following the recipe as per usual. I also decided to trial this new way using whole milk and then semi skimmed.


9pm last night found me unravelling said jar from its towels and cool bag and hey, the whole fat milk version is solid. I could actually tip the jar on its side and it stayed put. We had some after lunch today with cinnamon and honey drizzled on top - lovely.

  3. Mmmm everything looks lovely, I often make these "biscuits" although I call then Chorley cakes, which they resemble. Another interesting page to look at too.

    1. These were very thin mind you, probably 1/2 cm when cooked. I hadn't thought about them being similar to Chorley Cakes, maybe the person who wrote in was from that area.
