Pudding

Sunday is our weigh day on the Wii, and we usually treat ourselves to a pudding of some kind. Being Mother's Day and not having planned to go out anywhere, I thawed some cooking apples and damsons and made us a fruit and ginger sponge:


We shall eat it over three nights. First night was with yoghurt, second and third with custard. Yum!
On the subject of baking, cooking from scratch, Rhonda has linked to a rather long article on how our food, even simple things we might eat, has been treated in a way that doesn't always have an understandable label of its treatment or ingredient!

I suggest you have a drink snd hold the biscuit whilst you read about it here

  1. Oh dear I just ate a biscuit! I know we are being quietly poisoned. I just wish the government would enforce the food industry to be more honest. Processed food is so cheap and some families are living on it. The pudding looks amazing:)

    1. Sad and frightening at the same time. It is a worry though if you can't even trust fresh fruit and vegetables.

  2. I am appalled by that article. We grow our own veg mostly and I think we need to do more. It worries me that companies are allowed to cheat and replace traditional "nasties" with nicer sounding alternatives some of which do not have to have the E number labelling.

    1. What to do though when they are pulling the rug from beneath us taking away our ability to make an informed decision.

  3. Thank you for that link, I've read other books by Joanna Blythman she has been "outing" the secrets of the food industry for many years. I've now ordered this new one from the library also added Frugality Hub Uk to my reading list after noticing it on your sidebar. Good job I popped in to read your post!

    1. Articles like hers just don't get enough advertising.

    2. Then I deleted Frugality Hub from my reading list when I realised it was full of ads!

    1. I think we still have around 12 lbs or so to use though some will have to be with yogurt to cut calories!
