Trialling some new recipes...

We felt like something new and nice to eat so off I went into the kitchen to do some baking. Besides, it was another way of keeping warm in the very cool weather we have had here.

First up, some flapjacks:
I used honey rather than golden syrup, pumpkin and linseeds, coconut, cranberries. They are lovely although I always find them so difficult to cut. We have since cut them all into half so they should last us a while.

A weird recipe is Cloud Bread. Not a bread at all and there are numerous recipes on t'internet. I used the recipe from here
It should have made 8 or 9 but I only got 5, not knowing how much to spoon onto the trays. They rose dramatically in the oven but sank back down once cold. I had planned on using them for cheese on 'toast' but they started to burn quickly. Anyway, we ate them as they were - verdict - edible! They tasted like cold omelette and I don't think I shall make them again.

  1. You really haven't sold the cloud bread to me, think I will pass on that! But the flapjacks are another matter, yum xxxx

    1. Most of those who eat them seem to do so with a sweet topping.

  2. Glad you liked the flapjacks. I've never used honey in them even though the original recipe calls for it.

    1. They are lovely but slightly fragile so syrup might have been better.
