We had a lot of feedback after last month’s newsletter about biscuits spreading over the tray. So many of you sent email saying something similar had happened to you! A further cause can be the difference between using butter and margarine. Margarine has a higher water content than butter and in some cases you may need to reduce the amount used. We are here to help when things like this happen, so please email and Neville is only too happy to help!
Back to School
There are a number of recipes on the recipe club that are great for school lunches.
Fruit logs are easy to make, they freeze if needed and cost a fraction of the commercial ones, plus you can ensure the quality of the ingredients that go into them.
Crackers are another great thing to put into lunch boxes. Along with a little container of humus they make an awesome morning snack. I always have to have crackers in the cupboard for when our grand children come to visit as it’s the first thing they ask for when they walk in the door! Parmesan is their favourite flavour but you can put any herb or spice in you like.
Finally, any of the savoury pastry recipes can be used to make mini quiches or pies that are always well received by everyone.
January's New Recipes!
White Chocolate & Berry Creme Brulee:can be made ahead of time making it ideal for a special occasion. The berries blend beautifully with the white chocolate, but it is not as sweet as you would expect!
Carrot Cake:We have had so many requests for a carrot cake. Our version uses grated apple, carrot and spices making for a moist cake that keeps well. Topped with the traditional cream cheese icing this is an awesome family favourite.
