A few years ago I posted an early, work-in-progress version of this Bakewell Flapjack recipe. Having refined the process over the years I thought it was time to post this revised version online. Unfortunately I don’t have new photos to accompany it but it’s easy enough to follow. The quantities mentioned below produce a big …
Combining the best elements of my two favourite sweet treats, flapjack and Bakewell tart, this recipe is one I make on regular basis. Flapjack is ideal for taking on hikes as a snack and this variation elevates it to a new level! Credit to LaurenJC, whose recipe I’ve based mine on with just a few tweaks. The quantities below …
Seems I only use this blog for dumping recipes! Here’s a new one for banana bread chocolate chip muffins. This makes a nice alternative to a normal banana bread loaf. Ingredients 120g self-raising flour (or plain flour with 1 teaspoon of baking powder) Pinch of ground cinnamon 2 extra-ripe bananas mashed up 75g light brown …
I know it’s lame to return to blogging with such a pathetic post, particularly as so much has happened since my last entry on here but be grateful faithful readers…or more likely spam bots!
Here’s my quick and easy Cheese and Broccoli Bake Recipe which will probably feed two people, or one chunky monkey like myself.
Update:After cooking this many times I’ve revised this recipe somewhat. Gone are the potatoes and the quantities are a little revised. It now easily caters for 2 hungry people and probably more like 3 with normal appetites!
- Approximately 200g of fresh broccoli
- 2 mushrooms
- 120g of butter
- 80g of plain flour
- 350ml of milk
- 4 eggs
- 300g of cheese
- Prepare and steam the broccoli.
- Melt the butter on medium heat in a saucepan large enough to fit all the broccoli in there later.
- Add the flour, mix well and keep stirring until bubbly.
- Gradually add the milk stir until well mixed.
- Bring to a boil and season with a bit of salt and pepper if you fancy. I never add salt when cooking but that’s just me.
- Turn off heat and get to work beating those eggs.
- Mix in the eggs.
- Now gradually add the cheese. I usually save some back to put on last for a nice cheese top layer.
- Finally combine it together with the broccoli and whatever other veg you decided to sneak in there and mix it up good and proper.
- Slop it in a casserole dish, adding the cheese you saved back on top if you want, and bung in the oven at 325°F/165°C/gas mark 3 for about 30 to 40 minutes.
Leave it to cool and dish it out. Sorted!
Banana cake is very popular around these parts. Maybe it’s because it sounds healthy when actually it’s not. But anyway, here’s the recipe the little one uses.
- 4oz of butter or margarine
- 6oz sugar
- 2 eggs
- 2 big bananas
- 8oz wholemeal self-raising flour
- Mash the bananas with a sturdy fork
- Cream the butter and sugar together, and mix in the eggs
- Mix together the two yellow sludges you now have, and mix in the flour
- Scrape into a cake tin and bake for about 40 minutes at Gas Mark 4/180°C/350°F
- Turn the oven down to Gas Mark 2/150°C/300°F and leave in for another 30 minutes
