No problems girls, I do very little baking and even less converting these days so it was nice to see if I could still do it!

Have you asked the kids Gayle?  Then again, it’s generally not just your own - their partners would have a say as well.  I don’t think there’s much in my house that my girls would want but if kids are just setting up home there would be more chance they’d like some help.

Good morning everyone, blue skies here with the temperature rising over the next few days.
I started doing 20 minute walks at the weekend so the question is - can I keep it up!

Well done Michele, I imagine your aunt was quite worried about not being able to help her GD out with the storage, good to hear a solution has been found.
That must have been hard to do Margaret, I find that as soon as I get rid of something I need it!

That’s different cookie.  I’ve never seen a peanut plant before.

Nice spread Chookie, nothing better than eating, talking and having a few drinks with old friends.

Cakes / Carrot, zucchini & date muffins

I’ve converted this recipe from Best Recipes http://www.bestrecipes.com.au/recipe/Carrot-Zucchini-and-Date-Muffins-L3613.html

240g self raising flour
1/2 tsp bicarbonate of soda
1 tsp cinnamon
100g light brown sugar
240g pitted dates
340g carrots peeled and cut into 5 cm pieces
150g zucchini, ends removed and cut into 5 cm pieces
125g milk
90g butter, melted
2 eggs, lightly beaten

Preheat oven to 200 degrees celcius fan forced.  Line a 12 hole muffin tray with paper liners and spray them wth canola oil.  Do the same to a 21 x 11cm loaf tin or if you have 2 muffin trays there will be enough mixture left to fill 6 of them.

Firstly prepare the veggies & dates, there is no need to clean the bowl during any of the following steps.

Chop the carrots for 4 sec/speed 5, remove and place in a medium sized bowl.
Chop the zucchini for 1 sec/speed 6, remove and add to the carrots.
Chop the dates for 6 sec/speed 6, remove and add to the veggies. Make sure there are no stray seeds in the dates, I always find at least 1 in a packet of dates.

Place flour, bicarb and cinnamon into TM bowl and mix for 3 sec/speed 7.

Add sugar, zucchini, carrot & dates to bowl. Knead 10 seconds.

Add milk, butter and eggs to bowl.  Knead 10 seconds.

3/4 fill the muffin tins and tip the remaining mixture into either more muffin holes or a small loaf tin.

Bake the muffins for 17 minutes, remove them from the tin and place on a wire rack to cool completely.

Bake the thin loaf for 22 mins.  You can call these carrot, zucchini & date fingers!

These are really nice when cold, split and spread with butter.

I converted this muffin recipe today, I love anything with date in them.  I’m having one with a cuppa right now, it’s really nice split and buttered.

Special Diets / Re: Creamy, Dreamy No-Fuss Icecream (Dairy Free)
« on: January 14, 2018, 09:14:23 am »
I had some cashews in the freezer I wanted to use up, found this recipe and added a tablespoon of Tia Maria to see if it made a difference to the hardness of the ice-cream.  It was perfectly scoopable and it gave the ice-cream a nice flavour too.
