Thatís good Chookie.  Today I ordered a half tray for my steam oven and some telescopic racks.  My steam oven is just a little high or Iím a little short but I think they will help to bring out food without me feeling like it might drop on me!!!  Winnings also have them out for half price which is always great!

Your so right Chooky, a hair cut always makes me feel good and Iím glad you could get one with the lockdown.

Judy glad your hair is growing back.  Good luck with your blood tests!

How exciting Chookie.  Bet you canít wait for the ovens to arrive and you can start playing.  Is your daughter-in-law still happy with her VZUG?  Iím happy with mine but disappointed that now only Winningís Appliances are allowed to see them.  Adelaide doesnít have a Winnings but thankfully because of covid they have been having regular cooking demos online.

Sorry to hear that you guys are back in lockdown.  Hope itís for too long.  Stay well! X

Thatís what he told me!  He wanted me to make bread for him but I didnít want to waste a loaf if it ended up being too Smokey.

Chicken curry & focaccia.  Sounds a strange combination but Wayne wants to cook it in the BBQ as an experiment!

Feel for all you guys in lockdown.    We have been so lucky here and fingers crossed this problem clears for us everywhere.

Must be pastie making day today!  I was lazy though so instead of lots of small ones made 4 large ones.  Each one will be fine for the two of us.  Had some pastry over so opened a jar of preserved apples and made two sml apple pies!

Cakes / Sticky Pear Cake
« on: May 28, 2021, 12:25:40 pm »
I have been making this pear cake for ages now after finding the recipe on Recipe Community.  Itís beautifully light and can also be made in muffin tins to become individual desserts!  Lovely served with cream or custard!

This is the recipe for the Pear cake I brought today!  You could also make it in muffin pan to serve as indivual desserts as itís lovely warm!

PEAR GINGER CAKE
 
140g golden syrup
100grams brown sugar
125g butter diced
250g self raising flour
1 teaspoon bicarb soda
1 tablespoon ground ginger
310g full cream milk
1 large egg
2 pears (peeled, cored & diced) you can also use tinned pears.  Today I just used 1 very large pear.

Melt butter, golden syrup & sugar on 90c - 5 mins - speed 2

Add dry ingredients, milk & egg.  Mix speed 4 - 4 to 5 secs ( until the dry flour is just combined.  Donít be tempted to over mix, as this will keep it light & fluffy.)

Fold in pear with spatula

Line tin/tins

Bake 180c for approx 60 mins or until cooked

Cool in tin for 10 mins, then cool on a wire rack until cold.

Yes, itís from the very, very old Barossa Cook Book.  I made it using mixed fruit as thatís all I had and I wanted to try the cake.  Next time I think I will just use sultanas.

Just mushrooms on toast!

Have been making eggplant Kusundi and preserving pears all afternoon.  Also have two buckets of sliced green tomatoes draining for an Italian green tomato preserve.  It takes 4 days before bottling but worth the wait.
