Chit Chat / Bermaline bread
« on: August 31, 2023, 09:01:57 am »
Hubby was over helping our elderly friend today, as he does each week. He came home with 3 Bermaline bread tins. They are different and apparently the bread was cooked so that it had a flat top. It used malt and wheaten grain and was quite heavy. I've been reading up about it and have become quite fascinated. I THINK it was around the 1930's or so.
I was wondering if anyone had heard of it? DH is going to clean them up and I plan to try and make some. I'm doing lots of googling and reading.

Chit Chat / Curious Information
« on: February 24, 2023, 05:50:50 am »
I just had a look at who was on the forum and what they were looking at. I was the only member. There were 5 people registering to become members, interesting as we rarely get new members. What surprised me was the number of people (20-30) who were looking at the profile of others. Some members had 3 or 4 others looking at their profile. I wonder why? Do people use the forum as a source of emails to send spam to?

300g SR flour
330g brown sugar ( I reduced this a bit)
1 cup coarsely grated zucchini
1 cup grated carrot
2 teaspoons cinnamon
½ teaspoon nutmeg
250ml vegetable or canola oil
4 eggs
50g walnuts
1. Turn the oven to 180*C. Prepare a loaf tin.
2.Blitz the carrot and set aside.
3. Blitz the zucchini and set aside.
4. Place flour, brown sugar, zucchini, carrot, walnuts, cinnamon and nutmeg into a large bowl.
5. Place butterfly into the bowl. Add oil and eggs. Mix on speed 4 until very well combined.
6. Pour this into the flour mixture.
7. Stir to combine and place into the prepared loaf tin.

This can be iced with a cream cheese icing but I don't think it really needs it. I found this in a Coles magazine many years ago.

Cakes / Macadamia and Cranberry Cookies

Macadamia and Cranberry Cookies
These a re as  little different to most biscuits as they are supposed to be flat!
185g unsalted butter
105g macadamias
220g brown sugar ( I used a bit less)
110g caster sugar
225g SR flour
75g plain flour
1 egg
1 egg yolk
100g cranberries
Preheat oven to 180* and prepare at least 2 trays.
Toast the macadamias.
Place butter in bowl and melt at 50*, speed 1 until done.
Add flours, sugars, egg and egg yolk (you may like to give them a light beat first)
Knead until mixture comes together.
Add in nuts and cranberries. Mix in by hand or on knead.
Roll into balls (about 1 tablespoon) and place on trays about 6cm apart. Flatten a little and bake for around 12 minutes. Leave to cool on the trays as they are delicate.

This is based on a recipe in WW Christmas Cakes and Puddings. They are very nice. I may try them with pistachios and cranberries to make them more Christmassy.

Orange Biscuits
These are very tasty. I’ve decided to pop recipes in here as well as on “what are you cooking.” It makes the recipe so much easier to find.

It isn’t a thermomix recipe but is made in a food processor.

I melted the butter for this and then added all the other ingredients. It made it so easy. I combined them on  ^^. It only took a short while. Next time I may reduce the sugar a bit.

Cakes / Cherry and Almond Cake
« on: August 10, 2021, 05:09:32 am »
Cherry and Almond Cake
1 1/4 cups SR flour
100g almonds- I used unblanched ones
2/3 cup sugar
3 eggs
3/4 cup oil
1 tablespoon grated orange rind
1/3-½ cup freshly squeezed orange juice
1½ cups frozen cherries
Put the almonds into the bowl and blitz. Set aside. No need to wash the bowl. I left mine about the size of a pin head and it gave a slight crunch to the cake.
Halve the frozen cherries.
Preheat oven to160* and prepare a loaf tin. (24cm x 13cm x6cm)
Place butterfly into the bowl. Beat eggs, oil, sugar, orange rind and juice for about 1 minute or until thickened slightly. Not over speed 4.
Remove butterfly and add flour, almonds and fold through with a spatula.
Fold halved cherries through  and bake for about 1-1½ hours.

My photo isn't the best and doesn't do the cake justice. It is very nice.
I found this recipe in a pile I really must go through. I think it was from Creative Gourmet.
