Apple Crumble Sponge Biscuits

This is the link to these biscuits/cakes.
I used a Granny Smith apple in them as I didn't have 2 red apples. I also used brown sugar as I didn't have Demerara sugar. I chopped the apple and folded it in carefully with a spatula.
I didn't use 2 soup spoons, I used  my hands to roll them into balls and squashed them slightly before I put the topping onto them.

Place all the ingredients, except the mango, into the bowl. Speed 4, 20-30 seconds or until well combined,
Stir through the chopped mango with a spatula.
Bake in the prepared pan about 40-60 minutes or until cooked.
This may be served as a dessert with extra yoghurt. I used it as a cake.

This isn't a large cake. I found the recipe in an old magazine during one of my clean ups.

This was all that was left when I went to photograph it.

Chit Chat / Secret Santa for 2018
« on: November 05, 2018, 01:57:20 am »
Well it is getting close to that time of the year again.
If anyone is interested in doing SS again this year please indicate in this post. The rules would be the same as every other year.
I have SS knowledge that we may be a few less this year so I was wondering if we should have a minimum number to run it? Say 5. I don't mind organising it for any number but if we only have 3 we would be able to guess fairly easily.
Please give me your opinion on that too. 

Secret Santa for 2018

Main Dishes / Bacon and Cheese Impossible Pie
« on: October 28, 2018, 06:42:13 am »
Bacon and Cheese Impossible Pie
Serves 6
3 bacon rashers
˝ cup plain flour
1˝ cups milk
4 eggs
60g butter, melted
310g corn kernels
3/4 cup grated cheese, plus 1/4 extra to put on the top.
any other ingredients you may like to use. I often leave out the corn and add mini tomatoes, halved, or wilt some spinach and add that.
Preheat oven to 1800.
Grease a 24cm quiche dish.
I cook my bacon in the microwave. I give it 2 minutes on high between 2 pieces of paper towel.
Cut into cubic centimetre dice.
Grate cheese if not done and set aside.
Melt butter either in microwave or thermomix bowl.
Whisk milk, eggs, flour and melted butter. About 10 seconds on speed 5/6.
Sprinkle corn, bacon and cheese into quiche plate. (and any other ingredients you have decided to add.)
Carefully pour the egg mixture over. Sprinkle with parsley and extra cheese
Bake until set. 30-50 minutes.
Serve with a salad.
This forms its own pastry base. It is delicious cold and the base is more obvious when it is eaten cold.
I copied it from the Recipes mnagazine which no longer exists. I also thermofied it.

Cakes / Custard Fruit Cake
« on: October 28, 2018, 06:14:22 am »
Custard Fruit Cake
250g butter
500g flour
250g sugar
2 teaspoons carb soda
1 teaspoon mixed spice
˝ teaspoon ground cloves
˝ teaspoon ground nutmeg
1kg dried fruits (the recipe actually requests Australian dried fruits!)
426 ml milk
 2 Australian eggs!!!
˝ teaspoon vanilla essence
˝ teaspoon almond essence
Prepare a large square or round tin by lining base and sides with paper,
Set oven to moderate.
Place flour and spices into bowl.
Add butter and mix speed 3/4 for up to 10 seconds. Simply rub the butter into the flour and spices.
Add sugar and combine, speed 3, 5 seconds.
Remove and place in a large bowl.
Add fruit to this dry mix and combine.
Place the milk and eggs into the bowl. Make a custard by cooking at 90 0, Speed 3/4 for about 7 minutes. If this needs to be thicker add extra time.
Add essences and combine, speed 3, 5 seconds.
Add the custard mixture to the dry mixture and combine by hand.
Turn into the prepared cake tin.(I used a 9 inch square tin).
The original recipe stated to cook for 3 hours, however I found this to be far too much and cooked for around 1 hour.
It is suggested that you not cut this cake for a week.
I found this recipe when I was looking through some recipes IU had collected over 30 years ago. It stated that the recipe comes from Australian Prize Winning Recipes by Margaret Fulton and Ted Moloney. It won 100 pounds in a competition. It was listed as a new technique in cake making. The measurements were in Imperial measure, but I have converted them. A lady called Pat Smith bought the cookbook for one shilling at a garden fete in Sussex about 12 years before this was printed. She said she had no idea she would end up in Australia. I appear to have cut it out of an old copy of The Sunday Times.

A Tasty Wholemeal Loaf
This is from Amanda’s blog. It’s quick to rise and is tasty. I only made one loaf, not 2 as the recipe makes.

Chit Chat / Cook Key and Cooki-doo. Recipe Comments
« on: September 25, 2018, 03:59:10 am »
I recently decided to interact with Thermomix again and buy a Cook key and the recipes that are then available from Cooki-doo. You get a 6 month subscription of Cooki-doo with the cook key. Naturally being Thermomix you then have to pay $49/year for it. After some fighting with them (I was overcharged for the Cook key!) I hope I have sorted it.
I know there are a few others who also have it so I thought it may be an idea to share what we have cooked and a brief comment on it. Not necessarily a review though. ( I checked with Judy and CC)

Put dates,hazelnuts, flour, seeds, cinnamon, salt,coconut oil, syrup, egg and vanilla into the bowl. Knead until well combined.
Stir through cacao nibs with a spatula.
Roll teaspoon size balls using wet hands. Press down with your hand and mark with a fork if you wish.

Cool on the tray.

This recipe is based on one from the WW Food magazine. I have altered a couple of things and thermofied it.

Chit Chat / Cookidoo
« on: September 15, 2018, 01:47:42 pm »
I have started a 30 day free trial of Cookidoo.  I’m not sure why but I decided to have a peek at it. I’m going to try several of the recipes from it and see what they are like in the 30 days. I don’t have any problems converting recipes as I go but wanted a sticky beak of it.
I think after much reading I have sorted it and the cook key out.  I don’t think I would be bothered with the cook key as it simply enables you to synch recipes onto your thermomix and use the screen to instruct you. 
I will keep you informed.
