Day 26 of 28 - Absolute Indulgence!
Today began as any other day, except there was a glimmer of sunshine. I stuck a washing on, looked out the window and the rain began again - typical!
Went exploring in the kitchen and decided that the time had come to use up the last dregs of the can of 'scootie' cream, so had a quick browse online for an easy recipe. As you can see by the photo, I found one! :)
Approved Food found 3.5kg bags of white bread and roll mix for 99p and Marvel milk powder at 75p. An equally quick check on the supermarket comparison site showed the milk powder to be a phenomenal saving, I have placed a small order for next week and hope everything is still available by the time they despatch my order. £15 well spent, in my opinion, even if it did mean adding in some more cheesecake mix, potatoes, 4kg sugar and a couple of fajita kits to make it up to the minimum order of £15.
Having finished off the last grains from a tub of salt while preparing the bread dough ingredients, I thought there must be something 'waste not, want not' that I could do with the empty container, so here's how you can do similar:
|Ingredients for epic choc cake|
5 tablespoons white granulated sugar
1/2 tsp baking powder
1 egg (I used 2 small bantam eggs)
2 1/2 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder
3 1/2 tablespoons milk (I used Marvel)
splash of vanilla extract - didn't have any, so this was omitted
3 1/2 tablespoons oil
5 1/2 tablespoons Guinness
|Wow! Guinness chocolate cake|
|The ingredients are sufficient for 4 servings|
PS: Next - what to do with an empty Guinness bottle and yes, I saved the plastic cap off the cream can because these make excellent little jelly moulds. :)
