* 2 cups flour
* 1 stick butter
* 1 cup of water
* 1 tsp baking soda
* 1 cup of sugar
* 1 tsp salt
* 1 cup of brown sugar
* Lemon juice
* 4 large eggs
* 2 bottles wine
* 2 cups of dried fruit
Sample the wine to check quality. Take a large bowl, check the wine again. To be sure it is of the highest quality, pour one level cup and
drink. Repeat. Turn on the electric mixer. Beat one cup of butter in a large fluffy bowl. Add one teaspoon of sugar. Beat again. At this
point it’s best to make sure the wine is still OK. Try another cup… Just in case. Turn off the mixerer thingy. Break 2 eggs and add to the
bowl and chuck in the cup of dried fruit.
Pick the frigging fruit up off floor. Mix on the turner.. If the fried druit gets stuck in the beaterers just pry it loose with a drewscriver. Sample the wine to check for tonsisticity. Next, sift two cups of salt. Or something. Check the wine. Now shift the lemon juice and strain your nuts. Add one table. Add a spoon of sugar, or some fink. Whatever you can find. Greash the oven. Turn the cake tin 360 degrees and try not to fall over. Don’t forget to beat off the turner.
Finally, throw the bowl through the window. Finish the wine and wipe counter with the cat. Go to Woollies and buy cake.
I do not do spinach. Jik Jik Jik. Way Way to green for me. And I do know how to cook it. I was taught by my Italian mother-in-law to do it in all kinds of exotic and inspiring ways. But it still tastes green. Jik.
Then came Martine’s Christmas salad. I am now addicted to raw spinach so it is not your everyday recipe this- it is a tummy altering one! And you do not have to be a master chef to be able to prepare it either. Meh.
So thank you Martine for sharing it with me….
½ Cup Oil (not olive)
¼ Cup Apple cider vinegar
½ Cup sugar (or less)
1 union cut in quarters
1 Tea spoon Worcester sauce
½ Tea spoon Paprika
Salt & Pepper
2 Table spoons oven roasted sesame seed
1 Table spoon poppy seeds
Just chuck everything into my blender and blend away! Keep in fridge till ready to serve
Arrange 1 packet of young or baby spinach (stems removed) and 2 punnets of Strawberries, cut in pieces, in a bowl and drizzle the dressing over just before serving. Very njammie!!!
I sometimes use my blog as a way to safeguard things that I definitely need to get to again in emergency situations! This 5 minute chocolate cake looks like it could come in very handy from time to time! Thank you Adele for sending it to me- a lifesaver!
5 MINUTE CHOCOLATE MUG CAKE
4 tablespoons flour
4 tablespoons sugar
2 tablespoons cocoa
3 tablespoons milk
3 tablespoons oil
3 tablespoons chocolate chips (optional)
a small splash of vanilla extract
1 large coffee mug
- Add dry ingredients to mug, and mix well. Add the egg and mix thoroughly.
- Pour in the milk and oil and mix well. Add the chocolate chips (if using) and vanilla extract, and mix again.
- Put your mug in the microwave and cook for 3 minutes at 1000 watts (high).
- The cake will rise over the top of the mug, but don’t be alarmed!
- Allow to cool a little, and tip out onto a plate if desired.
- EAT! (this can serve 2 if you want to feel slightly more virtuous).
And why is this the most dangerous cake recipe in the world?
Because now we are all only 5 minutes away from chocolate cake at any time of the day or night!
