Today’s consolation prize

I baked.
I was so fed up after today’s events and Hubby was yummy hungry, so I make rock buns.
I made 8 (and a small loaf cake which when cool was wrapped in greaseproof paper and put in the freezer)
This is what was left by the time I’d got the camera and washed up.
The ‘problem’ with my fruit cakes is that they are always best just out of the oven.

This recipe was reduced sugar, so
4 oz margarine
8 oz flour
generous handful of sultanas
2 oz sugar
2 eggs

Flour and margarine are rubbed together until resembling breadcrumbs (though it doesn’t matter if there are a few chunky bits of marg) add the sultanas and sugar, then bind together with the eggs.
Dollop by teaspoon onto a greased and floured baking tray, and cook in a moderate oven 180 C for twenty five minutes.
If any do survive to grow cold, they are nice with a slice of cheese and/or butter.
These didn’t.

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! In November 2020, we lost our beloved Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. We decided to have a photo put on canvas as we had for her predecessor Barney. We now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of Kizzy, my GSD when Hubby and I first met so had hers done too. On February 24th 2022 we were blessed to find Maya, a 13 week old GSD pup who has made her own place in our hearts. You can follow our training methods, photos and her growth in my blog posts. From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives. We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.

    I had a surprise today. Rhubarb crumble again from my neighbour. So that’s been my treat today.

    Your rock buns look great and I can imagine them tasting nice, while still warm. I can envision a mug of tea with those.
