Today's flower is Alyssum. Not a showy one but great as a ground cover around other plants. It self seeds well too. This was a packet of mixed pastel colours.
I got to these feijoas before anything else chewed them.They were warm lying in the sun when I picked them up. Yum.
I did some baking today.
Chewy Fruit Slice.
Here it is in the sponge roll tin . It needs pressing down flat but is quite a sticky mixture.
This is my trick for doing that without wasting any stuck to your hand. Wrap a small piece of glad wrap around your fingers and it doesn't stick at all.
It is seriously yummy. Here's the recipe.
1 1/2 cups of flour ; 1 tsp of baking powder. ; 2 cups dried fruit ( apricots sultanas etc ) ;
1 egg; 1 cup of sugar; 150 grams of butter; 1 tblsp of golden syrup ; 1 cup of coconut.
Method: Melt butter and sugar and golden syrup. Let cool. Add egg and beat in. Mix into dried ingredients . Press into a greased or lined flat tin ( sponge roll tin )
Bake 20 -30 minutes at 180 degrees C. Watch the first time you make it as ovens are all different. ( mine took less time )
Cool then cut into slices. Keep refrigerated or better still freeze some of it as it's very tempting.
