A little pudding thing

24 08 2012

I saw this very nice recipe for what was supposed to be a bikkie but sort of turned out like a little pudding instead, but that didn’t matter, it was completely delicious.

Now I’ve tried these three minute cup cake things in the microwave before, and the results have been terrible, so my expectations were very low, but instead I was delighted.

I’m going to Ozzie-fy the recipe here so that it makes sense, although it wasn’t hard, and give you a few extra suggestions.

You need:

Two Tablespoons of Butter (The original said unsalted, but please!)
One and a half Tablespoons of Sugar (US = Granulated)
One and a half Tablespoons of Brown Sugar
Five Tablespoons of Plain Flour (US = All Purpose)
One Beaten Bum Nut (or Egg)
A few drops of Vanilla Essence (Use the real stuff, please!)
A quarter of a teaspoon of baking powder (Not Bicarbonate!)
Pinch of salt (So why did the original ask for unsalted butter? Skip this)
One snack pack of sultanas (I like fruit)
A Dessert spoon of Choc Bits

Sift the flour into a bowl and add everything except the egg

Beat the egg and add it to the dry stuff.

Mix everything together till it’s nice and smooth.

Pour into ramekins.

Bung it in the Microwave for two minutes on high.
(You may have to adjust this for your microwave)

I used a ramekin but found the mixture bubbled up and over in the microwave,
So use two, and share one with a friend or save it for later.

Here’s a converter for Australian/US Food, which was useful

And here’s a link to the original page, with photos.

Wolfies Tea Party.

20 02 2011

I had a bit of idea, just a small one, but then, a small idea can be quite lovely.
and the implications might be bigger.

Basically all it is, is that sometime tonight, between six and nine pm, we sit down in our favourite quiet spot and have a cup of tea, with a cake or a biscuit.

You will note that I didn’t give any specific time, It’s tea, it shouldn’t be regimented to a specific minute of the day, and many of us are settling kids down for the night, having our evening meal, or watching a favourite tv show… do this when you feel you are ready.

Switch the lights off, except for the nearest one, the tv and the radio too, it will be you, alone, or with a friend, a cup of tea, and a bikkie.

It need not be fancy, you could be at a camp fire with an old metal mug if you’re
lucky enough to be in that situation.

But… because we’re doing this online thing, what I’d like you to do, is grab your mobile, take a photo of your tea, or yourself having tea (don’t spill it) or whatever you feel might be a good shot, Take it and upload it, either to Yfrog or Flickr and tweet with the hashtag #WRtea, So that the rest of us can see you’ve joined in.

It’ll be a much nicer tea party than that other one, and look at the electricity we’ll be saving by switching things off for a little while.

Let’s allow a little Global Togetherness to happen, and create a piece of peace.

Please join us, you’d be most welcome, and spread the word!

Wolfie!

*note: I may re-post photos to the Facebook Event Page, I’ve found that while Yfrog photos easily crosspost to Facebook, Twitpic ones do not, hrmmm.
