Cleaning, tidying, baking and even a bit of dress making.
Now before I forget...
Just in case you want to link up with another mad member of the family - my daughter M has set up her own blog. (Not to be confused with Annie's daughter M who is expecting twins any day now.)
My M's blog is http://tillyteadance.blogspot.com/. I don't know how much time she will have for blogging as she is trying really hard to create some more lovely items for her Etsy shop -http://www.etsy.com/shop/tillyteadance?ref=pr_shop
Anyway - she has created a lovely page - I didn't realise she had such IT talent - so pop over and say hi - she will be thrilled to meet you.
Just a few things to share with you...
Di asked for the recipe for my Moccachino slices.
I found them in this little recipe book that Annie bought me for Christmas. It has lots of fab buns and tray bakes.
225g dark brown sugar
2 large eggs
3tbsp boiling water with 1 tbsp instant coffee
2tsp baking powder
125g plain flour
284ml pot soured cream
300g white chocolate broken into chunks
4 tsp caster sugar
cocoa powder to dust
(I halved the topping ingredients and there was still enough to coat the cake)
Takes 45 mins Makes 12 large or lots of small ones.
1. Oven 180/160 fan oven. Greased and lined baking tin 30 x 23 cm
2. Melt butter in large pan and stir in brown sugar. Mix well
3. Take off heat and stir in beaten eggs and coffee/water.
4. Add baking powder and flour and mix really well.
5. Pour into baking sheet and bake for 20 mins until set.
6. Allow to cool and turn out onto board.
7. Meanwhile, melt choc, caster sugar and sour cream in a small bowl over pan of simmering water.
8. Stir well and leave for 15 mins.
9. Spread all over top of cake and then dust with cocoa.
10. Leave to set then cut into squares.
Its yummy but quite calorific - so make tiny squares and savour them - no don't eat two!!!!!!
The latest frocks hot from the sewing machine...
Suz for all the lovely pillow cases. The little flowery sheet came from one of Annie's customers.
And lastly - just in case we needed a little more to keep us going. One of my friends who has a brill fabric warehouse Woodside Fabrics kindly sent us this huge parcel of poly cottons....
A big thank you to P & G - I am sure there will be lots of happy little girls once we get cracking on that lot!!!
OK - I am off to Wipso's to see if that nifty little skirt, that I made on Tuesday, fits the lovely
little Dutch girl.
Have a thrilling Thursday all!!
