Looking for inspiration? Top Bananas! the Mumsnet cookbook is packed with great recipes your family will love.
I have a recipe for the most amazing fruit cake which you don't use any scales. It's a really old recipes of my grandads. 2 cups of SR flour1 cup of sugar1 cup of milk1 egg2 heaped tablespoons meted butter1 cup of dried fruit/raisins/sultanas Pinch of mixed spice. Chuck in a big bowl, mix together, pour unto greased cake tin and bake or one hour. (Use same size cup for all ingreedients) I'm not a baker but this is so easy, the kids love it, is great for lunch boxes and is cheap. I also sometimes put any banana that's going over in it, walnuts or apricots. Does anyone else have any similar recipes they'd like to share that are quick and easy for a complete novice?
Forgot 1tsp of bicarbonate of soda!
