Hi there, What a palaver - basically, I never bake, so have no fool proof recipes or favourites. Tomorrow is the annual 'do' at my Husbands cousins ( a story in itself ) where since said cousin took up baking a s a hobby a couple of years ago - expects everyone to turn up with an 'entry' for 'bake off' type competition. I have nothing in, not really any implements, and not really any time. Does anyone have any simple yet effective recipes for me to try? If I am going to do anything, I need to make a 'proper' attempt.. It's all a bit odd as they take it all very seriously.. All answers greatly appreciated!
Flapjacks are dead easy...just melt butter and golden syrup in a pan and stir in porridge oats. Once the oats are all coated put into a tin, flatten and bake in the oven for 14mins. You can jazz them up with dried fruit like apricots, cherries or chocolate chips etc
You could also make some coconut ice this again is simple just dessicated coconut and condensed milk then you chill it for 24hrs. Make one layer white then tint one pink, food coloring is less than £1 in supermarkets, once it's out of the fridge cut into squares and put into a jar with some tags and pretty ribbon around it.
