Treacle Tart is easy. Don't need all those ingredients, strip out
the egg in the tart case. Don't put in the cream in the filling.
They always overly complicate things in recipes. Ok it may not taste quite so good but who has a few table spoons of cream left over, or an egg yoke?

Interesting concept though it does not just take the ingredients you have to make something, it assumes you have other things as well.

Ah the joys of finding out what to cook from a few left overs. Suppose it is useful to give an idea but some adaption will be needed unless you have all the ingredients available.

Tried it with 6 ingredients, baked beans, mince, rice, sausage, carrot, tomato puree. Some things it comes up are possible but it keeps giving me Jacket Potatoes with Cheese and beans. How it gets that from those ingredients is beyond me. Must be a default for Baked Beans.

Good thing though, with say 6 ingredients it does tell you something you could make.

Now if it could tell me if the children would eat it, that would be marvellous!

Is it working?

I've tried three separate ingredients; sweetcorn, mascarpone and chicken. It couldn't come up with any results.

Think I will stick with BBC Good Food which does actually work!
