have got serious pregnancy hunger
need something i can take to work for a mid-morning snack-vaguely healthy, but definitely cakey that'll stick to my ribs and see me through til lunchtime

and preferably something that I can freeze
am thinking apples as have got a load of apples dh filched from somewhere or other

I use this as my standard muffin mix and put whatever else I want in - diced apple and cinnamon, choc bits, orange rind & poppy seeds.

125g butter
2/3 cup sugar
2 eggs
2 cups SR flour
1 1/4 cups milk

Sometimes I put half mix on the bottom of a slice tray, spread stewed apples over, then top with the rest of the mix. Lovely

Bake at 180.
