I'm limited to time as I'm on internet at library with my 2yo so a quick answer would be appreciated.My first is . . . . what would you do with a gammon joint for Sunday dinner?And my second is . . . . does anyone know how you work out how many egg sponge mix to use to fit tins?As in, I have a 9" square tin I want to make a cake in, but could do with the cake rising right to the very top of the tin. How do I work out how many eggs to use?TIA if you have time to answer
Two options with gammon. Either cook it in cider, with a mustard glaze, or bake it as any other joint, but serve it with saute or new potatoes, a nice thick onion sauce and veg
Roast the gammon and serve with veggies if it's a cold day or serve it cold with salads if it's warm. Can't help on the cake one!
I'd serve the gammon with jacket potatoes and cauliflower cheese.Sorry, no use for you on the cake one.
roasted veg and new potatoes
sounds good with the cider & mustard glaze, more exciting than a plain old roast. Never mind about the cake one, that'll probably have to wait for another day.Thanks
Viz the cake; my usual rule is half the amount of eggs to oz of flour, so if I've used 8oz of flour I'll use 4 eggs.
1. Boil in cider for 20 mins per 500g + 20 mins. Can put bay leaves, peppercorns, onion, carrot, anything you like in with. Glaze in fruit juice plus syrup and mustard and cloves. Bake for 15 minutes. Serve with roast asparagus and boiled potatos.2. 9" tin should be a 2 or 3 egg sponge.
There's a recipe for boiling it in coca-cola, it's supposed to be really nice.
thanks for the help rethe cake question, I just had a guess & it worked fine. Sorry for taking so long to say thanks, have only just got chance to get on a pc
