In the Kitchen: Flapjack (the best ever)

We love flapjack, however my home made ones have not been as good recently (not soft enough) and therfore I have been desperately searching for a new recipe!

A Google search led me to The Hedge comber blog and what claimed to be  “The best flapjack recipe in the whole wide world ever!”. Quite a statement! I had all the ingredients in so I decided to give it a whirl and it did not disappoint!

Fab recipe, perfect consistency and very filling! I cut into 10 pieces instead of 16, next time I will go for 16 these are way too big!

The boys loved them too so I’ll certainly be making them again!

I enjoyed them with a nice cup of tea!

Recipe can be found over on The Hedge combers blog here

In the kitchen: Lime drizzle cake

Today I baked a cake for the first time in ages. We are going out for the day tomorrow and taking a picnic so I thought I would try a recipe I found HERE on Green Cooking Blog for lemon drizzle sponge with lime buttercream.

Out came my trusty mixer I’m unsure how old it is but I am 35 and it belonged to my Nan who passed away when I was 7!

I followed the recipe except I put the buttercream in the middle as it’s less messy to eat!

image

I baked as one sponge though, just so I could try out the cotton cutting method….look how straight it is!

The buttercream  is beautiful, I’m not usually a buttercream fan but the lime juice stops it being to sickly.

It’s a huge hit with everyone, hope there is some left for our picnic tomorrow!

Thanks for posting the recipe Will!

In the Kitchen: Ikea Meatballs!

I love Ikea meatballs! However I do have to limit my trips to Ikea as they can be quite expensive.
I was searching the internet for a recipe for the cream sauce and came accross a fab blog with some yummy recipes, one of which was a complete Ikea meatball and sauce recipe.

The recipe can be found on Christine’s food blog here.

Here is a photo of my attempt…the photo is of one of the boys little portions, we ate way more!

Will definitely be making this again.
