Whether you use a pastry sheet, your bench top or a chopping board to roll your pastry or knead your dough, you will end up with dried bits stuck to places they shouldn’t be. Upturn your measuring cup and use the rim to scrape your kneading surface; as it’s usually a round plastic cup, you do more angles at once and won’t scratch your surface. If your measuring cup is metal use a sturdy drinking cup.
- 1/2 cup Caster sugar
- 1/4 cup Margerine, softened
- 1/2 cup Milk
- 1 cup Self raising flour
- 1/4 cup Melted Margerine
- 1 teaspoon Cinnamon
- 4 teaspoons Caster sugar
- Heat oven to 180*C
- Beat margarine and sugar in a bowl.
- Add milk slowly, it will sort of split and not look good but keep going. Add flour and mix by hand until combined for about 1 minute.
- Spoon into cupcake papers in a cupcake pan, bake for approx 12-15 mins or until cooked, test with a skewer.
- While cupcakes are cooking mix the cinnamon and sugar.
- When cupcakes come out of the oven immediately brush with melted butter and top liberally with the sugar cinnamon. For me this mix makes 8 or 9 cupcakes.
The time has finally come, we have finished all those treats that only come out at Christmas time, white christmas, rocky road and the any time chocolate cheese cake balls. It’s lovely to have these in the fridge to munch on at any time but it’s nice when they’re gone as we know the calorie intake will lessen.
The recipe for white christmas and chocolate cheesecake balls are in the file of RECIPES above.
Here’s to new endeavours and a start to my blogging life. My husband of 26yrs nudged me this way.
I’ve had many ideas in my head over the years, collected by raising 2 lovely boys to being great young men.
I hope I can string my ideas together in a meaningful way that shows you can live within a budget. It’s all about how I can use one item, recipe, idea in more than one way. I hope you like what I’ve learnt from many friends relatives and media sources. Cheers
