A Bit Of Baking

There is nothing like a bit of baking to perk me up when I have been feeling a bit off colour. Nothing to taxing, just a bit of relaxed cooking with familiar recipes. 

All the flavours of  an Anzac biscuit crossed with a Rock cake/bun if you make them with mixed peel.

Fruity Oat  Cookies
125 g butter
2 tablespoons golden syrup
1/3 cup water
1 cup  sugar
1 cup rolled oats
1 cup of dried fruit ( I like a combination of mixed peel, currants and sultanas)
1 teaspoon mixed spice (optional)
½ teaspoon bicarbonate of soda
1 cup flour
1 cup SR flour

Put butter, water and golden syrup into a large saucepan and put on low heat to melt.

Add sugar, oats and dried fruit into the butter mixture, stir to mix well and then leave to cool.

Mix in remaining ingredients.

Place heaped teaspoons of mixture onto greased tray or use baking paper. Alternately, roll mixture into balls using wet hands and press flat as you place them on the tray.

Bake 170 deg C for approx 15 minutes or until golden brown.
Place biscuits on a cooling rack until completely cold. Store in an airtight container. 

Some crumpets and waffles for the freezer and another batch of these chocolate mud cupcakes with coffee and white chocolate filling for a friend’s 70 th.

Some pot pies for dinner.
