¤ Apple crumble cake ¤

Making this cake is so easy compared to how delicious it is. The first time I tried this recipe, the while cake finished in just a few minutes. It makes for an excellent dessert. I think you should try it too.

– 2/3 cup Self-raising flour
– 1/2 tsp Ground cinnamon
– 3 tbsp Butter
– 2 tbsp superfine Sugar

For the base
-1/4 cup Butter (softened)
– 6 tbsp superfine Sugar
– 1 egg (beaten)
– 1 cup self raising flour (sifted)
– 2 red apples (peeled, cored and sliced.
– 1/3 cup Raisins

To decorate
– 1 red apple (cored, thinly sliced and tossed in lemon juice)
– 2 tbsp sugar (superfi/sifted)
– pinch of ground cinnamon

MARY’S Method
* Preheat oven to 180 degrees celcius.

* Grease a deep 8 inch pan. Line with baking parchment and grease.

* To make the topping, sift the flour and cinnamon into a mixing bowl. Rub the butter into the flour using your fingertips or a pastry cutter until it resembles breadcrumbs, then stir in the sugar. Set aside.

* To make the base, put the butter, sugar, egg and flour into a bowl and beat for 1-2 minutes or until smooth. Spoon into the prepared pan.

* Mix together the apple slices and raisins, and spread them evenly over the top. Sprinkle with the topping.

* Bake for about 1 hour. Cool in the pan for 10 minutes before turning out on a wire rack an peeling off the lining paper. Serve warm or cool, decorated with slices of red apple and sprinkled with sugar and cinnamon.

 It’s toast for breakfast. You may say, “that could be tedious to make because of the morning rush” . . . Here’s what I sometimes do- I make my toast (not too dry) in the night, drop in the refrigerator and simply warm up in the morning (you can warm up in the oven). Besides, I’m sure to have the generator on at night so there’s no stopping me; just in case there is no power from the power supplier in the morning.

Keeping it simple. . .

¤ Toast ¤

– Even number of bread slices (e.g 20)
– 5 Boiled eggs (sliced) or 2 raw eggs
– Margarine (salted)
– Sardine
– Cheese
– Vegetables (tomatoes, onions, leaves, etc)
– Pinch of chilli pepper

MARY’s Method
* Mix the margarine, sardine and pepper in a bowl.

* Slice the vegetables.

* If using raw eggs, beat the egg with a pinch of salt and spices if desired) and spoon on the stuffed bread slices as in the next step.

* Spread the bread slices with the margarine mix. Stuff with other ingredients and place the two slices over each other.

*Toast for about 3 minutes in a bread toaster. Serve warm with juice or cocoa beverage.

» Enjoy!

Watching your weight (or height. . .lol)? I’ve got you covered tonight

Dinner is served. . .

I like the pop of colour the pap from yellow maize gives this dish . . .and it’s got beta-carotene.

For the pap,
– 1 cup fermented corn starch
– 2.5 cups water

MARY’s Method
* Soften the corn starch with half cup of water.

*Boil the remaining water in a pot. Pour in the paste and stir continuously till it fully gelatinizes and gives a very thick paste (that can only be scooped with a spoon). Cook for 5 minutes.

*Spoon the cooked pap into desired mould. Cover the surface with cold water. Allow to cool (you can put the pap in a refrigerator). Turn out from the mould when ready to serve.
