Maurice finally made it outside!
The snow is gradually melting away to reveal the aconites again
and the first snowdrops appear.
I spent the weekend at home, warm inside knitting, baking and finally getting some housework done. I made some of Jay's favourites - boiled fruit cake and these currant buns that are also my Dad's favourite. This is my Mum's recipe and my Dad always had one in his packed lunch when he went to work.
Makes approx. 15
4 oz soft margarine
4 oz granulated sugar
8 oz SR flour
2 medium eggs
4 oz dried fruit
a little milk
Preheat oven to 190'C and place paper cases in a bun tin.
Cream together margarine and sugar.
Beat in eggs, with a little flour if necessary.
Fold in flour and fruit.
Add a little milk to form a soft dropping consistency.
Fill bun cases 3/4 full.
Bake for approximately 12 minutes.
The dessert this weekend was apple and mincemeat crumble with custard.
I'm going to have to exercise more!!
