I did loads of baking yesterday but forgot to take a photo before I packaged it up & it went in the hampers,2 of which have been given out with various chutneys & jams. There was mincemeat slice, coconut ice, Christmas tiffin, spicy sugared nuts, petit four biscuits & chocolate truffles with Grand Marnier. I hope they like them.

I've made Eccles cakes a few times in the last year and made these ones last week.

I make my own puff pastry using the frozen grated method. I use olive spread frozen and grated.
You can of course cheat and use the ready made stuff, but of course it will not be as good.

Roll out the pastry to about 1/8 inch thickness and cut to create twelve 3 1/2 inch square rectangles.
 
For the filling;
8 oz Currants, sultanas or fruit of your choice
2 oz butter
2 oz sugar

Mix all filling ingredients together in a bowl until fruit is fully covered.
Put about two tablespoons of the filling in the centre of each puff pastry square.
Fold each corner to the middle and pinch them all together.
Turn over and flatten with a rolling pin or your hand.
Cut about four lines into each.
Place on a grease proofed baking tray and rest for an hour.
Wash with water or egg whites and sprinkle sugar over each one.
Bake at 180c for around 20 mins until golden brown.

Ohh!!!!! Saved by the bell!  I was just browsing through the posts and saw this - thank goodness.  It reminded me that I have a fruit cake in the oven downstairs.  Must go and rescue it before it becomes burnt offerings.

Yes when I saw them I thought ĎI bet theyíre easier to make than the traditional round onesí! I actually think yours look nicer too 😊

Picked a load of Fresh rhubarb last week.
Already made loads of Rhubarb crumble, had some Friday and rest is now in freezer.

Thought I'd add Rhubarb to my muffins, that I usually later in the year normally use with picked raspberries.
They came out well, and tasted so lovely of Rhubarb...

Ignore the loaf that sneaked in the photo, it is just my regular Sesame oil, breadmaker dough loaf I make every weekend.

This is my defacto muffin recipe;

150g plain flour
150g brown sugar (you can use a mix of brown/white sugar or just white sugar, but the colour of the muffin will be paler)
125 ml milk and 125 ml yoghurt (or you can use 250 ml of buttermilk).
75g wheat bran, that is weetabix or bran flakes crushed.
100g of fruit mix of your choice including about 50g of currants/sultanas
75 ml vegetable oil
1 egg
1Ĺ tsp baking powder
Ĺ tsp baking soda
Ĺ tsp vanilla flavouring
Pinch of salt

Instructions:
Mix the milk and yoghurt in a bowl. Add the crushed bran, mix, and allow to stand for 10 minutes.
Put the sugar, oil, vanilla flavouring and egg in another bowl. Beat well.
Add the wheat bran mixture and mix well.
Sieve in the flour, baking soda and baking powder. Add a pinch of salt and mix well. Mix in the fruit.
Divide the batter equally into a lightly-greased muffin tray or use muffin cases cups if you prefer.
Bake at 190įC for about 15-20 minutes.
Leave to cool in the tray for 10-15 minutes before turning out onto a cooling rack if not in muffin cases.

To make your own Buttermilk:
1 cup milk
1 tbsp white vinegar or lemon juice
Combine the milk and white vinegar or lemon juice.
Let the mixture stand for 5-10 minutes, so the milk has a chance to thicken and curdle.

I use Waitrose Cook Ingredients muffin cases that are 1.5 inch high and put a large heaped tablespoon of mixture in each one and any left share amongst the cases, normally works out about a teaspoon more per case.
