To celebrate the much underrated gooseberry - I give you :-

STICKY GOOSEGOG CAKE

an unusual cake with a sticky 'toffee''  topping contrasting with sharp gooseberries

Stage 7 & 8 need careful handling but the added yoghurt makes for a more substantial mix which is less inclined to sink

INGREDIENTS
125g Sugar                                           for the topping
75g   Butter                                          300g      Gooseberries, topped & tailed
75g   Natural Yoghurt                            25g       Butter
2       Eggs                                              5 Tbsp  Golden Syrup
150g SR Flour


METHOD
1. grease/line a 9in x 7in  baking tray  and pre-heat oven to 180C

2. cream butter & sugar

3. add yoghurt & 50g flour & mix well

4. Add eggs and remaining flour and mix well

5. Pour into baking tray and put in oven

6. melt butter & golden syrup and stir in gooseberries  to coat in mixture  and allow to cool slightly

7. After 20mins cooking carefully remove tray from oven and pour on the gooseberry mixture and spread out

8. Return carefully to oven and cook for a further 30 mins till gooseberries are starting to brown

9, cool in tin for 10 mins then transfer to wire cooling tray


Enjoy warm with creme fraiche or cream        or cold on its own




Now what's your favourite gooseberry recipe???
Playing all the right notes but not necessarily in the right order!

Thanks for that, my eldest has just discovered a gooseberry bush (wonder if it has babies underneath  :blink:) in his overgrown garden, so as soon as they are ripe I will try this  :D
Staffies are softer than you think.

Mmmmm!

That sounds fab!
Think I will have to try that out when mine are ripe. As you say, a much under rated fruit.
Be like a duck. Calm on the surface but always paddling like the dickens underneath.

Works best with gooseberries that are green and sharp - contrast with the 'toffee'
