#123

Looks great. I now need a piece of cake and a cup of tea, thanks!


#124

Extremely tempted to get the Kenwood out and ready for action soon.


#125

Looks fantastic & righteously devoid of icing & cherries :+1:

I have the ingredients in. I just need to get some of the baking beads.


#126

Strong contender to bring to Lopwell.


#127

Which recipe did you use? I considered a couple but then realised they had terrible reviews. (too bland)

Did you have to add any almond essence?


#128

These are Ali’s handiwork, not mine.

Slightly adapted from this.


#129

Yes, some don’t include the almond extract & apparently miss the spot. That looks proper.

Never knew of the existence of the bakewell pudding and am now supremely thankful that i’ve been on this earth nearly 50 years without encountering this abomination.

Bakewell tarts on the other hand are wondrous in all their guises, slices, iced, etc. I prefer the full on diabetic coma of the iced variety but will inhale several kilos of whatever variety is put in front of me though. Room temperature, or slightly cooled if you please if iced, could go warm if un-iced with a dollop of clotted cream on the side by preference but if i have to chip it out of an ice block with a spoon then it’s still getting eaten.

To reiterate pudding can fuck off, tarts, get in ma belly.


#131

Rice in clingfilm.


#132

Will try it.


#133

The cling won’t melt and can be reused several times. Narelle finds the rice gives a better finish than beads.


#134

Great Zappa guitar solo :guitar:


#135

Haven’t I read somewhere that some types of clingfilm shouldn’t be heated because they can leach nasty stuff out?


#136

It’s never done me any harm :crazy_face::crazy_face:


#137

I dunno…look at your new title line…:laughing:


#138

Do try to keep up Bruv. It’s been there a while now.

But when I find out who was responsible :rage:


#139

This has promise. Just cooling.


#140

Looks far to big for just the two of you.
