Here is the recipe for Yogurt Pot Cake.
Preparation 10 minutes - Cooking 30 mins - Oven temp 200-220°c, gas mark 6-7
You will need one, oiled/greased loaf tin
1 natural (unsweetened) yogurt (125g) (use the pot as a measure)
2 pots of self raising flour
2 pots of sugar
0.5 pot of vegetable oil
tsp vanilla essence
There is no real method, you empty the yoghurt out of the pot into a bowl and then use the pot to measure out the other ingredients into the same bowl. Mix it together to make a cake batter. Pour into a loaf tin and cook for around 30 mins (my oven is a bit fierce, so I cook at around 180 degrees c for a bit longer). You can also add a pot of choc chips or blueberries or anything else to flavour it if you like. Or the juice and zest of a lemon is also nice.
I'm impressed with your choice of reading. I LOVE Brian Cox, but I get completely lost with his TV shows! Physics was never my strong point!chillilover wrote:I really admire people who can sew. I've tried but things just come out looking unusable and when I say I've tried I really mean just mending things.
To me reading is like breathing. I couldn't live without it but I can't count it as a hobby. I read loads and I cover most genres apart from historical. i also try to have one serious book on the go. Being a bit of a geek I'm reading the Quantum Universe by Brian Cox.
I'm also thinking about getting a dog. I've never had one and I'm nervous about taking the plunge. i've always thought I'd get a rescue dog but my husband has his heart set on a Cavapoo. They're completely adorable and I'm coming round to one. They all have waiting lists though as puppies from good breeders are very sought after.
I'd still like a proper hobby. I've tried bead making and a few other things. At the moment I'm getting into baking. Fortunately I have two grown up sons still living at home so everything I make gets eaten no matter how badly it turns out. I made the Mary Berry lemon drizzle cake on Sunday. I doubled the recipe but it was still all gone in a day. Better than it hanging around in a tin though.
Any other hobby suggestions willingly received.
I am impressed by your sewing efforts, what an amazing thing to be able to whip up a whole holiday wardrobe! Where are you off to?bowlingbun wrote:Sewing, sewing, sewing, followed by..more sewing!
I always used to have a "strictly one at a time" rule for sewing, but am ashamed to say that I have a lot of things that either need a binding, a zip or buttonholes to finish them. My main machine for buttonholes has been away for service, but is now home again.
I'm trying to absolutely perfect invisible zips - I'm really good at the sort you can see, but not the invisible ones, so I'm waiting for absolutely uninterrupted calm (!) one day so I can really concentrate on getting them right.
Then I'll have masses of new things for my holiday in September, including 2 wrap skirts, 2 skirts with 8 sections to the skirt, 2 new dresses and 2 blouses. All in light cotton so will weigh next to nothing. Thompson have a very miserly baggage allowance of 15kg for the hold bag and 5kg for the cabin bag, which must contain any handbag or electronic devices!!!
