    by Pauline
    Kindly shared [email protected]

    • 220g Self Raising Flour
    • 110g butter (rubbed in)
    • 110g white sugar
    • 200 grams mixed dried fruit
    • 1 teaspoon mixed spice
    • 1 egg
    • 5 tablespoons of Milk

    Sprinkle Demerara Sugar on top, press with back of spoon (I didn't have Demerara, only soft brown so used that and it might be why the cake is a little dark on top - it certainly isn't hard baked)

    Add all ingredients to a soft dropping consistency

  • REMOSKA RECIPE for Scones
    by SandraM
    8 oz self raising flour

    2 oz butter (I only cook with Benecol - I don't know if that gives a softer texture)

    2oz sugar

    3 oz of fruit (mix of chopped ready to eat apricots, ready to eat cranberries) or Sultanas or whatever fruit you want to try

    In a mixing jug add 1 large egg made up to 1/4 pint with milk (I use semi skimmed - may be even better with whole milk)

    Place a greaseproof cake liner in your cake pan

    Mix "butter"...

    Below I am showing the chutney recipe, the changes I make to this I have typed in red, people can adjust as required. I usually make 3 times the batch to save on electricity, maybe best to try the smaller quantity to see how you like it.

  • Points to consider before buying a motorhome
    by Pauline
    Written by member Blackadderkate this information seemed too useful to be lost in a post, so we have transferred it to the Camping Tips Articles:

    The thing I tell all prospective buyers of motor-caravans is to make a list of "Must Haves", "Want to Have", and "Would Be Nice to Have". I also tell them that no van will tick all the boxes!

    It just isn't possible to fit ovens, fridges, shower cubicles, wardrobes and a luxurious double bed into something...
