I have regularly been baking your Oatmeal Bread. I leave the oatmeal and milk to soak as instructed in the recipe. During the summer months, will it be alright to leave it soaking out of the fridge? I made the bread today and put the oatmeal in the fridge. The bread took longer to rise and I’m wondering if it was due to the oatmeal mixture being too cold.
What’s your best ideas for impressing my wife ?
Can you freeze a sponge cake with a lemon curd filling?
i have a few tins of blackcurrants which i need to use up
The recipe for hot cross buns states 4 level tsp of easy bake yeast. The measuring teaspoon I have is 5ml and 4 of these sounds an awful lot of yeast. I have read previously that Delia uses a 5ml measure for a teaspoon but I thought I would check that 4 of these is right. Thank you.
Just after your thoughts really.
Today I made the chocolate ricotta cheesecake and tomorrow I plan to make a lasagna. I have about 150g of ricotta leftover and wondered about throwing it into the mix when I make the bechamel sauce...I’d infuse the milk and proceed as normal, and when done, stir and melt through the ricotta.
Do you think that would work?
Hope you all have a splendid Easter
