Think of it this way, mixing by hand is a great workout.

Scones and pikelets always go down well with the blokes. Lots of loaf and cake recipes don't need creaming - they are melt the butter recipes.

I am so looking forward to getting a new mixer in the coming week or so but in the mean time I can do all of these recipes and still look like a pro! I will enjoy baking these and while doing so I will be thinking of the wonderful people on here who have given their time to give them to me.

Banana Cake

2 1/2 cups flour
1 2/3 cup sugar
1 ¼ teaspoons baking soda dissolved in 2/3 cup milk
¾ cup melted butter
3 mashed bananas
2 eggs

Put ingredients together, lastly eggs and melted butter. Beat all 2 minutes (just normal stirring with your hand - can just do it gently. I'm never that careful with the 2 mins bit). Bake ¾ - 1 hour 180oC.

I have always made this in a ring tin and it comes out lovely and high and moist. Not sure how it will turn out in other types of tins.

What about homemade chicken pies using prerolled puff pastry. Cut a sheet into four & lay out in oiled muffin pans. Cook your chicken breast in a pan with a bit of oil & curry powder. Cook a creme of chicken soup with half the water. Add chicken, then spoon in to the pastry. Twist the tops closed and bake for about 20mins til lovely & brown

does this work ok without the vegetables?

jessie981, Mar 27, 8:56am

lx4000, Mar 27, 9:03am
I would think so, but you can use any veggies you like! Or try with mixed herbs or rosemary. I have never made them with out the veggies or with the herbs added. Let me know how they go!!
