I agree re the sponges but there are recipes for brown sugar pavlovas.
What type of baking do you want to make/have, survivorr - cake, slice, biscuits, loaf.! and what other ingredients do you have availablee.g. nuts, cocoa, chocolate!I assume that you must obviously have the basics i.e. butter, eggs, flour, etc.:-))

Yes - have all the basics.Probably biscuit type stuff.I bought it months and months ago - don't know what for - and now just want to use it up.Preferably something I could take to work (for everyone not me).
