Christmas Bakes

Just a quick hello from me.

It’s been very busy here this week as  I have been baking lots of simple traditional christmasy bakes.  I think  the traditional ones are the best.

I’ve made

  • Coffee cake
  • Sausage rolls
  • Mince pies
  • Lemon drizzle
  • Chocolat yule log
  • Ham

I was also going to make some christmas truffles this evening made from christmas pudding that my Godmother suggested I tried but in all the Christmas rush I forgot to buy some of the ingredients (oppps).

Have a lovely christmas.


Sausage Rolls

I hope you all had a great Christmas and got lots of lovely presents. I got lots of baking bits and bobs including chef’s whites with my name on them and can’t wait to use them all, sooo, this week I am going to bake sausage rolls.

Google says sausage rolls are a fast food I’m not so sure they are that fast to make but homemade sausage meat and rough puff pastry all put together do make some yummy sausage rolls. I had great fun using the mincing attachment on the mixer to mince my meat although I had to use Utube to find out how to put all the different bits together!

DID YOU KNOW – in the 18th century sausage rolls would have been made with shortcrust pastry and that Greggs sell over 140 million sausage rolls a year.

Well thats me for this year I will be back on 1st January. Have a happy new year and see you in 2014.
