I'd heard of these microwaved cake-in-a-mug before, but never actually tried them. So when the kids got home from school this afternoon we gave it a shot.
|Eating - it didn't even make it out of the cup|
Not the most elegant presentation I'm afraid, but small people were tired and crabby after a long week of school - its nearly the end of term as well - so it was wisest to let them dig in without any delay :). Was rather amazed at how easy and how yummy they were. See Rach's blog for the recipe etc.
Have had a day in the kitchen, dealing with the apples we picked up at Bilpin a few weeks ago.
Two batches of blackberry and apple jam (about 7kgs in total, which cost me about $30 in total - largest expense being the 3kgs blackberries which I bought. That's around $1.36 a jar)
I also made a second batch of apple pie filling. So I've now got the equivalent of 12 apple pies in the freezer (no pastry).
Knackered now, and yes I peeled all those apples (but do have a brillo mixer that has a slicer attachment which does all the slicing for me).
