Some baking

Firstly a tweaked Masterchef Sausage Roll - I used pork/veal mince and I didn't bother pureeing the veges mine eat bits lol! So they had grated carrot and cheese in them and oh yum!! I used 500g of the mince and 4 sheets of ready rolled puff pastry cut in half. So it made 8 big sausage rolls. I used poppy seeds on the top - except for K who doesn't like those black things lol!! This was enough for dinner for 6, a lunch for Shane for work and 3 lunchtime meals. They were delicious!!



And then it was cold, gloomy and dark and I needed desert after a rough day :( So Lemon and Coconut Self Saucing pudding and oh my it was delicious - ugly but delicious. Next time I think I'll make the top batter a bit runnier, it was quite thick, but nontheless tasty.





And last but not least, cinnamon scrolls, my favourite quick put together last minute morning tea.



2 cups of SR flour, rub in 90g butter and then mix in 2/3 cup of milk to a soft dough. Roll out to a rectangle to about 5mm thickness.

Then mix together 60g softened butter and 2 tablespoons brown sugar , 1 teas cinnamon and spread over the rectangle of the dough. Roll up and then cut into 2 - 3 cm slices. Place dough pieces close together on a tray and bake until golden - about 12 - 15 minutes at 210 deg.

When cool ice with Glace Icing - I use a cup of so of icing sugar, a teaspoon of butter, and enough milk to make a smooth paste, add a drop of pink colour. Mix together until smooth. Zap in the microwave for about 20 minutes and then spoon in dollops onto the cooled scrolls.
