our good deed

so me and Finn done some baking on Thursday for a fund-raising event for a friend in the Derry well woman centre..... finn was quite the chief ( and with my Thomas the tank engine apron on too!!!!)

first the butter and the brown sugar were creamed

then the egg and vanilla essence were beat in.....

now for the flour and baking powder.......

(the camera ran out of battery ran out so were on the phone camera hence the light change!)
now we added the oat & raisins

rolled to the size walnut's and pressed, ready for the oven......

now how's this for training them young huh.... he's 2y 8m :)

the recipe is from Anabella Karmel's super food book so it's good for you and the kid's well that's what i say myself when i much through them!!!!!

  • 115g (4 1/2 oz) unsalted butter
  • 100g (4oz) caster sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tsp pure vanilla essence
  • 140g ( 5 oz) plain flour
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 100g (4 oz) rolled oats
  • 100g (4 oz) raisins
grease proof paper ..... i only say this as i have got to the end of prep only to realize i had none!!!!
pre-heat the oven to 180 oc /350 of /gas mark 4
it says 15 mins but i am fan assisted so i say just check after 10 to see how they look if they are golden brown yank them out leave them to cool and enjoy

ps i always use salted butter and then ignore the 1/2 tsp....
