Oh Well

AFL season is over for another year, and my team didn't quite get there, it was a great game but I think finals experience won over.

So now what is going to fill up my weekends you ask.............well I can now concentrate on getting the house tidy, getting back to crafting and waiting for summer to arrive!
We got a small taste of warm weather on Sunday, 26 deg yummo, but then Tuesday didn't even make 14 and this morning it is freezing again, but at least the sun is out.

Well I did some baking on Sunday and made a favorite from childhood:

Hokey Pokey Biscuits (makes around 20 biscuits)

125 g butter
1 1/2 cups flour
1/2 cup sugar
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 tablespoon golden syrup
1 tablespoon milk

1. Preheat your oven to 180 C. Then make sure you grease the oven tray well.

2. Place the butter, sugar, golden syrup and milk in a saucepan. Stir over a low heat until the butter has melted. Increase the heat and continue to stir until the mixture almost bubbles, then remove the saucepan from the heat. Allow the mixture to cool.

3.  Sift flour and baking soda into a bowl. Stir the flour into the butter mixture. Mix well.

4. Take a tablespoon of mixture at a time and roll into balls. And place on oven tray

5.  Flatten biscuits slightly with a floured fork. The floured fork helps to prevent the biscuit mixture sticking to the fork. Then bake for 15 - 20 minutes or until golden. When cooked transfer to a wire rack to cool. 

But don't be like me and use baking powder instead of baking soda, I wondered why they didn't taste as good LOL
