Day 126: To her door
6oz caster sugar
2 dessertspoons dried ginger
9oz self-raising flour
2 dessert spoons black treacle
1 cup water (the Landlady substituted 1 cup of orange juice and also added some grated orange rind)
Melt butter in a saucepan. Mix all other ingredients and stir well. Cook in a greased and lined tin at about 350F/180C for 45 minutes.
Meanwhile, I made pistachio macaroons with honeyed white chocolate ganache from a Women's Weekly recipe book. I think they will taste good but they aren't the most attractive - sizing is a bit uneven and the first tray was a little overcooked. On the upside, I think I got the food colouring right and the ganache tasted very good. However, if this had been Masterchef, I'd have been eliminated! Notwithstanding, we'll have one or two for dessert and I'll take the rest to KB's place later today - another weapon in the armoury.!
