The sun is shining, and I decided to try driving again, and went to the neighbouring town, which is 2 miles away. Early. I walked to the bank, walked back to the car, drove home, and I am ready for a nap. But I am happy to say that I did indeed "control the car". It hurts to drive, but if I am supposed to get used to this, then I have to start, don't I.
Oh the freedom! Just getting myself from A to B is something I will not be taking for granted anytime soon, I can assure you.
The Windfall Cake Recipe:
250g (8oz) self raising flour (or ordinary flour with 1 teasp baking powder)
pinch of salt (salt)
Put in large bowl.
175g (6oz) margarine (I think you get margarine - or use butter)
Cut into flour mix till like breadcrumbs. (use fingers or fancy pasty blender thingy)
100g (4oz) Sultanas (golden raisins or any raisins come to that)
100g (4oz) Castor Sugar ( ordinary would do - castor is just more refined than ordinary!)
350g (12oz) peeled, cored and diced apples (weigh them once done, not before!)
2 eggs (are eggs the world over)
Mix with spoon. Do not beat.
Dredge with castor sugar.
Bake at 180degrees C (350F) for about 50 mins in deep 8" round tin.
It is totally wonderful. And it freezes well too, not that you will have a chance to freeze it. I would add a photo, only it is history. Sigh. I still have apples. There may be more baking ahead.
I have added the imperial measurements and the translation, as requested! I am grinning here, because I am usually the one needing translation when I see all the great recipes on line!)
