Well … the oven is still waiting for parts?!! So we have well and truly tested out our bus oven and kitchen over the last week. The bread baking in particular is proving easier than I thought … my only real ‘issue’ is that I have to pre-heat the gas oven to get it to the correct temperature as it doesn’t have a gas mark guide on the knob. Those of you that know me and my baking habits will know that this is a new experience as I am forever plonking stuff in a cold oven and adjusting cooking times after that!
The other baking of biscuits and other snacky morsels is also going really well. So my recipe this week is one that I made in the bus for my Infant Massage course and it went now a treat. I have shared a version of this recipe before however since then I have modified it further so that it is gluten free. These are a super easy and a super yummy snack with no worries of over indulging – well not much :). NB: If you do use the patty pans then let them cool fully otherwise half the muffin will be stuck to the paper – I have learnt the hard way 🙂
