Bibbidi Bobbodi Boo – Sweet Tooth Time (Fudge Recipe and Egg-less Cookies)

Hello food…..

Sweet Tooth Time

Sometimes it is essential to find a  form of entertainment that does not involve much money…. some baking maybe? But what if you don’t have everything needed in the house for cakes and brownies and cookies? In this case I had a serious lack of eggs! So here are a couple of ideas of things to make that contain just ingredients most people have in their house anyway.

Egg-less Cookies

Egg-less Cookies

What do I need?

  • 200g Softened Butter or Marg
  • 120g Icing Sugar
  • 1 Tsp Bicarb of Soda
  • 180g Plain Flour (Self-Raising can be used if needed)
  • 80g Porridge Oats
  • 120g Chocolate chunks/chips
  • 1 Tsp Vanilla Essence

What do I do?

  1. Cream together the butter and icing sugar.
  2. Sieve in the flour and bicarb of soda and combine.
  3. Add oats, chocolate and vanilla.
  4. Place small blobs of mixture on a lined baking tray and bake at 180 degrees C / gas mark 5 for 15 minutes (until golden brown).
  5. Et voila – Cookie time. (Leave to cool slightly before taking off baking tray)

Fantastical Fudge

Fantastical Fudge

What do I need?

  • 300g Milk
  • 350g Caster Sugar
  • 100g Butter (unsalted)
  •  1 Tsp Vanilla Essence

What do I do?

  1. Place milk, sugar and butter in heavy based saucepan and heat on a low heat until sugar has dissolved and butter has melted, stirring all the time.
  2. Bring to the boil and keep boiling for about 20 minutes, stirring continuously until it reaches the ‘softball stage’ 115 degrees C on a sugar thermometer.
  3. When at the right temperatue, take off the heat and stir in vanilla essence. Leave to cool for 5-10 mins.
  4. Beat for a minute or so until thickens, and pour in a lightly oiled tray to cool (not in fridge).
  5. Cut into cubes and serve. 

The above recipes can be created very easily within an hour or so! Fantastic if you’re craving sweet things, or just want to do a quick bit of baking!

ENJOY!!
