We had a day off board games today, hurrah! I was feeling very tired and not sure I would have been in the mood for another board game today, 3 nights and 3 full days of being the only parent here as worn me out a little. I will be so glad to have my hubby back tonight, I cannot tell you! My tiredness coupled with Ruben's sudden full energy returning did not make for the best morning but I managed to resuce it a bit with this very quick cake recipe. As his sisters have done so much baking lately I think he was feeling a little left out so we made this chocolate crunch, somewhere between a cake and a biscuit and very quick. All you need is :
180g of butter, melted in the microwave for 2 1/2 mins
1 cup of cornflakes
3/4 cup of dessicated coconut
1 cup self raising flour
2 tablespoons of cocoa powder.
Sift flour and cocoa into cornflakes and coconut, mix in the butter, mix very well.
Grease a microwavable dish, press mixture firmly in and cook on medium high in microwave for 5 minutes.
You can decorate with choclate icing too but sadly, we used it all on gingerbread men yesterday!
Ruben has had another story out of this book:
