Small loaves and 3 freebie tins
I mixed up the dough last night and made a small, freeform loaf for lunchtime. I had made some soup with the gammon juices, so I had a slice, buttered, with that. It was delicious, and I’ve made a diary note of when I put the dough in the fridge, so I know when I need to top it up if I haven’t used any in the meantime!
When I went to the U3A book group on Thursday, the convener asked if I used condensed milk, yes, I said. She then proceeded to give me 3 cans! They are well out of date, but I don’t care much about things like that.
I use it for a proper Bircher muesli, the condensed milk makes it go all thick and syrupy, it’s lovely. I use the Rose Elliot recipe, I’ll dig it out for you.
I wondered what else I could use this little windfall for, so I had a little Google, as you do. I looked it up on the Nestle site. For Tin One, I am thinking of this Raspberry Cheesecake using some fruit I have stashed in the freezer.
For Tin Two, I thought an ice cream, either this Sozzled Fruit Ice Cream,
Or this Caramel Parfait,
Or maybe even, Banana, Fudge and Cinnamon Ice Cream.
And for Tin Three? These Millionaires Shortbreads are calling my name
Dangerous game tho, as I really shouldn’t have any chocolate. Plus they are hardly calorie free
Like the pictures? Wish my foodie shots were as nice as these
Does it? I suppose I’ll have to wait until I open a tin then to find out. Nothing lost if it is bad
I’ve found that condensed milk is one of very few things that actually dutifully go bad after they expire! But maybe you are luckier than I am! 😉
Joy, I had never heard of MOO, so I googled it, and found this http://www.debtfreecashedupandlaughing.com.au/2013/10/moo-condensed-milk.html where the blogger is making condensed milk. I’ll cost it at some point to see if it is cheaper here in the UK.
Is that what you meant by MOO? If it is maybe you have your own recipe that you could share?
What a lovely gift. The cheese cake looks absolutely scrummy!
Glad you’ve got your sourdough starter working again.
Lesley did you know you can MOO condensed milk,or evaporated? I haven’t bought them for years, it’s easy and really economical.
