Moody baking

Last friday was my last day on placement (this year). I "should" be relieved or even happy but NO.. i'm not! Can you believe that some part of me actually crave that hectic lifestyle in the hospital? Mr Ar has been commenting that I'm looking quite stressed and moody this weekend (NOT PMS) and I realised it's because...... I WILL NOT BE SEEING ANY CLIENTS TILL NEXT YEAR!

Well, not exactly right, often, my participants often requires counselling. It's different however when you do work with clients for a period of time.

Anyway, something to relieve my anxiety for not seeing clients..

Cornflake honey slice
I combined cornflakes, coconut, oats, sugar, melted margarine-low fat of course! and honey and tadah..got this!

















Glazed Coffee Cake

185g margarine
1/2 cup caster sugar
2 eggs
2 cups of plain flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon bicarb soda
1 cup low fat light sour cream
couple of tablespoons of strong black coffee.

Coffee glaze
3/4 cup icing sugar
tablespoons of strong black coffee

1) Preheat oven 180 degrees C. Grease and line 1 slice pan.
2) Cream butter n sugar. Add eggs.
3) Sift flour, 1/4 teaspoon of salt, bicarb soda n baking powder into seperate bowl.
4) Fold into creamed mixture-alternate with sour cream. Start and end with flour mixture.
5) Transfer 1/3 of mixture into another bowl-mix coffee.
6) Spoon plain mixture into pan. Top with coffee mixture than plain again.
7) Bake 45 mins.
8) Make coffee glaze by combining all ingrediants into a heatproof bowl. Place ontop of saucepan with boiling water. Stir till glossy.
9) Pour glaze on cake. Wait at least 10 mins till the glaze sets. Slice and SERVE!

This is wonderful with a glass of Brown Brothers Crouchen Riseling.

Piglet mooncakes- Mum sent this to me. A friend made this and gave it to her. My family said since I can't be there to celebrate it with them, they decided to take a picture of these CUTE mooncakes (with lotus filling in them) for me to drool on.

Seeing the picture makes me feel better... ahhh...
