    caster sugar is a very fine grade of every day sugar. I just use the every day sugar( granulated sugar), it just takes a bit longer to dissolve. I am not sure that I have seen an equivelant in the states I will ask my hubby when he comes home. The home made curd is far superior to the store bought sort, and well worth making.

    Weigh your mixing bowl.
    Pour in cond milk.
    Weigh again.
    Subtract weight of bowl away from weight of milk.

    Now carefully pour into the bowl the coconut until you have added same weight as the milk.
    Slosh in the vanilla and mix away.
    By this time the oven will be warm enough.

    Sounds luscious....

    Thank you Ollie, my scales are good as you just weigh stuff reset and weigh the next ingredient, that sure should make it easier for some people. They are real nice and are eaten up real quick with my lot. Nice thing is they are totally gluten free so I can eat some as well.

    Keeper of the hens

    Chocolate Brownies

    Ingredients
    obviously ingredients don't have to be vegan, but that's just what we use :P

    75g (3 oz) vegan chocolate
    150g (6 oz) vegan margarine
    150g (6 oz) soft brown sugar
    150g (6 oz) self raising flour
    1tsp natural vanilla essence
    3 -4 tablespoons of soya milk

    Instructions

    1) Melt the chocolate with the margarine in a bowl over a pan of boiling water.
    2) Stir in the sugar, soya milk and vanilla essence, then add the flour. It's a strange gloopy consistency!
    3) Spread into shallow oblong tin (7"x11") and cook for about 20 minutes at 200ºC/400ºF until cooked but still a bit squidgy.
    4) Leave it in the tin to cool, then cut into slices.
    :hungry:

    This is a recipe my Grandma uses (bless her), and it's the nicest cake I have ever eaten in my life, much nicer than any I had when i wasn't vegan! I've never tried to make it, but she can make it real good :001_smile:

    Vanilla Cake

    Ingredients

    275g (11 oz) self raising flour
    1tsp baking powder
    225g (9 oz) caster sugar

    150ml (6 fl oz) vegetable oil
    250 ml (10 fl oz) soya milk or water

    Instructions

    1) Put flour, baking powder and sugar in a bowl and stir.
    2) Add vanilla essence and vegetable oil.
    3) Pour over the soya milk or water and beat with a wooden spoon.
    4) Pour mixture into an oblong tin (7" x 11") and cook for about 25 minutes at 200ºC/400ºF until cooked.

    Yes that's true, Unfortunately I can not eat cake or bread unless it is gluten free and it is usually very dry and cardboardy so I dont bother as the cost of it isnt worth it. I have got used to not having it so it isno problem to me. I feel sorry for other people when we visit as they never know what to feed me with.

    It can be difficult especially when we eat out. I have found that a carvery is ideal for me as I can choose what I like and can help myself. I do eat meat but don't like a lot of it, Luckily I am not allergic to dairy produce as that can go hand in hand with gluten intolerance as is diabetes. There is a new cook book coming out soon by Phil Vickery for Gluten free recipes. It is about £20 so I am going to put it on my wish list for my birthday.

    You need a secret cupboard somewhere NN, to hide all your food! My friend found a gluten free pancake recipe / mixture this year, which she was excited about and said tasted nice. I remember she was really shocked as pancakes had left her feeling ill for years.

    I really miss things like fresh bread, toast with marmite and toasted teacakes. But I can get special flour to make stuff with. I can not be bothered to make stuff just for myself though. I love fresh veg and fruit so we always have plenty of that sort of thing in the house. I know I feel well not having bread and such so it is worth going with out. Two years ago I could hardly walk up the slightest slope and felt so tired and ill all the time. Now I am back to doing every thing again.

    Sorry, only just saw this, but haha, yeah in the end she could eat vegan naan breads and hummus and for breakfast she had some coco pops - she can actually eat a lot of 'normal' food so it wasn't too bad at all, bet I am much harder to feed!!

    I actually like standing and cooking in the kitchen, listening to my ipod (especially when the meal / food you are making actually works!) It was great tonight because I needed a hand chopping veg whilst I cooked the meat, so yelled my dad downstairs and got to boss him about for a bit :cool:

    Keeper of the hens

    I remember when we were about 14 my friends and I tried to make a meringue...it was perfect, but we forgot about it in the oven and it was a dark brown and rock hard when we got it out :o :D

    However that was one of our less disastrous adventures in the kitchen...

    Ha ha that's how you learn, did you still eat it ?I have been known to still do it sometimes cos I am to clever for my own good multi tasking !!!!

    Re; the Greens lemon meringue mix, I think it is one of the very best packet mix going so easy to make and always comes out a treat. I have been using them for many many years now. To be quite honest I don't think my two would have known any difference if I hadn't told them. I just had two lemons to use up so that's how come I made one from scratch.

    Greens used to do a lovely cream caramel mix as well come to think of it. I havent seen it for ages though. I must check it out next time I shop.

    My meringue cases are perfect; creamy coloured, not chalky white and a bit toffee-y.
    I get 'em at Burger's in Marlow High Street.:tooth:

    I wouldn't go near a hamburger place unless I'd been sedated and/or had my brain removed!
    No, Burger's is a bakery at the end of the High Street and sells the best meringue cases on the planet. Hide the boxes and no-one would ever know...:devil:

    Oh Georgie what are you like ?? !! Poor Ollie can't even have forty winks with out you getting up to mischief ha ha. When I had my first mobile phone my son borrowed it and I didnt know it had the vibration thing so you knew someone was calling and it don't make a noise he switched it one and forgot to turn it back to ring. I had the phone in my breast pocket of my denim jacket and it vibrated and scared me half to death I thought I was having a heart attack. It made every one howl with laughter.

    My family are always making me jump, and we never manage to scare my hubby ... except once. Danny (who is now 22 but was about 10 at the time) hid underneath our bed. Hubby sat on the edge of it to take his trainers off and Danny grabbed his ankle. Hubby jumped a mile and screamed. We still laugh about it now. (In fact, I AM laughing now!!!)

    I can give you the full recipe if you want to make some !!! Basically you boil the peel four times in fresh water five minutes each time. Then you make a heavy syrup and cook the peels in that till it goes transpaernt. Then you take the peels out and roll them in sugar and leave them to dry for a day or two all depending on the humidity of the air.
