I have long been on a search for a really good “cakey” cookie recipe, something of the “ben’s cookie” variety. I have tried a few and finally, after tweaking and researching i think I got the result i wanted from this little recipe.Let me know what you think if you try it.makes about 11 cookies
1/2 cups of butter, melted in a bain marie
2/3 cups sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
3/4 cup wholemeal flour
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 1/2 cups rolled oats
1 cup raisins
heat the oven on quite a low heat (175°C ish).this helps with the soft texturemelt butter in bain mariesoak raisins in hot water
In a large bowl, whisk together the butter, brown sugar, egg and vanilla until smooth.
add dry ingrediants and the soaked raisins
chill in fridge for at least 20minsspoon on to a lined baking tray (i used a 1/4 cup measuring scoop per cookie)
pop in oven until edges are brown but the middle is still a little undercooked looking- (this sometimes take 12mins but in my oven about 17 mins)ta-da!

I have been a very lazy blogger.apologies
firstly i must advise you all to go to the Nordic Bakery in soho
would you get a load of those desaturated COLOURS!!! yikes it is so pretty! and delicious- that drink is RHUBARB cordial and it is so so yummy. if any one has a recipe i would be delighted to make some.
after going to the bakery to try the infamous Cinamon Rolls i had to come home and follow the recipe to make my own- the recipe can be found hereThey did seem kinda time consuming but the results are truly delicious.although if you live in london it is most likely that getting a bus to Soho is quicker than making this yourself.But so so delicious.
Rye bread is the next Nordic recipe i must conquer.
I must also advise you all to make this recipe from the wonderful what katie ate. i like the rustic look of this tart- i think that is my cooking style.
this is my version and it blew my greedy brains out. so delicious. the recipe says to use pre made pastry- i made my own, i have not tried the pre made stuff but if you have time- make your own. YUM evidence of the yumminess can be seen in this picture- you can see where i could not resist breaking a bit of pastry off the edge and eating it before i took a quick photo.
In non food related news, i am delighted to be featured on Creatives Inc website. i must thank the lovely Lizzie and i hope so fun projects may come out of it.
i would love to show you a really nice sample of a santa i have designed that came in from the suppliers in the far east this week but i think i would get in trouble from work….. maybe once he hits the shops i can let you catch a glimpse of him.
