Nothing fancy just a chat and a cuppa.
So this morning I set about making something to have with that cuppa.
Thought I'd make some little passionfruit meringue tarts.
Do you know passionfruit?
Australians in general love passionfruit.
Fruit salad isn't fruit salad without passionfruit.
They grow on a very vigorous vine with a very pretty flower.
So I set about to make these tarts without a recipe to follow!!
First I used frozen pastry to make the tart cases.
The result was not great!!
Then I made the passionfruit filling.
mmmmm ... tasted good.
I added a meringue topping and cooked them.
Luckily I had one of my favourite standbys on the go too.
5 Cup Cake.
This is a gem when you hear that visitors are on the way and the cake tins are empty.
There are only 5 ingredients:
1 cup of sugar
1 cup of coconut
1 cup of self-raising flour
1 cup of mixed fruit - your favourite combination of sultanas, apricots, dates etc
1 cup of milk
Mix them all together and cook at 180C (350F) for about 45 minutes.Test with a skewer to make sure it is cooked.
Lovely plain or, if you want to be really decadent, buttered with a smear of cold, real butter.
Now ...... I wonder if I should make something else to replace those tarts?
You win some, you lose some.
