So last night, a little restless I opted to bake myself to a point of zen calm. I went for caramel shortcake which I have never made before and for which I lacked a vitalingredient. At least it’s an ingredient that is listed in various recipes for the stuff butI’ve never considered desiccated coconut to be vital in anything except bounty bars soI proceeded regardless.The base was simple enough and off it went into the over while I stirred the makingsof the caramel for 15minutes as instructed. I was unconvinced, it still seemed way too liquidy to me, but I confess after ten mins in the oven I had the beginnings of acaramel shortcake. I added the chocolate top (way too thin, will double the quantitiesin future), put another tray over the top and went to bed.This morning I had a tray full of yumminess.
It’s not perfect, the recipe needs somealterations, but the flavour is the thing and it tastes nomilicious.
Also, went to see Tangled this evening and have to say it was wonderfully cute and fluffy and fun. Would recommend it to anyone who fancies something a bit pointless and whimsical. The lead characters were nicely done and some of the body language and facial expressions were actually relatively subtle for Disney. Yay for that. Vibs was on good form and dinner was Wagamama’s so a lovely evening. Am now shattered and have about an hour of stuff to do before bed. Am bunking off friday once my morning meeting is done, so hope to catch up a little on various Un:Bound commitments then.
