Another one for the kids to make and the whole family to enjoy. Yummy jam tarts. You could use bought shortcrust pastry, but getting the kids to make their own, while a bit messy, would be worthwhile and of course licking the jam spoons would be their reward.
Inspired by my 9 year old granddaughter, who is cooking up a storm while isolated at home, this week I looked for recipes that kids would enjoy cooking. This one needs some peeling, some grating and some rolling – all easy things to do and it includes vegemite, so I thought that might be an added bonus……
I decided this week to hunt out recipes from Mum’s collection that you could make without flour, pasta or rice, which sadly panic buying wiped off the supermarket shelves last week. I found this Chocolate Almond Cake, it’s heavy on eggs, but if you have enough to make it I reckon it will cheer the family up.
This was one of the Women’s Weekly prize winning recipes that Mum saved, although I don’t think she ever made it as my father liked his fish fried in batter and wouldn’t have appreciated this spicy version. Ling fish fillets can be a bit bland though, so this is a great way to add a bit more flavour.
