From the other book which was produced by the people of Ruakaka and the Ruakaka Community Library I have made the 5 minute Chocolate Cake. You cook this in the microwave, it is fun watching it rise right before your eyes. They call this the most dangerous cake recipe in the world-why because you are only 5 minutes away from chocolate cake. I also made the Beer Bread from this book, Yum is all I can say. As we have lots of citrus at the moment I decided to Make a pie. I am sure they won't mind if I share the recipe with you.
Lazy Lemon Pie---- soooo easy
100 gram melted butter
3/4 cup coconut
1/3 cup lemon juice (2-3 lemons)
1 cup milk
1 cup sugar
1/2 cup flour
Zest of 2 lemons
Preheat oven to 170 degrees. Place all ingredients in a bowl or processor and mix together.
Pour the batter into a 23cm pie dish.
Bake for 45 minutes or until top is golden and filling is set.
This pie is delicious and even tastes so much better cold the next day.
Growing and making your own food is so good for you. You don't have to battle the shops,no trying to find a parking spot and best of all you know what is in it.
