Here is a recipe we love.  Less sugar and egg than a standard fruit cake.  It's quick and easy.

Fruit tea loaf

Line a 2lb loaf tin.  Preheat oven to 180 degrees C

8oz self raising flour
pinch salt
4oz caster sugar
4oz margarine
2 eggs
4 tablespoons semi skimmed milk
8oz dried fruit
half teaspoon each cinnamon and ginger or grated zest of an orange

place flour, salt and margarine in a bowl and rub margarine into flour (or use a food processor)
add sugar and fruit and spices and mix well
beat eggs with the milk and add to the dry ingredients
mix well so make a soft consistency
transfer to loaf tin
sprinkle top with a little sugar if desired to make a crunchy topping
Bake for 45 minutes

Saukeraut, did you ever find out what it is?

It's German in origin.  Shredded white cabbage, salted and packed in white vinegar.  Tried it, but not to my taste.

Hope this can give an answer.

Need some ideas for main meals ladies instead of the same old stuff I churn out !

Give me some inspiration please  ::)
If you don't mind carbs this is a quick but delicious one I made up - you can vary according to your tastes.

Large bunch cherry tomatoes- keep on vine
1 packet feta cheese
Small packet of Parma ham ( any cured Italian ham will do)

Pasta - spaghetti/tagliatelle or whatever you prefer I've tried most with this recipe

Drizzle tomatoes with plenty of olive oil and roast for 20/25 mins
Boil pasta to your liking - I like al dente
tear ham apart into smallish pieces and fry quickly in olive oil until crispy
Remove vine from tomatoes and press them lightly with a potato masher to bring juices out
Add pasta to ham in pan
Add tomatoes and juice
Add crumbled feta and stir😋 Serve with salad and garlic bread

Here's one of my favourites.
One small cauliflower boiled till soft then chopped roughly.
One jacket potato with a knob of butter
A couple of tablespoons of shop bought curry sauce or you can be braver than me and make your own curry sauce lol
Heat the sauce and mix with the cauliflower
spoon over the jacket potato.
Tuck in,a really nice lunchtime treat that I enjoy.xx

Just discovered Salmon Pasta with mascapone/tomato vodka sauce...easy , yummy and a bit different, the vodka gives it a kick

For the sauce:
Chopped flat smoked salmon
Two big spoons mascapone cheese
Passanda tomato sauce (in a carton) or can tomatos or half a jar any plain tomato sauce
Half tin kidney beans (or adzuki beans or broad beans are nice too - both in tins!)
Magic ingredient....couple of caps of vodka
Dash worcester sauce
Lots of black pepper

Just mix above together & mix well with with cooked Tagliatelle or Linguine in a big saucepan

If you like salmon.
Two salmon fillets
Two tablespoons of sweet chilli sauce mix with two tablespoons of olive oil..
Salt and pepper salmon then pour over sauce
Wrap in tinfoil so no splashes and pop in oven 280 for around 20/25 mins
It tastes so beautiful served with new baby potatoes and broccoli.enjoy!

Lime drizzle cake (from Levi Roots’ Food for Friends) Ive made this cake many times and its really liked.

    125g butter
    225g self raising flour
    125g caster sugar
    2 eggs
    zest and juice of 3 limes
    juice of another 2 limes
    100g caster sugar

Rub the butter into the flour until it forms a breadcrumb like mixture, then stir in the 125g sugar, followed by the zest and juice of the first three limes, and eggs. Pour the mixture into a greased and lined 8×8″ square tin and bake at 180 degrees for about 30 minutes, or until risen, golden, and springy to the touch.

While the cake is baking, make the icing by stirring the remaining 100g sugar into the juice of the two limes. When the cake comes out of the oven, poke it all over with a skewer and then pour the lime sugar mix evenly over the top. Leave to cool then cut into squares.
