Like a woman marooned, I have lost count of how many days into the Easter holidays we are now. Not enough to see school bouncing towards me on the horizon like a big orange RNLI boat to rescue me anyways.
Although I am suffering (details perhaps in another post, not this one because this one involves food) I decided to take a good friend's advice and do a spot of baking with my sonshine.
'You can choose any cake-like thing from any of my cookery books,' says I airily, hoping for something tasty from Nigella, Sophie or Delia to snack upon whilst having a cup of afternoon tea. Instead his beady gaze alights on the P4/5 Cookery book - created by his classmates just before Easter and purchased by proud mothers everywhere - and the Chocolate Marshmallow Cake.
100 g butter
300g Rich Tea Biscuits (1 packet)
100 g marshmallows
25 g cocoa powder (just used hot chocolate powder)
50 g plain chocolate
50g white chocolate
Lick bowl - obviously.....
Sadly for us, the white chocolate just melted into a huge blob of white mush (to be fair, it was probably about the same age as Kevin, but treated with a lot less respect) so our covering was purely dark chocolate.
There is not one redeeming calorific feature in this cake, other than the fact it makes a small boy VERY happy for an hour or so.
