Fresh blocks and Golden Syrup pudding...

...best way to spend a gray and rainy Sunday? Yup! Friday started our block sewing on the Lucinda's Gift quilt-along, and I'm not sure how much I'll manage to sew in the evenings in the week to come, so I have tried to get most of my blocks done this weekend. 21 of this week's 24 blocks are laid out on the floor



Love the scrappiness of them! I have tossed everything and anything from my scrap box in there - regular quilter's cottons, muslins, homespuns and batiks in a bright mix. I think this will be a great quilt ;-) At least I'm having heaps of fun stitching the blocks!

While cutting and stitching I have been catching up on some MasterChef Australia, and on one of the episodes  the contestants were making Golden Syrup Pudding, I tasted this yummy dessert when I visited Rose, and I have had the recipe hanging on the fridge door. So I decided today was the day to try making it. However I did have to do some changes to the recipe due to my low-stocked fridge: I didn't have butter so I used margarine and I had to use yogurt instead of milk.



It came out looking pretty good, even if the top was a bit cracked. However it was quite soggy in the bottom, so I ended up cutting that part away. But with a big dollop of yogurt on the side the taste of what was salvageable was really yummy!



The sourness of the yogurt really played well with the golden syrup. Gonna try this again, and get it cooked a bit better. I usually share the recipe when I show some of my cooking, but since this isn't my recipe I'll let anyone interested e-mail Rose in stead :-)

EDIT: Rose has generously allowed me to share the recipe, so here it is:

Cake
1 egg
1.5 cups self raising flour (we don't have that in Norway, so I used regular flour and a tsp baking powder)
3/4 cup sugar
3/4 cup milk
40 g melted butter

Syrup
30 g butter
2 tbs Golden Syrup
2 cups boiling water

Mix together the cake mix. Combine syrup ingredients in a separate jug and pour over the cake mix. Bake in a 180 C oven for 40 mins. And e-mail Rose a bowl full!!!

Have a lovely Sunday!
Hugs and stitches from Anne Ida
