Thank you to those who posted recipes I can tell you it is Wednesday here and I read this post quite early got in and baked the fruit crumble for breakfast that Tracey suggested as i had all the ingredients on hand!! YUM
I made slab cake on Sunday and iced it differently and used different flavoured cake and that was fantastic - what a simple idea. Fruit slice this afternoon thank Lyn.
Ths is actulaly fun I have made more time to cook these things - so maybe time wasn't the issue perhaps motivation. Whatever it is -thanks girls (and the children thank you)!!
PS: The reason I had cake mix in the cupboard is because I make a really simple dessert with it. SO as you shared your heres mine................
Upside down fruit cake:
One packet of butter cake mix
One can of fruit
However many eggs the packet mix says.
How you do it:
put packet mix in a bowl add egg(s) add juice from can of fruit (eg pineapple)
place powdered ginger and cinnnamon in the bottom of a greased cake tin place sliced pineapple on top - put cake mixture on top of this and whack in the oven for the designated time (usually 25 minutes at 180 degrees C.
Turn out and voila Pineapple upside down cake!!!!!!! For about $2.50 Aus.
Use different spices for different fruits eg: pears cinnamon and allspice
peaches star anise.
OR the other favourite quick standby is:
Cherry flat Cake ( not very inspringin but you will see what I mean when you make it)
one packet of butter cake mix
1 can of sour cherries DRAINED (or a cup and half of frozen berries)
1 250 ml carton of sour cream
whack the sour cream and cake mix in a bowl - mix well
fold in cherries or berries
whack in a greased cake tin and cook for about 25 minutes on 180 degrees C.
It won' t rise (hence the flat cake description) serve cold with cream for a luscious - aren't-I-a-fantastic-cook dessert.
have a great day
