if you go onto the "money saving expert forum" they have a recipe section on the "old style" forum.. its great..theres tons of recipes all that are pretty low cost but mostly scrummy!!
if you type in Old Style Recipe Index in the search part it should bring it up..
so me and the oldest boy thought we would make some gorgeous chocolate brownies with the base that's made from wheetabix... that's right wheetabix. it sounds a little strange doesn't it..but these are just gorgeous.. i love em.. they are so versatile as well .. you can put dried fruit in, nuts.. or just lots of different chocolate chunks.. hmmm I'm salivating as i type here!!
you will need four crushed up wheetabix.. ( get the little ones to smash them up..great fun!!)
( oldest boy is using the pestle from my pestle and mortar to smash up the wheetabix..going so fast you can hardly see him!!)
4oz caster sugar
4oz self raising flour
2tbsp cocoa powder ( i normally put more in for extra chocolaty goodness!!)
a packet of chocolate drops ( but you can just buy a big bar of chocolate and smash this up to!..Asdas own dark chocolate works very well for this!!) ...and anything else you want to add e.g fruit, walnuts, etc
mix all this up together and then take
4oz melted butter/marg
stir both into the mixture...
pop into a baking tray .. i use a smallish raised lipped oven tray so that the mixture can rise a bit
you can use whatever really just depends how big you want it or how deep..
either stick in grease proof paper or whack a bit of butter around the dish with your pastry brush!
bake in oven for 15 mins on about gas mark 7
