Cheese Scones by Novelty Matt

Breakfast

None :(

Lunch

None :(

Starter

Fried camembert

This is only recommended if you want to have a heart attack, they are amazingly bad for you, but so good.
Take the round straight from the fridge and cut in to about 8 pieces, double crumb as above; fill a frying pan 1/3 with oil, and warm on a medium heat.  Put the peices in the hot oil, and cook for about 5 mins until the bread crumbs are golden brown.  Drain on some kitchen roll and eat warm.

Squidgy Chocolate Brownies

300g Golden caster sugar
250g butter
250g 70% choccy (or be tight and use 100g 70% and 150g of dark)
3 eggs + 1 yolk
60g plain flour
60g cocoa
1/2 tsp baking powder

Preheat the oven to 180, or about 200 if you have a crap oven.

If you like walnuts, add them too

Grease a small baking tray type device, something with a bit of depth, Mr Slater says a 23cm square tin, but I don't have one of those; line the bottom with parchment/grease proof etc

You can either do this with a food processor, or like someone without one; the hard way...
Mix the suar and butter together until they are of a good consistency, nice and creamy, so they are properly intermingled
Next take 50g of the chocolate and chop it up in to gravel sized peices, put the other 200g in a bowl over a pan of boiling water and melt it down, take off the heat once it is melted.
Next get yet another bowl, break in the eggs and yolk and beat them together.
In another bowl (count: 4) sift the flour, baking powder and cocoa together.
Now, take the butterysweet mixture and slowly mix the egg in to the mixture bit by bit, I did it with an electric whisk and it makes it a lot easier!  Once the egg is introduced add the melted and chopped chocolate with a tablespoon, and finally fold in the flour mixture trying not to knock the air out.
Wack this mixture in the caketin, baking tray etc and put it in the hot oven for about 30 mins (or about 50) until the top has started to crack and become brownieish.  When cooling it should set somewhat so don't worry if it is quite squdigy.  You can test to see if it's done by pushing a fork in, it should be sticky, but not raw (duh).

Disgustingly Rich Chocolate Tart (11")

Recipe adapted from Jamie Oliver, who's quantities I feel are wrong.

Pastry:

160g butter
160g caster sugar
pinch of salt
280g of plain flour
1 1/2 eggs (don't ask how you work this out)
30g cocoa

Filling:

1/2 pint double cream
100ml whole milk
175g 70%+ chocolate (broken in to small pieces)
32g (or 30g if you have crap scales) caster sugar
1 egg

Tin: 11" Loose Bottom Tart (or any size tart tin you have, it works in any size amazingly)

To make the pastry cream the butter, sugar and salt together, then fold in the flour, egg and cocoa.  When it's' like breadcrumbs work it into a ball of dough, and flour it.  Apparently overworking it will make it chewy.. Wrap in clingfilm and put in the fridge for an hour; roll it out so it's big enough to go in the tin (I recommend a silicon (sp?) mat else it will stick to everything), and put it in the tin going right up the edges and push it over, thus removing the excess, and making a tart shaped pastry case.  Now put it in the freezer for 30mins, after this put the case in the oven, it will shrink (it will be come out about half the height) for 15mins at 180 degrees C, until it is biscuity (or don't bother it's nice when its soft!)  While it's cooking mix the cream, milk and sugar together in a pan, bring to the boil, take off the heat and add the chocolate, whisk in, add the egg and whisk so it doesn't scramble, then pour in to a jug.  Once the case is done pour the filling in to the top and put it back in the oven, turning it down to 170, leave for 15-20mins until it starts to 'split' on the top.  Take out and leave to cool, then eat very small amounts.   

If you can't be bothered to make it, or don't trust me, samples (most of a whole tart) will be at SPLOSH.

Bobotie - for Maggie

Serves 6

25g butter
1 tbsp oil
1 large onion, finely chopped
1 apple, peeled, cored and chopped
1 tbsp curry powder
50g white breadcrumbs
300ml milk
900g lean minced beef or lamb
40g flaked almonds
75g sultanas
Juice and zest of 1 lemon
1 egg, beaten

Topping - 2 eggs


1.   Preheat the oven to 180C/350F/Gas 4
2.   Cook the mince and put aside. Soak the bread in the milk.
3.   Melt the butter and the oil and fry the onion, apple and curry powder for 5 minutes.
4.   Mix the above with the meat. Drain the breadcrumbs, press out the milk and reserve.
5.   Add the bread to the meat. Stir in the almonds, sultanas, lemon juice and zest, plenty of salt and pepper, and the egg.
6.   Grease a large deep dish and spoon the mixture into it. Press down to pack tightly.
7.   Make the topping - beat the reserved milk with the eggs, season and pour over the meat mixture.

It?s very nice with roasted vegetables and a few tatoes

A few people have asked for this so:

Pork & Apple Pie

Ingredients

1kg Pork chopped into pieces (tesco do a good pack of steaks that i usually chop up)
3/4 normal apples (not cooking apples, not as good)
50g Butter
Sprinkle of brown sugar
Can/bottle of cider

For pastry

50g Butter
200g Flour
Bit of water

Peel, core and chop apples. Mix with the pork in a pie dish. Cut the butter into cubes and spread over top of mixture. Sprinkle brown sugar over the top. Drink half the cider and then pour the remaining half over the pie mixture.

Pastry: Rub flour and butter together until it looks like bread crumbs. Add water and mix until it looks like a big lump of pastry (a few tablespoons should do it) Roll it out and put it on top of the pie stuff. Brush with egg.

Cook at about 200 C until the pastry is brown, brushing with egg once more (after about 15 mins) This worked in our oven at the house of meat but needed more cooking time at my parents house. Just make sure the pork is cooked so you don't get illnesses  :P

it depends on the type of pastry and the presence of sufficient gravies - the sides and bottom need to be moist and stodgy whilst the top can be dryer and crisper. it's all about the contrast people!
