Rainy day blues

These dreary, cold, wet winter days make me feel like I’m in danger of coming down with something. You’ve got to look after yourself. ConQEST is only 2 weeks away and we don’t want you missing it because of the flu.

Miss Vivi’s suggestion – get into the lemons and ginger.

Gingerbread Cake with Lemon Icing
3/4 cup golden syrup
3/4 cup water
185g butter
1 1/4 cups plain flour
1 1/2 tsp bicarb soda
1 1/2 tbsp ground ginger
1 1/2 tsp all spice
3/4 cup self raising flour

Gingerbread Cake
Straight out of the oven - yum!

Melt syrup, water and butter together. Mix into dry ingredients. Bake at 180C for 25 mins.

Lemon Icing

1 tbsp milk
1 tsp butter
1/4 cup icing sugar
zest of a lemon
juice of 1/2 lemon

Melt butter into milk. Mix in icing sugar and zest. Thin with lemon juice to right consistency.  Drizzle over a slice of cake.
