I thought i’d make some cookies for some guests who are coming round at 3pm. I couldn’t find the cookie recipe but *oh look* here’s a flapjack recipe!
So without checking whether i had all the ingredients, i merrily started melting some butter, sugar and golden syrup. Nice. Then i discover i don’t have enough sultanas. Oh well, i’ll chop up some dried apricots, that’ll do! Then i discover i don’t have enough oats!! It’s too late to stop now!! What can i use? Aha, i know! Breakfast cereal! YAY! I also forgot to put any spices in (usually ginger or cinnamon or mixed spice) but from licking out the saucepan, i think it will taste just delicious as it is!
Hurrah for make-it-up-as-you-go-along baking! ;)
