Snowed In!

I think there are far worse places you could be snowed in than the Jammy Coo which is just as well because for the last 10 days that's exactly whats happened!!

It's very fortunate that the ovens still work and I've been making delicious soups, Spicy Butternut Squash and Coconut', Broccoli and Stilton, Curried Parsnip and Apple, to name just a few and also some well needed treats in the form of Triple Chocolate Muffins! And of course all our popular regulars such as the ever popular Carrot Cake.

Lets face it now is not the time to count calories, pack 'em in is what I say...You'll need it with the temperatures dropping to Minus 11!!!

These Triple Chocolate Muffins are so easy to make so why don't you give yourself a treat and give them a go..

9oz Plain Flour
3oz Melted Butter
3oz Soft Brown Sugar
3tblsp Natural Yoghurt
2tsp Baking Powder
half tsp Bicarbonate of Soda
10oz Mix of Dark, Milk and White Chocolate Buttons
2 Eggs
1oz Cocoa

Method: Place all ingredients except the Chocolate Buttons in a food mixer and combine well, then add most of the buttons leaving a few aside to put on the top of each button before cooking.
Divide mixture into 12 muffin cases and place in oven at 180oc for 20 minutes and then ENJOY!XX
