My wee bottle of Grand Marnier
I made a resolution this year to eat more cognac filled chocolates. Also to bake more desserts and breads for MrBP and The Rascals.
|My breadboard at the ready.|
MrBP loves these with a coffee.

Boil 1 heaping cup of dried sour apricots with 1 cup of water and 2 tablespoons of organic sugar for 10 minutes, then set aside...
Preheat your oven to 350 and mix together the following:
1 cup ground almonds
3 medium eggs (or 2 large)
1 cup organic sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 teaspoon ground cardamom
1 and 1/4 cups of extra smooth ricotta cheese
|Careful not to burn yourself.|
Once your cake is golden looking and cooked through (mine took 35 minutes) remove from the oven and let cool for a few minutes. Grab a plate and place on top of the cake, then with a skilled deft motion flip the whole thing upside down. Peel away your paper and voila!
I'm keeping procurement for the household to a minimum this year but one item I have purchased will help me along with my New Year's Resolution (not the cognac filled chocolate resolution... the baking resolution).
My new one is "Willow Blue". Do you have one of these deluxe treat machines, and if so which colour?
I hope your New Year is off to a brilliant start. Let's make 2014 a good one.
