Food related stuff I’ve spotted on the Intertubes V

Looking for songs about food can take you to interesting places, so remember kids eat your vegetables! 😉

Possibly the best design ever for a pizza oven

For a gadget geek like me I have to say this is quite possibly the coolest kitchen gadget ever I wonder if I could get one for a product test. LOL

Now it’s only really since starting in college that I’ve become interested in baking but it’s amazing just how far you can take a cake.

And once again I’m going to leave the last word to our crazy friends in the USA and their love of the state fair has brought us some truly horrendous “food stuffs” in 2010. Check out the top ten here.

Recipe: Lemon Cake

Freshly cut Lemon Cake
Freshly cut Lemon Cake

Ingredients;

For the sponge:

170g softened butter
170g caster sugar
2 eggs
170g self-raising flour

For the icing:

Freshly-grated rind of 1 lemon
Freshly-squeezed juice of 1-2 lemons (I used the juice of one and a half lemons, so add the juice of one and then taste)
110g caster sugar


Preheat your oven to 180 degrees Celsius.

Put the butter, sugar, flour and eggs into a bowl, or into the bowl of a food mixer. Mix gently to combine.

Spread the mixture evenly into a well-greased Swiss Roll tin or a 9-inch cake tin. Bake in the preheated oven for 20-25 minutes, until golden-brown and well-risen.

Meanwhile, mix the icing ingredients together, and pour over the sponge as soon as it comes out of the oven and leave to cool. Cut into squares/slices and serve.
