You've got to try this with Stollen!

Just a quickie to tell the world about the lovely, easy breakfast I just ate.

This morning I found a few little pieces of Stollen and 2 mince pies in a tin in the back of the cupboard, maybe the last of the Christmas leftovers!  

I was going to make bread pudding with the stollen but then, having no particular breakfast in mind, decided to experiment.

I chopped up the Stollen poured over some double cream and baked for about 15 minutes in the oven preheated to  190ºC/375ºF/170ºC fan/gas 5.  And the result?

Gobsmackingly delicious (and rather naughty). Give it go sometime!

I’ve said it before, and I’ll … I’m so, so, so glad I can cook. 

Every day I eat food that is, for me at least, outstandingly delicious (not only can I cook, I also have a big head) yet it costs me very little and takes me hardly any time.  

Anyone who doesn't learn the crucial skill of cooking is a daftie!

I so agree with you! Cooking is easy, cost-effective, and results in delicious meals almost every single time. :)

I absolutely agree. The times that my hubby has gone into the kitchen for lunch and disconsolately wandered back out again, saying "there's nothing there!". Yet I've gone in there and in a few minutes of chopping, slicing and a bit of boiling, have emerged with a bowl of ramen noodles with veggies and an egg!

The difference is, that he's looking for something "instant", I'm looking to use up what needs using. :)
