This was a very good use for the vegan dark chocolate spread in my cupboard which goes out of date tomorrow…
75g (dairy-free) margarine (I use Pure)
tsp vanilla essence
1/4 tsp salt
75g (gluten free) flour
1/2 tsp baking powder
Mix all of the above together in that order (but whisk the eggs before adding them to the sugar and margarine)
Pour mixture into a cake tin (mine is about 6 inches square)
Swirl 100g chocolate spread in – don’t mix too much or it ruins the marbling effect!
Bake for 25 minutes at 150C
Yum. I may or may not have already had two pieces 😛
I also hemmed one of my favourite skirts earlier – I’ve had a very domestic day! I worked on a multimedia exercise for my course for an hour too. At the moment I seem to be alternating between having one really productive day where my course is concerned and one day where I just procrastinate endlessly! Yesterday I wrote notes on 15 pages of a textbook, today I just played with Lissajous figures for an hour (the program I was using was faster and more fun than the one I just linked to 😛 )
Tomorrow I have therapy at 1pm and then an appointment with one of the fitness trainers at the gym at 3.15. He’s going to create a personal workout programme for me, which is rather exciting!
It is raining, my mood is really low, I wish I was in York, I wish it was three years ago and I was doing OT again, I am lonely, I think I was wrong in thinking that I had outgrown my soya intolerance, and I have nothing to do for the rest of the evening. Rawrrr.
Still…three good things about today:
1. Homemade cake 😀
2. Dinner – smoked tofu, onions, mushrooms, olives, sauteed oh OK, fried 😛 in olive oil, soya sauce and honey, in a homemade wrap spread with tomato puree. Sounds weird, tastes wonderful! I have some really odd comfort foods…
3. Julie tomorrow – I usually see her on Fridays but it’s her birthday this Friday so she’s having a day off. Maybe I’ll take her some of my cake!
