We are running low on bread this morning and as we are only going out when really necessary I thought I’d experiment with making my own…and here it is freshly baked cornbread with scrambled eggs and chilli oil…I’ve never made it before but was so simple and have loads left to keep me going, I searched a few different recipes online and managed to find one using what I already had in the cupboard!
Have a look online for loads of ideas and different types, I just added a bit of strong grated cheese to mine before popping it in the oven.
Let me know how you bake yours…
Happy Sunday x
Showing someone you love them shouldn’t cost the earth, so why not make a batch of these lovely little biscuits and get creative with your icing and sprinkles.
These are made using a recipe given to me at Christmas by my friend Maya, for full easy, cheap recipe please click the link and adapt the recipe by using lots of heart cookie cutters instead and dashings of red icing! Fun to make with little ones too…
Inspired by Austria – Maya’s Butter Biscuits
