Anyways.... I got to play yesterday. With my newest most fun appliance! The lovely people at Braun sent it to me last week with a little shopping basked full of goodies. It was like Christmas had come early!
It's a cordless stick blender and mini food processor. I'm LOVING it. As we all know my food processor is on it's last legs and I only wish I had it last week when I made homemade nutella. I have been busy though - it's lovely and powerful and for me, cordless is fabulous because my island bench where I do most of my cooking has no power on it. (Annoying!)
Anyhow. I'm told they're going to be available from 1st November and will retail at $249. Thanks again Braun, I love it!!
OK, onto lunchbox legends this week... I wanted to make something summery and even though peaches aren't in season yet, I still indulge in tinned peaches. (This year I'm going to preserve them, promise) So this is a great recipe you can make from pantry ingredients! The peaches add the sweetness and the coconut and oat make it filling - but all in all it's lovely and light.
2 cups self raising flour
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/4 cup shredded coconut
3/4 cup rolled oats
3/4 cup milk
1/4 cup canola oil
10 tinned peach halves, drained (reserve liquid)
Preheat oven to 190 degrees c
In a bowl, mix flour, coconut, oats and brown sugar together
Mix it round, and create a well in the centre. Add milk, egg and oil and mix until all well combined.
Chop your peaches up, or quickly process them - this literally took 5 seconds!
Add peaches to your mix. Mix through and if the mixture seems a little dry, add a little peach nectar/syrup and mix until you get a cake-mix type consistency.
Place in cake papers/muffin papers about 3/4 full (this made 18 cupcake sized muffins for me)
Bake for 20-25 minutes until golden brown on top.
Store in airtight container for 3-4 days. Or freeze for up to 2 months.
And look how easy it is to clean!! Put the foot back on the processor, hang it on the recharge stand, and pull the processing bits apart, clean and drain - no fiddly bits that get things caught in them! Love!
