We’ve had a productive 24 hours at the Bear House. Baby bear seems to have finally cracked the potty training malarkey. Big Bear has finally done his literacy homework. Mummy Bear has finally taken the various broken parts of her engagement ring to the jewellers to be fixed. And we now have a random wedding cake sat in the kitchen.
All in all that counts as a successful day in the Bear House. Although often successful days are just about any day where everyone gets more than four hours sleep, and nobody needs their head stitching back together.
But now it’s time to get back to the Challenge. Granny Bear has even leant her mixer to me so we are good to go.
Here are Stem Ginger Shortbread Biscuits, made EXACTLY to the Comic Relief Bake Off recipe (except these are square, not round because I want them to fit in a box). and surprisingly nice.
They didn’t sound the most appetizing recipe in the book, but it turns out the ginger really isn’t that strong, and the stem ginger gives it a really fresh taste.
Also I wanted to choose one that didn’t have the word ‘sticky’ in the title. You’d be surprised, 4 of the titles have the word ‘sticky’ in them.
EDIT: I’m lying, the brownies are ‘squidgy’ not ‘sticky’
