HERE IS A RECIPE FOR SOME CHRISTMASSY "BARS" IF ANYONE LIKES MARZIPAN. IT'S VAGUELY STOLLEN-LIKE BUT MORE FUN AND FATTENING.


Set the oven to 170°C.


Line a 20cm square cake tin with foil.


Then:-


Take 175g sugar, 75g softened unsalted butter, 125g full fat cream cheese, 1 tsp lemon extract, 3/4tsp (three quarters not 3-4!) mixed spice, the same of ground cardamom seeds, 2 tblsp candied peel. Beat all together until smooth.


1egg, beaten, added to the above.


75g ground almonds, 100g sultanas, 100g shelled pistachio nuts, all stirred in to the mix.


250g strong white bread flour, 1 tsp baking powder. mixed together and stirred into the mixture.


250g marzipan chopped into 1" chunks, kept aside.


Divide the mixture into two with very wet hands. Keeping your hands wet, press half the mixture into the cake tin until it is flattish. Scatter the marzipan on top. With very wet hands, press the other half of the mixture on top of the marzipan to cover it. Flatten it out a bit.


Bake for 30-35 minutes until golden. Leave to cool a bit then brush with lots of melted butter and sprinkle icing sugar over the top.


When cold, cut into slices. and then into bars.


VERY VERY MOREISH.

OH DEAR, RB, I HATE PLUMBING AND ITS ASSOCIATED WATERY ADVENTURES. IT'S NERVE WRACKING.  HOPE EVERYTHING IS CALM NOW.


HELLO TOPBIRD. ALL I REMEMBER ABOUT MR MUSCLE'S RETIREMENT IS THAT HE FOUND HIMSELF SUDDENLY AT A LOOSE END FROM NINE TILL SIX AND BEGAN TO TRY TO TAKE OVER "MY" JOBS. I SOON PUT HIM RIGHT ON THAT, MUCH AS I APPRECIATE THE OCCASIONAL BIT OF HELP WHEN I ASK FOR IT. NOWADAYS WE ARE A COUPLE OF SLOTHS AND HAPPY TO BE SO.


KEEP BALING, MU.


NEW NEIGHBOURS. OURS HAVE BEEN HERE TWO YEARS AND I DON'T THINK I HAVE SAID MUCH MORE THAN HELLO TO EITHER OF THEM. NOT SO MUCH NEIGHBOURS AS PEOPLE WHO HAPPEN TO LIVE NEXT DOOR. 


WE HAVE TO GO INTO CHESTERFIELD TOMORROW AND THE FORECAST IS FOR GALES AND POURING RAIN. LUVVERLY.
