Quicker Baked Potato

Try this method for speeding up the potato baking process (for a better texture than those that you microwave). Pre-heat the oven to 400. Place the potato in boiling water for 10 minutes. Bake for 30 minutes. This will cut the cooking time in half.


Bananas & Pancakes

desserts, low fat

1 large or 1-2 small bananas per
1 person
2 tablespoon lemon juice
2 tablespoon calvados, grand marnier or
1 cointreau
5 fl oz oz orange juice
2 tablespoon molasses sugar
1 egg
4 oz flour
10 fl oz oz lager beer

Make pancakes with lager, flour and egg, and cook in the normal way (I used a cooking spray to grease a non-stick frying pan). Fold each pancake in half, and then in half again, so it forms a quarter-circle (if you're as bad at cooking pancakes as I am, they'll come out in bits anyway - if so, pretend it didn't happen!), and place them in a large flan dish. Peel bananas, cut in half long-ways and in half again cross-ways, and place face-down on top of the pancakes. Put the remaining ingredients into a frying pan or small saucepan, and boil for 3-4 minutes, until just beginning to be syrupy. Pour over bananas and pancakes, and bake in a moderate oven (Mark 4 - 350 F) for 20-30 minutes. I served this with fromage frais (cream substitute) and a chocolate sauce, for which the recipe follows: Recipe by: Annabel Smith Converted to MM by Donna Webster
