Snacks and Deserts
Treehouse Tried and Tested
We have been aware for some time that some of you have been viewing our blog and salivating; some parents have had to tolerate entreaties from their children to cook at home something they enjoyed at lunchtime; whilst friends of ours have had to withstand our constant barrage of praise regarding our lunchtime feasts!
All of which has led us to bow to pressure and share some of these recipes with you…so from time to time we will add a recipe, or link to a recipe for you to try for yourselves….
Celery and Cheese Loaf
Makes 6-8 slices
250g SR flour
1/2 tsp salt
2 sticks celery, finely chopped
100g grated Cheshire cheese
1 clove garlic, crushed
1 beaten egg
Preheat oven to 190
Grease a 2lb loaf tin
Melt half the butter and gently sauté the celery and garlic, covered until soft.
Rub in the remaining butter into the flour and salt.
Add the cooked celery and grated cheese, lightly mix, then add the egg and milk and mix into a soft dough.
Shape into an oblong and pop into the tin.
Bake for one hour until golden brown.
Best enjoyed warm with lashings of butter! Yum yum
This freezes really well.
