Just cut up any leftover cooked braai meat (preferably including boerewors), bacon, deli meats etc. from days before into bite-size chunks ...


:roll: :roll: Obviously, you don't travel with three teenagers, 2 boys and a girl.... What is leftover meat? :whistle:

Sounds nice though...

30? And you have left-overs? Must be city/town kids then, used to green stuff and soy, not farm-bred, fed on meat... :mrgreen:

HP (by appointment of HRH the Queen) sauce seems to be disappearing from the local market - the local P & P as well as Spar supermarkets no longer display it .
Does any one notice the same ?
KNP is sacred. I am opposed to the modernisation of Kruger and from the depths of my soul long for the Kruger of yesteryear! 1000+km on foot in KNP incl 56 wild trails.200+ nights in the wildernessndloti-indigenous name for serval.

I have to share this with all the chocolate lovers out there!
It's my favorite baked chocolate pudding. Easy to make, rich, decadent and comes with it's own sauce. 8)

Quick Chocolate Pudding

60g butter or margarine
125g sugar
1 egg
1 tsp vanilla essence
1 large cup self raising flour
Half cup of milk

Cream butter and sugar, add egg and vanilla essence. Add milk and flour. Mix well.
Pour mixture into a deep ovenproof dish.

Sprinkle over the top of the mixture:
4 T cocoa powder
pinch of salt
1 heaped T sugar.
Carefully pour 2-3 cups of boiling water over. (Depending how thick you want the sauce to be, I use 3 cups).

Bake @ 180 deg C for 40 minutes.

If you really want to step out, serve with a dollop of fresh cream.

Let me know 'k?

Last night I was in no mood for cooking so they got a piece of boerie, salad and chocolate pudding for dinner. Oh my, let me tell you! I always make a double batch because the left overs is sooooo good for breakfast! :lol:

Cool Jen - thanks - can i just double the quantities and put it in a big dish then ? Sometimes doubling it doesnt work quite so well so I assume this is ok ? I think maybe for tomorrw night ...... :hmz: OR, I am having a beeeeg meet at my place on Sunday - does it need to be served hot ? thinking of the timeframe here or can i bake it and let it stand for a while ?? might not be such a good idea for a meet (28 people - how many will I have to make :D ?)

I'm not a fussy cook so I double, triple the quantities without thinking. :lol:
Yes, it comes out just fine!
Serving it hot from the oven is best. The sauce becomes thick when it cools down.

:hmz: 28 people? Hmmmm.... you might need a very large dish. I would say a single mix would serve about 6 people but this is definitely a second serving pud. :twisted:

:eviltreath: - ok so I think I am definately going to try this either tonight or tomorrow night and then I will see how many hungry people it feeds - might start off with a double batch tho :wink:

Tell me, did you ever convince your SO that the Nossob 4x4 trail in November was not to be missed ??

Vanilla Fudge
100g butter / margarine
500g icing sugar
1 tin condensed milk (397g?)
5 ml vanilla essence

Put the butter and icing sugar in a bowl and microwave on high for two minutes. Mix well. Add condensed milk. Microwave on high for 5 minutes. Stir. Microwave for another 5 minutes, but stir very regularly (it has a tendency of trying to boil over).
Add the vanilla essence, stir, pour into the buttered dish. Let it set.
