We had our first knitting group meet at my house today which was fun. Hopefully I managed to teach how to cast on and knit stitch. Next meet will be on Monday 1st of July (Tottenham). Let me know if you interested, beginners are welcome!
The sweet treats are to be had off course! The recipe is bellow
I had lots of rhubarb in my garden (the only thing that does not get eaten by snails) so I baked my mum’s favourite apple tart with rhubarb (of course) instead of apples.
Ingredients: 200g unsalted butter
6-8 tbsp sugar
2 egg yolks
15-20 tbsp flour
8 chopped rhubarb stalks
6 tbs brown sugar
1. Preheat the oven to 170C.
2. Cream butter with sugar and mix it together with egg yolks.
3. Gradually add flour (I usually start with 15 tbsp and then see how the dough is reacting to it). The goal is to get the dough soft but not too sticky. So the less flour you can handle the better!
4. Roll out the dough flat on floured surface. Line baking tin with the dough (line baking tin with baking paper first if needed or just a butter is enough).
5. In the pan, melt sugar and cook chopper rhubarb stalks for few minutes.
6. Add the “rhubarb” contents into the tart.
7. Bake for 30min until the top looks slightly golden.
8. I Added meringue and baked for further 30min, but it should be nice on its own too or couple of scoops of vanilla ice-cream… hmmm
