I have recently bought a LUMINA breadmaking from Aldi and today it gets the try out.
Making a Fruit Loaf and using a white bread mix recipe, adding mixed fruits and other goodies when the machine beeps.
anyone have a tried and tested fruit loaf recipe they would like to share?

On the subject of recipes, at my Book Club meeting yesterday, we all loved a Vanilla Slice, which is made using Arnotts Lattice Biscuits, as the base and top, with the filling of cream and packet of vanilla pudding mix.
You lightly whip 600ml of thickened cream, add the packet of pudding mix, and then beat till it is well combined. Pour this over the biscuit base, top with the remaining Lattice Biscuits (glazed side on top), and put in the fridge to set. Very yummy and hard to stop at one piece!!

The ladies in the group are all good cooks, so we are always trying out new recipes.

This morning I have also baked a BLUEBERRY AND PECAN BREAD, the recipe was featured in the Summer 2007/2008 issue of Natural Health and Vegetarian Life magazine.
Looks good sitting on the cake rack to cool, so the proof will be in the tasting.

When the cooking session is finished, I will get back to my family research, which has taken a back seat for a few months as I catch up with other interests.

FAMILY HISTORY RESEARCH is a wonderful hobby and be prepared to find out details that may not always please the family. A wonderful offshoot of your research is that you will become interested in the history side of things, and want to read stories about the places and events that your ancestors would have experienced.
SBS TV has been showing the first episodes of the BBC Series "Who do you think you are" - the Australian version starts this Sunday, the 13th January 2008 (7.30pm and I recall that Jack Thompson is to be the personality finding out about his ancestors).
