Loving the vintage vibe!

500g Beetroot (cook,drain,blend,cool), 250g self raising flour, 225g sugar, 1 teaspn baking powder, 2 eggs, 75 ml veg oil ( I use Olive oil), 75 ml milk and a handful of white Choc chunks.
Mix oil, eggs and sugar, add flour/baking powder, add cooled/blended beetroot, add milk.
Bake for about 20 to 30min on about 180. Check after 20min as ovens do vary. You'll get about 12 to 16 larger ones but this year I'm going to make mini muffin sized ones so I should get loads!

Primarily because we have a had a recent MOT bill ( boooo….).
Now I hate driving …I mean REALLY hate it.
I only started driving again recently after a break of about 20 years, lost my nerve after a couple of accidents ( and no I wasn’t driving at the time). A patient driving instructor has got me on the road again with a refresher course. Now I know I can actually drive ok, but still don’t want to ….and after years of not doing it find it had to build it into my life!
However I do like stylish cars and loved being driven in the Citreon DS we used to have. Our best moment was when after a heavy rain storm a section of road was flooded – we just set the hydraulic suspension on it’s highest setting causing the car to rise up higher than normal and just coasted thu’ causing some amazement – my niece wanted to know if it could fly too!
So anyway thought I’d do a car’y blog featuring some Folksy sellers and maybe give some ideas for more bloke’y Xmas pressie. Enjoy…..
