And I give you "leftover porridge cake"
It's impossible to predict how much breakfast my three are going to eat, some days they eat the lot, others they barely touch it.
Today they just weren't interested but I decided not to waste it. I invented a very stodgy cake instead.
I mixed up half a cup of butter, a cup of sugar, a cup and bit of self raising flour (I'm really that precise!) a teaspoon of cinnamon, 2 eggs and the left over porridge (and out 2 cups worth i think. Oh and a good handful of currents (they're called yeah yeahs in this house for some reason). Mixed it all up and then split it between two 8 inch cake tins.
Cooked at 180 until done (about 20 minutes or so) not forgetting to turn your cakes round if your stupid oven cooks more one side than the other like ours does.
Then got them out the oven, put a bit of golden syrup on the bottom one and spread it round before plonking the other on top.
Tastes pretty good to me!
For bonus points, if you want to up the difficulty level of this cake, try doing it with a ten month old child clinging to your leg and using your trousers to wipe his snotty nose on. Makes it far more fun I can assure you. ..
