You’re hungry. That goes without saying (you are a swimmer, after all).
Mother’s Day is tomorrow. You’ve been procrastinating….
How do we solve the two problems at the same time? Here are a few SwimSwam mothers’ recipes that you could make for your own mother … with plenty to go around so you get fed as well.
My Mother’s Brownies (I always double the recipe!)
- 2 cups sugar
Melt, then cool:
- 4 oz chocolate
- ½ cup butter
Beat until light:
- 4 eggs
- ¼ teaspoon salt
Add the sifted sugar gradually. Continue to beat until these ingredients are light and creamy. Fold in the melted mixture and:
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
Sift and add:
- 1 cup all-purpose flour
Beat the batter until it is just smooth. Fold in:
- 1 cup nut meats
Grease and flour a 9×13-inch pan. Pour in the batter. Bake in a moderate oven 325° for about 30 minutes. When it is cold cut into oblongs or squares.
My Mother-in-Law’s Crêpes
- 250g flour (about 2 cups)
- Pinch of salt
- Tablespoon of olive oil
- 4 eggs
Mix together, then add
- ½ liter milk (2.1 cups)
You can then fill the crêpes with jam, Nutella, sugar, or whatever you fancy.
