I just go down my local veg shop and get the cheap tomatoes that are about to go. You can get those mixed chicken thighs and legs packs – they work well. The fresh basil is pretty important – my local coop has them for around 50p. I add new potatoes (makes it a complete meal) but don’t bother with the beans (both are optional).
Put all in a dish, moosh it around a little and stick it in the oven. (Phil)
Very tasty, cheap and easy to make. (Mark)
We made a really lovely cake and it was really easy – you only need 6 oz self-raising flour, 6 oz stork margarine, 6 oz caster sugar; and three eggs – it’s a basic Victoria sponge recipe
Using a wooden spoon, put the stork margarine in a bowl and add one egg at a time to the creamed mix, with a spoon of flour with each egg.
Continue to mix until the mixture turns pale – place it in a greased cake (or loaf) tin in a moderate oven (170C gas 3) for around 40 mins.
Test that it’s thoroughly cooked by putting a knife through the centre. If the knife comes out clean the cake is done – if there is mix on the knife, pop it back in the oven and check it every ten mins or so.
I decorated mine with some icing and sprinkles – delish!
