Aldi Crowd Sourced Easter Cake Recipes!!

If you read my last post about Aldi Crowd Sourced Easter Cake and thought to yourself that you would like to give it a go here are some recipes to help you out with this mammoth task.

Baked Cheesecake 

For the base:
170g Greenvale unsalted butter, melted
280g Belmont Original Digestive Biscuits, finely crushed
2 tablespoons of The Pantry caster sugar

Preheat the oven to 180 degrees
Put the biscuits into a large bowl and crush with a rolling pin (or whizz in the food processor)
Melt the butter in a pan and stir in the biscuit crumbs and sugar to combine
Line a 23cm / 8inch deep spring-form cake tin with non-stick baking parchment – the bottom and sides need to be lined
Press the biscuit crumb mixture into the bottom of the tin and bake at 180 degrees for 10 minutes. Then remove from the oven and leave to cool.
Turn the oven up to 200 degrees in preparation for the filling

For the filling:
900g The Cheese Emporium soft cheese
250g The Pantry caster sugar
3 tablespoons of The Pantry plain flour
½ teaspoon of Stonemill salt
1 teaspoon of vanilla extract
1 teaspoon of The Pantry lemon juice
3 large Merevale eggs and 1 yolk
200ml Cowbelle soured cream

Put the cream cheese in a mixer and beat on a low speed for about two minutes, or beat with a wooden spoon. Add the sugar, flour and salt and mix gently to combine
Use a balloon whisk or the whisk attachment on your mixer or hand mixer to add in the vanilla and lemon. Then add the eggs and yolk one at a time, whisking well after each addition
Gently mix in the soured cream
Brush the insides of the lined tin with a little melted butter
Place the tin (with prepared base) onto a baking tray and carefully pour in the filling
Put into the centre of the preheated oven and bake for ten minutes. Reduce the temperature to 100 degrees and bake for a further 35 minutes. The mixture should be set but have a slight wobble if you move the tin.
Leave the cheesecake in the oven to cool for two hours
Remove from the oven and put in the fridge to cool overnight (or for at least 8 hours).

Aldi has revealed an incredible Crowd Sourced Easter Cake!!

Now I know you are probably thinking what the heck am I on about well,

The cake features 5 layers and a whopping 39 ingredients. 

The country's first ever 'crowd sourced' cake revealed today, was based on the findings of a study of over 2,000 people commissioned by supermarket Aldi, resulting in a monumental sweet treat, featuring 352 mini chocolate eggs.

Over a third (36%) of Brits said that chocolate sponge was the most likely to get their taste buds tingling, followed by
cheesecake (33%),
fruit cake (30%),
carrot cake (29%) and Victoria sponge (24%)

Disney Princess Palace Pets Walking and Wiggling Pet!!

If you read my blog often you would of seen our Palace Pets reviews which little madam loves,Well now we bring you another one but with a difference.

Disney Princess  Palace Pets Walking and Wiggling Pet - Treasure

Enter the magical realm of the Palace Pets, a world of loveable animals who adore spending time with their favourite Disney Princesses. These sweet pets are all different, but each one loves to be pampered, cuddled and cared for.
The difference between this one and all the others we have is that this one walks, wiggles and wags it tail when you pull it back. 

Little madam had lots of fun with this although we ended up having to keep the dogs away from it as they thought it was something to chase and eat which madam thought was really funny.It actually moves quite quick and we had it bumping in to walls and all sorts lol.
Apparently this is her favourite of all the palace pets her reason is that because it moves it is much more fun. 

Personally I think this is a great addition to the range and I can see lots of kids wanting to add this to Their collection of Palace Pets.I would 100% recommend this range to anyone. 

You can find out about this Palace pet and all the others on Character-Online.

RRP £9.99
Aimed at ages 4+

Homemade Scotch Eggs!!

My lovely hubby brought me a new toy for the kitchen which I have wanted for a while.

Electric meat grinder
First thing I decided to use it for was to make some home made Scotch eggs,but instead of just using sausage meat we decided to have a little of everything.
We took a little pork,beef chicken and turkey I know may not sound that appetising but believe me it was really good.
Add a little salt and some herbs wrapped it around the boiled eggs and covered in breadcrumbs.
We oven baked these as we were having them for the kids party we ran for Blaze and the Machines twitter party and I really do not like to fry a lot of things any more everything tastes better baked.

We cut them up for the kids and they all loved them and I have to admit they did taste really good.
Being able to make your own mince is the best since you are able to mince up any meat and mix them together to be able to make so many things.

This and my bread maker are my two favourite things in my kitchen.
