Victoria Sponge Cake with Cardamom, Rose Cream & Rhubarb

Beautiful Victoria Sponge with Cardamom, Rose Cream and Rhubarb
I have met a thoroughly lovely lady through Twitter – Vanessa Kimbell.  One heck of an inspirational lady she gave up work in May 2010 with a plan – to write a cookery book in one year and so Prepped! was born.

Cheese & Onion Bread

Cheese & Onion Bread

There’s nothing more my boys love than a steaming bowl of hearty homemade soup with a good helping of bread for dipping in it.  This cheese and onion bread is delicious dunked, on it’s own or made into a butty!

1 onion, diced
25g butter (1 knob)
450g strong white plain flour
200g mature cheese, grated
1tsp salt
1tsp caster sugar
1tsp fast acting dried yeast
200ml  milk
100ml water
25g butter, melted

Sautee the chopped onion gently in the pan with the butter until soft.
