Make Summat Outta Nowt #4 Short and Sweets
So, I've had a couple of requests for really quick and easy sweet treats, something comforting to help us through these strange days-so here goes. Just don't blame me if the only thing that fits when this is over are your Pyjamas!
This first recipe came from my son Adam, sweet treats are way down my list of priorities when i'm shopping, so he's had to learn to fend for himself from a young age! There's also a great recipe for doughnut eggy bread, yum.
