It was Festival Friday on the show! And we had great live music from the Original Rudeboys, and some delicious food from Louise Lennox
Here are the yummy recipes that Louise made for us today....
BBQ S’Moore Whoopie Pies
300g self-raising flour
2 teaspoons bread soda
40g cocoa powder
75g dark chocolate - melted
180g caster sugar
1 large egg
50ml sunflower oil
70ml boiling water
10 large marshmallows
10 squares Cadburys caramel
Preheat oven 170ºC
Sieve self-raising flour, bread soda and cocoa powder together. Put all the ingredients for the whoopee pie into a large bowl and whisk together.
Line two baking trays with baking parchment. Put 10 spoons of the mixture on each tray. Leaving plenty of space in between.
Bake for 12- 15 minutes until tops are puffed up and the cakes spring back when touched. Carefully remove the whoopee pies from the tray. Cool on a wire rack.
Cut the marshmallows in half and stuff with a piece of caramel. Sandwich marshmallows together with a stuffed marshmallow. Place in a foil tray, cover with tin foil. Cook on the BBQ away from the direct flame until the marshmallows and caramel begin to melt.
Eat at once.
