Remember when you were little and your mum let you lick the spoon after she'd finished making the cake mix, or the icing? Or, even better, you'd get to run your finger around the mixing bowl and scoop up the left over mix into your mouth?
Gawd I used to love that.
Nothing like 'hands on' eating!
My mum made (and still makes) the best cup-cakes in the world. Back then, we called them 'fairy cakes', and sticking my finger in the bowl and scooping up bits of that mixture, and then the yummy icing later on from another bowl was just heaven.
So....... when was the last time YOU licked the spoon, or scooped up mixture out of a bowl?
I found this yummy recipe for Raspberry Crumb Brownie Bars a while back, and the pic with the spoon covered in raspberry sauce just got me to thinking....... geez it was such a simple and pure joy to 'lick the spoon'!
About time I did it again.
Check out this page on The Noshery for the whole recipe.
All I can say is..... MMMmmmm!
