Baking Treat 1/ Scottish Treat Bread Pancake....

 The Power of the dandelion was shown to the tribes all around the world, Americas, Asia, Europe and Africa, but was Born in Scotland, the recipe, as the Masks taught and past down the Tradition of a "treat in Bread" to all the worlds tribes... As the Silver Wizard past it down to the Apprentice Artur and the Henge Clan.. In a world festival, as Masks past down the recipe to tribes for Scrolls of Knowledge in cooking, especially, FOR bAKING...... At the same time all in knowledge they past their Gifts of Food, The Chum Gang, led by Greedy Pig Chum...

 The History of the Dandelion.........................

        The dandelion plant is used for such things as a sweetner, gelotine, and the Dried Roots can be used as Biocabonate ingredient to rise flour when ground to flour grains.... The new leafs can be eaten raw for salads and the old leafs can be boiled for extras in your salad...... The plant and roots are used for healing purposes/ digestive disorders, infections and viruses and as in folk law remedies, as well as in Witchcraft Spells.... Such as for Wart or Skin problems.... It is used for problems such as bile, and liver conditions... It is used as a mild laxative and used to increase appetite.... You can use it as a hair dye, green and yellow or as in food colouring.... The milk latex is used for such things as in mosquito repellent.... IT IS A hERB..... Ingredients/ flavonoids/ luteolin = Biocabonate and sodas = api = age, open roots/ genin = genes of root = Apigenin.....

Iso quer citrin = Splits in quarters/ isolates/ Quer cetin = compounds to geletine, cetin = Set......

2/ Dandelion genes.... Caffeic acid, used as a supplement to coffee.... Chiorogenic... genes to split sound....... Also contains ter penoids = Wrip, oval split..... triter penes = Trace together/ build and ses quiter penes = Section, row =Breaks, splits, stops = ovali......

The masks tribes of the Scotia would split the dandelion in ground juice or ground flour of root.... They would congeal the liquids in sections as they would the ground root... Some of which would be used as Baking powder with flour.... And this is the Best Treat Bread in the world... You can fry and have eggs with your pancakes.. You can use, cream or jam or chocolate as a desert... Or simply use as bread.... The dandelion also was used as the first Honey substitute as in Syrup.. Which you can pour over your!

                  Scottish Treat Bread Pancake..... They also used the butter cup plant also, and with a mix of this and a mix of that, the Scottish pancake Was Born for all to Enjoy..... They would layer the juices, dry them out our keep them in liquid, then test the mix with grains for Baking..... This is : 

                       The Scotian Pancake

                   "The Scotian Treat Bread"

Ingredients:   225 (8floz) plain white flour....

Make a well in the centre of the flour and add the egg, golden syrup, and slowly add the milk as you whisk to create the exact consistency of thick cream... If your consistincy is to thick, add more milk. Thick but Smooth is required....... Test that the frying pan is of correct heat by sprinkling a little flour over the hot surface.... it should slowly brown... If it burns, the pan is to hot and needs to cool... When the temp is right dust of the flour and lightly rub some oil on the pan with a piece of kitchen towel.... Use oven gloves to protect your hands.... 3/ lift 1 tablespoon of batter mix, cleaning the back of the spoon on the edge of the bowl... drop the batter from the tip of the spoon onto the heated pan to make a round thick shape... once you have mastered the start you will be able to create any shape as in a love heart, a house, a car.. let your imagination grow wild....... One Scotian pancake at a time... Bubbles will appear at the surface, this is when you know when to toss your Scotian pancake as the bubbles burst, as the masks did, on race days.... to ensure extra browning as they cook, squish the pancake with your lifting flipper, gently squeezing.... When your Scotian pancake is ready, lift and place on your towel before covering and continuing to bake your treat Bread... Oil the pan very lightly as you continue with the Scotian Treat Bread... Make sure each treat bread is cooked and not raw in the Middle... They are best eaten warn, and they can be used with your eggs and ham in the morning or as a treat with ice cream or Jam, or as one massive sized treat bread, gently rolled for any filling you like...

                   "The Squishey Dishey Meal"

Greedy Pig Chum; IM mAKING Chummy Tummy his valentines Dinner.... Its our Anniversary on the 14th of Feb. We got tied 2006.. I picked him out the gutter from that so called Best friend of his, Chum Bum....... He was in a pub one night, well, sitting outside the Pub with a hat on, well, the hat was on the ground... And do you know what he said to me as i walked out with my friend after a meal... Do you want a chat up line, i staired at him. I must admit i thought i was seeing double that night.... I said yeh ok then, try your best..... Place a Pound in the hat he said... I thought for a moment, and my best friend "Tarty Farty Chum" "Skunk" She's a working girl of the street, but she's an undercover for Big tit... Said go for it.... So i did, i placed a pound in his hat... And do you know what he said... "I caiught you".... Its either that you would pay for anything... Im sorry Girls, but i just fell in love with him on the spot and the next day we bumped into each other on tit street, and we started chatting so i askled him for dinner... But i insisted he tidy himself up first... And thats how we met and this is 11 yrs later.... anyway here is what im cooking him for Valentine's....

             The Valentine's Squishey Dishey

  "Starters and Afters, if you know what i mean"

First of all i got a bowl and melted some jelly in it......

I took out the biscuit holder of the Biscuits from my fravourite biscuit tin, "Choc mint"... I waited until the Jelly had cooled half hour in the fridge... Then poured it in the plastic biscuits casing... I then sprinkled some smarties in each funnel of Biscuits... I Then placed the jelly in the fridge for the next day... Health and safety... Make sure the jelly is cool before pouring out onto the plastic Biscuit funnels........ Next I got some Beef meat cubes out of the Fridge... I washed the Beef then cut any fat i found on the cubes... I then placed them in a pot... I Boiled the beef for 40mins to an hour.. Then drained the water from the pot: I had a pastry Block, which i rolled out with my rolling pin, dusting a light bit of plain flour on the roll.. When i had the size of the Cassarole heart dish which i am cooking in for Chummy Tummy.....  I cut out the pastry with an Inch to spare all round to tuck and fold when beef is placed in the dash... Turn on the oven t0 200 oc... Warm oven up for 20mins... Place Beef in you cassarale... Cut an onion, and place cuttings in amongst the Beef... Add a teaspoon of vinager and add some Golden Syrup to the mix... Then add after desolving some gravey in a bowl some beef gravey, bisto does the trick... But slightly water so the beef steams in the oven while it cooks...  Pour in the gravey to the Dish for the oven... You can add peas and carrots its your choice... Ive decided not to...... While you maranade your dish before placing in the oven add a teaspoon of soy sauce "Blue Dragon", peel some potatoes and boil, then mash...  Cover your cassarole with your pastry, thumbing in the sides gentle before trimming off the outside... Place a fork in the middle of the pastry and spike some holes in a small i l u sign...  Now with the left over pastry or another block... Roll out six oblong parts of pastry... Open a couple of tins of tuna, then place three tablespoons of tuna in the middle of each pastry shape and a little Syrup, "remember to empty the tuna juice from the tuna chunks" the shape is really your choice, circle heart shape pastry,,,, its your choice... Then place the tuna pastry in the oven as well as your dish... Cook the pastry parts for 20mins or until golden Brown... Your Main Dish will need 30 to 40 mins, until Golden Brown... Check as you Go.... Now im ready to serve Tummy Chummy.... I have one more thing to do, take out the jelly and with squishy Cream place a squirt on top of each biscuit shape... This is for afters if you know what i mean Girls... A litle squishy for my little dishey...    "Maybe i should take my rolling pin" what do you say girls.... Lol... A Squishey Dishey Valentine's.....

Wait until toast pops up... Switch off the Toaster at the Mains, do not butter, but Run, run and run to work... "This is very good for people that have had a few the night before".... "SI-FI Chum recommendations... Do not take bread before you drink, Bread has yeast in it.. Although you can get Drunk Quicker with the Bread because of the Yeast despite, little amounts in a slice.. This Yeast can cause Small amounts of Blood Clotting, Which can cause major Health Problems to not only the Nervous System but Brain Clotting... You are always better with Crisps...
