Sadsac’s Nut Brittle‎

TRH Sadsac's Nut Brittle‎
Only 3 ingredients.
Any nuts can be used but I made this batch with whole almonds with their skin on.

2 cups almonds
2 cups granulated sugar
1/4 teaspoon bicarbonate of soda
1 large baking tray greased and lined.

Place almonds and sugar into a large non stick frying pan on now medium to high heat stirring the entire time till sugar has completely melted.
Then turn the heat onto high and add the bicarbonate of soda stir in well for 30 seconds. Remove from heat and pour mixture into baking tray and with a spatula spread the mixture as thin as possible and leave to set and cool about 20 – 30 minutes.
Once set break into snack size pieces and place in an airtight container.
This brittle can also be crushed and used for a crunchy topping on ice cream it used to decorate a cake or used in muesli or just enjoyed as a snack.

Amina’s Subs Dough

TRH Amina's Subs Dough

5 cups flour,
1 pkt yeast,
1/4 cup sugar,
1tsp salt
1 cup milk
½ cup oil,
1 cup boiling water (allow water to stand for 5 min)
1 egg.

I prepare this in my Kenwood machine.
Once risen, punch down and roll into desired shape.

One tip. For any dough recipe that requires milk, I always add about ½ cup extra milk (thus use 1½ cups of milk) and use less water, as more milk makes ones dough much softer.
Once dough mixed in the machine it is slightly sticky but I like it like that because once it rises its all sorted and when punching down make sure your hands are oiled or floured.
