Bewl 2013

As previously we have been invited to Bewl for the usual two bank holiday weekends, the one at the end of May and the other at the end of August. Although it appears we are welcome to spend both weekends camping and enjoying Bewl Water Sailing Club's facilities the Committee has decided that our official May visit will be for the Bank Holiday Monday only, whilst in August we will make it a long weekend Saturday to Monday.

Jean and I will be in Turkey in May but we are planning to be at the August weekend with our caravan as we did last year. We plan to arrive on the Friday to secure our spot and set up early, close to the amenities. Hopefully the turn out will be at least as good as last year with our side-tent acting as a mobile clubhouse.

See you there!

Lemon Drizzle Cake: A tribute to Joan Bray.

1 Large Lemon,

6oz Caster Sugar,

2 Eggs,(Medium),

6oz Self-Raising Flour,

4oz Soft Margarine,

3 Tablespoons Granulated Sugar

6" Cake or loaf tin.

Mix together Caster Sugar, Eggs, Flour and Margarine with an electric beater then add zest from lemon and add to batter mixing well.

Heat oven to Mark 4, 180.

Place mix in tin and bake for 1 hour.

Juice the lemon and when the cake is cooked sprinkle the top with the juice and immediately cover with the 3 Tablespoons of Granulated Sugar.

A tip for the Mainsheet Culinary Corner just under Joan Bray’s Drizzle Cake recipe.

Place a lemon in the freezer and when you want lemon for drinks or flavour, simply grate as much as you need for the job. Sprinkle it on top of fish, cakes, casseroles, soup and in hot water for winter drink. Try in noodles, spaghetti sauce, rice, sushi, fish dishes, sweets, ice cream and salads.

Works with oranges too!
