Here is a festive treat from international Celebrity Chef, Mrs. Mason - your very own 'Kaiser Of The Kitchen'. Mrs. Mason admits to being just a little influenced by that dazzling novel 'Das Brot der frühen Jahre' by old favourite Heinrich Böll.
Hurrah! Well done!
After three, all the children sing 'That'll do for me, Mrs. Mason!'
Mrs. Mason's Extraportion Pudding
Remember - quality will not be hurried! It's no use massaging over the cracks. Put all the dry ingredients - the flour, bloater paste, dribs and drabs, switzy fingerlets and ground dorowot - in a large mixing bowl. These sholuld then be bent and spindled - folded or mutilated. Whatever you do, do not add the mushrooms yet! You will, as any fool knows, make yourself look a right charlie - because, obviously, you will initiate copious quantities of mirth and merriment, guffaws, chuckles, chortles, giggles, sniggers and smirks. Not to mention whoopees, tee-hees, titters and hoots. And the potential Diesel spillage will render the whole exercise a complete fiasco. Get a grip. Don a blindfold. Then mix in the mushrooms and stay calm. Stir in the wet ingredients and cover the mixing bowl in sacking and allow the mixture to fester. Ask someone with no sense of humour to transfer the burgoo to a large roasting tin and bake for 83 minutes at 250°. Go out and assemble your chosen merry makers. Eat. Talk about mushrooms and laugh.
