The great Date Roll disaster

Woke up feeling blah. Had breakfast and fell asleep again. Woke up again still feeling blah. Decided to make date roll. Followed my recipe precisely. Stuffed it all in the tin, then into a moderate oven for 30 minutes. Date Roll exploded. Double check of recipe revealed quantity was for two Date Rolls. Oh silly me. Moral of the story: if you are feeling blah then forget cooking – go to a nice little cafe.


Here’s the mix – all good at this stage


Into the tin – no sign of the impending disaster.




Got a couple of nice slices – still tastes good
