A small food processor? If it has a blade you can mix up your pie crust in it too. might be small from the picture, so you might need to make the crust for a 2 crust pie twice. So much easier on the hands.

For I minute I thought it was called 'touchwood' which probably wouldn't have been a great name for a cooking gadget! :) Nice!

I'm a great fan of the food processor. i would not be able to do half the things i do without it. It is so quick and labour saving. Enjoy it.

Much appreciated Scotsgran...it will be a bit of a life saver for me too....or fingers saver lol....;)) and OH will make good use of it too...
Last year for Christmas we treated ourselves to a big Mixer/Dough maker....haven't looked back, and haven't had a shop bought loaf since.....It's paid for itself over and over...:)))
Thanks Karen...as long as it does the job, it could be called ******* lol....:))))

Have to admit we too bought a bread maker at least a year ago and it is still in the box. We love home made bread and i do make it now and again but must unpack the gadget and see what it can do. i also bought a very reduced price doughnut maker and that is out of the box but just been sitting there for three months. If i am short of something to have I just make scotch pancakes (dropped scones in English). They are quick and easy. It took me years to find a recipe that works for me now it is plain sailing.

ooh Doughnut maker, sounds lovely, but I must be sensible with my weight lol...I wouldn't mind your Scotch Pancake recipe, whenever you've got time...

Our new machine will start very soon to earn it's keep, the Hunting Season has started here, we've just had our First donation, a Pheasant...and Wild Boar is following on it's heels...They'll be so much meat, some will get chopped, and minced for meatballs etc...

Scotch Pancakes - I use a tablespoon with the bowl side throwing air in to the wet mix. These can be frozen.

Sieve together -
175g/6oz Plain Flour
pinch of salt
half level teasp. bicarbonate of soda
one level teasp. cream of tartar
1 tablespoon caster sugar

Add
1 beaten egg
150ml/quarter pint plus 3 tablespoons milk
1 teasp. golden syrup

Careful how you add the milk, you want a pouring consistency batter - like thick cream. You may not need all of it.

Heat a heavy bottomed frying pan (I use the hot plate on my Esse) and use fat to grease it. Drop tablespoonfuls of batter on and wait until the bubbles start to rise to the top and begin to burst. Turn them over and cook the other side. The heat should be sufficient to make them a good brown colour. Serve hot or cold.

Thanks J...I know it has a few functions, will sit down with the manual when I get chance, am looking forward to trying it out...:)))

You will not need a food processor for the pancakes. They mix really quickly using a tablespoon.As soon as the flour is incorporated stop mixing as all you will do is toughen the flour molecules and your pancakes will be elastic instead of spongy. There is no fat in this recipe except for the small amounts in the egg yolk and we use skimmed milk so they are ideal if you are on a healthy diet.

Ok Thanks for that Sg.....
