Firstly, the cake recipe (word for word that I wrote down about 30 years ago from my mother’s cook book).
“Chocolate Belgium Cake” How can a cake be Belgium? I have only just noticed this!
1/2 lb butter – NEVER, EVER MARGARINE EVER!
1/2 lb Cadbury’s Plain chocolate – I use 70%+ chocolate – less sweet but very nice
1/2 lb Lincoln Creams or plain digestive biscuits – I used Rich Tea as I forgot about Lincoln Creams and I am not actually sure what they are!
Melt butter in saucepan
Melt chocolate in bain marie (bowl over hot water)
Break up biscuits (use bag and rolling pin – you want lumps not crumbs)
Beat egg in a big bowl.
Pour melted butter in and stir – you do not want scrambled egg.
Blend melted chocolate into egg/butter mixture
Add biscuits and stir
(You can add chopped walnuts and/or almonds if you want. Even rum or kirsch)
Mix everything up in big bowl.
Grease low cake tin with butter
Put mixture in
Allow to cool
Put in fridge
Then slice and serve.
Sorry, no pic but it never lasts long and is delicious. Easiest pudding ever!

Secondly, Daisy and Kappi are back in training. They are back to working hard now the holidays are over.
Yes, there was instruction (Bjørn Roar Larsen) as well as the odd obstacle. Very odd.
The viewing gallery was full too. Everyone’s a critic.
While they were tölting, trotting and cantering round the school, Mr and Mrs Wren were happily flying about inside shouting their heads off. They make the best noise. I have a very soft spot for my wrens.
Thirdly, today was spent in the Big L (Lerwick) to get more equine supplies and perhaps a few human ones too.
Plus the Dentist.
And then a mad dash home before it got dark to dish out the afternoon silage. There was family waiting.
(and someone asked why Lambie is always clean? Because that is what Muzzah is for!)
