I tried to enlist the Moog's help with the draw by sprinkling the tickets on the floor and getting her to sniff the winner out but she is of little brain and got all scared and barky.
Therefore, into a (washed for the occasion) bowl they went and I turned round and closed my eyes in the interests of fair play:
and out came:
Hi there Gina you got picked! If you could email me your details I'll get your goodies in the post on Monday :o)
To everyone else who left such lovely comments I'm so sorry you didn't get picked - this time! If it's any consolation I found the whole thing very stressful because I wanted everyone to get picked - sticking my tongue out to the inventor of blog draws and asking the question 'did they also invent party bags?' - too much pressure!!!
If this will help, here's my Pumpkin & Banana Muffin recipe, freshly tweaked:
8oz pumpkin puree
1 very ripe banana mashed
2 tablespoons sunflower oil
3 tablespoons milk
1/2 tsp vanilla essence
12oz self raising flour
4oz light brown soft sugar
1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
1/2 tsp ground ginger
1 tsp baking powder
Bung all the wet ingredients into a large bowl and mix well together. Bung in all the dry ingredients and stir until just mixed.
Bung into 12 paper muffin cases and bung into a moderate oven (Gas Mark 4) for 15 to 20 minutes until golden and firm to the touch (just like me!!!).
They are best eaten the day after baking as they tend to part company with the paper case more willingly.
I made the pumpkin puree by steaming all the little bits of pumpkin flesh left over from the Hallowe'en disemboweling. I then pureed it with my hand held blender.
Much as I'd like to stay here waffling and prolonging the agony for everyone who is waiting desperately for the draw results I do have to go. Got a bit of a cookathon going on in preparation for going to see my Dad this weekend.
