Saffy’s Christmas Cook – Off

Chapter 1

It had been a long time since Saffy had a quiet Christmas.  She wanted to make the most of it and so took the opportunity to give herself the epic task of a Christmas Cook Off.  She would go where no woman had gone before and create a full Christmas dinner from scratch.  Although her efforts were not appreciated she still triumphed.   It was a great personal achievement.  This is her Christmas Story.

The Festive Oat Bakes were made using jumbo oats.  Safiya was so impressed by her last batch of oat bakes that she decided to make a small batch with a Christmas theme.  The sun shone through the kitchen window and Safiya then became inspired by the rays and made an apricot orange sticky glaze to cover the fruity bakes.
