These sound great but can someone post the recipe with U.S. measurements? I'm trying to covert them but it ain't easy!
Looks like a great recipe. I shop once a month to keep to a budget, which works great for everything else except the cereal which always runs out before then, and I refuse to buy any more than i usually do.so this will be great to tide my kids over till its time to go shopping again. porridge oats are cheap compared with cereal so i will just get a tin of that instead of a box of cereal since I usually buy about 8boxes of cereal. I usually have the other items on hand anyway.
And here's me blessing dorty for giving me measurements in grams! Wish there was a way we could have the recipes in both grams and cups so that everybody is happy!
Yes, I agree, it takes ages to convert. I've given up on so many recipes simply because its such a hassle to convert from U.S. measurements to grams.
