How can you get it wrong?
Well, it is not that people get it wrong per se but some people do not get it absolutely right.
How do you make this staple of students across the world "right" I hear you say? You butter the toast lightly before you apply the peanut butter. If you don't do it, do it. You have been living a life of dry, okay-ish peanut butter on toast. With proper (salted) butter and peanut butter, it becomes oozy and lovely.
Having made my peanut butter on toast perfectly, today I made, for the first time, the coffee Weetabix cookie in the microwave.
It was fab. Read more for how to do it!
- Double Cream (3 tablespoons)
- Self raising flour (1 tablespoon)
- Caster sugar (1 tablespoon)
- 1 piece of Weetabix
- About a tablespoon of instant coffee
Bonus: try adding some jam to spread on the cookie.
Put all the ingredients together in a cup and stir together (forks are underrated stirring utensils!). When you do this, crush the Weetabix in with your fingers.
After it is all mixed together into a dryish paste (I think it looks a bit like one of those photos of dry ground in a desert somewhere), decant the mix onto a plate.
Press it down with the back of a spoon into a rough circle.
You could eat it like this if you wanted, but I felt like something hot and so popped it in the microwave for about 15 seconds.
This made it much wetter and more chewy like a cookie. It also then held its shape better.
I tried eating it with some jam spread on it (we know that jam works with Weetabix) but I suspect that if you added pieces of chocolate to the mix, or some hot chocolate powder, then that would also be great - it would be like a Mocha Weetabix Cookie!
