The base recipe
• 2 cups of plain flour
• 1 cup cooking salt
• 2 cups water
• 2 tablespoons cooking oil
• 4 tablespoons of Cream of Tarter
• (quite a) Few drops food colouringMethod:
Combine all ingredients in a saucepan (the munchkins can do this part), stir until it has a smooth watery consistency, a bit like a thin pancake batter. Cook on stove top on a medium heat (grownups do this part), stirring constantly until it congeals. Towards the end it is very hard to stir (just like dough 😉 but keep stirring until the shiny wet parts are gone, about 5 mins.
Extra Note: We made 2x the recipe quantity in this post. The girls did one each. The first batch I cooked white, then added the white colouring and mint colouring. It made it seem a little bit sticky at first but seemed to go back to normal after a while. Perhaps it even helped to retain the moistness because these batches don’t dry as quickly as the ones where the colour was added before cooking.
