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.
