My knowledge of the German language is rusty and impartial to say the least, so my first trip to the local supermarket was interesting.
- ‘Self-raising flour’ does not exist over here, thankfully I had thought ahead and bought new supplies of baking powder and Bi-carbonate of soda to make my own.
- On the topic of flour – what is wrong with calling it ‘plain’ or ‘bread’ flour. I took a lucky gamble with flour type 405 and googled it when I got home.
- I wish I had brought stashes of Billingtons golden caster sugar – I will keep searching for something similar.
- Out of principle, I always aim to get free range eggs – these are not free range I need to keep an eye out for ‘Freilandeier’.
Now to find some sugar paste….
