Malted Milk Blondies Slice

A brownie with a difference!  It has a lovely aroma and flavour from the malted milk powder.  It is dense, moreish and has the crunch from the maltesers found within….  It doesn’t matter that the slice isn’t ‘fully’ cooked through, as you may want the gooey bits found in the middle.  Store the slice in…

Malted Milk Slice (or Milo Slice)

A lovely, moist and slightly chewy slice.  It is ridiculously easy to make, it is literally a melt, mix and bake type recipe.  The original recipe uses Milo powder, which I’m sure will taste delicious.  However, I still had some Malted Milk drink powder left after making the (decadent) Chocolate Caramel Biscuit Slice. 3/4 cup…

Blueberry Friand Slice

I do like a nice friand cake but making them can be quite fiddly when you need to grease individual friand tins… Then, I came across this recipe.  Rather than making individual friands, you make this recipe in a slice tin!  It is lovely, light and moist textured which is dotted with seasonal fresh blueberries. …

Baked ‘Rocky Road’ Slice

This is a very yummy slice!  I don’t think calling this a ‘Rocky Road’ slice is quite right.  I think it was given this name because it has some of the elements of a rocky road – the nuts, dried fruits and marshmallows. I do love the combination of these flavours in a creamy filling…

The original recipe called this a Lamington Slice.  However, this slice is very much like the classic Raspberry Coconut Slice recipe (I will provide this recipe later).  The only difference is the base, which is chocolate flavoured.  The base has a lovely chocolate shortbread type texture with a layer of jam and topped with a…

Lemon Cream Oatmeal Slice
