Chocolate Oat Slice

This is a very moreish slice – it has a buttery chewy oat base topped with a fudgy chocolate with some walnuts.  Better still, this slice is easy and cheap to make! And it will make a lot too – perfect if you need to bring something for morning tea at work or you are…

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…

Peach Jam Yoghurt Crumble Slice

This delicious slice is very easy to make. My mum made some chunky peach jam using peaches from my tree. The chunky pieces of fruit in the jam helps to give some texture. The yoghurt topping is light and creamy with a very subtle hint of honey.  The crumble or streusel ties the whole slice…

Spiced Apple Custard Tea Cake

This is a lovely vanilla tea cake topped with spiced apples.  Once you cut a piece, you will noticed there is a layer of custard inside the tea cake!  What more can you ask for? Apples, spices and custard…  classic combinations!  This recipe will take some time to do, but you will be rewarded with…

Chocolate Raspberry Coconut Slice

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

This is a crunchy and at the same time a very moreish slice.  The use of oats gives the crunch, while the simple subtle lemon cream used as a filling gives the fudgy texture to the overall slice.  This recipe is certainly a keeper! 125g unsalted butter, softened 1 cup brown sugar 1 teaspoon vanilla extract…

Banana Weet-Bix Chocolate Chip Muffins

I discovered this recipe soon after I made Banana and Chocolate Chip Muffins last week. I decided to give this recipe a try.  These muffins turned out very well and they were so very delicious!  The use of Weet-bix gives a good texture and it also provides enough overall sweetness to the whole recipe.  These…

Banana and Chocolate Chip Muffins

Last week, I made my favourite Banana Cake and I find myself with having  riped bananas again this week.  So, I thought I give this recipe a try.  Muffins are lovely when you get the texture right but they taste at their best on the day you make them.  This recipe makes 12 muffins which is standard….

Toscanner Slice

This is a buttery almondy delight of a slice! It has a firm base, topped with a frangipani type of filling covered by a buttery and honey caramel-like crunchy topping.  Despite the recipe involving a few steps, this slice is worth making. Base: 1 1/2 cups plain flour 1/2 cup icing sugar 1 teaspoon vanilla extract…

Fudgy Chocolate Cherry Biscuits

These biscuits or cookies are sinfully moreish and delicious!  The outside is lightly crispy and inside is chewy or fudgy – exactly the way I like my biscuits. They are filled with generous chunk size chocolate pieces with a little bit of cherry throughout. This recipe can be doubled easily if you need to bake…

Chocolate Fudge Muffins (Gluten free)

These heavenly rich chocolate flavoured muffins are moist that is enjoyed by everyone. I decided to try this recipe because I have been looking for gluten free recipes.  It is challenging to find some easy recipes that I can do at home, without having to purchase many special ingredients when I only needed a small…

Snickerdoodle Biscuits

These Snickerdoodle Biscuits are slightly crunchy around the edges with soft textured centres.  The flavour of these biscuits are buttery and vanilla which is covered in fragrant cinnamon sugar.  Cream of tartar imparts a unique tangy flavor to the cookie, which makes it a classic Snickerdoodle. 110g unsalted butter, softened at room temperature 1/2 cup caster sugar…
