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…

Homemade Muesli Bars (Breakfast Bars)

This is a very delicious crunchy, yet slightly chewy in the middle bars filled with oats, dried fruits and a hint of chocolate chips.  It is ridiculously easy to make!  What is interesting about this recipe is that the dry ingredients are combined together using a can of sweetened condensed milk…  It actually works.  I…

The Best Hedgehog Slice

The first time I ever had a Hedgehog slice was from my school’s canteen a.k.a the tuckshop (why it was called this, I don’t know).  It was the best slice!  The portion size was huge and generous.  It was also full of chunks of biscuits in a yummy chocolate mixture with a hint of coconut.  Since…

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…

Malteser Slice

This slice is for the chocolate fans! And it is sure to be a crowd-pleaser too. Despite the richness from the chocolate, the crushed biscuits and Maltesers provide the crunch and texture.  It is simple and quick to make – most of the mixture is made using a saucepan. Even better, the ‘the baking’ is…

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…

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…

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…

Cherry Blondies Slice

Make the most of summer’s fresh cherries with this fudgy white chocolate brownie recipe. This delicious slice is so quick and simple to make.  To gauge whether the slice is cooked through, the centre of the slice needs to be firm to touch.  Due to the moistness of the mixture, the skewer test will not…

Chocolate Fruit Slice

A very simple slice to make!  It is quite moorish with the texture being firm, almost biscuit-like with the pieces of mixed dried fruit and crunch from the pecans. I didn’t iced this slice, but rather dust it with icing sugar.  It really depends on your personal taste. Base: 125g unsalted butter 1 cup self-raising…

Blueberry Traybake

A great summer cake, light and full of seasonal fruit. The recipe is a breeze to whip up and also works well with raspberries or other berries. 125g unsalted butter, softened at room temperature 1 cup white sugar 2 eggs 2 cups plain flour 1 teaspoon baking soda 1 teaspoon baking powder 200ml sour cream…
