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…

Brown Butter and Pecan Blondies

A simple, fudgy brownie-like slice, filled with pecans and chocolate bits.  You can use chunkier size chocolate pieces if you wish.  This is another melt, mix and bake type of recipe.  The step involving browning the butter is worth it – it gives the slice a delicious nutty aroma and flavour. 230g unsalted butter 2…

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. …

Jam Polenta Bars

This is a lovely slice that has a slight grittiness from the polenta mixed with almond meal.  This recipe could potentially be gluten free, if the self-raising flour was replaced with the gluten free version.  The jam used in this recipe was cherry, but any flavoured jam or whatever you have opened can be used…

Oaty Chocolate Fudge Slice

This slice contains a buttery oat mixture that forms the base and crumble to cover a fudgy chocolate filling that has a brownie-like texture.  If you would like to have a bit more texture, stir through a packet of white chocolate chips after the final step in making the chocolate filling.  This slice is very…

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…

S’mores Slice

This is a quick, easy and a very delicious slice!!  This slice has all the flavours of S’mores – a beloved American campfire treat which involves toasted marshmallows with a melted piece of chocolate sandwiched between two graham crackers.  The best substitute for graham crackers in Australia (if you can’t find them) is either digestive…

Old English Matrimonial Slice

A crunchy oaty and at the same time moreish slice.  And it is so simple to make. I use whatever jam I have opened, which makes this recipe versatile. The history of this slice suggest it may have come from Canada and original version used a date filling rather than the jam. Both fillings are delicious.  If you want to…
