Christmas Baking and Making

Well its christmas again and only two posts before it was christmas 2010 ... oops .... this year we did some handmade christmas presents to give to friends ... Merry christmas and a happy 2012 ..


This is Chocolate chip and oatmeal quick bread, the recipients just have to tip the contents into a bowl and add a few wet ingredients and then cook ... a great gift to give and very easy to assemble ..

Recipe can be downloaded  HERE

Gingerbread cookies that are very simple to make .. the icing not so, I never seem to have much success with that lol ...

Bacon and Cheese Quiches

Well hasn't the blog been neglected .... thankfully winter is nearly over and all that beautiful spring and summer light will lend itself to lots more photographs ..

This recipe is a great idea for afternoon tea snacks for the kids when they come home from school, easy to prepare earlier in the day and heat up in the oven when they get home...

The rectangle plate and the gorgeous yellow candy striped paper straws are from emerald + ella .


Enjoy !

Baileys Rocky Road Fudge

The last of the christmas baking .. a bit late I know :) ... but this rocky road was so yummy and popular that you could make it any time of year.

The white christmas I made, I left out the dried fruit and horrible glace cherries and replaced them with jelly snakes.

Enjoy !

Lemon Melting Moments

This recipe is taken from the Masterchef magazine. We have enjoyed going through the magazines picking all the things we want to cook :) ... some have been monumental mistakes others, like these yummy biscuits were a huge hit ... enjoy !

Lemon Melting Moments

200g (1 1/3 cups) plain flour
100g (2/3 cups) cornflour
225g unsalted butter, chopped, softened
80g (1/2 cup) icing sugar, sifted, plus extra, to dust
3 lemons zested
1 tsp vanilla extract

Passionfruit filling
4 passionfruit, pulp removed
200g (1 1/4 cups) icing sugar, sifted
1 tbs liquid glucose
80g unsalted butter, softened

1. Preheat oven to 170c. Sift flours with 1/4 tsp salt into a bowl. Using an electric mixer, beat butter and sugar until pale and fluffy. Add zest and vanilla then gradually beat in combined flours until mixture just comes together.

2. Roll 2 teaspoonsful of dough into balls, placing them on 2 oven trays lined with baking paper. Using a floured fork, mark biscuits with tines. Bake for 12 mintues, swapping trays halfway, or until biscuits are light golden. Transfer to a wire rack to cool. Makes 40.

3. Meanwhile, to make filling, press pulp through a fine sieve, reserving seeds. Place 2 tbs juice, 3 tsp reserved seeds and remaining ingredients in the bowl of an electric beater. Beat of high speed until fluffy. Refrigerate for 30 minutes.

4. Spread filling on 20 biscuits, then sandwich with remaining biscuits. Dust with extra icing sugar to serve.
