Cherry strudel.

If you're after a super easy dessert tat takes almost no time at all to prepare and zero cooking ability, is low in sugar and high in flavour, and will also impress whoever you serve it to then look no further. If you're like me and tend to stock up on random ingredients you then ...

Chocolate Fudge Cake

In the midst of the Christmas food binge I decided I felt like something chocolate-y and simple. Store cupboard ingredients were a must because I wanted to avoid the shops, and I found exactly what I was looking for in the classic The Margaret Fulton Cookbook. Margaret Fulton was undeniably Australia's first celebrity chef, her ...

Chocolate Fudge Brownies

Chocolate. Is there anyone who doesn't like even just a small amount? Dark and bitter if sweet isn't your thing, who can resist? These chocolate fudge brownies are chocolatey, dense, a bit chewy, and a bit gooey. Take them out around the thirty-five minute mark for gooier and give them five minutes longer in the ...

Lemon Meringue Tarts

I've been on a mission to use up those random ingredients I sometimes buy then forget about. These hall of fame lemon meringue tarts were served up recently to use up the two jars of lemon curd I had somehow ended up with. Teamed with my simple shortcrust pastry and a basic meringue topping, they ...

Salted Caramel Tarts

You 're going to love me for these. They salted caramel tarts look super impressive but use every short cut there is. I had every intention of making my own pastry and salted caramel but then decided to cut out hours of work and go straight to the finished treat. All you need is a ...

Raspberry Tart

This raspberry tart tastes every bit as good as it looks and is surprisingly easy to make. At the very least you could use bought pastry and just make the creme patissiere then top with berries. I would stick with raspbberries though as their tartness cuts through the sweet cream perfectly. Ingredients: For the creme ...

Chocolate Macarons

No matter how many lemon, raspberry, or pistachio macarons I offer up, someone always asks why I didn't make chocolate. These use the basic macaron recipe which you can find HERE, and a milk chocolate ganache which you can find HERE. *Please note: follow the recipe as for basic macarons, but substitute 50 g of ...


Here, finally, is the recipe for macarons using the Italian meringue method. The recipe below makes a large batch, but I haven't bothered trying to halve or reduce the quantities because macarons keep really well, make a great gift, and generally don't last very long in our house. Keep in mind, this is a basic ...

Christmas Pudding

Here we are folks, already at the business end of the year. Christmas may still be five weeks away, but now is the perfect time to get started on this traditional steamed pudding. I like to start about six weeks before the big day by preparing my fruit mince and making the pudding. Then it ...
