Notes about Recipes in this book

  • Plum and hazelnut crostata

    • Cati on March 30, 2013

      A favourite recipe.I make several times during the plum season. Excellent pastry.

  • Date, orange and banana muffins

    • aargle on July 12, 2015

      These are ok. Took exactly 20 minutes - very easy and turned out beautifully light. Probably won't repeat. Found them a bit too sweet.

  • Sticky sour cream, golden syrup and ginger cake

    • aargle on May 11, 2015

      This cake looks very unassuming but was absolutely delicious. My girlfriend loved it so much she took the recipe immediately. Next time I will use a 23cm tin to get a little more height in the cake.

      Recipe available at: http://life-etcblog.blogspot.com.au/2013/07/a-recipe-sticky-sour-cream-golden-syrup.html and http://maudeandbetty.blogspot.com.au/2011/12/sticky-sour-cream-golden-syrup-and.html

    • lou_weez on April 10, 2020

      This is dense. sticky flavor packed deliciousness.

  • Chocolate and pecan higgledy-piggledys

    • aargle on August 17, 2015

      This is a great recipe which I am repeatedly asked for. I would make it more often except for the fact it's got so much butter in it and I have got no self restraint.

  • My favourite toffee almond slice

    • Melanie on June 25, 2017

      Amazing! Will definitely be repeating this dish. I cut mine into bars which worked perfectly.

  • Sticky banana, pecan and date loaf

    • Hellyloves2cook on April 14, 2012

      Made this and it was a total flop. Looked done on outside and was very uncooked in the middle. Very disappointing. May have been my oven- may try again to see if I can get this to come right.

  • Very quick pear and pecan or walnut cake

    • spoulos on October 17, 2020

      This recipe is really easy and tastes great. It also keeps really well.

  • Zucchini and kumara tea bread

    • franklysarah on September 03, 2014

      Wholesome, tasty and not very sweet. I substituted the flours for white spelt flour & whole spelt flour, and used coconut sugar & xylitol instead of the sugars - worked really well. Would be wonderful with a smear of cream cheese.

  • A wonderfully rich chocolate cake

    • digifish_books on April 29, 2015

      Title in the hardback version is 'A wonderful rich chocolate cake'.

  • Buttery almond and coconut cake

    • digifish_books on June 02, 2015

      Author's note "I usually slice it before I freeze it and defrost (or microwave) it as I need it (frequently in my case!). It also keeps well in the fridge for a week or so. Warm it gently or bring it to room temperature before eating it - although it has a rather fabulous ‘chewy’ almost candy-like texture when it’s cold too."

  • Kim's delicious apple, pecan and cinnamon cake

    • fgavin on April 25, 2014

      Definitely a bit dessert like.. I could imagine it with cream (like she suggested). But it was nice with the apple chunks for a change and lovely warm out of the oven. Will have to see what its like cold as a cake... (Oh, and I only used 3/4 cup sugar and it was still quite sweet)

  • Cooee's baked ham and asparagus roll-ups

    • fgavin on April 26, 2014

      Very nice. I would make again. We enjoyed it for a Sunday lunch. As per usual though I find with all her recipes they take longer in my oven.

  • Zucchini, feta and dill ‘pie’

    • fgavin on April 30, 2014

      I loved this! Mostly due to the herbs I think. And my toddler ate it too. I would however use less oil next time as it did seem a little 'oily'.

  • One-pan mocha cake with coffee bean brittle

    • lou_weez on January 19, 2017

      This was a great recipe to use up some of my Nespresso capsules (I used Linzertorte). Looking forward to making it again with a different flavoured coffee. Everyone really enjoyed the flavour and the fudgy yet light texture of the cake.

  • Apple, rum and raisin cake

    • lou_weez on April 08, 2020

      A really delicious apple cake. I didn't have raisins so used sultanas and soaked them in a honey liquor.

  • Walnut and caramel bars

    • lou_weez on April 21, 2018

      A simple recipe that yielded an ugly but delicious slice.
