APRICOT DELIGHT BREAD AND BUTTER PUDDING

Mum’s traditional Bread and Butter pudding was made with buttered white bread and a handful of sultanas.  This Apricot Delight recipe goes a step further and uses apricot loaf as the base, but really any fruit bread works just as well.

CHOCOLATE & CUSTARD TORTE

With Easter so close and Hot Cross Buns everywhere it seems like a great time to share a couple of Hot Cross Bun recipes.  My son in law loves Hot Cross Buns so I made this dessert for him to try last weekend. The Hot Cross Bun & chocolate base was great, but we all agreed that the topping needed a bit more custard and less cream.  It’s well worth trying though.

SWEET POTATO WITH SOUR CREAM AND BACON

I almost missed this gem which was on a Herald Sun newspaper page.  Mum stuck mostly to the old style potatoes, which in her day were just potatoes and only came washed or unwashed, big or small.  Nothing like today’s variety.  I think this recipe looks good, a great way to jazz up sweet potato.
