It’s really easy to grab a packet of chips and a tub of dip to have when friends come over, but if you’ve got the time to make them these homemade cheese biscuits are terrific. They don’t take that long to do and they go really well with a drink.
It’s autumn and apples are appearing back on the shelves, so I thought it was time to post a recipe that included them. Pork and apple have always gone together and I think this recipe that Mum cut out of the Herald Sun looks like a great way to combine the two.
This is another no-pastry quiche which Mum collected from the New Idea. I’m not sure what the difference between a quiche without pastry and a frittata is. I suspect it’s just the country it’s made in – Quiche, Australia – Frittata, Italy. What do you think?
I’ve always thought that a Tea Cake was a cake which can be made quickly just before visitors arrive and eaten fresh and warm with a cup of tea or coffee. Cakes made like this don’t keep well and are really best eaten the day their made.
1 large cup self raising flour
2 tablespoons custard powder
Pinch of salt
1 cup sugar
2 tablespoons soft margarine
½ cup milk
Beat on high speed 3-4 minutes. Place mixture in large cake tin (200ml). Bake moderate oven 180o for about 30 minutes. Turn out while still hot and spread with butter. Mix together 2 teaspoons coconut, 2 teaspoons sugar and 1 teaspoon cinnamon and spread on cake.
Here’s another of Mum’s pinned together recipes. If I’d realised that there was a cellotape shortage in her kitchen I would have donated a couple of rolls to her bottom drawer. I guess at least the pins kept the recipes together and saved pieces getting lost. If that had happened we’d never have had this Chocolate Cheese Brownie recipe to enjoy.
