You can probably see that this recipe was one Mum saved from the label on a tin of sweetened condensed milk. I thought slices and biscuits using sweetened condensed milk had gone out of fashion, but maybe not, as during this Covid crisis it’s been one of the items that’s been hard to get at my supermarket. Maybe that’s because, like this recipe, slices and biscuits using it are usually fairly quick and easy to make. Great for baking and eating while stuck at home…………
Fancy a sweet treat to go with that cup of tea or coffee while you’re working from home? Then you might enjoy this slice. Won’t take long to make or if you’re lucky the kids might make it for you. Either way I hope it makes these difficult days a bit brighter for you.
Mum must have cut this recipe off the back of a packet of Anchor raisins and as you can see it uses all their products. Also on the label is a recipe for Brandied Fruits, although she didn’t make their one, she did make her own version, which is on here if you’d like to try it.
Coffee and macaroons…………yum, but just for a change what about trying these macaroons made with white chocolate. The added bonus is that they’re gluten free.
During this enforced lockdown our amazing 9 year old granddaughter has been cooking up a storm. This week she cooked a three course meal for all of us (the four in her household, plus three visitors) which was delicious. So when I saw this old marshmallow slice recipe that Mum kept from her bowling club, I thought it might be something she’d like to make, especially as the ingredients are everyday things that will be in the pantry. I hope she makes it and keeps a piece for us.
This recipe comes from a Woman’s Day Everyday Food supplement. I’m not sure I’d describe this as an everyday food, but it certainly is a yummy slice for a special occasion or maybe just for a special treat.
This is another one for the kids to make. With a bit of luck you’ll have most of the ingredients in the cupboard – they don’t need cooking, just a bit of patience in leaving them long enough in the fridge to become firm. (You can substitute vanilla essence for the rum – for the kids.)
Another one for the kids to make and the whole family to enjoy. Yummy jam tarts. You could use bought shortcrust pastry, but getting the kids to make their own, while a bit messy, would be worthwhile and of course licking the jam spoons would be their reward.
When this cheesecake slice with cinnamon, orange and sultana filling was published in the Woman’s Day it was described as ‘mouth-watering’ and they said that it would ‘really impress your family and friends’. It looks fairly easy to make and should transport well, so they might be right and it would just thing to take when you’re asked to ‘bring something sweet’ to a gathering.
I’m not sure this slice actually needs the rum in it. I think orange, apricot, marshallow and cream are probably enough flavours in one slice.
