I suspect it’s the peppermint crisps, the crunchie bars or whatever chocolate treat you feel like adding that will be the main appeal of this ice cream for the kids. Even so it’s something they can make themselves, although I doubt all 3 bars will make it into the mix.
A traditional fruit crumble pudding is baked and that gives it a crisp top, but this Plum Crumble is a bit different. After cooking the plums you toast the oats and nuts and serve them on top of the plums with the apple and honey sauce poured over.
Not everyone in my family likes peas, so I won’t be making this for them, but for those who do it’s certainly a different way to eat them. Not sure I like the idea of the sultanas though, think I’d substitute capsicum or tomato to make it more savoury.
I always think of rissoles of being yummy meaty balls, but this recipe is a very different style of rissole. You can add tuna or salmon if you wish, but just a few other vegies would work just as well and either way it’s a budget meal.
Chocolate Ripple cakes were a very popular dessert in the 70s and 80s. This recipe is similar, sweet biscuits layered with cream, although in this case you dip the biscuits in coffee to add some flavour to the plainer biscuits. Both are a great ‘make the day before’ desserts.
I started making these little biscuits to have with pre-dinner drinks years ago. I also make cheese ones, but the chicken flavour in these makes them a bit different. They can be made in advance and the roll frozen Then all you need to do is slice them and bake them when needed.
Not sure you can get much more Australian than damper, especially if you serve it with a lamb stew. Originally it was a simple flour and water mix baked over a campfire, now recipes like this one have gone a step further using wholemeal flour, cinnamon and pumpkin. It still goes well with lamb though.
