BUTTERSCOTCH LAYER CAKE

It looks like Mum cut this recipe from the back of a packet of CSR brown sugar.  It’s certainly one for those with a sweet tooth…………….

MAPLE SYRUP AND CHOC-CHIP COOKIE DOUGH ICE CREAM

This recipe was published 20 years ago in the Women’s Weekly, the lazy way to make it now would just be to use Oreo biscuits, although the making it with unbaked dough would give it a different texture.  Your choice!

FRENCH COFFEE CAKE

My experience of these type of coffee cakes is that they don’t last long.  Firstly, they taste good and get eaten quickly and secondly they dry out and can’t be kept more than a day or so.  Not sure if there’s anything French about them, but I do know it’s the topping that makes them so good.

This recipe comes from the back of a 1970s White Wings Plain Flour packet so you need to do some metric conversions.  1oz = 30ml, 2oz = 60ml and the pan size converts to a 15cm tin.  Enjoy!!

ECCLES CAKES

All I’ve ever known about Eccles cakes is that they are English.  So when I found this recipe I thought I’d better find out a bit more about them.  Good old Wikipedia tells me that ‘Eccles cakes are named after the English town of Eccles. It is not known who invented the recipe, but James Birch is credited with being the first person to sell Eccles cakes commercially, from his shop in the town centre in 1793″.  Any fans of the 1950s Goon Show will also know that Eccles was a character played by Spike Milligan – an amiable, well-meaning man with no wits or understanding, in other words a bit of an idiot.  So the humble Eccles Cake has quite a history.

 

SAVORY LAMB CHOP BAKE

Winter is only four days away here in Victoria, so it’s time to start thinking of hearty winter casseroles.  The combination of tomato sauce, vinegar, curry powder and brown sugar in this recipe reminds me of another one I make, which has pumpkin instead of the potato in it.  The good thing with this recipe is that you probably have all the ingredients in the cupboard so it can be a last minute decision to make it.
