CHOCOLATE WEETBIX FINGERS

This is one of those old recipes that our mothers made from what they had in the cupboard.  Nothing fancy, just cocoa, butter, weetbix, coconut, flour and brown sugar.  A cheap easy slice that the kids loved.  4 ozs = 125g

LAMINGTONS

Australia Day is only a couple of weeks away and how better to celebrate it than with lamb, pavlova and lamingtons.  The lamingtons take a bit of patience to make yourself, but are much better than the bought variety.  The conversion for this old recipe of Mum’s is: 8oz = 250ml, 4oz = 125g and the 9in square cake tin = 23cm.

CREAM CHEESE SLICE (NO BAKE)

As you can see this recipe is from the Keysborough Bowls Social Club Simple Slice Recipe book.  I’ve never made it, but I can remember seeing it on the table at a few “bring a plate” events back in the 70s when my kids were little.  It’s sort of a fake vanilla slice – the plate was always empty at the end of the event it must taste good.

SAVOURY TOASTS

Tomato sauce and cheese on toast has been a well loved favourite in Mum’s and my households for years.  Mum also used to make a little afternoon tea/supper snack that was cheese and bacon on toast, but this recipe combines them both.  Personally I’m not sure about the garlic, but after finding this recipe I’m now going to give the sauce, cheese and bacon a go.
