This really is an oldie, but a it’s a goody. Simple to make and one the kids like.
This is another of those slice recipes that Mum’s bowls club gathered together for their Simple Slices Recipes fund raiser booklet. Those ladies certainly had a great collection of recipes and enjoyed sharing them for the club.
This is a modern version of the old Hedgehog recipe which only has walnuts added to the biscuits, cocoa and eggs. A couple of tablespoons of rum, pecans and sultanas would certainly step it up a bit.
I think this recipe deserves a photo as the jelly topping would look and taste really good. It’s another one from Mum’s bowls club slices recipe book, which sadly has no photos at all. The book would have been put together well before computers and Photoshop. It would have been typed and the cover would have had to have been done at the printers – the good old days……
This recipe pops up a couple of times in Mum’s collection. The first one is pre-metrics so it dates from at least the 1970s. This version has been converted which makes it a bit easier for us now. It’s a pretty simple no bake slice, but it does taste lovely and lemony.
Another one of the Keysborough Bowls Social Club slices. This would be a be a good one for the kids to do – although you might need to buy extra peppermint crisps for the cooks to sample during cooking.
This a classic slice recipe, not just for my family, but for many Australian families. I’ve started with Mum’s original handwritten version and then added the typed version from my own recipe collection. On the side I’ve added the metric conversions. To be honest I’m not sure when Mum first started making it but I’ve dated it from the 1950s . I do know though that it still tastes great.
