Recipe Scene: Malted Chocolate Cake

July 18, 2018 Kate Delbridge

This recipe is based on one I found online at www.delcious.com.au. I’ve adjusted it slightly and changed the icing to a fudge frosting. I first made this when I bought a large box of Maltesers but left them in a hot car and they all melted together into one big Maltesery block. But once they were chopped and scattered over and inside this cake no one was any the wiser. The cake is easy to
make and has a delicious flavour. If you don’t want to make the frosting you could easily whip cream and stir thorough crushed Maltesers and use this to fill and top the cake. Equally as delicious. […]

Vintage Guitar Scene: 1958 Gibson Les Paul Gold Top

July 17, 2018 Martin Cilia

Ok take a deep breath… This is about as good as it gets… This one guitar literally cost me – a 1957 Stratocaster, 1964 Stratocaster, 1956 Les Paul Custom, 1956 Les Paul Soecial TV, an L series Fender Jazzmaster, and a refin but otherwise all original 1962 strat. All these guitars were 100% original bar the ’62 refin strat. […]

Recipe Scene: Lamington Brownies

July 11, 2018 Kate Delbridge

I adapted this recipe from one I found in Super Food Ideas magazine. It’s a really good brownie recipe, topped with a kind of coconut ice type layer that is briefly baked in the oven, then covered in chocolatey topping with a further scattering of coconut. I think you will find yourself quite popular if you make a tray of this. […]

Recipe Scene: Healthyish Weet Bix Slice

July 4, 2018 Kate Delbridge

I love that buttery, sugary weet bix slice that has piles of fluffy marshmallow on the top that brings back childhood memories. Obviously though it’s not particularly healthy. This version is really nice, and also a bit better for you. So yes, you can have 3 pieces. I drizzled with melted chocolate, but you can leave this off if you want. Because it’s made with coconut oil and not baked the slice gets a bit soft and crumbly if it’s a hot day, so best to store it in the fridge. […]

Recipe Scene: Chocolate Chip Banana Cake

June 27, 2018 Kate Delbridge

This recipe is from Bill Granger’s cookbook Bill’s Food. He calls it choc chip banana bread but to me it is most definitely a cake. A delicious cake that smells divine while it’s cooking and tastes absolutory sensational. The version here is slightly healthier than the one in the book. I’ve replaced the white flour with wholemeal flour, reduced the sugar a bit and switched out the milk choc chips for dark. I usually make this in two bar tins so I have a cake for us and one to give away. However usually the kids insist we keep them both. […]

Recipe Scene: Layered Strawberry White Chocolate Mousse Dessert

June 20, 2018 Kate Delbridge

This is my adaption of a Thermomix recipe for White chocolate Mousse Cups.
I’m not a massive fan of individually portioned desserts, I like people to have as
much or as little as they want, with plenty of opportunity for seconds. And
thirds. The original recipe calls for a home made sponge between the layers, but
I prefer to make it with tiramisu biscuits – it’s quicker, and also they taste great
with the other flavours. Because the recipe calls for 160 grams coconut milk and
I hate having leftover tins sitting in the fridge for a week til I throw them out, I
use the Ayam brand sachets of dehydrated coconut milk, one sachet with 150
grams of water makes the perfect amount. You can make this dessert with any
seasonal summer fruit. I’ve made this version with strawberries, but have also
included a photo of a mango one. The dessert improves with time – keep
leftovers in the fridge and have a few cheeky spoonfuls whenever you open the
fridge. […]

Recipe Scene: Brown Sugar Banoffee Pavlova Wreath

June 13, 2018 Kate Delbridge

This is a variation on the mixed berry wreath posted a few weeks ago. The substitution of brown sugar instead of white gives the pav a lovely caramel flavour. You can make your own caramel sauce or use a bought one, either is of course completely fine. As a tip, make sure you measure your largest serving plate before making the wreath, you don’t want to be in the awkward position of not having a plate big enough to put the pavlova onto. I also mark out the shape I want on the back of the baking paper first – for me making an even circle shape is harder than it seems! […]
