Delightfully-Rich Chocolate Mulberry Brownies

So many mulberries, so little time to use them up before the season finishes!

Here’s a chocolate mulberry brownies recipe to enjoy. These taste rich and delicious – mainly because of the use of dutch cocoa powder instead of regular bournville cocoa. I’ve only recently gotten into dutch cocoa. Soo delicious and it just takes your chocolate cakes to a whole new level. Hmmmm…. brownies!

Scrumptious Mulberry and Almond Slice That’s Sugar Free

It’s that time of year again – Mulberry time! And what better way to try them out than by cooking them up in a slice recipe!

Yet again my Mum’s Mulberry tree is heavily laden with the rich black berries. The tree is huge, and people from all over her neighbourhood come to taste test. They eat them straight from the tree, and also fill up small containers with the mulberries to take home to enjoy. I’ve been lucky enough to share the picking experience with my 2 boys this year – Red hand alert! My youngest also had a bright red mouth to match his hands 🙂

My mum likes to make lots and lots of Mulberry Pies and Mulberry Jam. I’ve decided to try to make some slices with my mulberries. This slice recipe contains no sugar… (more…)

Heavenly White Chocolate and Strawberry Tart Full of Taste and Nutrients

I was at my local supermarket the other day and I got a nice surprise. As soon as I entered the store I saw strawberries on display – for only 50 cents a punnet. That’s bargain prices!

Of course I stocked my trolley with a few punnets. But I also wonder about the farmer who grew these strawberries, and how much the supermarket has paid the farmer for the strawberries? Supermarkets have a history of undercutting producers….

When I got home, I just had to make something with strawberries in it. This is how this White Chocolate and Strawberry Tart recipe came about:

This 4 Step Raspberry Baked Cheesecake Recipe Is Exquisit

We have had big celebrations in our house lately. My youngest son turned 2, and my eldest son turned 4 (all within a day of each other). It’s an exciting time of year for 2 little boys.

I had been busy preparing for their joint birthday party and hadn’t really had time to think about birthday cakes for the actual birthDAY of my eldest. We also had both sets of Grandparents coming over for dinner, so I wanted something that would double as a dessert. It needed to be an easy recipe. What better than cheesecake? Mr 4 loves raspberries, so there was no question over what flavour it would be. Here is the raspberry cheesecake recipe I used.

Unbelievably Tangy Lemon Passionfruit Slice Recipe

I have been meaning to post this slice for a few weeks now but my SD card reader broke , so I was unable to access the image files on my camera card. Thankfully I now have a new one (thanks Ebay!), so I can get back to posting.

This slice recipe has a lovely tang from the lemon and the passionfruit. I used lemonade lemons from my parent’s tree, but ordinary lemons will work just as great in this recipe.
