Cornflake Cookies

Last weekend I made a batch of these delightful Cornflake Cookies.  You’ll get around 20 large cookies or a lot more if you make little ones.  Don’t forget if you make them small you can have 2 or 3 and not feel as guilty. hahaha. 

I think you all know by now my mum didn’t like to cook much and I did most of the cooking when I was old enough to hold a frypan.  My Nan was the cook in the family.  She was brilliant; I wish I had taken more notice.  I don’t ever remember her looking up a recipe; they were all in her head.  By the time I was ten she lived in another state, so it was just too far for weekend visits.  Nan never made these cookies that I can remember but mum would buy them from fete’s and the like as I was growing up.  They are pretty yummy.   

Bake Club testing

We’re going to have a play with them at Bake Club this term but I’ve got in and tested one of the recipes before we start.  I’ll post the best Cornflake cookies if this one doesn’t win after we’ve tested the rest.  Although they must be alright there were 21 in total. When they came out of the oven my grandson, and I had one each.  Then I left them for our guests to munch on while I went to work in the cooking school.  After class, I came back to see there were only 2 left.  WOW, they must have been good, 16 cookies eaten by 3 adults in one sitting.  Ahahahaa funny 


Salted Caramel Coconut Topping (For Bec’s Brownies)

This is one yummy topping for brownies or a myriad of other sweet treats. I call it Salted Caramel Coconut Topping, last “Open Day” (2016) I used this topping over my Brownie Recipe, and the crowd went wild.  Actually, they didn’t, but I did get quite a few people telling me it was absolutely delicious.   We made it in Bake Club this week, and I had a similar response so I thought I’d share it with you.  Continue reading “Salted Caramel Coconut Topping (For Bec’s Brownies)”

Granola Grownups Cookies

I’m sure some of you will have made a recipe from a book, magazine or found one online and after working away at it found it didn’t quite work out how the picture looked.

I think It’s awful that this happens.  It puts people off cooking or baking and makes them think they’ve done something wrong.  I suppose that’s why there are so many recipe books etc. out there. We’re all searching for those truly amazing recipes that work.

Warning, rant coming up

A Bit More Than Bake Club

You must be wondering why you haven’t been seeing our usual photo’s on our Facebook pages for a while. Well, it’s because we’ve been doing things a little differently at Bake Club this term.

Because most of the girls have been coming for around 4 years, I’ve had the opportunity to notice techniques that cause them problems. So this term we dealt with them. Continue reading “A Bit More Than Bake Club”

Mandorlas or Amoretti biscuits

Whatever you want to call them Mandorlas or Amoretti biscuits these are delicious.  It’s hard to remember all the recipes we make at Bake Club; recently I was reminded of these. Over three years now and 40 recipes per term, that’s a whole lot of baking.  I’m not good with math, but Continue reading “Mandorlas or Amoretti biscuits”
