This is a very old recipe that I found in my grandmother's recipe box. These are fabulous! :-) I like them best with strawberry preserves, but you can try them with others. Just make sure you use PRESERVES!
This is another one of my husbands family recipes. The index card (now yellow with age) says it is Auntie Vivian Cornwall's recipe. It is really good, but you need to take care not to over-bake the bottom layer.
For some reason, men always seem to go gah-gah over these. :) They are very easy to make, and it is a great way to use up the end of the corn flakes. I also like this recipe because it uses fewer ingredients than all the other ones I have seen.
I met Debbie when I was 11 years old and she knocked at our door and asked if I could come out to play. We're still friends nearly 40 years later! She brought this chocolate slice up for morning tea recently and we thought it was wonderful! We hope you'll love it too!
NOT to be confused with Bread and Butter Pudding which is a dessert, Bread Pudding is an old English dish which turns out more like a bar cake. This recipe is a more modern version of the one my grandmother used to make. Although Bread Pudding can be served warm with custard as a dessert, we rarely ate it this way. For us, it was more of a snack food. It tastes just as good at room temperature as it does hot. Grandma often tucked a slice or two into our school lunchboxes. When my brother joined the Navy he craved Bread Pudding and Mum had to pay a fortune to post one to him - clear across the country! This recipe was passed on to Mum by my older brother's friend, the late Nell McDonald. Nell was a great cook and I'm delighted to acknowledge her as the source of this recipe.
This is SO simple to make! If you like ginger, you'll LOVE this. Think crunchy biscuit base, smothered with ginger flavoured icing topped with crystallised ginger. It's from an old Australia & New Zealand recipe book - apparently a recipe from New Zealand. We love it!
A chocolate cake bottom topped with a chocolate, peanut butter rice cereal topping, and a gooey marshmallow filling. Prep time includes making the peanut butter topping. this can also be made successfully in a 13x9-inch baking pan, in fact I make it all the time in that size pan, and the rice cereal/peanut butter mixture can be doubled if desired.
From www.gingerbreadbagels.com. I am making these tonight, but needed to get the nutritional information. I left out the cinnamon, but added it to the recipe. This recipe does not have any oil, butter or pounds of sugar. In fact there’s only 1/4 cup of brown sugar.
I like maple syrup. And walnuts. Brownies too. I REALLY like these Maple Walnut Brownies from the King Arthur Flour Baker's Catalogue. These dense, chewy bars are a nice change of pace from the usual pumpkin- and apple-based fall desserts.
Hearty, yummy, and even fairly healthy (if you want it to be!). These are not like granola bars but more like a brownie with a nice crust. Originally taken from BH&G "New Cook Book", 1989--now that I live overseas, I love these older cookbooks because so many of the recipes are still "from scratch" and don't use convenience products that are too expensive or haven't come here yet. Thanks to my Grams for sending it to me when I moved! :)
These are rich and melt in your mouth - very much like a banana cake. Toffee and banana go so well together. I think these would also be good using almond extract. These are fabulous for a coffee break, dessert or a sinful breakfast. You can use any brand of toffee pieces such as Skor or Heath, just make sure they are not chocolate covered. ***NOTE: I wrote out the amounts for the sugar in the bars and the butter in the icing because Food.com wasn't recognizing "1/3". Hence, these amounts are not included in the nutritional value***
