1  COOKING / Dessert / Easy Baked Lemon Cheesecake on: August 24, 2008 02:28:28 AM

2  COOKING / Dessert / Marble Ice Cream Cone Cupcakes on: August 01, 2008 10:48:58 PM
I made a marble cake batter of chocolate, strawberry and vanilla. I was aiming for the neopolitan look. Then I baked the cake batter into some ice cream cones.  Some I overfilled but I guess that added to the effect.  I didn't ice them but would look nice with some swirled up frosting as well.

I doubled this recipe and got 16 cone cupcakes.

Marble Small Cakes

60g butter
1/3 cup sugar
1 egg
1 cup self-raising flour
vanilla
1/4 cup milk

Cream butter and sugar. Add in vanilla.

Beat in egg.

Add flour and milk alternately and mix lightly into a soft dough.

Split equally into three separate bowls. Leave one plain, colour one pink and add cocoa to the third (helps to dissolve cocoa in a little water first before adding to the batter).

Spoon dollops of each batter into cones or papers til 3/4 full. Swirl to form marble effect.

Bake in moderate oven for 10-15 mins until cooked.

3  COOKING / Dessert / Chocolate Sour Cream Fudge Cake on: July 21, 2008 06:01:47 AM
I had some sour cream in the fridge that had to be used up so of course I had to make cake. 

This is a Chocolate Sour Cream Fudge Cake filled with Cookies and Cream filling and iced with Vanilla Buttercream.

5  COOKING / Dessert / Yummy Doggies on: July 15, 2008 03:51:59 AM
How cute are these? I made these this morning for the kids afterschool treat. They are a crunchy malt biscuit with chocolate chips and milo cereal ears.

I saw these cute little doggies on this blog http://happyhomebaking.blogspot.com/2007/01/horlicks-doggie-cookies.html. I modified the recipe a bit. The kids loved them and thought they were cute. They are not very sweet but that is a good thing. The sweetness only comes from the chocolate chips and the Milo cereal.

Here is my version

Malt Doggies Biscuits (makes 45 biscuits)

180g soft butter
80g malt powder
200g plain flour
25g corn flour
25g milk powder
100g chocolate chips
some chocolate hail(eyes)
some Milo cereal(ears)

Method:
Pre-heat oven to 140deg C. Line baking tray with baking paper and set aside.

Sieve plain flour, corn flour and milk powder.

Cream butter and malt powder.

Put in plain flour, cornflour and milk powder and beat for about one minute to form dough.

Divide dough into 10g each. Put three chocolate chips into each piece of dough and roll into balls.
Insert two pieces of Milo cereal to form the 'ears', chocolate hail for the "eyes", and a chocolate chip in the centre for the 'nose'.

Bake at 140 deg C for about 25 minutes. Depending on your oven, it may take another 5 to 10 minutes more for the cookies to be ready.

Leave to cool on wire rack before storing in an airtight container

Unbaked - ready to go into the oven

All done, cooled and ready to eat!



6  COOKING / Dessert / Cross Christening Cake on: June 29, 2008 05:19:34 AM

7  COOKING / Dessert / Chocolate Zucchini Cake as requested on: June 18, 2008 05:28:52 PM
A number of people have requested this recipe after veiwing my Topsy Turvy Cake http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=252378.0 ,  so here it is. 

I make it for the kids as a special treat but I also know it contains some vegetable so it is only half bad. It is a great recipe that produces a moist, fudgelike cake that I have used many times and as a base for birthday cakes. It is absolutely delicious and enjoyed by everyone. I don't often tell people it has zucchini in it until after they have eaten it and they are truly amazed.

Chocolate Zucchini Cake

2 1/2 cups plain flour, 2 1/2 teaspons bicarb soda, 1 teaspoon cinnamon, 3 eggs, 2 cups grated unpeeled zucchini, 1/2 cup cocoa, 1 teaspoon salt, 2 cups sugar, 2 teaspoons vanilla, 1/2 cup milk 3/4 cup butter.
(*Optional add 1 cup chopped walnuts/pecans if you wish, I usually omit just in case nut allergies)

Combine flour, cocoa, soda, salt, cinnamon - set aside. Beat butter, sugar until smooth and creamy. Add eggs one at a time, beat well. Stir in vanilla and zucchini. Alternatively add dry ingredients and milk into zucchini mixture (add nuts now if using). Pour into greased and floured 9" x 13" (23cm x 33cm) pan. Bake in moderate oven for 45-60 minutes. Cool in pan for 20 mins. Turn out and ice with chocolate frosting. This cake freezes well.

Enjoy!
8  COOKING / Dessert / Topsy Turvy Cake on: June 18, 2008 02:51:06 PM
Here is my Topsy Turvy Cake that I made for a friends birthday.

The bottom layer is Chocolate Zucchini Cake, the middle is Caramel Mudcake and the top is White Almond and Sour Cream Cake.  Filled with Buttercream and then White Chocolate Fondant.

I don't think it turned out too bad.  It isn't as smooth as I would have liked in the purple layer.






9  COOKING / Dessert / Oreo Balls Bouquet on: June 18, 2008 06:50:59 AM
I know there are tons of Oreo Balls recipes on here and I have enjoyed everyone of them.  So I decided to give it a go. 

So here is my version.  I made them up and found some mini cookies and placed them on top and put them onto wooden skewers.  Then I clustered them up to make an Oreo Ball Bouquet!
