Acting like some kind of 50s housewife

I have my parents over for Christmas for the first time this year and I want to make sure we have some lovely desserts for Christmas Eve and Christmas day tea. I used two recipies from the Green & Black's Cookbook. If you're not aware, Green & Black make amazing oganic chocolate (see here for more info if you're interested)

First up, the Chocolate Mousse Cake. Suitable for those with gluten issues, it's made of chocolate (a whopping 300g), sugar, eggs and ground almonds.


I then made the Lemon Drizzle Cake with Sunken Chocolate Chunks


I finished up with an old favourite, Anzac biscuits. My gran, who sadly passed away this year, always made them. I recomend them with a cup of coffee. Here's a sample:

These look delicious!  What are anzac cakes, exactly?  I've never heard of them, but they look like they have a nice texture.

Anzac biscuit (=cookies) are made from oats, dessicated coconut, golden syrup, sugar and a little butter. They're dead easy. A version of the recipe can be found here. Mine is in the kitchen and I'm too lazy to fetch it  Tongue One thing I've found is to flatten out the mixture once you've put it on the baking tray, otherwise you get doughy biscuits and not crisp snappy ones like I like!

The other recipies are from a cook book and I'm not sure if I can give them out as they are published. You could use any lemon drizzle cake recipie and stir in chocolate pieces before baking to get a similar cake. I would leave the chocolate chunks bigger than I did next time.

Thanks for your comments Cheesy

Thank you for the recipe for the Anzac biscuits & I am doing a search for lemon drizzle cake. I love anything lemony. Smiley  The Anzac biscuits sound as heavenly.

Lemon drizzle cake, oh my. Imagine adding some almond extract into either the dough or the drizzle and how that would taste with the lemon! And some poppyseed with it? Mmm... I feel an intense desire to bake that when I head back to my home after the family holidays are through. :-)
