Recipe Recommendation

17120339544.jpgI love recipe recommendations. Belinda (another Belinda) who I went to school with recommended another slice out of our  high school Home Economics cookbook – Day to Day Cookery.  She recommended the Quick Mix Slice.  It is seriously the easiest thing I have ever cooked and also pretty delicious.  Ben absolutely loved it (more than the Chocolate Slice).  Here it is (Straight from the stained pages.  I was relieved to hear that others Day to Day Cookery Books had seen better days…. missing covers and pages!) –


Enjoy and thanks Belinda xo

Old Fashioned Chocolate Slice

No this is not a Chocolate Brownie……. it’s good old fashioned Chocolate Slice that our Mum’s made us (it is soooo much nicer than a chocolate brownie!!).  When we were out in Chinchilla last weekend someone at Tom’s party had baked Chocolate Slice.  As I ate a piece childhood memories came flashing back.

MMmmmmm I love Chocolate Slice.

So this weekend the healthier version on myself had a little relapse.  I made Chocolate Slice.


I found a recipe in my old school textbook (I think this book has seen better days – it is twenty-four years old).

Here is the recipe straight from the stained pages ….ewwww!  I must have been one messy cook when I was learning!!!


It really is a delicious simple recipe.  To make it a little healthier you could replace the white flour with wholemeal and the white sugar with rapadura.

Enjoy xo
