I usually make the same things most weeks, lollie cake or coconut slice, chocolate or banana cake and then just some choc chip biscuits.

Wanting to change a few things around and experiment a bit more.

Would appreciate hearing your favs, might give me some ideas to put in lunches! :)

afghan slice, its the afghan biscuit recipe in the edmonds recipe book, pressed into a slice tin instead of being rolled into biscuits. Its sooo easy. Ice when cold and cut into squares. Its a hit, everybody who has it loves it. p.s I double the cocoa to half a cup.

I find muffins great for lunches. I put them in the freezer and just take them out as needed.The Alison Holst ABC muffins are a favourite round here.

DUTCH APPLE CAKE

125g Butter
1 Cup Sugar
2 eggs
1 1/4 Cup warm smooth as apple sauce

2 Cups Flour (plain, wholemeal or a mix of)
1 teaspoon Baking Soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 1/2 teaspoon Cinnamon
3/4 teaspoon cloves

2 Diced apples
1 Cup Raisins
! Cup Macadamia nuts (or nut of choice)

Mix sugar and butter then add eggs 1 at a time.

Slowly add apple sauce and mix well.

Stir in flour and dry ingredients.

Add diced apple, raisins and nuts.

Line a baking tin and bake at 180 for approx 45 mins.

This is the most moistest cake and soft cake out!! It makes a big cake and I always double it and freeze one:)

If you have it, you can replace the Cinnamon with a dutch spice mix called "Speculaas spice" and its just as Devinne!!

For someone who loves anything caramel this quick and easy, and equally as yummy slice has got to be my favourite.....(and it's a great use for that ½ can sweetened condensed milk that remains after making lolly cake)

CARAMEL CRUMBLE
Very like Tan Slice but just stirred together with no creaming of the butter and sugar. As its name suggests its topping is more crumbly but personally I like it better - to make and to eat!!

Caramel Topping:
½ x 395g can sweetened condensed milk
2 tbsp golden syrup,
¼ cup brown sugar
55g (2oz) butter

Mix all the topping ingredients together in a bowl over hot water for 5 minutes, then allow the mixture to cool slightly.

Base:
1½ cups flour
1 tsp baking powder
115g (½ cup) sugar
½ tsp vanilla essence,
115g (4oz) melted butter

Place all the dry ingredients in a bowl, then add the vanilla essence and the melted butter and mix to a fairly soft crumbly consistency. Press approximately two thirds-three quarters of this crumbly mixture into a greased sponge roll tin, then spread the caramel topping over. Sprinkle over the remaining crumble mixture.
Bake at 180ºC for 20-30 minutes.
Allow to cool then cut into fingers or squares.:-))

My favourite biscuit is shortbread from the Edmonds book, so quick and easy and much more delicious than any you can buy. Scones are a regular for me also, very versatile, quick and easy and can be savoury or sweet whichever you fancy.

Sultana Loaves from the Edmonds book also get made over and over.

I always double up on everything.
