It was fun making these Wontons with my daughter, although we will need more lessons on how to fold them. 

This Lemon Delicious Pudding takes me back to my childhood. I can remember on special occasions my grandmother (father's mother) would make it. The wheat based recipe was handed to my mother & then me. Of course it was only a matter of time before I converted it to a gluten-free recipe. 

I had an interesting time converting the wheat based recipe that appeared in the June edition of delicious. magazine. Consequently there are two recipes for Chocolate & Walnut Butter Fudge Cake

This Speckled Choc Orange Cake is an adaption of Michelle's Orange Cake with a titch of grated chocolate folded through. The cake can be iced with Orange icing (as shown) or with a dark chocolate ganache for that extra chocolate hit. Delicious!

Here is a list of the top 15 most viewed recipes on the website. After a bit of a tussle Turkish Pide is back at number 1. Most of the recipes use the Real Bread Mix (original), non-bread recipes can be found in Recipes-Extra Special.

  1. Turkish Pide
  2. Vanilla Slice
  3. Sourdough
  4. Berry Baci
  5. Plain Donuts
  6. Hot Cross Buns
  7. Chocolate Espresso Truffle Tart
  8. Sticky Date Pudding
  9. Fabulous Flaky Pastry
  10. Choc & Sultana Hot Cross Buns
  11. Breezy Lemon Slice
  12. Croissants
  13. Cowboys
  14. YoYos
  15. Easy Peasy Chocolate Cupcakes

At long last I have put recipes on the website of some of the remaining DA Original savoury biscuits. They are members of the Twisted range & include Totally Twisted, Exseedingly Twisted & Plainly Twisted. These recipes can be accessed by Subscribers & can be found in the Savoury Biscuit category of All Recipes.  

This Spicy Chocolate Cake is spiced up with a tad of chilli for an extra tingle. When eating the cake the flavour of cinnamon develops first, then chocolate & this is followed by the warmth of chilli - I love it, especially with cream! 



There is a first time for everything & I have to say I was really happy with my home made Gyoza. The recipe can be found in Extra Special & under Savoury Stuff in All recipes.

Do you love Sticky Date pudding? Maybe these Sticky Date Cookies will be your new favourites - I have mine with a hot chocolate.


Pork Buns

Another converted recipe but this time it is savoury. This recipe is an adaptation of Hamish Ingham's Pork Buns; it featured in the April 2015 edition of delicious. magazine. Both the stock & bun recipe were converted to gluten free - they are so good.
