For the past months I looked all over the internet for interesting recipes, unique ones, those that’ll wow my family.. I actually forgot the recipes my Nanna taught me.
So I thought, why not put them together in a post? These old style recipes are the best – they’ve survived generations and they will still be a star in every family’s meal in the years to come.
Cornflake Biscuits…Remember having these delicious biscuits as a kid? My Grandma made the best in the whole world – this is her recipe! For something a bit spesh, cover them in chocolate with some sprinkles on top!
Try our Show Winning Recipe for Jam Drops – My Nanna’s Own Recipe! This is my Nanna Darlings Jam Drops recipe, they are light, fluffy and that gooey jam centre.. boy oh boy! We have put a party twist on this country show winning classic! Stay tuned.
If you love pumpkin then this gorgeous Pumpkin Scones recipe is a keeper! They are fluffy and delicious, perfect with jam and cream, or some golden syrup and butter… Hmmmm yum!!!! This is a great way to use up any leftover mashed pumpkin you might have left in your fridge!
Golden Syrup Steamed Pudding is my all time favourite dessert. I’ve been eating this since I was young and I hope to pass it on to my boys for them to make for their families one day. Serve it with ice cream!
This Lemonade Scones recipe makes super light scones, lovely for morning or afternoon tea, or anytime really!
Coconut Jam Slice – just like Nanna used to make! This recipe is an oldie but a goodie delicious biscuit base with a jam filling and deliciously sweet coconut topping! Who said it had gone out of fashion? It is also known in New Zealand as ‘Louise Slice’.
Haven’t heard of it? This is an old style sponge cake that doesn’t involve all the fuss of beating egg whites. You literally throw in all the ingredients and voila! A perfect buttery sponge!
Rock Cakes might not sound very appetising but these little babies will surely become a family favourite.
Also known as Flummery, Jelly Whip is a rich fun dessert for the whole family! The great thing about this two ingredient Jelly Whip recipe is that it can easily feed a family of four for only $4! So cheap!
Chocolate Pound Cake is an old fashioned frugal recipe to feed the hordes! Best of all – it freezes beautifully! Ahh…drooling right now.
