I haven't made these for a while so I hope the recipe is correct. 😃


100g butter

100g light brown soft sugar

50g golden syrup

200g oats

Sultanas - however many you like.


Melt the butter with the sugar and syrup - when melted add in the oats and sultanas - mix well

Place on a baking tray with greaseproof paper on and put in the oven. 

I would put them in the oven at 160 fan assisted and just keep my eye on them until cooked. 

If you like them extra sweet you can put melted chocolate on the top. 

They are great for after school and picnics or you could even put them in a cellophane bag tied up with a ribbon for you favourite teacher.  You can also add nuts and berries to make them extra filling. 

I would definitely have a cup of tea with some 😁




I use this easy fudge recipe anytime I want to give a sweet treat!

1 can condensed milk

350g dark chocolate or 400g milk chocolate or 450g white chocolate

First linel an 8"x8" square pan with baking parchment.

Chop up the chocolate, and place in a glass bowl. Pour over the condensed milk and microwave for 1 minute, stir and repeat, then microwave in 30 second increments until no unmelted chocolate is left.

Pour into lined pan immediately, then leave to set. 

There are so many flavour combinations to try

For Chocolate orange add 5-10ml orange extract to the milk chocolate version. Add 5-10ml peppermint extract to dark chocolate option, or 5-10ml of raspberry extract to white chocolate. Or add whatever is your favourite flavour!

Once set cut into 1" squares and package however you like

I have already had orders for my 'Bixies Loaf Cake', in fact I have 4 on order for the last week of term.

My niece goes to secondary school now so she told them about my cake and they have asked for a couple for their school fair. The others are for the primary school, I've made them for years now. They sell them by the slice to raise funds and then I get orders from parents for the entire cake to be made. I can't turn them down when the money goes to such good causes. 

Last year the parents offered between £7 and £10 for a cake that costs less than £3 to make.


Looks like I'm going to be busy again this year Smiley Happy

JAMMY DODGER CUPCAKES! IMG_4563.JPGClose up of the cupcake!IMG_4564.JPGJammy Dodger cupcakes really to go to my husband's place of work.


These are so yummy! It's a 3 part recipe but so worth it!


 Raspberry Compote - 400g frozen raspberries 100g caster sugar


 Sponge Cake - 125g self raising flour 125g caster sugar 125g unsalted butter, 2 eggs 1.5 tbsp whole milk 


Buttercream - 150g unsalted butter, soft 340g icing sugar, drop of vanilla essence.


Extras: Seedless Raspberry jam, mini jammy dodgers, piping bags x 2, cupcake corer or apple corer.



To make the compote: put your frozen raspberries in a pan with your caster sugar and place on a medium high heat until it reaches a boil. Then simmer for 10/15mins (stirring occasionally) until it becomes nice and thick. Sieve the mixture to get rid of all the seeds and put to one side to cool.


To make the sponge: Mix your caster sugar and butter until fully blended together. Then slowly add your flour and beaten eggs until all the ingredients are fully blended together and form a nice thick cake batter. Then put around 2 tablespoons of the raspberry compote into the cake batter but don't mix it in; just kind of loosely fold it in. Once this is done, spoon the mixture into your cupcake cases. Bake for around 20 mins at 170 degrees (i have a fan oven so adjust time and temp accordingly)


Whilst your cakes are cooking, make the buttercream.


To make the buttercream: Mix your butter and icing sugar together until fully blended then add a drop or 2 of vanilla essence and mix again.


When your cakes are cooked through (use a toothpick to check the cake is cooked through if unsure) allow to cook on a cooling rack. I then core my cupcakes with a cupcake corer (or an apple corer) and fill them with the seedless raspberry jam! Place your buttercream in a piping bag and pipe a swirl of frosting on each cupcake. In a seperate piping bag put a little of the seedless raspberry jam and pipe a splodge/drizzle on top of the buttercream on each cake. Finally decorate with a mini jammy dodger (or 2!) et voila.... jammy deliciousness!


And now i am officially drooling after writing my recipe up! Lol!

streusel-pudding-schnitten-beeren,id=de96483e,b=lecker,w=610,cg=c.jpgSummerberry cake

Summerberry cake




For 35 slices, you can of course just halve the recipe


  700 ml milk, 100 ml Advocaat

  2 sachets of vanilla blancmange

  3 tbsp + 500 g sugar

  500 g soft butter

  1 kg flour

  200 g raspberries

  250 g blueberries

  200 g blackberries

  400 grams strawberries

  Fat and flour for greasing and dusting

  Cling film


Bring 600 ml of milk and advocaat to a boil. Mix together blancmange powder, 3 tablespoons sugar and 100 ml of milk until smooth. Stir into the boiling milk, bring to the boil and simmer for about 1 minute until thickened. Remove from the heat. Put in a bowl and cover with clingfilm or sprinkle with a little sugar to prevent a skin forming, allow to cool.


Work together the 500 g sugar, butter and flour to make a crumble mixture. Wash the berries, drain well, if necessary cut large strawberries in half.


Spread 2/3 of the crumble on the bottom of a greased, flour-dusted baking sheet (mine measures 34 x 40 cm) and press down. Spread the blancmange evenly over the crumble and then top with the berries, finally spribkle with the rewmaing crumble.

Bake in a preheated oven, notmal oven 175C or fan assist

at 150C, remember ovens vary, for approx. 50 minutes, remove and allow to cool on a wire rack.


Lightly dust with icing sugar when cooled.


This cake is ok for kids to eat, the alcohol disappears while it is baking, you are just left with the flavour.


Vegan Chocolate and Coconut Fudge 




  • 1 tin Natures Charm sweetened condensed coconut milk
  • 14oz (400g) vegan chocolate or chocolate chips
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract


  1. Add the condensed milk to a microwave safe bowl.
  2. Break up the chocolate (if using bars) and add the chocolate to the bowl on top of the condensed milk.
  3. Place into the microwave and heat in 30-second intervals bringing out to stir every 30-seconds until melted and smooth.
  4. Add in the vanilla extract and stir in.
  5. Pour out into a parchment lined square dish or baking tin(I used a 9×9 inch tin). The fudge mixture might be quite thick in which case it won’t spread out to the corners of the dish; this isn’t an issue, just smooth it down on top with the back of a spoon so that it is as even as possible.
  6. Place into the freezer to set.
  7. When it has set, lift out the whole block of fudge by lifting the parchment paper and cut into squares.
  8. Keep refrigerated and enjoy.

This fudge is delicious for everybody, but it's nice to have something which can be shared without worrying about allergies or other dietary requirements

Meringue nest topped with flavoured Skyr yogurt and berries. 👌 always a hit.


millionaire- a favourite for kids,family,neighbours,carers & visitors

125g butter

50g c.sugar

175g flour

put in processor when all combined press in a foil lined swiss roll tin bake for 10-12 mins at gas mark 3- lightly golden.

125g butter

125g C.sugar

200ml condensed milk

2tbsp G.syrup

in a pan-med heat continually stirring until all combined and slightly darker in colour. Pour over base spreading if necessary. Chill in fridge when set melt

125g of chocolate of your choice pour over top and spread to edges,chill until set remove foil cut (with lge sharp knife) in half continue halving until you reach your desired size.( I find if you up-end slice,then slice down through you achieve a clean cut/edge to squares/rectangles)

pack in plastic boxes or cellophane bags.

Sometimes I make slight variations-tbs cocoa(lidl's own-best ever) to base mix and/or caramel,flavour to caramel eg. tsp or two any essence,salt,whiskey.

adding various toppings to chocolate before it sets eg.simple sprinkles,splattering of icing, raisins,nuts,mini marshmallows,crumbled honeycomb endless variations.

Brilliant it's the first full day of the school holidays, I always loved the summer holidays because the children were home longer.

Already the news is reporting that the holidays should be shortened.

The good thing about the summer is that children can get out and about if the weather is good. I must say it's dry here today but not a child in sight 😣

Too many spend their time on Games consoles or in front of the square screens around the house, what a waste.

I think our summer holidays were actually about 10 days longer than they are today.

I actually think it would be sensible to make the Christmas break longer than it is today.


I am off for the weekend in our new set of wheels so hopefully I will see children playing on the campsites. That is the bonus of these parks, we usually visit the ones with no signal for phones etc, so the children are not seen walking around ignoring the beauty around them that is the outdoors 😂

Respected Contributor

Children on campsites?  Ghastly - whatever next!! Smiley Very Happy Personally very happy with children that are not seen - or heard!! @tommiesgirl Still, hope you have a wonderful time - I am sure you will and enjoy getting to know your new motorhome.  Our lot don't break up until next Tuesday so still a short respite from the marauding hordes!!

Hello @Lidl and @lidler

IMG_7468.JPGWhen time is short I often cheat and buy plain cupcakes and have the little ones decorate them.

 When I do bake a family favourite is my fruit muffins or fruity muffy as my little one calls them!


Easy peasy to make and packed with sweet fruit...


225g plain flour

2tsp baking powder

2 large eggs

50g melted butter

175ml skimmed milk

100ml clear honey

140g fresh blueberries 

85g dried cranberries 

140g seedless raisins

1tsp ground cinnamon 




Preheat the oven to 180oc/ Gas mark 6


Sift the flour, baking powder and cinnamon in a bowl.


In another bowl beat the egg, melted butter, milk  and honey.


combine the egg mixture with the flour mixture and add the fruit. It doesn't matter if there is a lump or two, mine always has the odd lump and you want a gloopy consistency. 


Then spoon in the mixture into

a lightly buttered 12 hold muffin tin spoon and bake for about 20mins until risen and pale golden, leave to cool and enjoy!

Congratulations @Debbijane, I love the recipe. I intend on trying it with a recipe for Everton toffee I found in my Mums cookbook. It will be something for me and our grand-daughter to make when she comes to visit later this month, hopefully.

I hope you treat yourself to a little something personal as well @Debbijane.
