About Me

What can I say?? I just love to bake!! Ever since I would go to Grandma's house as a little girl and bake highlight cakes or help Ninny make her famous vanilla cookies, I've been obsessed with baking! Not only from recipe books, but freestyle too! With a father as a chef, i suppose it is in my genes! Some of my favourite memories from growing up were those moments after dinner when my dad would get his sweet tooth pang and have me help him whip up a batch of toffee fruit kebabs, or irish caramels! I used to love how he never followed recipes, he always just knew what ingredients worked with one another and how to play with quantities. So, from an early age, i had learnt from the master and i was well on my way to bake on my own! When i was 7 years old, i used to bake chocoloate cakes to sell to the mothers of my friends when they came to watch our Saturday morning minkey hockey games! Before i knew it, i was being commissioned from my school teachers to bake cakes for them at $2 a pop! This blog holds just a few of my favourite tried and tested recipes which I've thoroughly enjoyed both baking and eating! So enjoy!!

Darl's Rhubarb & Apple Crumble

My grandpa Darl just loves an Apple Crumble, and this recipe is not only delicious, but very, VERY quick and easy to make!   A winner all round.

 - 10 stalks rhubarb
 - 4 Apples
 - 1/4 cup sugar
 - Pinch of cinnamon
 Crumble Topping
 - 1/4 cup melted butter
 - 1/3 cup brown sugar
 - 2/3 cup oats
 - 2/3 plain flour


1)  String the rhubarb and peel the apples, then cut into cubes.

2)  Place fruit in a small saucepan with a splash of water and the sugar and cinnamon.  Simmer for 10 minutes.

3)  In the meantime, mix all of the crumble topping together in a bowl.

4)  Spoon the stewed fruit into a baking dish and then cover with crumble topping, pressing down firmly.

5)  Bake in a moderate oven (180'C) for 25 minutes.

6)  Serve hot out of the oven with custard or ice cream!
