We tasted: Chewy Anzac Biscuits

Who doesn’t love a good Anzac?

I suppose that could apply to the soldiers as well as the biscuits, but for this post we are most definitely talking about the biscuits.  Of course if it wasn’t for the soldiers then we wouldn’t have these tasty morsels baking in our ovens and filling our biscuits barrels.

Who even has a biscuit barrel?

I find the origin of these biccies heartwarming.  If you’re interested you can read about them here: ANZAC Biscuits.


By far, this is the best Anzac Biscuit recipe I have tried.  You can try it for yourself at Exclusively Food: Chewy Anzac Biscuit Recipe. along with a whole range of excellent recipes with step by step photographic instructions.

Super quick and easy this recipe gets a 10/10 rating from me. It also freezes well so you can make a couple of batches for later. If you prefer a crispier cookie then check out Exclusively Food’s other Anzac Biscuit recipe.

Do yourself a favor and fill a biscuit barrel, even if it’s simply so you can put your hand in and pull out a home-made Aussie Anzac for yourself.


We tasted: Strawberry Swirl Cupcakes

Tasty Rating: 10/10

You really NEED to stop everything and go make some.  Although if you are drinking a glass of wine, don’t stop, just pour another.  Because baking is always better with wine.


You can find the recipe here Strawberry Swirl Cupcakes Recipe – Taste.com.au.

I don’t usually like cupcakes or strawberry flavoured sweets for that matter.  There’s always an exception isn’t there?

Easily the quickest cupcakes I have ever made and apart from the strawberries you will find everything else in your pantry and if you can’t, should you really be baking?

They are perfect little pieces of summery deliciousness.   Mud cake in consistency with a sharp burst of fresh strawberry flavour AND the vanilla butter cream…


Need I say more?

Maybe I’ll just repeat myself.  Go and make some. Then make some more and freeze them (they freeze really well).  Then pour yourself another glass of wine.
