Lemon Butter Slice

I made this lemon butter slice for sharing at a BBQ . This was a hit. When Lemons are in season try this recipe for a change and to use all the lemons. 🙂 The texture of the slice was  very beautiful, soft and some times I felt like calling this a lemon mud cake slice. It had the texture very close to a mud cake.

The tangy flavour of the lemons made this slice to be a hit. You can serve this as a dessert too. I think hot custard with lemon juice in it will make this slice more decadent for a dessert.

Instead of lemons you can use limes or oranges too. I think the pineapple juice will be nice too.

When you  bake this make sure to bake the slice only 30 minutes. Donot bake more than that.

 

This is how it was when taken out from the oven

I did the icing on top
Leave the icing to set.
Cut in to pieces.
Sprinkle more icing if you wish.

Hazelnut & Chocolate Slice

I couldn’t stop eating this slice. I love this a lot. Hazelnuts and chocolate goes really well with each other. Adding Irish cream makes it more rich in taste too. Make sure to roast the hazel nuts before using.

I have done this slice a lot of times. But if I make it at home I am the one who finishes it all the time. Once with out adding any cream I added only Irish cream. OMG the taste was awesome. if you are serving kids do not add any liqueur. You can add different flavours that goes well with the chocolate.

Lime or Lemon Slice (Simple Baking)

Limes and lemons are season. Those who are having so many limes or lemons always try to do different types of recipes with them. This is one way of doing a simple lime slice.

In this you can always try adding lemon or lime juice or even another type of a citrus type. too. This will be a good idea for St. Patrick’s day too. I added a drop of green colour to this to give nicer and a brighter colour.

I loved this slice a lot. It has a unique tangy flavour to its own. You can add the colour of the citrus to give it a brighter look.

Passionfruit & Marshmallow Slice

Passionfruit is tropical fruit that contains lots of vitamins and minerals. Though it is sweet and tarty in flavour when you add in to sweets it gives the best flavour ever. Adding the seeds in to the dessert gives a beautiful look to a dessert too.

You can buy passion fruit as a pulp. But it contains a lot sugar. If you are mixing it in sweets make sure not to add lots of sugar. But if you are using fresh passionfruit make sure to add sugar. I used sweetened passionfruit in this recipe.

When selecting marshmallows for this recipe try buying one colour. Once I did with several colours and came out with another beautiful colour.

When you add the passionfruit on to the base and leave overnight it becomes softer and melt in the mouth. Make sure to put in fridge all the time and also you can cut and freeze the slice with out a problem.

Vegetable Stack from Scratch

 

Recently I went out with some of my colleagues  from my former workplace.  We went to a very famous corner café in Melbourne. I got the chance to look at all the beautiful sweets and savouries. For a chef like me its always copy at  least one from each. I copycat a sweet which I will soon upload. This is the one my two beautiful friends ordered. The beautiful vegetable stack To tell the truth my imagination turned out 100 times better than the one I saw. One small size of a stack like 2x4x3 slice was $8.50.  The tray I made cost less than 15 dollars but worth like 100 dollars. Any way its all about labour cost.

When you do this slice , make sure to slice the vegetables thinly so you can have several colourful layers. First deep fry the egg plants and pat dry them well to take excess oil. You can do this step several days before and leave to absorb oil wrapped up in paper towels.

When you blanch the veggies make sure to do greens, pumpkins and carrots first. They don’t release colour to the boiling water. Next you can do the potatoes. If you wash  the potatoes well the water will not go thick with the starch. That depends on the variety of the potatoes too. Add the beetroot lastly as it releases the colour. Make sure to pat dry al of the on paper towels to reduce  releasing extra water in the slice.

If you are a vegetarian or a vegan omit the eggs and add like quarter cup of flour to almond milk or rice milk. As an option you can add fried tofu thinly sliced as a source of protein.

When you cool the slice completely it sets well and comes out nicely. This can be kept in fridge up to 4 days with out a problem.

Toblerone slice / Brownies

Some one can ask why you mix Toblerone in a slice with out having it on its own. This recipe is strong enough to break that argument. The mixture makes the Toblerone tastes nicer. The  crunches in the Toblerone makes the slice taste better as well as the cocoa makes the Toblerone tastes much better.

This slice is so simple and easy to make in few minutes. You don’t need a machine to mix too. This is a mix and bake recipe.
