Alice Cakes

I have multiple recipes for Alice Cakes, but I don’t remember eating these growing up. But there are many recipes I have encountered that are unfamiliar to me, that’s one of the pleasures of baking for this blog, I get to discover all sorts of new treats.

Wonder Bites

This is another remarkably simple recipe.  Chopped nuts, cherries and coconut, covered in chocolate.  There is a little bit of coffee essence in the recipe, but to be honest, I didn’t notice a discernible coffee taste from these Wonder Bites.

Well, I say this is an easy recipe and it looks remarkably simple.  My baking went something like this…

Iced Christmas Pudding

We’re feeling very festive here in the Traybakes’ household.  Little Miss Traybakes decorated our Christmas tree a couple of weeks ago.  We’ve already had a few snowfalls.  And our mission to introduce mince pies to the Americans continues.  It’s mostly been successful too!

So, I thought I’d try to sneak in a quick blog post before Christmas.  What to make?!  Then I remembered a recipe that Mummy Traybakes first made many years ago for Iced Christmas Pudding.  I have no idea where this recipe comes from, but like many of the traybake recipes, it’s probably been passed around for years.

Poor Man’s Florentines

I know that I claim that a lot of these recipes are incredibly easy to make, but this one has to be near the top of the list of easy traybakes.  It was quick to assemble and really only requires some chopping, butter melting and biscuit crushing.

Now, this is my third attempt at making a florentine style traybake.  The two previous recipes hadn’t been very successful, so I was taking quite a gamble trying yet another florentine recipe!  But this one worked!  And they are rather yummy.

Yum Yum Cakes

This was a new traybake for me, but at the same time there is something familiar about it.  Perhaps I have eaten it in the past or maybe it’s just the combination of ingredients.  Or maybe the meringue layer made me start to think about pavlova…

Apollo Brownies

Another unusually named traybake.  It may be named after the son of Zeus, it may be named after the NASA space missions, it may even be named after the Battlestar Galactica character.  Who knows?! (Seriously, if anyone does know, I’d be interested to find out.)

This traybake was remarkably easy to make – chop, crush, melt and mix and pop it into the oven.

Date and Nut Traybake

This recipe was a first for me.  Until now, the blog has featured recipes that I have either made before or eaten before.  This one was new to me, but it sounded interesting, and as there are going to be many more unknown recipes as I work my way through these books, I may as well start somewhere.

My recipe book calls this ‘Chinese Chews’ but I’m rather stumped by this as I can’t see what exactly makes them Chinese.  So I took the liberty of renaming them.
