Fudge Squares

This is not a recipe for traditional fudge. There is no need for a thermometer or trying to reach the ‘soft ball’ stage with your sugar mix. These Fudge Squares are an easy, no-bake traybake where you mix a caramel syrup with crushed biscuits and top it all with chocolate. Yum!

Mint Aero Traybake

Amazingly, my little blog is now over a year old!  Belated Birthday Greetings to the blog and a huge thank you to everyone out there who has liked, read, commented and (most importantly) baked this past year.  To celebrate, here’s another classic traybake – the Mint Aero Square/Slice/Traybake!

Paradise Squares

I won’t try to claim that these traybakes will transport you to a tropical island.  If that is your idea of paradise.  Perhaps your idea of paradise is sitting in my kitchen in the middle of a New England winter watching Little Miss Traybakes paint a masterpiece with her new watercolor set while ignoring the housework?  No?!  Unfortunately, that’s all that I can offer right now.  That, and a recipe for these Paradise Squares traybakes.

Mars Bar Traybake

I’ve never been a big fan of the Mars Bar.  I would never buy one in a shop.  Although if you offered me a mini Mars Bar, I probably would take it.   For some reason, I think they taste better than the full-sized bars.

But, the Mars Bar Traybake is a different story altogether!  Somehow, a melted Mars Bar, mixed with Rice Krispies (other puffed rice cereals are available) transforms it into a very yummy, crispy, chewy treat that is hard to refuse!

Apple Traybake

There’s a chill in the air in the mornings, the trees are changing into a variety of reds and golden tones, there are tour buses full of ‘leaf-peepers’ stopping off in my historic New England town on their way to find the best foliage…and Little Miss Traybakes has been asking for some time now when we are going apple picking!

Yes, it’s Autumn again!  Or Fall, if you prefer.

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…

S’mores Traybake

Ever since I started this blog, I’ve spent a lot of time thinking about baking and traybakes and baking traybakes…and after a while, I began to think about making some ‘new’ traybakes (hey, the classics all had to start somewhere!)

Living in the US, we have been introduced to s’mores and they have been a firm favorite in our house ever since – especially with Little Miss Traybakes.  For anyone who doesn’t know what a s’more is, you sandwich a piece of chocolate and a toasted marshmallow between two graham crackers (which are more or less like digestives) and then attempt to eat it without getting too much sticky marshmallow all over your face and hands (or is that just Little Miss Traybakes?!)

Pineapple Delight

I received several requests to feature this recipe on the blog, so I’m hoping it’s a favourite for a few more of you out there!

I held off making this for a while as all versions of the recipe that I have contain raw egg and I was a little wary about making a traybake with raw egg in it (although I’m not at all wary about licking the bowl after I’ve just made cake or cookies…yes, I obviously have double standards).  Then I decided to just make this traybake without the egg and see how it worked.  And it worked out fine.  But, if you’re not averse to a bit of raw egg in your baking, then go ahead and add an egg to the buttercream layer.

Malteser Squares

This isn’t a recipe I remember from my childhood, so whether it’s a more ‘modern’ traybake or just one that Mummy Traybakes didn’t make until I was older, I’m not sure.  However, I think it’s one that definitely deserves a place on my (rather long and expanding) list of favourite traybakes.
