good, but VERY pepperminty... think I might try 1/2 oz of peppermint schnapps next time.UPDATE: I did 1/2 oz schnapps and it was MUCH better!-26 Dec 2009
by Jean Guarino
This is very minty, next time I'll just add a drop or two of schnapps. This drink is also excellent with Godiva chocolate liquor. I recommend a two drink limit with this tasty cocktail! It is so delicious and goes down very smoothly. I think it may be the large amount of sugar in the drink because the headache the next morning is quite awful!-18 Jan 2011
Prepared as listed. Was a huge success at my party. Several people had seconds, I had thirds. ;-) I actually ran out. One note: if you're going to be using 10oz martini glasses the batch listed really only makes one glass.-01 Jan 2010

- 1 (.25 ounce) package unflavored gelatin
- ¼ cup cold water
- 1 cup white sugar
- 4 tablespoons all-purpose flour
- ½ teaspoon salt
- 1 ½ cups milk
- ¾ teaspoon vanilla extract
- 1 cup flaked coconut
- ½ cup heavy whipping cream
- 3 egg whites
- ¼ teaspoon cream of tartar
- 1 (9 inch) pie crust, baked
- 2 tablespoons flaked coconut
Sprinkle gelatin over cold water set aside to soften.
Combine 1/2 cup sugar, flour, and salt in a saucepan. Gradually stir in milk. Cook over low heat, stirring until it boils. Boil for 1 minute, and remove from heat. Transfer to a large bowl. Stir in softened gelatin. When partially set, beat with a rotary mixer until smooth. Blend in vanilla and 1 cup coconut.
Whip the cream until stiff. Gently fold into coconut mixture.
In a clean bowl, beat egg whites until frothy. Beat in cream of tartar and 1/2 cup sugar. Continue beating until egg whites form stiff peaks. Fold into coconut mixture. Pile filling into cooled pie shell. Sprinkle with additional coconut. Chill pie for at least 2 hours or overnight.
White Truffle Cake Ingredients
The sponge layer only has three ingredients. Eggs, sugar and flour. It&rsquos a simple sponge that compliments a rich truffle layer very well.
The truffle layer also consists of three ingredients. White chocolate, whipping cream or double cream and mascarpone.
The fat content in both cream and mascarpone is responsible for the ability of this white chocolate truffle layer to set. Using lower fat dairy and chocolate chips will result in the truffle not setting.
Tips for making White Chocolate Truffle Cake
- I live in England and what I have found through 4 years of blogging is that dairy products differ between countries, especially mascarpone cheese. Ours comes from Italy and made with no stabilisers and is higher in fat, so for best results buy the highest quality ingredients you can afford.
- Also the fat content of double cream in England is 48%, which is responsible for the firmness of the truffle layer. Mix the mascarpone in after the chocolate and cream mixture cools.
- Overbeating mascarpone will result in the mixture splitting.
- The chocolate has to be measured by weight. 12 oz equals 3 ½ chocolate bars, avoid chocolate chips.
- Please read the recipe directions and all comments before starting on your cake. Enjoy!
Update: So because I love you all and it&rsquos Christmas I finally filmed a video, so now you can see exactly how this cake made!
Watch for the consistency of the truffle layer in the extended video in the recipe card to ensure yours sets properly and is ready to wow everyone at Christmas dinner!
One dessert that he can’t say no to, though, is my grandmother’s Christmas pie. It’s something that she made every Christmas, and I am sure that’s why. You know, the whole childhood/nostalgia thing. I mean, besides that fact that it’s delicious, of course.
My grandmother was a phenomenal cook. Everything she made was delicious. And visually perfect. I wish I had her eye for detail. Maybe one of these days I’ll have the time to perfectly measure my cookie dough then roll it into perfect little balls so that every cookie is the same size and shape. Not that she wasn’t busy, but perfection in the kitchen was important to her.
Christmas Dessert Recipe
Anyway, back to Christmas pie. Honestly, I do not remember it. Not.One.Bit. I don’t remember her ever making it, though I’m told (as I mentioned before) that she made it every Christmas. As a kid I hated coconut, so that’s probably why I don’t remember this pie.
It’s okay, though. When you have an aunt who loves to cook as much as you do and as much as her mother did, and who has amazingly organized binders of all of her favorite recipes, you can always ask for the recipe. That’s just what I did.
Easy Christmas Recipe
This Christmas pie recipe is just as my grandmother made it. I did add a little decoration, you know, for pictures. Everything else, though…it’s exactly as my aunt wrote it down. No cheating here, and no embellishment.
Really, this Christmas pie is so simple, it just reminds you that food doesn’t have to be difficult or fancy to be perfect and tasty. This delicious Christmas dessert takes a little time, but every step is so easy! Definitely worth it to bring back my dad’s childhood memories.
Eggnog French Toast Bake
A Pretty Life in the Suburbs
Creamy, decadent, and spiced with nutmeg, eggnog is so rich it's probably a good thing we're only treated to it during the holiday season. But because it's a limited-time treat, and because Christmas only happens once a year, why not indulge while it's here?
This French toast recipe will remind you of bread pudding, but it's especially on-brand for the holidays because it's made with eggnog and spiced with cinnamon. You can prep it overnight so it's ready to bake in the morning, then drizzle it with a homemade caramel sauce.
Want to switch things up this year? Don't miss these 19 Best Non-Traditional Christmas Dinner Recipes.
“Great eggnog without the worry of the raw eggs. The spices in here really make this a nice treat. Wonderfully seasoned and tasty!”
The traditional Italian cannoli is officially transformed into a chocolate blanket-covered delicious eggnog filling, with a dust of powdered sugar for oomph!
HOW TO MAKE CREAMY CHRISTMAS PUNCH
This punch only has a few steps. First you dissolve sugar in hot water, then add evaporated milk and almond extract. (The almond extract is what gives this punch its delicious flavor.)
You can make this mixture up a couple days ahead and just store it in the fridge if you want. Makes for super easy preparation the day you want to serve it!
When you&rsquore ready to serve the punch, pour the cooled milk mixture into a large punch bowl. Scoop the ice cream on top, and use a potato masher to smash the ice cream till it is smooth and creamy. It is fine if it has a few small chunks.
Next slowly pour in your 7UP®, Sprite®, or other lemon lime soda. It gives the punch that yummy fizz that everyone loves!
That&rsquos it! Your punch is ready to serve as is, or you can top it with whipped cream. Everyone will rave about it!

Just made the lemonade scones and they were a hugh hit, the whole batch is gone. Will be recommending this site to everyone I know. Thanks.
The Carrot Cake is amazing - everyone at work wants the recipe. Extremely moist, really quick to make. I think you could halve the icing though - I had lots left over to eat. :-)
Thankyou so much, all the recipes are to DIE FOR. so tasty! keep up the good work!
Thanks for the receipes, it made me feel like i was at home in Australia again, growing up many of these receipes were made in our house and enjoyed by all, well done.
Thanks for the great recipes! im only 12 years old and love cooking!
these recipes are easy to follow for me unlike most i get off the internet!
Without doubt your website has some of the best recipes on the net. There are THOUSANDS of sites with great recipes but so many have flaws - unlike yours.
I have not followed one of your recipes to date where I have been disappointed with the result.
Every recipe is easy to follow and tastes brilliant.
Your cake recipes are delicious and so easy to make! Do you have a recipe for apple and cinnamon muffins? I would love it!
We will try adapting the blueberry muffin recipe to include apple and cinnamon (leaving out the blueberries). We'll let you know how they turn out.
This is a great website and the recipes are awesome. So far the recipes that I've used have all been loved by everyone. Thankyou!
This is the perfect website. I have looked for something like this for months and have bought numerous cookery books to find only a few recipies worth using. Just made the chicken crepes and they were delicious.Everything looks so great. Will you have any salad or barbeque recipes for summer?
Thank you for a wonderful website. I made Apple pie and Beef & red wine pie for my hubby. He loves them. He doesn't beleive that the Asian girl like me can do the perfect Aussie dishes. I told him that I got all the recipe from this website. So..there are a lot of dishes awaiting for me to explore! Thanks again.
By the way, do you have the recipe of "Apple turnover with creme"? Appreciated your suggestion, thank you in advance.
We are pleased that you have had success with our recipes. Unfortunately, we don't currently have a recipe for apple turnover with cream.
We will be adding some more salad recipes for summer.
I've been baking these sweet recipes from your website for a while now and they are an absolute SENSATION - easy to follow, absolutely delicious, and of course beautifully presented with those wonderful photos.
My three little sibblings and parents are incredibly indebted to the two of you.
The strawberry/raspberry white chocolate muffins are a hit, as are the chunky choc cookies, the condensed milk slice, the pear and pecan crumble cake and the pecan loaf.
Just wondering whether you have any healthier alternative recipes that I could try out? Our family is kind of big on the whole 'organic' and low sugar low gluten low fat etc etc etc.
This is a wonderful website! Your recipes are great. So easy to follow and delicious! I would love to see a good shortbread and white christmas recipe and any other recipes for Christmas cooking you may have. Thank you!!

just love your site i have cooked a lot of your recipes ty
hey this is the best website i have ever found, there is no other website that is so easy and simple to use! i'm 16 and in year 12 and am i'm doing an assignment on alfresco dining but there is no information that is helpful, if you have any information or any useful websites.please let me know ASAP. thank you.
Please email us with some more details on the type of information you are looking for and we'll try to help.
I LOVE YOU :) I have just stumbled across your website and it is the most friendly, yummy, well presented recipe website ever. I have just printed about 20 recipes to try over the next few weeks and I can't wait to start. I am sure my family are going to be very happy with the answer for "whats for dinner".
I can't beleive it has taken me so long to discover your website. Everything l have made so far has been a success. I love your precise recipes, descriptions and photos, they are a great tool to refer to while cooking.
Just trying to decide what l will bake next!
Although the recipes sound delicious, i am unable to use them, as they do not appear to have preparation and cooking timings. As i only have an hour and a half each friday to cook, i cannot use some of the recipes i would enjoy to make, in my Food Technology course. Great website though, and extremely easy to use!
I use your recipes all the times and have not had a failure yet. The only problem I have is that you tend to use expensive chocolate and I can only afford to use compound cooking chocolate. Does this affect the taste or quality dramtically?
We can notice a significant difference between a cake, biscuit or slice made with compound chocolate and one made with eating chocolate or good quality cooking chocolate. Because chocolate is expensive, we try to purchase a number of blocks when it is on special.
If you like the flavour and texture of compound chocolate, then you could certainly use it in our recipes.
In recipes where the chocolate is not melted and combined with other ingredients, you could try reducing the amount of chocolate used. For example, our chocolate caramel slice recipe specifies 150g of chocolate for the topping. Rather than use compound chocolate, we would use a smaller amount (say, 50g) of a nice dark chocolate and drizzle the melted chocolate over the caramel layer instead of completely covering it.
I think this website is great and i've tried many of these recipes and they always turn out just like the pictures. thanks keep up the great work
This site is fabulous. If I'm ever looking to try something new I always come to this site and I'm never disappointed.
I remember the first time I made the banana cake. My boyfriend asked me which shop I bought it from.

White mountain frosting
Combine the sugar, corn syrup and water in a small heavy saucepan. Insert a candy thermometer and partly cover the pan. Bring to a boil over medium heat. Remove the lid and boil without stirring until a drop on the tip of a spoon will spin a 6-to 8-inch thread, or the thermometer registers 240 to 242 degrees.
Just before the syrup reaches the proper temperature, beat the egg whites with an electric mixer until soft peaks form, 2 to 3 minutes. When the syrup reaches the correct temperature, set the mixer at high speed and pour the syrup into the whites in a slow thin stream. Beat until glossy and firm enough to hold their shape, 3 to 4 minutes. Beat in the vanilla.
