Birthday cakes, cupcakes and sweet and savoury treats and finger food for your next kids' birthday party.
*Warning to young consumers* These brownies contain butter beans which are good for you! Don't worry too much though they still have two other important ingredients... sugar and chocolate. Do you need gluten free treats? These are the answer and they are simple to make!
Every home recipe collection needs a good chocolate cupcake recipe and this is a great one that is easy to make and versatile for decorations.
This recipe has been in my family for a long time. It was always a welcome treat while we did our homework after school. Mum used to press them down with a fork but I have pressed half a peanut into each before baking.
If you know the cheese roll from your childhood-welcome back! If you're new to this South Island toasted treat-jump in. Great with soup or as a snack on their own. Yum!
This is the one Anzac recipe I always fall back on. If you cook them like a slice, make sure you cut them into squares while they're still hot.
For all the gorgeous chocolate cakes around, I still have a soft spot for these crunchy,chewy little treats. I include them partly because when looking for a recipe for them recently I found it surprisingly difficult to find one. Oh come on, don't tell me you don't like them! so get COOKING!!!
You can make these pikelets thicker by mixing a thick batter, while thinner pikelets will need a thinner batter. Add your choice of jam or whipped cream (or both) or eat them with butter.
Quick and easy to prepare, this cake makes a healthy snack for hungry children or a handy addition to lunchboxes. And it's a great way to use up bananas that have been sitting in the fruit bowl for too long.
These are tasty chocolate biscuits made with cornflakes - a kiwi classic. You'll find yourself addicted. The good thing is they are REALLY easy to make.
A great snack for children's lunch boxes. Coco Pops or mini M&Ms can also be added to the recipe for a change. Just exchange 1/4 to 1/2 cup of Rice Bubbles with the alternative.
