Condensed Milk Ice Cream

This is amazing – ridiculously sweet but heavenly in small doses. Make an affogato or serve it with a tarte tartin like I will this weekend.
Just amaze balls and so easy!! Another Adam Liaw recipe.OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA
  • 1 can (395g) sweetened condensed milk
  • 600ml thickened cream
  • Devika’s Option: couple of tbsp’s  or more of frangelico
To make ice cream, pour condensed milk and cream, frangelico into a bowl of an electric mixer and whip to stiff peaks. Transfer to a container and freeze for at least 4 hours until firm.









Yesterday was the first time I baked these. I had to share it because it is a light cake full of flavour.  This recipes is from Annie Bell’s Baking Bible. Again this is such an easy recipe.


  • 150 g unsalted butter
  • 150 g golden syrup
  • 150 g  set honey
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 2 medium eggs
  • 200 g plain flour
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 75g white chocolate – chopped


Preheat oven to 170 deg C fan forced/160 deg C electric. Line a square 23 cm brownie tin, 4 cm deep. Gently heat butter, syrup, honey and vanilla in a small saucepan.  Once melted, take off heat and leave to cool for 15 mins. Once cooled beat in eggs one at a time.  Sift flour and baking powder, add to the ingredients, whisking until smooth.  Pour into the lined tin, scatter over the white chocolate and bake for 25-30 mins. 

Mars Bar Slice



  • 4 x 65 g Mars Bars, chopped

Line a slice tray with baking paper.
Combine Mars Bars and butter in a saucepan. Stir constantly over low heat, without boiling, until the mixture is smooth.
Stir in Rice Bubbles and press mixture evenly into lined tray.

Spread the chocolate evenly over the slice mixture and refrigerate until topping is set. Slice into squares.
