My housemate Simone is a big fan of homemade waffles. As a child she frequently had them for dinner! Her usual recipe is similar to pancake mix, but on this occasion she made Belgium waffles. (more…)
Vegemite is a right of passage for Australian children. We learn early on how to spread it – lots of butter and a small amount of vegemite. I use to work at Baker’s Delight and one of my favourite ways to enjoy vegemite was in their Cheesymite Scrolls. In this post I have a go at making my own. (more…)
In my opinion naan is the superior side to have with curry and rice is overrated. Recently I had a big curry cook up, including making naan for the first time. Much of the cook up ended up at work for lunches. I reheated the naan, which worked, but fresh would’ve been better. This post is about making fresh naan @ work. (more…)
Fruit bread makes a quick, easy and tasty breakfast, it is especially tasty when smothered with butter or coconut oil and honey. Mmm, delicious!
The problem I face is I can’t eat commercial baker’s yeast and that more or less rules out being able to eat bought fruit bread. Luckily, I love cooking and cooking new things I haven’t tried to make before. (more…)
I make a loaf of bread every week of so. Each time the recipe and/or method is slightly different depending on the type of bread I want to make, e.g. extra sour or a light and fluffy sandwich loaf. Today’s loaf, Fluffy Bread 01, is my first attempt to make fluffy bread for the Melting Stockpot. (more…)
I worked at Baker’s Delight when I was a uni student and became rather addicted to the cheese scrolls. My favourite was the sweet chilli scroll. Since then I have developed an intolerance to baker’s yeast and am unable to eat them. Sad face. (more…)
It appears that chain letters have evolved… into friendship cakes. My housemate Amrita was recently given ‘Herman, The German Friendship Cake’. It is a sourdough culture that you grow and divide.
You use one quarter to make the cake and give the rest to three friends to continue the chain. Weird? Yes! I thought it would make an interesting blog post though. (more…)

Poppy seed cakes are the centre of my childhood memories. As I grew up I came to realise poppy seed cakes, and they’re glorious variations, were a part of every German child’s favourite memories. This post is about Mohnstreuseul Kuchen, or poppy seed crumble cake. (more…)
I had a big Indian cook-up recently and as part of this decided to try my hand at making sourdough naan for the first time. Naan is delicious and I insist on having it whenever I go out for Indian. Who needs rice when you can have naan? Not me! (more…)
