Yes, more French Toast

I promised a stuffed French toast post and here it is! This is an awesome weekend breakfast, and super easy. It’s just like normal French Toast…. except you put whatever delicious filing you like inside, squish it down a little and only then do you dip the bread. Generally French toast is made up an egg and milk mixture, I tend to use 4 eggs to 1 cup milk, and if making sweet french toast will add a little sugar and vanilla essence. It is also common to add a dash of salt. This should make a mix that will serve about 8 slices of bread, maybe a bit more depending on how well you soak the bread. Mix it all together and prepare your bread. I would suggest you choose a filling that adequately sticks the bread together, but hey it’s up to you. Then put the bread together and press firmly to ensure it stays together. Dip each side of your ‘sandwich’ into the mixture and place onto a pan with browned butter. Cook …

All of the Tim Tams

The humble tim tam, you wouldn’t think it could be improved on, but I’m here to show you how. Perfect for family gatherings, morning teas, or an afternoon in the kitchen with the kids. I made a selection of all of them as a gift for a friends birthday – check out the results! Tim Tam Cheesecake Balls (Makes around 25 Balls) These just like a Tim Tam cheesecake in a ball, plus they are super easy and you get the crunch of chocolate as you bite down into them. I have made a variety using milk tim tams, white, a mix of white and milk, or double choc, what you choose is up to you. Ingredients: 1x Regular Packet Preferred Flavour Tim Tams (or 2x small packets) 250g Cream Cheese Block 200-300g Chocolate in desired flavour to melt over Method: Crush Tim tams in a food processor or by hand to a fairly fine consistency. If you want crunch go for a thicker texture, though I prefer thinner. Separately blitz the cream cheese till …

Chewy Caramel Tim Tam Slice

What’s more Australian then Tim Tams on Grand Final Day? Nothing that’s what! Ingredients: 300g Milk Chocolate 150g Butter 2 x 200g Chewy Caramel Tim Tams Method: Melt the butter on low heat in a saucepan. When it is just at the point of melting remove from the heat and slowly add in the chocolate in small pieces and stir. If the mixture becomes to cool, put on the lowest temperature and remove as soon as melting starts again. Line a baking tray with baking paper and break the tim tams into chunks and spread over the tray. When all the chocolate has been melted pour the mixture over the tim tams and make sure they are totally covered and the chocolate goes to the edge of the tray. You can make it thicker according to your preference. I liked mine a bit thicker and rustic. Put into the fridge and let set for at least half an hour. When it is set, cut and serve, making sure to place any left overs back into …
