Here are a few of my most popular and requested recipes, please have fun recreating them and feel free to add your own special ingredients so they become your families favourites as well.
Plain lemonade scones
Feeds aprox. 12-15
Cooking time 15-20 mins / batch
4 cups of self raising flour
300ml carton of pouring cream or 200 ml UHT
300ml of plain lemonade or 350ml if using UHT
Place flour in a mixing bowl and make a well in the centre, pour in the cream and using the empty cream container as a guide fill to the crease in the carton with lemonade and pour in with the cream.
Mix ingredients together with a butter knife until just combined to make soft and fluffy dough.
Turn out onto a floured board and gently press together and pat down to form a 2-3 cm disk of dough then with a scone cutter or sharp knife cut the dough into the desired shapes and place on an oiled baking tray.
Place the tray into a hot oven on a high trivet with coals scraped to the edges and cook for 10 minutes, scrape coals to the middle and cook for further 3-5 minutes or until golden brown. Serve with jam and cream for morning or afternoon tea.
Cookies and Cream Chocolate Mousse
1 300ml carton of pouring cream

Good slurp of liquour, your choice.
1 packet of Chocolate Oreo cookies
Whip cream till light and fluffy using a hand beater or egg whisk
Add 3-4 large tablespoons of nutella and the liquour, whisk in till all ingredients are combined.
Break Oreos into pieces and place a few in the bottonm of a glass spoon on the mousse mix and repeat till glass is as full as you want it. Top with grated chocolate and set aside in the fridge for a couple of hours to set.
This mix should make four desserts and it is up to you what kind of liquour you use Butterscotch scnapps, Frangelico and Baileys are all nice
Very surprising dessert to serve if you are roughing it out bush.
