The Hungry Mum white chocolate & strawberry blondies

I recently baked and blogged rich, dark chocolate brownies. These were a decadent treat and one for adults only.

This time it is sweetness and light in the shape of fresh strawberry and white chocolate blondies.

I made these as a thank you for a lovely friend, Maria, who was the first person to ‘like’ my brand spanking new Hungry Mum Facebook page! Feel free to like my Facebook page – and I’ll like yours back 🙂  Continue reading

It was my niece’s birthday and she had flown down from her home near the Queensland border to catch up with her fav cousins (misses 7 and 9) and her nana. Naturally a cake was in order but the biggest decision of the moment was the nature of the cake. As the niece is a self-confessed a sweet tooth (her mum made her a cake that used 2 kilos of icing sugar!) a chocolate cake was in order but that didn’t really help – have you SEEN how many recipes for chocolate cake lurk on the web?

The idea of rocky road crept into my mind… Continue reading
