Grand Marnier strawberry clafoutis

8 Sep

 

grand-marnier-strawberry-clafouti

Many moons ago, when The Hungry Dad and I were on our honeymoon, we discovered a dessert that our hotel offered as part of their breakfast buffet. Clafoutis, a simple raspberry-and-egg-type-baked-custard dish, was part of the offering each day. And each day a certain newly-minted husband consumed his body weight in it. Continue reading

Boozy strawberry trifle for one - The Hungry Mum

Spring has sprung! At least, it has in the southern hemisphere and today, the first day of Spring, the skies were blue, the wattle was out and all was right in the world.

To celebrate this most beloved of seasons it seemed fitting to make a dessert as sweet as the weather. Continue reading

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

Easy home-baked strawberry muffins

The Hungry Mum family is meeting some friends in the morning for a beachside breakfast BBQ. We thought this mild autumn weather in Sydney would be a perfect time to catchup out of doors. Knowing how ravenous kids can be I baked some strawberry muffins for them to munch on while our breakfast poper is cooking. This recipe, from bestrecipes.com.au, was originally titled ‘Kim’s Moist Muffins.’ It is super easy and failsafe and versatile – everything you want in a muffin receipe [or any recipe, really]. If I knew how to link the site I would but I’m not that talented…

I had three punnets of strawberries in the fridge so I added some of those plus a handful of blueberries that were hanging around. I rounded that out with a pinch of allspice, which is my go to ingredient for all things baked. Kim herself suggested white choc & raspberry but almost anything can be used: mashed banana/sultanas/grated apple…

GATHER:

220g sifted self raising flour

1/2 cup caster sugar

1 egg, lightly beaten

3/4 cup of milk [or buttermik if you have it]

1/4 cup vegetable oil [not olive oil as it is too strong-tasting]

150g added flavours [eg strawberries]

LET’S GET TO IT:

Preheat oven to 170C and line a muffin tin with wrappers.

Place flour and sugar in a large bowl, stir with a wooden spoon.

In a jug place egg, oil and milk, whisk. Add to flour mix and stir until just mixed [do not over mix]

Add in flavours then pour into muffin pans.

Bake 15-20 mins / until golden.

These are fab warm but also can be frozen in a ziplock bag when completely cool.
