A couple of weeks of baking

Chewy anzac biscuits

No bake vanilla slice

The kids and I made ANZAC bickies last weekend before ANZAC day.  The weather was atrocious, perfect for baking and after some googling I found a recipe and surprisingly had all the ingredients in the cupboard. 

The bickies turned out to be so easy and yummy however not chewy as I had to change a nappy just as the timer went off and should have take them out first!!  Still a big tick all round and definitely on my baking list from now on!!
The vanilla slice came about as all last week I had been dying for a vanilla slice however our bread shop did not have any!!  The recipe was easy enough but definitely needed longer in the fridge (my fault as I should have made it earlier in the morning).  Also the icing was slightly dodgy but I am not the worlds best icing maker!!  Still a definite make again!!

I am making this short and sweet thanks to blogger and its love of eating my posts lately!!  Last week was one of "those" weeks and this week is shaping up to be just as swear worthy!!

Linking up with One Mother Hen for Open Slather.


  1. I need to make my self a vanilla slice. can't believe I haven't made one yet. Hope youe week is better then last week.

  2. It's been awhile since I made vanilla slice for hubby. Might surprise him, you've reminded me how delicious it is. I am cringing because I don't need to be eating it! lol

  3. I like my Anzac bikkies chewy too!

  4. I've never made vanilla slice before. I think you've just inspired me to give it a crack x

  5. Love vanilla slice - have never made one - might need to consider doing this. However I can cook Anzac's - yum.
