Family Recipes

These recipes have been passed down through my family. They're classics from my dear grandmother!

Chocolate Fudge Cake

My grandma's old reliable recipe. Yet to fail me after the many times I've made it.


  • 4 oz. butter
  • 7 oz. sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 6 oz. plain flour
  • 2 oz. cocoa powder
  • 3 drops vanilla extract (optional)


  1. Preheat the oven to 140°C
  2. Melt the butter in a pan over a medium heat. Meanwhile, beat the eggs together.
  3. Combine all the ingredients together and mix well.
  4. Pour into a greased and lined tin and bake for 30-40 mintues depending on how gooey you want it to be.

Classic Gingerbread

Perhaps the pinacle of festive goodies.


  • 2 oz. butter
  • 2 oz. sugar
  • 2 oz. golden syrup
  • 8 oz. plain flour
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tsp. ginger
  • 1 tsp. bicarbonate soda


  1. Preheat the oven to 160°C.
  2. Melt the sugar, butter and syrup together on a medium heat.
  3. Meanwhile, beat the egg.
  4. Sieve the flour, bicarbonate soda and ginger into a mixing bowl.
  5. Add the syrup mixture and beaten egg to the mixing bowl and mix it all together. It should assimilate into a nice ball.
  6. Put the ball of dough into the fridge for half an hour or so to firm it up.
  7. Roll out the dough and cut it into whatever shapes your heart desires!
  8. Put in the oven for 8 minutes.
