Raisin and Walnut Fudge Squares Recipe

This delightful recipe is definitely not one for the dieters but it is delicious. It is a great one to serve with coffee after a dinner party.
I actually got this recipe when over in the UK. I got talking to the owner of a wonderful little coffee shop where it was served and she actually was good enough to give me the recipe. Thank you so much Diana for allowing me to share it here.


125g butter (do not use margarine)
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup plain flour
2 eggs - well beaten
1/3 cup seedless raisins
2/3 cup chopped walnuts
50g unsweetened chocolate
1 teaspoon vanilla essence


Preheat oven to 170C
Beat butter until light and creamy. Gradually add the sugar making sure to beat well after each addition.
Melt chocolate in a small bowl over a saucepan of boiling simmering water. Or use double boiler saucepan. When melted, add to the creamed mix. Mix together and then add the well beaten eggs and mix until combined.
Sift flour and stir through the creamed mixture until just combined. Do not overbeat.
Lastly, add the vanilla, raisins and walnuts and stir through.
Pour into a slice baking pan that has been lightly greased and lined with baking paper.
Bake for approx 30 minutes or until cooked through.
Let cool before turning out. When cool cut into squares.

Peanut Butter Muffins

These little muffins are really delicious and so easy to make. The kids and the grownups will love them. I cannot remember who gave me this recipe but thank you for it and I hope you get to see it on my recipe site.


3 tablespoons butter or 1/4 cup
2/3 cup sugar
1/4 cup peanut butter
2 eggs
1 cup SR flour
good pinch salt
1/3 cup milk


Preheat oven to 170C
Cream butter and peanut butter together. Add the sugar and beat lightly. Add the eggs, one at a time and beat lightly till combined.
Sift the flour twice with the salt. Add flour and the milk, alternatively and mix well after each addition.
Place patty papers into a 12 place muffin tin and fill each one about 2/3 full.
Bake approx 30 minutes or until cooked.

You may like to add some chopped peanuts on top of the muffins before you bake or top with a small amount of vanilla cream icing when cool with a few chopped nuts sprinkled on top.
