Chocolate Eclairs


It’s Mladen’s birthday and to celebrate I’ve made Chocolate Eclairs for the cake.

Mladen is obsessed with perfect and traditional Eclairs and in his honour we put this truly classic recipe into our latest eCookbook, Classic Collection: Family Favourites.

Tonight I’m going to mix fresh cut strawberries into the cream for a delicious fresh take on this yummy dessert.

Hope he loves it and I’ll share a picture tomorrow of what they looked like.

Enjoy this latest recipe from The Sugar Breakup team.

Happy baking!

Macaroon Slice or Chocolate Chip Cookies?


Biscuits vs slice

It’s the last week of school holidays and we thought you’d like a new recipe for the family.

It’s a competition between a slice and a biscuit and both recipes are from our new ecookbook Classic Collection: Family Favourites.

So what’s it going to be between these two classic flavours?

Will it be the Chocolate Chip Cookies which are crispy on the outside and soft in the middle? Eating them warm is the definition of delicious.

Or will it be the Macaroon Slice with the loved 3 layer combo of sponge, berry jam and classic macaroon coconut topping?

Let us know your vote below and we will publish the winning recipe this Sunday.
