    I make my own icecream. Beat 600 ml cream and when thick add a tin condensed milk.
    I add whatever I want according to the Occassion. Yesterday was passionfruit as they are so cheap at the moment.
    Crushed old cold mints chocolate is lovely for an adult desert.
    For this one I would ad crunchie bars or snickers.
    Thanks for the great idea about the patty cases.ReplyCancel

Ever since my kids were toddlers they have always had a tub of yoghurt or some custard and tinned fruit for dessert most nights.  Before having my thermomix I used to buy custard already made, but now it’s really easy to make.  I have a few custard recipes I like to make (see below), but this has […]

  • Simple vanilla custard is just the best! Ooh I can’t wait to try your Thermomix version. I love pouring a bit of custard over fresh fruit… or a chocolate self saucing pudding (but that’s a bit naughtier!!).ReplyCancel

    • Katrina - The Organised Housewife

      LOL i do agree with you Lucy! So so good over fresh fruit.:)ReplyCancel

  • Nancy

    Hi Kat, how long will this custard last in the fridge?ReplyCancel

  • Kate - Kat's Assistant

    Hi Nancy, i would keep it for around 3 days. It doesn’t last long in our house.:)ReplyCancel

    Hi Katrina. I no longer receive your daily emails. Are you not doing those anymore? They stopped around a week ago.ReplyCancel

    • Katrina - The Organised Housewife

    Yum! Chocolate Ripple Cake was one of our most frequent birthday cake requests as kids.ReplyCancel


    A friend of mine made an ‘adult’ version of this; using Griffins Chocolate Chippy Bikkies and dunking them in a liqueur before spreading cream on them!ReplyCancel

    Back in the dinner party days this was an easy and cheats desert.

    Dip Gingernuts in sherry put together with cream, lay flat cover

    with more cream and hunks of Chocolate Flakes, add a bowl of

    Rasberries, sooo good.ReplyCancel

    • Victoria

      The ginger nut in sherry sound so good going to try that for sure!!ReplyCancel

      • Katrina - The Organised Housewife

        Very yummy indeed, Victoria.:)ReplyCancel

  • Linda

    My mum used to make a similar one with the cookies dipped in coffee before laying flat and covering with cream. Several layers and cover the edges before chilling. I like the way yours are stacked though, looks good when it’s cut!ReplyCancel

    • Katrina - The Organised Housewife

      Ooh sounds lovely dipped in coffee!.:)ReplyCancel

I have lost count now how many years I have made this Kahulua Hazelnut Ice-Cream cake, so many times. When I host Christmas Day lunch or dinner at my home THIS IS OUR CHRISTMAS DESSERT.  It’s really refreshing after a big Christmas feast.  As it has kahlua in it it is of course not suitable […]

  • This looks soon good.
    I love Kahulua, although I rarely have it in the house as I tend to end up drinking it as a digestif!!!??!! Oops.
    I am not hosting Christmas this year, but my parents arrive for an extended stay in January so I will definitely have it on the list for whilst they are here. Pinning this to my Pinterest food boards.
    Yum xReplyCancel

    Hi- I love your site and the tips, but don’t seem to be able to pin them. Is there any way, or is that not to be done? That’s fine if that’s the way you have it set up; just some things, like recipes, ideas, etc you don’t want to have to hand copy! Thank you so much!!ReplyCancel

    • Katrina - The Organised Housewife

      Hi Melody, Ooh thank you.:) Yes you can pin them, if you select the P where the icons are for social media you can then select which image you want to pin. I just tried it and it worked.:)ReplyCancel

    Can anyone clarify what is thickened cream? In the UK we have single, double and whipping cream?? Thanks xReplyCancel

    • Katrina - The Organised Housewife

      Catherine, yes it is the same as your whipping cream.:)ReplyCancel

  • could you use plain Greek yoghurt instead thickened creamReplyCancel

    • Kate - Kat's Assistant

      Lanette i have never tried but i can’t see any reason why not.:)ReplyCancel

  • Gemma

    Another great option is cream cheese made into a slightly sweetened dip. I recently did powdered sugar and lemon, but the options are numerous: honey or maple syrup, cinnamon or even a delicate amount of cardamon would be nice. Served with fruit and ginger biscuits it went down like a treat!ReplyCancel

    • Kate - Kat's Assistant

      Lanette i have never tried but i can’t see any reason why not.:)ReplyCancel

    • Kate - Kat's Assistant

      Oh i like the sound of using cream cheese, great idea Gemma!ReplyCancel

  • Natalie

    I’m not a fan of microwave cooking. If I did on the stove in a saucepan would I just put all ingredients in and stir until melted and combined?ReplyCancel

Last week I helped Jo from Quirky Cooking admin her facebook page.  I really enjoyed learning about so many fantastic new recipes.  I’ve nearly had my thermomix a year now and know that I still have so much to learn.  Jo shares many healthy recipes, naturally sweetened and a variety of gluten and dairy free, all […]

    I wonder if you could mention when a recipe is Thermomix? I often click through something that looks really yummy only to find it’s for Thermomix only – gutted!ReplyCancel

    • Katrina - The Organised Housewife

      That’s understandable Vanessa, I have been trying latey to ensure I add in a regular and thermomix recipe when I do share a thermomix recipe, its these old ones that don’t have both.ReplyCancel
