Malt Biscuits

Malt Biscuits
This is directly from the Australian Thermomix Forum and is originally credited to Gail Thomas in The Age newspaper.  So yummy.  These bikkies have a really lovely crisp and chewy texture.

  • 125g softened Butter
  • 90g  Sugar
  • 1 tab (40g) liquid Malt Extract
  • 1 tab (40g)  Condensed Milk
  • 1 cup (170g) SR Flour
  • Preheat oven 180degC
  • Place Sugar into TMX and hit turbo for a couple of seconds to make caster sugar
  • Add Butter and cream for 4 minutes on Speed 3, scraping down sides
  • Add Condensed Milk and Malt Extract and mix for 2 minutes on Speed 3
  • Add Flour and mix on Reverse until well combined, Speed 3 (about 10 seconds)
  • With a couple of teaspoons, place small 'blobs' on an oven tray (no need for greasing)
  • Bake for 15 minutes, watching carefully.  Cool on tray 5 minutes and transfer to wire rack.
  • Makes about 35+ biscuits.  About 20 might make it to the bikkie-barrel

So easy and so delicious.  And any excuse to use Condensed Milk is great, I say!! 

The original recipe says to use the bottom of a glass, dipped in extra sugar, to slightly flatten and coat the biscuit before cooking.  I don't think it needs the extra sugar coating,  but try it yourself.  You could also add some sultanas....  but I'd personally keep them the lovely thin crisp and chewy bikkies that they are without.


  1. Have you tried doubling the recipe? Highly recommend it! No scraping required with the bigger quantity ;)
    These are such a great bickie, we love them! We use nuttelex and they work perfectly :)

  2. Gosh, what a treasured find your blog is! Your tongue-in-cheek style and actually yummy recipes are a welcome inspiration after the numbing process of learning failsafe cooking. We are dairy free, so I need to 'tweek' a little more, but there's plenty there for me to fiddle with :) KEEP IT UP!! Elizabeth

  3. Gee, Elizabeth. Thank you so much for your huge compliment. I'm off to school drop off with a pep in my step. :) Good luck with your Failsafe journey. Don't forget to check the links above, especially the Facebook page; Failsafe Eating Support Group.

Sandra's No-Tomato Sauce

I have been using this all over the place...  and a bit like the Deli Chicken,  it has helped save Failsafe cooking all over again.  People on the facebook Failsafe pages are talking about it,  it has been translated into Thermomix-ese on the "Something From Nothing" page and here's mine.

Oh,  but first,  here's --->  Sandra's original.

Ingredients :

1 tin Red Kidney Beans, drained and rinsed150g Pear, about 2 large halves1 teaspoon Citric Acid1/4 cup (50g) Brown Sugar1 teaspoon Salt2 medium Carrots*, peeled and roughly chopped 1 stick Celery, roughly chopped4 Spring onions roughly chopped3-4 cloves of garlic1/2 cup WaterMethod:
Add all ingredients, except water, to TMX and pulverise on Speed 8 for about 5-8 secondsAdd waterWith MC in, cook for 25minutes,  Speed 3,  100ºC Purée by gradually increasing to Speed 9 for about 15 seconds*Moderate Salicylates

Verdict:  When I first tasted this I thought....    >.<  ewwww!...  but then I remembered I'd just ta…

Real Deli Chicken

The internet community is amazing, isn't it?  I have been a part of special interest forums (infertility, breastfeeding, homebirth, parenting, Thermomix, Failsafe diet) and I love that there's always someone out there with the information you need.  This recipe is exactly that.  On the 'Beyond Failsafe - Biomedical Treatment for Food Intolerances' facebook group, one person asked for some 'chicken-y school lunch ideas'.  Along came Meredith H. with her very simple answer.  She soaks chicken in brine,  poaches it...  and as easy as that you have a very commercial-tasting 'Deli Chicken' with no cruddy ingredients what-so-ever.  Her kids call it 'white bacon'...  we played around with 'chacon', 'bicken'...  and the winner is Real Deli Chicken.

Yorkshire Pudding

Mr frillipants' mum gave me this recipe, which really is the easiest-peasiest thing ever.

I am in the habit of making this with most roasts now, whether it's red or white meats, and it tastes so yummy with the meat and roasted veggies.  The recipe that I have says cooking time is 40-50 minutes,  which is seriously wrong. No idea where they got that? What I normally do is, when I have taken the cooked meat out of the oven to rest, and the veggies are still cooking, I put my 12-hole muffin tray in to start heating up.  I've already put a tiny dribble of a failsafe oil into each cup.  After a few minutes, I take the hot muffin tray out and, working very quickly, I pour the batter into each cup to about 1/3 full.  This will fill all 12 cups, giving the frillipantii 2 each... because we're greedy-gubbinses when it comes to Yorkshire Puddingses.
