Chocolate Crepe Pudding


Leftover crepes never tasted so good!

This recipe uses one quantity of my gluten free buckwheat crepe recipe however you can use regular crepes if you prefer. You need around 24 crepes.

As great as this is for a pudding, the boys took wedges in to school for recess the following day and swear its better cold!

Serves 8.


200g milk chocolate

340ml cream

200mls full cream milk

40g butter

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

1 quantity gluten free buckwheat crepe recipe, makes 20-24


Grease an oven proof dish that the flat crepes fit snugly into.

Gently warm the chocolate and butter in the microwave, once melted, add the cream, milk and vanilla.

Pour a thin layer of chocolate sauce into the prepared dish, top with a crepe add a little sauce and add another crepe.

Continue until all of the crepes are used and pour all of the remaining sauce over the crepes.

Allow to sit for an hour.

Preheat the oven to 180 degrees Centigrade.

Pop the pudding into the oven and bake for 25-35 mins.

Serve with a little vanilla ice cream!

Marshmallow Treats


There is not a thing healthy about these treats but kids love them!

I have one son at an athletics carnival today and another needing a plate of sweet treats for after his class assembly, the third, not to be left out, feels that he needs some of these for his lunch box to share!

As a child I would have these at birthday parties, possibly the same way as my Australian friends had fairy bread? They are party food and definitely not an everyday thing but they can be adapted to gluten, wheat and nut free, just check with the packaging labels.

These quantities make roughly 60.


400g milk chocolate

400g bag marshmallows

100g smarties or similar


Line up lots of mini muffin cases, slightly larger than your marshmallows.

Melt the chocolate, I use the microwave or use your favourite method.

Spoon enough chocolate into each case just to cover the bottom.

Push in a marshmallow.

Pop a drop of chocolate onto the top of the marshmallow and top with a smartie  or similar.

Allow to set before boxing.


For gluten free options I just drizzle a little chocolate over the top.
