Almond & Herb Crusted Chicken Schnitzel

1. Combine almond meal, parmesan, herbs and lemon, Season well.

2. If using 2 large chicken breast, cut each into two horizontally to form thin chicken breasts. If using 4 small breasts, slightly pound with a mallet so they have even thickness.

3. Dip each piece of chicken into the egg mixture and drain off any excess. Then press into the almond mixture, coating each side well.

4. Heat oil in a large frying pan and add chicken, cooking for 3-4 minutes each side until golden and cooked through. Drain on paper towel, then serve with lemon slices.

Hot Cross Bun Choc Truffles

Combine hot cross buns, sultanas, mixed peel and mixed spice in a food processor and blend until a fine crumb. 

Combine dark and milk chocolate and cream in a microwave-safe bowl and microwave for about 2 mins (stopping every 30 seconds and stirring) until the chocolate is completely melted. 

Add melted chocolate mixture to the food processor and blend until combined.  Transfer the mixture to a bowl, cover and refrigerate for 4-6 hours until firm enough to spoon. 

Spoon mixture into 2 tablespoon sized portions then roll into balls.  Roll in cocoa powder, dusting off excess powder.  Line a baking tray with baking paper, place balls onto the tray and refrigerate for 30 mins to harden.

Place white chocolate into a small, microwave-safe bowl and microwave for 1 min, stopping every 20 seconds to stir, or until completely melted.  Allow to cool slightly before transferring to a piping bag fitted with a small, round nozzle. 

Pipe a cross (to resemble a hot cross bun) onto the tops of each ball then return to fridge for a further 30 mins to set.

Dark Chocolate Rocky Road

  1. Grease and line base and sides of a 27cm x17cm slice pan with baking paper, extending the paper over sides.
  2. Place chocolate and coconut oil in a large heatproof bowl over saucepan one-third filled with simmering water. Stir until melted and remove from heat.
  3. Add raisins, marshmallows, macadamias, coconut and three-quarters of the seed mix (saving some for the top). Stir to combine and spread into prepared pan. Scatter with reserved seed mix.
  4. Set aside to cool for 1 hour or until set. Refrigerate if weather is hot. Cut into 24 pieces to serve.

Jewelled Rice

To prep: place the Sunmuscat sultanas and cranberries into a bowl and cover with water. Let sit and rehydrate for 10-15 minutes. Then drain.  

Place the saffron threads into a bowl with 2 tablespoons of hot water and allow to sit and steep.  

Melt 1 ½ tablespoons of the ghee into a large skillet over medium heat. Add in the onion and cook, stirring for 10 minutes, until the onion is well caramelised. Remove half of the onion and set aside – this will be used for garnishing. Add half of the soaked sunmuscats and cranberries, the rice, cinnamon, cardamom and cumin. Continue cooking and stirring, until the rice is well coated in the oil and spices, about 1 minute. Add in 3 cups of boiling water and the salt. Stir everything together, then bring to the boil. Cover and turn heat down to low and cook, without disturbing for 15 minutes. Turn off the heat and allow it to sit, untouched, for 15 minutes.   

Meanwhile, heat another medium frying pan over medium heat. Add in the remaining 1 ½ tablespoons of ghee, the almonds and cashews. Cook, stirring, for 4-5 minutes until the nuts are golden brown. Be careful not to burn! Set aside for serving.  

Uncover the rice, drizzle over the saffron water and toss the rice just a little so half of the rice turns golden. Transfer to a large serving plate, then garnish with the ghee-toasted nuts, the remaining sunmuscats and currants and caramelised onion. Sprinkle over the coriander and dill, to finish.  

Lemon Date Slice with Cream Cheese Frosting

  1. Line a 20 x 20cm slice tray. Place dates and 100g of the cream cheese in the bowl of a food processor and pulse until a paste has formed. Add oats, coconut and lemon rind. Pulse until smooth. Remove to a bowl and fold in blueberries. Press into prepared tray and refrigerate for at least 2 hours until firm.
  2. For frosting, whisk together the remaining cream cheese, icing sugar, juice and lemon rind. Spread over slice and sprinkle with pepitas, refrigerate until required and cut into squares.

Easter Blondies

Preheat the oven to 190 degrees Celsius and butter or line with parchment paper a 20cm x 20cm baking tin.

Melt the butter and white chocolate in a bowl over a pot of water and take off to cool once combined and fully melted.

In another bowl, mix the muscovado sugar, caster sugar and eggs together until thick and glossy. Approximately 2 minutes.

Once the butter and white chocolate mixture is cooled, mix in 1/3 to the sugar and eggs, and then fold in the rest.

Add in your flour, baking powder, vanilla, almonds and macadamias and mix until just combined.

Pour batter into your lines baking tin and for 35-45 minutes. The centre should still have a little wobble and a tooth pick should come out a little fudgy.

Straight from the oven, press your speckled eggs into the top of your blondie and let cool on a wire rack.
