You might like to have a try at making your own DIY greaseproof paper at home with simple ingredients you will already have in your pantry.

And if you’re going to be whipping up a batch of sourdough cookies (see recipe below) then watch our video on how to make sourdough starter.

Here are six of our favourite sweet baking recipes for you to try. 

Lilly Pilly Muffins

Lilly Pilly Muffins Recipe

Lilly pilly muffins are certainly a treat, as lilly pilly berries are sweet and creamy, and we believe they give berry muffins a run for their money. Plus, if you’re a savvy urban forager, they use up these fruits which often go wasted on footpaths around the neighbourhood.

Apple & Feijoa Scrumble

Apple & Feijoa Scrumble

What’s an apple and feijoa scrumble you ask? Why, it’s just like a good ol’ apple crumble, only scrummier!

This quick autumnal dessert is great for using up the last of your apple and feijoa harvest, and a pomegranate or two if you’re lucky enough to have them. It uses honey and rapadura for sweetness (both much better for you than conventional sugars) but it is still sweet, and a definitely fits our criteria for a “treat”!

We sure love us some sourdough pastacrumpetscrackers or hot cross buns to use up extra starter. But nothing beats these sourdough cookies for maximum ease and brownie points!

Zesty Zucchini Cake

This zucchini cake is many things: zesty, zingy, zippy… but most of all it uses up the zillions of zucchinis from your veggie patch. It has a moist crumb, uses pantry-staple ingredients and is very easy to throw together at a pinch.
