I was wondering if anyone would be able to help me out please.  Our oven is broken, and we won't be able to afford to replace it for a few months yet.  In the meantime I have a huge craving for cookies and slices but of course I can't make them in the oven, and it's too expensive to keep buying them.

We have a microwave oven, so I was wondering if it were possible to use that instead?  If anyone were able to help out with some "oven free" recipes I'd really appreciate it!  tongue.gif

Edited to add, I forgot to mention cakes, I didn't want people to think I was anti-cake, lol!

This is one of my favourites, got it from Super Food Ideas a few years back in their Christmas edition but you can do it year round. Hit with the kids to and cheap to make. I just use the Farmland brand of biscuits.


100g mini marshmallows
125g butter, melted
250g scotch finger biscuits, crushed
200g sweetened condensed milk
1 cup coconut


1. Mix marshmallows, butter, biscuits and condensed milk together.
2. Roll mixture into a log approximately 5cm thick.
3. Coat with coconut and roll up in greased paper.
4. Refrigerate for 2 hours.
5. Slice

Here is a recipe for a slice that does not need to be baked and is very nice as well as easy.

Fruit Salad fingers

250g scotch finger biscuits (i just use homebrand)
3 tablespoons custard powder
825g can tropical blend fruit salad in natural juice

1. Spread a layer of the biscuits over the base of an 18 * 28 cm lamington tin.

2. Blend the custard powder and fruit salad in a large saucepan.  Bring to the boil over medium heat, stirring continuously until mixture boils and thickens.  

3. Spread evenly over the biscuit base. Chill. Then it is ready to eat when it is set.  Enjoy.

Gee that sounds interesting and different. I cant even begin to think what that would taste like but it sounds pretty darn good, might have to give it a try.

I couldn't work out why my rice bubble slice wouldn't set and then realised I had used the low fat margarine instead of the regular one.
I know it says in the recipe to use butter but we don't eat it so would normal margarine be okay?
Even crumbly it still tastes yummy though!

Milo Balls original.gif

250g packet arnotts "Marie" Biscuits
2.5 tablespoons Milo

Half cup desiccated coconut

Crush biscuits (I use a snap lock bag and a rolling pin blush.gif if you dont have a food processor!)

Transfer crumbs to a lare bowl, stir in Milo, then GRADUALLY stir in enough condensed milk to give a firm moist consistency.

Roll heaped teaspoons of the mixture into balls then toss in coconut to coat evenly. Pop on foil lined tray cover and refridge for 1 hour.

Makes 35 balls approximately.

I have just made it with 'real' butter and mine hasn't stuck together and is all crumbly, even after 4 hours in the fridge. What did I do wrong??? ohmy.gif

I just tasted my slice and it wasnt as nice as I thought it was going to be.  It is very sweet and sticky.

Anymore? DD is just starting to want to 'help' me 'cook'! We only have a really small kitchen, so something that she doesn't have to be around the hot oven etc is great!

I made the rice bubbles slice the other day. I added copha, about 1/2 the amount of butter, it sets nicely but not too hard for little people's teeth.

Hope this helps.
