To kickstart, the team at ClickClack has shared four of their favourite family recipes, all passed down from mum. From a traditional rocky road and a juicy apple cake to a delightful red cabbage side from Austria, these family recipes are too good not to try!


Rocky Road

Rocky Road by Kelly’s Mum


2 packets of super wine or vanilla wine biscuits

1 tin of condensed milk

250 g of butter

2-3 tbsp of cocoa powder

3-5 Moro bars

1 packet of marshmallows (small ones)


  1. Break up biscuits in a bowl. Put aside.
  2. In a large saucepan, put butter (cubed), cocoa powder and condensed milk. Melt over a low heat.
  3. Cut Moro bars up into small pieces. Put aside.
  4. When the ingredients are melted and combined, pour the mixture over the biscuits and add the Moro bars and marshmallows. Stir well until all mixed together.
  5. Put into a dish and refrigerate until firm. Cut into pieces and enjoy.


Austrian Red Cabbage

Austrian Red Cabbage with Apples by Mona’s Mum


500-800g red cabbage

50g butter

1 onion (cubed)

2 apples (cubed)

1 tbsp sugar

2 tbsp vinegar

1 bay leave

2 cloves

2 tsp flour

4 tbsp red wine

Approx. 300 g beef or vegetable stock


  1. Wash the cabbage before grating or thinly slicing it into fine stripes.
  2. Preheat the pan and melt the butter. Add cubed onions, sugar and cubed apple pieces. After five minutes add the cabbage and immediately pour vinegar in (this helps to keep the colour). Steam 10 minutes with closed lid.
  3. Add stock, salt and spices.
  4. Steam at least for 1 hour, but can be a lot longer too (the longer the better). Cabbage needs to be soft. If required, add more stock/water. When the cabbage is soft, taste and add salt, flour to bind it and red wine.

This is the ideal side dish for roasts, chicken or beef.


Sausage Rolls

Sausage Rolls by Maddie’s Mum


500g sausage mince

200g pork mince

1 carrot, finely grated

1 cup breadcrumbs

2 tbsp chopped parsley

1/2 tsp grated nutmeg

Salt & pepper

2 eggs 1 for mixture and 1 for glazing

Dash of milk

Puff pastry


  1. Pre-heat oven to 200 Celsius degrees.
  2. Mix all ingredients together with only one egg until well combined
  3. Put into a piping bag and squeeze out a sausage shape along the puff pastry. Brush edges with glazing egg mixed with milk and roll up to seal the join.
  4. Place onto greased baking tray and glaze the top and sprinkle with sesame or poppy seeds if desired.
  5. Bake in pre-heated oven from 20 minutes or until golden and cooked.

The recipe makes about 30-40 little sausage rolls.


Apple Cake

Apple Cake by Jackie’s Mum


125 g butter, softened

125 g sugar

3 eggs

10g baking powder

250 g flour

1 1/2kg apples, peeled

Butter to grease the tin


  1. Mix the softened butter with sugar and eggs in a bowl. In a separate bowl mix the sieved flour with the baking powder. Add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients bit by bit.
  2. Cut the apples into slices and roll them in a bit of flour.
  3. Put about half of the dough in the greased cake tin. Place the apples (about half) in a circular shape inside the dough. Pour the rest of the dough on top as well as the rest of the apples.
  4. Back the cake for about 55 minutes in the pre-heated oven (200 Celsius degrees, upper/lower heat) on the bottom of the oven.
