Banana Rum Icecream
This is a simple and very tastey icecream recipe that allows you to use your over ripe bananas and with a hint of rum. The Rum also helps the icecream to not set too hard in your freezer.

Tiki's lolly cake
This is a recipe from our friend Tiki, who is an absolute baker extraordinaire. Sadly, she now lives back in NZ and so we don't get to eat her cake anymore, but we can just use her recipes and make it ourselves...
- melt the butter with the condensed milk
- add the crushed biscuits, lollies and cocoa
- mix together and squish into a ball shape
- roll out some baking paper and sprinkle it with coconut
- shape the lolly cake into a log then roll it up making sure it has got a nice coating of coconut
- leave it in the paper rolled tightly and put it in the fridge to set - ideally overnight but 3-4 hours works okay
- slice it into whatever size pieces you like
- 100-125g butter
1/2 can sweetened condensed milk (about 200g)
- 1 tablespoon cocoa
- 1 packet malt biscuits - a packet is about 200-250g - crush them in a food processor
- a handful of desiccated coconut
- 6 Eskimo lollies cut into 3 - alternatively you can use fruit puffs or marshmallows (ps Eskimo lollies are a marshmallow covered with chocolate and desiccated coconut - an Anitpodean thing....)
