Honey Bubble

My nana taught me to bake. She cooked for 5 children and my pop in the tiniest kitchen you could imagine. There was just one work counter - a space not much bigger than your average computer desk. Today I have a huge kitchen, heaps of storage, heaps of counter space.... and I use a space not much bigger than..., well you get the idea. My younger sister and I would spend Saturday's with nana. We would bake all the cakes and cookies for the next week. This recipe was a favourite in our family.

My mum wrote the recipe out for me

Honey Bubble

125g butter
125g sugar
2 dessertspoons honey
4 cups rice bubbles (make sure you get the gluten-free kind)

Put the butter, sugar and honey into a saucepan.
Bring to the boil and boil for 4 minutes.
Stir in rice bubbles.
Put mixture into a well-greased sponge roll tin - smooth the top (press firmly)
Cut before it is quite cold - it sets quickly and becomes brittle.

Sweet as!
