Alice’s recipes

Why have a brownie when you can have one of these delicious raspberry and macadamia fudge blondies?! Try this tasty wee recipe and don’t forget to share it with your friends!


  • 250g butter
  • 300g white chocolate MELTS
  • 1 cup caster sugar
  • 4 eggs
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 3/4 cups flour
  • 70g macadamia nuts chopped
  • 120g white chocolate roughly chopped (can also use drops)
  • 1/2 cup freeze dried raspberries


  • Set oven to 160 ° C
  • Grease swiss roll pan and line with baking paper. Pan should be roughly 23cm x 33cm
  • Melt butter, and the 300g of white chocolate MELTS in a bowl over a saucepan of simmering water.
  • In another bowl beat together the sugar, eggs and vanilla. Stir in melted chocolate. Fold in flour, but don’t over mix. Stir in macadamia nuts, white chocolate chopped (or drops) and the raspberries.
  • Spread mixture into swiss roll pan and bake for 30-35 minutes. You want the top to be golden, but the centre of the blondie to be soft to the touch.
  • Once cooled, serve cut into squares and dust with icing sugar if desired.Dish them up!

Go see MUSOC’s show – Cabaret

Feel like doing something different this weekend? Looking for a date night idea or a fun night with friends? MUSOC’s latest production Cabaret is showing each night until Saturday – and student tickets are only $15!

Cabaret is a musical theatre show set in Germany in the 1930s. It exhibits the seedy underbelly of the era, intertwining the uprising of the Nazi party with playful sexiness and comedy.

MUSOC even has its own three page feature in the first 2015 edition of CANTA magazine (out today), which dishes on all of the backstage drama and excitement that goes on behind the scenes.

And if that isn’t enough, here’s a video interview with the director of Cabaret, Tegan Patrick, telling us more about the show and the family that is MUSOC.

Conveniently located on campus at the Jack Mann Auditorium, this show is a must see. I just bought my tickets – be sure to get yours at http://musoc.org.nz/
