Sale of Burradoo via Bowral

Many thanks to the buyer of this print appreciated a lot. A special place for my husband who spent some time there when it was used as a boarding school [ Anglewood] during WW 2 a safe place to send the children to from Sydney in case of enemy attack. As it turned out he happened to be in Sydney the day the notorious Midget Torpedo did make it’s ‘appearance’.

P.S. for cricket lovers the place ‘Bowral’ they would be familiar with too.

Christmas Cake Aussie Style…


  • 2 cups flour
  • 1 stick butter
  • 1 cup of water
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1 cup of sugar
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 cup of brown sugar
  • Lemon juice
  • 4 large eggs
  • Nuts
  • 2 bottles of wine
  • 2 cups of dried fruit

Sample the wine to check quality. Take a large bowl, check the wine again.
To be sure it is of the highest quality, pour one level cup and drink.
Repeat. Turn on the electric mixer. Beat one cup of butter in a large fluffy bowl. Add one teaspoon of sugar. Beat again. At this point it’s best to make sure the wine is still OK. Try another cup… Just in case. Turn off the mixerer thingy. Break 2 eggs and add to the bowl and chuck in the cup of dried fruit.

Pick the frigging fruit up off floor. Mix on the turner.. If the fried druit gets stuck in the beaterers just pry it loose with a drewsc
