One of my earliest memories was helping my mum in the kitchen baking and since the age of 10, I have been baking independently. I think it helped that I saw my mum provide hospitality for so many people and she was always baking or cooking for others. Whether that was unexpected guests popping in or getting to know the newest church congregation members or a Sunday School picnic. She was in the kitchen using her skills to serve people.
This was something I always admired, so it has seemed fitting that I am following in her footsteps with using my gift of baking to serve people. I have helped cater weddings, quiz nights, youth group camps just to name a few events. But the most frequent event I bake for is my young adults Bible study every fortnight. There is something about seeing my fellow Christian brothers and sisters enjoying my baked goods that warms my heart.
So it’s safe to say that over the years I have learnt that Bible study suppers should follow a strict criteria:
So with the following criteria in mind here are my ten top crowd-pleasing Bible study supper recipes, which anyone can make:
When you want sugar cookies but without the mess and stress. These take a fraction of the time to make, but they have that classic sugar cookie taste we all know and love.
Rich, chocolate brownies topped with marshmallow and melted chocolate. It’s a classic combination and one you can’t go wrong with.
Yes I’m an Australian (I even have an Australian version on my blog! Nanaimo Bars (Australian version) (erin-marees-antics.blogspot.com) and I love this Canadian treat. It’s no-bake! So it’s perfect for summer, and it’s strangely addictive.
These use a no-yeast dough which means they can be whipped in a flash. If you’re able to, try to bake them so you can serve them still slightly warm out of the tray.
I feel like these cookies could almost be healthy? You can add chocolate or leave it out, but either way they taste good and don’t require a huge amount of effort.
The classic combination of chocolate and mint in cookie form complete a cocoa crackle.
This cake does require resting overnight, but it results in the most amazing cake which you can easily slice and transport.
These chewy buttery cookies really hit the spot and the coconut reminds me of summer.
This recipe does take a bit of extra effort, but honestly it’s one of the most popular treats I bake. And it is always requested whenever I am asked to bake something for an event.
I discovered these when I was on a migraine diet, and I loved how easy they were to make. They are the perfect combination of salty and sweet and super moreish.
