Remember my Mum’s amazing vegan carrot cake recipe? It caused quite the stir and is still the most popular recipe on this blog!  Way to go, Mum! ♥

Excited by her début vegan baking success, she’s back with another treat for us!

Yup, it’s the  magical biscuits that made your heart melt when you were growing up.  The creamy, delicate, melt-in-your-mouth circles of deliciousness that gave you tingles from your tongue to your toes.

They’re not a health food but they are a fast, easy treat guaranteed to win friends and giggles.

Ladies and gentlemen, please give a big round of applause for Mum’s Incredible Melting Moments:

Makes about 15 biscuits.


  • 250g vegan margarine
  • 1/3 cup icing sugar
  • 1 1/2 cups plain flour
  • 1/2 cup cornflour
  1. Preheat oven to 180C.
  2. Cream margarine and icing sugar until light and fluffy. Add sifted flours and mix well.
  3. Spoon out a small amount, roll into a ball and place ball on baking paper.  Flatten with a fork.  Repeat until all of the mixture is used.
  4. Bake for 10 minutes or until pale golden brown.
  5. Allow to cool before joining biscuits with lemon cream. Sprinkle with icing sugar.

Lemon Cream

  • 1/2 cup icing sugar
  • 3 tsp lemon juice

Just try to make them last all weekend! We couldn’t. 🙂 xx

    I love that your mom makes vegan treats for you! My mom is constantly forgetting I’m vegan! Anywho, these little treats look so scrumptious- I imagine they really do just melt in your mouth! 🙂

    These look amazing! I’m going to beng them in for a coworkers birthday, I think they’d be perfect. The carrot cake looks tempting, too!

    Just checking on one of the ingredients, it calls for corn flour, just making sure it is not corn starch

      Hi Maggie! From what I understand, they are one and the same. In Australia, it is called Corn Flour – a popular ingredient traditionally used to thicken sauces or soups. I hope that helps. 🙂

    Hi, made these last night as a trial run for a vegan bake stall we’re having this Saturday. Taste testing them on my co-workers and they taste great but they are very crumbly. Any tips to rectify this or is it just a characteristic of this type of biscuit? Thanks, I think you blog is awesome. Made the curry the other night as well.

      Oh thanks so much, Therese! It’s lovely to have you here. 🙂
      Maybe try increasing the margarine a little, but Melting Moments are traditionally quite crumbly. They’re definitely not a ‘neat’ cookie – prepare for crumbs!
