When it comes to talent, Kate Ritchie’s skill-set truly knows no bounds.

Yep, there’s really nothing the showbiz icon can’t do – from acting, presenting and writing – the former Home And Away star is the ultimate triple threat.

Over the weekend, Kate Ritchie delighted fans when she revealed she’s set to release her very own cook book!

Moving away from children’s fiction, Kate plans to unveil all her cooking secrets in an upcoming tome.

Taking to Instagram to document her top-secret (and utterly mouth-watering) brownie recipe, the 42-year-old explained fans would have to sit tight until her cook book was released to find out how to recreate her delicious dessert.

“Seriously.. The best homemade brownie ever.. And not revealing the recipe until the book.. 🍫😉👩🏼‍🍳 #rainysunday #bestbrownieever #secretingredient,” Kate teased.

Is there anything she can’t do? The radio star has previously penned two children’s books and is now setting her sights on a cook book.

Elated fans were quick to ask Kate when her book was due to be released, to which the former Home And Away favourite said: “Stay tuned ❤️.”

“I’m available to pop over to try one to provide a testimonial 😍,” one fan joked.

“Umm book?? When I must get this,” another quipped.

A third exclaimed: “Can’t wait 📚 📚📚📚.”

The NOVA radio star’s love of baking sweet treats has been well documented over the years with Kate turning to The Australian Women’s Weekly iconic birthday cakes for her daughter Mae Webb, six.

“Of the six birthday cakes I have baked for my daughter three have come straight from the Australian Women’s Weekly Children’s Birthday Cake Book,” the mother-of-one told the Australian Women’s Weekly last year.

“And the other three have certainly been inspired by it,” she added.

“I’ve done the Number One covered in chocolate drops, the Coconut covered Bunny Rabbit for birthday number two and the Barbie princess cake for number three.”

For Kate, baking with her daughter is the ultimate act in bonding… with a little extra incentive at the end.

“It is just good fun with a lovely sense of achievement attached when we can stand back and marvel at our creations,” she said, before adding: “I can’t deny the fact that scoring the bowl and the spatula serves as excellent encouragement to get involved too!”

The actress has previously penned two children’s books – I Just Couldn’t Wait to Meet You and It’s Not Scribble To Me.

Kate says she loves to cook with her daughter Mae.
