Recipes, Sweets & Treats / 24.02.2017

It may surprise you just how easy it is to make your own Real Fruit Jelly Sweets. Just pick your favourite juice, add gelatine and a little honey and lemon juice, and you are A for away. As an added bonus, you can control the sweetness - the amount of honey/sugar you add depends on how sweet you like it and also how sweet the juice is. You may even choose to leave it out altogether. Don't skip the lemon juice though - the gelatine tends to dull the fruity flavour a little and the lemon juice gives it the boost...

I consulted my beloved Hummingbird Bakery Cookbook for a recipe, and the resulting cake was a huge hit! It has a delicious melt-in-the-mouth texture and is just spicy enough to enhance the sweet carroty goodness. The original recipe makes use of ginger but I substituted this with mixed spice instead. Use either pecan nuts or walnuts to add a lovely...

Breakfast & Brunch, Ice Cream & Frozen Delights, Recipes / 03.02.2017

These pretty Breakfast Lollies are as pure and innocent as they look. Made with only yoghurt, fruit, honey and granola, these make for a refreshingly guilt-free treat. We recently had some friends over for brunch. I wanted to make something fun for their little girls to eat. Fun, but still healthy. Needless to say the kids loved them, and were surprised that they were allowed a second helping. No need to save them all for the kids though - they are also a handy on-the-go breakfast on a warm weekday, or a light dessert. Ingredients: (Makes 8 x 80ml lollies) 450ml double cream yoghurt 20ml honey 20ml milk 5ml vanilla extract About 250ml...
