Biscuits & Cookies, Breakfast & Brunch / 22.06.2020

Sponsored. Granola is one of my favourite snacks any time of day! When I’ve got a sweet craving but am trying to be a little healthier granola really hits the spot. Transforming granola into granola bars means you can have a guilt-free snack on-the-go anytime! These delicious bars are packed with oats, almonds, honey and little apricot jewels for a burst of fruity freshness. Crunchy granola is just not the same without thick and creamy yoghurt. That’s why I couldn’t resist adding a tangy yoghurt topping. This layer adds a lovely creamy element that is not too sweet and is packed with...

As the mornings get colder and darker, I've got long, lazy brunches on my mind. Since we can't go to our fave restaurant for this luxury, I suggest spoiling yourself at home! These crispy, puffed pancakes topped with fresh banana and boozy rum butterscotch sauce make for a decadent brunch if ever there was one. Even better if you can convince someone to serve you brekkie in bed! Dutch baby pancakes are similar to Yorkshire puddings in that they contain no raising agent, yet puff up beautifully in the oven. Steam is what causes them to rise, so it's important to...

Sponsored. Figs are in season right now and I just love using them in desserts! Their beautiful purple skin and crimson flesh look so striking and luscious. Ripe figs have a sweet and nutty flavour that pairs particularly well with creamy, tangy Danone Nutriday Double Cream Plain Yoghurt. Walnuts and figs also go wonderfully together, so I combined all three to make a beautiful, seasonal dessert. Since the yoghurt is unsweetened, a touch of honey really brings this dessert to life. Feel free to adjust the amount of honey to taste! *For a lighter dessert or breakfast parfait, omit the cream from the...

I'm sure you've heard about the Dalgona Coffee craze that took TikTok by storm earlier this year. Well, I'm here to tell you about the next internet food craze - pancake cereal! It's not hard to see why this genius idea is going viral on social media - I mean, eating mini little golden crunchy pancakes with a spoon, covered in your favourite topping? Yes please! Whether you choose to pour milk over them and eat them like cereal, or add a knob of butter and a generous drizzle of syrup and eat them like pancakes is entirely up to you! Either...

Breakfast & Brunch, Recipes, Tarts & Pastries / 03.05.2019

You may be surprised to find a somewhat healthier post happening today! However, I can assure you this Granadilla and Granola Breakfast Tart is healthy enough to have for breakfast, but still decadent enough to feel like an absolute treat. I first tested out this recipe for Easter brunch and was not very impressed with the result. The yoghurt filling very quickly made the granola base soggy. I could barely slice it, it was such a mess. Luckily this problem was easy to solve by simply straining the yoghurt before-hand. This very simple process simply removes excess liquid and...

Not that one ever needs an excuse to eat Pancakes, but if you do today is Pancake Day! To be more correct it is Shrove Tuesday, traditionally a feasting day before the start of Lent. On this day stocks of eggs, dairy and fat were used up before the fasting of Lent began. A pancake can either be thick and fluffy (American style pancakes) or thin and flat (like French Crepes). Although I have love for both of them, I am celebrating Pancake Day with the latter variety. These utterly decadent S’mores Pancakes to be specific! In my opinion the perfect crepe should...

Breakfast & Brunch, Muffins & Buns, Recipes / 20.03.2018

I have many favourite sweet treats, but cinnamon buns are right up there. In the top 5 at least! Not much compares to sinking your teeth into a warm, soft, cinnamony bun, getting sticky icing all over your fingers (and face in my case - I don't hold back when it comes to cinnamon buns). Variety is the spice of life as they say, so I mixed things up a bit. I kept the delicious cinnamon and sugar filling, then added some buttery apple pieces and drenched the baked buns in a decadent salted caramel sauce. The result is these irresistable...

After developing my Apple Crumble Granola and Chocolate Granola, I realised my granola's were heading in a very dessert-like direction. Stopping at two flavours just didn't seem right, so I finished off the trio with this delicious Pecan Pie Granola. Using real maple syrup is the key to getting a pecan pie flavour - caramelised and syrupy. It costs a fair amount but trust me, you wont regret it. And you'll have plenty left over to pour over your blueberry pancakes.  The seeds and coconut flakes are optional, but make it that little bit healthier. PS. If you love Pecan Nut Pie, you'll love these...

Autumn is here! I love this time of year - the crimson and gold trees and crunchy carpets of leaves on the streets. It also means it's dark when the alarm clock goes off in the mornings, which can make it a bit of an effort to get out of bed. So why not reward yourself with this delicious Apple Crumble granola? The combination of apple and cinnamon is a classic one, and a perfect way to celebrate the warming, spicy flavours of autumn. Add milk or yoghurt for a delicious breakfast, or sprinkle over ice cream or custard for a quick...

I have a sister who loves to bake, just like I do. When I stayed with her recently, I tasted her latest creation - this totally addictive chocolate granola. She worked hard at perfecting the recipe, and then kindly shared it with me. I promised that I'd send her a shout-out for that. So thanks Sandra! Considering how delicious this chocolate granola tastes, I was quite surprised to find that is also quite healthy. Healthy is not really my thing, so I added my own special touch - in the form of some chocolate chips. There, that's better! Not only is this granola delicious and fairly healthy...
