Creamy, cool and just a little bit chocolatey. This mint chocolate-chip ice cream succeeds at being both refreshing and indulgent at once. The ultimate treat on a hot summer's day! It's perfect just as it is, scooped into a cone, or served with a rich chocolate sauce for an extra chocolate hit. The key to the perfect mint ice-cream is subtlety. This refers to both the flavour and the colour. You need only a drop or two of colouring to achieve a beautiful, mild mint-green hue. And go easy on the peppermint flavour too. Heavy-handedness will result in a mouth-numbing and bitter taste. An ice-cream...

Everybody loves little food. It's a thing. Make a miniature version of something and it's instantly a hit. Why? Maybe it's the cute factor. Or maybe because there is less guilt associated with eating it. Or is it because people love trying lots of different things? Why commit to 1 slice of cheesecake when you can nibble on a whole variety of goodies instead! I made these little cheesecakes for a picnic and they worked perfectly. Having bite-size version's means no need to slice and serve.  No mess, no fuss! They are also fab if you are serving up a variety of...

The sun is shining, the mercury is rising and that can only mean one thing - it's ice cream time! There are so many exciting flavours of ice cream I want to share with you, and admittedly I started with a tricky one because the main ingredient is a little hard to come by. Cookie Butter! If you haven't had the joy of tasting this delight then waste no more time - it's basically life changing. It's a delicious spreadable butter made with Speculaas biscuits (yummy caramelised, spicy Dutch biscuits) that you can have on toast, pancakes, or just by the spoonful. Completely addictive! For this recipe you...

I first tasted Banoffee Pie many years ago. My sister's friend was visiting from England and she offered to make us a British dessert one evening. Her Banoffee Pie was an absolute hit and her recipe has been used by my family many (hundred) times since then. The name "Banoffee" comes from the combination of the words "banana" and "toffee" although the filling is really more of a caramel than a toffee. Before Caramel Treat was invented we would boil a tin of condensed milk  for several hours to make the caramel, but happily now it's as simple as opening up a tin! Banoffee Pie...

This is no ordinary cake. For starters it's made with delicious Milo for a unique, malty chocolate flavour. Then there's the extra sweet and creamy condensed milk icing. Since we're being quite decadent anyway, let's make it a triple decker too. Go big or go home! I love cake. I love icing. I love condensed milk. But it's the crunchy Milo sprinkles on the outside that really do it for me. Most South African's grew up drinking Milo (it's Australian, not South African...

The perfect meringue is crisp on the outside, and slightly chewy and marshmallowy on the inside. When topped with clouds of cream and tart berries you have a splendid summer treat! This is a great dessert for a crowd as it easily feeds 10 people and the meringues can be made a few days in advance. As an added bonus its gluten-free. Meringues are incredible when you think about it. It's pretty amazing that two humble ingredients can be transformed into a beautiful and delicious confection! The magic of meringue comes down to the foaming properties of the proteins in the egg white. In...

One of the joys of making poached pears is the fragrant, spicy aroma that fills the house. Another is seeing the pale flesh of the pears gradually transform to pure crimson. And then there is the ultimate joy of eating them! Poached pears make an elegant, grown-up, yet stunningly simple dessert. They are deliciously comforting and warming, yet not as heavy as winter puddings often can be. This is an excellent option if you are looking for a gluten-free dessert. It's also nice to know that it makes for one of your five-a-day and if you skip the mascarpone cream it's fat-free too (personally I wouldn't - the cream adds a lovely richness to...

What could be more comforting than a bowl of warm Malva pudding drenched in custard on a cold night? Amarula Malva Pudding, that's what! Malva Pudding is a South African favourite. Its not hard to see why! It's basically a caramelised spongy pudding flavoured with apricot jam and soaked in a syrupy cream sauce. Comfort food at its best! The addition of Amarula Cream Liqueur takes this dessert up a notch and adds that extra warm and fuzzy feeling. Ingredients: For the Malva Pudding: 180g sugar 2 large eggs 2 tbsp apricot jam 2 tbsp butter 1 tsp white vinegar 150g flour 1 tsp baking soda A pinch of salt 100ml milk For the sauce: 100ml cream 100g...
