Breakfast & Brunch, Recipes / 27.07.2016

Brunch is my new favourite meal. Apart from dessert of course, which I classify as a separate mealtime since I have a separate stomach for dessert that always has space no matter how full I am. Brunch brings to mind a gloriously, lazy Sunday morning eating slowly and indulgently (unlike breakfast which usually involves a bowl of cereal or piece of toast eaten in haste). These fluffy, fruity American-style pancakes are the epitome of a lazy weekend brunch.  They're a hit with adults and kids alike, and take very little effort (so you can maintain your relaxed weekend state of mind). If you're in...

Everyone loves a mug of rich, steaming hot chocolate on a chilly day. I know I do. In my case, hot chocolate consumption is not really dependant on the weather. I'm happy to drink it all year round. The more decadent, the better. Hot chocolate is so much more fun when it comes in one of these cute forms. Not only do these make a great homemade gift but they are also perfect for setting up a DIY hot chocolate station at a winter party/bridal shower/baby shower/book club (along with a flask of hot milk, marshmallows and some chocolate chip cookies on the side). Each hot chocolate truffle/spoon/test...

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...

This gorgeous fresh fruit tart will brighten up any table, and looks so fancy and professional that your friends will think you've been secretly training to be a French pastry chef in your spare time. Its deliciously fresh and light, and makes for a dazzling dessert or stunning tea-time treat. What better way to get one of your 5-a-day? I love a mix of bright colours so I went for a variety of different coloured fruits. You can, however, use any fruits you like. How about a mixed berry tart with raspberries, blackberries and blueberries? Or let one fruit shine on its own e.g....

Crème pâtissière is a thick, creamy custard also known as pastry cream. It is used in many French desserts such as pastries, tarts, éclairs and also as a base for soufflés. Considering its wide range of uses, it's essential that every self-respecting baker knows how to make it. Luckily it's really easy and requires no special ingredients or equipment to make - I'm pretty sure you could whip up a batch right now! Try it in this delicious Fresh Fruit Tart. Ingredients: 500ml full cream milk 1/2 vanilla pod or 5ml vanilla extract 4 large egg yolks 100g castor sugar 25g cornflour 25g cake flour Pinch of salt Directions: Split the vanilla pod (if using) and...

Chocolate salami is not salami at all - it is a delicious chocolate log filled with nuts, biscuits and a dash of liqueur. The name simply comes from the salami-like appearance. Originally from Italy (or Portugal, depending who you ask), it tastes best when served with a glass of port or liqueur after dinner. Chocolate Salami looks beautiful when presented on a wooden board, partially sliced and ready to nibble on. When it comes to the ingredients, why not get creative? As long as you stick to the basic recipe, you can use any biscuits, nuts and liqueur you like. You can also replace some of the...
