Cakes & Cupcakes / 27.08.2018

Ever since I spotted one of these beautiful Ice Cream Drip Cakes on Pinterest, I've been looking for an excuse to make one. Finally, the perfect occasion - my twin niece and nephew had their 3rd birthday party and Auntie Astrid was given free rein in making them each a cake! (Not pictured here is the equally beautiful blue version.) It was a delight to see their little faces light up at the sight of the cake, and oh did we have fun trying to explain it wasn't actually ice cream in the cone! Please don't be intimidated about making this...

Biscuits & Cookies, Brownies & Bars, Recipes / 14.08.2018

Biscuits & Cookies, Recipes / 05.08.2018

I love slice ‘n bake cookies! None of the messy business of rolling out and cutting the dough. Simply slice into rounds and bake! These Chocolate Nougat Cookies have a rich, chocolate flavour and buttery texture like shortbread. The bits of nutty nougat add a crunchy pop of sweetness to every bite.

Ingredients: 200g butter, softened 100g castor sugar 5ml vanilla essence 225g flour 30g cocoa pinch of salt 75g almond nougat, chopped into very small pieces Directions: Cream together the butter and castor sugar for 4-5 minutes, until...

Hot chocolate, Milo, Horlicks. Those comforting hot drinks that get us through miserable winter days. For some time, Horlicks has not been available in SA, so I was absolutely delighted to discover that it's back on the shelves again. It didn't take me long to think up a recipe using Horlicks. I've been meaning to make fudge for some time, and  a creamy, malty Horlicks fudge sounded like a good idea to me! Fudge is unusual amongst confectionery in that you actually want sugar crystals to form. In toffees, brittles, marshmallows, nougat and caramels, you avoid this at all costs! The...
