Cakes & Cupcakes, Recipes / 07.02.2017

It was my Mom's birthday last week, so I gave her the choice of what cake she'd like for the occasion. She requested a Carrot Cake, which I was pleased about as it tied in beautifully with International Carrot Cake day on 3 February! 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...

Biscuits & Cookies, Recipes / 22.12.2016

When I was growing up, it was always a tradition in my house to bake cookies in the weeks leading up to Christmas. My mom isn't much of a baker but my sister and I would spend many hours making dough and then cutting out and decorating cookies. Usually we would make plain old sugar cookies and decorate them with green, red and white icing. It was only in my twenties that I discovered this absolutely delicious Gingerbread Biscuit recipe, and it has been the preferred Christmas cookie ever since! There is just something so Christmassy about the aroma of cinnamon and ginger in the...
