Recipes, Sweets & Treats / 17.08.2016

A crunchy shortbread crust, a zesty lemon layer topped with a light, fluffy 'meringue'. Nope its not Lemon Meringue Pie. Its Fudge. A beautiful combination of all the delicious flavours you would expect from a Lemon Meringue Pie, concentrated into an adorably cute slice of fudge. This is what is known as a dessert mash-up. Two classic desserts merged into one! I'll be honest with you, this is not TRUE fudge. True fudge is made with butter, sugar and cream - all boiled together and then beaten to a thick mixture. This is kind of a cheat's version, using condensed milk and white chocolate. The...

Muffins & Buns, Recipes / 11.08.2016

Bananas. As much as I like them, I always seem to have a few over-ripe ones lying in the fruit bowl. Why? Because the whole bunch ripens at exactly the same time and no matter how much you like banana's, five in one day is too many.  Since I hate wasting food, my solution is to transform them into a delicious batch of banana muffins.

Pound cakes date back hundreds of years and were baked by our grandmothers and their grandmothers too. Traditionally a pound cake consists of a pound of butter, a pound of sugar, a pound of eggs and a pound of flour, hence the name. How easy is that! Even the most inexperienced baker can remember the recipe by heart, and bake a delicious pound cake at a moment's notice. These days most so-called pound cakes have been adapted so much they barely resemble a pound cake at all. Whilst I have no problem adapting a recipe to improve it, I quite like the...

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...
