Desserts, Recipes / 05.09.2019

In an ironic twist of fate, I married a man that doesn't have a sweet tooth. He's not a fan of desserts or chocolate or cake. I know, right?! I learned early on though that he does have one weakness when it comes to desserts: Apple Crumble. My husband loves Apple Crumble so much that he developed his own recipe which he knew only by "feel" (yet could duplicate perfectly every time he made it!). I can honestly and unbiasedly say his apple crumble recipe is perfect. Seriously. The apples are cooked just enough (not mushy but not too hard)...

Although we've never met in person, I feel like I've known Caroline Toich for years. She is the masterful baker behind Sweet Caroline's Cakery and I've been following her Instagram account closely ever since I saw one of her beautiful creations. Recently I spotted a batch of freshly made Banana Bread Rusks on Caroline's Instagram stories and immediately contacted her for the recipe. After one bite I knew the recipe was a winner. I asked her if I could share it with all of you, and she kindly agreed! These Banana Bread rusks start out as a sweet, dense banana...

It may be the middle of winter in South Africa, but that's never stopped me from enjoying a slice of ice cream cake. Especially one as magnificent as this one! Peppermint Crisp Tart (and all its variations) has proven to be a perennial favourite so I couldn't resist adding another recipe to the collection. This Peppermint Crisp Ice Cream Cake has a crunchy Tennis Biscuit crust, caramel ice cream layer, choc-mint ice cream layer, and a vanilla ice cream layer with Peppermint Crisp pieces. If you can bring yourself to slice through the beautiful layers and take a bite, you'll...

I realised recently that I have four macaron recipes on the blog, yet somehow I never got round to sharing my all-time favourite - Chocolate Macarons! For the most part, once you've mastered a basic macaron recipe, you can make just about any type of macaron you want by simply changing what flavour and colour you add, and using different fillings (buttercream, ganache etc). All of my macaron recipes are based on one standard recipe. In order to make these Chocolate macarons I had to tweak the recipe slightly. The reason for this is that the addition of cocoa powder...
