Desserts, Ice Cream & Frozen Delights / 11.01.2019

Happy New Year fellow bakers, dessert-lovers and friends! Are you among the many who are starting the year on a healthy note, cutting down on sugar, dairy or fat? Then this Brown Sugar Peach Ice Cream recipe is just for you! Not because it’s sugar-, dairy- or fat-free, but because you’re going to need an indulgent dessert to dive into to reward yourself for being so healthy! Use lovely fresh peaches in season for maximum flavour, but tinned peaches will do fine out of season.   Ingredients: For the Ice Cream base: 375ml milk 375ml cream pinch of salt 4 large egg yolks 185ml brown sugar For the Peach Swirl 350g...

Panna Cotta is one of my favourite desserts - I just love the smooth, silky texture and subtle flavour. A Panna Cotta is quite neutral on it's own and it carries other flavours very well, so I decided to make a honey-flavoured version. Although Autumn is here, it's still possible to buy delicious juicy peaches. They complement the honey flavour of the Panna Cotta beautifully, and add a gorgeous pop of colour too. You'll notice that the honey is added after the other ingredients have been heated - this is to preserve the flavour of the honey. Panna Cotta lovers, try this! Ingredients: 25ml...

If you're looking for a light and refreshing summer dessert, this Sparkling Berry Jelly is just for you! It combines sweet, fresh berries with fruit juice and sparkling wine. The fizzy bubbles actually set in the gelatine and dissolve on your tongue when you take a bite! I think this jelly would be a perfect New Years Eve dessert. Anything made with champers is automatically classified as "festive' in my book! Despite it's impressive appearance, it is an incredibly easy recipe to make. Plus it can be made days in advance and feeds a crowd. Other fruit and juice flavours work really well...

Around the time of my birthday, apricots start making an appearance on the shelves. This causes much excitement in my life. Apricot season in South Africa is very short - only about 4 weeks. In these 4 weeks you will find me making apricot jam, crumbles, tarts, pastries and even occasionally just eating one as is! They add such a juicy, tart flavour and bright colour to desserts. Especially this Apricot, Almond and White Chocolate Tart. This tart is quite similar to my Plum and Almond Tart but I added in some chopped white chocolate. The creamy sweetness from the chocolate...

Brownies & Bars, Desserts, Recipes / 16.06.2017

I discovered a wonderful product called Blueberry Powder. It is made by simply freeze-drying blueberries! The resulting product is a sticky concentrated powder which adds a powerful flavour and colour boost to foods. A great way to up the nutrient content of your smoothie bowl breakfast. Or in this case, your triple layered dessert. These striking Blueberry and Lime bars are made up of a crisp lime shortbread, topped with blueberries in a creamy lime cheesecake layer, and finished with a layer of bright blueberry mousse. A real show-stopper to wow your guests! Ingredients: Lime Shortbread Base: 150g butter, softened 100g castor sugar finely grated lime zest of...

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...

I'd love to tell you that my favourite thing about these ice lollies is that they are made with only fruit and are therefore super-healthy. But I'd be lying. What I love most about them is that are just so pretty! I mean look at those colours! Isn't it pleasing to know that all those lovely, bright colours come from fruit alone? These lollies are a great way to get your kids to eat something healthy on a hot summer's day. In fact once they see these beautiful treats, you may have to fight them for one! All you need to make these is fruit, water, a blender, and ice lolly...

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...

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....
