We've had the most beautiful hot summer in Cape Town. Sadly its coming to an end and autumn is on its way! Luckily with our amazing climate here in South Africa, it's still warm enough to enjoy these super-easy and totally refreshing Pina Colada popsicles. With just 4 ingredients and a blender, you can whizz these up in no time. They're dairy-free, gluten-free AND vegan so they make a fab treat to have on hand in the freezer for any unexpected guests. For alcohol-free, kid-friendly lollies, simply omit the rum. You can also add ½ tsp of finely grated lime...

27 February is National Milk Tart Day in South Africa. I love the fact that there is an entire day dedicated to this delicious dessert - not that I ever need an excuse to eat milk tart but it does always get me thinking of other ways to enjoy this lekker, local delight. The idea for these soufflés came to me late at night and I was so excited I started working on the recipe straight away! Since a milk tart filling is basically a cinnamon infused custard, and soufflés are essentially a combination of a custard and a meringue,...

If you want to up your cake game, say no to boring buttercream! This rich chocolate buttercream is made with melted chocolate and cocoa for an extra chocolatey flavour. The gorgeously luscious texture is thanks to a special ingredient - golden syrup! It also gives a hint of caramel flavour which balances the dark chocolate perfectly. Although not essential, using cream instead of milk adds an exceptional creaminess and is highly recommended! This is the perfect companion to my classic chocolate cake, brownies, or cupcakes. Ingredients: (enough to fill and ice 1 x 20cm double layer cake) 200g dark chocolate, finely chopped 230g unsalted butter,...

Christmas has come and gone but I'm still in in the mood for making holiday treats like this gingerbread fudge! It's deliciously creamy and packed with all the warm and festive flavours of a gingerbread cookie - what's not to love? A while ago I found an adorable mini gingerbread man cookie stamp. It works beautifully to cut out cookie dough so I tried using it for cutting out fudge and it was a win! The resulting gingerbread men are not only super-cute but also the perfect size to gobble up in one bite! If you cant find a similar...

SponsoredTrifle is one of my husband’s favourite desserts – and definitely his favourite Christmas dessert. That’s why I have quite a few trifle variations on my blog and couldn’t resist adding another one this year! This time I thought I’d use some of my favourite gingerbread biscuits to make little gingerbread trifles. Since pears work so well with the spicy ginger flavour of the biscuits, I used those for my fruit layer and then some ginger ale jelly for a little freshness. Of course, a trifle wouldn’t be a trifle without Danone Ultra Mel Vanilla Custard! In order...

Sponsored. The sight of Bakers Choice Assorted® in the stores is a sign that Christmas is around the corner and it’s time start making some indulgent festive desserts! You may have noticed that the packaging has had an upgrade, but did you know that Bakers Romany Creams® Classic Choc has now been added to the mix? Even more yumminess to enjoy! I like to buy a few boxes of Bakers Choice Assorted® and use some of the biscuits in my Christmas recipes, and of course share the rest when entertaining family and friends (except the chocolate-coated ginger biscuits, I keep...

I was one of a select few guests that was invited to visit the Cherry Time farm in Worcester this past weekend. We had a fantastic day picking cherries, learning all about cherry agriculture, and enjoying a picnic lunch in the cherry orchards. I've always loved using cherries in desserts but after learning how tricky they are to grow, I have a new appreciation for these gorgeous little fruits!I returned home with an abundant harvest of plump and juicy cherries, just crying out to be used in a fancy, festive dessert. I really wanted to hero the cherries, so much...
