It’s that time of year when delicious juicy Cherry Time™ cherries are in season! Just like last year, I was invited to visit the Cherry Time farm in Worcester. We had a short demo on how to correctly pick cherries (each stalk individually by hand!) followed by a stunning picnic lunch in the orchards. After that, there was time to pick as many cherries as we could fit in our baskets (with a few cheeky nibbles inbetween!).While admiring my harvest of juicy plump cherries, I got to thinking how gorgeous they look just as they are. So instead of using...

Peppermint Crisp tart. The iconic South African dessert made with 4 simple ingredients: Tennis Biscuits, Caramel Treat, Cream and peppermint Crisp chocolates. No matter how many variations I throw your way, you guys never seem to get tired of it - my Peppermint Crisp desserts are some of my most popular recipes on the blog!  This Peppermint Crisp Cheesecake is a slightly more grown-up take on the classic. A crunchy biscuit crust encases a mousse-like caramel cheesecake filling, topped with clouds of vanilla chantilly cream and crumbled Peppermint Crisp. The cream cheese adds a melt in the mouth texture with just enough tang...

Last week a neighbour gifted me a bag of beautiful ripe passion fruit. I set about making a big batch of passion fruit curd (recipe coming soon!) but had plenty fruit leftover. I've been meaning to reshoot a raspberry cheesecake recipe from many years ago and decided to remake it with a passionfruit topping instead! I was so pleased with the flavour and thought it looked really striking too. Despite technically being a "no-bake" cheesecake, I find that baking the crust for a few minutes really amps up the toasty, biscuity flavour of the cheesecake. This combined with a creamy, almost...

Do you like chocolate? Do you like cheesecake? How about speckled eggs? I thought so! Then these adorable mini Easter chocolate cheesecakes are just for you. Made up of an Oreo base, a creamy chocolate cheesecake layer and a chocolate curl "birds nest" filled with mini speckled eggs. I used the new choc-mint flavoured speckled eggs which I absolutely love (they add a fresh minty burst which cuts through the richness), but any mini easter eggs will work perfectly. You may have noticed there is chocolate in every layer of these little babies so definitely invite your chocoholic friend around...

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've been waiting somewhat impatiently for ruby grapefruits to come into season. Not only is their beautiful red flesh a delight to look at, but their zesty and slightly bitter flavour is unlike any other fruit. Grapefruits work wonderfully in desserts, where that refreshing citrus flavour offsets both the sweetness and richness that could otherwise be cloying. There's no question that gin and grapefruit work well together in cocktails, and the same is true for this cheesecake! Although adding it is technically optional, a touch of gin really brings this cheesecake to life and makes it something special. A neutral...

Let me just be clear about one thing. I am completely and utterly addicted to Biscoff spread. This glorious stuff (also known as cookie butter or speculoos spread) is a made from speculoos cookie crumbs and has a lightly-spiced, biscuity, toffee flavour. The texture is similar to Nutella - thick and spreadable, and gloriously liquid when melted. Originally invented in Belgium, speculoos spread is popular in Europe and has recently grown a cult following in the US as well, where it is marketed as Biscoff. Sadly for South Africans, this product is not easily available. So you can imagine my...

Sponsored.When Bakers® sent me a box of Bakers Choice Assorted® to make a festive dessert with, I had a really hard time choosing which of my favourite favourite biscuits to use! As such I decided to use all of the biscuits to make this delicious dessert sharing board.  I used 3 of the biscuit varieties to make mini desserts: mini Bakers Red Label® Lemon Cream trifles, Bakers Topper® cherry swirl ice cream sandwiches and mini Bakers Nuttikrust® caramel cheesecakes. Each recipe makes 12 mini desserts, which look beautiful when arranged on a large board or platter with some fresh berries, chocolate...

We've spoken about dessert mash-ups before (in my Lemon Meringue Fudge recipe). Only good things can happen when you merge the best elements of two desserts into one sensational combo. Take the spiced apples and crunchy crumble topping of an apple crumble. Now add in the rich creaminess of a vanilla cheesecake. The result is a spectacular showstopper of a dessert. Crunchy, creamy, fruity and cinnamony. As if eating two desserts in one go wasn't decadent enough, the addition of a salted caramel sauce takes this Apple Crumble Cheesecake to the next level of indulgence.This dessert requires a little effort, but your hard work will...

If it's a light and fresh dessert you're after, you've come to the right place. This delicious Lemon and Ginger Cheesecake makes a great ending to a heavy meal. The tartness of the lemon curd cuts through the richness of the creamy cheesecake leaving you wanting more with every bite! If that hasn't got your mouth watering then imagine the addition of a scrumptiously crunchy ginger biscuit crust. The result is the perfect combo of citrus and spice! This cheesecake is really simple to make but needs to be prepared a few hours in advance. Or save yourself some time and make it...
