Breakfast & Brunch, Desserts, Recipes / 19.05.2022

I absolutely love double cream yoghurt, and enjoy it almost daily for breakfast with fruit and granola. The vanilla flavoured Double Cream yoghurt from Lancewood is sooo thick and creamy, and contains real vanilla seeds -it's my absolute favourite! I planned to use it to make a dessert, but this baked yoghurt with spiced plums could be served as a decadent breakfast or brunch too. The baked yoghurt recipe is just 3 ingredients all whisked together - it couldn't be easier! The only bit of effort required is baking it in a water-bath, which ensures it bakes evenly and doesn't...

Biscuits & Cookies, Recipes / 22.02.2022

I’m a chocolate chip cookie girl, through and through. If faced with the choice between a slice of cake (literally any cake) and a chocolate chip cookie, I’ll take the cookie. Ditto for brownies. In fact I’d choose a chocolate chip cookie over almost any treat! My tried and trusted chocolate chip cookie recipe is the first cookie that I learnt to bake back when I was a teenager, and I still make it more often than any other recipe.That is until I tasted these cinnamon roll cookies. I feel its too early to say they have taken the number...

I love the idea of giving edible gifts to friends and family over the festive season. A box of Bakers Choice Assorted® makes a great stocking filler or hostess gift so I like to keep a few boxes on hand. If I have time though, I use my favourite Bakers Choice Assorted® biscuits to make yummy treats with like this this Nuttikrust® Apple Pie Fudge.With flavours of baked apples, cinnamon, white chocolate and Nuttikrust® biscuits, each indulgent bite is reminiscent of a slice of warm apple pie with a scoop of ice cream!Although fudge usually requires a sugar thermometer and...

Sponsored. 14 June is International Cupcake Day, that’s right – an entire day dedicated to cupcakes! When I hear the word “cupcake”, the image that comes to mind is that of a classic vanilla cupcake topped with a huge swirl of pink icing, decorated generously with sprinkles. The perfect treat for any birthday party!  However, in order to honour the humble cupcake I wanted to do something extra-special. What I really love about cupcakes is that you can remove a little of the centre and fill it up with any number of delicious fillings. Then, once the cupcake is iced, this filling...

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,...

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...

Sponsored.When you can’t decide what dessert to have, I say – have both! This tart is a delicious hybrid of Baklava and Custard Tart. By combining the two into one spectacular dessert, you get to enjoy ALL the textures in every single bite. Crisp, buttery pastry, thick, creamy custard and crunchy, syrupy nuts. Not to mention the flavour combination of honey, cinnamon and that glorious vanilla flavour that you can only get from Ultra Mel custard! If you can restrain yourself, this tart really improves after a day of standing. This allows for the custard to set up nicely, and...

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)...

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...
