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...

I'm always in search of great edible gift ideas, especially around this time of year. If you've ever made a homemade gift for a loved one you'll know how appreciated it is! Since I had no biscotti recipes on my blog I thought this was a good place to start. Biscotti look beautiful when simply packaged in cellophane with a ribbon, or in a pretty glass jar. And who doesn't love a crisp biscotti with their tea or coffee? Traditionally biscotti are made with almonds or other nuts but  I wanted something a little different. I love the rich, spicy flavours...

If you have evered ordered Churros with Chocolate Sauce from a restaurant, you have likely experienced something delicious. But just wait until you taste the home-made version! Hot, crispy and fresh out of the fryer is the best way to enjoy these babies - preferably dipped in a rich chocolate sauce. For those who've never tried one, a Churro is a Spanish and Mexican dessert made by deep-frying a choux-pastry dough, then rolling the hot pastry in cinnamon and sugar. Quite similar to a doughnut but crispier, and with a slightly softer texture inside. Churros are best when served immediately after frying...

Koeksisters are a well-known treat amongst South Africans, especially the sweet-toothed ones! For those who haven't had the pleasure of trying a Koeksister, they are delicious deep-fried twists of dough that are dunked in a thick syrup. They are similar to doughnuts, although most Koeksister recipes make use of baking powder and not yeast as a leavening agent. Traditionally Koeksisters are made with a lightly flavoured syrup, containing just a hint of lemon juice and cinnamon. And of course, loads of sugar. It's always risky making changes to a traditional recipe (especially one that's been around as long as this!), but...

Juicy, ripe plums are right up there with my favourite fruits. These Spiced Plum Crumble Bars make excellent use of them! A shortbread base and crisp, buttery crumble topping encase the sweet plums, which actually reduce and become jammy in texture during baking. So delish! Adding a touch of spice really brings out the autumn flavour of this bake. Ingredients: For the base: 150g butter, softened 75g castor sugar 5ml vanilla extract 225g flour pinch of salt For the plum layer: 7-8 medium plums 1 tsp mixed spice 1 tsp cinnamon 2 tbsp sugar 1 tbsp cornflour For the crumble topping: 240g butter, cold 180g castor sugar 340g flour pinch of salt Directions: Preheat the oven to 180°C. Grease and line a 20...
