Desserts / 18.10.2021

This is one of my favourite desserts when I need something comforting that requires minimum prep. Not only is it incredibly easy to make but is also very forgiving. Don't have maple syrup? Use honey. Don't have hazelnuts? Use almonds. Don't have vanilla pods? Use a teaspoon of cinnamon. Don't have rum? Use Frangelico or port. You can really get creative with the ingredients and customise it just to your liking. I've made this recipe many times with slightly different ingredients, and each time it is delicious! All that's needed is a something creamy on the side -...

I don't know about you, but I'm so ready to see my friends again! It's been 6 weeks of lockdown now - that's 6 weeks of not leaving the house at all. Although I've always been quite a home-body and enjoyed spending my days in the kitchen, it's not quite the same when you don't have anyone to share your creations with. My husband has some of it, but he actually doesn't have much of a sweet-tooth! So although it still feels like an absolute age until we can have friends round for dinner again, I've already planned the...

Brownies & Bars, Recipes / 07.04.2020

Sponsored According to a recent poll I ran on Instagram, many of us are barely aware that Easter is just a few days away! With all the goings-on in the world right now, it’s fair to say that most of us have been a bit distracted, and feeling a tad overwhelmed. So I decided to bring you all an extra-cheerful Easter treat – these Easter Custard Blondies made with Ultra Mel Vanilla Custard! It’s pretty hard to be sad when you’re looking at these gorgeous bright colours… and once you take a bite of one, I have no doubt it will bring...

From a foodie point of view, Easter is definitely my favourite holiday. Who wouldn't love a holiday that involves large amounts of chocolate and spicy hot cross buns! For someone who loves to bake like me, I never have a shortage of ideas around this time of year. Rocky road may not be the most sophisticated of these ideas, however, I can guarantee you it will bring a smile to even the grumpiest of faces! The variety of textures is what makes rocky road so delicious - a bit of crunch, a bit of marshmallowy softness, crisp sugary shells and lots...

Desserts, Recipes, Tarts & Pastries / 06.03.2020

These easy mini lemon tarts came about on one of those really manic days. I was short on time but had to prepare some snacks for book club. The savouries were sorted, but knowing my friends would be gobsmacked if I didn't serve any sweet treats I frantically searched through my fridge and freezer for some short-cut ingredients. Happily, I found some leftover pastry in the freezer (I always make a double batch for this very reason!), and a jar of home-made lemon curd in the fridge. Problem solved! In less than 30 minutes, I had cut out and...

My first taste of crème caramel was in the rather unsophisticated form of Flamby. As children we would get the triple-packs as an after-dinner treat. We loved to turn the little fluted plastic pots onto a plate and snap the plastic clip to release the pudding and caramel sauce in one satisfying motion! Crème Caramel was hugely popular in the 80's but has sadly disappeared from restaurant menu's in recent times (Flamby is also no longer around). As a throwback to those happy days, I decided to try my hand at making my own version and could not quite believe just...

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...

If you don't like Nutella, I'm not sure we can be friends. There, I said it. That is how strongly I feel about the heavenly goo. You may think that anything made with Nutella is sure to be a winner. Well, kind of. It is true that the sweet, chocolatey spread can disguise a multitide of sins. However, the recipe still needs to work. That's why I was skeptical when I found a 3-ingredient Nutella cookie recipe on Blue Door Bakery- it just seemed to easy!  I can assure you though, it really works perfectly. I had to add my own...

I am simply addicted to these peanut butter biscuits. They are absolutely packed with peanut butter flavour yet, unlike many other peanut butter biscuits, they aren't over-the-top sweet. Crunchy, nutty and beautifully golden. The perfect accompaniment to your afternoon cuppa! I may have mentioned that my husband hates peanut butter. And I love it. I did some research and can confirm that he is in the minority. 75% of American households stock peanut butter and South Africans consumed over 25000 tons of the stuff last year. So as far as I'm concerned, I have good reason to continue making peanut butter...
