Today is a glorious day - it is Apple Pie Day! I've teamed up with Dutoit Agri to host an Apple Pie Bake-along this evening, where I will use their Golden Delicious apples to make my favourite apple pie recipe live on Instagram. The Dutoit family have been farming fruit for over 120 years, and now harvest over 130 000 tons of apples every year! They currently produce 13 different apple varietals, each one with it's own unique characteristics, and have a few more exciting varietals in development (including an apple with red flesh!). I chose Golden Delicious apples for...

Breakfast & Brunch, Recipes / 30.04.2022

Nothing says "weekend" like a long, lazy brunch. Preferably something indulgent, enjoyed with family and friends at a leisurely pace. And what could be more fun than a customisable brunch where each person can make their own personal favourite waffle stack? I love making waffles for brunch, because a) who doesn't love waffles, and b) they can be made in advance! Yes that's right, you can make your waffles days (or even weeks) in advance and freeze them, then simply pop them in the toaster to heat (no need to defrost first). To create this beautiful DIY waffle platter,...

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 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...

Sponsored.What better way to take advantage of winter’s oranges, grapefruits and mandarins than to make a bright and beautiful cake that really shows them off? As impressive as it looks, this upside down citrus yoghurt cake is surprisingly easy to make. In fact, the striking slices of citrus fruit do all the hard work! After arranging the slices at the bottom of the cake tin, they are covered in a syrup, then the cake batter, then baked all together. The fruit slices cook in the syrup resulting in a sweet and sticky marmalade-like topping.The cake batter uses NutriDay Double Cream...

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...

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...

Sponsored Have you ever tasted a soufflé? These gorgeously puffy little cakes are slightly crisp on the outside and light and mousse-like on the inside. They can be sweet or savoury, and are made by folding whipped egg whites and a flavour component (e.g. fruit pulp, melted chocolate, cheese etc) into a custard-like base. If you thought you couldn’t recreate this classic French dessert at home, think again! I’ve recently discovered an incredible shortcut that will make soufflé-baking a cinch. By using Danone Ultra Mel Vanilla Custard as your base, you need only add a little fruit purée, fold in some meringue and voila! Not...

SponsoredTrifle is a classic Christmas dessert, and for good reason! What's not to love about layers of dipped biscuits, creamy custard, jelly, fruit and whipped cream. All the colours and textures work so beautifully together. I got to thinking that a frozen version of this traditional treat would make for a refreshing change, and would be perfect for our hot climate here in South Africa! This Trifle Ice Cream Cake is sure to wow your guests and delight the senses! It's made up of layers of finger biscuits, creamy Danone Ultramel Vanilla Custard ice cream, peach sorbet, strawberry jelly ice cream...

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...
