Vegan Choc Mint Tart (Raw)

I am a sucker for any combination that involves cream, eggs and butter as I am sure many regular readers of this blog can attest to. But I am similarly fascinated with vegan baking and baking with alternative ingredients so I jumped at the chance to make this Vegan Choc Mint Tart when a friend showed me the recipe on enrichnutrition’s instagram feed. The tart is a crust of almonds and dates, topped with a cashew and coconut cream chocolate…

Almond Tahini Choc Chip Cookies

I’ve tried to bake with coconut flour a few times but have not had much success until these delicious Almond Tahini Choc Chip Cookies crossed my path. I found the recipe on Minimalist Baker, a blog I regularly look at for vegetarian and plant based recipe inspiration. The cookies are gluten free and not too sweet. Coconut flour is tricky to work with as it takes up much more liquid than a standard wheat flour and I find it can…

Gourmet S'mores

I love tasting menus. Purely for the fact that you know there will be more than one dessert. Two minimum. Three if you are lucky. These gourmet s’mores consist of home baked graham crackers (we know them as digestive biscuits in SA), topped with a dollop of chocolate ganache and whipped marshmallow topping. The idea comes from a superb lunch at Amass in Copenhagen a few months back. Amass is situated at the end of the Copenhagen harbour (you reach it by…

Muesli Buttermilk Rusks

There was no way I was not going to bake Tannie Maria’s Muesli Buttermilk Rusks. After all, they are one of the main characters in the wonderful murder mystery by Sally Andrew called Recipes for Love and Murder. The story is set in the Klein Karoo, an area about 2 hours outside of Cape Town and tells the story of  Tannie Maria, “a fifty-something, short and soft (perhaps a bit too soft in the wrong places)” who gets involved in a…

Easiest Five Step Chocolate and Nut Bars

I got the recipe for these Easiest Five Step Chocolate and Nut Bars from my friend Katelyn Williams who blogs at The Kate Tin, one of South Africa’s most popular blogs. Katelyn is the queen of baking and all things sweet and unapologetically decadent. I recently had the pleasure to collaborate with Katelyn, Afrikoa Chocolate and Eden Weiss Videography on a video telling a short story about chocolate. It is called The Story of a Cake and you can watch it…

Marshmallows with Salted Lime Sugar

I made these Marshmallows with Salted Lime Sugar for a dinner party two weeks ago and from the feedback I got they were the hit of the evening, so I am very pleased to share the recipe here. They formed part of a “forest forage” I created in front of the guests as the dessert finale. We cleared the dining table and asked the guests to stand while serving them a Passion Fruit Champagne (last week’s recipe) as a palate cleansing…
