Passion Fruit Olive Oil Slices

I’d like to think that every recipe on this blog is good but once in a while something comes along which knocks it out of the park. And these Passion Fruit Olive Oil Slices knocks it out of the park completely. They are so good and impossible to resist. Rich, velvety passion fruit curd on a buttery shortbread.  Moreish on a whole other level! I spent quite a bit of time thinking of what recipe to make with olive oil…

Vegan No Bake Granola Bars

These Vegan No Bake Granola Bars have become my afternoon pick me up snack of choice. I think they are just great as a snack for work or a healthier school lunchbox treat.It contains no refined sugars and is packed with seeds for crunch and texture.

The original recipe from The Mimimalist Baker called for the addition of either maple syrup or honey…

I first came across the recipe on Cook Republic‘s Instagram feed…

This is the second recipe I developed with the wonderful products that was so kindly given to me by the Clemengold team and I just love these Earl Grey Ice Cream Sandwiches. The first recipe I made were the Sweet and Sour Tequila Ribs and I am really chuffed with the feedback…

Saturday the 2nd saw Cookie Swap 4. An initiative started by Ishay Govender-Ypma, it was also the second year that concurrent swaps were held in Johannesburg and Durban. It is a fun afternoon of loads of cookies and catching up with fellow bloggers and bakers. The most important part of the event though is the fund raising. This year the beneficiaries were Learn to Earn’s Bake for Profit course. The course, aimed at unemployed women, is designed so that both baking and…
