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…

Duck Fat Egg Toastie

It’s Father’s Day next weekend so this delicious Duck Fat Egg Toastie is a breakfast idea just in time for the day. Granted, for this spin on “egg in a hole” the use of duck fat is rather extravagant but everything from bread to brussel sprouts fried in duck fat is so good. The duck fat adds a rich almost meaty flavour to the fried bread. The recipe is not much of a recipe and could not be easier to…

Nut Butter Granola with Cacao Nibs

I have lost count of how many batches of this Nut Butter Granola with Cacao Nibs I have made. Granola is essentially a breakfast food but this recipe is next level. The granola is crunchy, bitter, sweet, sour, rich and chocolatey with an almost smoky flavour. I have had eaten it sprinkled over yoghurt as an afternoon snack and eaten it exactly the same way as a dessert. But then I have also had it eaten sprinkled over ice cream as…

Mumbai Cheese Toastie

If truth be told, this Mumbai Cheese Toastie should be called the “I Am Not Giving You Any Of My Toastie” Toastie. It is that good. The recipe for the cheese toastie comes from Diana Henry’s new book titled Simple – Effortless Food, Big Flavours. The book is without a doubt one of my favourite books. I love the photography (I think the cover is one of the most beautiful recipe book covers) and the recipes are hassle free, yet…

Dutch Baby

A Dutch Baby is not Dutch and neither is it a baby. Derived from the German Pfannkuchen, it is a large puffy pancake fit for a celebratory breakfast with minimal fuss or to make an ordinary midweek meal all the more special with a delicious dessert. You make a thin pancake batter, pour it into a blazing hot cast iron pan and place it in a hot oven. The batter puffs up around the edges and rises higher and higher…

Apple and Olive Oil Breakfast Muffins

There are hardly any muffin recipes on the site which is a shame as they are so quick and easy to make. I would not go as far to call them healthy as they can be loaded with sugar but these Apple and Olive Oil Muffins are quite light on the sugar and have some good for the heart extra virgin olive oil added in the mix. I have added vanilla, cinnamon and nutmeg to the batter, all spices that…
