Freekeh Pumpkin Coffee Cake with Walnut Streusel

Freekeh has been on my radar for a while now but impossible to get in South Africa. So when I was approached by The Really Interesting Food Company to create a recipe with Greenwheat Freekeh there was no way I was going to refuse. And that is how this Freekeh Pumpkin Coffee Cake with Walnut Streusel came into being. Fr Since I am up against 9 other foodies to create a recipe, I decided that I had to go sweet…

Peppermint Ice Cream Cake

Summer time is ice cream cake time, Peppermint Crisp Ice Cream Cake time to be precise. Layers of smashed cookies, a layer of vanilla ice cream flavoured with peppermint extract, another layer of vanilla ice cream mixed with rich caramel, topped with a few crushed slabs peppermint crisp chocolate makes for a sublime summer time treat. Peppermint Crisp Tart is one of those iconic South African desserts and this parfait version I did last year remains a popular recipe on…

Mocha and Raspberry Millefeuille

This Mocha Raspberry Millefeuille is a recipe worth keeping at hand as the holiday season inches closer. Visually so impressive and guaranteed to elicit a few wows from your family and guests but not complicated to make at all. A treat that tastes delicious, looks amazing and is not that hard work is always a winner in my book.   I came across the recipe on Pinterest as a pin from Gourmet Traveller Australia. It was one of those photos of…

Vegan Chocolate Cake

This Vegan Chocolate Cake is a recipe from Nigella Lawson. I came across it on Twitter when she tweeted the link to the recipe and mentioned that it was from her new book. She had been sharing a number of photos during the period they were filming her new TV show for the book so I was immediately intrigued and wanted to try it out as I have not done any vegan baking before except for these Coconut Blueberry Muffins…

Strawberry Polenta Cakes

This recipe for Strawberry Polenta Cakes is a delicious sweet twist on the usual polenta recipes out there. Drizzled with maple syrup and custard they make for a delicious dessert. Cut the custard and you have a tasty breakfast treat. The thought of sweetening polenta has never crossed my mind but it kind of made perfect sense when I saw the recipe on What Should I Eat for Breakfast Today (how amazing is that name for a blog). Marta’s blog is…

Spiced Pear Cake

  This Spiced Pear Cake has been on my to do list for the last two years and I just needed to bake it before we are full on in Spring and there are no more pears to cook and bake with. The first time I ate the cake was at a Spier Secret Dinner in 2013. The cake was part of Errieda du Toit’s elaborate and totally delicious dessert spread that evening. I got home and searched for the recipe by Yvette…
