Sausage Breakfast Cake

This Sausage Breakfast Cake is a based on a Strata which I always thought was an Italian dish but turns out to be an American brunch casserole dish. It usually contains, bread, eggs and milk, so it is somewhere between a savoury bread pudding, a frittata and a quiche. Just a slightly more glamourous if I have to say so myself and a definite recipe to have on stand by if you need to feed a crowd. I originally made…

Persian Love Cake with Caramel Brandy Poached Apples

I recently spent the most wonderful day in the company of Pink Lady Apples and Top Fruit. We were invited to visit the packing facilities as well as one of the farms in Ceres where Pink Lady apples are grown. The day was a fascinating insight into the journey a Pink Lady Apple takes from the moment it is picked until you take it off the shelf at the grocer. A lot of special care is taken during the process…

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…

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…
