Raw Chocolate Pudding with Sweet Dukkah

I have to admit this is a recipe I never thought I would make. I find vegan and raw “cooking” interesting but always said I draw the line at using avocado as dessert. But this recipe for Raw Chocolate Pudding with Sweet Dukkah was part of the recipe when I discovered the fantastic Chocolate Dukkah I posted a few weeks ago. The chocolate pots on Faring Well looked so delicious I decided to try it and see what it tastes like.It…

Chocolate Dukkah

My new favourite thing has to be Chocolate Dukkah. Made with cacao nibs, this is a sweet, chocolate version of the aromatic savoury spice mix, dukkah that is one of my favourite accompaniments to jazz up salads, roast veggies and makes a fab dipping sauce with some olive oil. Chocolate dukkah is a sublime mix of slightly bitter cacao nibs, pistachios, hazelnuts, macadamias and cinnamon, and it makes a delicious dessert topping. I wish it was my idea but originally saw the…

Molten Salted Caramel and Chocolate Puddings with Smoked Salt

If you are going to do puddings you might as well go all out and do it properly. And these Molten Salted Caramel and Chocolate Puddings with Smoked Salt is my valiant attempt at doing it properly. I certainly think I have succeeded. I can’t take any of the credit though. I was wide awake one morning and I while scrolling through Instagram at 4am, an image of Gizzy Irskine’s Molten Caramel and Chocolate Puddings appeared on Matt Inwood’s feed. I…

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…

Doughnut Ice Cream Sandwiches

When NetFlorist sends you doughnuts the logical thing to do is make Doughnut Ice Cream Sandwiches. Of course you can eat them as is but who would not love Doughnut Ice Cream Sandwiches? Ice cold, sweet, creamy, doughy pleasure all in one bite. I can’t believe it isn’t a “thing”.   Of course, the easiest way to all that pleasure is to use store bought ice cream but you can make this even more special with homemade ice cream. And…

Olive Oil Espresso Choc Chip Cookies

I just said that I find baking cookies more of a mission than what it is worth but it was impossible not to make these Olive Oil Espresso Choc Chip Cookies. I came across a photo for the recipe on Instagram and immediately made a note that I had to make Shellie Froidevaux’s recipe. And when Baleia asked me if I wanted to give a bottle of their Extra Virgin Olive Oil away, I knew this recipe was going to be perfect to announce…
