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…

Boozy Chocolate Coffee Pudding

I have two types of favourite email. The first is a payment notification and the second is a brief for a recipe that includes the words rich, sticky and boozy. And these Boozy Chocolate Coffee Puddings came from receiving such a brief from the Sunday Times for the 14 June 2015 issue of their Food Weekly Supplement. It is winter so I wanted to do a baked pudding and I thought a boozy spin on a self saucing pudding would…

Chocolate Chestnut Brownie

What can be better than chocolate brownies? Chocolate Chestnut Brownies. We South Africans don’t seem to “do” chesnuts and the only time they do cross my path will be on a Xmas cooking show from the northern hemisphere. I’m not even sure if you are able to get them in South Africa to be honest. Naturally I was eager to try out a tin of chestnut puree when Sumarie at My Collections asked me to use it in a recipe. The…

Gluten Free Chocolate Pudding l heinstirred.com

This recipe for Gluten Free Chocolate Puddings is based on a Sophie Grigson recipe I saw many years ago on one of her cooking shows.  I have always kept it at hand as it makes dinner party entertaining so much easier. Instead of having to leave your guests to go whip up a hot chocolate dessert you can pre-make the batter and freeze the individual puddings until you are ready to bake and serve them as dessert. Which means you…

Boozy Chocolate Sticky Buns

It does have a nice ring to it doesn’t it? The softest buttery brioche, plump boozy raisins and lashings of brandied caramel with hits of slightly bitter dark chocolate.  It all makes these sticky buns fantastic for a Christmas treat and very hard to resist. There is something so satisfying about baking with yeast. You cannot hurry the process and it is such a tactile, almost ritualistic experience. Getting your hands into slightly warm dough, kneading it to a silky…

Flourless Chocolate Fruitcake

Yes, it is one month before Christmas and though I am hardly traditional when it comes to this time of the year I can not go through December (and November and January for that matter) without fruit cake. It has to be packed with fruit and absolutely no skimping on the booze please! And I think this year’s version certainly delivers on both. This flourless chocolate fruit cake is a combination of two Nigella recipes. I have been making her…
