Frosé with Rose Water and Pink Peppercorns

Frosé was the trending summer cocktail in New York last year. I am a bit late to the party, clearly, to only have discovered it recently. It is essentially an adult slushy drink made with rosé wine and I have seen it made with blitzed strawberries and a splash of vodka. I did not want to make it too boozy so my version plays with the colour pink and I made this Frosé with Rose Water and Pink Peppercorns. Most…

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…

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…

Vegan Coconut Caramel Sauce

I have not posted a dessert since December so it has to be rectified immediately. I came across the recipe for this Coconut Caramel Sauce recently on Viktoria’s Table and was immediately tempted to try it. In Viktoria’s recipe the sauce forms part of a pumpkin ice cream with praline pecans. How good does that sound (and look!)? Viktoria grew up in Bulgaria and lives in San Francisco. I love Viktoria’s blog so browse through it regularly. I love her…

Butterkuchen, Grilled Nectarine, Labneh and Dukkah

This is hardly a recipe but more of a quick summery dessert suggestion of Butterkuchen, Grilled Nectarine, Labneh and Dukkah. The dessert shines in its simplicity and use of summer’s bounty of stone fruit. I just love how it is a delicious combination of textures and flavours with no effort at all. The soft buttery cake, topped with tart grilled nectarines, sprinkled with a spicy dukkah, served with a dollop of salty labneh. It is not a very sweet dessert and…
