My chipotle in adobo sauce obsession has met chocolate. And cake. And even without the chipotle I do think this flourless chocolate cake is pretty fantastic, chocolaty rich but not overly sweet. The chillies just add a gentle zing to the cake. The non chilli eaters who tried the cake did not find it overpowering at all but it is very much an optional ingredient – the cake is perfect without it. What I did like about using the actual…

The smell of rooibos evokes memories of winter holidays at my maternal grandparents in Stellenbosch. My brother and I chasing every moving thing in the fishpond, seeing the snow on the Matroosberg from the garden, the smells of buttermilk rusks and stewed fruit.  And always rooibos tea in the afternoon. The tea adds a wonderful flavour to the creamy panna cotta and the grapefruit a beautiful jewel like colour while cutting the richness perfectly. Add to that the zesty orange…

If there ever was a “man” ice cream I think this is pretty close! I am quite a big fan of David Lebovitz and a friend told me about his book The Perfect Scoop which is packed with ice cream recipes.

These cakes are divine! I had wanted to make David Lebovitz’s Orange Syrup Cake since reading about it on his blog in April and when I saw clementines available on Sunday morning it was the perfect time to get some and start baking. I then remembered Sam Linsell’s Clementine Upside Down Cakes and decided (bravely) to combine the recipes and make my own Clementine Almond Cakes.
