Passion Fruit Olive Oil Slices

I’d like to think that every recipe on this blog is good but once in a while something comes along which knocks it out of the park. And these Passion Fruit Olive Oil Slices knocks it out of the park completely. They are so good and impossible to resist. Rich, velvety passion fruit curd on a buttery shortbread.  Moreish on a whole other level! I spent quite a bit of time thinking of what recipe to make with olive oil…

Hot Cross Bun Chocolate Pudding

These Hot Cross Bun Chocolate Puddings could not be easier and are just so delicious. And with that slight chill in the air I think they are a dessert fitting for Easter weekend coming up. Someone tweeted the other day that her dinner was sorted for the next two months now that hot cross buns have hot the shelves. I had to laugh as I am sure many of us have had hot cross buns for dinner. Toasted, slathered with…

Churros

As I perused the menu at Benguela Brasserie and Restaurant and saw that each dessert was served with a different ice cream, I knew I was going to get on just fine with the chef, Kelly-Anne Pietersen. I was there to photograph her food and you are aware that you are stepping into someone’s domain. What I was not prepared for was her incredible eye for colour and how she combines it with such beauty and ease on each plate…

Honey Roasted Nectarines with Vanilla Yoghurt

These Honey Roasted Nectarines with Vanilla Yoghurt is one of those desserts that makes the most of summer and its delicious bounty of stone fruit.  It shines in its simplicity yet delivers with full on goodness and flavour. On top of that the recipe is super easy and the most effort is to stone the fruit. Add to that a whole lot of variations and you have a winning dessert which does not break the bank (unless you want it…

Frozen Affogato

I would like to have thought I invented a new dessert. Google the words Frozen Affogato, and you see an ice cream recipe of Martha Stewart that plays with the flavours but does not resemble an actual affogato. But then I made the mistake of going to the 2nd search page and someone have already had the same idea as mine. An affogato is one of my favourite desserts. This from someone who hardly ever drinks coffee and if he…

Fruit Galette

With summer in full swing, indulging in the sumer fruit bounty is an absolute joy. Beautiful stone fruit, colourful berries and that all too short season of cherries abound at markets, supermarkets and street vendors. This Fruit Galette hopes to capture all that summer in a delicious mouthful. I’ve been trying to make the most of the season and in between all the eating have been freezing piles of fruit. My favourite has been to freeze cherries and enjoying them…
