Cheese and Onion Tray Bread

The recipe for this Cheese and Onion Tray Bread comes from this year’s Donna Hay Fast Issue. It looked so good and the fact that it did not take a massive effort to make immediately appealed to me so I had to try it. I also love the fact that the tray bread allows you to get creative with all kinds of fillings. And to make it even more tempting, I have thought of an even quicker way to get…

Cider Cooked Apple, Onion and Cheddar Galette

I was inspired to cook with cider again after the Pears Roasted in Cider recipe and I think this Cider Cooked Apple, Onion and Cheddar Galette is a worthy follow up recipe. It is on the rich side but so delicious and could be a stunning dish to kick off a dinner party. Or as a lunch served with a crisp salad to offset the richness as suggested by Delicious Magazine where I saw the recipe originally. The pastry of…

Orange Polenta Cake

I was recently invited to lunch at Tokara in Stellenbosch and had the opportunity to enjoy an olive oil tasting followed by a tasty lunch in the deli. The dessert was just incredible, a Orange Polenta Cake served with Orange Ice Cream, Orange Crème and Candied Oranges and as we were lucky enough to get the recipe afterwards, it was a given that I was going to make it and share on here. Tokara offers some of the most incredible…

Miso Butterscotch Swirl Ice Cream

My sweet and savoury love affair with miso continues with this Miso Butterscotch Swirl Ice Cream. It is a recipe from Claudia who blogs as The Brick Kitchen. Her recipe for Apple and Walnut Crumble Tarts with Miso Butterscotch Swirl Ice Cream sounded to too good to pass by and  I had to try it. I did not make the tarts but just the ice cream part of the recipe. The ice cream could not be easier as it is…

Peanut Butter Chocolate Tart

After last week’s super healthy recipe we’re all good for something a bit more indulgent like this Peanut Butter, Caramel and Chocolate Tart that crossed my path recently. It is a recipe from one of my favourite bloggers, Milk and Honey. I love Jennifer’s recipes and find myself making and baking them time and again. The Peanut Butter, Caramel and Chocolate Tart is a utterly delicious flavour combination of dark chocolate, caramel and peanut butter. The biscuit base is covered with…

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…
