Hazelnut Olive Oil Cake

If you are looking for a rich and luxurious cake as a christmas cake but not the traditional fruit cake this Hazelnut Olive Oil Cake with Fresh Plums could be a delicious option for something different and summery. The recipe is from Milk and Honey, one of my favourite blogs. I made Jennifer’s recipe a while back and it is absolutely delicious. She made it with a divine coffee cream filling and decadent ganache topping and I urge you to…

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…

Molten Salted Caramel and Chocolate Puddings with Smoked Salt

If you are going to do puddings you might as well go all out and do it properly. And these Molten Salted Caramel and Chocolate Puddings with Smoked Salt is my valiant attempt at doing it properly. I certainly think I have succeeded. I can’t take any of the credit though. I was wide awake one morning and I while scrolling through Instagram at 4am, an image of Gizzy Irskine’s Molten Caramel and Chocolate Puddings appeared on Matt Inwood’s feed. I…

Easiest Five Step Chocolate and Nut Bars

I got the recipe for these Easiest Five Step Chocolate and Nut Bars from my friend Katelyn Williams who blogs at The Kate Tin, one of South Africa’s most popular blogs. Katelyn is the queen of baking and all things sweet and unapologetically decadent. I recently had the pleasure to collaborate with Katelyn, Afrikoa Chocolate and Eden Weiss Videography on a video telling a short story about chocolate. It is called The Story of a Cake and you can watch it…

Marshmallows with Salted Lime Sugar

I made these Marshmallows with Salted Lime Sugar for a dinner party two weeks ago and from the feedback I got they were the hit of the evening, so I am very pleased to share the recipe here. They formed part of a “forest forage” I created in front of the guests as the dessert finale. We cleared the dining table and asked the guests to stand while serving them a Passion Fruit Champagne (last week’s recipe) as a palate cleansing…

Passion Fruit Cordial

Perhaps not champagne but rather good South African Methode Cap Classique or as we call it “bubbly”. But I am sure you will agree with me that Passion Fruit Champagne sounds much more glamorous and festive as a title for a recipe than Passion Fruit Methode Cap Classique. Few fruit can make you think about hot summery days like a passion fruit (or granadilla as we call it in South Africa). Their season does not take us into summer, it is usually…
