Almond Tahini Choc Chip Cookies

I’ve tried to bake with coconut flour a few times but have not had much success until these delicious Almond Tahini Choc Chip Cookies crossed my path. I found the recipe on Minimalist Baker, a blog I regularly look at…

Gourmet S'mores

I love tasting menus. Purely for the fact that you know there will be more than one dessert. Two minimum. Three if you are lucky. These gourmet s’mores consist of home baked graham crackers (we know them as digestive biscuits in…

Nut Butter Granola with Cacao Nibs

I have lost count of how many batches of this Nut Butter Granola with Cacao Nibs I have made. Granola is essentially a breakfast food but this recipe is next level. The granola is crunchy, bitter, sweet, sour, rich and chocolatey…

Triple Chocolate in a Jar

The only thing better than chocolate has got to be 3 types of chocolate. At the same time. As in this recipe for Triple Chocolate in a Jar to be precise. Triple Chocolate in a Jar is three types of…

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…

Hot Cross Bun Ice Cream

I am usually quite bad at scheduling recipes for special occasions on the calendar and had no Easter recipe planned. So this Hot Cross Bun Ice Cream came about from a random flash of inspiration to make a dessert with…

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…

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…

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…

Chocolate Miso Brownies

My palate tends to veer to the flavours of the Mediterranean and Middle East so I am a bit late when it comes to cooking with miso. I have been wanting to use it for  a while but never really…

Two Ingredient Chocolate Cake

Before we get to the Two Ingredient Chocolate Cake I am thrilled to let you know that we will host our next Food Photography Workshop in the city centre of Cape Town. We love using our beautiful West Coast space in…

Quinoa Breakfast Bowl

I have mentioned before that quinoa is not one of my most favourite ingredients but when I saw the recipe on What Should I Eat For Breakfast Today for this Quinoa Breakfast Bowl I was so intrigued that I had to…

Chocolate Beetroot Cupakes

These Chocolate Beetroot Cupcakes have the most delicious Crème Fraiche Ganache slathered on top of them. The Crème Fraiche adds a tanginess to the ganache which I think tastes so much better than using double cream. The cupcakes are sweet…

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…

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…

Peppermint Ice Cream Cake

Summer time is ice cream cake time, Peppermint Crisp Ice Cream Cake time to be precise. Layers of smashed cookies, a layer of vanilla ice cream flavoured with peppermint extract, another layer of vanilla ice cream mixed with rich caramel…

Mocha and Raspberry Millefeuille

This Mocha Raspberry Millefeuille is a recipe worth keeping at hand as the holiday season inches closer. Visually so impressive and guaranteed to elicit a few wows from your family and guests but not complicated to make at all. A…

Vegan Chocolate Cake

This Vegan Chocolate Cake is a recipe from Nigella Lawson. I came across it on Twitter when she tweeted the link to the recipe and mentioned that it was from her new book. She had been sharing a number of…

Boozy Chocolate Coffee Pudding

I have two types of favourite email. The first is a payment notification and the second is a brief for a recipe that includes the words rich, sticky and boozy. And these Boozy Chocolate Coffee Puddings came from receiving such…

Chocolate Chestnut Brownie

What can be better than chocolate brownies? Chocolate Chestnut Brownies. We South Africans don’t seem to “do” chesnuts and the only time they do cross my path will be on a Xmas cooking show from the northern hemisphere. I’m not…

Gluten Free Chocolate Pudding l heinstirred.com

This recipe for Gluten Free Chocolate Puddings is based on a Sophie Grigson recipe I saw many years ago on one of her cooking shows.  I have always kept it at hand as it makes dinner party entertaining so much…

Boozy Chocolate Sticky Buns

It does have a nice ring to it doesn’t it? The softest buttery brioche, plump boozy raisins and lashings of brandied caramel with hits of slightly bitter dark chocolate.  It all makes these sticky buns fantastic for a Christmas treat…

Flourless Chocolate Fruitcake

Yes, it is one month before Christmas and though I am hardly traditional when it comes to this time of the year I can not go through December (and November and January for that matter) without fruit cake. It has…

Semifreddo is without a doubt my new favourite thing. It delivers an incredibly delicious ice cream and has to be the easiest way of making ice cream when you do not have an ice cream maker. Cape Town city centre…

If I politely ignore the first few attempts at writing and photographing recipes, May is anniversary month for Heinstirred. One year of blogging to be exact. I am thoroughly enjoying the journey, interaction with readers and fellow bloggers and so…

I had no intention of doing a Valentine’s Day post but as I played with styling the “mess” it just read “Valentine’s Day” to me. So here is my interpretation of that classic English dessert which came in to being…

I am a huge fan of the Great British Bake Off. It is by far my favourite cooking contest show and I am always in awe of what the contestants create while wishing I can bake as well as they…

Also affectionately known as the “Get Me Out of Betty Ford Fruitcake” I am brave enough to say this cake is better than my mother’s and grandmother’s (on both sides) fruitcakes. I absolutely love fruitcake, could it eat all year…

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…

Notwithstanding Nutella’s irresponsible adverts of being a healthy breakfast for children I have to admit the stuff is pretty good and could quite happily have a spoonful on my morning oats. I have been playing with the idea of a…

  Last weekend was the 2nd annual Cape Town Cookie Swap. I don’t really have favourite cookie recipes so take the opportunity to page through all my cookbooks and to choose a new recipe to make. Katie Caldesi wrote a…
