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 some traditional Easter flavours. I love hot cross buns but have been so disappointed with the buns on offer from the major retailers this year. But in the same breath I have not made any attempt to bake my own…

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, topped with a few crushed slabs peppermint crisp chocolate makes for a sublime summer time treat. Peppermint Crisp Tart is one of those iconic South African desserts and this parfait version I did last year remains a popular recipe on…

Vegan Roasted Banana Ice Cream

This Vegan Roasted Banana Ice Cream must be the first vegan recipe on the blog. There are many vegetarian recipes and as a happy meat eater I am always quite surprised how many vegetarian recipes I have done. Some of them are by far my favourite recipes, like the Aubergine Cheesecake, Sumac Roast Tomatoes and the totally delicious Thai Coconut Broccoli Soup. But this is certainly the first recipe where a main ingredient is a vegan alternative. I first came across…

It also gave me a reason to finally style a photo with the gold teaspoons I got in Dubai last month. Word of advice though, don’t check the exchange rate after you buy something. Or actually rather do that because…

Christmas Milkshake

  I am sure I got the idea for these Christmas Milkshakes on the treadmill. And it is not the first time that has happened. In all honesty it is such a dull experience being on one, combined with watching news which is hardly ever good, that my mind usually wanders to what I am going to do for the blog. I wanted to do a festive holiday drink but am a bit of a creature of habit and my…

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 is dotted with fruit sellers selling an array of fruit and vegetables during the week. I enjoy seeing the seasons change in their wares. Strawberries have started to appear and I saw the first batch of guavas just this week…
