Strawberry Custard Tarts – my guilty pleasures!

Posted on October 28, 2017 by in baked goods

Strawberry Custard Tarts

My Strawberry Custard Tarts are basically Pasteis de Nata with a Summer twist. The Strawberry Custard Tarts  are made with only 5 ingredients and that is the amazing thing. I used Ultramel Custard, which is my guilty pleasure, by the way. So when I saw that I can now buy my favorite custard in a […]

Camembert Honey Walnut Phyllo Cigars

Camembert Honey Walnut Phyllo Cigars – my suggestion is to make as many as you can, because they will fly off the snack platter. These Camembert Honey Walnut Phyllo Cigars can be made, frozen and fried just before serving for that extra delicious crunch. I love the combination of the creamy melted cheese, the crunchy […]

One cup Yogurt Muffins

One cup Yogurt Muffins is perfect for a baking session with your kids. These One cup Yogurt Muffins I saw at the Spar Junior Chef event that was held last Saturday here in Cape Town. It seems as if I was under a rock somewhere, because the internet is flooded with this clever recipe. Most of […]

Cheesy Garlic Turmeric Rosemary Rolls

Cheesy Garlic Turmeric Rosemary Rolls – your answer to easy entertaining. The Cheesy Garlic Turmeric Rosemary rolls were made with my machine, so very, very little effort from my side. The most effort was to not eat too much of the darn rolls. I remember seeing dinner rolls on Drizzle & Dip and also Heinstirred. […]

Quick Nutella Pull Apart Loaf

My Quick Nutella Pull Apart Loaf was definitely quick……… quick to disappear off the plate. The kids LOVED this Quick Nutella Pull Apart Loaf, the way the dough is all stretchy and then the oozing Nutella in the folds. Any child’s dream breakfast, I suppose. My son insisted on having his with a creamy cappuccino […]

Saucy Orange Ginger Pudding

Saucy Orange Ginger Pudding – Can you even imagine how delicious it is? With or without custard, it is my new favorite winter dessert. My Saucy Orange Ginger Pudding happened by chance. I had a basket full of blood oranges that I had to use before I leave for Port Elizabeth tomorrow and I craved […]

Dutch Apple Cake

My Dutch Apple Cake is not not going to win the any beauty pageant or Koekedoor, but to me she is just beautiful. Had a Dutch Apple Cake at Waverley Hills Restaurant recently and it was seriously the best Apple Cake I have ever eaten. I asked Chef Francois du Toit for the recipe and […]

Spiral Phyllo Cheese Pie – Savory or Sweet.

Spiral Phyllo Cheese Pie

My Spiral Phyllo Cheese Pie seems like a bit of controversy between the Greeks and the Bulgarians as to who made it first. I prefer to think about it as great minds think alike. This Spiral Phyllo Cheese pie is called Banitsa in Bulgaria and the Greeks call it Kichi Kozanis. It may vary in […]

Burnt Butter Banana Bread

Burnt Butter Banana Bread – a superb tongue twister, say it faster and faster. It has a wonderful ring to it, don’t you think. Like something you should eat NOW! This Burnt Butter Banana Bread is the result of my therapy session in the kitchen. I wanted (no needed) to make the ordinary extraordinary. I […]

Yogurt Cranberry Seed Rusks – Dunk it Eat it!

Yogurt Cranberry Seed Rusks

I love these Yogurt Cranberry Seed Rusks, the problem is, once I start, I cannot stop. My Yogurt Cranberry Seed Rusks are the result of using up all the bits and bobs in the seed jar, but also to see if I can replace buttermilk in a recipe with yogurt. Well, I killed two birds […]
