Banana Caramel pudding – cheat’s version

Posted on February 11, 2018 by in desserts

Banana Caramel Pudding

Banana Caramel pudding – what is not to love about it? My Banana Caramel pudding had all the comforting notes of a trifle, but I can hardly call it that. It was rather spur-of-the moment thinking today. I have not made pudding for Sunday lunch in ages, and this morning I thought, IT IS TIME. […]

Lemon Mousse

This Lemon Mousse reminded me of the classic Pineapple and Ideal Milk Fridge Tart that we all grew up with. Even as a child I could happily finish off the tart in one go. The Lemon Mousse Recipe seems complicated at first, but is is basically 3 steps. Just read through the recipe and you’ll […]

Strawberry Sago Pudding

My Strawberry Sago Pudding is going to raise eyebrows…….my dad’s eyebrows. He loves sago pudding, but not the jam thing, least of all strawberry jam. The Strawberry Sago Pudding is refreshingly different and it looks rather pretty, even if I have to say so myself. I have had so many requests for a sago pudding […]

poached guavas

Poached guavas with thin runny custard took me right back to my gran’s kitchen in Ceres. During winter, she always had guavas in her fruit bowl on the kitchen table. As kids, we hated poached guavas. We hated the fresh guavas in the fruit bowl even more, because as the guavas ripens, it has quite […]

Malva Pudding Milkshake

Malva Pudding Milkshake? What the fudge? It cannot be real, can it? This Milkshake takes the classic Malva Pudding to a whole new place. It is confusing, but so so delicious. A pudding traditionally served warm with custard, is now cold. I cannot say the idea is my own invention, but I searched the internet […]

panna cotta

Panna Cotta is my new go-to dessert. Firstly because I can literally bribe my son to do any chores around the house if Panna Cotta is waiting in the fridge for him. Panna Cotta also is a totally stress free dessert when entertaining. Stress free? Nope, I am not kidding, I know you all think […]

Fruit crumble has to be the essential winter dessert. It’s comforting, crunchy, creamy, fruity and most of all, it is warm. Making Fruit crumble is much easier than making a pie or tart and it is definitely the most versatile of all winter desserts. You can choose our own fruit, your own crumbly topping, so […]

Melkkos and rekindling childhood friendships!

Melkkos

Melkkos is a South African Heritage dish that brings back fond childhood memories of families gathering around the kitchen table eating bowls of this deliciousness with sugar and cinnamon. Melkkos has so many recipes and I don’t think it is a regional thing, I think every family has its own unique way of making melkkos. […]
