Strawberry Sago Pudding – traditional with a twist.

Posted on August 15, 2017 by in desserts

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 […]

Roasted Cauliflower Salad

This Roasted Cauliflower Salad is everything a salad should be…….. in winter! My roasted Cauliflower salad is robust, packed with flavor and colorful.

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 […]

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 […]

Chunky Tomato Bean Soup

Chunky Tomato Bean soup with chunks of warm ciabatta…. what more can you ask for on a cold, rainy day. Chunky Tomato Bean soup is not one of those soups you have to cook for ours on end. You don’t have to soak the beans, peel and chop the tomatoes – none of that. It […]

Crépe Cake

Crépe cake was quite a challenge to make, not because of the technique or the ingredients, but because it was so damn difficult to bake enough pancakes for the cake before it got snatched by the kids. Crépe cake is something I have been wanting to try for such a long time. Last week, while […]

Mexican Tomato soup – spicy, creamy, rib-sticking and loaded with all sorts of yumminess. Mexican Tomato soup is the flavor of this winter it seems. I make a pot full almost every second day and the kids love it. When they come home after writing a subject or while they take study breaks, they go […]

Just think about it for a while….. pumpkin, deep-fried dough, cinnamon sugar and then….. melted chocolate. Pumpkin doughnuts sure is a mouthful to get your mind around, but once you give in to the temptation, you […]
