I first blogged this recipe a few years ago after dubbing it the Ultimate Chocolate Cake. That claim then got validated when this very recipe won the title for SA’s Best Chocolate Cake in one of our local glossy magazines. And since then it’s been a constant at many of our family birthdays and events. […]
When granadillas (or passion fruit, as they are more commonly known) are in season in South Africa, I buy them religiously. I love how their floral fragrance fills the house and their tart, juicy flesh always makes my mouth water. My paternal grandmother used to have a granadilla tree in her garden and whenever we […]
The title of this cake should really be spiced sweet potato cake with chantilly cream filling, maple buttercream and maple-candied nuts, but I thought that was a bit much plus it didn’t fit into the title tab. However, that really is what this cake is. A mouth full. And once you have a mouth full of […]
I heard about Tres Leches around 3 years ago and I have been intrigued ever since. A simple vanilla cake soaked in a mixture of 3 milks? Sign me up! I eventually got around to baking this cake two weeks ago and decided to use my easy-as-pie vanilla sponge cake recipe. This is really the […]
I am currently working on a very exciting project with Woolworths which is arguably, SA’s best retailer to create fabulous recipes for their brand new website and I thought I’d share some of the pics with you. Be sure to check out the recipes here.
When I was very young, whenever we would visit my paternal grandmother, I would be look forward to it with utter excited anticipation. I loved visiting her because, no only did she have a huge dog whom I adored, but she also had a beautiful parrot. I don’t remember the parrot’s name but I do […]
Tiramisu is one of my absolute favourite desserts. I love the creamy mascarpone and I love the mellow coffee flavour but what I love most is that it was one of my moms favourite desserts, and one she made incredibly well! My dad always jokes that my mom put so much alcohol in her tiramisu, […]
This is one of those show-stopper cakes that will impress your guests to no end. It does take a little work but it’s all very worth it. I first saw a crepe cake on Martha Stewart’s site and have wanted to try it ever since but knew I needed a special occasion for it […]
Last week I attended a blogger cook-off hosted by Canderel to promote their new product, Canderel Yellow. I have to be honest, I’ve never been a fan of artificial sweeteners as they always have a nasty aftertaste that I just can’t get over, so I very rarely use them. But I was pleasantly surprised to […]

When I was a little girl, I used to go with my gran to the University of Pretoria where both her and my mother worked (my mother was a lecturer in Criminology) and we would drink tea in the big conference rooms. Whenever I smell Rooibos tea I think of my gran. She used to […]
