Pork and Beef Burger with Hassleback Potatoes and Slaw

Something perfect to make at a barbecue this summer, an amazing burger with some hassleback potatoes and slaw. It’s really simple to put together and make. I did it for a bunch of people coming over on the weekend, and it was really simple. I didn’t put each burger together and serve, but instead served…

Caramel Mousse

I can’t think of a way to actually start this post or describe the dessert other than it’s really yummy, so I’m just going to get into it. For the mousse: 1 cup whipping cream 60ml double cream 1/2 cup sugar 3/4tsp gelatin 1/2tbsp vanilla Sea salt to taste Whip one cup of the cream…

Creme Caramel

An all time favorite and super easy to make. And I’m not talking about the box version you get in the market that comes ready with the caramel and all you have to do is add milk. I’m talking about using 4 ingredients and spending less than 10 minutes putting it together. For the creme…

Creme Brulee

My absolute favorite thing ever. I have eaten three of these in the last 24 hours, since making them and am really trying to stop myself from eating the last. It’s surprisingly easy to make and doesn’t really take too much time. For the creme brulee: 290ml cream 1 vanilla pod, or some vanilla bean…

Chocolate Chip Muffins

There are a variety of different muffins in the world, but my absolute favourite is a chocolate chip muffin. It’s one of the pastries I pick up in a breakfast buffet in a hotel, or for a quick breakfast before school. The recipe used is almost the exact same as the lemon, poppy and flax…

Mint Chocolate Chip Cake

Another cake! This time a mint chocolate chip one. The inside is a wonderfully soft chocolate cake while the frosting is a simple, slightly minty buttercream. For the cake: 2 cups castor sugar 1 3/4 cups all-purpose flour 1 cup cocoa powder 1 1/2 tsp baking powder 1 1/2 tsp baking soda A pinch of…

Devil’s Food Cake

In honor of the birthday of one of my favorite people ever, I thought I would share a cake recipe. I’ve made plenty of devil’s food cakes before, the Betty Crocker one, and I can honestly say that this tastes exactly the same if not better. For the cake: 180g butter 290g sugar 3/4 cup…

Chocolate Roulade

When I first read chocolate roulade, the only thing I could picture was a chicken roulade but a chocolate version, so maybe a swiss roll. But when I read the recipe for Leiths Techniques Bible, I learnt that its like a swiss roll, but is in fact a fallen souffle. The recipe is a little…

Simple Chocolate Frosting

As a start to chocolate week, I thought I’d show you a simple chocolate buttercream frosting. In my opinion a beautiful chocolate ganache is wayy better however chocolate buttercream works better in some recipes. For the frosting: 1 cup butter Icing sugar, based on the flavour and texture you want. For a stiff frosting use…

Cheesecake Ice Cream

Cheesecake ice cream isn’t very conventional but after making it, I’m in love. The ice cream is mild and not very sweet and I find perfect if it is served after a really rich dessert. The cream cheese gives it a bit of saltiness and the lime juice cuts the slight sweetness. For the ice…

Orange Creamsicle Ice Cream

Most people associate orange with popsicles rather than ice cream. Though a creamsicle is the perfect mix of the two. Ingredients: 1/2 cup whole milk 6tbsp granulated sugar 1 cup heavy cream, divided 5 egg yolks 1/4tsp vanilla Zest of half an orange 1/4 cup orange juice To a large saucepan add the milk, sugar,…
