I love Indian sweets and these are so easy to make at home. My oats and cashewnut barfi sandwiched in a layer of sweet coconut is the perfect dessert to end the evening.
Peanut butter and chocolate are the best of friends in these delicious and easy to make peanut butter cups!
You can’t go wrong with my cheese cake recipe. This raspberry cheese cake is rich and topped with a layer of raspberry coulis and fresh plump raspberries and a light dusting of icing sugar.
Warm carrot cake with a hint of spice and a cup of tea, can it get any better than that? Yes, it can! My version uses crushed coconut cookies to give it that lovely hint of coconut and a different depth of flavour to the ordinary carrot cake. If you are not a fan of cookies, substitute with chopped walnuts for a classic carrot cake recipe.
Red velvet pancakes scream Valentine’s. And Valentine’s is round the corner. Make these yummy fluffy red velvet pancakes and serve with a scoop of vanilla ice cream or a cream cheese frosting. So delicious!
Fluffy brownies crumbled into a tall glass with generous scoops of Caramel Nut Ice cream and a drizzle of Chocolate Sauce makes this Caramel Nut Brownie Sundae one that you will crave for.
Chocolate Salami is the perfect snack to go with a cup of coffee. Here’s a no-fail recipe.
We’ve all heard of apple pies and love them too. This is a twist on the classic using bananas to make Banana Pie Rolls. Yummy Banana Pie filling rolled in a thin rice pancake and fried to a crisp golden brown. Top it with ice cream and a sprinkling of icing sugar and eat away! This recipe is also great for when you have a bunch of bananas lying in the kitchen about to get spoilt. What more do you need?!
The idea of apple rings stuffed with sweet rice and coated in a crumble mix came to me while watching cooking videos on Facebook one early morning. The video showed how to make cheese burger bites using onion rings which were then breaded and deep fried. I used a similar concept which led to this delicious dessert which I call the modern sister of an apple crumble.
Try these Spanish-style “doughnuts” that are piped and fried to get a crispy outside and a soft but chewy inside that is delicious with a thick chocolate sauce. The use of rice my churros with chocolate dipping sauce recipe gives the churros its chewy interior which I find is not very easy to obtain when making the churros without the rice. My recipe may not be authentic, but it sure as hell is finger licking!
