Chocolate Mud Cake, is super decadent, moist and fudgy. With a dark rich flavour of chocolate and a hint of coffee, to me it's like a chocolate brownies' luxurious older brother. This Layered Chocolate Mud Cake is an absolute showstopper. I've sandwiched the delicious layers together with whipped cream frosting and fresh blackberries.

Cherries have to be my all time favourite fuit. It’s such a pity that we have such a short window to enjoy them each year. I don’t often use them for baking or cooking since, I must confess, I usually gobble them up before that. But this time I restrained myself long enough to make this deliciously simple little rustic Cherry Almond Cake.

This simple sponge recipe literally takes 5 minutes and zero equipment to through together the batter. It's incredibly light and moist and absolutely delicious even without icing/frosting or glaze. Feel free to substitute the lemon for any other citrus fruit, or just vanilla if you wish. This is the classic lemon version with added fresh raspberries between the layers and freeze-dried raspberries in the icing/frosting. It might look impressive but is actually deceivingly simple.

Traditional shortbread cookies are delicious but can be a little predictable. I love adding nuts to them, and was craving some bright citrus flavours too, so why not combine them. These Pistachio, Lemon & Lime shortbread cookies aren't overly sweet and are packed with crunchy nuts and zesty flavour. For an added extra I've dipped them in white chocolate and sprinkled over some extra zest, but this is totally optional. Especially if you don't like them too sweet.

There's not much to say about this deliciously traditional South African favourite. It is very difficult to explain it to those who've never had this wonderful treat, but I guess it's a type of custard tart, but less sweet, less eggy, more milky and topped with cinnamon. Encased in a super yummy, buttery crust, I haven't met a dairy consuming South African yet that doesn't love this dessert.

This Chocolate Brownie Tart has my Pretzel & Peanut Crust, which gives a ton of crunch, as well as a little salty touch, which always enhances the chocolate flavour. This is topped with a super fudgy chocolate brownie layer. And finally, it is all smothered in a smooth, decadent dark chocolate Ganache.

What could be more delightful than crispy, golden phyllo, crunchy nuts and sweet, sticky honey syrup. This dessert is super decadent and utterly delicious. It requires a bit of construction time, and a delicate touch, but is not as difficult to prepare as you might think, especially since we use bought phyllo pastry. It is totally worth it though.

I love oat cookies for their crispy outsides and chewy centres, and who can resist the classic combination of peanut butter and chocolate. These are such an easy and delicious treat that would work great as a foodie gift too. Just remember to make a double batch in that case as they are super irresistible and will disappear from the cookie jar very fast.

This is definitely a must try for chocolate lovers and will surely become your go to special occasion cake.

I so love using seasonal ingredients in cooking and baking. With winter in full swing, citrus fruit season has finally arrived. This is the time of year I always seem to crave a slice of cake, in particular this citrus loaf cake, soaked in syrup to make it super moist. You can use any citrus fruit for this. I just happen to have the most deliciously sweet clementines in the house at the moment. Drizzle Cake, Loaf Cake, Syrup, Baking Recipes, Homemade, Seasons, Fruit, My Favorite Things, Cooking

Pecan Nut Pie

Pecan Nut Pie is probably one of my all time favourite desserts. Served warm with a dollop of good quality vanilla ice cream…. It doesn't get much better for me. What adds to the deliciously nutty and caramelly flavour in this recipe is browning the butter. It makes that world of difference to the depth of flavour. I also love serving it with a few berries as the tartness counteracts the sweetness of the pie a little.

I just love a good rustic loaf. The salty Kalamata olives add a delicious depth of flavour to this simple bread. It obviously works wonderfully for any savoury sandwich, but is equally delicious served warm with just a bit of farm butter melting over the top. My favourite way to enjoy this bread is alongside a cheeseboard. Dipped in some extra virgin olive oil or dolloped with your favourite pesto or hummus and a side of strong vintage cheese, it’s the perfect summer lunch or picnic loaf.

Traditional shortbread cookies are delicious but can be a little predictable. I love adding nuts to them, and was craving some bright citrus flavours too, so why not combine them. These Pistachio, Lemon & Lime shortbread cookies aren't overly sweet and are packed with crunchy nuts and zesty flavour. For an added extra I've dipped them in white chocolate and sprinkled over some extra zest, but this is totally optional. Especially if you don't like them too sweet.

For an added extra I've dipped them in white chocolate and sprinkled over some extra zest, but this is totally optional. Especially if you don't like them too sweet.

There's not much to say about this deliciously traditional South African favourite. It is very difficult to explain it to those who've never had this wonderful treat, but I guess it's a type of custard tart, but less sweet, less eggy, more milky and topped with cinnamon. Encased in a super yummy, buttery crust, I haven't met a dairy consuming South African yet that doesn't love this dessert.

This Chocolate Brownie Tart has my Pretzel & Peanut Crust, which gives a ton of crunch, as well as a little salty touch, which always enhances the chocolate flavour. This is topped with a super fudgy chocolate brownie layer. And finally, it is all smothered in a smooth, decadent dark chocolate Ganache. For added chocolatiness I sprinkled it with cocoa powder, but this is an optional extra.

I just love a good rustic loaf. The salty Kalamata olives add a delicious depth of flavour to this simple bread. It obviously works wonderfully for any savoury sandwich, but is equally delicious served warm with just a bit of farm butter melting over the top. My favourite way to enjoy this bread is alongside a cheeseboard. Dipped in some extra virgin olive oil or dolloped with your favourite pesto or hummus and a side of strong vintage cheese, it’s the perfect summer lunch or picnic loaf.
