Cherry cheesecake

This cherry cheesecake was made with the bountiful cherry harvest that we have been blessed with this year. It has a crisp crust, with a cherry and soft cheese filling, and drizzled with cherry syrup and melted white chocolate on top. A truly summery, fruity dessert. My cherry […]

Coconut, strawberries and cream cake

After eating them as they were to our heart’s content, some of the strawberries went into this coconut, strawberries and cream cake. We had friends over at ours after months and that in itself calls for a celebration. So made this cake for dessert celebrating friendship and of […]

Rocky road squares

I made these rocky road squares a few days ago. They are filled with goodies and treats like mini marshmallows and malted milk biscuits to the good stuff like walnuts, cranberries and sunflower seeds. Everything is then bound together with luxurious chocolate and topped with desiccated coconut. Memories- […]

Rhubarb, almond and white chocolate cake

I harvested a bunch of rhubarb a couple of days ago. The plant was a gift from our next door neighbour and we have been enjoying it for a few years now. There is so much joy in cooking with home grown produce. And with the year’s first […]

We don’t celebrate Easter. But, when Easter comes around, for some reason, I always feel the urge to bake something chocolatey. Must be all those Easter eggs that are in our faces every time we visit the supermarket from long before Easter. Or maybe it’s just that all […]

Spiced apple crumble

Lemon cake

Lemon cake is my other half’s favourite and that’s what he got for his birthday today. He doesn’t like too much of a fuss on his cake and prefers simple flavours, especially the citrus ones. But then again, he doesn’t like the flavour to be too intense. And […]
