Toad in the hole Don’t let the few ingredients fool you on this Toad in the hole recipe, it is fantastic.

Chocolate layer cake

Chocolate cake This chocolate cake uses hot milk and (I can’t tell you scientifically why it works out better, it just does, take it from me) in the recipe and just to add a little decadence to the cake I used both a chocolate icing on the outside and a meringue filling on the inside… It tastes just like melted marshmallow and who could not like that! If it is the last thing you do in the kitchen this year,...
Buttermilk and bacon Cornbread

Buttermilk and bacon Cornbread...

Buttermilk bacon Cornbread I reckon cornbread is about as South African as you can get but seldom see it anywhere. Just as an aside, when you next make pap for the braai, add a tin of sweetcorn about 20 minutes before you serve it, it’s really great. back to the cornbread. This cornbread recipe uses whole kernels which I like as a sweet pop in the mouth as you are munching your way through it. The buttermilk makes...

Buttermilk pancakes

Buttermilk pancakes...

Buttermilk pancakes These buttermilk pancakes are beautifully light and puff up so nicely. I love to put a nice size piece of soft butter on top of a stack, smother them in maple syrup and have a few pieces of crisp streaky bacon on the side but serve them with strawberries warmed in a pot with a little sugar or anything else you feel like. You cam alos break up the crisped bacon into small pieces and add them to the...
Sticky buns

Sticky buns...

Sticky buns I can seldom pass a bakery without stopping in to see what is coming out of the oven and sticky buns have got to be a real weakness for me and making them is quite a process but worth every minute when you see them come out of the oven and get to dig in while they are still hot. I’ve also been known to smother them in custard for a real treat. This recipe makes 9 sticky buns in a 20x20cm cake tin. Baking...

It is well worth making the pastry yourself so take a few minutes extra and you and your family will...

Cream cheese icing...

Best Cream cheese icing Cream cheese icing is what you would normally find on a carrot cake and using this recipe exactly as it is makes enough to cover the top and sides of a 25cm round cake. The icing is not very sweet but creamy and really delicious. It’s a very versatile recipe so if you like your icing sweeter, add a 1/4 cup of icing sugar to the mix and to make a chocolate version, add the extra sugar and...
