Warm citrus pudding

Warm citrus pudding

As a child, this was one of my all-time favourite winter desserts. It’s called a self-saucing citrus pudding and just what you need on a cold day. I can imagine the flavours as I am writing. The feather light batter on top has a sweet-sour sauce which forms underneath as it bakes and is quite a surprise element if you have never eaten this before. So, if you’re making this for the first time, don’t be alarmed when you dish up – this is how it’s supposed to be.

Pink Lady® Apple cake

Pink Lady® Apple cake

I love Pink Lady® Apples and although they are not back in season yet, I am keeping this recipe on hand for the moment they are on shelf in May. And seeing that South Africans love to bake, I just have to share this delicious cake so long.
The moist cake with its soft texture is really special and similar to a typical Ukranian apple cake. Ian Sklarsky shared this family recipe with the Pink Lady® team and they were so excited about it, that they shared it with us at a lovely launch event a few years ago. The natural sweetness of the apples and the ability to hold their structure, even when baked, is just what you need for this cake.

Mini lemon polenta cakes with herbs

Mini lemon polenta cakes with herbs

Westfalia Fruit has four flavours in the avocado oil range: Plain, Garlic, Lemon and Butter – great to use in any recipe where oil is needed. I often use the lemon-flavoured avocado oil as it adds a citrusy aroma and taste to anything from salads and roasted or steamed veggies to chicken and fish. It is especially good when baking, like in these light and fluffy mini tea loaves.
In this recipe, the polenta and nuts adds an interesting texture and the lovely zestiness from the lemon-flavoured avocado oil is perfect with the hint of fresh herbs.

Granola-krummel met vye

Hierdie granola met neute en speserye is ’n baie lekker en veelsydige item om gereed te hê, veral as jy skielik iets indrukwekkends vir gaste moet voorsit. Onderaan die resep is ’n paar maniere waarop dit gebruik kan word. Die gebakte mengsel vries uitstekend, so ek maak sommer ’n dubbele hoeveelheid.

Sjokoladekolwyntjies met appel

Sjokoladekolwyntjies met appel

Suid-Afrikaners is dol oor bak. En hierdie tyd van die jaar is dit beslis een of ander tyd deel van almal se feestydbeplanning. Sjokolade en kaneel is ’n smullekker kombinasie en in hierdie klam kolwyntjies is die subtiele smaak van die kaneel baie lekker – veral omdat dit ook met appel gekombineer word. Dit mag dalk na ’n vreemde kombinasie klink, maar om die suiker in die kolwyntjies minder te maak, is die natuurlike soet smaak van appels gebruik. En appel en kaneel vul mekaar se smake altyd baie goed aan.

Gesonde peuselhappies vir kinders

Gesonde peuselhappies vir kinders

Mieliemeelmuffins, ’n knibbelhappie met appel, klapper en neute of dalk groentekebabs – dis alles peuselkos waarvan my kinders baie hou. As ek met lekker en gesonde peuselgoed hul eksamentyd so bietjie makliker kan maak, dan doen ek dit met liefde. ’n Mens voel mos dikwels lus vir iets om te eet as jy vir lang tye moet sit en swot. Die idees is natuurlik ook perfek vir die hele gesin se kosblikke. En oor ’n maand is dit amper vakansietyd, so dan is hierdie happies sommer lekker padkos ook.

En as jy van ’n soeter smakie hou, is daar vars pere met heuning, kaneel en neute.
