Philosophy of Yum Blog
My philosophy is yumminess. I am devoted to achieving the highest possible YUM factor in everything I cook & bake.
I don’t care if it takes double the effort because I essentially live from one “YUM high” to the next… You know, those foods & desserts that make you weep!
When I’m not looking for a “YUM high”, I am busy creating one 🙂
I share my secret baking methods, exclusive recipes and food adventures as a baker in Cape Town, South Africa.
This gluten free flour can be substituted gram for gram in ANY cake recipe! I also use it to make shortcrust pastry, rough puff pastry and even in homemade pasta! Pasta that can be rolled into sheets with a hand operated pasta machine – I kid you not!
Milk Tart is my favourite South African dessert EVER. It is a staple in every single South African grocery store, coffee shop, bakery, café etc. Golden, buttery shortcrust pastry with a super smooth and creamy milk custard filling and cinnamon - what is not to love?
