These Pear, Apple & Blueberry muffins are so light, tender and moist! The crunchy cinnamon sugar crust on top pairs perfectly with the muffin's soft crumb underneath. And the bursts of fresh, dark blue-purple blueberries throughout the muffins just makes you swoon!
The texture of these chocolate cupcakes is very moist, soft and creamy. And the flavour is SUPER chocolatey! The smooth chocolate ganache, slightly tangy chocolate frosting and pure dark chocolate shavings round off an indulgent texture and flavour experience. I didn’t think I would share one of my best recipes this soon, but here it is…
My super classified (until now) Philosophy of Yum Chocolate Frosting recipe. I have made it 1000’s of times, refined it and perfected it in my 5 years of full time baking. It is so flipping DELICIOUS that it makes you giggle, squirm and dance from the deliciousness!
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?
