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?
Lemon Meringue Pie can be a very tricky dessert to make. The 3 different components (pastry, filling and meringue) require perfect execution. This is a super user friendly recipe that yields perfect results! No weeping meringue, no crumbling base and no runny filling. Perfect and delicious - my ultimate recipe for Lemon Meringue Pie :)
This chewy-fudgy Dark Chocolate brownie is utterly incredible! The cranberries add a sharp fruity zing and also make these brownies a lovely festive treat. The crunchy, toasted coconut flakes just bring the whole experience together visually and flavour wise. Some clients of mine have tried literally every brownie flavour I’ve made and they are in total agreement that this is my best one to date.
