Raw Vegan Brownies. Not what you were expecting from me, was it? It’s true, I usually aim for decadence at all costs without much consideration for health or dietary requirements. But isn’t it time our Read More
We’ve spoken about dessert mash-ups before (in my Lemon Meringue Fudge recipe). Only good things can happen when you merge the best elements of two desserts into one sensational combo. Take the spiced apples and crunchy crumble topping of an apple crumble. Now add in the rich creaminess of a vanilla cheesecake. The result is a Read More
I used to love ginger loaf as a child, and discovered that my husband did too. I think the last time I baked one was a good 15 years ago! So it was high time I baked it again.
Making it was thoroughly enjoyable – there is something very satisfying about mixing up the dark and spicy molasses-rich batter. Read More
I discovered a wonderful product called Blueberry Powder. It is made by simply freeze-drying blueberries! The resulting product is a sticky concentrated powder which adds a powerful flavour and colour boost to foods. A great way to up the nutrient content of your smoothie bowl breakfast. Or in this case, your triple layered dessert.

A few weeks ago we were having a large group of friends around and I needed a relatively light dessert to feed a crowd, that could be prepared in advance.
Autumn is here! I love this time of year – the crimson and gold trees and crunchy carpets of leaves on the streets. It also means it’s dark when the alarm clock goes off in the mornings, which can make it a bit of an effort to get out of bed. So why not reward yourself with this delicious Apple Crumble granola?
We have our Aussie and Kiwi friends to thank for these absolutely scrumptious biscuits! Let me explain why. ANZAC stands for Australian and New Zealand Army Corps. Anzac Day is a national day of remembrance which is celebrated every year on 25 April – the anniversary of the Anzac’s landing at Gallipoli, in Turkey during World War I.
Anzac biscuits contain no eggs, as these Read More
I have a sister who loves to bake, just like I do. When I stayed with her recently, I tasted her latest creation – this totally addictive chocolate granola. She worked hard at perfecting the recipe, and then kindly shared it with me. I promised that I’d send her a shout-out for that. So thanks Sandra!
Considering how delicious this chocolate granola tastes, I was quite surprised to find that is Read More
