Or if you are looking for a dessert to impress your dinner guests, why not try a decadent rich peppermint crisp tart, or a tangy citrus cheesecake. And let’s not forget my signature cocktail, the creamy Dom Pedro, made with ice cream and Baileys liqueur. That’s sure to go down well an any special occasion.
Easy Apple Cake
This is one of my most popular recipes – it takes only minutes to whip together, and is so simple to make, even a child could do it.
These are easier to make than you might think. I’ve got step-by-step instructions to make the perfect choux pastry.
Chocolate Magic Cake
This cake certainly lives up to its name. Just mix everything together in one bowl, pop it in the oven, and it separates into 3 distinct layers, as if by magic.
South African Milk Tart
Every family in South Africa has their own version of a milk tart. It’s sure to be a hit with your family too.
Easy Coconut Pie
My all-time favourite. I love the way it separates as it bakes.
Dom Pedro Cocktail
In South Africa you find these on the dessert menu, even though they contain alcohol. A glass of ice cream laced with Baileys liqueur. Definitely not one for the kiddies!
Black Forest Trifle
A delicious trifle, filled with cherries, and laced with cherry brandy for the adults, or black current syrup for the kiddies. Trifles aren’t just for Christmas!
This is a light and refreshing dessert, with the juice and zest of 3 different citrus fruits – orange, lemon and lime.
Peppermint Crisp Tart
This dessert is made with double cream and caramel condensed milk, but it is saved from being too sweet by the addition of peppermint essence.
