Peanut Butter Semifreddo with Chocolate Fudge Sauce

Peanut Butter Semifreddo with Chocolate Fudge Sauce

My love of all things Italian continues with this Semifreddo recipe, combining the best qualities of ice-cream and gelato. Though Semifreddo can be made in a number of ways, I prefer the traditional method of cooking a sabayon (a cooked custard using egg yolks), to which you add flavourings and whipped cream. It’s a little … Read more

Healthy Nut Butter Chocolate


I can’t lie. The idea of ‘healthy’ chocolate has always pretty much left me cold. That is until now. When it came time to sample this health enhancing chocolate I was, as always, prepared for the usual disappointment. Let’s face it… chocolate’s chocolate – there ain’t no prizes for second place. And it is true… you’re … Read more

Chocolate Cupcakes with Peanut Butter Cream & Caramel Sauce


You gotta love technology! Up until this last weekend, I’ve made do with a hand beater during the three years I’ve been writing this blog. And, I never figured it was a big deal… That is, until my hand beater gave up the ghost, and I was forced to buy a replacement. This time, though, I … Read more

Chocolate & Salted Caramel Layer Cake


It’s exactly a month ago that I made this celebration cake for my brother’s birthday. Yes, it’s taken that long for me to get around to posting it – what with all the Christmas baking and cooking over the last month, I just haven’t had a chance till now. So, without further ado, let me … Read more

White Chocolate, Bailey's & Orange Pots de Creme


By far the loveliest baked custard I’ve ever come across is a Pot de Creme – dig down beneath the surface, and it’s unbelievably smooth and silky, like liquid satin. I love them so much, I’ve made a bunch of them – a ridiculous amount of them actually… Butterscotch Pots de Creme, Espresso Pots de … Read more

Gluten-Free Easy Chocolate Cake

Gluten-Free Easy Chocolate Cake

I’ve made a couple of different chocolate cakes before, but this Easy Chocolate Cake has just become my go-to recipe. Why? Coz for very little effort (no electric mixer in sight) I got a moist, tender, super chocolatey, not to mention… gluten-free cake, just perfect for any occasion. I paired it with a gorgeous cream cheese icing … Read more

Healthy Choc-Nut Milkshake


Seriously… this 5 ingredient Choc-Nut Milkshake is like drinking chocolate pudding! But, unlike the saturated fats and sugar-overdose you’d expect to get from your standard chocolate milkshake, this baby delivers you antioxidants, anti-inflammatory Omega 3 fatty acids, protein, fibre, potassium and calcium. What’s more, it’s insanely delicious! I found this wonderful recipe on my favourite website … Read more

Zucchini Chocolate Cupcakes with Mascarpone Cream


Want an exceptionally moist chocolate cupcake? All you need do is add zucchini. I kid you not! It’s the zucchini (or courgettes as we refer to them Down Under) that delivers the incredible moistness to this dark chocolate cupcake. But, in case you’re wondering, you won’t actually taste the zucchini. It’s in there providing some honest … Read more

Chocolate Lamingtons

Chocolate Lamingtons

Can there be anything more inviting than a lamington? Created in Australia, but beloved by both Australia and New Zealand in equal measure, it’s a retro treat dear to our hearts. It used to be that you could find lamingtons in every cafe around up until a couple of decades ago but, as we got used to more sophisticated … Read more

Flourless Chocolate & Pear Cake with Chantilly Cream

Flourless Chocolate & Pear Cake with Chantilly Cream

Chocolate and pears – what a great combination! That, and a dash of brandy, and you’re onto a winner! This cake – a dark flourless chocolate cake, studded with juicy pears and topped with an apricot and brandy glaze – is as much a dessert as something you’d have for afternoon tea. That’s actually how I served … Read more
