Creamy candied apple melkkos needs no introduction. This recipe like the multiple other South African recipes, nostalgic. It's like the rain pouring outside and the smell of the rain hitting the dry ground. The cinnamon taste with this creamy porridge/dessert just takes me back. I love the fact that you can have this breakfast/dessert either way.

Pumpkin fritters are vegan and oh so delicious! I was so surprised by these fritters that I made them two days in a row and even my better half could not tell the difference. They are crunchy on the inside and super soft and chewy. They remind me so much of my mother's pumpkin fritters that we would have for Sunday lunch and I think even she would say that they are tasty.

Maltabella banana muffins are absolutely amazing. I am going to rave about these muffins cos gosh they are close to the best muffins I have made so far. I wanted to get this recipe down pretty quick before I forgot how I made them. Maltabella is one of my favorite porridge from back home. We always pack our suitcases loaded with SA products and I am always sure to add this one stuffed in between the layers of clothing or extra food goodies I am bringing with.

Maple Roly Poly also is known as Rolpoeding in Afrikaans is one of my absolute favorite desserts since I was a little girl. Wheater this recipe is truly South African, it is one of the essential desserts from my South African core. Sunday afternoons post lunch we will have generous scoops of this delicious dessert with warm custard or cold cream.

Mocha Lamingtons are just unforgettably perfect for tea time, after dinner sweet spot or late munchie hour goodness. I absolutely love lamingtons, because like so many small bite size dessert it makes me think of my childhood days. These beauties were devoured after church alongside koeksisters, caramel tarts and milk tart. So many South African goodies that are in fact unforgettable and attached to my childhood memories.

Peppermint crisp cups are absolutely amazing... These desserts have been a lifesaver this week, just because we have come close to melting. The heat has been crazy this whole week. I made these cups one evening and they were so much enjoyed after we had a barbeque.

Summer potato salad is just a perfect combo when evenings are being spent outside. Lately, we have been firing up the BBQ almost every second night and that is a regular when you live in South Africa. Some families BBQ almost every night, just because it is so social, and we are pretty social people. It has been quite a change when we moved to France because first of all BBQing for yourself is not a lot of fun, haha and secondly what do you make with the meat that you can eat with the leftovers the next day? Potato salad of course...

Gluten-free cornbread is the perfect salad side dish around. We are such corn lovers in our household and would eat a couple of corn on the cobs per week. Especially my son, he just loves corn so much! I wanted to make a healthier, vegan and gluten-free version and the first go was a pretty good success. You can sub the gluten-free flour for normal whole wheat or white pastry flour for a more light effect.

Pineapple upside down cake has summer written all over it. It's light, decadent and has a sweet tang thanks to the pineapple. I am in love with these last couple days. The mornings are still a bit fresh, but then later in the day, it gets slightly heated and then cools down once again around four in the afternoon. The birds sing and the wildflowers, especially the pops of red from the poppy flowers make me so happy. There are lilac trees and elderflower trees, that I didn't even know was around us a year ago. I watch our son play, and he is just having a ball playing outside. This season of life I am enjoying so much.

Cinnamon dumplings aka souskluitjies are the ultimate South African comfort food. Lazy days, rainy days or just flat out days. This recipe is a fixer-upper. It's my pint of ice cream (if I was a Gilmore girl). It's doughy, soft like a cloud and drenched in a sweet cinnamon syrup, that makes you want to lick the bowl after...
