Pistachio orange bundt cake

Pistachio orange bundt cake is a beautiful subtle spiced cake with hints of pistachio and orange. I absolutely love the texture of this cake. The nutty flavors just add such a grainy yet light spring to this delectable mini bundt cake. The frosting is undeniably perfectly tangy and breaks the too much sweetness overall.

Mocha Lamingtons

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.

Pineapple upside down cake

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.

Strawberry salted caramel cheesecakes

Strawberry salted caramel cheesecakes show just how much I miss my mom right now. Women should be celebrated, mothers should be celebrated because being a mother is a hard job. I wish I could celebrate my mother this Sunday, she raised four kids, which makes her pretty amazing!

Banana breakfast cake

Banana breakfast cake will solve all my breakfast problems these days...windy weather, lazy days, drowning in rain equals banana cake if you please. I will opt for banana cake for every situation, it is that good! Made with cooked amaranth, banana and buckwheat flour. This moist cake is hard to believe that it is actually good for you!

Hazelnut jam buttercream cake

HAZELnut jam buttercream cake is quite a mouthful to say and to enjoy because there is no taking small bites of this delicious cake. I made this beauty for a baby shower that was supposed to take place but instead the little princess made a surprise entry right on the day of the baby shower. Hazelnut cake was quite fitting for the lady in pink because she was given the pretty name Hazel. What are the chances right? But the perfect way to celebrate was with cake indeed!

"Hertzoggie" Ricotta cake

Hertzoggie Ricotta cake is certainly not Italian. I have been wanting to share this one for quite some time. It has Ricotta in it and that qualifies as Italian right? We all know their desserts of choice are Tiramisu, Cannoli, Biscotti, and Panna cotta...
