Espresso french toast

Espresso french toast is the best of both worlds I tell you. Nothing beats a good slice of bread fried to perfection, drenched in cream and maple syrup. It's a slice of heaven with an extra shot of happiness to kick off your day!

Festive spiced chocolate chip cookies

Festive spiced chocolate chip cookies are part of my baking itinerary this festive season. How quickly and super long this year has felt. It feels pretty weird making my first batch of festive treats, I just blinked and it's December again. Chocolate chip is a favorite for so many households. Who doesn't love chocolate or desserts? These are spiced with ginger, nutmeg, and cinnamon. Bringing some Christmas cheer to a very different Christmas that's for sure!

Malva pudding Brioche donuts

Malva pudding Brioche donuts, yep there is such a thing as heaven in every bite and these fluffy clouds of goodness do not only combine the two cultures that I have been delved in but also express the memories of tastes that I just can't seem to shake. I love Brioche, because it's soft and light, and then again I love malva pudding that is more sticky and dense. These two are rolled in to one, and gosh it's just yum.

Chocolate Mousse cake

Chocolate Mousse cake might be my down fall, when it comes to cake I'm not such a big fan, I like baked puddings, chocolate mousse, pavlovas you name it, anything other than a cake is more appetizing, but this cake has me turning a new leaf...

Gingerbread cranberry tiramisu

Gingerbread cranberry tiramisu is the cherry on top for my festive creation this year. The list got shorter and shorter by the end, but the grand finale was so worth the wait. This tiramisu is spiced with season's finest spice and produce, layered with coffee syrup and topped with a creamy whip for that creme de la creme. This plant-based version will blow your guest's minds and you'll probably want to make it again very very soon.

Tipsy tart cupcakes

Tipsy tart cupcakes are just another way to celebrate this Festive season. Whatever the occasion calls for these cupcakes are a perfect way to set the mood. Sticky toffee and delectable toffee kind of puddings are what I'm living for this festive season. Easy on the booze this time around, but none the less I'm not skipping on the sticky gooey goodness.

Lentil Bobotie sausage rolls

Lentil bobotie sausage rolls are a must on your festive table. These scrumptious little pies are so tasty and will even appease the meat-eaters out there. Lentil bobotie is a staple in our household and I can even dare to say so myself this recipe is one for the books to make over and over again. The festive season can be very stressful and work some, so sometimes it's nice to make some ahead of time.
