Chicken, cheese and corn muffins

Last weekend my brother-in-law stayed over after flying up to Joburg for the Pixies, Rock on the lawns concert.  I wanted to make something nice for breakfast before he flew back home to Cape Town.  I based this recipe on an Angela Day one for ‘Cheese muffins with ham and corn’ but made quite a few changes.  They were really yummy ...

Ostrich Mince Bolognese

Since discovering Ostrich Mince, I never use Beef mince.  Ostrich meat is so lean that even extra lean beef tastes fatty in comparison.  Ostrich mince is available at Woolworths and Pick n Pay.   Of course you can use Beef, or Chicken mince in this recipe if you prefer.  This is a family favourite and we eat it once a ...

Chocolate Marbled Black Cherry Fridge Cheesecake

The ingredients for this Chocolate Marbled Black Cherry  cheesecake are expensive but it’s worth the cost for the reward of a very special treat.  An added bonus is that the recipe is egg free which means that my egg allergic son can eat it (provided that egg free biscuits are used in the crumb base). Before you start, please note ... Read More »

Domi’s favourite Malva Pudding

MALVA PUDDING (serves 8) INGREDIENTS 1 Cup (250 ml) sugar 1 egg 1 Tbs (15 ml) apricot jam 1 Cup flour 1 tsp bicarbonate soda ... Read More »

Curried Chickpea Salad

I love trying new recipes.  This time the Curried Chickpea salad in Pick ‘n Pay’s Fresh Living Jan/Feb 17 magazine appealed.  However being me I made a few changes.  3 Tbs curry powder seemed a huge amount, 1 tsp of mild and spicy curry powder was absolutely adequate.  I didn’t like the idea of raw baby marrows so cooked them ...

Cliff and Fjord’s corn dogs

I’m not the only one who likes likes to play in the kitchen,  when Cliff finds the time to cook or bake what he makes is generally pretty awesome.  Now and then he makes corn dogs which are great kids food (and we enjoy them too).  Here is his recipe. Dad and Fjord’s corn dogs (makes approx 28) 1 cup ... Read More »

Ginger Preserve in Syrup

I have been baking Christmas cakes, lots and lots of them.  A very special ingredient is ginger preserve which I had always bought from Woolies.  Recently I never found the time to go to the shops to replenish stock and it occurred to me that this must be something which I can make.  I looked up a whole lot of ...

I have a little home industry baking business, Sula’s Kitchen.  A customer asked me to make Marie Fudge.  I had never tasted let alone made this traditional Afrikaans treat but set about looking for recipes.  I found a few but was not totally happy with the result, after a few tweaks this is the recipe which I now use.  My ...

Bread maker cinnamon, raisin and cranberry bread

Today adapted this recipe to make cinnamon, raisin and cranberry bread in the bread maker / bread machine.  This will be a regular around here in future.  I suspect that it would also be pretty darn good in a bread and butter pudding. Ingredients 1 Cup water 2 Tbs (30 ml) sunflower oil 3 cups bread flour 3 tablespoons sugar ... Read More »
