BANANA AND HONEY CREAM CHOCOLATE CUPCAKES

This flavour combination takes me back to being in primary school when we used to make hot chocolate laced with banana and honey. It was always really good and I have remembered the taste of it since growing up. That’s why I decided to make something out of this delicious combination, so I thought who…

STEAMED LEMONGRASS AND LIME CAKE

Lemongrass is one of the most exciting flavours when it comes to savoury cooking, it instantly reminds me of Thai food which has to be one of my favourites.

When I hear the word dumplings, I immediately think of the dumplings tucked up in a winter stew or the type you’d eat at your favorite Chinese restaurant. There are, however, also many sweet dumplings and these ones I made were amazing. The warm syrupy comfort of the dumpling is cut through by the citrus cream with perfection. For this…

LEMON AND WHITE CHOCOLATE CAKE

Lemon and white chocolate are a combination to be reckoned with. The sweet, citric flavour from the lemon against the indulgent creaminess of the white chocolate goes hand in hand. I was inspired to put these two flavours into a cake. For the sponge, I used a full proof family recipe that always comes out…

DARK CHOCOLATE COCONUT BALLS
