If there is one thing in life that I crave the most it would be banana bread. Honestly it just fulfils all my greatest desires, it’s sweet but not overly sweet, it’s got all the texture I need and filling enough to count as a snack. Plus it’s made with fruit so it’s practically a salad right? This Easy Fluffy Banana Bread recipe from the lovely Luyanda is no different. It is the perfect breakfast, snack, dessert or all of the above.
I’ve decided to whip up this Easy Fluffy Banana Bread in collaboration with Royal Baking Powder for Father’s Day this year because well which dad doesn’t love a slice of banana bread, am I right? PLUS they are are giving away a R1000 hamper over on my FACEBOOK page! yay!
Not only is it heavenly but it’s also SO easy to whip up. It’s truly a matter a throwing everything into a mixing bowl, then into a bread tin, giving it a good bake and BAM! Banana bread heaven!!
Serve thick slices of this Easy Fluffy Banana Bread topped with a drizzle of honey, a little cream cheese or even on its own with a cup of coffee and you’re definitely impress dad!
I often whip up a loaf of this baby, then cut it into slices and keep it in the freezer. Then when the craving hits (and you know it will) you simply pop a slice into the toaster and you’re good to go. Can’t get more convenient and delicious than that!

This deliciously aromatic Rosemary & Lavender Naked Cake is a treat for both the nose and palate. With its beautiful fragrant flavours infused into the cake and frosting, this super easy naked cake is destined to be an absolute winner!
Nothing says celebration like a cake and I love any excuse to whip up a sweet treat. And so with Mother’s Day around the corner, an extra special cake was definitely in order. And that is how this beautiful Rosemary & Lavender Naked Cake was born!
My mother and I are both massive fans of Lavender and Rosemary. So I thought it would be the perfect flavour combo to celebrate our relationship – and I was not disappointed! The combination is deliciously fragrant and I am sure my mama is gonna love it!
Rosemary and Lavender are both strong, aromatic flavours. They compliment each other perfectly in this soft and fluffy cake. It’s a true flavour fest. Layers on layers of sweet and delicately savoury flavour – what more could you want from a cake?!
Just how I like it, this recipe is super simple and quick to make. It’s an easy, classic cake where all the flavour comes from simple steeping and all the beauty comes from pretty, simple frosting. I highly recommend the Kitchen Inspire palette knife to easily achieve frosting perfection – it was a dream to use.
It’s no secret I am massively obsessed with naked cakes – but who isn’t?! By definition, they are unfinished cakes and so in theory, they should look sloppy but they always turn out stunningly elegant. Naked cakes are the perfect celebration cake: they wow a crowd but are super simple to make. This delicious Rosemary & Lavender Naked Cake is a perfect example of just this!
A delicious and beautiful twist on the classic hot cross buns, these Hot Cross Bundt Cakes are sure to be a spicy hit this Easter. Super easy to make, a crowd pleaser and decadently delicious.
Easter is one of my favourite times of year. I think it is because it really reminds me of my childhood. Getting up super early just to scavenge in the garden looking for all things delicious. Then spending the rest of the morning helping my mom create a delicious Easter feast and then of course munching down a whole bunch of hot cross buns after lunch.
We all know that warm spicy flavour of hot cross buns is part of what makes Easter so distinctive. But this year I wanted to do something a little different but with the same moreish flavour. And we all know I love a good bundt cake (see my fave lemon bundt cake here) and with Kitchen Inspires adorable mini bundt cake mould I just knew this would be a hit in the house.
I kept the recipe fairly simple but the flavours are definitely still all the there. The recipe is basically a one-bowl recipe which is my favourite kinda recipe and the mould is a super no-fuss mould, nothing sticks, the bundts pop out easily and it looks super pretty. Sounds like a win all around right?
One of my favourite parts about this recipe is that you can make a massive batch of it and freeze the Hot Cross Bundt Cakes. Then later when your craving a little easter, simply pop one into the microwave for a few seconds and bam!
Nothing beats a delicious, creamy dessert that you can whip up in 6 minutes! This Instant Pot Butterscotch & Caramel Dessert is the the only Instant Pot dessert recipe you’ll ever need!
I was gifted an Instant Pot a little while ago, and I’m not going to lie as I started unpacking the box it felt a little daunting. But as I read the instructions and looked up a few recipes I quickly realised that this was probably going to become my new best friend. And man was I right. Everything is genuinely so quick and easy to make in it. And that my friends is NOT an understatement. No matter what you make, from veg, to meat to this darn delicious Instant Pot Butterscotch & Caramel Dessert everything is painless and super quick.
I obviously wanted to make a dessert so I thought I would make something with salted caramel. Mostly because I’ve been salted caramel obsessed for years. I’ve also been craving those butterscotch flavours. So I did what any normal person would do and made a dessert with both.
I made a super easy butterscotch pudding that gets popped into your Instant Pot for 6 minutes (jip, that’s all folks). I then made my classic salted caramel recipe and drizzled (okay, drenched) it on top.
Layers of crêpes filled with a traditional South African milktart custard filling. This Milktart Crêpe Cake made with Stork Bake is the ultimate breakfast in bed or scrumptious dessert.
If there are two things that remind me of my childhood it is crêpes (or pancakes) and milktart. Whenever it rained we had this tradition of making crêpes. It didn’t matter what time of day it was, but as soon as we heard the thunder or it started drizzling my sister and I would immediately start whipping up a batch. It really is one of my fondest memories of my childhood.
Milktart was another thing that has warm, cinnamony spot in my heart. My mom most definitely makes the best milktart and that woman can whip up a milktart in no time. Whenever we had people over, or had to go to someones house she would quickly, honestly it felt like magic sometimes, whip up a milktart. And it was always out of this world delicious.
So when Stork asked me to create a twist on a traditional South African dessert, I didn’t have to think twice. I loved the idea of combining the two things that were truly South African to me and I knew would be absolutely delicious together.
So here we are guys, my friggen scrumptiously out of this world beautiful Milktart Crêpe Cake! I added a little Stork to both the filling and crêpes because I knew it would take my dessert to this next level and make sure it came out perfectly. And man was I right (even if I may say so myself).
Valentines day is around the corner and I’m all about all things pink and heart shaped right now! These Gluten-free mini chocolate heart cakes are the perfect date night or galentines treat. They are whipped up in under 20 minutes using the Kitchen Inspire Silicone Heart Moulds, and no, we won’t judge you if you want to eat the entire batch by yourself. You do you girl!
I was trying to think of something to make for valentines day that would be decadent, delicious and pretty but not over the top. I’ve been wanting to make something using my Kitchen Inspire heart shaped silicone mould for forever so the second I picked it up I knew exactly what I wanted to make. Their moulds are so pretty but honestly just so incredibly easy to use. Nothing sticks to them and I was able to pop out these heart cakes in no time.
To make these Gluten-free mini chocolate heart cakes I used gluten-free cake flour and it worked perfectly. The cakes are light and fluffy but not too sweet, and with the addition of that darn delicious frosting it was absolutely perfect. Trust me, you’ll want to you keep the entire batch for yourself.
I didn’t stop at the frosting, I obviously drenched them in dark chocolate. I mean, is there any other way to do Valentines Day?
This step is really totally up to you, but I loved the extra moisture and decadence that the melted dark chocolate adds. But give both options a go and see which one you prefer (any excuse to eat more cake right?).
When you need a decadent yet easy dessert this Easy Chocolate Ganache Tart will become your ultimate go-to recipe. Made with dark chocolate, Stork Bake and topped with fresh berries.
Pretty much all I need in life is chocolate! I’m a happy girl with any form of chocolate. So when Stork asked me to whip up a few recipes, I knew that chocolate had to be involved.
I generally like to keep my desserts fairly simple, yet decadent. I think often people are so afraid of making dessert because it always appears to be this overwhelming and overcomplicated task. It really shouldn’t be, because let’s be real we want to get to the eating part and spend less time in the kitchen. So for this Easy Chocolate Ganache Tart I made no exception. I kept it simple but I promise it will still wow anyone that digs into a slice (or three).
Okay so let’s start with the crust. You’ve got two options here. Option one is to go for a more traditional tart crust (as in the recipe) which will obvs be heavenly, option two is the lazy (yet yummy) version. This involves crushing your favourite biscuit, I like the texture of digestive biscuits, melting a little Stork Bake and mixing that together. How is that guys? Then comes the good stuff. CHOCOLATE!! Jip, we’re gonna melt a whole lotta chocolate, pour hot cream over it, add stork bake, maybe a little vanilla and BAM! Chocolate ganache heaven! Pour that over your chilled crust, top it with all of the berries and let it chill in the fridge for a few hours (if you can hold out that long).

If you ask any of my close friends or family what my go-to dessert is. The answer will always be Panna Cotta! I can’t get enough of this soft, delicate dessert that honestly sounds a whole lot fancier than it actually is.
It has in some way become my sort of signature dish. I make it for every occasion, birthdays, Christmas, New Years…. you get the point!
So when I teamed up with Granny Goose to make a few delicious R&R recipes I knew I had to make a Panna Cotta. With its creamy delicate texture and soft flavours it’s my ultimate moment of calm dessert. I mixed it up a little and infused the cream with lavender to really take your relaxation to the next level! You’ll thank me later I promise!
