I’ve been doing so much baking during the last few months, probably more than I have all of last year!
I have never tried making a cheesecake – let alone a baked one! Finally, I decided to take out the recipe I saved years ago and whipped it up!
At one point I thought it would be a complete flop! While baking, the tin started leaking water. Luckily I had a tray underneath. I looked it up on the internet and it turns out that’s completely normal for a cheesecake!
I was still nervous but once it set, it looked good and tasted amazing!
Although we can’t spend our weekends with friends and family, I still look forward to the weekends. Weekdays are hectic, while the weekends are now fully for relaxation. Sunday Tea time is something to look forward to and we usually bake something sweet. But this week I’m doing something savoury.
I haven’t had a quiche in ages and have really been craving a slice! I decided to make this simple Rosemary Chicken and Mushroom quiche recipe and it turned out so delicious.
Lockdown has really got us in the kitchen. I don’t think I’ve baked so much in all my life than I have in the last few weeks!
From breads to koeksiesters to biscuits, I’ve made my fair share.
This week I decided to make use of the big bag of dates in the pantry and decided to make some yummy biscuits for us to snack on during the day. I am obsessed with dates and absolutely love the combination of dates and nuts. Dates are a sweet treat and really satisfies that sweet or chocolate craving!
Koesisters are our usual Sunday indulgence.. only difference is that this time I made it myself from scratch!
Best part is that it turned out absolutely perfect!

Sometimes there’s confusion about koesisters. Cape Malay koesisters are different from the similar-sounding Afrikaner version, koeksister, which is a crisp and syrupy twisted or plaited doughnut and usually served ice cold.
