Triple Chocolate Chai Hot Cross Buns

Triple Chocolate Chai Hot Cross Buns

For many, Easter comes with many traditions. And Hot Cross Buns are as synonymous with Easter as chocolate eggs.

HOT and cross. Remember the nursery rhyme? “One a penny, two a penny. Hot cross buns.” The rhyme and the word bun always creates an inner child like excitement that conjures memories of yeast smells oozing from baking.

Flavours of Gajerala without all the work: Ultimate Carrot Cake with Cardamom Icing

Flavours of Gajerala without all the work: Ultimate Carrot Cake with Cardamom Icing

IF dessert drama (not family drama) is your goal this holiday season then Carrot Cake should be your dessert. Everyone is opinionated about this vegetal cake. There are devout haters, purists, accoutrement adders, and ones who have sadly never had a deliciously moist piece of carrot cake. Without fail, there is always a lengthy discussion whenever carrot cake is served.

Ooey Gooey Cheesy Butter Chicken Sauce Bread

Okay are you ready for this — Ooey Gooey Cheesy Butter Chicken Sauce Bread? It will kind of change your life. Probably your waistline too, but it’s the festive season, so it’s 100% worth it. BONUS: it is unbelievably drool-worthy, scrumptious, “scary good”.

I love a food mash up. The idea of throwing two good things together to make a new wonderful thing, always makes me smile. This does not disappoint.

Drunken Crown Royal Banana Bread

Drunken Crown Royal Banana Bread

Home Economics, yes the course, taught me kitchen skills. Healthy food choices, food preparation, food buying strategies and nutrition. I am certain, our class made savoury dishes, but they never stuck with me. I can’t remember any of them. Instead, my takeaways were baking fundamentals and a basic banana bread recipe.

Raita Biscuits

Raita Biscuits

I started this year off with a goal to become a better runner and train for a marathon. For me it was a metaphor about moving forward.

For a number of reasons, I felt – and feel – as if I’ve been handed a baton, like life and circumstance had given me a story and said, ‘Go. Run with it. Metamorphose.’ I needed something to believe in and I needed something to prove. I needed to be braved out of my skin.

For people like me who spend a lot of time thinking and writing, it’s imperative to have activities that provide outlets for grounding and centering. Running provided an outlet to reify negativity into something positive.
