My deliciously seasoned curried cabbage is sure to turn your World around. Growing up in Zimbabwe I ate a lot of cabbage and fresh leafy vegetables with my rice or sadza. Sadza is a polenta-like dish made with white corn not sweet corn. We ate with our fingers, gently tearing off a piece of the tender cabbage and wrapping it around the sadza before engulfing it.

I’ve been making a tonne of these pancakes lately and they are ready in a jiffy. They are soft and fluffy and super crispy around the edges from the ghee they are fried in 😉 Continue reading

Hi my dear friends and fellow bloggers!
Again… it has been a tad bit too long since I wrote to you last. As I mentioned in my previous post I was working on “Project Ghee”, well I don’t think I called it that exactly … but it sure does sound good right now 🙂

Ladies and Gentlemen,
I believe I do owe you an apology for not writing as often as I should.
But … for now… I have to make up for my absence with this absolutely wonderful recipe for a super moist and dense almond chocolate cupcake topped with a creamy and decadent bittersweet chocolate ganache. If you’re like me, and just cannot wait long enough for the cake too cool down before frosting it, you’re in luck baby. This is the recipe for you! I highly recommend you give it a try. It takes a jiffy to make and bakes up in about 15 mins.
As the cake takes it’s short warm ride in the oven. You will have already whipped up the chocolate ganache to top it. And in the time it takes for the cupcakes to cool, you may pour yourself a cuppa and gaze dreamily out the window sniffing in the warm chocolaty aroma emanating throughout your serene little kitchen.
