Upside Down Mango Cake

When mangoes are in season – you make mango cake. How good are summer desserts?! Fruity and sweet, refreshing and creamy, they’re all so yummy. And we only have three months of the year to enjoy them.   This summer I’ve created an upside down mango cake. All you need is three ripe mangoes and staple baking ingredients to make this dessert – it’s a great one for entertaining too….

Strawberry & Chocolate Cheesecake

  Guys, it’s nearly spring. Therefore, you can expect some fruity desserts your way – and here’s the first – raw strawberry and chocolate cheesecake. It’s no secret chocolate goes with everything, from peanut butter (delicious) to oranges (yep!) the opportunities are endless. This recipe however, I’ve paired it with chocolate and the result is seriously delicious. The inspiration for this recipe came from This Rawsome Vegan Life who I’ve been…

Apple crumble muffins

If there’s one thing I don’t mind about winter (I’m a summer girl at heart), it’s the decadent desserts that are made through the season; chocolate puddings, hot chocolates, apple pie with custard… the list goes on. So, as soon as the weather started to take a chillier turn, there was only one thing I felt like – apple crumble. But not just any apple crumble, a smaller, for-one apple crumble….

Raw Mint Slice

Finally – a new recipe is here! I’m so sorry for the lack of new recipes lately; I have been so busy between life and launching my new eBook with Danielle Robertson, Simply Good. Which is awesome and you guys should check it out! Clean Notella donuts anyone? I was so happy when my boyfriend asked me to make this raw mint slice last week because 1. I love anything with…

Dark Chocolate and Pecan Cookies

\    A long work day, perhaps a coffee or two, and then it hits the 3pm mark and you’re craving a sugar hit – you know the feeling right?! I do too. And I usually visit Hunter’s Roots for a sweet treat. This Melbourne cafe is only a short walk from my work and Kerry and the team KNOW how to bake – without any nasties. On one of my visits…

Chocolate Peanut Butter Swirl Brownies

  Over the weekend I was craving something chocolatey (surprise, surprise) and something with peanut butter (again, another surprise). After devouring a not-so-healthy brownie after dinner with the girls during the week – which was delicious – I wanted to recreate something similar. Sometimes I love eating unhealthy desserts to give me inspiration and that’s exactly what that brownie did… These peanut butter chocolate swirl brownies are the perfect treat when…

Dadar Gulung

  Ah, Bali… there is so much to love. I just returned a few days ago from the most relaxing trip with two of my girlfriends. We were so lucky to stay at one of the best hotels in Ubud, Komaneka Bisma. Nestled in the middle of the rainforest, Komaneka feels secluded from the hustle and bustle yet is still so close to the town (although we hardly left the hotel –…

Carrot Cake with Vanilla Bean Cream

   = = As I write this I am eating the final piece of this clean carrot cake. I would also like to add that this cake lasted less than 24 hours. I would love to tell you that I gave away this cake to my friends and family… but the truth is, I definitely ate most of it. At least three quarters… By now it’s no secret that this clean…

Chocolate & Almond Gelato

  For anyone who is following me on Instagram you would know that this was ‘accidental’ gelato. This gelato was actually meant to be nougat. When I was ready to slice the ‘nougat’ my boyfriend looked at it and said ‘that’s going to melt.’ He was right. And when he dug in his teaspoon to taste it, I gave it one look and one taste to know that this recipe…

Salted Caramel Double Choc Cookie Sandwiches

I was craving something sweet but I couldn’t put my finger on it… something chocolatey… but different to what I normally make. I have two favourite people who give me true criticisms of my recipes; my dad and brother. These guys don’t muck around – they eat kit kats, cadburys – you name it. If they want to eat my treats – then I have created something worth putting on…

Nutella Drop Biscuits

A few days ago it was International Nutella Day, and it was a totally a coincidence that I felt like making Nutella a day before the special occasion. Needless to say, I was pleased I could celebrate the day in foodie style with some clean nutella drop biscuits. Nutella is extremely easy to make – you will need a processor, hazelnut meal (from The Source..  buy it here), cacao butter,…

Mini Lemon & Coconut Tarts

I just returned from a dream holiday in Bali last week and had been looking forward to creating a simple, summery treat. In Bali, it’s easy to get caught up in the hustle and bustle of things: Seminyak is the ‘happening’ city with lots of great restaurants, shopping and places to go out. But my heart was in beautiful Ubud – so quiet and peaceful – and amazing food (I stayed…
