    3 Ingredient Banana Bread

    A recipe for 3 Ingredient Banana Bread, which uses Self Raising Flour, Condensed Milk and Bananas. The recipe is from Foodies of SA, the only modification I made was that I didn’t have self-raising flour, so I added three teaspoons of Baking Powder. The trick is to ensure that you don’t overmix the batter, as that can result in a wet bread. I have included the recipe below, and here are some pictures of how mine turned out. Enjoy Baking this 3 Ingredient Banana Bread! If you’d prefer Gluten-Free Banana Bread, try this version. 3 Ingredient Banana Bread Serves 10 INGREDIENTS 5 medium overripe bananas + 1 ripe banana to…

The moment that the…

    Rose Gold Valentines Gin Cocktails

    These Rose Gold Valentines Gin Cocktails are the perfectly pretty cocktail to mix up for your lover before you go out on a dinner date, or before dinner at home.  I made these cocktails using 5 ingredients: Strawberry Syrup, Thyme, Lemon Juice, Gin and an Egg White. Egg white might sound gross, but don’t worry, you don’t taste it all, and it gives the drink a nice pillowy smooth taste. The Ingredients in the Rose Gold Gin Cocktails I used strawberry syrup that I purchased from The Redberry Farm in George, but you could also use this version from Woolies. Wixworth Gin was my gin of choice, but really you…

    Where to Eat around Sedgefield

    Today’s blog post focuses specifically on where to eat around Sedgefield and surrounding areas. I am lucky enough to have spent a few weekends and holidays in Sedgefield over the last five years. This place has gone from being a town I had never heard of, to one of my favourite places to visit. Situated between Knysna and George, Sedgefield is a seaside village that is surrounded by lakes and sand dunes and covered in beautiful fynbos and other colourful plants. Everyone always raves about Cape Town, but I really think Knysna, Sedge and Wilderness are some of the most beautiful places you could ever visit in SA. I plan…
