My Recipes
Smoky Chocolate & Bran Muffins recipe is up on the blog! :D Link in bio. This recipe has been brewing in my mind for about a year now - seriously. These Smoky Chocolate & Bran Muffins are super moist, soft and deeeeply flavourful! Buttermilk, molasses bran muffins with a dark chocolate & cream cheese custard-like center, a generous drizzle of @cocoafair dark chocolate ganache and a hint of smoked paprika. SO GOOD!! I’ve experimented with heaps of different muffins, but my favourite to date is still the Philosophy of Yum take on the Pumpkin & Cream Cheese muffin. What’s so rad about this muffin is that it has a cream cheese custard-like filling that is just divine! I've wanted to create a muffin recipe with the same concept except that it should have a CHOCOLATY cream cheese custard-like filling. What’s so amazing about combining chocolate & bran in muffins is the depth of flavour you achieve. They seriously compliment each other SO WELL! #muffins #chocolatemuffins #healthymuffins #nomnomnomnom #philosophyofyum
Sometimes a crazy idea pops up and just doesn't let go. Smoky Chocolate & Bran Muffins are a perfect example of this! A super moist, molasses & buttermilk bran muffin with a baked chocolate custard center. Drizzled with @cocoafair dark chocolate ganache. Sprinkled lightly with smoked paprika - which is not spicy at all, but just beautifully smokey 😁😁 guys, it tastes AMAAAAZING!! They will be available for order in my local home bakery soon, but I'll also put the recipe on my blog in the near future. Have a beautiful Thursday! 😊😊#baking #philosophyofyum #homebakery #homebaker #foodie #rustic #purist #bake #homebaked #authentic #foodphotography #bake #whatibakedtoday #fortheloveofbaking #instabake #homebaking #lovetobake #ilovebaking #uniquesweets #bakedfromscratch #thebakefeed #sweeeeets #eeeeeeats #huffposttaste #buzzfeedfood #bakersofinstagram #instabaking #feedfeed #thefeedfeed #muffins

The frosting recipe that is SERIOUSLY responsible for at least 50% of my Home Bakery's success, is now up on my blog (link in bio) 😊😊 it's the yummiest frosting on the planet... All my clients go gaga for it! Here's a little fun fact: it HAPPENS to contain 75% less sugar and 50% less fat! 😮😮 so what does it contain instead?? FLAVOUR, my friend, FLAAAVOOOUUUURRRR!! #baking #philosophyofyum #homebakery #homebaker #foodie #rustic #purist #bake #homebaked #authentic #foodphotography #bake #whatibakedtoday #fortheloveofbaking #instabake #homebaking #lovetobake #ilovebaking #bakedfromscratch #thebakefeed #sweeeeets #eeeeeeats #huffposttaste #buzzfeedfood #bakersofinstagram #instabaking #feedfeed #thefeedfeed #mywilliamssonoma

Baked Vanilla #Cheesecake with berry compote is definitely the favourite of this summer so far! Although this pic totally explains why, here's a break down just for fun ;) all butter pastry with decadent, dense, smooth baked cheesecake filling, a thin layer of white chocolate and a sharp, zesty berry compote on top... INCREDIBLY YUMMM!! #baking #philosophyofyum #homebakery #homebaker #foodie #dessert #cake #rustic #purist #bake #homebaked #authentic #flavor #foodphotography #CapeTown #bake #yum #homemade #artisan #yummy #whatibakedtoday #fortheloveofbaking #instabake #homebaking #lovetobake #ilovebaking #lovebaking #bestcheesecake #thefeedfeed
