“Absolutely delicious!!!” Those were the first words that popped into my mind after having my first bite of this creation! My eyes widened and my heart raced as I savored the flavors of my coconut crepes with passion fruit curd. I pushed my camera aside and sat on the floor and just finished the first crepe before I got up to get some tea and eat some more. That morning, I had woken up with a severe Kraving for something sweet after enjoying lots of nyama-choma the past weekend. I just wanted something sweet so my mind went to work. I remembered taste a lemon curd I had at my friend’s place and I decided to make one but with passion fruit. To make my breakfast even more delicious, I decided to make crepes and add some desiccated coconut which I have lately been loving as an ingredient of late.Also, I am more of a crepe girl than a pancake girl :)). Have you ever made something for the very first time from the top of your head and shocked yourself with the amazing outcome? This was one of those days for me! I am sooooo excited to share this recipe with you, since you too can make this masterpiece and experience fantastic flavor with ingredients that are readily available to you.
I love the freshness of new years. Of new days. Of newly born babies. Of new everything! The smell of new is drenched in hope, possibility and optimism. There is an abundance of positive energy at the wake of this infant year. Can you feel it? I sure am channeling it and making the most of it now. So far, this year is my best yet! I read this article yesterday at 7 a.m, and the author stated something that is actually true. Each year, people start with so much enthusiasm but end up being predictable and playing small; just as they have in all past years. I have sought to make this year BIG. No special resolutions, just deliberate action towards my dreams. You should too! Will you join me in conquering the world ? :))
Today’s recipe was what I was meant to make on the day I made these pancakes. I had the concept for amarula crepes, but I did not have creme liqueur or strawberries and felt too lazy to go get some. After the holidays and with all the guests gone, plenty of alcohol is usually still sitting around. I then remembered this recipe and decided to bring it to life. My amarula pancakes and macerated strawberries are the very definition of perfect. Read on to know what a proper grown up brunch should look and taste like #NOM
What better way to be woken up than to the sweet aroma of something delicious cooking!? And nothing won’t ever get me out of bed faster than the aroma of something good cooking. I like giving myself a break from always being the one cooking. Luckily in our home everyone likes cooking. So in the morning, I like treating myself to the delicious things my mummy and sisters make for us.
My elder sister Sieva likes making crepes for breakfast. My eldest sister, Cheredi, once added freshly grated coconut to hers sometime back and they were great. I decided to add my own twist to the same and in the process made what the gods would eat for breakfast. This was that good! I was abit anxious about how it would turn out but was pleased when it came out great. Want to start your day on the right foot? This is how :))
