There's just something so celebratory about a semolina pudding. It's one of those Indian dishes that work wonderfully as both starter and dessert. For Eid this year, I partnered with Stork Bake to develop this semolina halva with almonds and vanilla.
I am so honoured to partner up with Stork Bake again this year to bring you my best bakes. In celebration of World Baking Day, I came up with these naartjie and vanilla cupcakes. If you don't have naartjies available, create a dried powder from the rind of your favourite sweet citrus.
My grocery stock is pretty much the metaphor for my life. The bananas are going off but there's sesame halva in the fridge and coconut blossom sugar in the cupboard. Mental state aside, at least a recipe came of it.
This is a great dessert recipe for when you're running low on exotic pantry ingredients and have good staple items on hand. It's an old favourite from Hershey's and you need just one pot to bring it all together.
