Halo,

I am really interested what kind of desserts you prepare in NZ. My kids always look for something new and I try to invent every time something special for them but sometimes I am simply lost without any idea.

Thank you for the recipe J1. We do not have it in Poland. I will keep it in my "cooking book". We have carrot cake in my country, which may be similar regarding its taste - I will post the recipe for that within few days in "Just cake" topic.

Desserts I would serve would be Apple Crumble or freeform fruit pie with vanilla yoghurt.
Another favourite in summer would be Balsamic strawberries and yoghurt or a fresh seasonal fruit salad.

A special occasion I would make a lemon tart or a baked cheesecake

Flora, Aloo Tikka is a savoury spicy snack, not a dessert. I suspect that this poster is actually spamming the forum and I doubt you will get a reply.

Hi Flora, you say "We do not have it in Poland." Do you mean steamed puddings or do you just mean that particular carrot steamed pudding recipe I gave?

You're right Flora when you say "We have carrot cake in my country, which may be similar regarding its taste". We have carrot cake here too - it's often sold in cafes because so many people like it. Yes, the carrot steamed pudding is a similar flavour.

My mum made this dessert back in the 70's for her very trendy dinner parties. I make it still.

1kg Lemon Yoghurt (in the 70's it was passionfruit as they didn't make lemon in those days) gently mixed with roughly 300-400ml whipped loose cream. Just enough cream to make it kind of cheesecaky without losing the bite of the lemon. Add the cream to the yoghurt bit by bit until it's just right.
Add zest of two large or three small lemons (again adding to the mix until your desired tartness achieved) (reserving an amount for garnish).
Layer into small bows with whole gingernuts between layers (large crème brulee type ramekins are best). 3 gingernuts per bowl/ramekin. Start and finish with the yoghurt mix so all gingernuts are surrounded with mix to help them soften.
Top with a little zest to garnish.
Make 24 hours before serving and refrigerate to ensure gingernuts have softened.

A really nice individual tarty cheesecaky dish. Don't serve with anything else.

Our favourite dessert in Auckland NZ is apple crumble or apple and berry crumble.

Its super easy and I never use a recipe.

Basically I mix soft butter, sugar and flour and look in my pantry for other things to add. Sometimes oats, coconut, allspice, nutmeg, vanilla, grated rind off lemons, limes or oranges, chocolate chips, almond meal, even cereals.

Delicious with homemade custard or vanilla ice cream.

A recent favourite with the adults is Kohu Rd chocolate ice cream - rich, dark chocolate and not too sweet - mmmmmmm

Hi Flora,

I do have this recipe that I created using balsamic berries on top of a baked pancake - it could be a dessert or equally a brunch idea. Really delicious - pic attached

Baked pancakes with balsamic berries

Prep time
10 mins
Cook time
30 mins
Total time
40 mins

Serves: 2
What you need
Batter
2 eggs
½ cup milk
½ cup flour
pinch salt
1 Tbs butter

Balsamic berries
1 punnet, strawberries, quartered
1 punnet blueberries
2 Tbs balsamic vinegar
1- 2 Tbs white sugar

How to make
Pancake
Preheat oven to 180C.
Lightly whisk eggs and milk together.
Add sifted flour and salt and whisk to combine and remove the lumps. (Do not over mix as your pancakes will be rubbery – if in doubt under whisk! and leave the lumps)
In a 24cm oven proof dish, cast iron frypan or cake tin, add butter and place dish in the oven to let the butter melt and bubble. A few minutes is fine.
Add batter to dish and cook pancake for 20 – 30 minutes until the sides start to puff up and the pancake looks golden.
Topping
In a bowl add strawberries and blueberries, sugar and balsamic vinegar. Mix to coat. Leave to infuse for at least 10 minutes.
Assembly
Pile berries in the middle of the pancake, and serve with runny cream, creme fraiche or greek yoghurt.

The urchins asked for this today, we call it Plum Yum Yum, but we made it with feijoas instead, as the tree has been very generous.

8-10 plums, halved and pitted or we used 12 feijoas, cut in half and one good scoop out of each half (the urchins ate the rest of the feijoa)
115gm butter softened
1 cup (200 grams) sugar plus extra for topping (see below)
2 eggs
1 teaspoon (5mls)vanilla essence
1 cup (125 grams) all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon (5 grams) baking powder
1 teaspoon cinnamon powder (or ginger for the feijoa)

1 to 1&1/2 Tablespoon Sugar (depending on sweetness of plums / feijoas) for the top.
1 teaspoon cinnamon (extra)

Pre heat oven to 180°C.
Cream butter and 1 cup sugar together until light and fluffy.
Add the eggs, one at a time and scraping down the bowl,
Add in the dry ingredients including the spice, mixing until just combined.
Spoon batter into an 20-23 cm springform tin and smooth the top with the back of the spoon.
Arrange the plums, skin side up, all over the batter, covering it, or if using feijoas, put the largest part of the scoop side down. T(hey look like little temples all over the batter)
Mix the extra cinnamon,(ginger) with the remaining sugar, and sprinkle all over the top.

Bake until cake is golden, about 40 - 45 minutes until a skewer comes out clean.
Cool on rack.

This pie/torte/cake tastes much better the next day, so I make 2. One to enjoy straight away, and one to enjoy the next night (and it uses up about 20 plums / feijoas in the process)

Raspberry Hedgehogs. This is the dessert which I prepare rather often and maybe even more often than the others (as Ruth is saying - urchins ask for it  smiling smiley ) Fresh and sun-smelling raspberries arranged on a sweet chocolate mousse looked like colourful hedgehogs. I don't know if this dish will remind everyone of hedgehogs, but the dessert will for sure be tasty for everybody.

Ingredients (for 5 people)
1 pack of chilled French pastry
200g of raspberries
200ml of 30% sweet cream
200g of mascarpone cheese
100g of dark chocolate
2 tablespoons of milk
peppermint leaves

The recipe is here
