How delicious! A tart made from yoghurt ( and several other ingredients!). Unfortuantely it got gobbled up before I could shoot it but I will post an image soon as I am bound to make it very soon again! It is so scrummy and super easy to make!
Recipe for Yoghurt tart
115g /125ml butter / margarine at room temp
200g / 250 ml sugar
3 eggs beaten
140 g / 250ml self rasing flour
450 ml milk
350ml Bulgarian yoghurt
extra butter or margarine to dot on tart before it enters the oven.
Preheat the oven to 180 C. Butter a ovenproof dish ( at least 2litres in size). Cream the butter and sugar and add eggs, mix well. Mix milk and yoghurt and add to egg mixture, mix thoroughly. Pour mixture in ovenproof dish and dot bits of butter ontop. The recipe asks for it to bake for 45 minutes but I baked mine for about an hour. It should be a nice golden brown colour on top. Can be slightly wobbly as it will set when cool. Can be served hot or cold. I ate some of this yoghurt tart hot out the oven with a sprinkling of cinnamon which was delish! (…And then a slice when it had cooled down as well - I prefer it hot but both are super yum!)
Mark,myself and my good friend Ola went to the Good Food and Wine Show at the Cape Town INternational Convention Centre last night and had such an amazing time! We started off with a Johnathan Dannias ( From Australian Masterchef) food demo. He was so sweet and sincere! Looks like a great guy!
He made a lovely Duck breast in balsamic & vanilla glaze served on a bed of rocket with caramalized pears and roasted walnuts! Looked delish! Also got a great recipe from him for Choc fondant and he did a demo on caramel sauce. (Can’t believe he made two of my faves!!! DUCK +FONDANT!)
The stands were very nicely done as always and we very much enjoyed what we called the “wine mile”. Solms Delta Sparkling Shiraz definitely stole the show for us! We had it at Christmas last year and were so pleased to get it at a great “Expo” price. :)
Other than the wines the Baking & kitchen gadget stands were also top on the list. Got some beautiful golden food glitter from Nicollettes. And some awesome Teflon baking sheets.
Obviously we had to stop for a few snacks to go with all the vino! We had plates from Bleomendal ( Chicken breast wrapped in duck prosciutto served with a Pinotage jus and a butter poached potato) which was our least favourite.
We swiftly moved on to the Blues stand which offered amazing Roast veg wrapped in thinly sliced beef. It was delish! So simple yet uber tasty!
Bistro 1682 offered amazing plates too ( Ola had the Pork Ragout!~was amazing!) and we opted for 3 plates from Five Flies : Lamb cutlet served with a aubergine “bake” , Seared scallops, Grilled salmon served on wilted spinach. They were all very tasty but my favourite stayed the Little Bundels of Beef love from Blues.
The absolute highlight for me of course my new LeCruesset Caribbean Kettle!!! So excited by this! Ola contributed as part of a housewarming gift (we are moving in a few days) and Mark the balance !! Already had coffee this morning using my new beauty!!! I have always wanted one so I am very very grateful for this!
All in all well worth it!
Have a fab weekend, mine is definitely off to a good start!
Woke up this morning with a headache which ( one myprodol later) is still lurking around. Might be because my Mac powercable gave up on life last night and now I am stressing about where / when and how I am going to fix this problem.
Anywho, headache and cables aside, I am feeling so inspired to do a soup story this weekend. Especially after spending time with Russell Smith (www.russellsmith.co.za) last week on an Autumn shoot and learning more about directional natural lighting in Food Photography.
I will be making 4 soups, two which I have made once or twice before and two which will be new to my repertoire. All of them are vegetable soups, five a day and all that you know!
So I will be heading off later to try and get cloth for this shoot. And some textured wood. And crockery.
Whatever I cant find today I will have to find on Saturday Morning as I am shooting pregnancy pics of my Sister on SAturday Afternoon ( she is due next week!!!).
Wish me luck!
