Apple, Cucumber, Green Pepper Salad, with Cilantro
This salad is easy to rustle up, requires no special ingredients or equipment and is a delight to eat any time of day or year – fresh, sweet, crunch, herby, tart, sour, spicy all make an appearance in the combination of apples, pickled cucumbers, green peppers – bell or jalapenos and my all-time favourite cilantro.

Spiced Apple Sauce
This is an update on a 2012 post:). Still relevant though! Out with the old, in with the new. Ditch the cinnamon sticks and sweet fragrance of warm spice. Replace it with heat and heart. Crisscross apple sauce….you’ll have no regrets. I love apples. The firmness and smoothness of their ’rounds’, the crispness that accompanies […] The post Spiced Apple Sauce appeared first on Kitchen Butterfly.

Double Chocolate ‘Oven’ Cake
Years ago, I turned some leftover pancake batter into a skillet bake that still wows me its randomness and deliciousness. I called it a double chocolate oven cake. And served it with some delightful lemon posset. What does it taste like? Look like? Crunch and cream is how I like to describe it: ‘It bakes […]

A Lemony List – 40 Things to do with Lemons
I don’t use lemon and lime interchangeably, no sir. They have such different profiles and I like to keep each special. For instance, I haven’t yet met a lemon and mango combo that I like. Lime and mango, however? Take me home, baby! Sometimes I think I love both of them equally and then lemons […]

Lemon Curd 3.0
Yes, we’re on take 3 of lemon curd. Take 1 was making it in a bain marie, standing up and whisking endlessly till the curd formed Take 2 was Engeline’s lesson – put all the ingredients together and whisk slowly. Take 3? The ‘reverse creaming’ method is what I like to call it from Fine […]

Lemon Skillet Cake with Almonds
A simple to make and delicious cake in the manner of pound cake but following a recipe the landlady at our Airbnb in Rome gave us, 10 years ago. It was soooooo good and it has become a firm favourite in our home. What I like is you can vary the flavours and the type […]

Lemon puree
For me, the best lemon puree starts with the best lemons – and I defer to organic, unwaxed lemons. I’ll share some steps to take if you have lemons that are waxed, not organic – don’t worry. One of my biggest approaches to food is exploring how much of the whole ingredient I can use […]

Crisps, pandowdies, crumbles and every combination of fruit and crust – top, bottom, crumbled, cut, laid down in rounds. I remember a friend […]

Roasted Rhubarb Limeade
An update to a 10-year old post – still valid, I hope you enjoy it too:) The prospect of S’mores fired her up intensely. From deep in her belly, she longed to stoke a fire, so its rising flames and crackling sounds could warm her and melt her ‘mallows till they softened and oozed their […]

How to make any jam glaze
Glazes bring amazing shine to bakes, from breads to fruit and bakes. While apricot jam glaze is very popular other jams and jellies work. I like to use ginger when I want a hint of spice. For berries, I use redcurrant jelly but there is a world of options. A ginger jam glaze is one […]

Akara – Made with Flour
This time with flours of convenience, be they bean, chickpea or lentils I first used these flours when I lived abroad, several moons ago and found it tricky sometimes to get black-eyed beans or didn’t want to expend the energy required to peel them. The flours work well, they approximate the deliciousness I’m familiar with […]

Bacon-Wrapped Plantains
I grew up eating plantains as an essential part of my Nigerian diet and I find it fascinating to experiment with them. I’ve tried chocolate-filled gnocchi and Plantano Frito tortillas for nouveau cuisine, and traditional Nigerian steamed pudding. And so when I read about bacon-wrapped plantains at Cynthia’s of Taste of Home, its fate was […]

Ata-Rice Yoruba Style Ofada Pepper Sauce
This is a spicy peppersauce common among Yoruba pepper. It's pretty much a combination of Ayamase and Ata Dindin. This uses lots of OYEL so please, oil police look away. You can decant the oil once the sauce is done. The secret to frying this properly is dividing up the oil so you use some [...]
