Caramel apple tart – apple slices nestled on cake batter; baked and then smothered in a creamy syrup – might well be one of South Africa's most popular apple tart recipes. It is delicious served hot or cold, and with or without custard or vanilla ice-cream.
Custard dumplings, while not as famous as traditional South African Souskluitjies (dumplings), are delicious (especially on a cold rainy day) and easy to make. The only downside we can think of is the fact that they disappear very, very quickly. It is the sort of dish that makes you watch your fellow table-mates very closely.
Peppermint Crisp Balls are truffles, or chocolate balls, made from South African Peppermint Crisp bars. These wicked balls will get you out of trouble when you have to deal with a desperate craving for Peppermint Crisp Tart, but just do not have time (or the inclination) to build the full-blown traditional tart layer by layer. If you don’t like lots of cream, Peppermint Crisp Balls might even be a better option.
