IN A JAR Home Industries & Informal Markets With compliments from Huletts

Dear Home Industry Member Public holidays and long weekends mean families and friends getting together and enjoying good food and relaxing times. This gives Home Industries and morning markets a great opportunity to maximise sales. With so many pubic holidays coming up, what better time to get creative with baking, handy crafts with fun themes. In this issue we’ve got some great ideas for all the special celebrations ahead, whether it is treats for the Easter holidays or exciting suggestions for Mother’s Day in May and Father’s Day in June. We’re always looking for attractive and eye-catching ways to present homemade goods. One of the latest on-trend ideas is using jars to serve up anything from soups to salads and desserts. It could be a new way to highlight your goods that are suitable for picnics, braais on the beach, or even padkos! Customers are always on the lookout for something different at morning markets and this would certainly have the wow factor. We hope our puddings in a jar on p. 42 will get you thinking about lots more ideas. For a more elegant tea time treat our cupcakes with lime zest and roasted coconut shards on p. 40 are sure to be a popular offering. Chocolate cake is a timeless classic and always a winner however you serve it. Our guest baker, Herman Lensing, is a well known food editor and is the author of ‘Voorskoot’. We asked him to share some of his cake decorating secrets with us and I am sure you will all love the four beautiful cakes on p.10-13, which he did specially for you, dear readers. And talking of cakes, the jazzy, three layer, checkerboard cake on p. 14 is much easier to make than it looks, so why not give it a try? Birthdays are always a reason to celebrate. The Innibos festival, held every year in Nelspruit, recently celebrated its 10th birthday. Huletts helped to make this an extra special event, with Helmi du Plessis from Nelspruit creating magical boxed cakes, using Huletts’ handy boxes. Tuismark Home Industry shop in Northcliff is not quite a teenager any more. They have just celebrated their 33rd birthday! What an achievement. Their shop is always a delight to visit and their goodies are always irresistible. Inspired by the beautiful shapes and colours of the autumn leaves covering our gardens and roads, don’t miss our lovely, dainty spicy biscuits on p. 44. If your shop also offers coffee and tea to customers make sure that you include a leaf biscuit to make them feel special. Regards Mathilda Pansegrouw

Orange, almond &


Candied orange slices 500g oranges - approximately 3 oranges 15g (20ml) Huletts Castor Sugar 350ml water

slices must be soft but must still be firm and retain their shape. Remove from syrup and place in a single layer on a wire rack. Discard the syrup. ORANGE SYRUP: Place the sugar, orange juice and water in a saucepan and slowly bring to the boil. Simmer for 5-10 minutes until the syrup has slightly thickened. Set aside to cool.

ORANGE SYRUP: 210g (250ml) Huletts Castor Sugar 150ml fresh orange juice 75ml water CAKE: 210g (375ml) cake flour 1ml (Âźt) salt 100g ground almonds 10ml baking powder 280g (330ml) Huletts Castor Sugar finely grated zest of 2 oranges 60ml fresh orange juice 100ml plain yoghurt 4 extra-large eggs 5ml vanilla essence 160mI olive oil

METHOD CANDIED ORANGE SLICES: Slice the oranges into thin rounds, discarding the ends of the orange. Place the castor sugar and the water in a heavy-based pan over medium heat while stirring until the sugar has dissolved. Increase the heat and bring to the boil. Reduce the heat and add the orange slices, simmer for 15-20, turning halfway. The

CAKE: Preheat the oven to 180ÂşC. Line the base and sides of a 23cm round cake pan with non-stick baking paper. Sift the flour, baking powder and salt into a bowl, add the almonds and mix in. In a separate bowl, whisk the sugar, orange juice, zest, yoghurt, eggs and vanilla together. Gradually add the dry ingredients and whisk to form a smooth batter. Lastly fold in the oil. Pour into the pan and bake for 45-50 minutes, until the cake is golden and firm and a skewer inserted in the middle comes out clean. Pierce the top of the cake with a skewer and pour over 6 tbsp of the orange syrup, reserving the rest. Arrange the orange slices on the top of the cake, just before serving, pour the remaining syrup over.

1kg Seville-oranges 2L water 2kg Huletts White Sugar Juice of 2 lemons


Wipe the oranges and cut them in half, remove the pips and tie up in a muslin cloth. Slice the oranges into thin slivers and place in a separate muslin cloth. Place both cloth parcels in a large glass bowl and pour over water. Place a large plate over fruit to keep fruit covered. Leave overnight. The following day, place the fruit, pips, water and lemon juice in a large heavy base pot. Remove the muslin cloth from the fruit and slowly bring to the boil, continue to boil for ±1 hour or until the orange peel is soft. Remove the cloth with the pips. Turn the heat to low, add the sugar while stirring, keep stirring until sugar has dissolved. Skim off any ‘foam’ that forms on the surface. Boil for 10-15 minutes or until marmalade reaches 105ºC on a sugar thermometer. Remove from heat and leave to rest for a few minutes. Spoon the marmalade into sterilized jars and seal.      Yields ±2 x 350g jars Emjee Louw, CWAA Hantam

VOORSKOOT – 30-minute-spyskaarte vir elke seisoen

Hierdie lekkerlees-kookboek is die eerste uit die pen van Herman Lensing, geliefde kosredakteur van SARIE. Dit is ingedeel volgens die vier seisoene, met driegang-etes vir elke denkbare geleentheid. Die boek se kenmerk is die gemaklike styl waarmee Herman kook. Daar is nie tierlantyntjies nie, en geen resepte wat ure of dae neem om te kook nie. Huletts 10


Use vanilla and chocolate icing alternately. Fill a piping bag fitted with a medium-sized star shape nozzle with icing. Starting at the base of the cake ice a rose by placing the nozzle close to the base of the cake, squeezing gently and moving from the inside outwards in a circular motion until the shape resembles a rose. Continue icing the cake until it is completely covered.

Huletts 11



Using a 1 cm sharp edged nozzle, ice the bottom half of the cake with vanilla icing. Ice the top half of the cake with chocolate icing. Use a palate knife to smooth the icings. To make the spreading of the icing easier, the palate knife can be dipped in hot water and wiped before using. The two icings will flow into each other and create an ombre look. Huletts 12

TEAR DROPS Use a 1cm sharp edged nozzle and pipe a vertical row of vanilla drops. Use the back of a teaspoon to carefully flatten the point of the drops so that it resembles a teardrop. Repeat with the chocolate icing as seen in the picture to cover the sides.

CAKE WITH FRILLS Use a 2 cm diameter rose nozzle (this is a flattish nozzle) and pipe chocolate and vanilla icing alternately on the cake. To create a ruffle effect place the nozzle on its side against the cake. Whilst you are piping move the nozzle from left to right so that the icings fall on to each other and thus forming the pattern. Cover the top of the cake with chocolate and vanilla icing mixed together. Huletts 13


Easy checkerboard


1 x chocolate cake recipe 1 x vanilla cake recipe Icing of your choice, to cover the cake


Preheat the oven to 180ยบC. Grease 3 x 22cm diameter baking pans. Make the chocolate and vanilla batters. Fill two large icing bags, fitted with plain large nozzles with the two batters. Start with the chocolate batter and pipe a circle around the outer edge of the pan. Use the vanilla batter and pipe a second circle right next to and on the inside of the chocolate circle. Repeat the process once more ending with a chocolate circle. Do the same with pan number

two. For pan number three start with the vanilla batter first and end with a small vanilla circle in the middle. Bake cakes as per recipe. Stack cake layers as shown in the picture, alternating with chocolate and vanilla cakes. Use filling of your choice. Makes 1 large cake

and pecan cake Snowflake is a true South African icon and its heritage dates back to 1882. New methods of refining wheat make Snowflake Cake Wheat Flour whiter and finer, ensuring that one of South Africa’s elite flour brands will continue to appear in kitchens across the nation for generations to come. INGREDIENTS

200g butter, softened 200g (250ml) Huletts SunSweet Brown Sugar 4 extra-large eggs 210g (375ml) Snowflake Cake Wheat Flour 7,5ml Snowflake Baking Powder 100g pecans, finely chopped 60ml espresso or strong black coffee 50g dark chocolate, melted 100ml sour cream 2,5ml vanilla extract 2,5ml ground cinnamon FOR THE FROSTING 100g butter, softened 200g cream cheese 210g (400ml) Huletts Icing Sugar 5ml espresso powder Extra, 20 to 25 whole pecans, to decorate


Preheat the oven to 180°C. Whisk the butter and sugar in a large bowl until light, pale and creamy. Gradually beat in the eggs, mixing well after each addition; don’t worry if it curdles. Sift in the flour and

baking powder and gently fold through. Add the pecans, chocolate, sour cream, vanilla and cinnamon. Mix well then pour into a prepared pan (greased and bottom lined with baking paper), smooth the top and bake for 50 minutes or until a skewer inserted into the centre comes out clean. Once cool enough to handle, remove the cake from the pan to cool on a wire rack. Cut in half horizontally, so you have 2 layers. TO MAKE THE FROSTING: Cream the butter and cream cheese together using an electric whisk until well combined and light. Beat in the icing sugar and espresso. Use half as a filling. Spread the rest over the top of the cake and smooth with a palette knife. Decorate with the pecans.

Ingredients Biscuit base 75g butter 300g chocolate oat biscuits Toffee filling 115g butter 115g (160ml) Huletts Treacle Sugar 1 x 397g can sweetened condensed milk TOPPING: 50mI fresh cream 5 ripe but firm medium bananas 5ml lemon juice 25g plain dark chocolate, coarsely grated, or chocolate curls


To make the crust: Melt the butter in a small pan. Break the biscuits into chunky pieces and blitz them to crumbs in a food processor. Tip the crumbs into a bowl and stir in the melted butter. Tip the mixture into the centre of a 23cm round x 4cm deep loose based tart pan and press it firmly into the base and up the sides. Make sure the mix is evenly distributed, especially where the base meets the sides. Chill for 30 minutes until set. TO MAKE THE FILLING: Melt the butter in a pan and stir in the

sugar. Cook over a low heat, stirring constantly, until the sugar has dissolved. Add the condensed milk and bring to a gentle simmer, stirring constantly. Cook for 3 minutes, stirring, until the mixture turns a deep, creamy caramel brown. Pour the toffee gently onto the biscuit base and quickly smooth over the surface. Leave to chill for at least 1 hour (up to 8 hours) before topping. Remove from the pan (this is easier if left at room temperature briefly). Just before serving, lightly whip the cream. It should stand in very soft peaks (any thicker and it will look over-whipped when mixed with the bananas). Diagonally slice 4 bananas and scatter half over the toffee. Fold the rest lightly into the cream and spoon gently on top. Slice the remaining banana and put it in a bowl with the lemon juice. Toss very gently this will stop the banana turning brown. Decorate the top with the lemony banana slices, poking them into the cream randomly and then sprinkle on the grated chocolate.
