Fast Chutney Pizza

I'm a little bit addicted to this fast and delicious lunch or dinner idea. All you need is a piece of wrap or flat bread or any bread of your choice really, chutney and cheese.

Quick lunch idea, pizza with flat bread and Ugly Duck Preserves chutney.


wrap or flat bread

Ugly Duck Preserves Persimmon Chutney

grated cheese

fresh herbs like thyme and oregano


Take your wrap and spread chutney all over it.

Sprinkle cheese on top of your chutney and grill your super fast chutney pizza till the cheese has melted. Sprinkle with fresh herbs.


Linzer Torte Recipe

It's been month since I found some spare time on a weekend to bake something. Yesterday it finally happened, I made Linzer Torte. A delicious, crubly, no-frills treat that is not too sweet. Of course it's a cake with jam. Best to use a fruit spread that's on the tart side. I used my Jaboticaba paste, which worked really well but I could also see this cake with Plum Cinnamon fruit spread or Youngberry jam.

Linzer Torte made with Ugly Duck Preserves Jaboticaba paste

Here the recipe:

100g Almonds

185g Flour

1/2 tsp Cinnamon

90g cold Butter

60g Sugar

2 Egg Yolks 

Jam to cover the cake surface

1. Blitz your almonds into fine pieces. Add flour, sugar, cinnamon and mix. Add eggs. Add butter in small pieces till dough comes together nicely. Use a little more or less butter depending on the structure of your dough.

2. Wrap dough in foil and chill in the fridge for at least 20 minutes.

3. Preheat oven to 180 C degrees.

4. Roll out dough, spread jam evenly over the top. Cut dough strips from left over dough and arrange in a criss cross pattern on top of the jam.

5. Bake for 25-30 minutes or till cake is done.
