We love an unexpected flavour combination and have developed these recipes to add a little spice to our collection of dessert recipes.
Our friends at Gewürzhaus are determined to add a little spice to our lives. From lovingly milled single spices, to combinations that are ready to be used in everything from your weekly Bolognese to your favourite dessert, they will become your new best friend in the kitchen.
Our love affair with this local brand is such that we’ve been finding ourselves adding their spice blends to some of our favourite desserts to make them even better than we ever imagined.
Here are some of our favourite recipes from the NEFF Kitchen using Gewürzhaus spice blends:
Spiced Red Velvet Cupcakes
Who doesn’t love a red velvet cupcake? The warming red colour disguising the chocolatey cake is a winner on its own, but top it with a swirl of cream cheese frosting and it’s no surprise it’s a top seller in bakeries across the country. Our twist on the classic recipe uses the Gewürzhaus Mayan Chilli Chocolate spice to add some subtle heat to the mix. The mix of chilli and chocolate is a combination that the Mayans perfected thousands of years ago and while red velvet cupcakes were invented a little bit more recently, they’re definitely richer for discovering the power of this pairing.
Christmas Fruit Mince Trifle with Gingerbread Stars
Okay, we know what you’re thinking. This recipe is for Christmas, right? Well it’s true that these are traditionally festive flavours, we think that this dessert is too good to have just once a year. The warming Gewürzhaus Gingerbread Spice Blend makes it easy to get the perfect mixture of heat and warmth in your gingerbread.
Gingerbread Layer Cake
While we’re on the topic of the Gewürzhaus Gingerbread Spice blend, please don’t feel restricted to just creating gingerbread men and gingerbread houses. This layer cake is an elegant take on festive flavours and perfectly suits winter celebrations. Layered with a brandy custard, this truly is one of the most adult cakes you’ll find.
Triple Chocolate Cookie Slice
What’s better than chocolate? Triple chocolate! This slice will make you rethink making your tried and tested chocolate chip cookies again, because its blend of white, milk and dark chocolate is a delicious step above. The Gewürzhaus Chocolate Spice blend used in this recipe uses double Dutch cocoa blended with spices like cassia, clove, ginger and nutmeg to add a unique depth of flavour to your recipes. You can substitute it with regular cocoa in your baking or use a blend to soften the taste.
Raspberry and Chocolate Crumble Spice
This recipe is always a winner at morning teas and bake sales. If it wasn’t enough to combine sweet raspberries and a smooth and tangy cream cheese filling, the chocolate base is rounded out with a few teaspoons of Gewürzhaus Chocolate Spice. It really does tick all the boxes!
