Happy Friday you alls! I have been terribly busy lately, with office work piling and back in my kitchen orders have been catching up as well. I'm okay, more structured this year, but yes, busy! I haven't had time to try Rose's Classic White Cake again, even though hubs has been asking where the cuppies that I made disappeared to??!! Haha, of course into the children's tummies!
I made this on Sunday....a super easy dessert that is delicious and healthy. I got the dried cranberries and apricots from this guy who sells produce from Iran at my weekly Saturday Pasar Tani....
Ingredients - Recipe was adapted from Australia's Delicious Magazine March 2012 issue
250g dried apricots
50g dried cranberries
200 ml orange juice, I squeezed from 2 oranges
3 tbsp honey
200g Greek yoghurt
50g chopped salted pistachios
Cut apricot into halves, boil on medium heat along with cranberries in orange juice, until soft. Turn off heat, add honey, stir and set aside to cool.
Divide half of the portion with the juice equally among pots or dessert bowls. Spread 2 tablespoons of yoghurt on top of the mix, divide the remaining mix and top off with yoghurt and sprinkle with pistachios. Allow to cool in the fridge for a few hours, and serve!
Hubs didn't like it as he is averse to apricots, but we all loved this dessert...so, enjoy!
