Adelaide Eats: Aviary Dessert Kitchen Revisited

After my last visit here, I knew I had to bring Jie to try the Matcha Latte because it’s her absolute favourite! So we braved the wind and rain (ok we cheated, we had a car. Hee) and came here for tea on her second last day. On top of 2 Matcha Lattes and 1 hot chocolate, these were the other yummy delights we tried for the day! :)

Panna Cotta (With Maltesers) $8.50

Cherry Ripe Cheesecake $10.50

Hazelnut Macaron Flower Pot $10.50

Im slowly working my way through their menu and I must say that I have yet to be disappointed :) And Im so glad Jie really loved her experience here even though she isnt such a huge dessert person like I am! Everything is so good though there are definitely a few favourites already. If you havent made a trip down yet, you’re missing out!! :)

Adelaide Eats: Jah’z Lounge

Located at a really obscure part of Rundle street (okay not really, but you just wont see it if you werent looking for it), Jah’z Lounge offers good food at affordable prices and a lovely ambiance.. Came here for a girl’s night out with Aakriti, Lara and my sister and we had a really good time just chatting and chilling. Food didnt take too long to come either and service was great without being too intrusive or aloof. The manager even gave us advice on what to order and how ‘well’ the meat was to be cooked etc.

Butternut Pumpkin Risotto with leek, feta, roasted walnuts and rocket $15.90 (Entree)

Linguine with Fresh King Prawns, Squid and Market Fish pieces, cooked with garlic, chilli and parsley in an olive oil emulsion sauce $16.90 (Entree)

Pan seared Kangaroo Fillet marinated in 5 spice with crispy parsnip chips, wilted silver bee, cheery scented jus $23.90

This place is worth a try especially if you have just finished watching a movie at East End or just before drinks at The Elephant! :)

Adelaide Eats: Chocola Tree

Best way to end a Saturday night after a 21st birthday party of a good friend? A lovely surprise of chocolates from Chocola Tree delivered to the doorstep and Hot Chocolate from Chocolate Bean. Sugar overdose much? I like :) Topped off with good news from Jie back home. I am so happy for you love! You deserve every bit of happiness xx Im going to sleep a very happy and contented girl. Who cares about the stiff and achy wrist/knee/ankle joints. I’ll worry about you tomorrow. Meanwhile I’ll just OD on NSAIDs and some yummy chocs :D

Recipe: Eggless Peanut Butter and Jelly Cupcakes

I should really start making sure I have all the ingredients before I start baking something because then I wont panic last minute after realising that an important ingredient is missing and then having to modify the whole recipe. Rahhhh :X This time, I didnt have eggs or heavy cream so I made a couple of changes here and there :) Hope you all still enjoyed it!

Ingredients for cupcakes:

2 cups all-purpose flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
3 tablespoons butter, softened
2 tablespoons creamy peanut butter
2/3 cup packed brown sugar
1/2 cup applesauce
1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1 cup milk
12 teaspoons strawberry jam

Ingredients for peanut butter glaze:

1/2 cup milk with 1 tsp of vinegar
1/2 cup of icing sugar
1/2 cup packed brown sugar
6 tablespoons creamy peanut butter
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract

  • Preheat oven to 170 degrees
  • In a mixing bowl, sift together flour, baking powder and salt.
  • In a large mixing bowl, using a mixer on medium speed, beat together butter, peanut butter and brown sugar, until creamy. Beat in applesauce and vanilla until combined; reduce mixer speed to low and beat in flour mixture until just combined, alternating with milk.
  • Divide about 1/3 of the batter into muffin tin. Place a teaspoon of jam into the center of each cup; evenly top with remaining cake batter. Bake for 17-20 minutes or until well risen and golden. Cool completely on wire racks.
  • To make the peanut butter glaze, whisk together heavy cream and brown sugar, in a small saucepan, over medium heat, and bring to a simmer; remove pan from heat and whisk in peanut butter until combined. Cool mixture for a few minutes until a good consistency is reached to dip the cupcakes in. Dip cupcakes into peanut butter glaze and allow to dry.
