I met Armand Aucamp from “Armand Kook Kaal” while helping him in the kitchen at the Stellenbosch Woordfees. We made some fabulous Banting and Keto recipes from his recipe book NUDE for the tasting kitchen at the festival.
This tall, dark and handsome man had me in his pocket after the first day! He is warm, kind, with his feet firmly on the ground and his generosity reflected in the food he makes. This recipe was inspired by his “French Toast with Brinjal” (read more about his book in the COOK & BOOK section of this blog).
You can get the crumpet/flapjack recipe from my recipes on this blog.
Chocolate cream cheese:
250g cream cheese
5ml vanilla extract
a pinch of cinnamon
50g chocolate, finely chopped
a handful of nuts, roasted and roughly chopped
Add the cream cheese to a small mixing bowl and beat it with a spatula until it becomes creamy and soft.
Add the rest of the ingredients and fold through.
Spoon onto the crumpets and serve warm.
