Game hand pies (10 pies)

  • 1 roll Today puff pastry
  • 3kg bone meat (Venison – Springbok works very well.)
  • 500g fat
  • ¼ cup brown vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon ginger
  • 1 tablespoon fine black pepper
  • 1 tablespoon fine coriander
  • 1 tablespoon fine cloves
  • 2 L cold water

Cook until meat comes off the bone. When you need to add water make sure it is boiling water. Do not cook the meat completely dry. You need some juices to make the pie juicy.

Once meat is cooked, remove form the stove, set aside to cool but not completely. Remove all the bones and make sure to shred all the meat. Take time to take out pieces of sinew and cartilage. Set aside meat to cool completely.

Roll out the puff pastry to 5mm thickness. Press out circles. The diameter should be 15cm.

Place pie meat on the side of each circle.

Paint half the circle with a beaten egg and fold over the pie. Pinch the ends closed. The better you close it off the slimmer the chance of the pastry opening and the liquids boiling out.

Place on a prepared oven pan. You can prepare them well in advance and once completed place in the freezer or fridge until you are ready to cook them.

Before putting the pies in the oven paint with some more egg.

Bake at 180C° for 20 to 30 minutes, until well puffed and golden brown.

We Kebi Chocolate Cake

1. 3 cups cake flour
2. 1 and a half cup sugar
3. Half teaspoon salt
4. 1 heaped teaspoon bicarbonate of soda
5. 3 heaped table spoons cacao powder
6. 180 ml sunflower oil
7. 30 ml vinegar
8. 2 teaspoons vanilla essence
9. 3 cups room temperature water

Before you start on your cake batter, prepare a 2L (the pan can be any shape or size you like as long as it can take 2L of liquid) pan either by lining the sides and base or by spraying with a non-stick medium.
Preheat your oven to 170°C

Once your pan is prepared and you oven is switched on to reach the correct temperature you can start on the batter.

Mix all the dry ingredients (1.- 5.) well in a deep mixing bowl and set aside
In a separate jug mix all the liquid ingredients (6. – 9.) together and blend well with an electric hand mixer.
Once you have blended all the liquid ingredients, pour it in with the dry ingredients mixing well all the time on a slow speed.

Once your batter is ready, pour it in your pan of choice and place in the middle of your oven and bake for 20 – 30 minutes depending on the depth of the pan you chose. As a general rule, once the sides of the cake have drawn loose from the side of the pan, your cake should be ready.

Remove the cake form the oven, leave in the pan for 5-10 minutes to set and then turn out on a cooling rack. Be careful that the cake does not dry out during the cooling process.
Once the cake is cool, decorate with your favorite icing or just a velvety chocolate ganache
