1l of water

600g sweetened condensed milk

5 eggs

1 tbsp Vanilla Essence

1 cinnamon stick

Peanut Punch


1 tsp cinnamon powder

1 tsp nutmeg powder

500g Creamy Peanut Butter

1L Dutch Lady Full Cream Milk

1 Can Dutch Lady Condensed Milk

750 ml White Rum

1 tbsp. vanilla essence

Milk Cookies


1lb flour

½ lb brown sugar

salt (just a pinch)

1 egg

½ cup vegetable oil

1 tsp. vanilla extract (optional)

1 can full cream milk

1 tsp orange/lemon zest

1tbsp baking powder


  • In a saucepan, heat the water with the cinnamon stick.
  • In a bowl, beat the eggs into an omelet and set aside.
  • When boiling, add condensed milk and stir.
  • Add the vanilla bean split in half lengthwise and the extracted vanilla beans.
  • Lower the temperature over very low heat.
  • Stir for a few moments with a whisk.
  • While stirring, incorporate the eggs.
  • Stir the mixture in eight until thickened and a consistency close to custard (the cream should coat the spoon).
  • Get out of the fire.
  • Serve warm or hot and enjoy!


  • Combine Full Cream Milk and Peanut Butter in a blender and blend until the consistency of a smoothie is achieved.
  • Ensure that the mixture isn’t too thick, then add the rest of the ingredients and blend on high for up to a minute with the dry ingredients going in last.
  • Let rest for at-least one-two weeks to ensure that the flavor is uniform throughout the beverage.
  • Serve over ice cubes with a cinnamon stick to garnish.


  • In a large bowl sift the flour, a pinch of salt, and baking powder. Make a well in the center and add sugar, egg, lemon or orange zest. Mix with a fork.
  • Then, add oil, milk, and vanilla extract (if using). Blend with a fork.
  • Start incorporating the flour from the sides.
  • When all the flour has been incorporated, work the dough with your hands until it comes together.
  • Take pieces of dough about 50 grams each and give them an oval shape.
  • Place on the baking sheet as you go.  You can line a baking sheet with parchment paper (or use a non-stick cookie sheet, like mine).
  • After you placed all the cookies on the baking sheet, flatten them with your hand and set in the fridge for 15 minutes. In the meantime, preheat the oven to 180° C (350° F).
  • After the resting time in the fridge, brush the cookies with milk and sprinkle cane sugar on top.
