VEGAN CHOCOLATE WALNUT CAKE

VEGAN CHOCOLATE WALNUT CAKE

I made this for my friend’s birthday. This was my first attempt at a vegan cake. I’m not going lie… it was AMAZING. I couldn’t believe how good this cake turned out. It was soft and dense and super chocolaty. My secret ingredient was crushed […]

BEE STING PIZZA

BEE STING PIZZA

I love the taste of a bee sting pizza. It has the spiciness from the Calabrian chilis, the sweetness from the honey, and the salty bite of the olives. I like using soppressata with this as it compliments the rest of the ingredients. I’ve also […]

PIZZA DOUGH

PIZZA DOUGH

There are many ways to make pizza dough. For this dough I use the help of my stand mixer and oven that has a proof function which basically means it’s set to 100°F. The dough is crispy on the outside and soft in the middle. […]

NUT & SEED CRACKERS

NUT & SEED CRACKERS

I saw these at a Danish bakery in London and thought what a great idea for a low carb cracker. It’s filled with nuts and seeds and held together by eggs. I used the biscotti method for baking it which is twice baked. This makes […]

ALMOND CHERRY COOKIE BARS

ALMOND CHERRY COOKIE BARS

This recipe came about because I had almond butter and cherry jam and wanted to make a dessert. These are sweet and chewy and the almond butter gives it a nice almond flavour. Definitely great for a weeknight treat.

HEMP SEED PARMESAN

HEMP SEED PARMESAN

So first thing – there is no parmesan cheese in this. This is a cheese alternative so to speak. You’ve probably heard of vegan parmesan which is essentially a dairy-free replacement for parmesan cheese. Usually its a mix of cashews and nutritional yeast. I, however […]

ALMOND RICOTTA COOKIES

ALMOND RICOTTA COOKIES

My Limoncello cookies are so good. They are something between a cake and cookies thanks to the yogurt in them. I wanted to try this cookie flavoured with almonds instead of lemon and they were perfect. I changed up a few of the ingredients. I […]

DATE & WALNUT OAT BARS

DATE & WALNUT OAT BARS

This recipe happened when I was doing one of my pantry purges. I had no flour (like most people when we were in locked down) but had lots of oats. I first tried these as cookies but they bake better as bars. The secret ingredient […]

FIG & WALNUT PALMIERS

FIG & WALNUT PALMIERS

Figs and walnuts are one of my favourite combinations. Whether I make a cake or just pop a fig and walnut in my mouth at the same time, the flavor combination is great. When I started making palmiers, I knew I had to try it […]

COCONUT PINEAPPLE UPSIDE DOWN CAKE

COCONUT PINEAPPLE UPSIDE DOWN CAKE

I have been making this cake for years. I have taken a retro dessert and turned it up a notch with coconut and extra pineapple. It’s also easy to make as you are not making the cake from scratch. I like to make this in […]
