Walnut Chocolate Squares

Nuttylicious walnut chocolate square cake bars – they are nutty and very chocolaty! I actually made them last week, on the International Chocolate Day observed on the 7th of July. Okay my post is a few days late but it’s never too late to celebrate chocolate!! On Facebook I asked about your favourite chocolate treats and the answers included brownies, chocolate with peanut butter and ice […]

Pineapple Macarons

“Be like a pineapple: stand tall, wear a crown and be sweet on the inside” Aww, how UPLIFTING quote is that? Reminds me to straighten my shoulders and look up even when I feel down. 🙂 I recently purchased a few pairs of the cutest socks ever, one of them which is a pair of pineapple socks in pink (see them in Instagram)! And as I put […]

Blonde Brownies with Berries

This is a quick post about a equally quick treat – berrylicious blonde brownies! It takes less than 10 minutes to whip up the batter and toss in frozen berries coated in potato flour that helps them to stay on top and somewhat intact. You can enjoy the brownies straight from the oven served with vanilla ice cream or allow to cool a bit, plate […]

Peanut Butter Chocolate Macarons

Peanut Butter Chocolate Macarons

They are sweet, a little salty, soft and crunchy – all in one bite. Macarons with cocoa shells one side dipped in dark chocolate and filled with chunky peanut butter for the extra crunch in texture. Though there’s no caramel in these, they do taste a lot like a snickers bar in a form of a macaron! I added little colour effect for a fun […]

Coconut Angel Food Fruit Cake

Coconut Angel Food Fruit Cake

Another birthday in the family – yes! On Tuesday we celebrated my husband’s birthday and Saturday was his dad’s birthday. I wanted to make a naturally dairy free cake (not substituting margarine for butter and so on), so I decided to go for sweet, tender and light sponge cake – Angel Food cake but with fruity flavours. Angel Food cake is normally a really pale […]

Vanilla Butterscotch Cupcakes – Quick & Easy Captain America Shield Cake

It’s my husband’s birthday today, yay! Like always his birthday cake is not exactly for him (( though he nibbles, he isn’t really a cake eater)), but for sharing with his friends and colleagues. This time he asked me to make something quick and easy that would be simple to share. So I decided to make a cake from cupcakes – mini cupcakes to be more exact! Simple and […]

Choux Pastry Doughnuts with Pink White Chocolate Glaze

And sprinkles, of course! These doughnuts are light and airy Choux pastry with sweet white chocolate glaze in pink and colourful sugar sprinkles. They are fun treats and much lighter than traditional yeast doughnuts, and surely they aren’t fried but oven baked! The light Choux pastry itself has a very mild taste and topping is what gives this treat it’s sweetness. Sure you could cut the rings open and […]

Frozen Lemon-Mint Ricotta Pops

Hi, I’m back! Well, I’ve actually been home though the blog has been quiet. I was just having a little break and chilled out catching up with reading, studying, cleaning, did a cleanse and met with friends. Those kind of breaks do wonders, don’t they? I got lots of new ideas and I’m getting inspired from Summer vibes that are very much getting here as the days are […]

White popcorn chocolate macarons – gluten free and without food colouring! I’ve been asked many times how I keep my macarons white so I decided to share this recipe with few extra points about white shells. Oven conditions have a lot to do with how they end up after baking and I’ll get to that soon but to start with the right order of things, lets start from […]

Mini Orange Papaya Cupcakes

Fruitylicious buttery orange papaya cupcakes with deep caramel flavour from unrefined organic coconut sugar. Before I tell you how tasty these cupcakes are, you should know that I don’t really like papayas! Yup, it’s sad (because I’d like to say I love all fruit) but the fruit of papaya is just too sweet for my liking and honestly the butter-like consistency of the ripe fruit isn’t what […]

Coconut-Lemon Tapioca Pudding Margaritas

 Fun take on good old tapioca pudding – coconut lemon margaritas! 😀 I know tapioca pudding is old school but I did not grow up eating it, in fact I was closer to my thirties when I even tried tapioca for the first time! The idea for this dessert came sort of weird way – I was looking to make a fruity and not too […]
