Pink Rose Layer Cake

Pretty naked cake in pink – rose flavoured sponge cake, filled with rose buttercream and dark chocolate coconut ganache and decorated with sugar pearls and pink macarons. I used the same filling for macarons and actually only filled the macarons on the same day, which means they did not get refrigerated the normal 24h before eaten but being served on top of buttercream makes them […]

Sugar Free Kiwi Mousse

SunGold and Green Kiwis – ah what a bliss. I had written kiwifruits to our grocery list and to my surprise found both yellow and green and it pretty much made my day. ūüôā This dessert is not only healthier because it’s free of refined sugars, but thanks to the kiwifruit it’s packed with nutrients such as Vitamin C, E and dietary fiber.¬†I found a […]

Peaches & Coconut Macarons

June is here – bring on the summer flavours – Fruits! These bright pink & orange macarons are filled with dairy free homemade peach curd and shredded coconut. The soft filling makes the cookies less crunchy and I’d like to give you a warning: they do seem to break easier – so be careful and make sure they are eaten within 2 days from filling. […]

Sugar Free Cake Roll with Berries

Sugar Free Cake Roll with Berries

I’m currently visiting my family in Finland and naturally taking some time off from baking. I do still like to whip up something quick for everyone to enjoy together. This cake roll is sweetened with natural Finnish honey in both batter and the filling. I used frozen berries that actually melt in just a few minutes on a sunny counter.¬† The cake may easily get […]

Mini Chocolate Cherry Cakes

The cherry¬†season is here! The harvest season has just began and I could not be happier to bake with one of my favourite fruits again. I created this quick and simple¬†mini cake recipe with a few ingredients, using only spoon measurements. The chocolate in the cakes is purely from a rich chocolate pudding that makes a great substitute for melted chocolate. The dark chocolate¬†pudding¬†I used, […]

Mini Sugar Free Lemon Cream Pies

And we got a new favourite sugar free dessert in the house! Actually not only a delicious light lemony dessert – had one as breakfast this morning and it lightened my day until afternoon. My husband had one as he returned from work and he would not stop telling me how much he loves this one – he is not a huge fan of sweets […]

Chocolate Oreo Piranha Plants

This one is for all those Super Mario fans like myself. Though I did get some comments about them being from the Little Shop of Horrors, these are the¬†Piranhas from Super Mario series. They are packed with sugar power and are ready to eat anything that approaches them…or to be eaten. ūüėČ If you are following me on Instagram, you’ve probably seen the picture of […]

Sugar Free Berry Almond Tart

Sugar Free Berry Almond Tart

Soft shortcrust base with berrylicious & milky almond filling, sweetened with granulated stevia. I used a mix of sweet and sour berries: frozen¬†blueberries, currants, boysenberries, raspberries and strawberries. Fresh berries would do wonderful too and I’m planning to give it a try with cloudberries as soon as I find some. With this¬†Sugar Free Sunday piece of tart I wish all moms out there a very […]

Mini Peanut Butter Cupcakes

Mini Peanut Butter Cupcakes

A mini version of a rich, moist and so peanutty cupcake. With or without a dark chocolate bottom¬†makes a perfect two bite snack, though you may end up eating more than just one… Peanut¬†butter and chocolate are maybe one of the best flavour pairings in the world. The slightly salty taste of peanut butter enhances the sweet taste of chocolate. Typically peanut butter is paired […]

Coffee Cake & Butterfly Mosaic Decoration

Recently I started a little mosaic project, covering a small glass table with leftover glass pieces from projects I worked on a couple years ago. I really enjoy making mosaics, putting small pieces together to create a bigger picture, paying attention to the spaces in between and the direction of each piece.¬†Without setting a timer I could spend hours cutting and glueing glass, it’s so […]

Sugar Free Chocolate Forest Fruit Muffins

A¬†simple dessert¬†to indulge your sweet tooth, you can make them in¬†less than half an hour! These chocolate muffins are sweetened with granulated stevia that’s used as a cup for cup sugar substitute. If you are using liquid stevia, you’ll only need 1 or 2¬†drops as it is¬†highly¬†concentrated. Serve warm and for an ultimate treat eat with whipped cream or vanilla ice cream – sugar free, […]

Lemon Raspberry Cake

Lemon Raspberry Cake

A cake to match the season – bright colours and fresh flavours!¬†Spring is¬†probably the most colourful time of the year both in nature and all sorts of celebrations around the world. I made this cake for a little pre-vappu celebrations (Finnish holiday,¬†Walpurgis ¬†Night celebrated 30.4-1.5) ¬†to be enjoyed with a glass of homemade¬†sima¬†while frying May Day donuts. This is a dry cake with colourful frosting […]

Sugar Free Coconut Strawberry Fritters

Sugar Free Coconut Strawberry Fritters

If you never had a deep fried strawberry before, this may sound like a strange dessert but the chances are you’ll come to love serving them in your summer parties and gatherings. The strawberries are coated in a light airy batter and deep fried until golden. This makes the strawberries juicier and when eaten shortly after frying the coating stays crunchy. Normally sweet fritters are […]

Rose Raspberry & Cherry Chocolate Macarons
Macarons

Rose Raspberry & Cherry Chocolate Macarons

So far my favourite pink macarons! Rose & raspberry is a posh combination of flavours and cherry and dark chocolate are just so good together. The lighter shells did not quite get the blush pink I hoped for. As¬†macarons do get lighter when baked, they’d needed another drop of colouring to get the pink hue. I rarely use buttercream in macaron filling, but it works […]

Sugar Free Pink Push Pop Cakes

A bit of ombre and berries for this Sugar Free Sunday. ¬† 3 shades of pink cake layered from light to dark with vanilla flavoured mascarpone filling, strawberries and raspberries. These cute¬†push pop cakes are sweetened with natural honey and are free of refined sugars. Milky mascarpone cheese itself is slightly sweet and compliments juicy red berries beautifully, not to mention the extra kick from […]

Cookie Monster Macarons

“C is for cookie and cookie is for me” Cookie Monster. Featuring the mini chocolate chip cookies¬†I shared yesterday, here’s my version of the blue cookie loving monster. As it’s hard to get dark hue on macaron shells I did not achieve the navy blue look but they turned pretty adorable anyway. These fellows are filled with Nutella, but any ganache will work too.¬†Here’s a […]

Mini Chocolate Chip Cookies

Cute little crunchy chocolate chip cookies. Originally I made these cookies for another baking project (that you will later see on the blog), but found they are also adorable in a small glass cookie jar, not to mention a delicious¬†little sweet snack! Have to admit that this week returning home from the office, I’ve been going straight to the cookie jar and had one or […]
