If you’ve ever seen at least one episode of Bob Ross’ “Joy of Painting”, you know how beloved Bob Ross is. I absolutely loved watching his program, and he was so calm and lovely. And so last week, I decided to have my own Bob Ross moment with a bunch of vegetables.
This type of bread, or more like savoury cake, is something I like making a lot, and there are many recipes on the blog. This one is different from the others because this is a gluten-free version!
These muffins are good for any time of the day. You can eat them in the morning for breakfast, at lunch with a light salad or in the evening as bread. You can even have one with your afternoon tea.
Any nuts together with chocolate is a win. And so is this cake. But it’s not the nut and chocolate combo that makes this cake divine – there is also the moisture that comes with pear!
Pulla means “bun” in Finnish. And it is something that you can find everywhere from cafes to the bakery sections of the supermarkets. Having a pulla with your coffee (well, for me, with tea) is one of the most Finnish things you can do.
I love puff pastry and brie (I love CHEESE!). So yes, of course, this would be a divine combination for me, with fig jam and walnuts added. Oh my, this turned out dellllicious.
The corona restrictions are being lifted, and the catering gigs are slowly coming back. I have a big birthday catering in December. My customers wanted cookies with lots of ginger for the sweet option. So I worked on this one. Yes, they are veeeery gingery.
This bread is actually my version of Levantine flatbread called “manakeesh”. The dough has yeast, and different toppings are added before baking. The most typical topping has za’atar spice mix. I have two other toppings today.
I love dried apricots, just like I love many other dried fruits. But oh boy, I wish it wouldn’t fill me with nuclear level gas. I would then probably eat it in several kilos per week!
So many people have asked me about baklava all these years. Well, too many. When somebody heard that I came from Turkey, most of the time they said, “oh baklavaaaa, do you know how to make baklavaaa?”. Frankly, I’m tired of it as I don’t like baklava myself, and there are so many more delicious dishes in Turkish cuisine. But well, here I am, writing this recipe.
