When you think of Greek (or Mediterranean) salad, what kind of ingredients come to your mind? I guess mostly olives, tomatoes, feta.. maybe some herbs… onions? Yes, so imagine these muffins like a salad bundled up in a muffin form!
I don’t really like so-called Women’s Magazines. But whenever I go to my hairdresser, I check the first few on the shelf for the food pages. As I was going through one of the magazines last time I was there, I found this recipe in one of the magazines (and for the life of me, I cannot remember which magazine it was!). I loved the use of fresh basil in a cake, so I decided to try it.
So.. my experiments with black tahini continues! And today I have a black cake recipe for you made this slightly bitter tahini type. This cake is very chewy in the middle and quite crusty on the outside. And to “spice” things up, there is also some brandy in it.
The first time I made this cake, I did it as a very regular cake, with normal (cow) milk. As I was making it, I thought how easy it would actually be to convert it to a vegan cake. So the next time, I used almond milk and it was the same delicious cake really! Therefore, here you are, for this monday, I am presenting you the vegan cake!
My previous apartment was a quite big one unlike my tiny (but big in Helsinki standards) studio apartment. At some point, my roommate was my classmate Anja. We threw quite many big parties at our apartment when we lived together. And we also went to many picnics together. She would often bake this one bread roll with herbs for these occasions and we all loved it. This savoury cake is the cakey version of this bread – similar at least, with a few changes from me.
I don’t make muffins often. In fact, I very, VERY rarely make them, even though I’ve known the song Muffin Man for 25 years. I actually have no idea if that song is really related to the muffins we know today, but I just didn’t know how to start writing today, hmm.. Anyway, muffins.
I don’t know where I saw this cake first, probably in one of my endless recipe surfing on the internet. The real version of this cake is called “Tarta de Santiago” meaning cake of St. James and it always has imprint of the Cross of Saint James (cruz de Santiago) on top. This one I made here is quite close to this cake.
Hello from Istanbul! I came here last Friday for a mini break to be with my family on my birthday and New Year’s Eve! And today is my birthday! This is why I wanted to publish this simple yet very delicious cake recipe, for all those who were born today and want to celebrate with a quick cake!
Before I moved to Finland, my relationship with berries was restricted to summer holidays in Sinop.
People who know me well also know very well that I love hazelnuts. And yes I do. But the truth is, I also love all the other nuts, almost as much as hazelnuts. Especially pistachios. I can eat a whole bag of pistachios in one setting. Or I can turn them into an nice flour and make a gorgeous cake.
