So, my experimentations of using olive oil and herbs in cakes continue. Today’s cake has basil and part of the flour used for the batter is corn flour. The strawberry sauce is optional, however it adds a very rich taste indeed.
For a long time I’ve been planning to make an olive oil cake. So here is the first trial!
Many years ago I posted the recipe for a chocolate beetroot cake. Since then I’ve known what a match made in heaven it is, beetroot and dark chocolate. But I seem to have forgotten that for a long time! Luckily, I remembered it again and tried it on a brownie recipe this time.
This buttery raspberry cake with silky ricotta is the perfect cake for your next tea time!
It’s September 1st today and I had a long walk in my favourite part of Helsinki nature with a summer top and shorts today. It was a beautiful summer-ish day. I even had a tiny sun tan on my nose. But before going out, I made a cake that fit this beautiful warm day perfectly: a lemon and poppy seed cake.
A couple of years ago, I posted the recipe for a traditional Turkish dessert called “Revani”. Now, this recipe I’m giving today is a similar one, but this is more like loaf cake and it has a few more ingredients, like coconut and almonds. Also, the syrup is orange flavoured.
Here is a simple gluten free cake for you. With the slightly gritty texture of almonds and refreshing coconuts, this cake is tasty, filling and rich.
Right this moment, I have a massive headache. I am looking at the screen with lowest brightness and even that dim light sends lightning bolts inside my head. I am wishing that something to make me happy, like these shortbread bars, were here right now.
Erm, well, I’m about to have a heart attack at this very moment. So I decided to work on this blog post. The thing is, I am not about to have a heart attack because of pineapples.
I’ve been working on dried fruit & nut combinations lately. And this cake is the best result so far. I mean, seriously, I could have eaten the whole thing by myself if I didn’t have a place to take it..
