Sorghum flour and xanthan gum – the two ingredients related to gluten free & vegan baking, the two ingredients that I never tried before and the two ingredients that I substituted with other things before. But now, they are in this cake!
My relationship with pumpkin is getting serious, ahem. Well, after baking cakes and cookies with pumpkin puree, I started to wonder how it would taste and look in a dough. This curiosity ended up with cinnamon and pecan rolls. But I’d like to talk more about the sauce now, more specifically, the brown cheese in the sauce.
I’m super tired right now. Just came home from a catering gig after days and days of sick leave (I recovered from a horrible flu). Normally I would just go to bed and sleep, BUT, I desperately wanted this cake for this week’s gluten free Thursday. Because… Pumpkin makes me happy!
Finnish cuisine is full of different kinds of delicious “pulla”s. These are basically buttery buns with cardamom, which is the most Nordic ingredient ever. Some also have cinnamon, some have more butter than the others, some have extra sugar on top, some have cream in between… Their common characteristic is that they are all extremely delicious and they all look very elegant.
If you want to have a dessert that is quite sweet but not with tons of sugar, I recommend you this extremely easy recipe!
The first time I encountered and tasted chocolate with chili was a muffin in Stockmann bakery in Helsinki. It was 7 years ago. I didn’t even think of the combination before. I liked it when I tasted that time but I wasn’t in love with it. Over the years, I grew to like it more.
Ooops, I just realised that it’s been a while since I published a “Gluten Free Thursday” recipe. Anyway, this recipe, this one here is good. And I mean gooood. It’s a delicious, sweet-but-too-sweet and moist banana bread.
I have to admit, I never thought that fresh rosemary would be so much in harmony with lemon in a sweet baked good, making it taste richer and fresher! Turns out, lemon / rosemary is a great friendship.
I am loving the easy breakfast with overnight oats. To be honest, I always prefer a simple cheese and tomato breakfast to anything else – since my childhood – but overnight oats is a delicious and quite filling alternative to that. And this time, I toasted the oats for a change. Verdict: that’s what I will always do from now on!
So, yesterday I wasn’t feeling well. The world going crazy and all has already been affecting my personal mood. Then yesterday I watched a video about Charlottesville attack last Saturday and I snapped. I had to take my mind off those things and so I baked. I checked whatever I had at home and made these easy peasy cookies.
