So, I’ve never been a fan of apple pies, really. But it goes back to my dislike for heavy pie doughs. That’s why when I made this pie, using phyllo sheets as the pie dough, I absolutely loved it – it is so so much lighter and crispier, and indeed flakier than other pies.
I believe that everyone has to have one simple, decent chocolate cake recipe at hand. This one is especially for those who prefer gluten free baking.
I would have loved to be writing right now how much I’ve been wining and dining but I am not that good at it for the past few years, I mean the wining part. That’s because my stomach is extremely fragile and has had many problems. So I’m very happy to find an alternative way to consume wine: baking a cake with it!
Autumn is full on with cool weather, falling yellow leaves, a bit of rain and a bit of sunny days altogether and days getting shorter. And so I continue flirting with pumpkin and in this post, our relationship is all about being a nice and delicious pie with a friend a bit unusual to tag along in pies: phyllo!
I have been planning to work on this recipe for I don’t know how long. I bought ricotta and cream cheese a few times in the past few months to work on it but I ended up using the ricotta for other recipes and ate the cream cheese! Finally, I did it!
Ok, confession time: When I first saw chocolate hummus somewhere – was it on Instagram maybe? – my stomach turned upside down with the idea. But I still had to try it. And I did. And I was surprised. Because I liked it!
I love custard. I love everything related to custard. I don’t like drinking milk, but I love the milky taste of custard, combined with eggs of course. This pie is a perfect example of milky, sweet custard – as a pie, but without a crust.
Yes it is! For Finnish readers, the only problem may be to find it because I only know 2 shops in Itäkeskus which sell kadayif (I will write about them below). But once you get a hold of it, you’ll be more than happy to make this delicious and easiest dessert.
For the last few weeks, since Helsinki warmed up, I’ve been planning to make a light, summery dessert. This is it! And it couldn’t be easier!
Well, I know you, friends in Helsinki, you will look at the weather outside while reading this very summery recipe and think, where did the summer go? We had an amazing weather in May with temperatures going up as far as 26C and we were all happy and also quite shocked. But now it’s back to normal June weather, which is, meh. And yet, this cannot stop us from eating cakes which resemble summer!
