This gluten free banana bread cake recipe is incredibly simple and quick, requiring only about half an hour of your precious time. But it’s half an hour well spent, for the cake is moist and soft and crumbly, with a sinfully delicious caramelised top that is pure crispy caramelised goodness and ohmygosh so delicious.
Recently, I’ve been interacting more with the gluten free community. I personally don’t have a super-serious gluten allergy, but an excess of gluten makes me “puff up” (hiii, water retention) and just feel blah. It’s disconcerting reading stories of people with coeliac disease – way too many start viewing food as their enemy. I had someone say to me that the one thing they really need is to “be reminded of a time when food used to be enjoyable”.
Orange zest and pecans join forces in these amazing orange and pecan salted caramel cookie bars. This cookie bar recipe is incredibly simple and super easy to follow. From the melt-in-the-mouth salted caramel layer, to the buttery, crumbly pecan cookie base with bursts of aromatic orange zest – every single bite of this delightful dessert will blow your mind!
As I’m sure you’ve noticed so far, if you’ve been following my posts, I love to describe food and recipes in excruciating detail, with way too many flowery adjectives and an almost scary amount of enthusiasm. This will continue. After all, you can’t taste the deliciousness I so very much want to share with you, so hopefully my words are powerful enough for you to get at least a hint of the amazing flavours hidden in every single one of my recipes.
Chock-full of healthy ingredients and almost-like-a-milkshake delicious, this spring green smoothie with pea shoots is a true nutritional powerhouse. It’s almost overflowing with Vitamins A, B, C and K, and provides the perfect balance of healthy fats, protein and carbohydrates to be nicely filling. Healthy has never tasted quite so good.
Smoothies are amazing. Let’s just agree on that and move on. You get all of the oh-my-gosh-so-decadently-delicious effect of a milkshake, with a hefty dose of I-am-a-super-healthy-superhero-and-I-am-totally-ready-to-take-on-the-world vibe of a salad.
Healthy, full of flavour, and done in virtually no time, this vegetable omelette with pea shoots is an ode to the awesomeness that are simple, fresh ingredients. Be it a savoury breakfast, a quick lunch, or even a filling snack – this vegetable omelette is the answer.
This recipe is the first in a series of recipes coming from my mum’s kitchen. You will be able to find all the future deliciousness in the main menu under the hugely uninspired title: “My Mum’s Kitchen”.
Let me start this post by saying that I’m not responsible for the masterpiece that is this vegetable omelette recipe. The cooking is all my mum, while the superb photography is all my dad. You see, I owe my love for cooking and baking to my mum. As well as the skill, the knowledge, and the never-mind-the-recipe-I’ll-just-do-it-my-way attitude in the kitchen. My dad’s been attempting to teach me the ins-and-outs of photography, and many things stick… but, well, I’ll-just-do-it-my-way attitude has a way of… spreading… to all areas of life. Oops.
