Passion fruit, pecan and caramel tart

It’s winter. It’s so cold that I am cold even at home, with a blanket and the heating on. And yet sometimes I receive rescue tropical fruit and when I do, I am torn between the desire to eat it fresh and to bake with it. Usually I manage to do both things, but with […]

Persian love cake inspired gateau (vegan)

Hello! Happy Friday. I needed this week to come to and end, it’s been intensive and very difficult and I am so glad I will now have time to bake, walk, relax, watch movies, and do all the things I love without constantly worrying. The worry will stay there, popping out from time to time, […]

As the days go by, I feel more christmassy than ever. I think that given the nature of the year that we are going to leave behind soon, many of us will not be in the mood for celebrations, or maybe some will need to celebrate even more to cheer themselves up. For me, it’s […]

Pain d’epices (vegan and low cal)

When I was a child, I used to go on day trips in the woods with my parents. They would teach me about nature, we would walk a lot with our dog and we would have packed lunch. As it happened on most trips, I ate part of my packed lunch as soon as we […]

Turmeric-Biscoff pull apart buns (vegan)

Black sesame chocolate cake (vegan)

I have made countless variations of this chocolate sponge cake, so last weekend I decided to change it a bit by using some toasted black sesame in the dough. I did not expect the result, meaning that it was super addictive and quite “light”, as the cake is truly not sugary at all and its […]
