Berries matcha cake (vegan)

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 […]

Rainbow carrot and beetroot pie (vegan)

I love pies and tarts and quiches and I love decorating pie crust as you might have noticed! However sometimes you just want to have a more veggie forward meal, and you might have colorful carrots and beetroots (I have just received a bunch from @oddboxldn) so why not decorate the top with veggies rather […]

Turmeric-Biscoff pull apart buns (vegan)

Hello! 🙂  I have to confess that my husband and I have started shouting “Merry Christmas!” while jumping around the house and cooking for two weeks now (possibly more). This year Christmas is bittersweet. We have been together for 6 years now, married for 1, and we have never managed to spend a Christmas together, […]

Vegan “sbrisolona”

Italian cuisine is great, everyone knows it, but sometimes it’s also not super accessible to vegans or to people with allergies etc. It is overall considered to be quite healthy, but some of the tastiest recipes are traditionally heavy and inundated with the amazing olive oil and friends.  I cannot say I am an expert […]

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 […]

Pineapple, Papaya and Raspberry tart (vegan)

Despite the flavours not being very autumnal, I have received the pineapple and the papaya with odd box and I felt like trying something new. I hadn’t been having a tart in a while, and even though the tart is always out there, even if I am cooking and eating something else, sometimes there is […]

The weekend is close and I am already planning my next big bake, it cheers me up non grey days like this. To be honest, I don’t mind rainy, cloudy, foggy days, I actually enjoy the quietness in compared to the weather outside and it’s the perfect weather to enjoy a (good) horror movie at […]

Mini chocolate rhubarb cups (vegan, gf)

Sometimes I just want to create a new dessert and it’s the middle of the week and I don’t have time to bake complicated stuff. But I still want and need to bake, to take my mind off things, and create something colourful and comforting. So I thought of these mini chocolate cups, with a […]
