BLUEBERRY SOUR PUSS CHEESECAKE

Here’s a zingy little cheesecake I had the privilege of creating for Mac’s new Sour Puss Blueberry Beer. It’s light and creamy and filled with tangy lemons and plump mulched blueberries giving it a pretty purple hue. The whole combination is layered on top…

COCONUT, LEMON & RASPBERRY ALMOND CAKE (GF)

Birthday’s are for treats right?! This decadent buttery cake is my new go to birthday cake. It’s super simple with gluten-free richness that goes a long way – only needing the teeniest piece. I’ve iced it as think birthday cakes need icing but feel…

AMARANTH PORRIDGE W/ COCONUT, GINGER & TUMERIC

LEMON, COCONUT & FAIRY FLOSS CELEBRATION CAKE

Here’s a wee pink number I recently made for my niece’s third birthday. I also made it for mum’s 70th (sans the floss) and boy was it a hit. It’s so simple, everything is just whizzed together in a food processor. I’ve adapted it from…

THE ULTIMATE COCONUT ROUGH BANANA BREAD (GF,DF)

This is the best banana loaf I’ve made hands down – gluten-free or regular. I make it every week (sometimes twice!) for lunchboxes and mid-afternoon snacks. Packed with coconut, it’s super moist, with the lightness of 4 eggs and almond meal. Although it’s not overly sweet, it doesn’t…

CHOCOLATE COURGETTE CAKE WITH JAFFA AVOCADO GANACHE

I’m trying (at times!) to really limit my gluten intake to combat some thyroid issues. I’ve been experimenting a lot with different flours to make sure my cakes are still light and fluffy. Don’t worry there’ll still be plenty of decadent goodness coming your…

CHEWY LIME & WHITE CHOC COOKIES (GF)

Thank goodness limes have come down in price! We’ve planted a tree but I think we’ll need to wait another season for fruit (annoyingly) I adore limes for their sharp flavour and versitility for both sweet and savoury dishes. These chewy little morsels are…
