Orange Almond and Chocolate Cakes [gluten free, lactose free]

Maltese and Gozitan oranges come in all shapes, flavours and sizes, blood oranges with bright red flesh that taste very faintly of raspberries, some with big navels and no seeds, bitter Seville oranges brought to the island during Arab rule and in the open rambling countryside, you can find fragrant bergamot oranges

Cannoli Cake Nua

Cake Nua just out of the oven. When you make it at home allow it to cool before sharing 🙂 ‘I love the idea of baking a cake with its own filling.   This week’s cake contains pockets of cannoli filling; the filling is piped into the cake batter and the batter encases the filling during baking.  On tv due to time constraints, we sliced … Read More Cannoli Cake Nua

Christmas Tunis Cake

‘As an alternative to those who do not enjoy fruits and nuts, here is the recipe for a Christmas Tunis Cake which I made on tv this week based on Mary Berry’s recipe.  This cake intrigues me because there is apparently no association with Tunis but it was very popular in the UK in the 70’s and commerically produced by McVities.  I have made … Read More Christmas Tunis Cake

Bakewell Cake with Mincemeat

I’ve just finished writing a piece on the history of Victorian baking and the good old bakewell came to mind again.  This week I used more or less the same ingredients of the tart filling and with the addition of my homemade mincemeat and made a Bakewell Cake. I reduced the sugar and fat content but still left enough to give that rounded taste. … Read More Bakewell Cake with Mincemeat

Chocolate Coconut cake with reduced sugar and no butter

Some of my readers tell me that they are not able to get used to the taste of Stevia. Of course Stevia is not processed sugar and our tastebuds need to adjust. This chocolate coconut cake which I made during our show this week has equal quantities of sugar and stevia, with the idea of gradually eliminating sugar. For the chocolate coconut cake you … Read More Chocolate Coconut cake with reduced sugar and no butter

No knead Date and Apple Bundt

There is something I find so therapeutic about working with yeast and this week’s bake is worth trying out. You simply need to mix the ingredients with a spoon for the dough before you go to bed, and the next morning you will wake up to a very springy, airy dough that feels so light to touch. Its amazing. As much as I try … Read More No knead Date and Apple Bundt
