Gluten and Dairy Free Carrot & Sesame Cake

Hello everyone

This flavour combination maybe sounds a bit odd but let me tell you how it came about.  I was reading some food history (don’t ask) and it talked about how traditional items have been transformed into modern interpretations.

The carrot cake started life in Israel as a moist sticky sponge made with tahini and decorated with sesame seeds. Through the ages it transformed into a lighter sponge, lost the sesames and picked up some frosting.

I’ve tried to combine the two cakes to make this frosted carrot and sesame cake and I think it sounds a bit weird but tastes amazing.

Enjoy!

Gluten and Dairy Free Apricot & Sultana Breakfast Crunch

Morning everyone

It’s the weekend!  I’m having a relaxing start to the day – made a treat breakfast of some banana muffins which I’m enjoying just now as I type up this recipe (I’ll share the recipe for the muffins with you another day).

I haven’t really managed to find a gluten and dairy free breakfast cereal that I’m a huge fan of and doesn’t cost a small fortune so I usually make my own.  This time I made an apricot and sultana crunch breakfast cereal which I enjoyed last week with some yoghurt and fresh fruit.  The cereal is simple to make and can be stored for a couple of weeks in an airtight container.

Enjoy!

Gluten and Dairy Free Sweet Potato, Ginger & Coconut Milk Soup

Hello

Autumn seems to have appeared out of nowhere so I thought it would be good to share some warming recipes.  As we have been in Italy at a constant 25 degrees for the last few weeks I’m feeling the cold today.

I’m going to work on some new gluten and dairy free soup recipes that I’ll share with you over the next few months. This soup has a lovely balance of flavours from the sweet potato, a pinch of fiery ginger and the creamy coconut milk.

Enjoy!
