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)

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 […]

Black Forest Entremet (vegan)

Psychedelic Halloween Project 🙂 I love Halloween and I love entremets, so I wanted to make something special to have fun at home, since we really do not have a choice about where the entertainment should take place at the moment.  I do not usually use food colouring and if I do I use beetroot […]

Tiramisù Mousse Cake (vegan)

I prepared this recipe for my husband’s birthday, as he is one of the greatest (the greatest, perhaps) fans of tiramisu. Tiramisu is a pretty classic and famous Italian dessert, which in its original version consists of coffee soaked savoiardi (super soft biscuits made with egg whites), mascarpone cream and cocoa powder. Tiramisu is usually […]

Trou Normand Entremet (vegan)

I love autumn. I just love it: the colours of the leaves matches my hair, it’s plaid everywhere, there is Halloween and pre-Christmas and it’s apple season. People feel like drinking liqueur – well, I do – and you get to wear cute jackets without actually freezing.  Over one year ago, the last holiday we […]

Currant and cranberry cake (vegan)

When I want to bake something new and come up with ideas, it’s easier if I get my husband to assign me a specific task. Fruit tart. Something with chocolate. Something soft. These indications will do. When my husband uttered the sentence “fruit cake, or like a cake with sultanas or other dried fruit, but […]
