Gluten-free Vanilla Cake
Today, I will share with you the recipe for a delicious Gluten-free Vanilla Cake, perfect to have at breakfast or tea time.
My youngest daughter recently turned 9 and I made this Instagram Cake for her birthday party. Needless to say, she loved it.
Crostata has always been my favourite cake. As a child, I would always ask my mother to bake an Apple Crostata for my birthday. Today, I still bake it quite often my my children, and this Nutella Crostata is their absolute favourite.
Low Fodmap Lemon Cake
Today I am sharing with you the recipe for a delicious Low FODMAP Lemon Cake. FODMAP (fermentable oligosaccharides, disaccharides, monosaccharides, and polyol) is a term that describes a group of foods that contain indigestible nutrients that feed bacteria in the gut.
Italian Almond Carrot Cake
Oh cakes! I really love a moist slice of cake to go with my tea in the afternoon. This Italian Almond Carrot Cake is particularly good.
Schiacciata alla Fiorentina
Tomorrow is Mardi Gras or Carnevale as we call it in Italy. Carnevale is a big event in Italy – kids even stay home from school! Everyone dresses up for almost a week and goes on parades with all kinds of floats.
As you may remember, just before Christmas, my youngest daughter turned 8. She wanted an Indian themed birthday party, so she and her sister could wear the beautiful Indian outfits their grandma got for them from India.
Vegan Apple Spice Cake
As you may know, I have recently discovered that I am lactose intolerant. That means that I have to also find new ways to satisfy my sweet tooth, so I am always on the lookout for recipes that do not include dairy. Good vegan recipes, like this Vegan Apple Spice Cake, are always great, as…
Chocolate Yule Log
As you know, I grew up in Milan, in Northern Italy. Milan is in a fantastic area, just in the middle of Europe, which made travelling very easy even in the pre-low-flight-era. My parents have always loved Paris, so we would go there at least once a year, usually before Christmas. So, I have had…
Dairy-free Raspberry Jam Crostata #BakingBloggers
While I was on holiday in Tahiti (yes… and expect some posts on that!), I read on Facebook that Sue from A Palatable Pastime was organizing #BakingBloggers, a group of bloggers who would bake something different once a month and publish it on their blogs. I really liked the idea, as I don’t usually bake…
Oil Shortbread Dough
The other day my eldest daughter came home from school saying she wanted to bake a crostata for the whole family. We usually make a butter-based crostata dough (click here for the recipe) which tastes amazing and never fails! However, I have recently found out that I am lactose intolerant and she absolutely wanted mummy…
5 Minute Vanilla Cake
My eldest daughter turned 10 a couple of weeks ago! Yes, 10… double digits already! As her birthday fell during the winter school break, we decided to postpone her party to the following week. However, I couldn’t leave her without a cake on her birthday!! So, I made her this quick 5 Minute Vanilla Cake….
Lemon and Oil Cakes
I absolutely love lemon-based desserts. I am not sure if it’s an age thing, but lately, they have become m, favourite and I like them even more than chocolate-based desserts! If you had told me this a few years ago, I would have never believed it could happen! These Lemon and Oil are delicious and…
Apple Skillet Cookie with Maple Butterscotch Sauce
There is absolutely nothing better than apple desserts, especially in winter. I find them to be the most comforting of dishes. I love the flavour, the consistency, the aroma that fills the house when you bake anything made with apples. This Apple Skillet Cookie with Maple Butterscotch Sauce has become a huge family favourite in…
Apricot Jam Crostata
Growing up I have always preferred Nutella over jam. However, I did make an exception for peach jam. I know you may be wondering why I am talking about peach jam when I have used apricot jam for this crostata. Well, the reason is simple: I can’t find peach jam at regular supermarkets here in…
Strawberry Chocolate Cupcakes
I made these Strawberry Chocolate Cupcakes for my youngest daughter’s birthday party… I can’t believe they were still sitting in my archive! Anyhow, if you remember, she had requested a Japanese/Doraemon themed-party, so I thought of decorating the cupcakes with little cherry blossoms made out of fondant. They were a hit, like cupcakes always are….
Triple Chocolate Mousse
I made this Triple Chocolate Mousse for Christmas and it’s been sitting in my archives ever since! I can’t believe how quickly time flies! I love all mousse and small portion desserts, so this recipe is an absolute keeper. Besides, who can say no to chocolate? This dessert is made up of 2 different mousses…
Double Chocolate Cupcakes
I made these Double Chocolate Cupcakes for my youngest daughter’s birthday party in December and they were a hit with both adults and kids alike. I must admit that I usually do not like buttercream, as it is usually way too sweet for my taste, but this chocolate version got me hooked! I guess it’s…
Blueberry Limoncello Yogurt Ciambellone
Don’t you think that Blueberry and Lemon is the perfect combination of flavours? I certainly do! And even more so when liquor is involved! This Limoncello Blueberry Yogurt Ciambellone is AMAZING in flavour and texture. The cake is fluffy and light with a good hint of lemon and the blueberry make it even more moist….
My youngest daughter turned 7 on the 1st of December. She fell in love with Doraemon when we visited Japan a couple of years ago and this year she requested a Japanese themed birthday party and a Doraemon cake! As I too love Japan and grew up watching Japanese anime (Doraemon included!), I was very…
Water-based Vanilla Cake
After having my gallbladder removed, I am back at eating “almost” normally. I still try not to have very heavy meals like greasy, fried food or things that are very high in fat… I still need some time for that, but in the meantime, I am still trying to satisfy my cravings. This Water-based Vanilla…
