Chocolate Cherry Amaretto and Spelt Fruitcake

I am super happy with this year’s Xmas cake incarnation, a Chocolate Cherry Amaretto and Spelt Fruitcake. It has become a tradition for me to make a different Xmas cake each year and this fruitcake has to be my favourite to date. This cake still plays with the addition of chocolate to the mix which I think elevates a fruitcake to a whole new level but for this year’s version I used spelt flour that I had left over from…

Baked Camembert Focaccia with Honey and Dukkah

Whether we are ready for it or not, we are hurtling into party season. Be it cozy festive dinners inside or lazy day barbecues around the pool I do think this Baked Camembert Focaccia with Honey and Dukkah will fit with any occasion you are preparing for. Crusty freshly baked bread with a round of oozy warm camembert in the middle, drizzled with sweet honey and topped with a sprinkle of sea salt and dukkah makes for an impressive snack to…

Olive Oil Espresso Choc Chip Cookies

I just said that I find baking cookies more of a mission than what it is worth but it was impossible not to make these Olive Oil Espresso Choc Chip Cookies. I came across a photo for the recipe on Instagram and immediately made a note that I had to make Shellie Froidevaux’s recipe. And when Baleia asked me if I wanted to give a bottle of their Extra Virgin Olive Oil away, I knew this recipe was going to be perfect to announce…

Olive Oil Pound Cake

I tracked down the recipe for this Olive Oil Pound Cake after seeing a photo for the most beautiful bundt cake on Twitter. I suffered some serious bundt pan envy for a while and thanks to Google Translate I was able to get the jist of the recipe as the original recipe is in Spanish. I loved the use of olive oil in the recipe and knew I had to bake it.  The result was a delicious moist cake with…

Almond Butter Biscuit

For the life of me I can not remember where I saw these Flourless Almond Butter Cookies from Heartbeet Kitchen but I was immediately drawn to the idea of baking with almond butter and bonus that the recipe had very few other ingredients as well. I find the making and baking of cookies just too much of a mission at the best of times so hardly bake cookies. The whole process of making a dough, rolling it out, baking and decorating…

Zucchini Labneh Tart

Labneh is a soft cheese that can be made at home with minimal effort and delivers a creamy and delicious cheese you can use and serve with endless possibilities. And I think this Zucchini Labneh Tart is a prime example of how versatile the cheese is.  I spotted an image on Pinterest and immediately wanted to make it. After a bit of a search I came across the recipe for the tart from the book Fermented by Charlotte Pike. This tart…
