Lemon and Rose Doughnuts

The recipe for these beautiful Lemon and Rose Doughnuts come from Joudie Kalla’s book Palestine on a Plate – Memories from my mother’s kitchen. It is probably the most non Palestinian recipe and as Joudie mentions, doughnuts aren’t typically Palestinian but the essence of the Middle East really shine through in these doughnuts. Fragrant rose water, tangy lemon icing and dried rose buds make for a delicious and beautiful sweet treat and with Valentines Day around the corner, I thought…

Apple and Olive Oil Breakfast Muffins

There are hardly any muffin recipes on the site which is a shame as they are so quick and easy to make. I would not go as far to call them healthy as they can be loaded with sugar but these Apple and Olive Oil Muffins are quite light on the sugar and have some good for the heart extra virgin olive oil added in the mix. I have added vanilla, cinnamon and nutmeg to the batter, all spices that…

Hazelnut Olive Oil Cake

If you are looking for a rich and luxurious cake as a christmas cake but not the traditional fruit cake this Hazelnut Olive Oil Cake with Fresh Plums could be a delicious option for something different and summery. The recipe is from Milk and Honey, one of my favourite blogs. I made Jennifer’s recipe a while back and it is absolutely delicious. She made it with a divine coffee cream filling and decadent ganache topping and I urge you to…

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…

Chocolate Beetroot Cupakes

These Chocolate Beetroot Cupcakes have the most delicious Crème Fraiche Ganache slathered on top of them. The Crème Fraiche adds a tanginess to the ganache which I think tastes so much better than using double cream. The cupcakes are sweet and the ganache is sweet as well so you need another flavour to cut through all the sweetness and the sourness of the Crème Fraiche does the job perfectly. And luckily there is a bit of ganache left over which…
