I first ate figs sometime in my twenties, as part of a salad at some hotel brunch. Yeah, quite late in the day, I know 🙂 Till then I had only seem them used on international cooking shows like Top Chef, MasterChef and so on. I liked that it was sweet yet not overly so and had seen how versatile an ingredient it could be. However, I somehow never got around to buying them to cook or bake with, till last year. I decided to give it a whirl, and obviously started with a simple dessert. This fig & honey loaf just amps up a regular vanilla loaf and is worth adding to your repertoire.Continue reading “Fig & Honey Loaf”
It’s the last mango dish for the year! Wrapping up this glorious season with a dessert of course 🙂 This cake is super easy to make but is very different from what you might be used to eating as a mango topped cake 🙂Continue reading “Spiced Cake with Mangoes & Cream Cheese”
It’s mango season! Time to devour all the delicious mangoes you can get your hands on!
It’s also quite hot and with everything going on, I didn’t really have the mind space for technical baking or being near an oven. But I still needed to fix my mango dessert craving 🙂 So I decided to make a mango cheesecake, the no bake version. Easy and delicious. The only downside is it takes a fair bit of time to get it ready (hello, fridge), but once it’s done, it’s worth it! 💛💛
It is the season for those lovely red carrots! Which means lots of carrot desserts 🙂 I usually end up baking a classic carrot cake or simple carrot muffins, but this time I decided to switch things up by trying a gluten free version, loaded with walnuts and chocolate chips. And oh my god! It is so good!Continue reading “Loaded Carrot Cake (Gluten Free)”
This is my favourite cake to bake this time of year. It’s chocolatey, boozy, soft and delicious! Perfect festive cake and just feels very Christmassy to me 🙂Continue reading “Chocolate & Rum Cake”
