Kale Apple Cake

Posted on

This cake was very pretty, but the taste was rather bland. Maybe it was because I used homemade applesauce which isn’t sweetened. The frosting with applesauce was a nice touch, though, and I might use it on something else.

Mixed Fruit Soup

Posted on

This recipe says to use honey and sour cream, but it works fine if you use agave syrup as I did, and replace the sour cream with either non-dairy yoghurt or a nut cream.

Ruffled Milk Pie

Posted on

I know I’ve been posting a lot of dessert recipes lately. I was staying with some people over the holidays and since I offered to help cooking I took over making dessert every night. I don’t usually make dessert at home except for special occasions so it was a nice opportunity for me to do some baking. I didn’t even post all the things I made which weren’t new recipes, like trifle and apple pie.

Anyhow, I made ruffled milk pie. I used the traditional cinnamon and lemon flavour instead of vanilla.

Chai Banana Bread

I used this recipe but did not add the icing. I used a mix of raisins, dried cranberries, and dried apples.

Raspberry Clafoutis

Posted on

Although this is usually made with cherries, it adapts well to most soft fruits. In this case I used frozen raspberries which had been grown this summer by the people I was visiting.


Carrot-Pineapple Bundt Cake

Posted on

My seasonal baking also included a carrot-pineapple bundt cake. Here is the recipe. This was really moist and people liked it quite a bit.

Gingerbread Biscotti

Posted on

I used this basic recipe, but modified it according to some advice in the comments. Specifically:

  • I replaced the oil with butter
  • I added 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
  • I first mixed the dry ingredients, then worked in the butter, then added the wet ingredients
  • I added a bit of water as needed

It was appreciated by the people I made it for.
