Returning readers will know that sugar cookies have been my nemesis thus far. With a small kid in the house, this staple of childhood baking was sorely missing from our lives, and I was worried we’d hit Christmas without having cracked it. Lots of recipes promise rice flour-only short breads and sugar cookies that melt […]
This was made as a dry run for a fathers day cherry pie, but honestly it was delicious itself! We made homemade roasted banana and cinnamon vegan icecream to go with it, and it was fantastic, but any sweet creamy icecream would be a perfect accompaniment as this isn’t actually a very sweet pie. Good […]
One thing I’d like to avoid on this page is the image of me as some flawless baker. We’re in uncharted territory here folks, and while I could probably knock up a batch of normal, allergen-stuffed cupcakes without breaking a sweat, the moment we venture off the beaten track and into the jungle of Free […]
I first discovered these in a recipe book from the excellent Korean cook Maangchi, and these are an absolute staple in our household now. I love an adaptable, earns-it’s-own-keep recipe and this one really is a jack of all trades; Koreans love them rolled into finger length and width sticks and covered in spicy sauce […]
I have a few important points here which I’ve learned through very painful trial and error. Firstly, you want to triple, at least, the prep time. You’re going to be stopping for potty breaks, chasing sticky fingers around with damp cloths, re-measuring after someone plays with the scales halfway through pouring (a favourite party trick […]
These are the first doughnuts that Kiddo has ever eaten, and I think it might be True Love. They’re crispy on the outside, soft and chewy on the inside, and oh so delicious. You’ll need a cooking or candy thermometer.
Prep time: 15 mins (not including zesting) Bake time: 40 mins Difficulty: Easy Dense, nutty and with that summery zing of citrus in the background, a little slice of this pairs just perfectly with a large coffee.
Let’s be honest, it’s why you’re here Prep time: 20 mins Bake time: 45mins Difficulty: easy This might be my fav bake so far. Rice flour MUST be mochi/sticky/short-grain/sweet/glutinous variety (it goes by many names). This can be bought in a big bag from any Asian […]
Prep time: 20 mins Bake time: 45 mins Difficulty: Easy This is the sister to the Bacon Cake. I know what you’re thinking, why would you need anything other than Bacon Cake, buuut sometimes you want something sweeter! FYI, if chocolate doesn’t give you migranes you can fold semisweet chocolate chips into the batter instead […]
Prep time: 15 mins Baking time: 35 mins Difficulty: Very Easy My mom didn’t like flapjacks before she tried these. A lot of flapjacks are either a bit tough, or sweet but lacking in actual flavour…. not these. They’re rich, gooey, a bit crumbly and packed with dark brown sugar and butter! […]
