Orange, polenta, almond and olive oil cake. (dairy and gluten free)
A few weeks ago I made a selection of baked goods and jewellery to sell to raise some money to go towards my art foundation in September - and this was one of the ‘goods’!
I also made some chocolate Hungarian biscuits, sandwiched with chocolate buttercream, Swiss carrot cake muffins with cream cheese icing and walnuts and some lemon shortbread. I was left with very little at the end of it, and what was left was soon devoured by my family! :)
The recipe for the cake above can be found here. (I left out the rosemary and it was still beautiful!)
Broccoli quiche with buttery new potatoes, pesto pasta salad, orange and carrot salad and creamy sweetcorn and pepper salad.
I went out to lunch today with one of my oldest friends (I can’t believe I’ve known you 12 years, Elise!) to a lovely delicatessen called Peppers. They have separate vegetarian/vegan and gluten free menus too if you so require them, which is always nice, as I know having a ‘restrictive’ diet can feel like you’re being a pest - this way your options are already laid out in front of you, woo hoo! :D
“5 minute baked banana oatmeal” made with quinoa flakes in place of oats, topped with quartered fresh strawberries, coconut, cinnamon, crushed walnuts, pumpkin seeds, maple almond butter and a drizzle of agave.
Apple, almond and coconut cake.
It’s - gluten free, soy free, dairy free, corn free and sugar free! Blimey. It’s made using ground almonds, coconut oil, almond milk, vanilla, agave and eggs whipped up to create the volume. Then you pour the mix in to your tin and arrange apple slices, core side down, in a swirl from the outside right to the centre, topping with slivered almonds and shredded coconut. It’s a bit fiddly but very tasty! :)
Breakfast of champions - French toast oatmeal (1/2 cup oats, 1/2 cup almond milk, 1/2 cup water, vanilla, cinnamon, a cage free, local egg whisked in) topped with ground almonds, flaxseed, banana, walnuts, pumpkin seeds, organic almond butter and a drizzle of maple syrup with two kiwis.
Bow down to the breakfast.
Lemon, polenta and ground almond cake. (Gluten and dairy free! :D)
I love citrus desserts but unfortunately, in most places, I’ve found that the lemon cake is dry. Team that with a lack of gluten and you’d expect a horribly dry cake but this is one of the tastiest I’ve ever had! I’m going to have to see if I can recreate this at home…
