    Sugar Topped Lemon Shortbread

    Several years ago, I bought a bag of Raw Sugar to make ‘Kasutera’ Cake. I still have a lot of it because it’s been difficult for me to use those large Sugar crystals. I am trying to use it up now as it is getting old. ‘Sugar Coated Cookies‘ is a good way to use …

    Apple Pancakes

    The other day, when I was cooking ‘Ukrainian Inspired Cabbage Pancakes’ again, as I am loving them, I thought I could make sweet pancakes in the same way using Apple, then I tried. I used Granny Smith Apple. A lot of juice came out from it and made the batter very runny. I didn’t squeeze …

    Peanut Butter & Oats Cookies

    The other day, I saw Vegan Peanut Butter Cookies that can be made with Peanut Butter only. It reminded me an old recipe that I wrote when I tried to make ‘ANZAC Biscuits’ with Peanut Butter. The biscuits were too heavy and too overwhelming, and I gave up on the recipe. I tried the old …

    Simple Yoghurt & Lemon Cake

    Sadly it was the war in Ukraine that introduced me Sunflower Oil. When I started my challenge to cook Ukrainian dishes and cakes, I started using Sunflower Oil and I fell in love with it. I often use it for cakes lately. Sunflower Oil makes the cakes soft and the cakes stay soft when cold. …
