    Matcha Snowball Cookies

    These cookies melt in your mouth. I love the delicate powdery texture of these cookies. The cookie dough needs to be dry and just moist enough so that you can form it into balls. DO NOT add more Sugar to the dough because I think it will ruin the flavour. The cookies will get coated …

    Coffee Jelly Chocolate Parfait

    As we all know Coffee and Chocolate are a great combination. This is a delightful cold dessert that is easy to make, however, it takes time as you need to cool it in fridge. I like Coffee Jelly not very sweet, rather bitter and aromatic. When jellies are set, you need to decorate the parfait. …

    Almond Meal & Lemon Cake (No Flour)

    I made this Lemon Cake for someone who is allergic to some flours. As I was not sure which flour was OK, it was best to use no flour at all. This is Almond Meal 100% cake. If the person was allergic to dairy, I could omit Butter. This is a very moist delicious cake. …

    Almond Tart

    This recipe is actually almost identical to my ‘Fruit Tart’. I simply increased the amount of Almond Cream to fill the tart case, and covered it with Almond Flakes. This is a very simple tart. If you use a smaller tart pan, I recommend my ‘Easiest Sweet Shortcrust Pastry’. Almond Cream can be made with …

    Almond Meal Sponge Cake

    This is a super simple Sponge Cake made with Almond Meal. It is gluten-free as no Wheat Flour is used, and also dairy-free. No technique is necessary, but you need to beat Eggs very well until thick and pale to make the cake fluffy. The Almond topping is optional. DO NOT add it if you …

    Coconut & Almond Cake (Gluten-Free)

    When I first made this cake, it was to use up a can of Coconut Cream, which I bought by mistake. I often use Coconut Milk for cooking, but not Coconut Cream. Because of the high oil content of Coconut Cream, I didn’t add Butter to this cake. I didn’t add Flour either. I made …

    Quick & Easy Toffee with Nuts

    The other day, when I was making Caramel to make ‘Coffee Creme Caramel’, I realised that I could make ‘Almond Toffee’ much easier. I usually cook Butter and Sugar together until the mixture turns brown, but I could cook just Sugar first, then add Butter and Almonds. I tried to make ‘Almond Toffee’ in that …

    Chocolate Salami (No Egg)

    Here is an old recipe from my recipe notebook. This Chocolate Salami is made with No-Egg and No-Cream. I found the original recipe in a book many years ago, but it didn’t work well. I reduced the amount of Butter. As it was very bitter, I reduced the amount of Cocoa Powder and started adding …

    Leftover Whipped Cream & Yoghurt Bark

    I made Black Forest Cake for my son’s birthday and there was some leftover whipped Cream. To use up leftover whipped Cream, I often make ‘Instant Chocolate Mousse’. This is another good way to use up leftover whipped Cream. Mix about same amount of whipped Cream and Greek Yoghurt, sweeten the mixture as you like, …

    Mashed Potato & Almond Cake

    Sweet Potatoes are often used for making cakes and pies, but ordinary Potatoes are not. I recently leaned that Potatoes are used for sweet cakes in many regions in Europe, so I tried. You can make a sponge cake using just Mashed Potatoes replacing Wheat Flour, but I prefer the cake made with Almond Meal …

    Almond Toffee

    There are very many different recipes for Toffee. Some recipes require a lot of ingredients. I use Sugar and Butter to make Toffee, but I always add Almonds. You can use other nuts such as Pecans, Walnuts OR Peanuts. I don’t want to make a huge amount, because this Toffee is high in calories and …
