    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 …

    Fruit Tart

    I made this Fruit Tart for my daughter’s birthday on her request. She changed her mind later and asked for Profiteroles, but I made it anyway. It looks complicated to make, but each element is simple. If you use store-bought Frozen Sweet Fran/Pie Base, it’s really easy to make. Today I used my Basic Shortcrust …

    Gluten-Free Rice Flour & Almond Meal Cookies

    I sometimes bake Cookies and Cakes for the staff members of a tool shop where my husband works. Some of the members are with gluten intolerance. I made these Cookies for them. I used finely ground Rice Flour, that is widely available from Asian grocery stores. It is much cheaper than Gluten-Free Flour, that is …

    Cornflakes Florentines

    This is what is known as Florentines in Australia. It’s very different from what is known as Florentines in Japan. It seems ‘Cornflakes’ is the key ingredient here in Australia. The method is simple. Combine Condensed Milk and Cornflakes, and add Dry Fruit and Nuts. Then bake in the oven at rather low temperature. Finally, …

For the base, you can use your own cookie dough or sweet shortcrust dough. There are so many different recipes and methods these days. Many people roll out the dough …

    When I want to use up leftover Egg White, I often make ‘Langues de Chat’ Biscuits. Ingredients are easy to remember. You need same weight of 4 ingredients, that are Egg White, Butter, Sugar and Flour. Today I added Almond Flakes and baked the whole mixture into one large sheet. You can easily break it …
