    Yoghurt Scones

    My family’s consumption of Yoghurt has dropped after we stopped eating Granola, that is a very high calorie food. I have been making Greek Yoghurt at home for many years, but I must say I have to stop making it as nobody is eating it. The reason why I made these Yoghurt Scones was simple. …

    100% Oats Bread with Apple & Sultana Raisins

    It seems my family members have been enjoying 100% Oats Bread. Today I added Apple and Sultana Raisins, and made it slightly sweeter.

    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 …

    Custard Puff Pastry Twists

    There is a baked pastry called ‘Escargot’ and I love it. The one that a local bakery is selling has Custard and Sultanas in it. These ‘Puff Pastry Twists’ are inspired by the bakery’s ‘Escargot’. It takes only a few minutes to make the Custard in the microwave. Using store-bought Frozen Butter Puff Pastry, these …

    Easter ‘Pampushky’

    ‘Pampushky’ are Ukrainian Bread Rolls. They can be savoury OR sweet, and baked OR deep-fried. As the ‘Jam Filled ‘Pampushky’ that I made the other day were so good, today I used the same dough to make these Easter ‘Pampushky’. They are almost same as Hot Cross Buns, but the texture is similar to Doughnuts. …

    Cold Stewed Apple Dessert

    Some Apples were turning wrinkly and I stewed them. I stored the stewed Apple in the fridge. On a hot day, I ate the chilled stewed Apple with leftover whipped Cream and Vanilla Ice Cream. As I always have a jar of Rum-steeped Sultanas, I poured some over the Ice Cream. And it was bloody …

    Butter Bean Paste Stuffed Puffs

    I often use canned Butter Beans for sweets as the sweetened Butter Bean Paste tastes very similar to Japanese ‘Shiro-an’ (Sweet White Bean Paste). Just like Sweet Azuki (Red Bean) Paste, it is a great filling for Buns, Rolls, Cakes and Pies. Today I added Cocoa, Sultanas and Walnuts, and simply sandwiched the mixture with …
