Lighter Cream Cheese Caramel Flan

Anyone up for a French/ Portuguese kind of thing today? Left with a tub of leftover cream cheese and the smatterings of some yoghurt which hadn’t been used at the end of a busy week.

Contrasted with dogs, who see… Continue reading Basil Tahini and Carrot Couscous Cakes

This is a cakey, but also dense and moist orange blondie with only 103 calories per slice. That’s… Continue reading Healthy Eggless Orange Blondies

Gingerbread Breadcrumb Loaf

Today’s recipe is a gingerbread breadcrumb loaf cake. Full of gingery goodness, it’s moist, soft and a perfect snack. Another French bread loaf left to go stale and boredom was how this recipe came about. Sitting at home, I had the urge to cook and I felt like feeding my breadcrumb obsession. So cake was made… Continue reading Gingerbread Breadcrumb Loaf
