Orange cottage cheese pudding

My friend’s bake! That was a hyper pleasure to receive this delish bake on a seemingly ordinary day! Thank you Eugenia!!:) The hardest part here is to supreme oranges creating pith-and-membrane-free segments (Eugenia told me that processed only 1 orange since it’s time-consuming). As an alternative you can use preserved orange supremes.        Ingredients 500…

Potato & feta frittata

The basic frittata recipe that works with any vegetables, cheeses and spice. I’ve caught it on my-happyfood.livejournal.com, only simplified and modified in my own way. Many thanks to happyfood for beauty, inspiration and cosiness. And I’m sorry about my abrupt cooperation ending a long ago. Strange things happen.        Ingredients 1 spring onion, finely chopped 4…

Easy coconut cookies

The easiest coconut cookie recipe. They get chewy, so my hint is to use the smallest coconut pieces possible. The finer flakes, the more tender cookies. Also you can add a toasted almond/hazelnut into each cookie. Yield: 25 cookies Ingredients 200 g shredded/grated coconut 100 g sugar 2 egg whites Method Preheat the oven to 200C. Line…

Vegan chocolate rye cookies

It’s one of my fave vegan cookie recipes of all times. These cookies are crumbly and soft due to rye flour. Adding brewed coffee instead of vegetable milk will deliver a slight coffee flavor. Toasted chopped nuts will add crunchiness. Chocolate chips or raisins will make them more chocolaty or sweeter. Sprinkling the cookies with coarse…

Oatmeal carrot cardamom cookies (flourless)

Cherry apple clafoutis

Clafoutis is similar to one whole pancake. One of the easiest desserts that works with any fruit. The batter can be prepared in the evening, and cooked in the morning. I tried skillet-baked cherry clafoutis, just like an omelet. If you lack time, that could be a good option.        Ingredients 300 g cherries,  pitted, drained (fresh/frozen/canned)…

Fruit bread

A feastful fruit bread! Super fragrant, moist, containing lots of mixed dried fruit:) Better slice it when completely cooled and set for a few hours (as on my photo it is still warm, hence almost falling apart. But there was no other chance to photograph it)        Ingredients 110 g corn/olive/vegetable oil 200 g…
