This very moist maple cinnamon cake will make a super addition to your recipe repetoire. It is not only delicious, but very easy to make and freezes beautifully. It is actually an adaptation of a banana cake recipe which I tweaked when I didn’t have any bananas on hand. Even if you do not need to eat gluten free, this cake is fantastic, you could replace the gluten free flour with regular flour if you like. Because this cake freezes so nicely, I like to make one up when I have excess eggs on hand, then cut it in half…

Here’s a lovely old fashioned desert which is very easy to do. You can use any fresh fruit like apples, peaches or even mixed berries. But if you are short on time, a can of fruit will do the trick too! I threw this together in less than ten minutes and it is just the thing for a cosy night in.  If you need to make this gluten free, I suggest using the Aldi  brand of gluten free flour, it is an excellent flour, as well as very economical. Ingredients 1 large can peaches (drained) or 2 cups of fruit of…

This recipe is a wonderful twist on the traditional pavlova.  Although it may appear a bit tricky, it is actually not very difficult to do.  This  makes a great dessert for special occasions, which can be made a day ahead and kept in the fridge.  I may do this for a desert at Christmas, since it looks and tastes spectacular and yet can be prepared ahead.  Despite its fancy appearance, this desert is really very thrifty too, especially since our chickens produced the eggs and we grew the passionfruit in the back yard!  Just a note if you are new…

Winter is a great time to bake a simple yet delicious pudding for the family.  This pudding only takes about 10 minutes to prepare, then just pop it in the oven for a warming treat. It is a very economical recipe probably under $2.00 for the whole thing, but you would never know that by the gooey and delicious result!  I use the Aldi brand gluten free self raising flour, but this recipe will work well with regular flour if you don’t need to eat gluten free. To keep things simple I just estimate the butter and melt it in…

This super easy self saucing pudding makes a lovely desert on a winter night.  I had some opened canned peaches in the fridge and decided to experiment to see if I could use them to make a self saucing pudding, the result was pretty delicious!  I would imagine this would work just as well with any canned fruit you like. This recipe can be prepared really quickly as it is hand mixed in one bowl, then poured over the peaches. A quick way to melt your butter is in a cup in the microwave for 30 seconds. As with most…
