Vegan Gluten-free Lemon Cake I’ve been posting way too many chocolate recipes recently, and even though I could never get fed up of chocolate, I realise that you might! It was about time I share a recipe with 0% chocolate, like this zingy, zesty vegan gluten-free lemon cake.  Spring is the perfect time for making citrusy light treats. I’ve been meaning to create …

I’m not going to argue that Christmas pudding is probably one of the perfect traditional post-Christmas dinner desserts; However, it does take hours to make yourself. Of course you always have the option of buying a ready made Christmas pudding which will most likely be full of sugars and additives. I’m not saying you shouldn’t indulge, but if you would prefer a healthier treat that you can make at home in less than 15 minutes, then I’ve got you covered.

Last year I made a healthier version of my favourite cookies – Kleicha (كليجة) which are Iraqi date cookies that are traditionally served on Eid (A religious holiday to celebrate the end of the month of Ramadan where muslims fast from sun rise to sun set for a whole month). Even though I loved the version I made last year, I wanted to outdo myself by making an even better and healthier version!

Vanilla Matcha Cupcakes When given the option, I would always choose a muffin over a cupcake. To me, cupcakes are usually dry and have little flavour and the frosting is way to sweet and sickly. Am I the only who thinks this? Hmm probably! Muffins on the other hand are usually dense, rich and bursting with flavour! I wanted to …

Whenever it’s someone’s birthday I’m in a dilemma; do I attempt to make a healthy cake? What if the birthday boy or girl doesn’t like it? What if it doesn’t turn out the way I expect it to? Should I take the risk? All these questions go through my mind and most of the time they put me off trying to bake a healthy birthday cake.
