Orange flavoured cake must have been the first cake I learned to make from my mother and then my daughter learned this cake from me as well. A few days ago I read at Life’s feast a Blood Orange Yoghurt Cake and although I never used to like blood oranges (probably from the name) I […]

This recipe started when I had a very ripe banana to use.  At first I thought to make some cupcakes and noticed that I did not have any eggs at home so I remembered my vegan cupcakes I made during Lent but still since I did not have some of the other ingredients as well,  […]

How would you feel if your birthday was during Lent and you could not have a Birthday Cake?  Unfortunately this is something I had to face many times as apart from my birthday, my daughter’s birthday is a few days before mine and my son’s is exactly a month after mine, so in all three […]
