Flourless Chocolate Cake (Gluten, Grain, Nut & Dairy Free)

If you have not noticed by now, there is only one whole cake recipe here. There are a handful of baking recipes but I try not to venture into cakes. Baking is not one of my strengths when it comes to inventing healthy, gluten and/or dairy free recipes, and every time the cake ended up being the casualty because I have forgotten baking is not easy.

Flourless chocolate cake has been on my baking list for a while (having pinned a dozen of flourless chocolate cake recipes). I was all pumped up to make one for the year end celebration with my awesome new Tefal Kitchen Machine and having dreamt about blogging how easy the recipe was and how amazing the cake is.

4-ingredient Flourless Peanut Butter Cookie (Gluten & Dairy Friendly)

I have a sweet tooth and am a big snack eater. Something is just not turned on this year. The only thing I felt like making is this deliciously chewy (and healthy) Flourless Peanut Butter Cookies.

Baileys Banana Chocolate Ice Cream – The Easiest Chocolate Ice Cream

Baileys Banana Chocolate Ice Cream

Baileys Banana Chocolate Ice Cream. This is the world’s easiest ice cream. It takes literally 5 minutes to put together, only 4 ingredients and the best – without an ice cream maker! *happy dance*

Using good quality chocolate makes a big difference in the flavour, use either chocolate bar like Lindt or couverture chocolate such as Callebaut. The banana gives the ice cream a smooth, creamy consistency and provides the sweetness, so use a nice, ripe one. The ice cream keeps for weeks in the freezer with perfect smooth consistency.

No Bake Ricotta Cheesecake Bites with Pecan Base

Every now and then, I do crave for rich & creamy desserts like cheesecakes. When I do come across recipes I like, I try to make the recipes lighter & healthier. The baked cheesecake requires patience (which I don’t have when it comes to baking) and lots of spare time. This is a quick and simple no-bake dessert that is slightly healthier, that you would happily indulge. And doesn’t these No Bake Ricotta Cheescake Bites with Pecan Base and colourful toppings make a pretty dessert? Continue Reading →
