Vegan or Egg Free Brownie Cookies

These cookies were delicious straight out of the oven and also the next day after I stored them in the fridge. They were chewier the next day., and that’s how I personally prefer them. I added dark chocolate chunks, I think would be good with goji berries or or those dried tart cherries. I had...

Sticky Date Pudding with Poached Pears

Warm, sticky and gooey ginger goodness mixed with caramel. Perfect for a autumn or winters evening. You dont need to add the pears (poached or added into the cake) I didn’t the first time I made it. This recipe has a lot less sugar than a normal sticky date pudding BUT i find that the...

Feijoa Cake with Crumble Topping

Here is a recipe for an abundance of feijoas or some that you have that are just not ripe enough. I had about 8 medium sized. Make a crumble topping with whatever mix of nuts and coconut you have in your pantry. Mine was made up of approx. 70g ground almonds, 30g shredded coconut and cinnamon...

Peaches and Custard Cake

This is another idea I nicked off the Bite.co.nz website. I used peaches instead of apricots due to having some over ripe ones on hand, and our vanilla mix instead of the dry ingredients. I had no idea on how this would turn out as you add custard to the cake before you cook it…..it...

Apricot and Spice Cake

Thank you VIVA for this delicious cake inspiration. The smells when this is baking is mouth watering. You could probably do this with any stone fruit you have. I have baked it two ways, one with dairy and one without. I found using a dark coloured sugar made the sauce and cake a lot browner...

Stonefruit Loaves

This idea was inspired by a DISH recipe for a plum pound loaf. I made it two ways just to see how it worked. One with creamed butter and the other just with the original oil, egg and water combo from the back of the vanilla box. I did the butter one with a mix...

Trifle. Great for Christmas or if you break a cake

This year I decided to healthify the classic Christmas trifle. I grew up with my baba (grandmother) making trifle for Xmas and I never ate it. Not sure why…maybe the jelly never appealed. BUT I loved this trifle! It’s something you can make in advance, making Christmas day just that little bit easier and relaxed.This...

Gingerbread With Sticky Salted Caramel Icing

I couldn’t resist recreating this after seeing it pop up on the Dish Magazine Instagram account. As you know I have a fondness for the ginger zing and this dessert certainly has a ginger kick! You will need a box of our Paleo Ginger Baking Mix for this little beauty. I have used our gingerbread recipe...

Chocolate raspberry brownie cake

I nicked this idea out of the Gourmet Traveller (great mag) and adapted it to fit my mix. It’s perfect for Easter or anytime you want a hit of rich gorgeous chocolate tart/brownie/cake, I can’t quite decide what it is. I have kept it simple, you can’t really stuff it up. Little baking ability required,...
