Karen’s Chestnut Flour and Honey Rosemary Cake with Pine Nuts

Good ole Kaz again.  It’s starting to get creepy, I know..

I made this unusual cake tonight and the flavour’s kinda hard to explain.  The chestnut flour gives a lovely full, rich flavour and the rosemary gives it some savouriness (?) but it’s good alright.  I thought it wouldn’t be something the kids would come at, but they both loved it.  I served the kids with a dollop of yoghurt and drizzled with honey and ours with crème fraîche.  You only need a small piece, so it’ll last the week, which is great.READ MORE

Passover

Jewish Orange and Almond Cake

I’m told this is a classic Passover dessert.  It’s a beautiful recipe with very few ingredients which produces a lovely moist cake to enjoy with a cuppa.  It uses whole oranges, boiled and then pulped in the food processor which gives the cake a lovely tang.  I’ve seen a few different versions of this type of orange cake lately, but this recipe is so simple, it will definitely be a repeat offender at our place.  READ MORE

Banana Bread

Why is it that when you feel like a banana, there’s none left and when you have some in the house they are left to go brown!?  When I have three or four overripe bananas, I think of this yummy banana bread (which is really more like cake – I’m not sure why they call it ‘bread’).  READ MORE

Melopita (honey cake)

Sometimes I can’t get ricotta at the deli and end up having to buy a whole kilo from the cheese fridge at the supermarket.  If you find yourself with way too much ricotta, this is a great way to use it up.  It’s a really quick, easy and delicious little Greek cheese cake that’s kind of like a flan.  The cinnamon and honey add a great twist.  READ MORE
