Spiced Cherry Lavash Cake

This is the cake of my childhood – and brings back memories of celebrating birthdays and name days with my family around the table. Most of the time with this very same cake. Traditionally we use ladyfinger biscuits instead of the lavash bread but lately, I was experimenting a lot with my recently most favorite…

Orange & Olive Oil Muffins

Sweet and tangy. Simple yet sophisticated – Sunday morning & Friday night. That was just a few words that described those refreshing (and pretty) summer muffins that are, straightforward – enjoyed more by adults than kids. Strong flavor and aftertaste of olive oil is what makes them insanely delicious, irresistible, and kind of adult-ish. Your…

Mini Pavlovas

Strong espresso, ripe avocado & dark chocolate. Three things I really love to eat. In this recipe, I combined all of them together to create this heavenly good, moist and gluten-free chocolate cake. This cake is a kind of brownie that is rich in taste, moist and not oversweetened. It is coconut oil and coffee that…

Gluten-Free Walnut, Cherry & Chocolate Cake

This is an ultimate luscious and luxury cake great for any occasion. I have to admit that this cake does not belong to the category of simple and fast prepared recipes. I recommend to bake this cake when you have more time, you are not in a rush and when you want to prepare something…
