Vegan Dark Chocolate with Salt Flakes

This chocolate only takes approximately 5 minutes to make and requires only 5 ingredients. If you’re a fan of darker, less sweet chocolates, it will definitely hit that chocolate craving spot, while still being very clean, ingredients wise. It’s super low in sugar content too, a little splash of maple syrup is all you’ll need….

Almond and Cranberry Biscotti

Growing up in Slovenia, being surrounded by many countries with such rich food traditions definitely has many perks, as many of them are only a short drive away. Italy, with all its goodness, is definitely one of them, and being able to finish a meal with some crunchy almond biscotti… These biscuits are so comforting…

Sourdough Hot Cross Buns

Easter has come and gone so this recipe is coming a bit too late, but as we are all spending a lot of the extra time we have on our hands at home, and because these are also absolutely delicious, there is nothing wrong making them pretty much any time of the year. It was…

Vegan Banana Bread

This recipe ticks many boxes for a sweet and indulgent yet quite healthy and wholesome breakfast. It is vegan but you can easily substitute some vegan ingredients for their non-vegan equivalents if you do wish so. Even though it is made mainly from ingredients considered healthy and contains very little sugar and added oil it…

Chai Cake

This one was probably the only cake I’ve made that came from having a design that someone has requested and me trying to figure out how to recreate it best I can. I knew there have to be dehydrated coloured pears on the outside and chai as the main flavour. As it is my usual…

Buckwheat and Cocoa Biscuits

Besides being such a festive month December is also a month when, at least in Slovenia, biscuits are being baked even in homes they usually aren’t. Consequentally there is a lot of them going around and a lot of them being eaten. And of course the crunchy, buttery, sweet ones are lovely but after a…

“Concrete” cake

Before returning back to Slovenia and getting back to all the whisking, piping and scraping that a cake requires, I wanted to refresh my caking skills and see some of that lovely Australian sharp edges being crafted on one in action. Luckily, one of the most inspiring cake decorators, creating under the brand The Don’t…

Vanilla Crescents

  Summer may be in full swing here in Australia, but if this is the first December, January, February etc.  you’ve spent living on the Southern hemisphere it’s hard to completely forget the little winter notions these months bare. And one of those traditions are definitely these almond/vanilla crescent cookies. Covered in the little bits of icing…

Mermaid Cake

Finally got those marble macaroons right, and what better way than to put them on a cake with turquoise marble drip. Chocolate cake, dark chocolate and raspberry filling, dark chocolate mousse on the outside and white chocolate turqoise colored drip. And the macaroons? Dark chocolate ganache, to make them nice and firm to decorate this…

The Best Autumn Crumble Ever

Vanilla Ice-Cream With Toppings

The days were nice, warm and sunny. There was lavender blooming in our garden and the apricots on our trees were getting nice and ripe. Thanks to my friend who takes frequent trips to Madagascar and then showers me with the most amazing vanilla beans ever, the drawer was still packed with them and well, what better way…
