I have an admission to make: I eat cake for breakfast… not any cake, but these wonderful gluten- and dairy-free mug cakes. They consist primarily of fruit and an egg, and are “baked” in the microwave. Continue reading
Wow. I haven’t eaten something that resembles bread for a loooong time. I don’t miss bready things, so I guess I am one of the fortunate ones. However, after seeing this recipe, I was really curious to try what these muffins tasted like. They were pretty good, especially with jam (or butter and jam, if you can eat dairy). Continue reading
One weekend, A’s folks invited us over for brunch. I brought along this delicious cake for myself, since I’m weird that way… Everyone else had Eggs Benedict, while I was quite happily stuffing my face with this loaf and fresh fruit. This cake is moist, lightly coconutty, with a wonderful aroma of zesty lemon. Continue reading
Quiche can be a little bit of a challenge when feeding someone who is gluten-free, dairy-free and meat-free… that’s when this recipe comes to the rescue.
My previous favorites were ham, mushrooms and lots of mature Cheddar; roasted red peppers with goat cheese, and smoked salmon with broccoli.
As time moved on, my quiche evolved. Here the pastry/crust from brown and Continue reading
You know, I had never heard of “coffee cake” before I moved to the US. When I tried it, I did wonder why on earth it didn’t taste like coffee, just as the name stated. I later realized that they were called coffee cake because they are meant to be eaten with coffee. But this cake is so good, you can enjoy it for breakfast, brunch, lunch or dinner. Continue reading
My sister gifted me this awesome hob (stove-top) waffle iron for Christmas. I was excited because I could finally make and eat waffles without worrying about the gluten-ified electric waffle iron. I went online to hunt for a suitable paleo-friendly and dairy-free waffle recipe. This is pretty much it… these waffles are simple to make and are sweetened ripe bananas. They are soft and spongy, making them perfect to sop up lots of syrup (if you’re that way inclined). Continue reading
These muffins are packed full of fiber and juicy blueberries. They are great for snacking, lunch or breakfast. They have a wonderful depth in flavor from the molasses with just the right amount of sweetness. For maximum nutritional benefit from the blueberries, use wild grown if you can find them. Continue reading
The last time I made Danish pastries was for my birthday in 2009. This was about a year before honeyandspice was born. In fact, I had blogged about it in my private blog back then. Time got the best of me, and I hadn’t revisited this recipe for over 4 years!!! The photos I had then were pretty crude. Also, my cooking skills weren’t nearly as honed in as they are now.
I’d been planning to make Danish pastries again for some time now. In fact, I made homemade cherry jam especially for cherry Danishes (A’s favorite). The cherry jam had been sitting in the freezer since summer 2012! Continue reading
Finally, a pancake that I love! They are free of gluten, refined sugar, dairy and gums! They are soft, nutty, sweet, incredibly moreish and perfect with lashings of maple syrup. They aren’t as fluffy as other pancakes, but I don’t care about that, because to me, they are perfect! Continue reading
Yes, I know, yet another gluten-, dairy-, gum- and psyllium-free pancake recipe.
Unfortunately, it’s not the best pancake recipe in the world. It has been included into my blog for completeness… one day, I’ll get it right. It’s definitely not a recipe I’d endorse because there’s just something not quite right about them. I’ve made them twice, and they are just so dry. When I mean dry, I mean if you dare eat one on its own with no syrup, you will most likely choke on them…they really are _THAT_ dry. It’s like eating a bucket of sand, but with flavor. I later read somewhere that millet flour has a tendency of making goods dry… d’uh, now you tell me! In my defense, I am new to this gluten-free “baking” malarkey. Continue reading
I am so excited: I can now have blueberry pancakes! These gluten- and dairy-free pancakes are awesome… a wonderful change from the last couple of gluten-free pancake recipes that I tried. Those were pretty bad. I tried them twice, and each time was as bad as the last.
From what I’ve read about gluten-free pancakes/muffins, no gums etc are usually needed to hold the batter together. However, I had two fall apart on me when flipping, so I added a little psyllium, let the batter sit for a bit, and then tried again. They remainder of the pancakes were easy to flip and cooked perfectly.
These pancakes taste like soft oatmeal cookies… warm, oaty, cinnamony, with Continue reading
Cinnamon rolls? Ermmmm, yes! Big, plump, pillowy-soft, gooey cinnamon rolls? Yes please, sign me up!
I just did a quick search on honeyandspice to see if I had written this recipe up yet, and to my disbelief, the answer is no. I made this recipe about a year ago, and I have been depriving the world of wonderful soft bread with cinnamony goodness! For this I apologize, please forgive me.
Cinnamon has a certain aroma that is hard to resist. When spiraled with brown sugar and butter in soft white bread, it becomes even more Continue reading
