coconut lemon cake

Coconut lemon cake (gluten and sugarfree)

I made coconut cake before and I made coconut macaroons before. Both super yummy recipes. But this coconut lemon cake is a whole other level. Super moist, fluffy and a nice zing of fresh lemon and zest. It does require a little more effort than the usual cakes I make. But sieving the flours and whipping up the egg whites… Read more →

If you’re looking for an easy and tasty gluten free cake, look no further. This coconut cake is really easy to make and has only 9 ingredients – that’s including the chocolate glaze.

I’m always in a way better mood when I’ve had some sunlight and have way more energy. And visiting the farmers market is way more appealing… Read more →

Roti Kukus (and memories)

Yeaaaah! Happy dance in the kitchen with my mouth full. Finally I can have Roti Kukus again. I missed it so much. And it tastes awesome. Roti Kukus is a steamed Indonesian cake. Roti means bread and you can eat it like bread with a little butter on top. I used to have it as a teenager on Sundays, when visiting my grandparents. My grandma… Read more →

Carrotcake round top with carrot

Carrot cake (vegan and sugar free)

Unfortunately I didn’t grow up with carrot cake. There was no such thing as a carrot cake here in Holland when I was a child.
