Pumpkin Pie (Gluten Free)


In the spirit of Halloween I decided to make pumpkin pie last weekend.

For those unfamiliar with the pie, it’s a traditional sweet dessert made in the United States and Canada at Halloween, Thanksgiving and Christmas.

Now one of my favourites, I thought I should share it with you all.

Thanks for stopping by.

Persian Love Cake (Gluten Free)

Persian Love Cake

These past few weeks I’ve been meaning to share a new recipe on my blog. After numerous birthday parties, a wedding, baby shower and even an ice skating competition, I finally bring to you Persian Love Cake.

I stumbled across this cake in a cafe a few years ago and immediately went in search for the recipe. I can honestly say I have never tasted a cake quite like this one.

So I decided to make it last week for my boss’s birthday because a) I wanted to make something other than your stock standard chocolate cake and b) it tastes great.

Thanks for reading and let me know what you think if you end up baking it?!

Double Chocolate Espresso Brownies (Gluten Free)

Six months ago I got hooked on coffee. It started one weekend with Jesse and I strolling down to our local cafe to taste their signature iced coffee. It now consists of a weekly visit for a latte – a drink I had never tried until this year.

So in honour of my new found tastebuds and all coffee lovers out there, I made these Double Chocolate Espresso Brownies.

P.S. If you’re a non-coffee drinker, never fear. The double chocolate in these brownies is bound to win you over with only a hint of coffee.

Chocolate and Salted Caramel Layer Cake (Gluten Free)


Birthdays have always been an important event in my family. Celebrations over lunch/dinner with presents and cake are a must.

Just like Christmas it’s not about the presents, but we love a good good excuse to show our loved ones how special they are.

So naturally when Jesse and I started going out (aka dating) I felt the need to show him how you really celebrate a birthday. In the past this has included gifts like lego and a Playstation for the child at heart; but most importantly, a new birthday cake each year.

Last year it was a lemon curd cheesecake which was pretty good if I do say so myself. This year Jesse requested a chocolate and salted caramel layer cake. So here it is – hope you like it!

Lemon Curd Slice (Gluten Free)


After a few busy weeks I finally got back into the kitchen on the weekend and made a gluten free version of Meyer lemon bars, or “slice” as we call it in Australia.

These bite size treats have been on my todo/bake list for a while now and they didn’t disappoint.

If you like the tangy sweetness of lemon curd you might also like the Lemon Curd Cheesecake I made for Jesse’s birthday last year or these Lime Lamingtons I made for Australia Day with a lime curd filling.

Hope you had a lovely weekend. Thanks for stopping by.
