Epic Chocolate Cake
In deciding how to celebrate Eat, Little Bird’s first blog anniversary, chocolate cake instantly came to my mind, but I knew that it had to be a special one.
For quite some years now, my online foodie friends have been raving about what has become known as the “Epic Cake”, so-called because it started out life as a chocolate cake on the Epicurious website, and which was later lovingly adapted by a good online friend who calls herself SamIam.
An Easy Banana Cake recipe which uses yoghurt to make it light and moist, and topped with a generous layer of Cream Cheese Frosting. Perfect for using overripe or frozen bananas.
Easy Banana Cake Recipe
My husband and I tend to agree on most things, but something we cannot convince each other of is the perfect stage of ripeness for a banana. I like my bananas to be somewhat ripe – no hint of green on the peel and maybe just a speckle of brown here and there to indicate that it is good for eating.
Celebrate New Year’s Day with this delicious Greek Vasilopita New Year’s Cake.
Happy New Year everyone!! I hope you have all had a wonderful start to 2016.
We love celebrating New Year’s Day with our Greek friends – a somewhat cosy affair which doubles as a belated Christmas celebration for the little ones but without the stress of Christmas Day itself. In the spirit of Greek family gatherings, there is always an abundance of deliciously-prepared food on offer, and always a Vasilopita – a Greek New Year’s Cake – to celebrate the first day of the year.
My go-to recipe for Hummus which is perfect for dips and entertaining.
Hummus would have to be my go-to dip. It’s quick and easy to make and, what’s more, it’s a very versatile dip. It can be served with vegetable crudités and crackers as an appetiser, spread onto flatbreads to eat as a snack or light meal, or even served as part of a main meal with some grilled lamb koftas and a salad. I make it so often that I tend to keep tins of chickpeas on standby in the pantry so that I can whip up a batch at short notice.
A delicious recipe for Blueberry Lemon Cake using crème fraîche, sour cream or natural yoghurt to produce a fluffy and moist cake. Bake it in a bundt tin to make it extra special!
Blueberry Lemon Cake
Strangely, I have always associated blueberries with muffins. And pancakes. Of course, you can eat them just as they are, as nature intended, but I’m sure most of us are more acquainted with blueberries in cakes and bakes.
