Notes about Recipes in this book

  • Clementine cake

    • ncollyer on March 06, 2021

      This turned out very well. Moist and tasty. Baked in springform pan as there was too much batter for my regular cake pan.

  • Chamomile cake with honey crème fraîche

    • Charlotte_vandenberg on September 26, 2021

      Excellent cake! Very moist cake with a nice fresh touch of crème fraîche.

  • Peanut butter banana bread

    • Lepa on December 08, 2021

      This is a really nice banana bread. I was half way through making it before I realized it didn't have any eggs. I was a bit worried, especially as I mixed the very dense dough. But it is a lovely, rich cake with a plush, chewy texture. We all really liked it. Note: I used whole milk because I didn't have almond or soy milk on hand.

  • Hazelnut & tahini caramel cake

    • Lepa on November 20, 2021

      The icing and caramel for this cake were outstanding. The cake part was not sweet, which went well with the sweet icing.

  • Pecan & burnt honey cake

    • leilx on August 18, 2021

      Loved this cake.

  • Lemon, ricotta & thyme mini-loaves

    • Robolovesfood on October 20, 2020

      This recipe got rave reviews from my friends. They are ready for me to make it again.

  • Fig, blackberry & tahini cake

    • Laurel21 on September 09, 2021

      I made them for my 50th birthday, it's delicious! I made them individual and swapped the blackberries for raspberries. It was difficult for me to unmold, so next time I will do it in a large mold with silicone paper.
