Bites from other Blogs

  • Food Blogga‘s Banana Apple Cardamom Cake with Cardamom Icing sounds like it might be a simple cake – and it is easy to make – but it is far from simple where flavor is involved. The cake includes lots of spices, vanilla, honey, shredded coconut, coconut milk, raisins, apples and nuts. It has something for just about everyone, and the nice thing about it is that you won’t really realize this until you cut into the cake.
  • Granola makes a great addition to a batch of chocolate chip cookies. It adds a lot of flavor and more crunch that you might get from additions like toasted nuts alone. Dandy Sugar‘s Granola Cookies with Toasted Coconut, Almonds, and Chocolate have a lot of other great flavors on top of the granola, too. The coconut and almonds add a lot of nuttiness, and this is going to be even better if the granola you choose to work with incorporates some of these flavors already.
  • You don’t have to miss out on scones entirely if you need to stick to a gluten-free diet. The Chocolate Chip Scones that Gluten Free Goddess whipped up are made with sorghum flour, millet flour and tapioca starch. They’re a bit more cake-like and crumbly than your average gluten free scone because these are also vegan, so there is no egg in the recipe as a binder, but they still make a warm, satisfying addition to breakfast with a cup of hot coffee or tea.
  • I usually bake biscuits to use as a base for my strawberry shortcakes, but I’m not opposed to using other types of cake as a base for this lovely summery dessert. Comfy Belly uses a moist, almond cupcake for the base of these Strawberry Shortcakes. The cupcakes are turned upside down and sliced in half horizontally, before being filled with creme fraiche and fresh berries. It is light, sweet and the presentation is great. You could mix it up with different flavors of cupcakes, as well.
  • Maple fans will want to mix up Not Derby Pie‘s Maple Yogurt Pound Cake straight away. This ultra-moist cake uses flavorful grade-B maple syrup as its primary sweetener and uses yogurt to add a subtle tanginess and moisture to the cake. It’s a simple cake that whips up in a single bowl, so you can make it on short notice and enjoy the smell of that maple syrup filling your kitchen while the cake bakes.
