Almond and Blackcurrant Drizzle Cake

Another day, another cake? Mais oui!!

Yesterday a friend of mine came for a slice of cake and brought with her a punnet of blackcurrants that had arrived in her fruift and veg delivery box. “Ijay, these came in my box, I thought you’ll know something nice to do with them”. I had a little taste and thought, “wowww that’s tangy” and when in doubt? Bake a cake, bien sûr!

So these are her blackcurrants and they are now sitting in a rather delicious cake. You know sometimes you bake a cake and you’re like, “Ohh that nice” but this, now that’s what I call REALLY REALLY nice. If you’ve got blackcurants, oh may I introduce you to this luscious number. Bake it!

Enjoy.

For black currant syrup:

Almond ‘n’ Banana Pudding Cake with Blackberry studs (Vegan)

Still in the bid to use up ingredients in my kitchen and make simple cakes, today we have a pudding cake from the bananas in the fridge.

So moreish on the inside it deserves a generous amount of cream to go with it. The best bit are these tart blackberries atop the cake that help to cut through the sweetness of the bananas. What’s not to love?

Remember if you live close by and wanna take some home with you, hit me up on Facebook and I’ll save a slice (or more) for you. A girl can only eat soo many cakes!

Thank you all.

Smokey AuberDip

All you'll need

All you’ll need

We had Aubergine in our delivery box last week so I had to use it to do something when the week was running out. End of the week, feeling a little knackered to cook anything for dinner but want something yummy all the same? Grab these ingredients and you’ve got yourself a super smokey, super easy, super yummy and super duper dip.

I got the inspiration from the sweet Abel and Cole’s cookbook but have changed it as there isn’t any garlic, tahini, lemon but thought to add the onion and tomato instead. Et voilà, just these few ingredients and you’re good to go.

Enjoy dipping.

For this, you’ll need:

  • A whole Aubergine
  • A whole tomato, cut in half
  • Half an Onion
  • 1/4 tsp of smoked Paprika
  • Glugs of Olive oil
  • Salt to taste

To make: Continue reading
