Middle Eastern orange cake with spiced syrup (gluten and dairy free)

We’ve all had a moment when we need to create something sweet for our gluten and/or dairy free guests…. and sometimes it’s difficult to know where to start? Well here is your answer.

I always receive great feedback on my Flourless Chocolate Orange cake at parties (it is also dairy free!)… so I thought it about time I post a variation I created last November…

I was a bit bored with always turning to the same dessert option for my gluten and dairy free buddies, so here is a twist on the same recipe. As you can see in the photo, it can also be served up as individual desserts for a more ‘gourmet’ dining experience.

Spiced apple crepes

Wouldn’t you love to wake up to these on your rostered-day-off?

I served these up for my husband last week when he was home on a week day. I tried to keep them as healthy as possible – using fruit as the filling, wholemeal flour in the crepes, and natural yoghurt instead of cream/ice-cream as a topping… here’s the recipe:

Italian Spiced Figs

It took a visit from mum for me to realise there was a fig tree in our back garden. I’m not completely ignorant to plants, but our rental has a rather large garden (it got lost behind the gum trees), and I have been pregnant the entire time we had lived in the house, so haven’t been getting out into the garden as much.

The fig season was around the time Heidi was born (March/April), however for some reason our figs ripened a little later than that.
