Scrumptious Chocolate & Pear Tarts | Glutenfree * Dairyfree * Eggfree

Chocolate Pear Tart Gluten Dairy Egg free - Vegan - Crostatine cioccolato senza glutine

These scrumptious creamy chocolate tarts have been a real unexpected hit! 
After succeeding in making my gluten/dairy/egg-free version of the Italian “kissing” cookies Baci di Dama, I thought maybe I could use a similar dough to make mini tarts, or actually I was kind of obsessing over making them with chocolate and pear, because I LOVE pear and chocolate together. And I know I’m not alone here.

CHOCOLATE & ORANGE GLAZED BUNDT CAKE | Glutenfree * Dairyfree * Eggfree

Gluten free vegan chocolate orange glazed cake

So here we are with the last of my three ideas for the holidays menu and I won’t hide it: as much as I love the two savory dishes I previously posted (creamy baked pasta and veggie casserole), I couldn’t wait to get to the dessert. 
As it happens pretty much with every meal, that is. Sometime I would have dessert even after breakfast. Yes I’m that bad.
And the fact I love cakes and chocolate and citrus fruits and this one has them all in each bite, might have a lot to do with my  enthusiasm for this recipe too.
But let’s get to chocolaty business, my dear:

FLUFFY COCOA CAKE WITH AQUAFABA | Glutenfree * Dairyfree * Eggfree


As you can see from my previous post I have been experimenting with Aquafaba recently and when the other day I managed to get a fluffy batter out of it, I decided to use it to bake a simple cocoa cake.
Truth be told, I didn’t know what to expect. I was bracing myself for a total failure, like the cake wouldn’t cook and I’d witness some sort of sad soggy baked pudding in a pan, ready for its journey from the oven to the trash bin. But …

APPLE, RAISINS & CINNAMON SQUARES | Glutenfree * Dairyfree * Eggfree * Cornfree

Apple raisins cinnamon squares gluten dairy free

A while back my colleague brought to the office a delicious apple cake, a bit different from the usual, with little flour, lots of apple pieces and just the right hint of cinnamon. I asked her for the recipe, which was neither glutenfree, nor eggfree. So I thought: alright. Challenged accepted. *Mission Impossible’s theme playing in the background* (Yes my mind does these things sometimes, please bear with me)

APPLE & CINNAMON PANCAKES | Glutenfree * Dairyfree * Eggfree

So, Fall is literally a few hours away and I thought I’d welcome it with the recipe for apple and cinnamon pancakes 🙂
We start by mixing in a cup the flaxseed with the water and let it rest a few minutes until it gets a jello-ish look.
Then wisk it together with all the ingredients except the apple, which you will peel, remove the core and cut the apple into think discs.
