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:

MY GO-TO CASHEW SAUCE | Glutenfree * Dairyfree

easy homemade cashew cheese sauce

If you’ve been following me for a while, you will know that my free-from cooking experiments come from my wish to make my food-sensitive boyfriend’s eating a bit tastier (and the blog came to share this with you all). He’s been eating dairy-free for years and years, but I too have decided to cut down drastically on dairy products and products containing dairy ingredients, for two reasons: I’ve already known for years that drinking milk is a no-no for me (and that was confirmed this past summer when I had a couple icecream-slushes and felt sick right after, both times) and I wanted to see if my acne-prone skin would go better without dairy and all the hormones in it. And since I saw positive results within a month, I’ve kept going 😉

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)
