A simple soy and ginger dipping sauce

This is a dish for those who love all things tasty with chilli, soy, ginger and more. The flavours are apologetically strong. Sensitive souls should look elsewhere.

Rhubarb and apple crumble - too good to leave

Super healthy apple-rhubarb crumble

This crumble is our easy-to-make dessert of choice. The tartness of the rhubarb is offset by the sweetness of the apple, so you don’t need to add any extra sugar to the filling. The crumb is a mixture of oats, coconut, honey and olive oil, whizzed in the food processor for just a few seconds.

Cinnamon honey cake

Cinnamon honey cake (egg-free)

The combination of honey and cinnamon in this cake fools a lot of people into looking for the ginger. There is no ginger, but they still all love it anyway. The egg-free version opens it up to a wider audience, especially in settings where you might have children with egg allergies running around.

The other good thing about this cake is that it takes about 10 minutes to mix and half an hour to bake, making it useful for those “Oh no, I need a cake for today!” moments.

Siena panforte

Siena panforte

Panforte throws together two Italian words: pane (bread) +‎ forte (strong). This Christmas cake is certainly that. It’s delicious and rich. A very small slice goes very well with coffee or tea after dinner or a late afternoon tea. Best of all (for us) is that it is egg-free.
