Banana and Raspberry Walnut Loaf Cake

This banana and raspberry walnut loaf cake gets a big thumbs up from friends and family. I have made lots of versions of banana cake over the years, and love mixing with different ingredients like sultanas, or walnuts or other fruit. This time I made a banana and raspberry walnut loaf cake, and used brown soft sugar instead of demerara sugar which is why it is darker in colour. I love making loaf cakes as they are easy to carry when visiting friends.

Rizogalo homemade rice pudding

 Rizogalo, homemade rice pudding can be enjoyed hot or cold! This is a favourite sweet dessert in my family, especially my yiayia! This is nice for little ones too as it is soft and squishy! It is made with rice, mixed with water or milk and other ingredients such as cinnamon and raisins. Cinnamon and vanilla pods can be added to make it sweet. I used Arborio rice for this which is available in many supermarkets. 

Yummy Lamb Hotpot

Chocolate and cream choux puffs

I have been wanting to make some chocolate and cream choux puffs for a while now but was a little apprehensive about how they would turn out as I have never made them before. I kept the ingredients really simple for this recipe, and would highly recommend using the Just Free self raising flour from Lidl. I have been using this for many of my cakes and sweet treats for a while now and I have to say it is one of my favourite flours to use. The Just Free range is good, and I use the plain flour too.

I spend nearly all of my weekends in London, and love discovering new places to eat out. I usually document all my findings on Instagram, but thought it would be a nice idea to start writing some blogposts about my gluten free findings, if there is anything interesting to write about that is!

Brunching at Côte Brasserie

Cote Brasserie has locations all around the UK, and a few weeks ago, myself and some gluten free buddies enjoyed a lunch at St Katherine’s dock, near Tower Hill, London. I have been a number of times to the Cote Brasserie in Wimbledon, but didn’t realise then that they offered a gluten free menu.
