The Musette: Channa Masala

For obvious reasons, this month all my recipes will be vegan. This simple recipe is quick and easy to make, yet very tasty. Like me you can make the curry sauce in bulk and freeze some, so that the next time it will take less than… Continue Reading “The Musette: Channa Masala”

The Musette: Lace Snaps

Lace snaps (Florentines without the fruit) earn their name from their delicate and lacy appearance. These thin and crispy biscuits are made of almond flour, brown butter, brown sugar, salt, and vanilla extract. The butter and sugar sizzle as the cookies bake, transforming the… Continue Reading “The Musette: Lace Snaps”

Tiramisu no more

I once spent an entire three week business trip to Milan in search of the best Tiramisù the city had to offer. Yes, I ate the dessert every day in a different restaurant. By far the best examples were those that were quite clearly… Continue Reading “Tiramisu no more”

The Musette: Pasta bake

While my beloved has been home underfoot and requiring three square meals a day, pasta has been a veritable life saver.

The Musette: Toscakaka

This is my spin on the classic Toscakaka, typically a light sponge topped with caramelised almonds. My version uses a moister and denser ground almond based cake, which makes it feel a little more indulgent with a full on almond flavour. Nobody is quite… Continue Reading “The Musette: Toscakaka”
