Cocoa Fudge Cake

Remember when I baked this Banana Bread, imagining it to be something Mad Men’s Betty Draper would have stashed away? Back then, I was binge-watching episodes of Mad Men when it aired late in the night. A strange thing

Cherry Pie

When it comes to Cherry Pie, I prefer using fresh and seasonal cherries and an all-butter crust made from scratch! The slightly tart cherries, turn syrupy and sweet, plus a flaky buttermilk crust…. have I got you drooling already? Plus, it’s an all-vegetarian pastry crust!

Jamun Buttermilk Cake

The arrival of the Jamun season announces itself with little purple stains on my car around the months of May – June. These berries that are native to India and are falsely translated as Indian blackberries, are packed with all the good stuff to lower your glycemic index, so it’s a tad bit ironic th

Roasted Plum Buttermilk Cake

This is no ordinary Buttermilk Cake, it’s moist with a tender crumb and has no butter. Instead, it is made with flavourless canola oil. The combination of buttermilk and oil is what sets this cake apart! And since fresh fruits are my favourite to work with, I’ve roasted some fresh plums with some brown sugar to extract maximum flavour! Forget cobblers and crumbles, this is how you’ll want to eat fresh plums when they are in season!
