I’ve been on a Cypriot cooking bender this week, and it’s safe to say I’m not stopping – especially not with this syrupy, zesty dessert! A traditional pudding, typically made from semolina (but replaced it with polenta so it’s gluten free), with a hearty amount of sugar that makes for an irresistible treat. Although, the orange zest and juice helps to cut through the sweetness, so it’s not saccharine.
Don’t let the lack of gluten-free Ryvita thin option stop you from making your own equally dippable (and also vegan) thins yourself. In under 20 minutes, you can!
An idea I’ve been mulling over for a while now, I combine the zest of two lemons along with a few droplets of natural flavoured lavender to create this delicately floral and supremely spongey loaf cake ideal for spring baking. As with many of my baking recipes, I take inspiration from Ottolenghi’s dessert cookbook ‘Sweet,’ using his lemon and poppyseed loaf cake recipe to inform this FODMAP friendly creation. Instead of double cream, I use Oatly’s completely dairy-free (and vegan) single cream for a hearty sponge.
