I love Nutella on toast for breakfast. I have often been found in our kitchen pantry eating it straight from the container with a spoon.
This is a great way to give your kids/husband/partner/wife a yummy chocolate spread on their toast in the morning, without any added sugar.
The first time I served this dairy-free, sugar-free chocolate mousse to my husband I didn’t tell him what the main ingredient was and asked him to try and guess. Long story short, he didn’t have a clue that AVOCADOS are actually the main trickster in this dish.
This is such a simple and quick dessert to whip up if you’re feeling like something sweet after dinner. It’s also great for the kids because it looks and tastes naughty but is just made on avocados, dates, vanilla and carob powder. So it is dairy-free, sugar-free and caffeine-free. NOTHING NAUGHTY THERE. WOO HOO.
On Sunday, I was lucky enough to be asked to go on ABC radio 666 as a guest on their weekly Sunday Brunch program.
The theme was Snap, Crackle and Pop and they had me on for the Cake Of Sunday segment to talk about my egg-free, sugar-free, caffeine-free chocolate cupcakes.
At first when host Lish Fejer and I were discussing all the things the cupcakes DON’T have in them I’m pretty sure she was a bit concerned about whether or not they would actually taste good.
But as you can hear for yourself, Lish and guest DJ Netty from April’s Caravan couldn’t get enough of them.
I love baking. It’s probably one of my favourite things to do in the kitchen. I’m the cake maker in our family and whenever we have a big birthday or celebration I’m always the go-to person to bake for the occasion.
With Molly’s first birthday (and mine – we’re born on the same day) just around the corner (AHHH can it really be that soon?!?!?) I wanted to come up with a cake option that wasn’t loaded with sugar but that still tasted great. I’ve been testing out my recipes at Molly’s childcare and given it’s an egg and nut free centre I wanted to make a cupcake that had no eggs in it so I could try it out with the kids there. I also wanted to create something that almost any child could eat, regardless of allergies.
