My Favorite Recipes
Hot Out The Oven
This pumpkin coffee cake has a soft and light crumb with swirls of pumpkin spice running throughout. Its streusel topping adds a sweet crunch, with fall flavours in each bite. The cake can easily be made dairy free too! Enjoy with a hot cup of coffee!
This pumpkin swirl cheesecake is the perfect fall-inspired dessert. It’s smooth, rich, and creamy with warm, spiced flavours and pockets of pumpkin. Not to mention it has a crisp graham cracker crust (that we all love).
This pumpkin banana bread is the perfect fall treat that combines the best of both worlds – the comforting sweetness of bananas and the earthy richness of pumpkin. It’s moist, mildly sweet and has a slight crunch with pumpkin seeds scattered throughout.
These thin homemade flatbreads are soft and chewy with a light, neutral flavour. They make a great addition to use as a base for pizzas, wrapped around fillings for sandwiches or wraps, or served as a side dish alongside dips and spreads.
These simple sweet apricot cardamom mini cakes are as cute as can be. They are buttery, sweet, tart and full of warmth from the ground cardamom. This creates the perfect balance between fruity sweetness and exotic spice.
Ripe, plump plums take centre stage in this super easy plum oat crisp. Their natural sweetness is enhanced by rich brown sugar and a hint of all-spice. On top of the juicy filling is a crunchy oat topping – a blend of oats, butter, brown sugar and pecans – creating a balance of textures that’s as delightful to the palate as it is pleasing to the eye. You’re going to love this easy recipe!
