Fresh Cranberry, Orange and Almond Cake

 

As I still had some orange marmalade, from last weeks’ chicken dish, I thought it could be a good idea to use it in a cake. With Thanksgiving around the corner, and with lots of fresh cranberries at the store, it was a no-brainer to mix these two ingredients into one tasty cake.

Crispy Spelt and Semolina Pizza with Cherry Tomatoes Sauce

Crispy Spelt and Semolina Pizza Ronit Penso

I don’t often follow recipes to the letter, mine included. However, one recipe that I don’t change is the following pizza dough, which I’ve created years ago, and keep preparing it without change. As I prepared it again this week, I’ve realized it’s been quite a few years since I’ve posted the recipe for it, and thought it would be a good idea to re-post it. So, here it is once again. Try it and Enjoy! Continue reading “Crispy Spelt and Semolina Pizza with Cherry Tomatoes Sauce”

Tomato, Rosemary and Cheese Flat Bread

Most times, when I’m up to baking bread, I opt to my basic focaccia recipe. This time, however, I wanted something different, and started looking around, to see what I can add to the dough I was about to create.

As I had some tomato sauce ready, I was wondering, how it will work as part of the bread itself, rather than as a topping. This led to another idea – why not add some cheeses to the dough, along with it? Continue reading “Tomato, Rosemary and Cheese Flat Bread”

Cranberry-Blueberry Crisp with Spelt Flour and Chai Masala Spice Mix

Fruit crisp is one of my favorite desserts, and I make it often, with various fruits and different toppings. The version I have here was made last year, with leftover cranberries from Thanksgiving dinner. It was so tasty, that I plan to make it again for the coming holiday, to be served as the dessert.

Blueberry Nectarine Crisp with Spelt Flour and Coconut

A crisp is one of the easiest and tastiest fruit desserts. The combination of warm, juicy fruits layer, with a crispy sweet topping, is a perfect ending to a summer lunch or dinner.
In the version I have for you here, I used spelt flour instead of white flour, and mixed it with rolled oats and shredded coconut, along with butter and warm spices. Continue reading “Blueberry Nectarine Crisp with Spelt Flour and Coconut”

Multi Grain and Rosemary Focaccia

Focaccia is a fairly quick bread to make, and it doesn’t require any special pans. So, it’s no wonder that I make it quite often. While I usually use my basic recipe (check HERE for the post), I sometimes like to experiment with different types of flour (as you can see HERE), even if they’re taking the recipe very far from the authentic Italian version. Continue reading “Multi Grain and Rosemary Focaccia”

Carrots, Almonds, Coconut and Golden Raisins Breakfast Bars

While I mostly prefer a protein-based breakfast, I also like to have other options every now and then. The following super-healthy bars are a good example of that: they are loaded with high fiber ingredients, fairly low on sugar and fat, and are a great tasty way to start the day.

Multi Grain Soda Bread

Soda bread is the perfect bread to bake when you want a fresh warm loaf, without waiting for the dough to rise. The texture is obviously denser than yeast dough bread, but the easiness and quickness of making this bread compensate for that.
Unlike in traditional Irish soda bread, here I, once again, used different types of flour in the dough, in order to give it a more interesting texture and higher nutritional value. Continue reading “Multi Grain Soda Bread”
