Coffee & Walnut Cake

COFFEE & WALNUT CAKE This lovely, rich, traditional cake is my Partner’s favourite.  The combination of good coffee and hearty walnuts is a compelling combination for any afternoon tea or anytime sweet treat. You can make the cake with or without the topping (or you can use the topping as a filler in the middle

Dark Chocolate Fudge Cake

DARK CHOCOLATE FUDGE CAKE This chocolate cake is rich and dark, moist and hearty.  The secret ingredient is black treacle and the topping of 100% black chocolate ganache is a must for real chocolate lovers.  Rich and decadent, you’ll be able to serve this to your guests whether on a keto/low-carb diet or not.  They’ll

Chocolate Ganache

CHOCOLATE GANACHE This simple to make and wonderful chocolate ganache is made in minutes and can be adjusted to produce a lighter or thicker sauce for the type of ganache you require – from simple glazing for the top of cakes to a cream-type filling for cakes or as piping for a topping for cupcakes

Ginger Cake with Lemon Icing

GINGER CAKE with LEMON ICING This lovely, serve-anytime, recipe has been adapted, to be low-carb and keto-friendly, from Saint Delia’s recipe.  It’s a firm family favourite in our house.  My kids grew up on this cake and I’ve managed to keep it as near as possible to the original.  The key for me is using

Almond & Raspberry Muffins

ALMOND & RASPBERRY MUFFINS

I just love the combination of almond and raspberries.  There’s something rich and luxurious about these two flavours together and this recipe was inspired by my love of bakewell tarts.  The muffins are simple to make, bake in 18 minutes and can easily be frozen.  These lovely muffins have just 4.5 carbs each and are delicious with a cup of tea or coffee or warmed in the microwave and served with cream or custard as a dessert or pudding.

Chocolate Brownies

CHOCOLATE BROWNIES

As a chocoholic, it has been lovely to work on my regular gluten-free brownie recipe to find a keto version – and here it is!  These yummy brownies are incredibly rich and lightly gooey in the middle.  I’ve baked them here in individual square tins (because they look pretty), but they can also be baked in a square or oblong tin and cut into portions.  This recipe makes 16 brownies and they have just 1.8 carbs each.  (2.3 carbs each if you add walnuts). Delicious, rich, yummy brownies.

Sticky Toffee Pudding

Sticky Toffee Pudding

Oh my!  Treat time.  Because it’s sometimes a challenge to find different ingredients in different countries, I’ve mixed three recipes together here to create my own version of this classic favourite. Sweet, light & spongy and with a very satisfying taste of Toffee, this lovely dessert is quick and easy to make and will satisfy those with the sweetest of teeth!  It’s only 3.5 carbs per serving and is worthy of any family table.

Victoria Sponge

VICTORIA SPONGE

It’s back to basics today with a simple, but delicious keto-friendly Victoria Sponge.  Using home-made keto Raspberry Jam (recipe from the blog), this traditional and wonderful tea-time treat is just 5 carbs per slice! With one batch of Raspberry Jam, I made the Bakewell Tarts and this Victoria Sponge.  I can’t wait for the kids to come home….. a familiar and happy taste from their childhood!

Bakewell Tarts

BAKEWELL TARTS

I love almonds and I love the taste of almond in sweet, baked goods.  I’ve created this recipe because I just love Bakewell Tarts.  They are a memory from my childhood, from Saturday teas and afternoons when my Nan came to visit.  With keto sweet pastry and my keto Raspberry jam, these lovely cakes are just 5.6 carbs each.  Well worth the effort of making.

Quick & Easy Carrot Cake

QUICK & EASY CARROT CAKE

I’ve adapted this lovely, moist, carrot cake recipe from my favourite Banana Bread recipe.  It’s a low-carb, rather than keen keto, option, but it is nonetheless delicious and worthy of a try for a special treat.  I’ve managed to finesse a reasonable option for the traditional cream-cheese filling and topping too.  This cake is made in a loaf tin to provide 12 slices and without the cream cheese, it’s 6 carbs per slice and with the addition of filling and topping, it comes in at 6.5 carbs per slice.

Chocolate Heaven Cake

CHOCOLATE HEAVEN CAKE

What can I say?  This truly lovely chocolate cake is a big hit with everyone who tries it.  I’m not sure if it’s the lovely chocolatey sponge, the amazing chocolate sauce, or the sweetened cream that hits the hot-spot for most people – maybe it’s the combination of all three?  At 7 carbs per slice (if you cut your cake into 12 slices), it’s a delicious treat you can have when you have a few carbs in the bank!

Vanilla Cake

VANILLA CAKE

This lovely, simple, cake is delicious just on it’s own with a cuppa, but can be easily adapted to add chocolate, caramel, lemon, orange – anything you fancy really.  I just love it on it’s own.  It’s a 10-12 slice loaf cake that takes just 1 hour to make and bake and with only 5 carbs per slice, it’s a little keto power-house of vanilla sweetness and comfort.
