Lemon-Coconut Bars (without flour)


OK, this little thing is absolutely delicious yet one can say (once again depending on your "healthy life style beliefs") that is is quite healthy. In any case, this is without flour so if you have issues with gluten, this one is for you.

The tart-sweet taste of lemon and the rich coconut are great combo and you need only 20 minutes to put it together (without baking time).

The Esterhazy Cake - January 2015 Daring Bakers' Challenge



For the month of January Jelena from A Kingdom for a Cake invited us to start this year with a dreamy celebration cake. She challenged us to make the Esterhazy cake a.k.a the Hungarian dream. What better way to start the year than with a sweet dream?

As per usual when it comes to the Daring Bakers' Challenges, I struggled with the recipe, I didn't pay attention and I used the yolks that were supposed to go to a filling when baking the sponge layers. Anyway, I manage to save it and the cake actually tasted pretty good. I am definitely going to try it again.
