It sounds like a lot of flavours, but worked surprisingly well. The olive oil really enhances the fruitiness of the lemon and the white chocolate cuts through the tang.…

Gluten-Free Lemon and Poppyseed Loaf

This classic bake gets a gluten free twist and a glaze added to it, to amp up the lemony flavour. Lemon and poppyseed cake has to be up there with one of my favourite cakes. As a student, I would always go to the local student restaurant, Cocoa Wah Wah for a slice of indulgence during exam study breaks. They had the most incredibly moist lemon and poppyseed layer cake…

Lemon and Blueberry Loaf

This is a simple lemon loaf with blueberries tossed in, drizzled with lemon syrup for some extra tart flavour, and moisture. I want people to be able to bake delicious bakes, without all the effort and fuss of having to use complex techniques and ingredients. Personally, I like challenging myself by trying new techniques but sometimes a simple bake which yields delicious results is equally rewarding. This lemon and blueberry…
