Moist gluten free orange n almond cake

Yummy moist gluten free cake

I am a cake lover and love experimenting with different flavours and combinations. Although I have tasted various types of fruit cakes, they were never on my list of favorites, since it’s not considered advisable to bind together certain fruits and dairy in a single dish. This esp. holds valid for citrus fruits, as its acidity can cause adverse reactions when used in combination with milk or milk products like butter.

Strawberry icecream

A creamy strawberry surprise

An Icecream for the strawberry lovers and definitely for all those berry haters. I belong to the latter category and detest plain strawberries. The tartness that the berries offer is way beyond what my taste buds can handle. Having said that, I need to mention my strong liking for any strawberry based dessert, for the simple reason that, the same tartness in the strawberry that I dislike, balances out the sweetness, and provides the right amount of freshness to a dessert, upping them a level above any non-acidic fruity dessert.
