These small batch strawberry cupcakes are an ideal choice for when you need to satisfy that sweet craving but don’t need a dozen cupcakes (too much calorific temptation, am I right or what?). Or like me, it might also give you a safe opprtunity to test out new cake flavours without commiting to a big batch. Whatever the case, these cupcakes are super soft and airy with a delicate strawberry flavour and are topped with an easy fresh cream frosting.
Daal is a staple Indian comfort food. This thick and creamy vegetarian friendly dish has a hint of citrus through the addition of kaffir lime leaves. It’s super easy to whip up and goes great paired with rice or you could try my favourite way of sipping it on its own from an over sized mug – it is literally like a hug in a mug. If you’ve checked out my Lebanese rashta soup or vegetarian Harira soup you will know that I am a huge fan of lentils and legumes. And dal is probably my favourite lentil dish out there.
A Middle Eastern Almond and Semolina cake that is light and airy, and soaked in a sugar syrup with rosewater and lemon to ensure it stays deliciously moist. It pairs well with a good cup of tea or coffee and is often served at special occasions such as Eid. This is a super easy (almost foolproof) cake that can be whipped up in just one bowl. Less washing up? That’s always a yes! In fact the trickiest thing about the cake is figuring out what to call it in English. Basboosa or Basbousa? Hareesa or Haresah?
