Gluten-free, Dairy-free Flapjacks aka Vegan Pancakes

Gluten-free, Dairy-free Flapjacks aka Vegan Pancakes

I finally got around to trying out some gluten-free, dairy-free flapjacks.  At our house flapjacks are not something we normally have. Our “go to” has always been crepes (aka skinny pancakes aka lattua or Finnish crepes) so this is a bit of a departure. From…

This recipe is based on the Cherry Almond Scone recipe from The Dahlia Bakery Cookbook. I didn’t have any dried cherries and truth be told I prefer dried cranberries. Plus my kids won’t eat whole nuts in anything so I had to sneak them in…

Dahlia Bakery English Muffins Definitely a Labour of Love

Dahlia Bakery English Muffins Definitely a Labour of Love

First off these things are bloody labour intensive. Basically, if you make them the same day you are looking at about 4 hours from start to finish including rising, proofing and baking time. Second…they really are incredibly delicious. So, if you have the time (or…
