Finally, I am posting a cake recipe for this blogging marathon. I am glad that I am sharing our family favorite – Tres Leches Cake, of course, the eggless version. :-) We all know that this is a famous Mexican cake and Tres means three and leches mean milk. It’s a sponge cake soaked in three milk mixture; Whole milk /heavy cream, condensed milk, and evaporated milk. I did not use any butter for this recipe. It’s light, spongy cake with the air bubble, and this texture helps to absorb the milk and make it moist and juicy.
For the alphabet S, I am going to present Snicker Doodle Cookies from Germany. I usually write down the recipe list for my entire mega marathon and the first that I wrote “S for Snicker Doodle Cookies.” This soft and chewy cinnamon flavored cookie is a treat for everyone. Even the non-sweet tooth person like me can gobble these cookies anytime, and I love this with milk especially. Ok, let’s blame it on the cinnamon. :-)
After few piquant bakes, I am here with yet another bread recipe, but this time it’s with Rye flour and APF. Rizhsky Khleb – unique savory bread from Russia prepared with rye flour with the hint of caraway seeds. This is rustic bread with sweet and savory flavor making it perfect for sandwiches.
Looking for a protein rich, quick and delicious meal? Then this recipe is for you. Here is the vegetarian version of the French delicacy – Quiche with Tofu and vegetables. When I tried my vegan tofu frittata, I made a note to try a quiche with tofu but completely forgot. Glad I forgot, if not I would struggle for the alphabet Q. :-) So here is the eggless quiche recipe with tofu. Please refer to the notes section for the vegan version.
P is for Pizza, precisely Pesto Pizza and it’s my favorite kind of pizza. This is my second recipe from the land of Italy after Focaccia. I love thin crust pizzas and the one that I posted earlier is also a thin crust one and today’s recipe is also a thin crust one. Will you believe me that this pizza is a perfect weekday dinner and it can be prepared within 30 minutes with proper planning? No, I am not kidding, and that’s what I am going to share today, how I planned and prepared this.
Today’s recipe is a “naan” recipe from Persia called – Obi Non. Obi non or lepyoshka is a kind of flat tandoor bread popular in Afghan, Tajik and Uzbek cuisine. It is shaped like a disc and comparatively thicker than naan. There are different varieties of Naan, and it originates from Central and South Asia with influence from the Middle-East. I am going to share one of the naan varieties called obi non which is quite popular in Uzbekistan.
Today I am going to share one of the traditional cookies from Persia, precisely from Iran – Nan-E Nokhodchi | Persian Chick Pea Cookie with Cardamom and Pistachios. Chickpeas are popular in Persian cooking and this cookie is prepared with roasted chickpea flour. You know what, this is a vegan and gluten free cookie making it perfect for everyone. With the delicate flavors of cardamom and rose syrup and chick peas, this is sure a table winner.
I am going to share one of our favorite recipes today. It’s the Mandelbrot (in Yiddish) or Mandel Bread (in English) or Kamishbrot in Ukraine. The name might sound different, but it’s the nothing but simple almond bread. It is one of the famous Jewish cookies. In Yiddish, Mandel means almond and brot means bread. It’s twice baked bread, and the crunchier exterior makes it more similar to biscotti. Today I am going to share the Eggless version of the almond biscotti.
The next recipe that I am going to post is the Lemon Cheese Danish with Eggless lemon curd. Now you know why I posted the lemon curd recipe yesterday. I prepared this cheese Danish as a semi-homemade recipe with store bought puff pastry . So that makes it as a five ingredient recipe. Yes, all you need is puff pastry, cream cheese, sugar or condensed milk, lemon curd and some flour for dusting. With these ingredients, you can make a delicious Danish pastry.
Fruit curd is a dessert spread which is used as a topping or served as a side for bread and scones. The most popular one is the lemon curd which is widely employed in pies and tarts. It’s also a great replacement for jam and preserves. Traditionally it is prepared with eggs, butter, and the fruit. Today I am going to share an Eggless and Butterless vegan lemon curd.
