Chocolate Oats Pots de Crème Recipe

Posted on 13th of May, 2010 by Lévana

cb11-44rs-150x150

Chocolate Oats Pots de Crème Long before the whole-grain fashion began (I am not telling you how long, I heard ladies don’t do that, but I will give you a hint: circa my ultra-lean student years, the very years that inadvertently turned me into a cook, as I was constantly...

Posted on 3rd of May, 2010 by Lévana

Promise I don’t want to be coy here: After more than two years of incredibly hard work to get my line of Natural Spelt Desserts in place, it looks like it’s finally happening. They are called, what else, Levana. I made a dry run of the desserts a couple weeks...

Makrod: Semolina Date Pastry Recipe. Gluten-Free Friendly

Posted on 22nd of April, 2010 by Lévana

Makrod

I have always rather neglected this wonderful treat, as the traditional preparation requires frying, my nemesis: I don’t think I have more than a handful of fried dishes in my whole repertoire. But I tweaked the recipe to do my bidding as a baked, not fried, treat, and the result...

banana-cc-cake

Children adore it, and of course so will you. Bananas got too ripe? Don’t even think of chucking them, as they make the greatest smoothies, muffins and cakes, their flavor reaching their sweetest and most intense peak! The riper the better: freeze them, and when ready to use run them...

Ridiculously simple and incredibly delicious: I whip it up in minutes. Who would believe it has no eggs and no cream and tastes so rich? No trace of the tofu’s controversial heritage, it’s all eclipsed by the other wonderful flavors! Tofu contributes only its bulk and great texture. My daughter...

Strawberry Rhubarb Sauce Recipe

Posted on 19th of March, 2010 by Lévana

Levana-Rhubarb2-300x230

This sauce is thick and dense, a self-contained dessert, more like a new-age jell-o (whatever you do, don’t call it that!) Dare I share the name we give this delightful sauce in my house? OK, but please don’t tell on me: I don’t want anyone saying Bubbie has a naughty...

If there is anyone who doesn’t go gaga over these little gems with the runny gooey centers, I have never met them! Alas, no baking in advance and no reheating, or they won’t be, well, molten chocolate cake: runny and gooey! The great news is, (a) they are nothing to...

Chocolate Beet Coconut Cake Recipe

Posted on 19th of March, 2010 by Lévana

Chocolate beet cake strawberry sauce

It is unfortunate that in America, beets invariably conjure up pointed remarks about, ummm, never mind!  We grew up eating them every day, and yes for pleasure not duty! I am always looking for ways to sneak them in, as in this cake, where they do their magic even while...

Almond Wine Cake Recipe

Posted on 19th of March, 2010 by Lévana

Orange-almond-cake-300x205

This is one of my favorite Passover cakes. As much as I would like to make my life easier by minimizing Passover preparations, I have never had the heart to buy pre-made desserts.  The ingredients in this cake are assertive and deliciously fragrant. You will want to make it all...
