Pear Honey and Walnut Upside-Down Cake

This perfect autumn cake is a result of my makeover of an old family recipe, the one from a huge collection of Russian recipes I’m planning to publish someday one way or another. Feather-soft cardamom-spiced honey cake, sweet caramelized succulent… Continue reading →

Chocolate and Honey Banana Mini-Cupcakes with Luscious Honey Cream Cheese Frosting

These little cupcakes are very good on their own – soft, light and moist, with tiny specs of grated chocolate, but simply outstanding when frosted with this super-creamy honey cream cheese frosting. What makes the frosting so special is the… Continue reading →

Lemon Honey Panna Cotta with Lemon Fennel Puff Pastry Straws

Even the last scraps of home made puff pastry taste great and puff perfectly. Never ever dispose these precious leftovers, always put them to some use. The flavor of the real butter and the texture of the finished product is… Continue reading →

Honey Cardamom Mousse with Mango Gelée and Pistachio Apricot Kernel Toasts

Desserts served in glasses (or any other vessels) are stress-free for entertaining hosts. All you have to do on the day you are having guests over is to transfer these glasses from the fridge onto the table. It is very… Continue reading →

Pine Nut Honey Squares (Rectangles)

I don’t just love the flavor of these nuts, I also respect their softness, their slicing cooperativeness. And there’s a significant benefit from the waste-free cutting – the less trimmings and shattered pieces you have, the slimmer you are (well,… Continue reading →

Honey and Cardamom Fleur de Sel Caramels

These soft caramels are not difficult to make and very easy to eat. I infused the cream with cardamom flavor and added a good portion of fleur de sel. I do have an addiction to salted caramel. I guess, it… Continue reading →

Fig and Almond “Cake” with Rosemary, Anise and Sesame Seeds

Well, I wouldn’t call it a “cake”. But the author is the one who decides. I found the recipe in Nancy Silverton’s “Pastries from the La Brea Bakery”. It sounded like a perfect accompaniment for a cheese platter and I… Continue reading →

Cornmeal and Ricotta Honey Cake with Figs and Rosemary

I’m totally in love with Italian sweets. I think there’s more style and elegance in their simplicity than in multi-layered pompous gâteaux. And the flavors of Italian dolce have a tendency to far exceed our expectations. This cake is a… Continue reading →

Honey-Drizzled Chocolate Ricotta Fritters

These are wonderful and irresistible. I’m not promoting fried food here, but it won’t hurt to treat yourself once (or several times) in a while. The recipe is from “Chocolate Holidays”.

Chocolate Banana Muffins

This is not a suggesting for getting rid of scary, dark-spotted, overripen bananas. You might consider buying bananas exclusively for baking these muffins, they are sure worth it. I’m quite happy with the result of my experiments in achieving the… Continue reading →

Honey-Flavored Crème Anglaise

This a wonderful accompaniment to many desserts. It’s delicious poured over the cakes, tarts or fruits. Or freeze it in an ice-cream maker to get a great tasting vanilla-honey ice-cream.

Curd Cheese Zapekanka with Pears and Honey-Flavored Crème Anglaise

This is another way to enjoy fresh curd cheese. Sort of Russian cheesecake. But please, don’t confuse it with American cheesecake, the texture and flavor are completely different. I like it best warm, eaten with sour cream. But for a… Continue reading →

Poppy Seed Honey Cake

If you are like me – love everything that has poppy seeds in it, then this is definitely a recipe to try. The cake is moist, sweet and full of poppies. It gets even better in a day or too…. Continue reading →

Honey Maple Pecan Tart

More a confection than a pastry; it screams out loud for a double shot of espresso. The tart is seductive and rich. Serve it thinly sliced. If you wish you can substitute all or part of the pecans for walnuts.

Panforte Nero (Panpepato)

This is a wonderful treat for us, grown-ups. The panforte makes a great gift since the flavor only improves with aging and allows you to have it ready well before the Christmas fuss. Panpepato pears beautifully with dessert wines, coffee,… Continue reading →

Sage and Honey Cornbread

Don’t be afraid to use sage in the sweet bread. The flavor is very interesting and subtle.

French Toast

Here is a truly wonderful recipe in both taste and simplicity. You can assemble it a night before the weekend and let your family put it in the oven next morning while you are getting extra sleep. Although the aroma… Continue reading →

Fresh Fig and Pistachio Frangipane Tart

Despite the long description this dessert is not difficult to put together. And it can be done in stages over the several days. But the flavor is absolutely amazing and the result is definitely worth the efforts.
