Dairy-Free Chocolate Cake

Dairy-Free Chocolate Cake

 Simply Prepared in One Bowl!

Dairy-Free Chocolate Cake with Citrus Glaze and Candied Orange Peels | figsandfeta.com

Every time I make a Bundt cake, I can’t help but think of the classic Bundt cake scene in My Big Fat Greek Wedding.  This Bundt is a delicious, and decadent Dairy-Free Chocolate Cake topped with citrus glaze and candied orange peels. Yes, this cake has a hole in it. But don’t worry… “I fix the hole”. ;)


“What is it?”

“It’s a Bundt.”

“A Bon?”

“A Bundt.”

“Bunk? Bonk, bonk?”

“BUNdT!”

“Bunnn – T?”

“BUNDT! BUNDT!”

“Oh.. it’s a cake!”

Happy Fava’s Day

Fava-7

Recently, I asked for my husband’s input regarding a “Greek-ified” Father’s Day recipe to write about. Father’s Day seems to be about BBQ and all the fixings. I knew I didn’t want to tamper with the BBQ tradition (mainly because backyard BBQ isn’t an option right now under my current living conditions!) but I was stumped as to what recipe I could contribute to the occasion.

Slow-roasted Tomatoes with Basil Oregano and Garlic

Tomatoes-4Slow-roasted Tomatoes with Basil Oregano and Garlic is more of a method than a recipe. There’s not much to them and your oven does all the work. This is a great recipe to try on the weekend when you have cleaning or yard work to do around the house. Prepare the tomatoes in the morning, pop them in the oven and forget about them for 2 hours while you scrub the bathroom floors or pull weeds in the back yard!

Shrimp and Vegetable Stuffed Tricolor Peppers

Peppers-6I’ve been privileged to eat some of the most delicious stuffed tomatoes and peppers during my travels through Greece. One of my most memorable meals was Yemista (YEM-e-staa), at a friend’s grandmother’s house in the village of Itea where at the age of 18, my closest friends and I enjoyed spending a summer. Yiayia Amelia made enough to feed a Spartan army although there were only five of us at the lunch table. How did we end up with just 3 stuffed peppers and 1 stuffed tomato left at the end of our lunch? We ate more than our share, that’s how. It’s hard to pass up on extreme deliciousness.

Spicy Hummus Spread

Hummus-2Some years ago I went through a hummus phase. I was constantly craving hummus and with every batch prepared the outcome became more lemony or more garlicky. I not only enjoyed eating said hummus and impressing my family and friends with this homemade goodness, but I also enjoyed the fact that it was so easy to prepare. There is a certain satisfaction to preparing something delicious so quickly and with very little clean up.

Confession:  There’s not a lot about this recipe that is Greek, except for the fact that I am Greek, and I make them. :)  Here’s how the story goes…

Non-Dairy Greek Spice Cake Donuts

Donuts-3Recently purchasing a much-needed, little non-stick donut-baking pan, I figured it would be fun to “greek-ify” a baked donut.  This pan is turning out to be the best $4.95 I’ve spent in a long time. I find myself wishing I had purchased two instead of one!
