Marble Cake with Marshmallow Topping

My youngest son has been away to Guatemala on a school missions trip for 12 days! He has been managing fine with his food allergies while away (I may have packed half a suitcase of non-perishable food for him to take). He is the one with egg and peanut allergies. I am pretty sure he…

Triple “C” Cake

I named this cake Triple “C” Cake because of the chocolate, cinnamon and clementine component of the cake. I spotted this recipe in a french magazine called Coup de Pouche I found in the Air Canada Lounge (another couple of “C’s”), and adapted it to be eggless. I made quite a few modifications to this…

Carrot Cupcakes

The inspiration for these cupcakes came from a science project at my school where I teach. I need glass baby food jars, and since I am beyond the baby stage by just a tad, I bought pureed carrots and decided to use them to make cupcakes. I threw in a cup of grated carrots as…

Pumpkin Roll

Cake rolls are a fun twist on baking a cake. Cake rolls without eggs are hard to make because they are not traditionally baked with any oil or butter added to the sponge and they are tricky to roll. This recipe works with yogurt as an egg replacer because the pumpkin creates a sponge-like texture…

Blueberry Pie

We live in one of the best locations in the world for blueberries and wild ones in Nova Scotia are a rare find. We found some wild ones in the middle of our province and picked enough for a pie! Blueberries are full of antioxidants and are delicious off the bush or baked up in…

Lemon Cheesecake Squares

I was looking for a lemon bar recipe that doesn’t take too many eggs for a large pan so it would be easy to replicate. I found a recipe online that has cream cheese in it that only takes 4 eggs for a large pan. Cream cheese is your friend if you are egg allergic…

Chocolate Twist Bread

This really isn’t the bread making time of year but since I am a teacher and off in the summers, I make bread. This is my version of a chocolate twist bread. I haven’t quite perfected the shape yet but the taste is a-maz-ing! I have filled the bread with chocolate, almonds and cinnamon. The…

Classic Oatmeal Cookies

These classic oatmeal cookies are made with large flake oats, for lots of texture and greek yogurt for extra protein. They are crispy on the outside and chewy on the inside. If you are a purist you bake them as is, but if you are Team Raisin, you can add raisins; Team Chocolate Chip, you…

Cinnamon Swirl Bread

` This is a delicious sweet bread that usually contains eggs. In this bread I use flaxseed and plain yogurt as the egg replacement to help keep the dough nice and soft. I also use honey in the bread itself. This was my first attempt at a swirl bread but I have made other types…
