This is one of my favourite recipes that I make all the time for my family. Its really easy to make and very adaptable as over the years with the ever changing needs of my family its a great recipe that you can adapt to gluten free and vegan if required. I hope you enjoy baking and eating them as much as I do!
This is a raw and vegan recipe our family loves. Since we are not using dairy products, we have to invent new recipes for our new lifestyle. This is one, that is really great if you are longing for some chocolate, if it is cold outside and you want to hide beside the oven with a warm cup of cocoa, that still is raw food.
This little tart is such a tasty accompaniment to a cup of coffee, you should definitely have one for breakfast. It's a struggle getting recognized as a pastry or a bean dish in a country where Pastéis de Nata and Feijoada reign supreme, but, powered by beans, this treat is strong enough to earn your love!! Find them in any pastelaria or make your own today!
No German Christmas market without caramelized almonds. There is a little stand on every market during the holiday season, where you can buy this sweet, sticky and delicious treat. I learned from my mother in law how to make caramelized almonds at home. You can try a version with different nuts and spices, but the almonds will always be a classic.

Biancomangiare is a typical treat of my little and colorful Sicily. It's a poor sweet, quick and easy to cook but very very tasty.
Still today I remember the smell. My home smelled like milk and vanilla. My mom has no head for sweets (she just loves eat them!), but with the Biancomangiare she was able to gain my brother's mouthfeel and mine, making us to think she was an amazing pie maker and storming the medal "What a Godness!" :)
Today the recipe passed down to me and every time I'm enjoying this cake I go back in my mind to that kitchen that smells of milk and vanilla and I'm a child again.
Pear, almond and pistachio tart, based on a classic Spanish Santiago tart, with added fruit and nut. Heat your oven to 170 degrees C. Whisk 4 eggs with 250g sugar until the colour is pale yellow. Chop or coarsely grind 50g unsalted pistachio nuts and add these and 200g ground almonds to the egg mixture. Add 50g softened butter. Whisk it all until soft and creamy. Grease a round tart tin, 30cm diameter and pour in the cake mix. Peel 2 small or 1 very large pear (comice or Williams are good for this) and cut into even slices about 1cm thick at the outer edge. Arrange the pear slices around the cake, pressing them into the mixture so that they’re slightly covered. Bake for 35 minutes or until the cake mixture is just firm to touch. Let it cool in the tin for a few minutes before turning out. It’s really good served with a dollop of plain yoghurt. It’s supposed to serve 8 people, but nobody would get seconds, so I would say it serves 4 to 6.
