5 Delicious Dairy-free Dessert Recipes

5 Delicious Dairy-free Dessert Recipes

Those with lactose intolerance or who suffer allergies when consuming dairy products will typically embark on a dairy-free diet. But dietary adjustments do not mean that sweet treats have to be foregone! Desserts can be made with dairy substitutes and still taste as good as those made with dairy! (Actually, most foodies will not even be able to tell the difference!)

Here are some dairy-free dessert recipes to follow!

1. Strawberry cheesecake

You can have your slice of strawberry cheesecake and eat it too…Even if you have dairy allergies or are lactose intolerant. There is not a trace of dairy in this cheesecake so you can put your worries aside and get down to the serious business of eating it.

2. Brownies

Love chocolate? Indulge in some chocolatey goodness with this fudgy brownie, which can even be made vegan. Meaning more brownie for everyone! (or for you)  

3. Coconut sponge cake

If you are craving some simple yet comforting sponge cake, try out this coconut delight!

4. Blueberry muffin

Amazing muffins that use dairy-free milk, such as soy milk, almond milk, oat milk and rice milk. A great blueberry muffin recipe to check out!

5. Lemon curd tart

Fancy a dairy free dessert with a burst of citrus flavours? This lemon curd tart is the answer to both that question and also to what I'll be having tonight. Yum.

5 Desserts that will make you wish you were Swedish

5 Desserts that will make you wish you were Swedish

The highlight of Swedish cuisine is arguably the pastries and desserts. With so much variety, those with a sweet tooth will be in for plenty of treats when they visit Sweden. 

Here are some swedish sweets to try when in Sweden!

1. Princess Cake

This iconic and traditional Swedish cake, known as prinsesstarta, consists of layers of cream, sponge cake and jam (all the good stuff.) It is topped with green marzipan as well as a pink marzipan rose before it is left to chill and later serve. Perfect for birthday celebrations or special occasions!

2. Semla

Semla, a cream-filled bun, is a familiar sight in Swedish bakeries. The roll in Semla is flavoured with cardomom and the cream filling is comprised of almond paste and whipped cream. Traditionally eaten on Shrove Tuesday, semla is now eaten pretty much at any time (especially by me) and you can easily find this treat at most bakeries in Sweden.

3. Ostkaka

Ostkaka, known as Swedish cheesecake, is unlike the conventional cheesecakes that we are familiar with in that it is denser in texture and a lot less sweet. It is traditionally made by curdling fresh milk with rennet but is more commonly made with cottage cheese today. Ostkaka is typically eaten lukewarm and can be served with fruit jams, fresh fruit and cream.

4. Kladdkaka

A dense and gooey chocolate cake, Kladdkaka will surely delight lovers of chocolatey desserts. This decadent treat is topped with icing sugar and is typically served with fresh fruit and cream or ice-cream(or all of them if you want!)

5. Appelkaka

Appelkaka, or apple cake, is one of the most common desserts served in Swede eateries. It is typically accompanied with a generous helping of vanilla sauce and while its appearances seem to be a cross between a pie and cake, it definitely belongs to the 'cake' category in swedish cuisine.

Italian Desserts you MUST Try

Italian Desserts you MUST Try

Italian cuisine is renowed for its great variety, not only when it comes to mains but also when it comes to desserts! Those with a sweet tooth will know that no meal is complete with dessert and there certainly is no better way to round off a hearty Italian meal than with some mouth-watering desserts!

Here are some Italian desserts you will want to try when you visit Italy!

1. Panna Cotta

If you love your pudding, you will love panna cotta too. This Italian classic features on the menus of most Italian eateries so it will be hard to miss an opportunity to test it. Although the traditional panna cotta calls for a caramel sauce, you will often find it served with strawberry or chocoate sauce. The more outlandish amongst you may want to push the boat out and try cinnamon or aniseed!

2. Tiramisu

There are so many variations of this well-loved dessert – it can be a cake or served in a cup, wine glass and even a shot glass! Who said coffee is just for mornings?

3. Cannoli

Cannoli is a Sicilian pastry dessert with a sweet and creamy ricotta filling. While cannoli may have originated in Sicily, the Arabs were the ones who came up with this classic when they dominated Sicily region. 

4. Zabaglione

This light custard dessert typically contains Marsala wine, a sweet wine produced in the Marsala region of Sicily. If you like your desserts with a hint of alcohol, you will not be disappointed with a serving of zabaglione!

5. Ricotta pie

Ricotta pie is arguably an Italian take on cheesecake, albeit a lighter and less sweet version so do not expect it to taste like the rich and sinful cheesecakes you have had before. Nevertheless, lovers of cheesecake should still be open to trying out something different – you may well love it!
