In case it isn’t apparent yet, I’ve tried lots of lemon-flavoured desserts!  I really liked that this cake was flavourful without being too overpowering.  Beating the egg whites to soft peaks before folding them into the loaf resulted in a dessert that was lighter than many of the quick breads I’ve previously tried.  Continue reading for the recipe and nutritional information (more…)

These muffins are a perfect alternative to banana bread.  With thick yogurt, toasted coconut and chopped walnuts on top, they definitely don’t need any icing!  I ran into some trouble while trying to strain regular yogurt – so I recommend you just buy thick greek yogurt in the first place!  (Regular yogurt will work fine as well, it will just be a bit runnier!)  Continue reading to see the recipe and nutritional information (more…)

I love recipes for desserts that incorporate fruits/vegetables so I was excited to give this Cinnamon Carrot loaf a try!  It ended up being very special – its officially the first recipe that Daniel (AKA official photographer/taste-tester) gave a perfect rating.  With 2.5 grams of fat, this bread is a perfect alternative to greasy carrot cake.  Best of all – it is FAST and very easy!  Click on ‘more’ for the recipe and nutritional information.

I was excited to try this bread, as it looked very attractive in photos.  The twisting wasn’t too difficult, and it sure ended up looking great.  The finished bread was tasty, sweet and airy.  I apologize for the fractions in the recipe – the original recipe this was based on was for three loaves – much too many for me to try and eat!  Click below to see the recipe and nutritional information (more…)

This Lemon Chiffon Cake is very light and the topping is fresh and mousse-like with a strong citrus flavor.  It would be the perfect dessert at the end of a hot day – especially after a barbque or a heavier meal.  This cake was very popular, and the whole cake disappeared immediately!  At 75 calorier per 1/8th of the cake, this cake is especially great for anyone watching their calorie intake.

Avocado Quick Bread

While I often try to make low fat desserts, the mono/polyunsaturated fats in the avocado and almonds are very healthy.  The avocado gives this bread a very unique flavour and colour.  This bread is a must-try if you are looking for something different!!  Click below for the recipe, more photos and nutritional information.

This recipe was an adoption from a Apricot & Orange Roulade recipe, as I had some fresh pineapple on hand – it would be great with any type of fruit puree!  At only 70 calories per serving, the cake is light, tropical tasting, and a great way to have some fruit with dessert!  I would suggest unrolling the cake and adding the puree shortly before serving – otherwise the cake will absorb the juice from the puree and make the cake soggy.
