When the boyfriend and I first started watching Game of Thrones, the show was already in its third season, so last year, we spent a good couple of weekends doing nothing but watch Game of Thrones in our pajamas, while eating pasta and salad. Those days were so awesome we decided to do it again when the 4th season came out. The wait was long and gruesome, but we made it through and had our marathon yesterday (sans pasta and salad because the boyfriend left it at his place).
Maybe I was hungry, but watching season 4 made me a little hungry. All the talk of pigeon pie and LEMON CAKES made me want to run into the kitchen to do some baking! Initially, I had my heart set on baking some of Sansa’s favorite, lemon cakes, but most of the recipes require coconut oil, something I can’t tolerate very well, so right now I am still on the hunt for the perfect recipe. For now, I will have to bake something else: Honey cakes!
Although it’s not the same as lemon cakes, honey cakes still sound like something they might eat in Game of Thrones… or maybe even Harry Potter right? Oh well, who cares, I have my heart set on making some sweet cakes 🙂
To make, all you will need is some: almond flour, coconut flour, baking powder, honey, olive oil, eggs and almond milk. Pretty simple right?
The results? GOOD!
To be honest, I was a bit apprehensive about adding the EVOO, especially after the disastrous batch of cheese puffs *shudders*, but much to my surprise, these tasted pretty good! I was just doing a quick taste test but I ended up eating a cake, and I’m tempted to eat another one, but I will resist!
Happy Baking! 🙂
I was going to make some Paleo lamington’s this afternoon, but I’ve been dying to open up my giant bag of almond flour, so after some googling, I decided that some chocolate scones will have to do. I’ve visited Elana’s Pantry many times before, but I always end up only drooling over her lovely pictures, because I could never find Honeyville’s brand of almond flour to make her goodies. That is…until now! (I love you Costco!)
I’ve never made scones before. In fact, I haven’t even had very many scones before, so I’m not quite sure how they are supposed to turn out. They look alright though, so I’m going to assume they are alright 😛
Anyways, the recipe is super straightforward and easy. Basically you just mix the wet and dry ingredients together, knead the dough and bake! I skipped the orange zest, only because I’m not a big fan of the orange-chocolate combination.
Even though the scones turned out better than I expected, I don’t think I will make them again. I always thought I would enjoy sweet scones, but turns out I don’t. If I make scones in the future, I will probably make something savory 🙂
Happy Baking! 😀
