This light olive oil cake can be served alone or accompanied by pears poached in red wine or brandy-soaked cherries or prunes, but the success of the cake depends on using a top-quality olive oil.
Kelly and David Boudreaux call for a Nature’s Grocer Gluten Free, Dairy Free, Egg Free, Soy Free Plain Doughnut to serve as the base, but you can use your favorite gluten-free doughnut mix (or any doughnut mix) if you’re inclined to bake these at home. A cake-style doughnut will best absorb the rum (you could poke a few holes in the doughnut with a toothpick, like you would for a pound cake glaze). Add coconut flakes over the caramel sauce, if you like (it is dessert, right? ). Feel free to “doctor-up” your “Faith Doughnut” any way you like.
This is a healthy take on the no-bake cookie. So good and so good for you. Every time I make these peanut butter power bites, I am begged for the recipe. They are a hit with both kids and adults, and always disappear quickly.
My version of the candy classic tastes just enough of delicious bourbon without it feeling like you’ve done a shot when you pop it in your mouth. A little sorghum syrup brings out the earthiness of the pecans and bourbon. For a true indulgence, I like to dip these in milk chocolate, but you can use bittersweet for a more sophisticated edge, or a combo of both.
Because there’s not much flour in this batter, the crumb is chewy, sort of like a cross between a custard pie and a buttery cake. The cake is very thin but a good platform for the whipped cream and berries.
