7 recipes with Almonds and Milk made by Baking for No peanuts diet

Coffee cake

My first real cake, made with delicious coffee-flavored buttercream. It was really good, and simple! Because this cake doesn't require leveling, you can simply bake two layers separately, then stack them — a perfect recipe for beginners! :-)

I made my cake with normal instant coffee, but you can also use decaf coffee for same taste, but caffeine-free cake! :-)

Quick cream pie

Somehow I managed to hide mini chocolate muffins in my oven over the weekend and now I'm left with lots of chocolate cake crumbs. I decided to make a quick, and easy dessert, which doesn't look luxurious, but is really tasty, fast and easy to prepare in almost no time. Try on your own, you can use any kind of sweet baked cookies, cakes, etc., that crumbles easily.

German Zimtsterne (cinnamon almond cookies)

I always wanted to make these, and finally got the guts — oh boy, I wasn't really prepared for the amount of nitty-gritty with making these. I started with original German recipe that called for 500g of almonds, but that ended up being 2 full baking sheets and lots of sneaky snacking between steps ;-) But the result is good, and these cookies are worth the effort.

Soft bread

Making bread is an art, and it's also a science — but when you get to know basics, you can get really creative and make beautiful, tasty breads and bread rolls. You have to start somewhere, and this soft bread recipe is a terrific way to enjoy fresh, spongy, tasty bread whenever you want!

This recipe is a great base for more fancy breads — you can add more dry ingredients, e.g. nuts, sunflower seeds, dried tomatoes, olives, to make the bread more interesting and artisanal.

Baguettes

Baguettes are a perfect bread for breakfast, soup, or a kick-ass sandwich — they have a crispy shell and tasty, slightly moist and white insides, perfect for cheese, jam or delicate meat toppings. And they look amazing, so you can surprise your friends and family with both delicious and great looking bread! The only caveat is the required baking form in the appropriate shape, but you will not regret buying it after you make your first batch!
