Malabi is an Israeli dessert that looks like our budino. It is sweet, creamy and prepared with rose water or orange flower water. I don't like rose water because of its taste and above all its smell, so I prepared my version of malabi with orange flower water.

In the East this dessert is served with walnuts. I make a mousse with mango for it and decorate it with fruit. I must say that this version is really yummy and very glamorous. If you like the smell of rose water, make the original dessert with it and with walnuts. Maybe only to form your own opinion of it.


Ingredients (for 4 people)
400ml of rice-coconut milk
200ml of 30% sweet cream
2 tablespoons of caster sugar
50g of rice flour
1 teaspoon of orange flower water
1 mango
1 teaspoon of gelatine
fruit for decoration


In my home bananas are a difficult subject. They are either eaten just after buying or lie and ripen slowly until they are only good for cocktails or cakes. Fortunately, we like both of these options, so bananas don't go to waste in my home.

Today I tried a new recipe for banana cake with chocolate by Kinga Paruzel. It is not enough to say that this cake was excellent! I won't bake any other kind of banana cake. It was perfect in all particulars: Easy, cheap, and all housewives have all the ingredients in their own kitchen. In addition, it is moist, fluffy and very chocolatey, and it smells beautiful while baking. It has only one fault: it definitely vanishes too fast. But we can sort this out easily. We can bake another cake.

Ingredients (25cm cake tin):
110g of wheat flour
30g of rye flour
2 bananas
2 eggs
150g of brown sugar
2 tablespoons of cocoa
125ml of oil
100ml of thick natural yoghurt
1 teaspoon of baking powder
half a teaspoon of baking soda
a pinch of salt
100 g of dark chocolate


I don't know who came up with the idea that Fat Thursday should be celebrated on Thursday. If for example it were on Saturday, we could prepare something in the kitchen and share the sweet goodies with the family. Unfortunately, this year Fat Thursday will again be on Thursday Mrugnięcie.

Though I have my favourite cake shop, where every year I buy jam doughnuts with a huuuuuge amount of candied peel, this year I'm going to prepare some swift cheese doughnuts. They are best just after frying, crunchy outside and soft inside, quickly sprinkled with lemon icing or caster sugar. I recommend them not only on Fat Thursday. They are excellent for afternoon tea at the weekend.

Ingredients (15 mini doughnuts)
300g of flour
350g of minced cottage cheese
3 tablespoons of caster sugar
1 teaspoon of vanilla essence
1 teaspoon of baking powder
a pinch of salt
oil for frying
caster sugar icing for decoration


Do you remember the cartoon "Pooh's Heffalump Movie"? I and my children (in this order) like it very much. To this day, when I'm having an off day, I turn this movie on to lift my mood.

Today, I and my daughter prepared some yummy, crunchy oat-caramel cookies with chocolate. They were excellent with a cup of hot milk, so we both thought that they should be called "Rumpledoodles", which was the name of the cookies which the Heffalump's mum gave her son. Make "Rumpledoodles" with a loved one in your home. A warm, sweet, family atmosphere is guaranteed.

The original recipe comes from

Ingredients (45 cookies):
175g of butter
220g of rolled oats
150g of brown sugar
75g of fudge
1 egg
110g of flour
1 teaspoon of baking powder
Half a teaspoon of vanilla essence
a pinch of salt
100g of dark chocolate


Before Christmas I definitely maxed out on the amount of gingerbread cookies. They were excellent – both the colourful ones with chocolate and the fluffy ones with lemon icing. Unfortunately, their amount exceeded the capability even of my children. The fluffy gingerbread cookies were a bit stale and not so appetizing. It was a pity to throw them away and pointless to force ourselves to eat them.

A few days after Christmas I prepared a dessert with chia seeds and crushed gingerbread cookies. I put some small, juicy pieces of pomegranate on top of the fabulous dessert. It was yummy and colourful, and I didn't throw anything away.

Ingredients (for 4 people)
4 tablespoons of chia seeds
400ml of coconut milk
100ml of almond milk
3 tablespoons of light honey
half a teaspoon of vanilla essence
200g of gingerbread cookies with icing
1 pomegranate
