Chocolate & Cinnamon Kokosh Cake

When I go to Toronto, there is a dessert called Kokosh Cake that I love. I usually buy it at a place called Hermes on Bathurst Street, the address is 2885 Bathurst Street, North York. Layers of dough surrounded by a delicious chocolate filling…and sometimes I find it with a cinnamon filling which is hard to find…Since I live in Edmonton & I am pretty sure that no one make Kokosh Cake here, I have to make it myself. The recipe I decided to make is from Truffles & Trends…I made 4 small ones from one recipe…2 with 1/2 of the recipe for the chocolate filling on that page & the other one with a cinnamon filing. The recipe calls for butter, but I like to have most of my desserts non-dairy so I use Becel Vegan margarine..you can use any vegan margaine you like.. Earth Balance… whatever, or use the butter….

Lemon Currant Scones

I love scones. Crispy on the outside, flaky inside. There is a trick to making a good scone I think. Not too much handling of the dough. Like a pie crust. I am not an expert but I like to make them & keep them in the freezer. When I want to eat one, I just pop it in the microwave briefly so it is just defrosted & not over-done.

Dasha’s Cottage Cheese Pie

An old family recipe for a cottage cheese ‘pie’ baked in a square pan…so not really a ‘pie’ but not a square either! This recipe has a cake like bottom, cottage cheese filling & cake like top… slightly sweet but not too much sugar…baked to a golden brown. But it isn’t really a cake either! You will just have to make it & decide what to call it yourself!!
