Sweet Recipes

Here are a list of the sweet recipes that I’ve posted so far and some that are currently in the works and will soon appear (assuming they work!).  I will try to keep this up-to-date, but I’m not making any promises…

I’ve tried to categorise the recipes to make it easier for you, but of course there are always a few recipes that don’t quite fit into one category, or that fit into several.  I’ve also tried to remember to note where recipes are dairy-free, egg-free or gluten-free, although I may have missed one or two out.

Since I prefer metric measurements, most of my recipes are in metric, but if you want to convert them, the Gourmet Sleuth site is incredibly comprehensive, particularly for converting to and from American cups.
