In honor of Canada Day, just thought to recap some of the Canadian-ness that's been happening on the blog lately (and EVER) :) ...Starting with a few of my latest favorites -- classics remade wholesome (click on recipe name or photo to take you to the recipes):
Probably my ultimate favorite Canadian treat is a good ol' classic maple pie -- custardy, mapley, sweet, and super simple to throw together.
It wouldn't be a Canadian summer celebration without a traditional strawberry rhubarb dessert... Add some lime to the mix and you're in for a treat!
Of course you couldn't have a Canadian desserts selection without the obligatory butter tart!
Of course as the stereotype goes, Canada and maple anything are in a very symbiotic relationship... These maple butter chocolates are a quick and easy treat to whip up for any maple lover.
I'll admit this one's crossing the whole "wholesome" line since the recipe uses a butter alternative... but what Canadian desserts list would exclude a blueberry pie?! And a rather delicious one at that. Plus it's still gf, refined sugar-free, and all, so I'm closing my eyes on that butter and throwing it in!
Because raspberries and rhubarb are so in abundance here in summer...
... And a few obligatory RED AND WHITE desserts :)
Don't worry, it's gelatine-free ;) and refined sugar-free while we're at it...
Raw cashew & white chocolate bark, topped with red raspberries and white sliced almonds -- super simple, but so good!
Last but not least, this red and white themed tea cake makes a beautiful comforting and easy-to-make large batch dessert for gatherings or simple lazy holiday breakfasts (because cake for breakfast is a must once in a while).
And an honorable mention with not so great photography is this oldie Roasted Balsamic Strawberries Recipe to round off the deal!
HAPPY CANADA DAY for those celebrating & greetings from Canada to everyone else!
