A gem from one of the home-made community organisation cookbooks my Mum's collected over the years. I've no idea who Jan was, but thanks, this is brilliant cake! (Very happy, Jan!*)

It's not a true mudcake, it's lighter and... sort of like brownies, especially if you cook it in a lamington/brownie tin.

I have a friend going through food allergy testing who currently can't eat gluten, dairy, corn, soy, or refined sugar, but can have chocolate with a sufficiently high percentage of cacao. Brownies were a challenge, but not an impossible one!

Since I had several ripe bananas sitting on my counter this morning, I decided to look for a dairy-free quick bread recipe. This one is from The Fannie Farmer Cookbook, 1990 Ed.

I originally got this recipe from http://www.smittenkitchen.com, but I decided it wasn't quite peanut butter-y for my taste, so I altered it slightly. Plus I simplified the instructions, because I like to simplify instructions when baking. Also, the original recipe came with a frosting recipe that I've never made; I like it just fine without it, though. I pretty much copied it with very few alterations, so I hope it's not considered plagiarism, but in any case, the original recipe is here.

I love to make pies. Pies are great and they've become a real part of any major family gathering (or gathering of my friends) where I have access to an oven. I haven't met a type of pie I don't want to make.

However - I've been asked to make up a pie for Memorial Day weekend. No problem, I think. Then I realise I'm dealing with a bunch of food allergies - no soy and no dairy allowed. I figure I've got two options - graham cracker crust or a shortening pie made with coconut oil (solid at room temperature, very unhealthy iirc). Then I remembered coming across recipes for olive oil crusts, but I could never get the hang of those - I'm used to making butter pastry so having a liquid oil is foreign. I was wondering if any of you had any advice on how an olive oil crust might be differently handled than a butter crust?

And so this isn't just me asking questions: Pumpkin Pie with a Shortening Crust )
