Grainfree Fruit Cake





Bade’nin Sekeri is now 1 year old!

I want to take this opportunity to thank everyone who supported me through their comments, likes and messages and even simply by their presence. I hope we can all be together for many years.

I also owe a huge thanks to the designer of my new website, dear Mr and Mrs Zeynep and Ozgur Kuru. If it weren’t for them, I would still be frustrated and even tricked by a con man. I have said many times but it still feels not enough.  One of the best things Bade’nin Sekeri gave me is these new friendships.

I have already talked about surprises, first one is my website. As it’s still under construction, there might be small errors, so be warned. English version is still not ready.  And very soon I will be announcing a new project that I am also a part of.

As for the recipe, this cake did not rise. But it is very much moist and delicious.
