Quick Injera Recipe with Wheat Flour

Traditionally, injera bread takes days to make. I wanted a fast version though for nights when I simply hadn’t been able to plan ahead enough to make injera properly.

Lemon “Loaf” + Icing

This is a fun dessert that is unlike any other dessert I’ve come across. Although intended for baking in a loaf pan (a cake pan would work too), this “loaf” is candy-like and indulgent. But, even though it’s indulgent, this is a guilt-free dessert that’s vegan, sugar-free, gluten-free, and dairy-free! Almond flour may be substituted…
