FRUIT COBBLER – with make-ahead topping

FRUIT COBBLER – with make-ahead topping

Hi there my Galley Friends. I have a fun trick for you today that will make your nomadic-tiny-living-rv’ing-camping-off-grid existence so much easier. Now if I described this as dessert from a can, a jar or a bag, what would you think? EEW right? But that’s what it is really. I used to make up little zip baggies of the topping and bring it with us on our boating trips. They take up so little room and keep well.  Small tins…

CINNAMON SWIRL CAKE

CINNAMON SWIRL CAKE

On a roll my Galley friends.  Two blog posts in two weeks.  I think my deep blue funk is now a thing of the past.  Spring weather has a lot to do with it I’m sure…plus we recently de-winterized our little land trawler, RED II and spent the weekend aboard.  We are in lock down because of a nasty out-break of COVID in our east coast province and my daughter wanted a place to space-out (read all about it here),…

YOGURT CAKE

YOGURT CAKE

Hi there my Galley Peeps.  I apologize for my absence. A blue funk has hovered over my head lately and I just haven’t felt like creating.  So unlike me, I know. But I’m back today with a rather fun little recipe for you.  I thought it would be useful for we who live in small spaces or those with limited water resources. It all begins with a small container of yogurt and the fun part is that you use that…

CRANBERRY SQUARES

CRANBERRY SQUARES

Hello folks!  How are things in your neck of the woods?  Here on the east coast nothing much has changed as the dreaded virus is still amongst us…although in smaller numbers than in the rest of the world.  We recently celebrated our Canadian Thanksgiving…still thankful for so many reasons in spite gathering restrictions. Since it was just the two of us, I dug out my favourite recipe for slow cooker turkey breast.  It’s a great way to get that traditional…

LYNN’S APPLE DONUT CAKE

LYNN’S APPLE DONUT CAKE

In the mood for some Fall baking?  I hope so, because I have a good one for you this week. This recipe was sent in by one of my Galley Kat readers who thought it just might be perfect to try out in the Omnia stove top oven.  And she was right. Sometimes it’s hard to tell if there will be too much batter to fit into the baking pan, but this one was a perfect fit. When I licked…

LENA’S PLUM TART

LENA’S PLUM TART

Hey there folks. It’s another busy day in my galley and I really wanted something tasty for dessert. I searched in my stash of Friend’s Faves submissions and found one from Lena for a plum tart and I just happened to have seven little purple plums at the perfect stage of ripeness. Some flour, butter, sugar, a dash of salt and a generous amount of lemon zest and I had the makings of a very plummy tart. The plums were…

RUBY’S CINNAMON MONKEY BREAD

RUBY’S CINNAMON MONKEY BREAD

This is the recipe that started me off on a new tack when a friend found out I had a cooking blog and that I focused on easy to make, minimal boat-friendly dishes….and that onboard we are without a conventional oven.  She gave me this recipe of hers to try out to see if it would be appropriate to cook in my Omnia stove top oven.  The answer, a resounding YES!…and a new Galley Kat category was created: Friend’s Faves….

MARY’S BAKED FRUIT PUDDING

MARY’S BAKED FRUIT PUDDING

Hi there my Galley Peeps. Glad you stopped by today because, as promised, I have something for you to use up some of that leftover cake from my last post (Galley Cake Mix) I still laugh when writing that there is such a thing as leftover cake but here you go… One of my Peeps sent in this recipe quite a while ago and I thought it galley worthy. Simple in preparation.  Simple in ingredients. Yummy to eat. And a…

GALLEY BRIOCHE BREAD PUDDING

GALLEY BRIOCHE BREAD PUDDING

I wasn’t quite sure how to categorize this.  Is bread pudding a dessert?  Is bread pudding a breakfast?  You decide. With this simple recipe it’s easy to transition from a tasty ‘breaky’ of yogurt and fresh fruit to dessert or afternoon tea with the addition of a dollop of whipped cream and fresh berries. Cut the bread slices according to how it will fit into your baking pan.  Because I made mini brioche loaves, cutting the slices in half worked…

BRIT’S COCONUT DREAM CAKE

BRIT’S COCONUT DREAM CAKE

This cake is so rich. So sweet.  So very share-worthy. So what would possess me to make a whole cake when the very last thing I can do during this COVID crisis is share, I had to ask myself?  Oh well!  The next best thing I can do is eat the whole thing and share it’s yumminess with all of you virtually. I made a couple of substitutions to Brit’s original recipe. Coconut oil stood in for neutral cooking oil…
