Food

P1040338 editted

Traditional karidopita is definitely an indulgence. It is usually made with breadcrumbs, lots of butter and sugar. This variation uses rice malt syrup and raw honey for sweetness and contains a lot less butter than traditionally used. Ensure you use a good quality butter – we recommend an organic and grass fed variety. This recipe is gluten free, grain free, paleo and lactose free and is easily adaptable to be dairy free. It is full of warming spices and an earthiness that makes it a perfect winter dessert.
