  • To a ramekin or a small baking dish add the chopped walnuts.

Notes

Please note: let it cool, you know it’s ready when there’s no “ jiggle “ in the center. If you are vegan you are more than welcome to leave out the egg or replace with 1/4 cup of mashed banana. Apple sauce should work as well. Feel free to leave out the walnuts if you are allergic to nuts. Berries or chocolate chips would be lovely as well. If you want to triple it or make a big batch of this you definitely can as I have had friends on my page bake it into a small cake instead. My ramekin is about 8oz.

Hi! I'm Sneji. Nice to meet you!

I am more commonly known as “The Modern Nonna” on social media where I create easy home cooked meals with a modern twist. I was born and raised in Sofia, Bulgaria and learned how to cook at the best culinary school in the world – my grandma’s kitchen. I lived in Greece on the Island of Crete with my parents for a while and then moved to Toronto, Canada when I was in grade 5. I started to really cook and experiment with food 11 years ago when I was 21 years old. Everything I currently know is a reflection of some part of my life…

    Such a simple and delicious recipe to throw together that I make it 2-3 times a week! Sometimes I add blueberries and/or raspberries for a little twist and it’s delightful! Thank for sharing!

    1. Soooooo happy. I don’t count but please feel free to plug in the ingredients into an app such as my fitness pal 🙂

    1. Hi there,
      Absolutely. So sorry that I didn’t clarify ( I will fix the recipe description as it’s an old one ) I used a small ramekin which is about 6 oz. Ramekins work best for this recipe
