This cake is one of the first ‘different’ cakes I learned to bake, once I restarted baking, around 7 years ago. Growing up, I mostly baked simple vanilla or chocolate cakes, nothing else. When I started living by myself, 7 years back, I got a tiny oven and rediscovered my love for baking 🙂 I started exploring more recipes and flavours and this became one of my go-to cakes. Easy, delicious, fragrant and just the right amount of fruit. What’s not to love?Continue reading “Easy Apple Cake”
Banana cake is always such a comforting dessert. Simple, delicious and familiar. I have a few banana cake recipes on the blog : the classic, with chocolate, with tahini and one with coffee 🙂 Bananas provide a great base to work with and complement quite a few flavours. So the latest thing I’ve tried is banana and rum!
We are all at home, trying to stay positive, get our work done, connect with our loved ones, rediscover lost interests and hoping for the best outcome in this crazy scenario.A little baking therapy is a great way to bring a smile to your face (and to those around you), make you think of easier times and feel a wee bit better. Lemon and rum are all about sunshine-y days, positive thoughts don’t you think?
It’s always a great feeling when you try something for the first time and it blows your mind, right? You never think the flavours will work or wonder who came up with the idea and are so glad that they did! That’s what my reaction to Zucchini Bread was 🙂
Strawberry season is just about over and I managed to grab a last bunch of luscious strawberries just in time. This delicious loaf is super easy to make and a great way to make those berries sing 🙂
I’ve always been fascinated by upside down cakes. The caramel-y fruit that is so easy to cut through, the soft crumb and the beautiful combination of fresh and baked fruits. What’s not to love?
I tried baking a plum upside down cake once and it was a disaster (I need to remake and fix :)) and while baking this cake, it looked like another disaster was in the offing. But, lo and behold, it turned out perfectly ♥️♥️
