The WhiteOut Cake

So, Mr K’s mate at work turned 30 today. So rather than make another dark chocolate cake, I decided to make the Vanilla & White Chocolate Cake found in Baked: New Frontiers in Baking. I made this cake over 2 days – bake the layers one day and then ice/frost the next day. I read [...]

Another post about blueberries..

So… after lunch today I decided to make a Blueberry Crumb Cake for dessert after dinner. I saw that The Pioneer Woman had a recipe on her site and it was on my list of things to try. After all, we have a freezer full of blueberries and can spare a couple of cupfuls for [...]

Big Chocolate Cookies

A few days ago, Annie’s Eats posted this recipe on her blog. Her photos are so incredible, I can almost taste the cookies! Almost, but not quite… so I printed out the recipe and decided to make a batch. As I didn’t have enough chocolate drops/bits, a whole block of dark chocolate went into the [...]

BAKED brownies

Yep.. this is the 3rd recipe I’ve tried from the Baked book. And I have to admit, I really REALLY wanted to drizzle the tops of the little brownie cakes and the big pan with a LOT of chocolate ganache. But I held back. After all, I’d already used 350 grams of good chocolate in [...]

Malt-Ball Cake

When I saw this recipe in the Baked book, I thought, “Hmm.. interesting…”. It’s 9:30 pm and I’m waiting for the last of the cupcakes to finish baking so I can make the frosting. See, the husband has to go to work at 2:30 am tomorrow (in 5 hours time), and I thought why not [...]

Sweet and Salty Cake

I love cook books – especially ones with LOTS of pictures. I don’t have a collection of cook books (even though I would love to have one). However, my local library does and I usually “max out” my library card whenever I visit. What’s even better is I can order the books from the library’s [...]

Of Lemons and Other Things

We have 2 lemon trees in our garden. One came with the house, and the other was a tiny little shrub that we transplanted 3 times before we were satisfied with its location.

I love cupcakes – both the making and eating parts. And I love cupcake cases. They make the simple cupcake look so pretty and dainty. I’ve amassed a small collection and I must say, I’m on the lookout for some more!

Chocolate Oat Cookies

Last week, Miss S and I spent a day with friends. This means that us 2 mums relax while the kids entertain themselves. We had chocolate oat cookies with morning coffee and afternoon tea. These cookies were the most delicious oat cookies I have ever eaten. Golden, soft, chewy and chocolatey. I asked my friend [...]
