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 [...]

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 [...]

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 [...]

Mmmm… brownies

I found this recipe a few months ago. Just reading through the ingredient list made my mouth water. Last week, I made sure that mascarpone cheese was the first item on my list (in my head). And what do you know… I had to go back to the supermarket a few hours later. The first [...]

Oreo truffles

My siblings and I had our first taste of Oreo cookies when I was a kid. As it was an imported item back then, it was a special treat when Dad brought home a package from the grocery store. I remember him doing this only once. I happened to click on when I was doing [...]
