Super Easy Blueberry Muffin

Super Easy Blueberry Muffin

This easy recipe for Blueberry Muffins are perfect for breakfast or at tea time. I specially love the smell of freshly baked blueberry muffins filling my kitchen..a great way to start a day...       Fresh blueberries will be great if available but the jarred or even frozen ones will also do well. I like to have my blueberry muffins still warm from the oven. I do not use muffin tins at all, I just double the muffin paper as long as they are sturdy enough to hold the shape while baking. Less to clean afterwards. Print…Read more→
Carrot Cake/ Cupcake Recipe

Carrot Cake/ Cupcake Recipe

  Looking for a Carrot Cake or cupcake Recipe?  Here is one that makes a moist, dense, flavorful but not so sweet carrot cake or cupcakes that is simple and easy to follow. I made the same cake for a friend`s birthday party last summer and used Cream Cheese Frosting. I was worried that the frosting may not hold so well or melt due to the warm weather. But to my surprise it endured and stayed in shape the whole day even at room temperature. I made this particular carrot cake you see in the…Read more→
Sturdy Cream Cheese Frosting

Sturdy Cream Cheese Frosting

This Cream Cheese Frosting Recipe is perfect for Carrot Cakes, Banana Cakes, Hummingbird Cake and most cupcakes and cakes if you prefer to cut on the excessive sugar that other frosting usually have. I was reading a lot of recipes in the internet but I was looking for something specific. I want the cream cheese frosting to be firm enough for decorating or piping and be able to hold really long even at room temperature or even a bit warmer. The thing is, all the recipes I saw requires a lot of powdered…Read more→
Puto Cheese

Puto Cheese

I so love this Puto Cheese recipe. So soft and fluffy and definitely better tasting than the Puto mix you buy in a box but equally  easy to make.  You will never think of buying ready mix Puto after trying this!   Puto is a kind of Filipino snack that is also oftentimes serve to accompany savory dishes like dinuguan (pork blood stew) or pancit (rice noodle). The traditional Puto is made from rice, water and sugar that is stone-grinded to make the batter. Then, of course, everything became easy when rice flour…Read more→
Easy Brownie Recipe

Easy Brownie Recipe

Brownies??? Of course I love them, I could probably eat a whole box all by myself (if nobody would stop me...like my inner voice is doing right  now after my third piece...oh well..) I have to confess though that this is my very first time to make them. Good thing I found this easy brownie recipe.Brownies has been on my 'to Try` list for a long time but I never actually got on doing it. Why ever! I mean, it is not that difficult to make and the ingredients are quite simple. I guess,…Read more→
Ensaymada Recipe

Ensaymada Recipe

I have been craving for Ensaymada for some time now. That soft, sweet bread covered with butter and sugar then topped with lots of grated cheese. Ensaymada was adapted from the Spanish Ensaïmada but has evolved throughout the years to become what it is now that is loved by many Filipinos. The province of Bulacan is famous for this bread. I remember when we were little and our parents would go to Bulacan (my mother's home province) for a visit, they would bring back home some special Ensaymada. Back in those days, it…Read more→
Banana Cupcake with Peanut butter-Caramel Frosting

Banana Cupcake with Peanut butter-Caramel Frosting

Banana cake or banana bread has been my favorite cake of all time! Banana cake with peanut butter frosting is actually one of the first recipes I wrote here. The combination of peanut butter and banana is just absolutely perfect. But wait! Why not make it even better, let us add caramel! After the long weekend and because it was the day after Easter Monday (which is also a public holiday in Germany), I was thinking of bringing a treat to my new colleagues. Oh yes, I forgot to mention that I am…Read more→
Chocolate Cashew Toffee Bars

Chocolate Cashew Toffee Bars

I made these Chocolate Cashew Toffee Bars as part of a Christmas-trio-packs to giveaway to our friends and neighbors, the other two were Chocolate Crinkles and macaroons. This was not the first time I made these bars actually, last year I came across a recipe for toffee bars using sweetened condense milk, I just altered the recipe a bit, adding this and that but still keeping it simple. It was such a big hit that I decided to make them again this year and they never seem to have failed me. But I am…Read more→
Banana Choco-Nuts Cupcake

Banana Choco-Nuts Cupcake

There were two a-bit-overripe bananas sitting on our kitchen counter. Nobody wants to eat them anymore just seeing the brown patches on the banana skin/peel, and maybe some parts are already a bit mushy. But guess what...they are now just perfect for making banana cake or cupcakes! Overripe bananas are sweeter and easier to mash. If you are not planning to use your bananas all at once and want them to last longer, here are some useful tips: When buying bananas , buy some that are still unripe, if possible, still a bit…Read more→
Baked Doughnuts without using doughnut pan

Baked Doughnuts without using doughnut pan

This soft and chewy baked doughnuts use yeast to rise and are baked without using doughnut pan. A healthier version than the deep fried doughnuts that you will surely love. Who doesn't like doughnuts? I believe everyone love them. In the Philippines there is a constant craze for doughnuts and I have seen people queue up in really long lines to buy boxes of them. But here in Germany, or at least in the area where we live, you are lucky if you happen to chance upon some in the groceries or bakeries.…Read more→
