Banana Cake with Peanut Butter Frosting

Banana Cake with Peanut Butter Frosting

  When it comes to cakes, as far as I can remember, Banana Cake has always been my favorite, and so, it only made perfect sense that it was the very first cake that I tried baking way back when I decided to learn the craft. I have to admit though, the first few attempts were not so successful- it was either too sweet or too dry or too moist and ,at one time, even burnt!!! But after trying different recipes and many attempts, I am now able to say, I have the perfect…Read more→

I like cakes and cupcakes that are a bit moist. But how do you achieve this? Is…Read more→
How can you make cake bake evenly all the time???

How can you make cake bake evenly all the time???

It is annoying when after having found a perfect cake recipe and doing all preparations meticulously, then only to see the finish product to be not as perfect as it should look. Either they turn out lopsided or have a 'dome' in the center because of uneven rising during baking. I read somewhere that others use flower nails, like the one in the picture on the right, and place it upside-down it in the middle of the pan. They say it evens out the heat while baking and avoid that the sides to bake faster…Read more→
Preparing pans before baking

Preparing pans before baking

  Most recipes call for the pans to be greased and floured prior to baking as this will prevent the cake from sticking to the sides and bottom of the pan. I have tried the greasing and flouring method and it worked fine for me...until I learned about greasing and lining method! It is more hassle free than the grease and flour method. For one, the cake will not have the added flour that will turn out as crumbs all around the cake when baked which could sometimes make a bit of mess if…Read more→
Ingredient Alternatives

Ingredient Alternatives

I know it is sometimes difficult to find certain ingredients that some of the recipe requires. And it could be disheartening and discouraging for others to try on making or creating dishes or pastries that they really like because the ingredients are not available in their local market. So I thought I make a list of alternatives for some ingredients you can use for baking or cooking:   Alternative for Buttermilk Buttermilk is common here in Germany and is really cheap. But one time I was planning to make a Marble Cake and…Read more→
