Nina James got to meet some new friends and I learnt how to make a Brooklyn Blackout cake

September 25, 2014

nina-jame-and-friends

Yesterday a bunch of our friends who hadn’t yet met Miss Nina James came to the house to see her. It was so nice hanging out with everyone and Nina even managed to stay awake for about 40% of the visit, she just sort of quietly stared at each person who held her, she was probably wondering how the hell so many giant faces could fit in one room at the same time.

Baked magic that I wish I could sink my face into.

Pistachio cream cake

Here are some of the flipping delicious looking things that I have pinned lately and drooled over. I’m so happy to have my sweet teeth back, whilst I was pregnant I craved salty things more that sweet, which is really not like me, but I’m happy to say that that has all changed. I could take any of these cakes out right now with my bare hands and face, no fork needed.

All the recipes are below each photo.

cheesecake doughnuts with salted caramel

Found this site today that has loads and loads of flipping delicious looking recipes on it.They are even categorised, so if you are in the mood for say, dumplings or potatoes, vanilla flavoured things, Japanese, pasta or say, cheesecake doughnuts with salted caramel, then you’re all sorted. You just click into the different sections and off you go.

Speaking of cheesecake doughnuts with salted caramel, I will literally pay someone cash-money to make these sons-of-bitches for me and then bring them to my house – you will also be expected to feed them to me, a thank you.

Anyway, if you’re stumped for what to make for supper or more importantly dessert, check this site out, I seriously doubt you’re going to regret it.

Easy chocolate cupcake recipe.

chocolate cupcake

I’m always trying out new cupcakes recipes, for vanilla and chocolate cupcakes specifically – I have made some really nice ones in the past and some that are so so. Yesterday we had the Durrants over for lunch, so I thought it would be a good opportunity to try out the recipe below, plus I woke up in the morning feeling like cupcakes – Are you surprised? No, neither am I. I also wanted to mention that I have added a new category to the left of my blog called My Recipes, which includes all the recipes I have tried out by myself that I have found online, in books and from friends.

Cinnamon and Sugar Mini Donuts

July 9, 2014

mini-donuts-16

The other day my very pregnant face and I really felt like cinnamon and sugar donuts, so I looked on my ‘baked goods’ board on Pinterest for an easy recipe that I remember glancing over a few weeks back, which I even bought a mini muffin tin for the last time I was at the shops. This recipe has very few ingredients and the end result is reached super quickly. I literally made these in a few minutes and then literally ate like 8 of them in a few seconds.

I actually feel like them again, now that I’m typing about them. Damn sweet teeth.

Brownie sandwich cookies with salted caramel creme filling

June 25, 2014

choc-chip-cookie-1

I’ve been trying out different cookie recipes in the hopes that I will come across a nice one that we can use to make ice-cream sandwiches for Father. This is recipe no.3 that I have just tried out and not only was it a nice, quick and easy one to follow, but these suckers came out pretty delicious. They’re a little soft and chewy and the ones that I baked for a minute less worked quite nicely with an ice-cream filling because they remained a bit soft.
