Tripple Chocolate Loaf Cake

For the past year or year and a half I have been absolutely obsessed with watching certain YouTubers. I have come across some that I literally do not go a day or week without watching! One YouTuber in particular who’s name is Tanya Burr, makes baking videos and also has her own book that is now out called Tanya Bakes.

Me being the chocolate lover that I am, I absolutely had to make this delicious cake. The cake is super moist and the chunks of chocolate add such a great touch to it. So lets get right into it :)!

Note: I did not have castor sugar, and if you don’t either no need to worry. What you can do is take granulated sugar and pulse-blend it until the texture is superfine.  You can use either a magic bullet ( this is what I did ) or you can use a hand mixer. Just make sure not to over blend.

If you would like to watch her video on YouTube you can find it here.

Enjoy :D!

What you will need:

1 Loaf tin

1 cup unsalted butter

200g (7/8 cups) of castor sugar4 eggs

1 1/2 tsp baking powder

150g (1 cup) of self raising flour

60g (1/2 cup) of cocoa powder

100g of white chocolate

100g of milk chocolate

100g of caramilk chocolate

 

Directions:

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees

2. Cream together butter and sugar till light and fluffy

3. Put in the 4 eggs and you can add vanilla if you’d like

4. Add in baking powder then gradually add in the flower

5. Add in the cocoa powder

6. Fold in the chocolate chunks

7. Cook for 40 minutes. Depending on your oven you may need more or less time. So make      sure to check around 35 minutes!

8. Drizzle remainder of white chocolate

Caramel & Swirled White and Milk Chocolate Chip Cookies!

Hi everyone!! Today’s post is yet another cookie recipe :D. I’m clearly always on the search for great cookie recipes! There just quick and easy to make and they make for great snacks when you’re on the go or when you need to satisfy that little craving of yours :)! The recipe can be found here. Hope you guys enjoy making these as well, but be careful because it’s hard to just eat one ahaha!

Note: I decided to not add the chopped pecans, and I used swirled white and milk chocolate chips instead of white chocolate chips. So you can always play around and add to your own preference.

Soft Brown Sugar Cinnamon Cookies!

And I’m back again with another cookie recipe… what can I say I love soft chewy cookies ahaha. I waited all week to make these until I went into my pantry and realized I didn’t have anymore brown sugar. I was determined to make these, and I had a craving for something sweet! So… google to the rescue of course. Keep reading to see how I made this recipe work.

If you’re out of brown sugar, you can substitute it with regular sugar and add 2 tablespoons of molasses for each cup of sugar. The reason for adding the molasses is because regular sugar will make your cookies crispy. If you like your cookies more on the crispy side then you can simply just use regular sugar. Of course I did not have molasses! But hey any baker needs to learn to improvise at some point and thats how great recipes are made. If you don’t have molasses you can substitute it for maple syrup.

You can find the recipe for these delicious cookies here.

A little side not for what I did:

1 1/3 cup sugar mixed with 2 1/2 tablespoons of maple syrup.

Chocolate Cupcakes & Buttercream Frosting!

As you can see I’ve sort of taken a break from obsessing over cookies and now I’m on to cupcakes ahaha. I searched so long to find a great chocolate cupcake recipe that was moist and simply delicious. I finally came across one, while also adding a few things of my own with the help of my grandmother! So lets get right into it.

Cupcake recipe found here. It says to use 1/2 cup plus 1 tablespoon hot water, instead I did 1/2 cup hot water and 2/4 tsp of instant coffee mixed with the  1 Tablespoon of hot water. It really was not a lot but I chose to add it in, you can definitely add more if you’d like. I also added 1/3 cup of plain vanilla yogourt.

As for the frosting I used the same recipe I used for my last cupcake recipe because it turned out so great. When I find something that works well I like to stick with it for a while until I really have the time to experiment a little bit more. The recipe for the buttercream frosting can be found here.

Vanilla Cupcakes with Buttercream Frosting!

For this weeks post I bring to you a nice moist vanilla cupcake with a delicious buttercream frosting! I always struggled with getting the right consistency when frosting my cupcakes and I finally got it this time… lets just say I’m extremely proud of myself :$. This is a very easy recipe which can be found here. What I liked about is the fact that it was quick and did not require much time to make, the frosting as well took very little time.

Another reason why I love making cupcakes so much is because you can have as much fun as you want with them. Getting creative and decorating is ALWAYS my favourite part :D. So I decided to crush some Oreo thins and sprinkle them over the frosting while adding a piece of Hershey Cookies ‘n’ Cream on it!

Note: In the recipe for the frosting where it says 2-4 Tablespoons of milk, I actually used 1 Tablespoon of Milk and 1 Tablespoon of Whipping cream.

Crepes Anyone?

So this is not a baked goods post, but I still consider crepes to be a dessert! Lately i have been craving them, so I decided for breakfast why not look up a quick and easy recipe. Thats exactly what I did and I whipped a few. What I also love about crepes is that you can dress them up however you like. In the pictures that will be show below I simply just sprinkled some icing sugar. But you can easily cut up some fruits, add nutella or whichever chocolate you like, whip cream, maple strop. Honestly, the list can go on :). Below is the link to the recipe!
