My Own Birthday Cake

It’s my birthday!! Well actually my birthday was earlier this week but this is my celebratory post! Does anyone else like to bake their own birthday cake, or is it just me? I just love to cook/bake so it makes sense that I would make my cake (and eat it) too. Plus, since I started…

Chocolate Crepe Cake

This was a good one. I made a crepe cake. Yes, cake made of crepes (and whipped cream). It’s a beautiful thing. I made this for my dad’s birthday over the holidays and he absolutely loved it. This was my first time making crepes (and crepe cake) and I was super excited. I used the…

Cinnamon-Apple Cake

Like I alluded in my last post (Pesto Spaghetti Squash), I am doing themed fall recipes (this week and next week). This week I am using APPLES! 🍎🍏 Apples are such a versatile fruit because they can be used in sweet and savoury recipes. The first recipe I have for you is a cinnamon-apple cake….

Zucchini Banana Bread

I always seem to have overripe bananas at home. I get a bunch of bananas at the store and a few days later, they’ve passed their prime for me to eat. My favourite thing to do with them is bake! The obvious (and delicious) choice is to make banana bread/muffins. What I’ve made isn’t just…

Passover Apple Cake

Happy monday. I hope everyone is hanging in there. It’s about half way through passover and I’m feeling pretty good about it. I’ve eaten many of the forgotten cookies that I posted on friday (link here) and they have been the perfect sweet treat. For a little change though, I decided to make a cake….

Recipe #46: German Chocolate Cake

Just wanted to start this post by saying happy holidays to everyone. No matter what you celebrate – Christmas, Chanukah, Kwanza – I hope you are with the people you love and eating lots of good food. I celebrate Chanukah so I’ve been eating my fair share of jelly doughnuts and potato pancakes (in hebrew:…

Recipe #28: Easy Carrot Cake with Cream Cheese Frosting

I don’t think I have ever made a carrot cake but after making this one, I will definitely be making it again. If you are looking for a beginner recipe, this is it. What makes it even better is the cream cheese frosting. Yum. It’s also one of those cakes that seems like it can’t…

Recipe #22: Lemony Almond Blueberry Cake

This was my first cake from this cookbook. Almond, citrus and berry sound like quite a good combination so I was excited to make it. I’ve also never done any gluten-free baking so I wanted to see how that turned out too. As you can see from the picture, my slice is not very tall…

Honey Cake

Wow September is pretty much over. A new month is about to start which is aligning with the start of a new jewish year. It is the holiday called rosh hashanah (“head of the year”). Jewish people like to celebrate by eating lots of sweet foods because we want to have a happy and sweet…

Lemon Cucumber Cupcakes

I know my first 2 cucumber recipes were a little more traditional, this last one was definitely out of the box. I really wanted to see if there were any recipes that used cucumber in desserts. There were surprisingly more recipes than I thought there would be. I ended up choosing this cucumber and lemon…
