I wanted this post to be prettier so I could really let the glory of my new mini loaf pan to sing, but alas, I haven’t used my digital camera in months, and I really need to start documenting my recipes again. Searching through my browsing history just isn’t cutting it anymore. But. Whatever. I made my first banana bread earlier this summer and I was unnecessarily shocked at how tasty it was. Finally made it again, with a few modifications. Also, a new CATEGORY: “vegan” !
I had a Costco double chocolate chip muffin last weekend for the first time in multiple years, and it was so nostalgic that I needed more. But not 12 more. I tried to search on Google for a copycat recipe, but they all started from box cake and instant putting, which is just too much work for me.
Instead, I started from my ever-so-reliable moistest chocolate cake recipe, bumped up the flour by 1/4 c, and added 1/2 c of cocoa powder covered chocolate chips. I baked it in a parchment-lined loaf pan, since I don’t have larger muffin tins, but will say that it was an absolute hit. The loaf pan took over an hour to bake through, so I may try a cake pan next time.
Will definitely make again! Sorry no pics – disappeared into our bellies in a quick minute.
A cake that looks like a baseball! Sports! Heh. Made this for a friend’s birthday a few months ago, a small cookies and cream cake, with swiss buttercream frosting (separate post). The cake was pretty moist. Cookies and cream buttercream was good, but I think could be a bit sweeter like a real Oreo. Overall, I thought it was delicious!
I made myself a (fake) birthday cake, and liked the decoration so posting it here! My forever go-to moistest chocolate cake recipe, with whipped chocolate ganache frosting. Not for the feint-of-heart chocolate lovers. One more pic after the jump.
A roll cake! My favorite treat from an Asian supermarket is the coffee flavored roll cakes. But I try not to buy them because that means finishing the entire thing in a few days… I think this was pretty successful! Maybe overbaked the cake just a tad, but relatively easy assembly with fun serving 🙂 This was also my first chiffon cake! Which I haven’t tried in a regular cake shape, but plan on doing soon as the search for a white cake recipe continues.
I’ve made a couple of ice cream cakes over the years, and my method is improving. But I think I’ve got a pretty solid method (and ice cream ratio) figured out now! So here it is. Read more
There really should probably be a category here called “Variations on my favorite chocolate cake recipe” because it’d probably filter half the recipes away. NO SHAME. I love that cake and I would do anything for it. Read more
I made this cake for Josh a few monthns ago! I have some notes, but no full recipe since it was not perfection imo. Read more
Longest blog post title ever, but there’s not really a simpler description for this cake I made for Rose’s birthday this year. Which obviously dates this post to basically two months delayed, but um, better late than never? This was definitely one of my best cakes of the year. Look at that beautiful lavender color of the frosting – so pretty! And I swear it was tasty to boot, we have witnesses.
Ok, this was one of my best ideas in a long time. S’more cake!!! Really just a new assembly of existing recipe I have in the recipe box already. Flourless chocolate cake, marshmallow frosting, and toasted graham cracker crumbs. Deee-freaaking-LICIOUS. Read more
