Recipe: Summer Fruit Cake with Cream Cheese

I’ve got a great recipe for you today! I baked this cake more or less on a whim, because we had a lot of strawberries and flat peaches lying around and I figured it’d be good to bake something with them before they started to perish. The result: a wonderfully fresh, summery cake with strawberries, […]

Recipe: Coconut and Lime Bundt Cake

I don’t know what the weather is like where you live, but here in the Netherlands, we’ve had some pretty gloomy weather for the past couple of weeks.

Recipe: Apple and Olive Oil Cake (Lactose-Free)

Spiced Apple Tray Bake

I finally baked something again this week! It’d been a month since I last baked anything, and much longer since the last time I tested a new recipe and I was starting to experience withdrawal symptoms.

Orange and Almond Tray Bake [GBBO Bake-Along]

  The second week of The Great British Bake Off was Cake Week and there was drama galore! Apparently, it was a zillion degrees outside when they filmed this episode and the bakers had to temper chocolate inside the GBBO tent. Which of course went very badly. Which made me wonder (and not for the first time)… […]

Chocolate Cake with Strawberries and Cream (and chocolate ganache)

Two weeks ago, it was my boyfriend’s birthday, so of course I had to bake him a cake – it’s what I do! It was also my first time baking in the new kitchen, which has lots more space and has a dishwasher (I’m still not over this – I love it so much). Naturally, I […]
