    Carrot Cake

    It is not the first time I am baking a carrot cake but it is definitely the first time I am really happy with the way it tastes and looks.   This is by far my daughters favourite cake. Every time there is a celebration – birthday, Easter, Christmas etc. – my girls ask for this cake and I can’t blame them really.   The flavour brought by the carrots combine with walnuts and the cream cheese cream is just sublime! I can say that this will be our family cake.   I made this for Easter so its quite a while since then – you will have to forgive…

    Sugar Free Lemonade

    Now I did call this a lemonade in the title but this drink actually has more orange juice than lemon juice.

Using a lemon squeezer and an orange one squeeze the juice out of the fruits in a big enough container. My hubby got me the squeezers below and I love them. They can be found everywhere(Amazon, Dinghams) at the moment and…

When I look at the pictures I get the feeling of fresh and spring so if you already celebrated Easter I am sure that you could still bake the cupcakes and decorate them for Spring instead. Well that if you actually see any signs of spring where you are 🙂 Here we still have a lot of rain and it’s still chilli – not at all like spring I must say. 5.0 from 1…

    Low calorie apple and cinnamon muffins

      A while ago I was sent some of the best ingredients and asked to replicate one of the recipes from the Baking Mad website. And so I did. Tried out the recipe for apple and cinnamon muffins. You can of course find the recipe on their website by clicking the last link above. However, I had to adjust the ingredients as the ingredients didn’t come together quite well. I added a tiny bit more flour – 50g – as the batter was a bit too floppy and I was afraid that they will not raise. I still baked some muffins where I didn’t add the extra flour and they…
