Banana Nut Mini Cheesecakes

Made these scrummy mini banana nut cheesecakes to test out my new Baker’s Pride loose-bottomed tin and they turned out great. The boyfriend will now have the honour of carting the lot to the office tomorrow and we will see how they are received by this co-workers. The pan itself was a delight to use and it produced a very even bake. Pleased with purchase. God bless Amazon.

Been meaning to do this for a while now, one of those tray-bakes that end up being cut into delightful squares and stacked on top of each other. Tray-bakes are also fun and easy to do, with a million varieties just waiting to be explored. Today I made my first which was meant for a tea party I was meant to attend.

Buttery Marble Cake

I like old-time favourites like this simple butter cake which I then turned into a visually pleasing marble cake. It is moist and flavourful, with a generous hit of chocolatey goodness. No icing needed … just the way I like it. Mmmm, I think I will have more tea with my cake, please.

Classic banana bread. You can rarely go wrong with this choice of cake. So wholesome and comforting, it will bring a smile to anyone who chomps on a slice. Cut into thick slices and smear with hazelnut spread for something extra.

Orange Tea Poppy Seed Cake with Cream Cheese Frosting

There I was, trying to use up as many ingredients in my pantry as possible before the cleaners came to rearrange everything in the house. I had asked a friend round for tea and thus, I had to dig out a few cake-making appliances despite me having packed them all up a week ago.

Decadent Chocolate & Raspberry Friands

Stuck with a punnet of raspberries and a boyfriend who’s been threatening to throw them out if they are not used, I quickly delved into my cookbooks and came up with these decadent little choco treats. Wonderful little teatime treats, they would be a welcome sight on any table.

I had to try this recipe out for coz it’s so super easy, and I haven’t made dessert in a long while. A unique recipe that uses an entire orange dumped into a food processor, skin and all, to make this amazingly moist cake by Annabel Langbein.

Bake Club Challenge: Oreo Bottomed Brownies

Brownies go down fast in this house; how can they not? They are sooo delicious, one slice is never enough. I made these for March’s Bake Club Challenge and I made some personal changes to the original recipe simply because I do not like nuts in my brownie. This brownie variety was kinda made up in the middle of the night and it turned out to be a keeper. Another one for my brownie file.

Rosehip Tea Cheesecake with Vanilla Genoise

A daring break from the usual cheesecakes I normally do, this one made use of my favourite tea blend. The results were surprisingly decadent and pleasing in every way. This one has cake inside, as opposed to a biscuit crumb base.
