so far, donna hay hasn’t disappointed. these are spongy shells with a sufficiently moist crumb. i also like the fact that most of her recipes do not require many ingredients.

glazed mocha fudge (cup)cake(s)

May 23, 2007 at 1:07 am | Posted in Cakes, Chocolate, Coffee, Cupcakes | 7 Comments

admittedly i’m not a fan of mocha, but after tasting these, i might just give it a chance. but only when it comes to cakes. i still can’t stomach the drink.

the recipe yielded a 8 inch round cake (for a friend’s mum) and 12 cupcakes. if you make it all in cupcake form, i reckon you’ll get around 24-28.

i baked a batch of these today for my wonderful friend of 10 years, sarina, whose birthday was last week. i didn’t manage to meet up with her because of the crazy exams, so we’re doing dinner tonight. this cutesy box of cookies is one of the gift-installments.

fudgy chocolate cream-cheese swirl brownies

we are going for a fun-filled frolic in the park tonight, so i thought it’d be a good idea to bring some food. i made a substantial and very chunky mushroom soup, to be swiped with bite-sized foccacia pieces (bought, not baked!) and for dessert, we’re going to have these.

going bananas

May 1, 2007 at 7:47 pm | Posted in Cakes, Fruit | 12 Comments

i caught sight of a very lonely banana in the kitchen yesterday, so i decided to make mini banana cupcakes. i’ve been waiting to try this recipe, and it turned out excellent. easily the best banana cake i’ve ever tried. (i hope those who try this agree!) it’s very fluffy and moist. the only thing i’d recommend is increasing the amount of banana – you can never have too much fruit!



next time i’d make it in the larger cases and pipe a dollop of cream cheese frosting. that’ll be the bomb.
