i was slapped with one week worth of medical leave since last thursday because i was having the flu. it’s the sixth day today and i was so bored that i decided to bake. i’m up and about now; what’s left is a niggling itchy throat that still makes me cough periodically.
i’ve been wanting to make something with streusel for the longest time and i’m glad i did. this cake is a breeze to make and it’s wonderful eaten warm from the oven.
it is sufficiently moist and the crunch of the streusel definitely won me over.
order from a secondary school friend for her son – chocolate cake layered filled with strawberry slices and covered with chocolate ganache,
mum’s birthday peach baby-heartcakes with buttercream,
for a friend’s birthday – raspberry cupcakes with cream cheese frosting,
for two other friends’ birthdays – lemon cupcakes with cream cheese frosting,
and an order – peach cupcakes with cream cheese frosting.
these were made for a best friend’s birthday earlier this month. i love how the chocolate, peanut butter and marshmallow-y rice krispies melded; such sinful pleasure. 🙂
recipe from here.
