Happy Valentine’s Day everyone! Whether you’re celebrating with a special someone today, having a Galentine’s day, or just want to treat yourself, we have the perfect easy treat for you 🙂
This is a great last minute treat to make if you’re scrambling for ideas on what sweet treat to make for your Valentine today. You can either enjoy them yourself or package them up in a nice little treat box or cellophane baggies and give them out as gifts! Either way, you can’t go wrong.
Here are all the ingredients you’ll need:
White chocolate wafers (any white chocolate will do)
Pink chocolate wafers (optional)
Pink, red, and white sprinkles
First, melt your white chocolate and pink chocolate wafers in separate bowls. We microwaved ours in a microwave safe bowl in intervals of 30 minutes as to not risk burning the chocolate. After each interval, stir vigorously until the chocolate is fully melted.
It finally feels as though spring has arrived. For the first time in god knows how long, the sun is out! The day is also longer so that means there will be more opportunities for me to take food photos 😀
I’ve always loved nutella but for some reason I never got around to buying it. I took the plunge last week and decided to see how many dishes I can make with it as it feels like the possibilities are endless. To start, I decided to make Nutella Crepe with mixed berries. But I thought why stop there? Why not make a Nutella Crepe Cake! And hence the idea was born.
Guys, this tastes as good as it looks. Imagine layers upon layers of Nutella! This gives you the satisfaction of eating multiple crepes (because we all know you won’t be satisfied with just one) in a few slices.
Indulge yourself and make this super easy to make crepe cake!
Beat eggs, milk, butter and vanilla extract together. In a separate bowl, mix all dry ingredients together.
Slowly add the dry ingredients into the wet ingredients and combine with a whisk. Do this in several batches to ensure all dry ingredients are evenly incorporated
Heat a non-stick skillet over medium heat and add a ladle full of the crepe batter into the centre and quickly swirl it around the pan to ensure even distribution. Once the sides start curling up and you see some air pockets forming, flip it to the other side to cook for a couple of minutes. Do this for all the crepes.
Meanwhile, heat up the nutella for about 45 seconds or until it has a very smooth consistency. This will help it spread easier.
Once all the crepes are done, start assembling the cake. Take one crepe and spread nutella on top. Then add another crepe on top. Repeat until you're down to your last crepe.
Hope you all had a great weekend. I spent all of Sunday cooped up in the apartment with not much to do. After doing as much cleaning as I could tolerate, I decided to do some baking. Originally I wanted to create some Domo brownies but those didn’t turn out as well as I planned 🙁
I’ll include a picture of it anyways just for laughs but needless to say, I probably won’t be using buttercream frosting next time to make the mouth
I found this brownie recipe online a while back and fell in love with it ever since. Unlike the other brownie recipes I’ve had in the past, this one actually tastes like real chocolate and not like the ones you make out of cocoa powder. It’s also not overly sweet which is good for people who are watching their sugar consumption. Needless to say, I’ve made modifications to this recipe over time 🙂
These brownies are cakey, chewy, and fudgey all at the same time! Best of all, they’re not super dense which is the way I like it. I didn’t make a frosting for this as I feel that would be overkill on the sweetness. In my opinion, this is the best brownie recipe I’ve found so far to date.
I brought this into the office the next day and they were a total hit! So if you want to be a hit among your family and friends, you have to try this.
Whisk flour, salt, and baking powder into a small bowl. Set aside. Meanwhile, spray an 8 inch baking pan with some cooking spray.
Melt chocolate and butter over a double boiler, stirring constantly to prevent the chocolate from burning. Once completely melted, remove from the heat and whisk in the sugar and vanilla. Allow to cool for a few minutes until chocolate is no longer super hot.
Whisk in eggs once at a time, fully incorporating each one before adding the next. Continue to whisk until the mixture is completely smooth and glossy.
Slowly add dry ingredients 1/3 at a time and whisk until it's all incorporated.
Pour the batter into the prepared pan and bake until a toothpick comes out with wet crumbs. If it comes out completely clean, you've overcooked it! This will take approximately 25-30 mins depending on your oven. Always check before your anticipated cooking time to prevent over baking.
Cool brownies over a wire rack for at least 3 hours to allow the brownie to set. Cut into squares when ready to serve.
Be sure to wrap these up in saran wrap or put them in an airtight container or else they will dry up.
I love chocolate cakes but more often than not, the cakes I have are dry and lacking that rich chocolate flavour that I’m looking for. In preparation of my dad and I’s birthday tomorrow, I was once again tasked to make another birthday cake. Kinda sad that I had to make my own birthday cake actually… but not really since I do enjoy doing it so I don’t mind 🙂
This is the first time that I tried making this chocolate cake recipe. I decided to modify the original recipe slightly so that it had more of a coffee taste to it. I wanted to make a coffee cake but everytime I google’d coffee cake, I get traditional coffee cake, and not coffee flavoured cake -_- so I kinda had to make this one up on the go.
I was extremely satisfied with the end results. Despite the fact that my cake almost overflowed in the oven because the batter doubled in size and my cake pan wasn’t large enough, it all turned out well. The cake was very moist and rich in chocolate flavour. This recipe is going down in the books – will be making this again. It was sooo good 🙂 It wasn’t too sweet either so that’s a plus!
A few weeks ago, I bought a bunny cupcake kit from Homesense which got me really excited because
a) I love bunnies
b) I love baking
Easter is coming up so this gives me an excuse to make bunny themed desserts!
I also saw this as an opportunity to work with fondant as I’ve never used it before. I’ve seen people make bunny cupcakes where it looks like a bunny is falling through a rabbit hole so I wanted to recreate it. Though I feel like the results could’ve been better, I’m pretty satisfied with the results 🙂
