Adding a layer of date paste infused with spices between the layers of batter lends a unique taste and texture to the baked cake making it extra moist. Add the nutty crunch of the walnut topping ,and the result is an irresistible blend of cake meets maamoul that you just have to try!
When you ask most people: what do you make with overripe bananas? the answer is banana bread 9 out of 10 times
and that is totally valid!
A great homemade banana bread that transforms brown sad looking bananas into fluffy moist goodness is hard to beat especially if you sneak in some chocolate chips or walnuts 😉
My kids LOVE bananas but we still get stuck with a few brown bananas especially in the summer when it’s hot. I usually peel those and save them in a bag in the freezer and when I have enough, I make this bread. It is super quick and easy to make!
and the best part is: all you need is one bowl
No fancy mixer
The bread freezes beautifully,too.
I usually cut it into slices, wrap each slice individually and freeze them. When anyone is in the mood for something sweet, all they have to do is thaw a slice for an hour, or heat it for a couple of minutes in the oven or grill it in the sandwich press (yours truly is guilty of the last one)
the moist cake layer is perfectly complimented by the flan..silky smooth custard topped with deep flavored golden brown heavenly caramel,in one word..perfection
Orange and spiced chocolate cake.. a walk down sweet memory lane
The perfect balance between sugar and spice in cake form! Delicious, moist, elegant and super easy to make! […]

This post is long overdue, this gorgeous cake was our daring bakers challenge for January (I know!) but hey, better late than never 😛
For the month of January Jelena from A Kingdom for a Cake invited us to start this year with a dreamy celebration cake. She challenged us to make the Esterhazy cake a.k.a the Hungarian dream. What better way to start the year than with a sweet dream?
The October Daring Bakers’ challenge was brought to us by Korena of Korena in the Kitchen. She took […]

The January 2014 Daring Bakers’ challenge was hosted by Francijn of “Koken in de Brouwerij“. She challenged us all to bake layered cakes in the tradition of Baumkuchen (tree cake) and Schichttorte (layered cake).
A tres leches cake, or torta de tres leches (from Spanish, “three milks cake”), is basically a sponge cake soaked in three kinds of milk: evaporated milk, condensed milk, and heavy cream.The tres leches cake is very popular in many parts of Central and South America.It is sometimes featured in cinco de Mayo celebrations. For this month it was our daring bakers challenge to make one.
The tres leches cake is super moist and decadent -as you might expect- but what is surprising is that it is not soggy. When you make the cake and pour the three milk mixture on it you will think “this is going to end in a disaster, there is no way that this little cake will absorb all this liquid” but it will!The cake’s ability to absorb all that liquid is due to the fact that the tres leches cake is made of a sponge cake base, sponge cakes as the name implies are full of bubbles. This distinct texture is why the tres leches is moist but not soggy
