Today’s twist in teramisu was that I used chocolate Easter eggs as cups, removed top with a sharp hot knife, filled them with lady finger biscuits dipped in coffee and cream.

Oreo and Caramel Popsicles.


Good evening everybody.

Long busy day since early morning guess Sumner events started already!
Was invited to a big family breakfast gathering at my uncle’s house and as usual I love to bring a special dessert or dish with me so today’s pick was something new, Oreo and Caramel Popsicle.

Though recipe is very easy and simple but it’s a bit messy process specially dipping in chocolate and arranging them in a nice arrangement.

Oreo ones consists of crushed Oreo (24 pieces)  with two tablespoons of heavy cream all mixed well then formed into balls, freeze for two hours then dipped in chocolate.

Caramel ones consists of sweetened condensed milk cooked well till thick and caramelized mixed with plain or Lotus biscuits.

Taste was great but I’m not pleased with final look, next time I’ll decorate them differently,guess process needs more patience 😀

Almond Tuilles.


Hello everybody.

Today’s order was various, both salty and sweet stuff. One was za’tar puffs and cheese cookies the other was chocolate,ginger crinkles and sable.

Sometimes when the order is for a close friend I love to try something new for testing and feedback,today I did these super easy crispy thin almond cookies. So east to make though you must be careful baking them, next time i’ll swirl them when hot to give them a nicer shape.

Ingredients and method:

  • 3 large egg white.
  • 1 tsp vanilla.
  • 3/4 cup sugar.
  • 1/3 cup vegetable oil.
  • 1/4 cup flour.
  • 1/2 cup chopped or slivered almonds.

*Beat egg white till all white and stiff .

*Add vanilla.sugar ,oil and flour.

*Fold in almonds slowly, don’t over beat or mix.

* Grease a biking tray well with oil then some flour. ( very imp to grease well cause cookies tend to stick)

* add a tablespoon of batter then flatten it with back of spoon into circles.

* In a 180 degrees heated oven bake cookies for 10 minutes or till golden.

* leave to cool , you can swirl them while hot but you have to be very careful not to break them.

Red Velvet Crinkles.


Hello everybody.

Invited to a breakfast gathering this morning,so I thought a small gift box filled cookies would be great. Any homemade food made with love even if simple and small would mean a lot.

I prepared dough for both chocolate  and red velvet crinkles yesterday and baked them this morning.

Red velvet ones are first timers but I did the chocolate ones before, always a success.

Ingredients and method of red velvet crinkles :

* 1/2 cup butter.
* 1 1/2 cups suger.
* 1 pack cream cheese.
* 2 eggs.
* 3/4 cup cocoa.
* 2 1/4 cups flour.
* 1 tsp vanilla.
* 1 1/2 tsp baking powder.
* pinch of salt.
* 1 tsp red food coloring.
* 1 cup caster sugar.

* beat butter and sugar well till creamy then add cream cheese and whisk well.
* add eggs and vanilla.
* whisk in flour, cocoa and baking powder.
* cool dough in fridge for 4 hours.
* make small balls and cover with caster sugar then arrange all on cookie backing sheet.
* press each ball a bit so as cookies are crinkled.
* heat the oven well then decrease temperature till medium and bake for 10-13 minutes exactly.
* leave to cool well then store in a well closed jar so as not to dry.

Very easy and good looking though I prefer chocolate, taste is more rich.

Doughnuts 💝



Hello again.

Been craving homemade doughnuts for a while but not in the mood for frying or honestly no need for extra calories these days.

But today I thought what the heck, never keep something nagging at the back of your head, so I took out this very old recipe that might be my grandma’s by the way and made them, small amount but worth it.

Ingredients and method :
* 1/2 cup warm water.
* 1 tsp instant yeast.
* 2 tablespoons sugar.
* 3/4 cup warm milk.
* 1 tablespoon butter.
* 1 large egg.
* pinch of salt.
* 2 1/2- 3 cups flour.

wpid-wp-1445957617221.jpg wpid-wp-1445957632809.jpg

* mix water, yeast, sugar, milk together till a bit frothy then add rest of ingredients.
* knead well for 5 minutes then leave to rest and rise for 1 hour.
* flour your kitchen surface well then roll the dough  somewhat thick
* using the cutter size you like cut the dough to circles then punch them in the middle with a smaller size cutter.
* leave to rise again then deep fry in well heated oil.
* decorate with anything you prefer, glaze, chocolate, strawberry syrup or simply caster sugar and cinnamon.

A bit extra work but worth every bite.
