Ferrero Rocher Chocolate Cake.


Hello everybody.

My lovely aunt called yesterday saying she’d like to try one of my cakes, anything with lots of chocolate she said.


First thing that came to my mind was my usual daisies cake but then I thought why not to try another version, chocolate cake filled with chocolate cream and Ferrero Rocher and topped with the same.

Final outcome was really amazing and elegant, something all chocolate lovers will love for sure.

Hello everybody.
Well lunch today was two opposite dishes, first very old and traditional the other kind of new and modern. Had to do this to please everyone and hopefully to have enough leftovers for tomorrow.

Okra with olive oil, a simple dish with few ingredients, you simply fry okra with some olive oil till crispy, add chopped garlic and tomatoes. Add salt, pepper and chili and leave on very low heat till all done.

Prettiest Maqloubeh.


Hello everybody.

Today’s lunch was eggplant maqloubeh but with a twist.

Saw this method of arranging maqloubeh on Instagram, an easy nice way specially if you have guests.

You simply arrange eggplant slices around and in bottom of pan, cook rice in broth halfway then arrange meat and rice inside eggplants.After that add a bit of broth and keep pan on very low heat till all done together.




Caramel Cake.


Hello everybody.

Full busy day, order was apple pudding and teramisu cups, guess these elegant ones are a hit these days 👍.


I thought I’d send a small gift with this order, special clients deserve a special treat right?  Decided I’d try this cake that I pinned long time ago, been eager to try it cause it does look elegant and light.


End result wasn’t exactly like original photo but good enough I think. I changed a bit in the cream and added almonds to give an extra nutty flavor.

Ingredients and method :

Cake batter :

* 1 cups sugar.
*1/2 cup brown sugar.
* 1/2 cup butter.
* 1/2 cup vegetable oil.
* 3 eggs.
* 1 1/4 cup milk.
* 2 tsp baking powder.
* 1/2 tsp baking soda.
* 1 tsp vanilla.
* 2 1/2 cups flour.

* Beat sugar, butter and oil till creamy.
* add eggs, vanilla and milk.
* add baking powder, soda and flower.

*heat oven (medium) then bake the batter in two or three pans as you wish for 25-30 minutes or till dry from inside.
* remove from pans and leave to cool.


Meanwhile make caramel and frosting.

Caramel sauce :
* 2 cups sugar
* 2 tablespoons water.
* 2/3 cup butter.
* 1 cup heavy cream.

* heat sugar and water till it’s caramelized and reaches the color desired, add butter and stir well.
* remove from heat and add cream very slowly and mix.
Note: better use a deep pan to avoid hot sugar from splashing.
* leave to cool completely.


Frosting :
* 1 cup heavy cream.
* 2 envelopes whipping cream.
* 1/2 cup caramel sauce.
* beat all ingredients well till double sized and stiff.

Assemble cake in two or three layers stuffed with frosting and caramel sauce, I added some roasted caramelized almonds also.

Creamy delicious rich cake.
