ٍStrawberry Cake.


Hello everybody.

Invited to another breakfast at my cousin today,very busy eventful week right?

Just this morning I decided to do this cake to take with me, my friend’s famous recipe ( Suhaila’s cake I call it) usually done with cherries but strawberries will do .

Very delicious as usual ,all gone in minutes.


Ingredients and method:

* 5 eggs separated.

* 2 coffee cups (small like espresso cups) (فنجان قهوه ) vegetable oil.

* 4 small cups sugar.

* 5 small cups flour.

* juice and zest of a lemon.

* 1 tsp vanilla.

* 2 tsp baking powder.

* pinch of salt.

* cherries or strawberries sliced.

* beat egg yolks,oil,2 cups of sugar,lemon zest and juice,baking powder and flour together very well, batter will be a bit thick in texture,

* beat egg whites,remaining 2 cups of sugar and vanilla very well till frothy and creamy.

* fold in batter into egg white mixture and mix well but not hard.

* pour mixture in greased oven pan,then arrange pitted cherries on top.

* bake in a medium heated oven for 10-15 minutes then lower heat to minimum till top is golden.

* cool then add icing sugar as decoration on top.

Enjoy and thank you dear Suhaila for this amazing cake recipe.

Beautiful Birthday Cake and Fitness Bars.

Hello everybody.

Too many occasions and birthdays  today,though nobody celebrating lives here but I did this beautiful cake anyway, lucky day for Jona my housemaid cause it happens to be her birthday also and she celebrated with her friends and ate the cake,well most important is that someone became happy eating it nevertheless.Happy Birthday Aya,AJ,Salma and happy anniversary to my beloved sis Reema, love you all.

Cake mix is the same as the Cherry Cake I did before but baked in a big rectangular pan to a thin sheet cake,then I added strawberry jam,cream and chopped strawberries and rolled all together like a Swiss Roll, covered with cream,toasted coconuts and finally decorated with strawberries and pineapples.

This cake reminds me of cake patisserie shops long time ago when we were kids in Jabal Al- Hussein,we used to walk to this small shop called Milano just to buy it,yummy yummy.

I also made these Fitness Bars,found a bit old Fitness pack in my pantry this morning,after a quick search in many websites I invented this no ingredients recipe, just mixed Fitness flakes with some butter,peanut butter,toasted wheatgerm and oats,coconut,raisins,brown sugar then added honey till mix is sticky then baked it for 20 minutes,cut to bars when cooled ,great breakfast energy bar,tasted exactly like the ones you buy from stores !

Oh lunch was sweet and sour from yesterday and I made some green fava beans in olive oil (فول بالزيت)
