Cappuccino cake

So, I’ve cheated a bit here, because I didn’t make this cake. My clever sister, Kim, made it. I used to make this cake. I did. A lot. It was actually one of the first cakes I made. But then, one day, Kim made it. Kim does not pay attention to proper measurements. Kim does not follow directions properly. Kim doesn’t even use the right shaped tin. But it turns out the cake is far better Kim’s way. So if we want cappuccino squares, Kim makes them, because only she really knows how. Come in to find out how

Prawn avocado salad

I would never make you a horrible salad. Let’s do healthy!

It’s been far too long since there was a Mars bar post around here. It’s also been far too long since I made brownies. The last time I made them was September! That just isn’t right.

Bleurgh. No vegetables in here, promise!

Apple cake with toffee sauce

Caramel is not my friend. I’m too impatient. I watch the pan for what feels like hours, and the sugar just stares up at me from the bottom of the pan in its original state. So I whack the heat up and before I know it the bottom has burnt while the top still hasn’t melted. So I throw it away and start again, and usually the second attempt works fine. Let’s make a second batch!

Tiramisu cheesecake

Just over a week ago, two things happened on the same day. Firstly, I made this cheesecake. Secondly, Chris broke up with me. I’m fairly certain the two are unrelated, just in case you’re worried that this is a cursed cheesecake. (more…)
