Small Matcha Cake

Soft vanilla sponge, decorated with light and fluffy matcha whipping cream. The cream is the perfect balance between bitter and sweet. Suitable for all matcha lovers.

Okay, can I just express how proud I am of this cake? It’s a simple, small cake, but the taste is amazing. If you love matcha as much as I do, this cake is right up your alley! Even my boyfriend, who isn’t much of a matcha fan, loved this cake. It has just the right amount of bitter green tea and sweet sugar. In addition, the cake looks gorgeous and serves a small crowd (2-3 people). There is no better cake for real matcha lovers. You only need a simple sponge and green tea whipped cream. The latter might sound fancy, but it takes just three ingredients.

Pumpkin Hummus with a Kick

Smooth and creamy hummus made with sweet pumpkin. This hummus has a slight kick to it from the chili and contains no oil. Serve with bread or use as a dip.

It’s about time I shared a recipe other than baked goodies with you guys again. I can’t even remember the last time. The past few months have all been cookies, cupcakes and more. But today it’s time for homemade hummus! Pumpkin hummus. A while back I tried this store-bought pumpkin hummus in one of my taste tests (Dutch) and both me and my boyfriend liked it a lot. And so I decided to make my own version. A version without added sugar and less salt. It turned out delicious (if I may say so myself). I’ve made this hummus a couple of times now and each of those times the batch hasn’t lasted more than a few days. Gone in a jiffy. That good.

Soft oatmeal cookie with plenty of fibres and stuffed with chunks of cranberry. This recipe is exactly one cookie.

With a tall glass of cold (soy!) milk, this cookie is perfect for singles tea time. Read more

Single Serving Matcha Cookie

For the single matcha lovers out there: Single serving matcha cookie with creamy white chocolate chips. This cookie is soft and slightly chewy.

Are you a matcha (green tea) lover? I am! I love the slight bitter taste of matcha. Matcha is a very popular flavor in Asia. Last summer, when we were in Tokyo, there wasn’t a single place we couldn’t find a matcha flavored version of anything: lattes, cookies, cakes.. you name it! My bf isn’t a big fan, but I definitely am. Obviously, I couldn’t help myself and create a recipe for a single serving matcha cookie. Matcha is the perfect flavor for single serving recipes, because not everybody loves matcha. Read more

Best Blueberry Cheesecake Bars

Creamy blueberry cheesecake bars made with real blueberries. Finished with a good dollop of whipped cream and fresh berries. Dessert doesn’t get any better.

My bf and I, we’re lovers of fruit. We love fresh fruit (well, he loves it when it’s is served ready-to-eat). A couple of my favorites? Watermelon and mangosteen. Any juicy fruit to be honest. And as an avid baker I don’t just love the healthy stuff, but I also love sugary, fruit flavored, baked stuff. Yup, so good but so wrong! Life needs a bit of everything, right? Anyway, last weekend I decided to shoot my recipe for blueberry cheesecake bars. I love blueberries! And I love bars. Why bars? Because they’re quicker to bake than the real deal. In addition, the portion size is usually smaller than a regular slice of cheesecake (I love “mini” foods). Read more
