Kruidnoten Apple Cake Bars 

Sinterklaas month!

Have you heard about the Dutch holiday called “Sinterklaas“? It’s a Christmas-like holiday for kids. In The Netherlands, Sinterklaas is celebrated on december 5th. And in honor of this holiday, November is the month of Sinterklaas recipes on WT. This year I’m starring “kruidnoten” in all of my recipes. Kruidnoten are very crunchy cookies and contain a bunch of spices.

Last week I shared the first recipe with these cookies: a kruidnootjes pie. For today’s recipe, I combined the kruidnoten with a moist cake to make these beautiful Kruidnoten Apple Cake Bars: A crunchy cookies base paired with a soft apple cake. To make the cake look extra festive, I topped the cake with almond flakes and crushed kruidnoten. My favorite kruidnoten are from Albert Heijn (Dutch supermarket, not sponsored) by the way. If you can’t find kruidnoten in your country, sub it with an equal amount of Biscoff or gingersnaps. Read more

Single Serving Apple Crumble

Single serving apple crumble. Plenty of buttery crumbs, chunks of sweet apple and a big dollop of vanilla ice cream (optional). No waste and no over eating.

FINALLY finished my test guys! So I’m back in business. For the past few weeks I’ve been studying my ass off. The test was last Tuesday so the outcome is out of my hands now. Time to relax. Time to bake. And because it’s the month of new year’s resolutions, I decided it’s time to share my recipe for single serving apple crumble with you guys. Yup, apple crumble for ONE. No wasting food, no over-eating. And if you feel like being extra healthy, find someone to share this single serving with and you’ve got dessert for two. My boyfriend and I did anyway. And as for vegans: swap butter for vegan butter, find your favorite pint of vegan ice cream and enjoy a delicious vegan dessert for one. Who needs friends when you can have dessert for one right? (Juuusst kidding. Love my friends ♥)

Apple Crumble Muffins

Fluffy, buttery muffins with a crunchy topping of crumbs and filled with soft pieces of apple. These spiced muffins are better than store-bought.


Here I go again with the muffins. Sorry -not so sorry-, I just love love love making muffins. They’re so easy to make and easy to eat on-the-go too. Today, I’ll show you how to make the best moist and fluffy apple muffins with a crunchy crumbly top. These muffins are loaded with cinnamon so they’re perfect for this season. For this recipe, I used Gala apples. Why? Because I had those on hand and was too lazy to take another trip to the supermarket lol. You can basically use any apples you like. Granny Smith’s would be great too. It just depends on what kind of apples you like. So be lazy like me and use whatever you have on hand. Read more

So, have I transferred my ecstatic-ness (That’s not a word My Linh. I know. 😛 ) onto you yet? No? Then let me share some more details and eycandy (aka: VIDEO time!).
