Carrot cake bars. Moist and fluffy. These bars get their moistness from the grated carrots. Each bar is stuffed with plump raisins and crunchy walnuts. Finally, you can’t make a good carrot cake without cream cheese frosting.
After quite a few vegan recipes, I thought it was time for some “normal” baking again. So for my boyfriend’s birthday a few weeks ago, I decided to make carrot cake. Because I was short on time, I went for bars rather than a cake. Bars are so convenient because:
- Take less time to bake than most cakes
- Need little to no decorating skills
- Are easier to transport
I’m happy to say my bf’s co-workers loved these bars. Well, most of them anyway: Some were scared these bars would taste like carrots. But I promise you, carrot cake bars taste nothing like carrots. The carrots only provide moisture and no flavor at all. All the flavor comes from the spices, raisins and chopped walnuts. Trust me, carrot cake bars are a must try! Read more
Smooth matcha lava cake. The lava is thick, sweet and gooey. This recipe is very easy to make and serves exactly one person.
We’ve gone too long without a matcha recipe guys! My last one was about 2 months ago. That’s crazy. So I’m back with your matcha fix. As usual, this matcha recipe serves a small crowd. Well, not even a crowd to be honest. Just one person. I’m combining my love for matcha and my love for single servings with this recipe: Single Serving Matcha Lava Cake. That’s right, LAVA! I love the classic chocolate lava cake, but matcha makes everything better if you ask me. And just like the small matcha cake, my matcha-disliking-boyfriend devoured this cake. He even asked for another cake. Compliments don’t get better. Read more
Soft basic sponge cake filled with plenty of Chantilly cream (sweet vanilla whipped cream) and fresh sweet strawberries. Perfect as a birthday cake. For best results, make this cake when strawberries are in season.
Meet my strawberry and cream birthday cake. Okay, calling it a birthday cake is a bit weird because basically any cake can be a birthday cake. However, this type of cake reminds me of birthdays which is why I call it a “birthday” cake. You can just call it “cake” though 😉 Also, this cake is probably my favorite kind of cake: A fluffy sponge with creamy, light whipping cream. As I’ve mentioned before, buttercream is not really my cup of tea. Whipping cream is totally up my alley though (although my lactose intolerance doesn’t really agree lol). And my bf.. he is even more in love with whipping cream. He’d marry it if he could lmao. (I wish I was kidding.) So if you’re anything like me/us, this cake is going to rock your world.
Rich sour cream cake stuffed with strawberry jam and chocolate, topped with fresh strawberries and chocolate chips.
Aaand we’re halfway the week! That means I’ve got a new recipe for you guys. After multiple single serving recipes, I thought it was time for something bigger. So this time, I’m sharing a large coffee cake; suitable for at least 16 people. This coffee cake is made with sour cream, which makes it super moist and fluffy. In addition, this cake has a layer of strawberry and chocolate in between and is topped with plenty of fresh strawberries and chocolate chips. As many chocolate chips as you want!
