Double trouble with this particular variation of a Chocolate Banana Bread Recipe

Double Choco Banana Bread 1 - Double trouble with this particular variation of a Chocolate Banana Bread Recipe

So I guess I’m breaking my self-made tradition of posting pastries made with liquor on the first week of a new year, just because somebody drank all the booze I was supposed to bake with and I just wasn’t in the mood to go out and buy more. So instead I thought I’d write about …

Banana bread chock full of my favourite energy boosters

Whenever I’m in need of an energy-boosting sugar hit, there are two things I tend to turn to: 70% chocolate, and a banana smothered with peanut butter. The first is pretty self explanatory, though it’s not technically “sweet”. They say chocolate stimulates the release of endorphins in your system, and I think that’s true considering …

Of course you need another banana bread recipe!

After blogging about tea on my previous post, it seemed my mind naturally gravitated towards a recipe that goes well with tea. Heaven knows there are about a million desserts and cakes that match well with tea, but I was in a real mood for a classic this time. It’s been a while since I …

Biscoff and autumn are a nifty combination

I’ve sung this song a million times before, but it’s simply inevitable that I feel this way around this time of the year. I can’t help it! I can’t quite hold back the green-eyed monster when all the beautiful orange-hued photos with scarf-wearing people in them begin popping up everywhere. I can’t help wishing that …

When life gives you an abundance of ripe bananas

It just might be one of the simplest problems to solve in the life of a baker: You open the freezer to find you are faced with not one, but two ziplock bags full of frozen overripe bananas. What would be your next step? Why, immediately run up the stairs and go through that pile …

My first Cookie Butter encounter

I realize although I am technically a food blogger, I don’t tend to stay on top of the food trend. Sure I hear about some of them inevitably, but it isn’t my attitude to bandwagon. Of course unless it’s something I genuinely like. My ramen phase is understandable because I have a fierce love for …

{Dearly Dreaming Dorie} Discovering rum in baking

I’ve never used rum in any pastry before. It’s not because we don’t like alcoholic beverages in the house or anything like that. I admit that I don’t drink, but we do use wine in cooking often enough. All this time, I’ve either been too lazy to go out of my way just to buy …
