San Francisco and Apple Crumble Loaf Cakes

The other day I was checking my Instagram feed and I saw a friend of mine post a lovely autumn picture of orange trees lining a long road somewhere in New York. I immediately felt a bit sad, maybe just a tad jealous, mostly because I feel like I’m stuck here and she’s enjoying herself …

I constantly dream about autumn baking

I love autumn. It’s a major reason why I love autumn baking, because it really makes me feel the arrival of autumn down to my bones. The only problem is I live in the tropics, where autumn is virtually non-existent. Perhaps the closest thing we have to autumn here is the slightly chilly, windy December …

I’m glad I changed my mind about Chai and made this cake

Before I begin to heap praise upon praise for this recipe, I just have one quick question: Do you like Chai? At the beginning I didn’t like Chai. At all. It reminded me of this particular childhood stomachache medicine that my grandmother used to force into me whenever my tummy went bad. I asked her …

Low-fat Oatmeal Banana Bread for my soul

I’ve been having such a rotten streak lately and I absolutely hate it. Since my last post, a couple of things happened that have left me feeling like someone drowning in a fountain of emotion, and today finally, I am drained and fatigued.

Flour Bakery’s I-understand-why-it’s-Famous Banana Bread + Cookbook

{Dearly Dreaming Dorie} The most amazing Mango Bread

I’ve been waiting for mango season to roll around, and in my neck of the woods, it finally has! One of the best perks about living in a tropical country is that we’ve got mangoes all year round, however the best and sweetest of the crop are harvested around this time. The mangoes here in …

Autumn Sunshine Pumpkin Bread

I cannot remember the last time I had Pumpkin Bread. Or to be honest, if I’ve ever had any at all. I know, I know, I’ve been missing out haven’t I? Actually, pureed pumpkin isn’t quite popular locally, and neither are pumpkin pastries. The people here are big on sweet potatoes and bananas in their pastries, …

{Timeless Treats} Luscious Banana Bread

There’s something about Banana Bread that makes me remember my childhood the most. When I was a child of 3, I started going to Pre-School, and among the things I fondly remember from that time are running around with my little friends in my sailor-style uniform, my adorable bob that made me look like a …
