Apple Cinnamon Loaf

January 20, 2012

Loaf…….my new favorite word. Is this a cake? A bread? I don’t know… a mix of both? But because I am obsessed with my new loaf pan, I will just call it loaf. I would say it is a mix of a bread and a cake, but the flavor is what matters. I warned you that there would be plenty of loafs blogged, and this is the first of those many. If you have any suggestions, let me know. :)

My home boy Wayne (Whazzup Wayne?!) from work at 24 had his birthday today! :)  and for his birthday he requested lemon something. Thursday I went to both Whole Foods and Safeway and they had yucky lemons! :( So those will come another day and I found a rich and delicious replacement as far away from lemon as you can get! Prepare yourselves, ladies and  gents..these cupcakes will blow your brains!

Let me start out by saying that coconut anything is never my favorite, but when I bit into these cupcakes to test them I literally said “wow” outloud to myself. They are incredible. The coconut flavor is just enough without being overwhelming. I was going to pair them with a white chocolate buttercream but I was out of white chocolate…pff. So that will come another day! :) And I realized that I have not done a vanilla buttercream on the blog yet, which is pretty crazy. I’ve gotten many compliments on this icing, it isn’t too sweet and the texture is not anything like butter!

Vanilla Cake Pops

June 17, 2011

As you probably saw on my first cake pop post, I knew these little bebes would be a dessert I’d be making again and again. Now let me tell you, I have taken tons of treats to work for my coworkers, but cake pops seem to be the top request that I have been getting for the past couple of months since I first took some in. Funny thing is, only like 5 employees even got to try them but everybody is begging for them, due to their recent pop up in coffee shops.

I cannot believe I haven’t blogged this one yet. This is my favorite classic chocolate cake, no surprises or gimmicks, no pistachio or raspberry puree, but a wonderful cake paired with a classic creamy frosting that will melt your heart. Perfect for a rainy afternoon (yes, Portland weather is terrible) or any day you’re craving a little comfort food. This is usually the cake that I make for myself during finals.. :)

The cake does not require any softened butter, sour cream, buttermilk, or anything else fancy. It only includes ingredients that you should have in your cupboards at all times. Also, the cake calls for milk and oil, eliminating any softened butter. No softened butter? Shut the front door!

A Classic: Marble Cake

April 13, 2011

What is better than chocolate cake and vanilla cake in the same bite? Nothing. A childhood classic that is so moist it needs no frosting. Mhm, no frosting. It’s the perfect choice for brunch, an afternoon snack, or anytime you planning on having a cup of coffee or milk.

Cake Pops!

April 4, 2011

Omg….What took me so long?? These are so cute! I have heard a lot about these little bebes, browsed through Bakerella’s book Cake Pops at Powell’s, and recently have seen them pop up in coffee shops…PS, Starbucks did not invent these, they’re not that cool, okay? So anyway, it happens to be my sister Natasha’s 28th birthday, and it just so happens that she has recently become infatuated with cake pops at her local coffee shop. She even brought me one and said “I know yours would be better so I need you to make them.” So here I am…about to dive into the world of cake on a stick..

One Bowl Banana Cake

February 5, 2011

So I have a problem…

And my problem is when I go to the grocery store, either my bf or I think we are craving bananas and buy them….only for me to find overripe bananas sitting in our fruit bowl a few days later… However, there happens to be a million things to do with overripe bananas, including super moist banana cake! :)

Sour cream is a common ingredient in baked goods to keep them moist. This cake uses only a few ingredients, and only one bowl <—I’m a big fan! I hate doing dishes! This cake only needs two bananas, and is to be made in a 9×9 baking dish. My boyfriend’s Mother gave me a beautiful metal silicone mini bundt pan for Christmas, so I just made it in that! This recipe also works well if doubled which would give you a 9×13.
