Pumpkin Ginger Cake with Pumpkin Cheesecake Topping

Here’s a cross between a cake and cheesecake. The base is a moist soft pumpkin cake with added candied ginger for a little heat. The topping is a thin layer of creamy pumpkin cheesecake. The cake is baked just until… Continue reading →

Pumpkin Molasses Muffins

I especially recommend these to anemic individuals like me. Blackstrap molasses add not just great flavor, but also iron to the muffins. From the other hand, if you are not a big fan of blackstrap molasses, or if you find… Continue reading →

Nut-Free Energy Bars

I love to pack things like these to my kid’s lunch box. They are full of healthy ingredients and right calories. It is a bit of pain to find something similar in stores. There are plenty of energy bars, but… Continue reading →

Crunchy Seed Cookies

Awesome cookies, exactly as the author’s saying – “noisily crunchy, light, addictive”. The recipe is by Alice Medrich. I just used a bit more seeds since the stated amount wasn’t quite enough. It does seem like I’m not keeping up… Continue reading →

Backyardigans Cake

This cake is one of my most recent creations, for an adorable little kid who obviously likes the Backyardigans TV series. The name of the birthday boy is five letters long, the exact number of characters, so I thought it… Continue reading →

Summer Grilling: Grilled Eggplant (my favorite way) with Goat Cheese, Fresh Basil, and Fire-toasted Bread

Finally, it seems like it’s summer here. Vancouver can’t ever brag about its early summer, but this year the cold and rainy spring seemed particularly lengthy. As soon as the weather permitted, and the tedious task of grill-cleaning was accomplished,… Continue reading →

Gift Box and Dog Cake

The cake was a present to my best friend’s daughter who is a big canine lover. Since it’s was a gift I decided to make the cake literary looking like one – a gift box filled with the birthday girl’s… Continue reading →

Dulce de Leche Rice Pudding

The pudding of pure dulce de leche flavor. There are people who either love or can’t stand the rice puddings. But there’s a chance for the latter to be converted if they try this particular one (I happened to witness… Continue reading →

Coconut Streusel Coffeecake with Pineapple Vanilla Filling

I intended to post before holidays, but with the Easter marathon of the Russian kulich-baking, pascha-making, and egg-dying I simply couldn’t find time. I hope you all had wonderful holidays. This cake is for serious coconut lovers, since it has… Continue reading →

Buckwheat Wholewheat Cream Cheese Cake

Maybe, this cake doesn’t have “the looks”, but it’s got everything else. I would even dare to say it is perfect – so tender, moist, with sweet buttery taste (with not that much butter inside). If you wish, you can… Continue reading →

Chocolate and Honey Banana Mini-Cupcakes with Luscious Honey Cream Cheese Frosting

These little cupcakes are very good on their own – soft, light and moist, with tiny specs of grated chocolate, but simply outstanding when frosted with this super-creamy honey cream cheese frosting. What makes the frosting so special is the… Continue reading →

SpongeBob Cake – Camping Episode – Sea Bear Attack

My dear son is turning 9 today. He is still faithful to old SpongeBob. This year the cake is a scene from his favourite episode (and not just his, I have to admit I love this one too). Tim actually… Continue reading →

Guinness and Malt Irish Whole-Wheat Bread

I baked it mostly out of curiosity. It is quite unusual, liquid batter which is prepared the way the classic Irish bread is made – from the cold butter cut into the flour and cold buttermilk mixed in. Besides the… Continue reading →

Mushroom Onion Scones

These scones, as all perfect cream scones should be, are light and tender inside, crispy outside, and full of flavor throughout. I like making them in advance and freezing unbaked. I bake the scones close to serving time without defrosting,… Continue reading →

Fitascetta Onion Covered Bread Ring

This is another uncomplicated, but delicious bread. And how can this not be good with almost two pounds of onions slowly sautéed in butter as a topping?! I usually put the dough after its first rise in the fridge overnight…. Continue reading →

Ultimate Mexican Brownies

Generously spiced with cinnamon and cayenne, filled with ancho and fig puree, and glazed with cinnamon ganache, aren’t they truly the ultimate Mexican? I’m craving the sun, heat, sandy beaches, and another Mexican vacation. Sadly, this vacation, although very much… Continue reading →

Pokemon Ball Cake

I have to admit I’ve known very little about Pokemon until recently. My own kiddo has no interest in this theme, so I had to rely on the internet sources to educate myself. Now I know at least a couple… Continue reading →

Marzipan-filled Honey Cookies

These are fabulous cookies. Every time my cake decorating projects require marzipan, I make a double batch, so I could use it also as a filling for the cookies. It’s not quite necessary to decorate or shape them into hearts… Continue reading →
