Chocolate Chia Pudding with Orange Flavoured Prunes

It always helps me to tame the chocolate cravings without consuming any processed sugar. Surprisingly, even a small serving is quite satisfying. The pudding takes no time to make, it just needs a couple of hours in the refrigerator to… Continue reading →

Alduin the World Eater Dragon Cake

The World Eater is now facing danger to be eaten! When we asked our son to make a wish-list for his upcoming birthday, the only thing he wrote there was to have an Alduin cake for his birthday party. Under… Continue reading →

Chocolate and Mocha Chantilly Mini Trifles

These chocolate cubes at the bottom are actually Alice Medrich’s “Chocolate deception” cake that I failed to unmold and extracted in two pieces. I should have known better that this kind of cake wouldn’t be easy to separate from the… Continue reading →

Valentine’s Day Roses and Pearls Cake

I wish everyone the most romantic Valentine’s Day! This heart-shaped cake was a Valentine’s Day surprise from a loving mother to her son and daughter-in-law (quite a nice gesture on her behalf, if you ask me). There’s a ton of… Continue reading →

Chocolate Cocoa Nib Cherry Biscotti and Chocolate Coconut Macadamia Nut Biscotti

Here I am speeding up the baking process. These two different in taste biscotti are made from one chocolate dough.

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 →

Chocolate Wasabi Shortbread Cookies

Spicy, salty, chocolaty sweet, delicately sandy, but also crunchy… In other words – delicious cookies. I’ve already blogged about my love to this flavor combo. Spicy wasabi ganache I dipped the shortbread in is exactly the same one I used… Continue reading →

Chocolate Ricotta Loaf Cake

The cake is sort of a lighter version of classic pound cake. Ricotta cheese replaces half of the butter which results in no less delicious and outstandingly moist cake. Good quality cocoa, chopped chocolate, and a double shot of espresso… Continue reading →

Brioche with Chocolate Banana Cardamom Jam

I often make brioche dough on Friday, bake it fresh for Saturday breakfast, and turn the leftovers into some kind of bread pudding on Sunday – very little fuss, really, and a lot of appreciation from the family. The brioche… Continue reading →

Chocolate Prune and Cereal Meringues

I was improvising to satisfy my son’s sweet tooth. Nut meringue are surely nice, but when the kid is allergic to all possible nuts existing, barely sweetened cereals make acceptable substitute. Bittersweet chocolate and some chopped prunes cut the sweetness… Continue reading →

Chocolate Rice Pudding with Caramel Crème Chantilly

This kind of dessert is my comfort food during sometimes seemingly endless rainy Vancouver days. It’s creamy, chocolaty, sweet and soothing.

Double Chocolate and Cherry Scones with Crème Fraiche and Cherry Preserves

These chubby hearts, bumpy with chocolate and dry cherries, although very suitable for Valentines Day breakfast in bed, were made for my poor kiddo who had to stay at home with sore throat and missed all Valentines Day fun in… Continue reading →

Chocolate Coconut Cupcakes with Caramel Buttercream Frosting

I had almost started making these when I realized I was out of praline paste. I did want the frosting to be caramel, but I didn’t have neither intention nor time for making praline at that moment. Instead, I quickly… Continue reading →

Chocolate Matcha Poker Chip Cookies

These are actually easier to make than it might seem. The process is similar to forming the Checkerboard cookies, only here the core is a matcha-colored cylinder which is subsequently wrapped into striped dough (alternating chocolate and matcha strips), then… Continue reading →

Chestnut Chocolate and Hazelnut Cannoli

Yes, it’s this time of the month. And the current Daring Bakers’ challenge is Italian cannoli hosted by Lisa Michele of Parsley, Sage, Desserts and Line Drives, who chose the recipe from the cookbooks Lidia’s Italian-American Kitchen by Lidia Matticchio… Continue reading →

Chocolate Thumbprint Cookies with Fleur de Sel Cardamom Caramel Filling

The first thing that comes to mind when I hear “thumbprint cookies” is a jewel-like, jam-filled vanilla cookies. And they are delicious (if the jam is good), no doubt. But this time I decided to shake it up a little…. Continue reading →

Raspberry Hot Chocolate with Raspberry Marshmallows

This drink is rich and very good. It’s supposed to be served in tiny demitasse cups. The quantity stated below makes 4 servings; I don’t think that double dates is a common way to celebrate Valentine’s Day, so you can… Continue reading →

Dulce De Leche, Cinnamon, and Chocolate Bread Pudding

I’m gravitating to the comfort food lately that can be informally spooned from a bowl while sitting on a sofa and watching Sponge Bob with the kid. I know I will pay the price later exhausting myself with some sort… Continue reading →
