My first real cake, made with delicious coffee-flavored buttercream. It was really good, and simple! Because this cake doesn't require leveling, you can simply bake two layers separately, then stack them — a perfect recipe for beginners! :-)
I made my cake with normal instant coffee, but you can also use decaf coffee for same taste, but caffeine-free cake! :-)
Do you remember the butterscotch recipe? It ended up being the icing on the cheesecake I made recently. It's a terrific, although a bit heavy, recipe that will be a perfect alternative for a birthday cake or any other celebratory cake — it's very dense, and will easily yield 12 or more portions and leftover cookies! :-)
I was always afraid of making caramel from scratch, but it turns out it's a piece of... cake ;-) This creamy, buttery and smooth caramel cream is delicious on a crisp cake, or as a drizzle. Prepare some upfront and store it safely for 7-10 days in the fridge.
I always wanted to make these, and finally got the guts — oh boy, I wasn't really prepared for the amount of nitty-gritty with making these. I started with original German recipe that called for 500g of almonds, but that ended up being 2 full baking sheets and lots of sneaky snacking between steps ;-) But the result is good, and these cookies are worth the effort.
Ramen is a delightful soup served piping hot with wheat noodle and lots of vegetables — a perfect dish that you can prepare quickly for a healthy autumn dinner or a light lunch. You can customise it almost indefinitely with ingredients you like: eggs, meat, vegetables and rice cakes. I will show you how to prepare a simple, but very tasty ramen based on bonito fish stock (bonito dashi) and eggs.
