Wedding craft

I always thought I’d end up being the type to piece together all the components for my own wedding (making the dress, making and decorating the cake, making cards) …oh how wrong i was. There’s too much pressure involved in that all; but i figured there was a way i could still add my personal touch to...
Eid Al Fitr and Cupcakes

Eid Al Fitr and Cupcakes

I dont always bake for a large congregation, but when i do-it’s normally eid day and i want the treats i bake to be perfect and enjoyed by everyone to it’s optimum. Unfortunately, YET AGAIN, the cupcakes i baked this eid did’nt quite fit my ideal of perfection and lacked in that  moistness i was...
White Velvet Cake

White Velvet Cake

This blog post was due to be up weeks ago but i got caught up with preparing for my travels to Dubai! So, this recipe was inspired by my love for that distinct  red velvet cake taste. Not too sweet but just about right! As you may or may not know, red velvet cake typically...
Hazelnut Chocolate and Cinnamon sugar Buttermilk Pancakes

Hazelnut Chocolate and Cinnamon sugar Buttermilk Pancakes

Phew, that title is quite a mouthful…much like these pancakes :p. I had a few people inquire about today’s mouthwatering breakfast so I thought I may as well put it up on the blog. This is in no way a healthy recipe (well, that looks pretty obvious). Of course, you can omit some of the...
Home-made Chocolate Waffle Dessert

Home-made Chocolate Waffle Dessert

Sorry guys, this isn’t exactly a recipe post. More like…a dessert construction post? Everything is ready made or just requires some dicing, melting or toasting. Soo, me and my siblings were supposed to go out for waffles and “bonding” time this weekend, but in the end- we decided to just resort to making it at...

HALLO guys and galz. First off, Eid Mubarak. Hope you all had some splendid last few days. I know i did! I spent it with my family (who for once, all turned up at my aunt’s house) and i wouldn’t have wanted to spend it any other way. You can probably tell i’m pretty old-fashioned....
How To: Mini Chocolate Birthday Cake

How To: Mini Chocolate Birthday Cake

HALLO. Hope you are all well, healthy and happy! If not- you can always cheer yourself up with this mini chocolate cake 😀 (even if it’s not your birthday). There’s nothing special about this cake other than the fact that it’s more miniature-sized, but i think that’s what makes it seem so much more appetising?...
Chewy American Style Cookies

Chewy American Style Cookies

You know, i’m always baking, but it’s only occasionally that my baked goods come out EXACTLY as i want them. I woke up to my little cousin tugging me and asking me to come bake cookies with her on saturday morning. We had no internet connection so had to resolve to grabbing a recipe off...
The Perfect Brownies

The Perfect Brownies

I’m not sure if i have posted a brownies recipe on here before? As far as i can remember, it’s only ever been photos (mainly because i always went along as i baked and didn’t bother remembering measurements etc.) , BUT this recipe is by no means something plucked out from my unreliable memory. It’s...
Eid And All Things Cupcake

Eid And All Things Cupcake

Woah. It almost feels foreign being back on here…i hope you guys haven’t been left disappointed by my abnormal absence and seeming abandonment of the blog. It has not been abandoned. I just had security issues with my laptop which lead to security issues with my blog! Anyway my super talented tech-savvy twin saved me...

HALLOW BEEPAL So, there’s a box of strawberries in my fridge and my mum is all like ‘oooh zeinab eat the strawberries before they go bad, make them into a smoothie with the avacados even, those were a hit back in kenya.’ Avacados and strawberries? Why didnt i think of that before?! GENIUS. Did you...

She goes out of her way to experiment with and perfect recipes and shares her findings with other baking enthusiasts. Honestly, i now know where to turn to if ever i’m...
