Homemade Vanilla Extract

Homemade Vanilla Extract

A friend (Hi, Pam! ü) gave me some vanilla beans many months back. I was only able to open it last month as I was planning to make vanilla bean cupcakes but that did not happen for some reason. I thought I’d make a batch of vanilla extract first after seeing it somewhere and finding […]

Red Velvet Rose Cake

Red Velvet Rose Cake

You’ve probably seen this cake around the web, the rose cake..it’s pretty isn’t it?

Steamed Chocolate Cake

This cake is really easy to make (of course it is or I would not have bothered) and expect a delicious cake at the […]

Swedish Visiting Cake

Swedish Visiting Cake

One of the simplest and delicious cakes out there and easily one of my favorites, too.  I can’t believe that I have not posted it here yet, I thought I did.  Anyhoo, like I said this is very easy and your home will smell unbelievably delicious when you make this-imagine warm lemon, vanilla and butter… […]
