Rich chocolate sponge filled with vanilla whipped cream covered with milk and white chocolate ganache, finished off with Lindt Lindors and chocolate coated oreos.

Chocolate cake recipe [link] chocolate ganache recipe is in the topping ideas for my basic cake recipe [link]

I have been baking with Oreo's long enough to know that once you start adding them on top of cakes and things they go soft very quickly so I decided to cover them in chocolate to try and slow that process down as it needs to stay good until tomorrow afternoon at least. It was fun but very time consuming, it took as long to decorate to oreos and Lindors as it did bake the cake and make the ganache! It still makes me laugh making such beautfil and cute things while listening to such bands as Marilyn Manson and Metallica!

It's been a very long time since i have got to make my rich chocolate sponge, the last time must have been my youngest daughters 1st birthday 1 and a half years ago so i felt a little rusty making this so I ended up making two, a trial cake for the family to try and approve (which they loved by the way!) The other for the girlfriend of an old friend i went to college with 10 years ago whose birthday it is tomorrow. I felt very honoured being asked to make this cake as i haven't really seen George since we all left college all those years ago, just the odd time we see each other in town and chat on facebook so i was very pleased he trusted me enough to make this for him after him saying he has seen all my food creations on facebook and thought it about time he try some of my creations himself.

My attempt for :iconstill-life-stills: monthly recipe challenge [link]

I made a few adjustments to the recipe, firstly i replaced the wheat flour for gluten free, i made the recipe as cupcakes rather than a whole cake as my kids prefer cupcakes and i also sliced some of the apples to put in the top as well as chopping chopping them up into cubes and a sprinkle of granulated sugar on top.

I have never even considered making a chocolate cake with apples in so really was not know what to expect, glad i gave it a go though because it worked really well.

Never feel guilty about eating cake at breakfast again!
Banana, raisin and sultana cupcakes topped with Cheerios coated in honey.

As always i used my quick and easy cupcake recipe [link] This is really great to experiment with different cereal toppings and combinations, though once decorated serve straight away else the cereal will go soft.

If anyone recognizes what TV show the mug is from, you rock!

Vanilla cupcakes with melted chocolate and crunchy white, dark and milk chocolate sprinkles.

I am a sucker for bargains so when i was buying my daughters mini smarties sprinkles for her birthday cake i got these as well and have been waiting for an excuse to finally use them. Today i fancied making something really quick so decided to decorate some left over cupcakes i had waiting to be used up with them as an after tea treat.

If you don't happen to have any cupcakes laying around then you can make your own with the following recipe.


More from the same cupcakes i had to use up.

I call it a semi trifle because to me a proper trifle must have whipped cream, several layers and ideally in my family if there is time jelly (or jello to you Americans)

As i said in a recent journal post i don't have much time for baking at the moment. I had some eggs needing to be used up so yesterday made a simple vanilla sponge when i had a spare 5 minutes so that i could store and use for other things over the coming days. Today a 5 minute semi-trifle made at 6am this morning as a little treat to go in my eldest daughters lunch box today. Sponge pieces soaked in a little juice of the tinned oranges used, marmalade, tinned custard and a little grated dark chocolate on top.

I do have a recipe for trifle, my favourite kind, strawberry [link]

Banana, walnut, rum, banana chips, chocolate chips and chocolate ganache! This is certainly a big and bold cake with a lot of flavour and attitude. A special cake, for a very special friends birthday.

Lee loves banana cake, he once bought me bananas, eggs, sugar etc round my house so i could bake him a cake while he was here. Since then i mentioned banana and walnut and he got very excited which gave me an idea. I searched many recipes and ideas until i finally found this one on the BBC good food website [link] Of course me being me i just had to adapt the recipe to put my own stamp on it. Instead of vanilla i added rum, chocolate chips to the cake mix and baked it in two tins instead of one so i could fill the center as well as the top of the cake with chocolate ganache. I used two kinds of chocolate ganache, milk and semi sweet then topped it off with banana chips as chopped bananas would have discoloured too quickly plus the chips have lots of flavour, chopped walnuts and chocolate chips.

This is a little sneak peek at what i have planned for valentines day treats.

I am in the mood for using up left overs at the moment. For Christmas i received a tin of Belgium chocolate biscuits. they were alright but a little boring so i decided to make some truffles out of them as i had a tub of cream cheese left over too.

I put a few hand fulls of biscuits in my food processor, about seven different types of biscuit.
Once finely crumbed i added a heaped tablespoon at a time of cream cheese until combined.
Rolled them into balls and coated half with cocoa powder and half with icing sugar (confectioners sugar)
I do not know the exact quantities i used, i have got the point in my baking that i just kind of know how much to use when it comes to truffles and cheese cakes.

TIP: If you make the icing sugar coated kind, do not coat them until you are about to serve them as the moisture from the truffles kind of melts the icing sugar and it does not look so nice once that starts to happen.

These truffles are very naughty! Dark (semi sweet) chocolate truffles that are very rich and creamy and melt in the mouth. Covered in crushed pistachio nuts, i just love the opposites in texture and flavour, it's a fun party in the mouth.

Please forgive the photo quality, for some reason the crisp edges have been lost in the upload to DA :( It's so annoying as it came out perfectly on my facebook page! If anyone has any advice for uploading photos from GIMP would be greatly appreciated.

I also have a recipe for cookie truffles

Today i was very excited to be baking as it was my first time making dairy free cakes, I already bake gluten free but last week decided to try out a dairy free diet too. To be honest I was not sure what to expect but in the end they just tasted pretty much like regular cupcakes which is great and to those unaware of what they are made of would unlikely taste the difference.

I used my basic cake recipe [link] but used ASDA gluten free flour and Pure which is a sunflower based dairy free butter/spread. As a topping I heated up some lemon juice with sugar then poured on the cupcakes while still warm.

That's it, that's all my Christmas practice baking done, no more photos until after Christmas. Sorry for the rush job on this photo, I haven't got the time at the moment to be taking lots of pictures.

Gluten free honey drizzled sponge cake, freshly homemade whipped cream, strawberries, raspberries, banana and apple with mini smartie like chocolates.

Local strawberries and raspberries are coming to an end this season along with the beautiful natural lighting so this is probably the last summer themed dessert i will be making this year.

Naturally i couldn't help but add some chocolate to the mix :) i love honey, cream, chocolate and fruits together.

I got to say this was the lightest and fluffiest gluten free sponge i have made, it helps when you can bake and eat it within two hours to get that wonderful freshness you just can't buy in the shops.

My usual basic sponge cake recipe, just add your favourite fruits or toppings :)
