Lemon & berry yoghurt loaf

lemon berry yoghurt loaf

I have made this delicious recipe quite a few times because it always gets rave reviews. This latest bake was for LL to take to his work for morning tea, and, according to him, it was a great success. He said it was the first cake to be finished and he received several requests for the recipe. Now I don’t know if he’s just embellishing to flatter my ego, but having eaten this cake myself, I’m inclined to say it’s just a great recipe that is both easy and guarantees mouth-watering results every time. Give it a go! Continue reading

I love me some carrot cake.

Carrot cake. Moist, crumbly, cinnamonny goodness with flecks of walnuts and HEAVENLY cream cheese icing. I love me some carrot cake. Especially that cream cheese icing. Come to think of it, I could probably just eat a plate of cream cheese icing, but with carrot cake on the side. Yum.

I whipped up this little baby a couple of weeks ago (bit slow on the blogging – sorry!) for when LL and I had visitors. I think they ate maybe one piece each. LL and I ate the rest. Sure, I could’ve taken the cake into work and my co-workers would have demolished it tut sweet (they love a bit of cream cheese icing themselves), but I took the selfish route and cut the cake up into slices and individually wrapped each slice and kept them in the freezer. Of course, there’s no chance of cake going stale before I get my greedy mitts on it, but keeping it in the freezer prevents the occasional *ahem*often*ahem* binge cake eating.

Baking day: Lemon coconut meringue cupcakes

I love having visitors to the farm. It’s a fair hike out of town (half an hour’s drive), and so when someone asks to stop by, I immediately turn to the fridge to see what sort of sweet treat I can concoct to make the trek worth my visitor’s while.

Today, it was one of my friends from work coming around for a chai and a chat and I took the liberty of whipping up a batch of these lemon meringue cupcakes. They are a tangy but sweet lemon coconut cake with a tart lemon curd filling, topped off with a coconutty meringue tower. They weren’t as much work as the name implies, and I made the cake and curd the night before to make today’s assembly even easier. Give them a go and tell me what you think!

When life gives you lemons, make pound cake

I had a couple of friends visit me today, and anyone willing to venture all the way out to see me at the farm is deserving of some sort of baked good. On the menu today was a tangy, moist and totally delicious lemon pound cake. It’s made with cream cheese and is melt-in-your-mouth amazing, if I do say so myself. Try it and let me know what you think!
