Chocolate Frangipane Cake

Hi guys!

It was time for a new experiment. I wanted to combine 2 of my favorite flavors into one cake: chocolate (what else?) and Frangipane. It worked!

Vanilla Rice Pudding ~ Vanille Rijstpap

Hi guys!

I’ve got a real classic for you today: Vanilla Rice Pudding, or as we call it in Dutch, rijstpap. It is by far my grandpa’s favorite dessert. I came across this creamy recipe from Koken op Hakken and I knew I just had to make it. I bet my grandpa will be stoked when I bring him this yummy homemade Vanilla Rice Pudding!

Easy & delicious Pear Cake

Hi guys!

I’ve always been a fan of Apple Cake. Even the storebought ones my grandma used to present us at parties. I guess I just love the simplicity of the cake and that moist texture, thanks to the apples. Apple cake, apple cake with speculoos, … I’ve made many varieties on this family classic. Because that’s what I believe it is. A family classic. I don’t think I know one family who never made apple cake.

Sometimes, the classics need to be changed. Just a little. So instead of apples, I used pears. The recipe is the same, only the fruit changes. Super easy and still super delicious πŸ™‚

Chocolate Mickey Cake

Hi guys!

We had a birthday celebration last Sunday for my aunt, grandpa, nephew and myself. I wanted to make a special cake for my aunt because she loves mice and especially Mickey Mouse…And she loves chocolate (who doesn’t). A few days before, I came across a Mickey Mouse cake. Yes! This is going to be the cake πŸ˜€

I decided to go for a yummy Devil’s Food Cake, topped with ganache. It’s such a rich chocolate cake, but not too heavy. I didn’t dare to write immediately on the cake so IΒ wrote on some parshment paper to harden in the freezer until the letters were dry enough to put on the cake.

Tadaaaaaa:

Chocolate Cheesecake

Hi guys!

I’m sharing a fantastic dessert from The Boyfriend today. On Wednesday, I tried to make a Chocolate Mousse Cheesecake. I failed. Massively. The Boyfriend felt so bad for me, he made this divine Chocolate Cheesecake! That’s what I call true love. Especially because The Boyfriend has nothing with desserts. He did it just for me ❀

Breakfast in Rotterdam at Baker & Moore

Hi guys!

Last weekend was great! On Sunday we (The Boyfriend, little doggy Max and I) went to Rotterdam for a food event by Mr.Experience. The event started at 2 p.m. so we decided to leave home early and enjoy Rotterdam a bit.

On Sunday, especially when on a little city trip, one should have a splendid breakfast. I opened Google, typed ‘breakfast in Rotterdam’ and went for the first name that came up: Baker & Moore. It sounded great, got great review and wasn’t far away. Off we went!

3rd Blogiversary + Jungle fun!

Hi guys!

Once upon a time…3 years ago in a little kitchen… There was a girl who loved baking so much she started a blog about it. That blog was called “Sarah’s Little Kitchen”.

Now, exactly 3 years later, that girl still loves baking. And the kitchen is still little.

Hazelnut Brownies

Hi guys!

Last week, I made some Brownies for my colleagues at work. One of them asked me if I had ever made them with nuts since he likes it so much. Negative. I have never ever made anything with nuts before. Except for almond flour but that doesn’t count. So, nuts huh? Challenge accepted! I must say they looked pretty damn good when I took them out of the oven.

First time ever using nuts, I think I may have exaggerated a little on the nutty intentions… But it was supposed to be nutty, so I think I definitely nailed that one xD

Made with love: Moelleux for Valentine’s Day

Hi guys!

Happy Valentine’s Day! ❀

“What should I make for Valentine’s Day?” I think that question went through my mind multiple times a day for the past weeks. Red things? Pink things? Red Velvet things? Heart shaped things? I had no idea! Inspiration enough but just no clue. I wanted something easy but delicious. Romantic, but not too much. And – of course – a crowd pleaser. PING! What do I love most? What do women love most? (Besides puppies and men with sixpacks…) Chocolate! Suddenly the idea for my Valentine’s Day recipe was born: Moelleux (aka Lava Cake)
