Sundays are for baking is one of my motto’s and today was no exception.
I recently bought a Madeleine baking tin and I just couldn’t wait to try it 😉
What we need (12 madeleines):
- 1 egg
- 1 egg yolk
- 50 g unsalted butter
- 50 g caster sugar
- 30 g self-raising flour
- 1,5 tbsp cornstarch
- Some fine lemon zest
- Madeleine baking tin
- Preheat the oven at 180°C
- Grease the baking tin
- Melt the butter
- Mix together sugar, both eggs and the lemon zest until foamy
- Add flour and cornstarch
- Mix in the melted butter
- Fill the baking tin
- Bake for about 10 minutes or golden brown
- Let them cool down and serve
These little cakes bring back lots of memories. When I was little, I used to eat these are my grandparents. I have to admit these homemade ones of even storebought ones don’t compare to the ones from Lotus.
Have a delicious day ❤
Easter is almost here! Are you guys as excited about it as I am? I don’t really decorate the house but I do love the Easter chocolate 😉 I think I’m going to make my boyfriend a little easter hunt. I think he’ll love it.
When I think about Easter, I think about chocolate, eggs, little chicks and bunnies. I somehow always go for the bunnies when it comes to Easter recipes. Last year, I made a big bunny cake. This year? I’m making one again! But a completely different bunny cake.
Happy Valentine’s Day! Any plans? Are you going to celebrate it with your love, friends or just by yourself? It doesn’t really matter, it’s always a good day to have a Cupcake 😉
I wanted to keep it simple this year. Most of us have to work and don’t have time – or feel like making time – to make something complicated. My solution? Chocolate Vanilla Cupcakes!
Once in a while I get this huge craving for cake. Just a simple cake. Do you have that too? Although I do like myself some storebought cake, you have to admit a homemade one is so much better. And so easy to make! To serve my fickle cravings, I made a Marble Cake.
I bet lots of you are going out tonight in fabulous and terrifying outfits. Others may go door to door with the kids or send the kids to go Trick or Treat-ing. Some of you are going to watch horror movies. If you’re wondering what I’m doing tonight, I think we can rule out the latter. I will be baking tonight, but not for Halloween.
My final Halloween experiment was born last Sunday. Or should I say ‘died’ last Sunday? Don’t know. You tell me 😉
May I present to you: Misses Zombie Unicorn!
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!
You know those days where you want chocolate, but not all chocolate. You also want cake. But not just cake. You basically want chocolate in a different texture. Sunday was that kind of day. But no worries, I’ve got you covered! This Brownie Vanilla Cake is the best of both worlds! It’s got that chocolate flavour and the soft texture of a cake. It’s the perfect combo for those kind of days 😉
Okay, Belgium didn’t play very well last game against Italy. Let’s admit it: it was painful to watch. I know they tried, but they just weren’t good enough. Our Belgian Red Devils need to step up their game and I’m convinced these Belgian Red Devils Cupcakes will help them win tomorrow!
I shared these babies with you before, when Belgium played at the World Championship. I believe they’ll bring our team good luck since they did great then. So now they’ll have to be great tomorrow as well! These cupcakes are perfect to make with the kids. So let’s all bake and cheer for Belgium!
I know, you’re wondering why all of a sudden I post on Wednesday, right? Well, because today is my birthday! I thought it’d be more fun to post it on the actual day 🙂
I didn’t think I was going to go for a theme but it turned out I secretly chose “pretty in pink” for my birthday theme. Oh well, it’s not really a theme but my cupcakes were wearing pink wrappers and my pictures do involve pink tulips…
Pink actually is the perfect colour for my new age. At least, that’s what I think 🙂
How old it is I am now? 22! 😀 Admit it, 22 is the perfect age for a touch of pink 🙂
AAAAND Sarah’s Little Kitchen turned 2 last month! Can you believe it? That calls for a party 🙂
What a mouth full, isn’t it? :p
The full title actually is: Vanilla Christmas Tree Cupcakes with fluffy Cinnamon Cream Cheese Frosting.
Try saying that five times in a row!
I know Christmas is already behind us, sadly. But I still wanted to share my Christmas Trees with you!
This frosting is the fluffiest, most delicious and subtle frosting I’ve ever had or made!
It’s got this subtle taste of cinnamon in it which makes it perfect for all ages! And even for people who aren’t such Cinnamon fans 😉
