MARBLE BANANA BREAD

Marble Banana Bread



The overripe banana combined with cocoa powder gives you an incredibly moist and subtly sweet loaf.   Get rid your blackened banana by making this Marble Banana Bread, it uses  one and half cups of mashed banana.

Marble Banana  Bread is a delicious twist on regular banana bread with a chocolate swirl.  Not only it was delicious but pretty. In fact I'm so obsessed with the word "marble", you can find my recipe for marble cake and bread below.

The texture is absolutely wonderful and each slice is beautifully and properly swirled.  I thought  there was no way. my bread would look wonderful as the pictures but  every piece really turn out  great!

KAYA PANCAKE MUFFIN

Kaya Pancake Muffin


I had half a botlle of kaya (coconut jam) left after making my Heart Shaped Kaya Rolls  . At first, I thought of  preparing  a pancake stuffed with kaya but changed my mind and chose Kaya Pancake Muffin instead.

Kaya Pancake Muffin is much quicker and importantly less messy and save your time.  Just imagine, frying the pancake,  stuffing then roll them up one by one.

These are versatile, on the go and delicious meals.  There are  ways to fill up these muffin  with sweet or savory stuffing. Pancake don't have to be sweet.  You can also make incredible meals with savory pancake too.   Just omit the sugar if you opt for  savory stuffing like cooked  shredded chicken, turkey, bacon or even mushroom, spinach or garbanzo beans..   Vary your fillings with  blueberry, apple, fruit pie filling,  nutella, chocolate, peanut butter instead of kaya.

Make it lactose free by using soy or coconut milk in place of milk. Go eggless by adding 1/4 cup yogurt or 1/3 cup of apple sauce  instead of an egg.

PEACH CRUMB SLAB PIE

Peach Crumb Slab Pie


Peach Crumb Slab Pie is a fun way to serve pie like a bar.  The crust is rolled  to fit a rimmed jelly roll pan and shaped into a rectangle instead of round.

You can experiment with other fruits that are available throughout the year.  If using fresh fruits add juice of one lemon to avoid browning but now I used canned peaches that have been drained well.

We are not adding much sugar to the filling since the peaches are already sweetened.  Adding sugar to the crust as well but this is entirely up to your preference.

Don't worry if your crust tears while you're rolling it out, just patch it back together. You'll know it's good when you press the dough into ball shape.  If it is overly dry, add one tablespoon of ice water at a time.  At this point, you  can cover and refrigerate it.

HEART SHAPED KAYA ROLLS

Heart Shaped Kaya Rolls

Homemade rolls are easy to make especially if you use bread maker but mine are made by hand from start to finish.  With homemade rolls, you can easily customize the ingredients you are going to add for instance this Heart Shaped Kaya Rolls, you can omit egg or milk by substituting with soy or almond milk.

Really, you  can use any basic sweet bread recipe and varies the filling.  This time,  I used  kaya (coconut jam) as the stuffing.  Be prepared to encounter messiness along the way. In fact my filling is overflowing at the time of rolling. as you can see from my photo below.

Nevertheless they turned out fabulous and  tasted awesome! The are no harder to make and are a great way to dress them up for special  occasion.
