IRISH BARMBRACK RECIPE

Irish Barmbrack Recipe @ treatntrick.blogspot.com

A yeast free Irish tea bread (barmbrack), studded with dried fruit that was soaked in tea overnight or at least 4 hours.

A popular Irish  bread normally baked using yeast.  Today I tried a yeast free version. Used dried cranberries, apricot and sultana that have been soaked for 4 hours.

This Irish Barmbrack is uncomplicated to make if you plan properly.  It requires you to soak the dried fruit in black tea overnight in a refrigerator, the rest was just mix  and stir.

You can soak the fruits in any type of tea you like other than black tea.  Also this bread does not require extra brown/white sugar either as it is naturally sweetened by the dried fruits.

Irish Barmbrack is easily adapted to be a vegan recipe if you replace some of the ingredients :

whole milk  ------>   non dairy milk
1 egg           ------>   60 g mashed banana or mashed potato

Barmbrack is also eaten year round as a delicious treat at teatime when it is served with salty butter, a few days old brack  is also lovely toasted.

QUICK CHOCOLATE CHIP ALMOND BARS RECIPE

Quick Chocolate Chip Almond Bars Recipe @ treatntrick.blogspot.com

A quicker way to satisfy your sweet cravings by making this Quick Chocolate Chip Almond Bars,  made with chocolate chip cookies.

I have a few sleeves of chocolate chip cookies gifted by my close friend.  Am well aware that nobody is going to eat them right from the package.

My recipe below is adopted from graham crackers  where I replace them with chocolate chip cookies, reduce the sugar since the chocolate chips are already sweet.

As the cookies are round in shape, it has a small gap in between. Just   fill the empty space with a broken cookies.

Quick Chocolate Chip Almond Bars  are easy, yummy and  have been a total crowd pleaser.  This imitates a favorite candy bar.

PEACH CAKE FROM SCRATCH RECIPE

Peach Cake From Scratch Recipe @ treatntrick.blogspot.com

A soft and lovely cake studded with diced peaches perfect for  breakfast, brunch or teatime treat.

I have a can of peaches halves  sitting in my pantry for some time. My son saw it and ask me to bake a  peach cake.

Have baked peach cake before, this  Eggless Peach Cake  was  egg free so I want to try with eggs this time.

Used canned peaches, well drained and dice.  Even after cutting, still place them tin the colander to completely drain the liquid. Not only that a quarter cup of flour is added to these peaches.

The process of making Peach Cake From Scratch is quite simple.  It starts by beating eggs with sugar until light and fluffy.  Afterwards combine the dry and wet ingredients together.

For a richer taste, you could use melted butter instead of vegetable oil.

Another tips, you must grease your pan extremely well with butter then coat with flour.   This step is important to  release the cake from the pan with ease.

This Peach Cake From Scratch  takes a long time to cook so make sure to test with a skewer that comes out clean  before removing from your oven.

EASY LEMON YOGURT CAKE RECIPE

Easy Lemon Yogurt Cake Recipe @ treatntrick.blogspot.com

Ultra  moist and slight tanginess makes this cake a favorite for everyone.

Incredibly tasty and you just can't  stop at one slice! Easy Lemon Yogurt Cake uses freshly squeezed lemon juice and grated lemon zest.   It is  packed with delicious lemon flavor.

I used a wire whisk to beat  sugar and  eggs until pale and creamy t or use your mixer to do the job.  Always love a simple recipe yet turned out wondeful.

You can ice the cake after it has cooled or pour lemon syrup on top while it is still warm.  Am not a fan of those so we have it as it is.

This Easy Lemon Yogurt Cake is the best lemon cake I have made in ages.  Even a couple of days later.  the last piece still tastes lovely.
