MANGO CAKE RECIPE


A homemade Mango Cake made with fresh mango.  Always love to add a fruit in my dessert.   I left with no more mango so unable to use this fruit for topping or as a prop.

Used fresh pureed mango but you can make use of canned one too. Make sure you drain the fruit well.

Adjust the sugar according to the sweetness of the mango, may be you need not use all the amount stated in the recipe.  For richer cake, opt for melted butter instead of vegetable oil.

Mango Cake turned out great without cracks on top.  You can definitely play around with your favorite frosting to dress up this cake.

HEALTHY BANANA BUNDT BREAD RECIPE

Healthy Banana Bundt Bread Recipe @ treatntrick.blogspot.com

Healthy Banana Bundt Bread  was made without oil or butter but still so moist and delicious.

If you're a regular visitor of my blog, you would notice, I have baked more than a dozen of banana cake/bread with slight variation on the ingredients used.

Stumbled upon this recipe while browsing Facebook.  Am eager to try it out since it uses yogurt and eggs to moisten the batter.

The original recipe uses 1/3 cup of honey but I have replaced it with half a cup of brown sugar.  This amount is just perfect for us. You can add more if you like it sweeter.

Am so glad, Healthy Banana Bundt Bread turned out incredibly fluffy and moist,   Less then 24 hours, it was almost gone, my family really love this bread.

PERFECT BANANA CAKE RECIPE

Perfect Banana Cake Recipe @ treatntrick.blogspot.com

The best banana cake that was moist and came out beautiful.

As you might notice, I have baked banana cake regularly be it plain,  contains fruit or chocolate ones and now adding another fantastic recipe called Perfect Banana Cake. 

Full banana flavor, so moist, just the right amount of sweetness and the easiest to make.

Perfect Banana Cake was baked using varied temperature.  At first, I baked at 180 C for 15 minutes on the lowest rack then transfer the pan to sit on middle rack for 45 minutes or until a skewer inserted comes out clean.

Baked the cake on lowest rack since I love the bottom to be well browned.

JAPANESE COTTON CHEESECAKE RECIPE

Japanese Cotton Cheesecake Recipe @ treatntrick.blogspot.com

A soft and wonderful cake loaded with cream cheese and eggs  cooked in a hot water bath method.

After my successful attempt in making Butter Cheesecake, am eager to try this Japanese Cotton Cheesecake recipe.  It uses egg separation method and bakes in hot water bath.  This procedure ensures a gentle and uniform heat around the food.

It is much easier to separate an egg if it is chilled as it was slightly thicker than a regular egg.

My project to make Japanese Cotton Cheesecake went smoothly but I have one small problem though. My cake top did not turn golden brown  as done by others but  the edges do despite shifting the pan on the top rack.   Don't understand why this happens?

This cake baked up wonderful, no air bubbles in the cake, has a good taste and quality.  Everyone asked  for a second slice.

BUTTER CHEESECAKE RECIPE

Butter Cheesecake Recipe @ treatntrick.blogspot.com

This is our new favorite,   it  combines  cream cheese and butter that produces a wonderful cake.

Have bookmarked a few of cheese cake recipes to try out.  Am trying  this Butter Cheese Cake  that I have discovered while browsing on Facebook.

Butter Cheesecake  recipe was simple to make using egg separation method.  .

If you are serving a small family of 2-3, I would suggest you half the recipe unless you intend to  share with others.

The cold butter and cream cheese can be cubed to fasten the creaming process.

This Butter Cheesecake is our  favorite cheesecake recipe  and it is one of  the easiest to make!

TRICOLOR MARBLE CAKE RECIPE

Tricolor Marble Cake Recipe @ treatntrick.blogspot.com

Another butter cake project that has 3 color and swirled to get a marbling effect.

We're just entering a new year and I like to dedicate this post to my wonderful readers.  Wishing you a Healthy and Prosperous New Year!

You might notice that I deeply in love with  anything matble, be it dessert or bread.  For example the following recipes that I have tried:

Moist Marble Banana Cake

Chocolate Marble Bread

Marble Cake

This Tricolor Marble Cake made of 3 colors, green, red and plain. Not only colors but you can add any flavoring like strawberry, coffee, blueberry, pandan or lemon that suits the color of your choice. I don't have those so added only food coloring.

My Tricolor Marble Cake turned faint in color since I have used only 2 drops of the food coloring.  I think you should add little bit more to get vivid color.  Nevertheless it turned out rich, moist and delightful.

ZEBRA OIL CAKE RECIPE

Zebra Oil Cake Recipe @ treatntrick.blogspot.com

An easy but impressive  cake using oil that has two contrasting colors.

Zebra Oil Cake is similar with butter cake but used oil instead with two colored stripes.

I used my electric hand mixer to beat sugar and eggs on high speed until it turns fluffy, thick  and pale in color for about 5 minutes.

The batter is divided into 2, one portion leaves as it is while the other mix in the cocoa powder. Now is the fun part, layering the batter by alternating between the plain and chocolate one until  both batter have been used up.  You need not spread the batter, it would spread by itself.

Do you know the difference between zebra and marble cake.? Zebra Oil Cake has almost even stripes where else marble cake has uneven pattern by swirling around the batter to create a marble effect.

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.

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.

EASY CHOCOLATE CAKE RECIPE

Easy Chocolate Cake Recipe @ treatntrick.blogspot.com

This is our new favorite chocolate cake that requires cooking of butter, cocoa, sugar, water and baking soda on stove top before adding the rest of the ingredients.

When I stumbled upon this Easy Chocolate Cake Recipe. am   tempted to try it out after reading its positive comments.

Have made slight changes by reducing the sugar from 1.5 cups to only 1 cup and used plain flour instead of self raising flour.

We are excited to bake this wonderful Easy Chocolate Cake Recipe that came out deliciously perfect and moist even without any frosting.  This is a  good cake to turn into a birthday or any other special moments with your favorite frosting.

EGGLESS BASBOUSA / SEMOLINA CAKE RECIPE

Eggless Basbousa/Semolina Cake Recipe @ treatntrick.blogspot.com

A famous dessert originating from Middle East, made of semolina and drenched in sugar syrup.

Am looking for Eggless Basbousa / Eggless Semolina Cake Recipe over the net.  There are various recipes for making it, some used coconut or  ground almond and richer one with heavy dose of butter and eggs.

After checking so many recipes,  decided to give this recipe a try. This Eggless Basbousa / Semolina Cake recipe uses no eggs and least sugar for the  syrup.

Used a whisk to cream the butter and sugar together.  Need not beat until fluffy, just until well combined.

This Eggless Basbousa / Eggless Semolina Cake does not have a cake like batter but rather a thick mass of dough.

Am running short of whole almonds so I used almond flakes for topping.

We enjoyed a slightly chewy texture imparted by semolina, sticky and moistness by the syrup.  It is much better the day after since the lemon flavored syrup  will be completely absorbed.  We plan to make this wonderful Eggless Basbousa/Eggless Semolina Cake again for our family gathering.

MOIST CHOCOLATE CAKE RECIPE

Moist Chocolate Cake Recipe @ treatntrick.blogspot.com

A moist and delicious chocolate cake for any occasion.

I have tried various chocolate cake recipes.  Most of them are made using only a whisk.

This Moist Chocolate Cake is differs from what I have baked so far.  It requires to heat milk, sugar, cocoa and oil until the sugar is dissolved then cool to room temperature before adding the rest of the ingredients.

It rose beautifully, I baked it for 70 minutes in 8 in cake pan but you must check for doneness after 60 minutes as my oven would have different setting from yours.

Add your own twist by changing the frosting flavor but it is just perfect for me to eat it without glaze or frosting.

This Moist Chocolate Cake was  quick and easy  with delightful result.  Definitely a recipe to keep!

STRAWBERRY CAKE NO JELLO RECIPE

Strawberry Cake No Jello Recipe @ treatntrick.blogspot.com

A homemade Strawberry Cake  No Jello and box mixes that was moist and a cinch to make.

Have been looking for strawberry cake  without gelatin all over the net but  can't find what I like. In the end, I used my regular cake recipe with slight adjustments.

This Strawberry Cake  No Jello can be baked in 8 in cake pan or bundt instead of loaf pan that I used.

Used fresh strawberry and did not puree  them  instead chopped them fine.

Accidentally, added a bit more of the liquid food coloring, I suggest you add drop by drop to obtain lighter color tone.

Baked this Strawberry Cake No Jello for first 30 minutes @ 180 C then reduce the temperature to 160 C and continue baking for another 10-15 minutes or until a skewer inserted comes out clean.  Apply frosting of your choice if desired.

RED VELVET BANANA CAKE RECIPE

Red Velvet Banana Cake Recipe @ treatntrick.blogspot.com

My Red Velvet Banana Cake was slightly different from the regular red velvet as I have added mashed banana  in the batter.    Am attracted to its color and curious to know how the combination  of chocolate  and red color turns out plus a little twist by adding banana.

This Red Velvet Banana Cake  uses yogurt and banana to moisten the cake  In case you're not keen to use banana, you may add 2 more eggs plus 1/4 cup of yogurt.

Sadly my cake did not turn out deep red in color but overall, it was amazing cake.  You're hooked after the first bite!   Used liquid red food coloring for this recipe.

The ideal pan to use is a 12 cup bundt pan as I don't have it,   bake them into  a small bundt and another 8 in cake pan.

Red Velvet Banana Cake turned out wonderful.   Extremely pleased with moist and tenderness of the cake.   Will bake again as my family enjoyed it.   Even my boy can't wait to devour it  after I removed it from the oven.

AMAZING YOGURT CAKE

Amazing Yogurt Cake Recipe @ treatntrick.blogspot.com

Thinking hard what to bake this week,  am torn between baking  a cake or bread.  At the moment, I only have few cups of natural yogurt in the refrigerator.

Decided to bake this Amazing Yogurt Cake that was ultra moist and a snap to make.   The yogurt not only cut down the fat used but also moisten the cake.

In case  you don't have a  plain yogurt,  a flavored ones work just fine.   This Amazing Yogurt Cake can be customized in many ways like adding a cup of diced blueberries, raspberries, strawberries or other fruits as well.

I use canola oil for this recipe.  You can use almond oil, peanut oil or any vegetable oil or even replace oil with melted butter.

Why it is called "amazing"?  Simply because it uses staple ingredients from the kitchen and  made without a mixer but using a whisk yet it  produces a moist, tender and scrumptious treat!

BUTTERY LIGHT FRUIT CAKE

Buttery Light Fruit Cake Recipe @ treatntrick.blogspot.com

No festive season is complete without fruit cake.  There were so many different ways to make one. But I always prefer the one with less fruit like this  Light Fruit Cake.  This Buttery Light Fruit Cake will cut down the time you soak the dry fruit.  Soak the fruit in orange juice, microwave for a minute to plump them then leave to cool.

If you mix your own dry fruits, you need to add  candied red and green cherries to the batter.   It would look prettier with those.  I used store bought mixed fruit that include both cherries.

The sweetness was just right,  adding more sugar isn't necessary.   We get natural sugar from the dry fruits.

This Buttery Light Fruit Cake is so simple to make yet tastes awesome.  I used this recipe successfully to get a quick festive treat. If desired, decorate with additional candied fruits and nuts.

MOIST MARBLE BANANA CAKE

Moist Marble Banana Cake Recipe @ treatntrick.blogspot.com








Am obsessed with marble cake  or bread.  So far I have baked  Eggless Marble Banana CakeBanana Chocolate Bread Marbled and   Marble Cake  but that does't stop me from trying another recipe.

Most  of the recipes  call for melted butter but this  Moist Marble Banana Cake uses  vegetable oil.  It has a right amount of sweetness and stay moist even after the next day.

After experiencing and baking with banana.  I must admit that using a right banana is the key to perfect cake.  The banana should be ripe but  firm and not too soft because soft banana contains more water, it tends to make your cake slightly wet.

Another point was about cocoa powder.   Adding more cocoa means you have to add more sugar to sweeten the cake.   Just add a tablespoon or two  of cocoa in the batter is more than sufficient, you still get beautiful marble effect.  So glad Moist Marble Banana Cake turned out incredible!

PERFECT CHOCOLATE CAKE RECIPE

Perfect Chocolate Cake Recipe @ treatntricl.blogspot.com


I have tried various recipes of  chocolate cake and still looking for a perfect ones.  Stumbled upon this recipe on Facebook and decided to try it out one day.

At first glance, it looks complicated with a lot of ingredients, but actually another reason I love this recipe that it  uses a whisk to mix, combine both  wet and dry ingredients then you're ready to bake it.

This Perfect Chocolate Cake can be steamed but I chose to bake it.  Made slight changes by reducing the cocoa powder to 3/4 cup and increase the amount of flour to 1 1/2 cups.  Also reduce baking soda to 1/2 teaspoon.

Despite the changes I  made,  this Perfect Chocolate Cake turns out wonderful!  Perfect chocolate flavor with right amount of sweetness.When completely cool,  glaze as desired.  I don't do this since my family prefer plain good cake without any frosting.
