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.

CONGO BARS RECIPE

Congo  Bars Recipe @ treatntrick.blogspot.com

Congo Bars are a delicious  dessert bars that are loaded with nuts and chocolate chips.

I have tweaked this  recipe by replacing some of the flour with whole wheat.  You can use other nuts as well like pecan or macadamia,

Don't have chocolate chips at the moment so substitute it with chocolate rice (sprinkles) instead.   Sadly, manage to add  about half a cup of the sprinkles since that was what I have.  It would look nice if you sprinkle the chocolate chips also on top.

These Congo Bars came out well and easy to handle,  used a spoon to level it out.   I found these bars  are pretty sweet,  would reduce the sugar further, but this is my personal preference..

BAKED EGGLESS CHURROS RECIPE

Baked Eggless Churros Recipe @ treatntrick.blogspot.com

Am reluctant to try out this Baked Eggless Churros recipe for the reason, I don't have star nozzle to pipe the dough. That all change when I saw my friend made it with daisy cookies (biskut semperit) mould.

This really encourage me to start making it.  The downside of using this method, you can only pipe a shorter ones but that was okay for me.

Tried a baked version instead of deep frying.  Whipped up a simple chocolate sauce to go along with Baked Eggless Churros.

I must say, they are perfect pairing, made me forget about my diet. In case you don't have evaporated milk, replace it with fresh cream. Strain the chocolate sauce if you are not sifting the cocoa powder for a smooth sauce without any lumps.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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

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.

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.

Bingka Roti - A baked dessert using bread slices, eggs, milk and plain flour that was firmer and easy to slice.

I have a few slices of stale bread lying on the counter.  To rescue those bread  am making a bread pudding or Bingka Roti.

This Bingka Roti was slightly different from my earlier bread pudding recipe. as it was firmer and easy to slice due to addition of plain flour.

You can choose other add ins such as sweet corn, jack fruit or banana.   Also  instead of milk, opt for coconut milk instead.

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!
