BLUEBERRY MILK CAKE RECIPE

Blueberry Milk Cake Recipe @ treatntrick.blogspot.com

My husband recently purchased some fresh blueberries along with his favorites fruits during his visit to supermarket.  Frankly am not familiar using this fruit in baking,  it tastes slightly tart but that was fine with me.

Being a adventurous person, I decided to use this blueberries in baking this time. This  Blueberry Milk  Cake is quick and the simplest to make.  I believe you need to try  and learn new  things regardless whether you would succeed or not.

Did little tweaking by reducing the sugar a bit.   Didn't bother with icing,  as I didn't think it needed it.

You need to toss the fresh blueberries with flour so it doesn't sink at the bottom of the cake.  I was short on lemon zest so did not add it but still this Blueberry Milk Cake comes out really good. I wanted to devour the whole cake even my hubby who hate sweets could't resist to have a bite.

It was very tasty, moist  and dangerously moreish!

NO SUGAR BANANA CAKE RECIPE

No Sugar Banana Cake Recipe @ treatntrick.blogspot.com


Am curious to know how a cake without refined sugar taste like.  Some cake with sugar free recipe may contain alternative sweeteners, maple syrup or agave.  But this No Sugar Banana Cake is completely free from those.   Don't believe? .

So this week I tried my hand at sugar free cake for the very first time. Baked this in a small quantity since not sure whether my family would like the cake..

No Sugar Banana Cake uses only 7 ingredients like banana, oil and egg.  You can even omit the egg if you have allergies by replacing it with yogurt.

Surprisingly, this turned out moist and tasted  really  nice. . All that due to ripened banana that makes the cake super moist and pleasantly sweet to bite into.

Why not give it a go yourselves with this recipe that is from from refined sugar? Just because it is healthier than the average butter cake doesn't mean they are less tasty. If you like sugar free dessert, you can try this How to bake NO SUGAR Date Oatmeal Bars  or  Date Tart  as well.

RITZ BANANA CAKE RECIPE

Ritz Banana Cake Recipe @ treatntrick.blogspot.com


Recently, a supplier of milk products launched a special offer drive for their brand of fresh milk  that provides a customer with a pack of Ritz cracker for purchase of their product.  Because of this exercise, I had few packs of Ritz lying on my cupboard.

To make use of those. I incorporated the crackers for making Ritz Banana Cake that was a favorite for everyone at home.

First crushed the crackers with rolling pin (this is what I use)  or use your food processor to do the job.  These  crushed cookies replace the flour for making the cake.

Intentionally reduce the sugar to half a cup instead of 1 cup because those bananas are enough to sweeten this Ritz Banana Cake.

This is perfect for someone who wants to  venture into baking with a little twist from a classic recipe that you would never dreamed to have put together.

Easiest recipe and most delicious cake!  So moist and everyone who has tried it, loves it. My aunt was amazed how easy and quick the recipe is.

EASY ROCKY ROAD CAKE

Easy Rocky Road Cake Recipe @ treatntrick.blogspot.com

Am always attracted to rocky road desserts for their luscious topping of crunchy nuts, chunks of biscuits  and fluffy marshmallow coated in melted chocolate. ,   The topping varies from country to country,  you could learn more about this through Google.

This week, I try to include "rocky road" elements in my cake by adding chocolate chips, almonds and crushed biscuit in the batter.

What I love about this recipe was super easy to make, no creaming of butter or beating of egg required.  You need only one bowl to incorporate all the ingredients except the almond slices.  It uses as a garnish.  Most importantly, it was lighter when compared with other rocky road cake.  Easy Rocky Road Cake uses oil instead of butter  Added peanut oil but other vegetable oil works too.

Easy Rocky Road Cake  is great fun to make with all the family and the best part is you can  personalize your cake by mix and matching the ingredients with your favorite sweets and biscuits.

Made as a surprise for our guest and  it was a total hit!  Everyone loved it so much and going to try this again with different variations soon.

GINGER COFFEE CAKE

Ginger Coffee Cake Recipe @ treatntrick.blogspot.com


Nowadays a cake is a must for any occasion, such as for birthday, wedding or parties. This Ginger Coffee Cake is good for small gathering or just to satisfy your sweet tooth.   It is a typical cake recipe whereby you beat sugar and butter until light and thick.   In this recipe I have used only half a cup of butter,  additional coffee and  yogurt to moisten the batter.  In case you don't like coffee, you can add very strong tea instead.

We love the kick of heat the ginger brings to this Ginger Coffee Cake.  If ground ginger is not available  you can substitute it  with  3/4 in of  grated fresh ginger that would work too. In future, would  double up the ground ginger since the  ginger flavor was still quite subtle.   Love a fierce gingerly flavor in my cake so am not adding any spice, anything else is a mere distraction

Drizzle over your favorite icing on top of the cake  but I like to keep it simple.  Embrace the ginger. It can only make you feel better. And what are your other favorite ginger recipes at this time of the year?

VANILLA CAKE IN A JAR I HOW TO

Vanilla Cake In a Jar Recipe @ http://treatntrick.blogspot.com



A simple and easy way to make individual  servings of dessert that are perfectly portable  is baking in a jar,  These are super cute  and a great  way to put up my canning jars for a good use. Baking in jars give you an opportunity to present packaged baked  goods to your friends and family.   Wrap  pretty ribbon around the sealed jars complete with a special card.

You can use any basic cake recipe but I  prefer  this simple and quick ones.  There are  so many recipes that can be baked in jars.  Vanilla Cake In a Jar is baked with melted butter instead of oil and added just half a cup of sugar, this suits my taste.

This  Vanilla Cake In a Jar recipe  filled  3 jars of  18-oz, this  is  the size I had at the moment.   By using a 12-oz jar, you could get more than 3 definitely.  It is important to use wide mouth canning jars for filling the batter with ease and would slide out easily.  Make sure the use a proper jars that can withstand the heat and safe for baking..

EGGLESS LIGHT BANANA CAKE

Eggless light Banana Cake Recipe @ http://treatntrick.blogspot.com

This Eggless Light Banana cake is incredibly easy to make, egg free and very flexible. If you're using self rising flour, you could avoid the baking soda and baking powder in the recipe.

Added  only half a cup of sugar since bananas are already sweet but add 3/4 cup if you want it sweeter. Also used canola oil and water to moisten the cake.  For richer taste substitute water with milk or  if you are a coffee lover, feel free to include coffee for making this Eggless Light Banana Cake. 

If you don't have time to bake this when your banana are fully ripened, stuff those bananas in a plastic bag and freeze them until  ready to make it (thaw them first before using).

So pleased with the outcome, the cake turns out gorgeous, extremely moist and no cracks on top. You won't be able to  tell this cake is  egg free and low in fat.  This can be baked in any size pan or muffin tins, just adjust the baking time.

HONEYCOMB CAKE / KEK SARANG SEMUT

Honeycomb Cake  Recipe @ http://treatntrick.blogspot.com


Have been eyeing this cake for quite sometime and today I have a chance to try out Honeycomb Cake Kek Sarang Semut from my own kitchen. This cake got its name because it had a hole resembling that bee hive.

The method involves 2 parts.  First you need to caramelize the sugar until it turned  golden , honey like color. Do not attempt to cook beyond this otherwise your syrup would turn bitter.  Once you get this color, even sugar  did not dissolve at this point, you can add the water gradually and bring to boil until you get smooth syrup.   Be careful when adding hot water because this syrup would splutter.  At this point, you can add the butter.   Remove from heat and cool completely.

Second is combining  the rest of the ingredients to form a cake batter together with sugar syrup.  Let this sit for 2-3  hours before baking.  Next time I want to try other method that uses only  the  bottom heat.

Preheat the oven before baking and put the pan on the lowest rack , bake for 15 minutes then  place pan at middle rack and continue baking until it is done.

After the cake has cooled, invert the cake and trim the surface  as thin as possible.  Now you could see the hole resembling that honeycomb.

Am pleased the cake turned out soft, moist and insanely delicious.. . .

CARROT CAKE

Cake recipe @ treatntrick.blogspot.com


A moist cake filled with grated carrot was incredibly delicious and the best part it was super easy to make.

Most probably everyone could able to bake this Carrot Cake since it does not use any special gadget. If you have an oven, you're good to go.

I used  my box grater for the carrot, unfortunately this tiny bits of carrot were not visible in the cake,   wish they have a larger setting  for  the grater.  Make sure you squeezed out the water before adding it to the cake batter.

This cake baked beautifully at 180 C for 45 minutes in my oven but your oven might differ  so check the  cake after 40 minutes.

If your prefer to ice your cake, you can do so after the cake has cooled  but  we love ours without it.

LIGHT FRUIT CAKE

Cake recipes @ treatntrick.blogspot.com


Fruit Cake made their appearance during festive celebrations such as Christmas, Hari Raya  and even Chinese New Year.  There are few types of fruit cake either steamed or baked and the dry fruit used varies in quantity, some soaked in brandy/orange juice or without soaking -  the fruit is coated with flour before adding to the  butter mixture.

I always love  Fruit Cake that uses less dry fruit in the recipe.  This Light Fruit Cake require you to soak the dry fruit in  orange juice or brandy overnight.   Next day you can proceed to bake the cake.

It took more than an hour to bake mine.   In case the top  of this Light Fruit Cake  becoming too brown, cover with aluminium foil  crimped around the edges of your baking pan.

On the occasion of this lovely festival of Eid, wishing you Eid Mubarak, may the blessings of Allah be with you always!

10 MINUTE MW CHOCOLATE CAKE

10 Min MW chocolate Cake Recipe @ treatntrick.blogspot.com

Microwave recipe  @ treatntrick.blogspot.com

This 10 Minute Microwave Chocolate Cake is  the ultimate choice  to  satisfy your sweet cravings. quickly.  Made with all the ingredients you might already have in your pantry without an oven.

Some of you might think that microwave cake yields a dry and weird taste but this is not the case for this 10 Minute Microwave Chocolate Cake. It was soft  and insanely delicious.

Make sure you grease your microwave save bowl  generously and line with baking paper especially if you're using glass ones.  Your microwave safe dish should be deep enough to let the cake rise,  fill up only  1/2  of the cake batter into greased bowl..  Mine stick to the bottom of my Arcoflam bowl but I manage to remove it.

Baked the cake using High Power (1000 W) for 5 minutes then switch to Medium for another 1 minutes.  Do check out your wattage power, if you have a lower wattage you need a longer bake time. Always cook it for the shortest time first, you can add another minute once you check it but you can't take away time when you've overcooked something.

OREO BUTTER CAKE

Cake  recipe @ treatntrick.blogspot.com

I always love simple butter cake without  any frosting.  But will experiment with different flavors or add ins for a little "twist".   So here is my first attempt on making Oreo Butter Cake

Actually you can use any of your favorite butter cake  recipe.  Make it different by adding quartered oreo in the batter.  If you want, you can also  crush the cookies.   Have seen some bakers sandwiched whole oreo in between of the cake batter.  Either way, they still turned out delicious.

High in fat, butter cake will keep well for several days.  Un-iced,  a well wrapped baked cake will keep well in the freezer for 1-2 months.

BUTTER CAKE W/ CHOCOLATE SPRINKLES

Butter Cake w/Chocolate Sprinkles

This Butter Cake with Chocolate Sprinkles is not an overly sweet cake. Importantly it was super easy to make, This butter cake is for a moist, light cake that's wonderful as it is but can be used as the basic recipe for 3 other good cake - orange, walnut and chocolate cake with slight adjustments.

If you're not a fan of sprinkles, you can leave that out and still it turned out great.  Use a mixer to blend the batter well but  I  used my hand held beater to do the job.

Did you notice that this cake is baked using slow temperature (160 C) and baked at longer time (40-45 minutes),  When you used high heat it tends to crack on top

MARBLE CAKE


Marble Cake Recipe @ treatntrick.blogspot.com


I baked this Marble Cake made from simple butter cake with a little twist.   Turned this into marble cake by adding two striking colors, red and green. The color combination is entirely up to you, use 2 or 4 colors if you want.

Accidentally add too much green color to the cake batter so it turns out darker deep tone luckily that doesn't alter its taste.

Cube the butter right after you have removed from the refrigerator.to speed up the creaming process.

In case you have self raising flour, use it  but omit the baking powder.
