Eggless Basbousa/Semolina Cake Recipe @

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 (Homemade Bread Pudding) Recipe @ treatntrick.blogspot.comB

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 @

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 @

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.

Easy Brownies From Scratch Recipe @

These Easy Brownies From Scratch are made with cocoa powder, plain flour, butter and sugar. They come  together in minutes.

I found most brownies recipes  are made of almost the same ingredients  but  vary on the  quantity of butter, sugar, flour and cocoa powder used.  Previously baked  Banana Brownies Eggless  and Yeasted Chocolate Brownies Eggless  that uses more flour  and  turned out almost like a cake.

Recently  discovered that there is a brownies that use loads of  chocolate with least amount  of flour.  Am yet to try this.

Easy Brownies From Scratch does not require mixing the batter until fluffy, just combine until well blended and don't even use baking powder or baking soda.

These brownies come together in minutes.  For best result, do not over bake,  check them after 30 minutes.  You may want to add toasted nuts like walnut, pecan or cashew before baking.  Easy Brownies From Scratch  were chewy, chocolatey and simply wonderful.  By the next day, a pan of brownies was gone.

Classic Bread Pudding Recipe @

This Classic Bread Pudding is an easy dessert using a stale bread soaked in a milky egg mixture.

I used to make it using my white sandwich  bread, crust removed then cubed, but today I made this Classic Bread Pudding with multi grain bread, cut the slice into half length wise.

Also baked this pudding in my  9 x 11 in  baking pan instead of the heavy glass dish.  It does not matter what utensil you choose, it still turns out great.  The advantage of using a glass dish is that it can go from oven straight to dining table.

It can be customize to your liking by adding cinnamon, nutmeg or lemon zest.  If you are a chocolate lover, add a cup of  chopped bittersweet chocolate or add in fruits like banana (2),  blueberry, strawberry, raspberry (2 cup) or dried fruit (1 cup) just before baking.

This simple  Classic Bread Pudding came out beautiful and and  taste exactly the same  I enjoyed as a child.

Flat Top Banana Bread Recipe @

Flat Top Banana Bread Recipe @

This classic Flat Top Banana Bread is always a favorite, whenever I have over ripen banana,  this is the bread I used to make.

It uses one and half cup of mashed banana, yogurt and butter to produce a moist and divine banana bread.  It took 50 minutes to bake it at 180 C.

Easily turned this basic banana bread to the next level by adding chocolate chips, peanut butter, coconut or blueberry.  So, if you're craving for a sweet, warm and super easy treat,  this Flat Top Banana Bread is the best option.

As this bread was extremely moist, place the bread  in an airtight plastic container then store in a refrigerator after 24 hours

Red Velvet Banana Cake Recipe @

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 Recipe @

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 Recipe @

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.

Best Ever Eggless Cocoa Brownies Recipe @

This Best Ever  Eggless Cocoa Brownies is a quick and easy recipe to satisfy those sweet craving. Made with cocoa powder, vegetable oil, condensed milk and water.

Purposely reduce the sugar since am adding half a cup of condensed milk but you could add more if you want.  Have added the coconut oil but other vegetable oil works too.  For a richer taste, opt for melted butter instead of oil.

The process is about as easy as you can get.  Combine dry ingredients with  oil, condensed milk, water and mix.  Add  in chocolate chips, stir and spoon batter into muffin pan.

Besides baking in muffin pan, a square pan of 8 x 8 in is a great alternative but adjust the baking time accordingly.

These Best Ever Eggless Cocoa Brownies were  fantastic!  They are so good, am planning to bake another batch tomorrow.

Moist Marble Banana Cake Recipe @

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 @

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.

Kuih Dadar Labu/Pumpkin Crepes Recipe @

Most South East Asian  kuih or bite sized dessert uses natural products such as coconut, banana or tapioca.  One of my favorite kuih is Kuih Dadar or kuih ketayap, a rolled crepe stuffed with sweeten grated coconut.   It was made by 2 parts, outer cover and the filling normally made  with coconut.

Kuih Dadar  uses natural food coloring by blending  pandan leaves with liquid then strain.  Pandan juice is added back to the batter.  These leaves not only gives a beautiful color but also a nice fragrance.   You can simply omit pandan leaves if it is not available at your area, just add green food coloring or a tablespoon of pandan paste.

Made a substitution for the filling using mashed pumpkin instead of grated coconut.  Also prepared it using milk and not coconut milk.   This filling will keep well in a refrigerator if you cook it longer. Adjust the sweetness to your liking  by adding more sugar.

Best Cocoa Brownies Recipe @

My family loves brownies and have make several batches of  Eggless Coffee Brownies  and   Banana Brownies Eggless before. Both of them are cake like type.

Some brownies used dark chocolate  but I have no chocolate at the moment.   In this case, I  opt for cocoa powder instead.   The recipe below is super easy to put together and with the option to add nuts or chocolate chip for more intensified chocolate flavor.   Also added only 3/4 cup of sugar.

Best Cocoa Brownies only need a whisk to mix melted butter together with sugar and cocoa powder. Then mix in the rest of the ingredients and stir until smooth.   It is now ready to be baked.

Baked in my 8 in round pan instead of 8 x 8 and it took 20 minutes flat to bake but this depends on individual  oven.  When completely cool, slice into 12 or 16 squares if you're using 8 x 8 in pan.

This Best Cocoa Brownies is  a soft and chewy on the inside and chocolatey.  It is also the easiest one bowl brownies you could ever hope for.   As requested,  I have planned to bake this again tomorrow.

Blueberry Milk Cake Recipe @

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 @

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 @

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.
