Baked Churros

one day i got up and decided i want to bake something quick and easy. now usually when i bake i am prepared (take the butter out in the night so it is soft) so i was looking for something that used melted butter. and then i was like OH YES I WANNA TRY CHURROS. so i made them and it’s pretty much choux pastry. also they didn’t last long because they were so good. =D

THEY WERE GONE IN LIKE AN HOUR

Cinnamon Rolls

so i made these for my mum’s birthday. and it literally took all day because of the proving etc…

this was my first time making anything with yeast. but it was fun.

and the end result OH MY GOSH THESE ARE AMAZINGLY DELICIOUS. i mean they’re not so sweet which why they’re better than cinnabon and they got eaten quickly! this recipe made about 2 cake tins full of buns. so you roll it and then cut it and place it in a cake tin and then when it’s done you gut the bun etc. and the icing…oohhh… so good!!!

they're better than cinnabon...

they’re better than cinnabon…

Chocolate Eclairs

i bribed my brother by telling him if he watched Catching Fire with me i’ll make him eclairs. =P

not as easy as the profiteroles but still yum

Banana Boston CreamΒ  Cake

i didn’t know what to make for my dad’s birthday. he wanted like a pudding cake or something idk but i was like really? so i showed him one of the Humingbird Bakery recipe books and he saw this and said CUSTARD YES THIS IS IT. i made a face coz it didn’t really sound that nice but hey ho it’s not my birthday. so i made this and it’s actually quite nice. the banana flavour isn’t too strong and the custard isn’t that much so it’s okay.

actually quite nice

actually quite nice

Gooey Chocolate Oreo Crunch Butter Cake

i asked my friend what she wanted me to bake for her birthday and she said something with oreos. so i found this recipe a while ago and was waiting for an occasion to make it since i knew it’d be big. and this was it. it is glorious. super chocolatey and rich. and just wonderful. it’s also fun to bake!!! it’s actually like three layers. there is a base layer which is the crust and then the gooey layer and then oreos and then the top which is melted chocolate and peanut butter. so maybe 4 layers? but it is SO YUMMY!!! it needs to set though so rather bake it a day early.

THIS WAS SO MUCH FUN!!!

THIS WAS SO MUCH FUN!!!

and then…

this is perfect

this is perfect

anyways that’s it for now. i’ll probably be baking some cookies throughout revision and exam season to keep be going.

and once that’s over i’ll resume my my baking adventures….i recently bought a pie pan so i hope to make pies and try some bun/bread recipes and of course more cake recipes!!!

i also discovered these 2 amazing blogs:

Passion for Baking

Cooking Classy

so till the next time

and HAPPY BAKING!!! don’t be scared…just make sure if MEASURE everything accurately and follow the recipe and you should be fine. also if you don’t live in the US…when following US recipes make sure you CONVERT temperatures and certain ingredients (flour, sugar, etc) as there are different kinds!

baking is fun and SHOULD be fun. not stressful. so don’t make it harder for yourself.

have fun!
