DSC_0057

There’s a good news- I’m moving houses soon. I’m gonna move to different city at the start of September. And I hope that I’ll find a new job quickly, otherwise I’ll be force to travel to my current one half an hour in a train. We will see. Anyway back to a new town. After we found a perfect flat we went for a lunch with bf’s work friends. It was do much fun to sit in a garden, have a nice chat and a drink. Of course I had to mention that my hobby is baking and that I have a blog. So now I’m baking a batch of cupcakes for them. As a first I chose a chocolate muffins with creamy frosting with marshmallows and coconut. I’m also planning to bake a carrot cake ones for those people who are not a fan of coconut 😊

Mississipi mud pie

DSC_2207

Ages ago, when I was working as waitress in one of the pubs we were selling Mississipi Mud Pie. It was the first time I ever saw it and I was amazed. Layers of chocolate and cream and more chocolate as a biscuit base- you just can’t beat it. I remind myself about this cake just a few weeks ago when I was talking with my friends. It turn out that I am so good at describing it that I had to promise to bake it. If it comes to cakes you don’t need to ask me twice. I bought some missing ingrediends and set myself to work. I used one of the Hairy Bikers recipe to start with (in a future I’m planning to fallow Martha Stewart recipe).

Scones

Today was the day- the day to bake scones. why… because I have never, ever baked them, I had some butter in the fridge, I live in England, and last but not least it is a Mary Berry recipe. Anyway I thought that I need lots of butter… oh well I will have to bake some shortbreads soon ;p But back to the scones. Recipe is as usual so simple and takes no time at all.Scones are delicious freshly baked especially when served with whipped cream and strawberries. They will be also nice to eat just with a butter. I was also thinking to maybe next time go a bit crazy with flavour… a bit more creamy, add some lemon zest or lavender or some spices? I would definitely try something new.

Yoghurt cake with strawberries and jelly

DSC_1093

Summer is coming time for cold puddings… and fresh fruits 😀 My favourite ones are creamy, cheescakey puddings. Especially with jelly. In my home we used to have a cake with powdered milk divided into coco and vanilla layers and fruit jelly- yummmy. Unfortunately I found it a bit difficult to find powdered milk in a shop which isn’t granulated. I had to come up with something different and a bit healthier (but don’t worry I will make the proper version at some point :)). In the mean time you can try this recipe with greek yoghurt.
