Nutella covered Blueberry & Milka pancake muffins

What is better than pancakes? – Pancake muffins! I love preparing cupcakes and muffins because they’re smaller versions of cakes and pies that I would usually make, and pretty easy to share with friends and family. At least once a week I prepare a different batch of cupcakes, and bring them with me to pubs…

Lava cake (Gluten-free)

Celiac disease is a serious autoimmune disorder that can occur in genetically predisposed people where the ingestion of gluten leads to damage in the small intestine. When it comes to gluten it is generally referred to proteins that can be found in wheat flour, so people who have Celiac disease can’t eat different pastry products,…

Chocolate almond cookies

Yesterday was Halloween and even though the celebration itself isn’t as popular here in Croatia, many night clubs still organize parties where people dress up and have fun. The last time I dressed up in a costume was when I was a kid, since I went both to Croatian and American school where we learned…

Chocolate chestnut cake

Today a friend of mine is celebrating her birthday. As every year I’m planning on making her a cake as a surprise, or some kind of a¬†dessert like cupcakes, but has to be something with chocolate. As she will be reading this post, I have to say I still don’t have an idea what I’m…

Double decker cake

It’s that time of the week! –¬† The day when I share a cake or any type of dessert recipe a sweet-tooth would love to try. I have to admit I’m not as big of a sweet-tooth as some of my friends but when I bake, I know I’m going to be as happy as…

Oreo cheesecake

For the last few weeks, while staying at the seaside I didn’t make any cakes. Usually when on vacation I don’t bake cakes since I’m mostly out of the house, or there aren’t as many people to share them with. So I’ve been imagining cakes, getting new ideas, thinking about new recipes and can’t wait…

Pumpkin banana pie

Pies have been around for thousands of years, ancient Egyptians made them, Greeks also and Romans probably got them from the Greeks. The first pie recipe was published by the Romans and it was for the Rye-crusted goat cheese and honey pie. It’s interesting how actually the first pies were mostly meat pies, even though…

Berry cake roll

Cake roll, jelly roll, cream roll or Swiss roll is an easy sponge cake filled with fruit, icing, jam or whipped cream. Even though the name suggests the cake originated from Switzerland it is believed that it originated in Austria in the 19th century. The first mention of a cake roll was actually in a…

Chocolate muffins

Everyone has a recipe for chocolate muffins. They are probably the first dessert everyone makes because they are so easy to prepare. They are also my mother’s specialty since she prepared them for every big occasion when I was in kindergarten. My friends loved chocolate muffins and still do, it’s funny how growing up some…

Chocolate chip cookies

For the past few days I was racking my brain thinking of what to buy for a friend of mine for her birthday. First I wanted to surprise her with a shopping coupon in her favourite store but that didn’t feel as original or personal as I wanted it to be. Then I wanted to…

Vanilla, chocolate & strawberry cake

Today I was on a run, the first jog in a while just for the beginning of spring. I really try to exercise as much as I can and I live near one of the most beautiful parks in Zagreb, so the best way to do so is to go on a jog. For my…

Chocolate hazelnut muffins

Hey guys! For me muffins are a starter cake, meaning before you want to try and make a cake, you can practice with muffins. If you get them perfect, you’re ready to make a cake. There are so many combinations of ingredients and recipes you can try out. Chocolate ones are the most common and…
