To cut a long story short, there is a really good reason why I stopped posting recipes and why I stopped visiting all my favorite food blogs.
This really good reason made me feel nauseous for 5 full months, turning all the previously drool-worthy photos to a nightmare. When I was cooking it would be something bland and “hospital-like”, I could not see any photo of fish/seafood or any heavy-looking dish, and sadly I could not even bake a dessert.
So, yes, I am pregnant and, obviously, now that my nausea is gone my excitement has doubled.
I am not going to say anything else about it, I will not bore you with details, this blog (as I once told my friend Camilla) will NOT become baby- or pregnancy-oriented.
Moving on to the recipe then! Drums of suspense… A cake!
This is a delicious upside-down apple cake, with a delicious taste of cinnamon and a soft cake part!
It is also ridiculously easy to prepare!
Time for dessert! Or breakfast
Serving today: Chocolate chip banana muffins! There’s no denial chocolate is to banana what a glove is to a hand. Perfect combination!
And those muffins are fluffy and delicious!
And really, very simple to bake!
What do you do when you have a bucket full of walnuts and no plans to just eat them?
You make a pie.
A very easy, very decadent pie, with great walnut and chocolate taste.
Did I mention it is soaked in syrup? Yes. It. Is.
I have baked and cooked several things recently (thank you long weekend!), but I decided to post this cake because of sentimental reasons:
First thing I prepared using my brand new Kenwood stand mixer!
The combination of blueberries with cream cheese is really fantastic, and each bite is filled with both!
Do you like banana?
I don’t. Unless it’s an ice cream flavor or in THIS cake!
Quoting: “This is the best dessert you’ve ever made and one of the best I’ve ever tried!”, Pan (husband).
This is my first banana bread and I was impressed! Mashed banana can do miracles for the softness and moistness of a cake.
And melting chocolate chunks can do miracles for, well, everything!
