Peach Crumb Cake

By Shiran

Peach Crumb Cake |

Moist and tender sour cream coffee cake with juicy peaches and a crunchy crumbly topping. Just when I thought that my favorite coffee cake couldn’t possibly get any better, I decided to add peaches! That’s because there’s a bag full of them laying in my kitchen that my mom gave me last weekend, which isn’t […]

No-Bake Cheesecake

By Shiran

Perfect No-Bake Cheesecake |

This is my favorite recipe for no-bake cheesecake. It’s simple and quick to make and holds its shape well. Writing my last post about my favorite kitchen products brought back memories from my days as a novice baker. Before having a “real” oven, I used a tiny toaster oven for any baked goods, believing that […]

Coconut Cake

By Shiran

Perfect Coconut Tea Cake |

This moist, fluffy, delicate coconut cake makes the perfect side to tea. With a slight crunch and subtle coconut flavor, it pairs amazingly well with flavors such as citrus and rum. Along with chocolate chips and peanut butter cups, I used to keep toasted coconut flakes in a secret spot in the kitchen. Much like […]

Cinnamon Roll Cake

Cinnamon swirl cake that tastes just like cinnamon rolls! |

This moist cake is swirled with a cinnamon-sugar mixture and frosted with a sweet white glaze that makes it taste just like cinnamon rolls – but without the extra work! Days like these remind me of the pure pleasure of having a food blog. It’s not just about baking delicious sweets, but also (actually more) […]

Pineapple Upside Down Cake

By Shiran

Pineapple Upside Down Cake |

Moist cake topped with pineapples and a thick caramel sauce. It’s made upside-down, then flipped over after baking. A few months ago, while I was wandering around on Pinterest (like I do about every 2 hours), I stumbled upon a photo of my banana upside down cake on the front page. I kept scrolling down […]

Chocolate Banana Cake

By Shiran

Ultimate Chocolate Banana Cake |

Moist and rich, this cake is the chocolate version of my favorite recipe for banana bread. This cake is the result of two people, each asking me to make their favorite dessert – one banana bread, the other a chocolate cake – but only having enough time to make one. Combining these two flavors into […]

Simple Classic Cheesecake

By Shiran

Simple and classic cheesecake |

Rich, creamy, and satiny, this is my go-to recipe for a simple and classic cheesecake. I’m back from Spain – well, at least physically. Mentally, I’m still walking through the narrow picturesque passageways of Seville, sharing a huge paella with hubby, and doing some shopping. And by some, I mean a lot. See why it’s […]

Strawberry Shortcake

By Shiran

Perfect Strawberry Shortcake |

This is my favorite recipe for classic strawberry shortcake – a dessert made of sweet, juicy strawberries and whipped cream layered in a perfectly rich biscuit. I’ve just booked tickets to Spain, and I’m beyond excited! So excited, in fact, that any attempt I’ve made in the last 10 minutes to type words such as […]

Simple Strawberry Cake

By Shiran

Simple Fresh Strawberry Cake |

Easy and simple to make, this beautifully tempting cake is moist, flavorful, and loaded with juicy strawberries. While my first idea of a title for this cake was “Summer Cake”, we’re actually in the middle of a winter storm here, so I figured that might not be the best idea. Plus, although strawberries look like […]

Chocolate Bundt Cake

By Shiran

Chocolate Sour Cream Bundt Cake |

This incredibly moist, rich, and super chocolaty sour cream Bundt cake is delicious on its own, but a drizzle of chocolate glaze makes it incredible! I knew the weather was supposed to be bad today. Since there’s never much winter here, and since I woke up to a sunny sky, I figured the weatherman must […]
