BBC Recipe App – Blueberry Lemon Cheesecakes

Yes, my last post is a while ago, but that doesn’t mean that I have been living under a rock for the last couple of weeks. I will take this week to update with some posts, because I have been taking tons of photo‘s, probably the reason why I didn’t take the time to sort and adjust them….

Let me start with my new addiction: the BBC GoodFood Cake Recipes App for Iphone.

Besides the fact that the app works well, is easy to use and has well explained recipes with also nutrition information, it has amazing looking photo’s of all the deliciousness of the recipes it contains. So, whenever I find myself having some time, like sitting in the bus or when I can’t get to sleep, I browse through the yummy sweeties.

When I saw the recipe for “Blueberry Lemon Cakes With Cheesecake Topping” I knew I had to make these first. So, when we went over to a friend for an english sunday lunch, I decided to provide a sweet for my friends.

And I’m glad I did, these little cheesecakes with blueberry, have a fresh sweetness, which are a delight to anybody who you serve them to.

I bought some lamps to improve my (blog) photo’s, I made these great photo’s. So sorry if I just over-posted with photo’s but I just couldn’t choose.

For those of you who don’t have the App you can find the recipe here

Enjoy!!

If life gives you lemons…

…make a lemon drizzle cake

But first I have to tell you what a bad girl I am; About two weeks ago I  while I was waiting for my take away, I was reading a magazine in which I found a four page article with cake recipes amongst which this lemon cake recipe

which looked delicious, and I got that greedy feeling that I just had to have these recipes. 
 so as sneakily as possible I tried to rip out inch by inch while people around me enjoyed their diner, and before I had the whole thing my order was ready…  

I had to try a sort of Houdini article trick, and thanked kindly for the food. I know it was not my most decent moment, but I could not help myself.

As for the actual cake, my sister invited my family and ourselves over for an easter brunch, and this light lemon cake seemed like a good addition for the afternoon.

It was a great afternoon, with lovely food; of course eggs,  freshly baked bread and delicious cheeses then a little “tea break” when we were entertained by my sisters’ cats Russel & Jacky

In round two we had fresh fruit with cream & lemon cake which I also served with lemon curd mixed with mascarpone.

Besides of course for lemons, you need 3 eggs, flower, baking powder, almonds & milk.

But to prevent you getting into the same situation as I did I found the recipe online here

my addition to this recipe is some grounded chocolate in between the dough

Enjoy!!

*** update : visit this post at my moved blog : HERE ***

Last night it was my boyfriends E’s very fancy birthday party. So, instead of buying a normal card or flowers I wanted to surprise him with home-baked chocolate cookies.

I used the recipe for double chocolate cookies from the Hummingbird Cookbook.

The cookies are surprisingly easy to make, and a guaranteed success to whom ever will receive them
