Whether by mandatory quarantine or voluntary isolation, the truth is that many people are at home. At first, this can be a great time to clean your house and see a lot of TV, but after some time it can be boring unless you find things to do.
For this reason, we decided to launch every Tuesday new challenges or things that you can do. This week, we are going to give you some cake recipes that we are sure you’ll going to be able to do and share with those who are at home with yous (but if you are alone, don’t worry, more for you!).
I hate to cook lunch or dinner but I absolutely love making desserts, especially cakes. My family is always waiting for me to make this kind of sweats and some friends from work also ask me to do.
I decided to collect some very simple recipes for you, that were all made by me in the last few months and I have to admit that none of them save on calories. If you have a sweet tooth then this is for you. All have been tested and approved by the people that live with me…no one was hurt, don’t worry!
The photos are very simple, I took them to share with family and friends. I never thought of sharing these recipes that were adapted by me. But now I did.
I hope you like them and we would like it very much that you share it with us your favorite recipes.
This is the easiest recipe that I have and the most versatile because you can use almost everything that you want or like on top of them: fruit, yogurt, honey.
- 2 eggs
- 1 spoon of sugar (I’m not going to lie, I always put two)
- 70g of butter (I normally put it on the microwave to melt a little)
- 300ml milk (you can also use soja milk, but if you do, don’t add sugar)
- 250g flour
Mix everything, take a non-stick frying pan and put a little butter, with a ladle spoon put a little of the mixture, over low heat. The time to turn it will depend on your stove, but usually, when it starts to form bubbles, it’s time to turn.
I love muffins, I like to make them normal, with raisins but my favorites are with apple. These take a little more time than the pancakes but nothing too major.
- 2 eggs
- 1 cup of sugar
- 1 tablespoon of vanilla extract
- 1/2 cup of butter
- 1/2 tablespoon of salt
- 1/2 tablespoon of baking powder
- 3 cups of apples
- 2 cups of flour
Mix it all. The secret is to crush the apples with a mixer and if you like you can add a little cinnamon. If you want, just exchange the apple to raisins. The oven must not be more than 200 degrees, or they can burn. Pay attention to the time because the muffins cook very quickly (+/- 15 minutes).
Carrot and chocolate cake
When I want a recipe that I know that’s gonna be a success, I immediately think about this one! I learn how to make this cake a few years ago and I can say that this cake never let me down. It’s my secret cake and I will only share with you because I still don’t have a daughter to pass his heritage and because you really need something to cheer you up with all the bad news that is around the world.
- 3 carrots or 4 if they are very small (must be scraped on a scraper)
- 4 eggs
- 1 tablespoon of salt
- 150g of sugar
- 100g of butter
- 1 Orange (juice and zest)
- 200g of flour
- 50g of cornstarch flour
- 1 tablespoon of baker powder
- 100g of culinary chocolate
- 30g of butter
- 4 tablespoons of milk
Done! It’s so easy! You just have o mix everything for the cake, you can even use a mixer if you want. The oven should be hot when you put the cake inside (190 degrees), wait approximately 40 minutes. Let the cake rest and apply the top when the cake is cold. It’s so good.
