Date Shake

Date Shake

It is a little weird isn't it? Combining milk and dates, but it tastes absolutely awesome. This is such a refreshing sweet drink and it's so easy to make. It only requires three ingredients. Yes only three! Oh also there's no need to add sugar as the dates are sweet enough.

No bake Mango and Strawberry Pie

No bake Mango and Strawberry Pie
The weather has been so hot. Here in the UK we've been experiencing a heatwave, which is different and nice, but it does make fasting a lot harder. Not being able to drink water or eat food until sunset has been difficult, however it does make me realise how lucky I am. Here I can drink water as soon as the sun starts to set, but there are people around the world who havn't drank water or eaten any food in days. So I have to say Ramadhan has really helped me to be thankful for all the things I have and that I do need to do more charity work to help the poor and needy.

Anyways, let me introduce you to my mango and strawberry pie. My dad claimed it was one of the best desserts I've made! I have to agree with him. This is such a refreshing dessert, so fruity its perfect for summer!

Ok first of all I need to apologise for not updating the blog regularly. I know it's been quite a while since I last posted a recipe, so I'm very sorry about that and hopefully this time I'll be able to post more recipes up regularly.

Date and Walnut Cake

Date and walnut cake
This cake was one of the first cakes I made when I got into baking and since then it has become a family favourite! 

I once made it for school and my friends really enjoyed it, one of them has been begging me for the recipe, but now that we both live in different countries I havn't been able to make it for her and she's been craving for this mouth watering cake. So this post is mainly for my dearest friend so that she does not have to wait to come to England to have this cake, she can now make it herself and have it in her own home.

The cake itself is very moist due to the addition of dates and walnuts, which add that little bit of sweetness and texture. If you love dates then this is the cake for you! Don't worry if you are not a big fan of walnuts, I'm not either. However I do suggest to add a tiny amount of walnuts as it does liven up the cake.

Now I am not a big fan of profiteroles or eclairs, but when my niece and I were watching Bake with Anna Olsen I couldn't resist myself to make some. I was quite shocked at how easy they were to make and what surprised me even more was the taste! I absolutely loved them.

Pretty Cupcakes with Raspberry Frosting

Due to my exams I took a break from work, but now that they have all finished I'm back to enjoying my job. For my first day back at work I wanted to give my colleagues something special, what's more special than making something with my own hands? So I thought of the best edible gift...Cupcakes!

Coconut Chocolate Chip Scones with Lime

Coconut Chocolate Chip Scones with Lime
In my home we love tea time. It's usually a couple of hours after lunch, around at 4:30pm and the whole family sits down in the living room enjoying a nice hot cup of tea or coffee with delicious biscuits.
