Plum Cake ala Food52

Dessert

IMG_5271

When it comes to dessert, I tend to go rustic. I see this pattern on my blog too. Most dessert recipes I do involve a high degree of simplicity and…lots of fruits! Fruit cake/pastry/cookie appeal to me. They taste amazing and look genuine, sincere, and friendly. I find their uncomplicated nature to be charming.

Speaking of rustic dessert, I saw an attractive recipe from Food52 the other day: Olive Oil Ricotta Cake with Plums. Being crazy about plums, I had to try it. Though I couldn’t make mine to look as pretty as Food52’s (yet), the cake came out great, sweet, tart, and lemony–delicious, as predicted. (Notes:¬†Mine was sweet enough, so I didn’t dust the cake with powdered sugar as the original recipe suggested. I also sliced my plums into thinner cuts.)

Hope you like it and thank you for stopping by.

Peace

The Softest Lemon Cookies with Blueberries – Venturing Into the Baking World

Baking, Dessert

For a newcomer in the baking world, a successful recipe trial makes a positive reinforcement. It feels really good to open the oven, see the wonderful baking result, and take that first sweet bite. I’d always tell myself to bake more after that one great bite.

I found this wonderful recipe called Soft and Fluffy Blueberry Lemon Cookies by a fellow blogger, Baker Bettie. As the name suggest, the cookies come out soft, lemony, and blueberry sweet. I love the light and fruity taste of these cookies.

Another great recipe discovery. I hope to find more to try. Thanks, Baker Bettie!
