Vanilla and Lime Marble Cupcakes

Vanilla and Lime Marble Cupcakes

When citrus is in season, I do a lot of baking with lemons, but lemons aren’t the only citrus out there and I think limes don’t get used as much as they could be.

Marbled Coconut Bread

Marbled Coconut Bread

One of my favorite quick breads is the coconut bread from bills, a restaurant in Sydney Australia. The bread has a dense and tender crumb, is very moist and has a great coconut flavor.

Zebra Cake slice, up close

Visually, I believe that this zebra-striped cake is one of the most impressive looking cakes I’ve ever made. Especially because I have a soft spot in my heart for animal prints. I’ve seen this cake online for a while now, on various blogs and in various forms, but haven’t actually gotten around to trying it myself until now. It has a huge WOW factor for ... Read More »

Chocolate Marble Cookies

marble cookies

 By and large, cookie doughs tend to be all one flavor – usually chocolate or vanilla. It’s easy to throw some chocolate chips into cookie dough if you want to add a bit of chocolate to your baking, but since marble cakes represent one of the best ways to feature chocolate and vanilla in the same cake, why not marble two different cookie doughs to get ...
