Chocolate Banana Pops

So it is meant to be summer soon although, the British weather disagrees! Even so, this has not stopped me from buying summery clothes or eating summery foods. If you have read my previous posts then you will know that I love ice cream as I have expressed here and here. I would love to be able to make my own ice cream, but all the recipes I have found that I would like to try require an ice cream maker or another kitchen item which I do not possess! So, I found an alternative-ish. Chocolate and Banana Pops.

These pops are a healthier take on Cake Pops. They are super easy to make and really, really addictive to eat! You have been warned, once you eat one you cannot stop.

So onto the 'recipe'. I say 'recipe' because there really is no recipe to it except a couple of steps. The finished product is super cute and would be great to do with younger children. These are great but I would not advise to make them for a party as they need to be consumed as quickly as they are made!

Vanilla Oreo Cupcakes

Ok, where do I start? I don't really like Oreos's on their own that much but I kind of have an obsession for Oreo things. Weird, I know right?. Let me give you an example, cookies and cream ice cream made using Oreos! If I am in an ice cream shop that has cookies and cream ice cream then you can be sure that I will be having it!

Anyway, as you are fully aware, it is my birthday and also my friends birthday very, very soon and so for the occasion, I decided to make Oreo Cupcakes. I took influences for this recipe from different places so I did not have a set recipe, so I sorta, kinda made it up on the spot. Given so, I am pleased to say that this is probably the best thing that I have ever made and they received a really good reaction. I made 24 cupcakes in total (double this recipe) and they were gone in less than an hour!

Sneak peek!

Just wanted to show you a cheeky preview of the posts that are going to come. I have a lot of exams on at the moment so it is going to take me a couple of days to put these posts together, but rest assured they are going to be up very soon!

Honey Slice Recipe (Mezes Lap Recept)

My grandma came to visit us recently and the biggest thing she brought with her was her recipes. In a two week stay, we baked about 5 times! I probably put on a bit of weight because of this but I think it was worth it.

We baked many different cakes and this is just one of them but probably my favourite out of all the ones we made. If I am not mistaken, then this recipe originates from Hungary (or it could be Romania...) and can be adapted for any filling but this is the traditional recipe. This recipe is quite tricky and I would advise to do it with someone else as 4 hands are better than one. If you need some help with it, feel free to email me.
