SiliKoMart sent me these silicone molds to review together with a silicone mat and a package of sugar pasta.  Thank you silikomart for the lovely gift.   I would rate this product with five stars as they do not need any greasing and the cakes come out very easily.  They wash easily even in the washing […]

The crust is the same for both cheesecakes.  Each one is different in taste and texture but both delicious. You can see below in the video how I shaped the crust. Two different Chocolate […]

Karydopita (walnut cake) is one of the most delicious, traditional Greek cakes.  I have already posted two «Karydopita» recipes (see links below) but this new twist of mine is my all times favourite.  This time I made it with semolina flour, olive oil, orange syrup and added a chocolate ganache made with orange fruit preserve […]

Flashback six years ago.  In 2007 was the year I decided to take early retirement.  To fill my spare time,  I started copying my old recipes as my scrap books were torn, greasy and falling apart.  I decided that it would be better to copy them on my computer so that in the future I […]

I made this cake last Saturday when a friend of mine called me to tell me that she was coming to visit and stay with us for a few days.  Of course this was discussed the previous week but she wasn” t sure when she would be coming.  On Saturday I got a last minute […]

  Last night my children came to visit us.  I made this lovely cherry cake but having to do so many other things,  I forgot to take more pictures of the cake. I’ve made cherry cakes before but the cherries always seem to sink inside when baked.  This time I reserved some cherries which I […]

The other night when I was making the Almond Paste for the Christmas cake, I had two egg yolks which I wanted to use.  I decided that the best way to use them was to make a custard cream.  However, I still wanted to make a lovely Espresso Coconut Roulade I saw a few days […]
