Cinnamon Roll Cake Recipe

Honestly, this is probably the easiest and fastest cake I have ever baked.

Now the trick is, they do use a ready cake mix, which I kind of dislike, as I usually prefer making my cakes from scratch, but sometimes, you are just in a hurry and want to get just not any cake, but home baked cake. This can be it.

However, I do plan to try it out again by substituting the cake mix with the ingredients of the cake mix and see the turn out, I sure will update you all on that.

Meanwhile, and since this cake was very popular on my instagram and I received the most ever messages in my inbox with people asking me for the recipe, I no longer wanted to delay sharing it anymore. And since Ramadan is tomorrow, this actually can be (for people who fast) the best quick fix if you really get the sugar cravings after iftar.

I first tried this cake at my cousins house, and I loved it, asked her for her recipe, and she gave me the recipe of Cookies and Cups with her amendments which I have used and included below. I must assure you, this cake will become your next obsession.

So what my cousin changed in the recipe, is she substituted the icing to hot milk instead. And to be frank, the cake without the icing (that contains 2 more cups of sugar) is already very sweet, and the substation of the milk instead, gave the cake a moist to die for.

So here goes the recipe,

Please let me know once you do try it, I always love to hear comments.

Original recipe found on Cookies and Cups 

The following has my cousin’s adjustments and some of my substituted options to some ingredients

Ingredients

1 Box of Yellow Cake Mix (I could not find Yellow cake mix in my neighborhood shop, so I used the Vanilla which was fine)

4 Eggs

3/4 Vegetable Oil (you can use coconut oil instead, I tried both and they worked fine)

1 teaspoon Vanilla

1 cup of Sour Cream

1 cup of Brown sugar (I used half a cup the second time, as 1 cup was too sweet)

1 teaspoon of ground Cinnamon

For the Icing: 

1 Cup of Milk (you can use low or full fat and you can also use up 2 cups)

3 Spoons of powdered sugar (feel free to use less or even none)

Orange Chocolate Cake | كيكة برتقال وشوكولاتة.

Ramadan is incomplete without dessert right after your main dish. I am writing this blog post during the Holly month of Ramadan, when Muslims fast for a whole month. The beautiful thing is that we only fast from sunrise to sunset and then we can just indulge and enjoy what we prepare. Fasting is a way to examine self restrains and constrains. A beautiful spiritual month, where family and friends unite, everyday, for Iftar after they break their fast.

Today, I decided to share with you one of my favorite recipes besides the Fererro Rocher Cake. For both chocolate and fruit lovers. The taste combination of Oranges and Chocolate is just enriching. I personally can never get enough of it.

I found this Recipe on the Bakers Royale food blog, and it was the first time for me to try any of the recipes. This one turned out to be great, delicious, soft and tasteful and worth sharing. I changed minor things to the original recipe, and translated it into Arabic.

Have a wonderful Iftar or dinner everyone.

A full step by step recipe for the Ferrero Rocher Cake… Make them all fall in love with you.

Ferrero Rocher Cake.

It was snowing here in Amman, Jordan. And for those of you who don’t know much about Jordan, it snows a couple of days a year, and when it snows, it becomes a public holiday. So the day I decided to try the Ferrero Rocher recipe from the boxofspice blog, it was snowing, we were stuck at home for 3 days, with options of watching TV, playing with the snow, risking an adventurous drive around town or try and bake the sexiest cake ever.

Ferrero Rocher is sexy, and therefore a Ferrero Rocher Cake is just a phenomenal idea. Who would say no for a piece of that? The trick here is that the ingredients are not very cheap, and the process is not very simple. But I must admit, that if you enjoy baking, then the process of baking this cake is so much fun. It is a beautiful 3 step process, and it really feels like an equation, either a successful one or a miss. Thankfully and thanks to the recipe provided by boxofspice, the steps were very simple to follow and the result was just fantabulous.Step by step recipe to a ferrero rocher chocolate cake

As usual, minor changes have been made while I was baking this cake due to what was available. I recommend you bake it when you have the time, put some good music on, and just indulge in the baking process. Original recipe is on boxofspice,

For all the Chocolate lovers, this is your favorite Birthday home baked Dark Chocolate Pie…

Dark Chocolate Pie.

I probably never mentioned this in my blog posts before, but I am a chocolate lover, a chocolate addict, I think it is my weakest point. Get me upset, then get me chocolates and I will fall in love with you all over again. Yes, I am a big fan of Chocolates, and this here is a recipe for those who enjoy indulging in chocolate.

I first came across this recipe while I was browsing one of my favorite food bloggers,HummingBird High Blog. I am not sure what made me click on the recipe for it was called “Hot Fudge Brownie Sundae Pie” and I am not a big fan of sundaes nor brownies. But as soon as I saw the photographs I couldn’t resist not baking. I did change it a little and I did decide not to name it the same but instead, to name it ” Dark Chocolate Pie”.I did make this recipe few times before posting it and so I did find my own alterations, but the recipe is from the HummingBird blog and it is genius. I did create the pie in a heart once for my Mothers birthday and I did call it the “Magic Chocolate Pie”, and told all our invites to make a wish as they had their bites. I believe that when you are in a moment of bliss, a moment of ultimate happiness, or ultimate sadness, your wishes can be made from your deepest heart, and they can truly become true.

Here is a recipe for a delighted heart and an unforgettable taste of chocolate.

Navel Orange Upside Down Cake

Orange Cake Experimenting

I have learnt that with experience, learning, exploring, writing, baking and being all artistic in my own way is my way to get closer to discover myself, and since I will be meeting a lot of people for my next project, and since I wish to spread as much love as possible and since I have a beautiful blog and since I am trying to find myself…. Today I decided to start with exterminating baking with Oranges… and yes I want to explore and experiment until I find the best next orange cake recipe ever… I picked my first Orange recipe for this experimentation from the www.hummingbirdhigh.com by Michelle who is also behind my inspiration to start my own food section as a Middle-Eastern.

Before the hummingbirdhigh.com blog, I discovered the love for baking when I was trying to make moist chewy cookies that resembled to my childhood memory of some delicious cookies I once had. And after mastering my cookie baking “and I do bake amazing cookies” I just wanted to continue baking “the discovery of my passion for baking”.

Baking

So I went to nearest supermarket and started listing what I have to buy: Butter 1JD a stick, Brown Sugar 2.60JD, Lemon 1.30JD/Kilo, Navel Oranges 1.35JD/Kilo, All purpose flour 1JD a bag, Baking powder 0.75Fils, Salt container 0.40Fils, Vanilla tube 0.45Fils, 4Eggs 0.65Fils, Sour Cream 2.40JD. This recipe will cost (considering the amount needed): 10JD and if you do have the primary ingredients at home (Flour, Salt, Eggs, Baking Powder, Sugar): it will cost around 6JD. So I got what was missing from my house and went back home to start baking not my first cake with Oranges but my very first cake for this experimenting project: Navel Oranges upside down Cake.

I put my things on the table, played a song that has been on my mind all day by Shiny Toy Guns “If I lost you”

The original recipe: Blood Orange Upside Down Cake only I couldn’t find Blood Oranges and I am allergic to corn so I changed the recipe into all-purpose flour and navel oranges and renamed it to be the Navel Oranges upside down Cake.

NavelUpsideDown Cake

I also divided the cake into 3 cake pans to share it with family, friends and my most beautiful grandfather. It turned out to be delicious, and so much fun to bake. So yes, I do recommend you try it at home, and you can share your notes if you have any with me, and if you have any questions I can always get back to you.
