Hummingbird cake with cream cheese frosting – recipe

I met this super nice couple from the United states this summer.

The cake it self is packed with bananas, pineapple and nuts (pecans or walnuts) and infused with vanilla and cinnamon. It is super moist and loves to be covered in delicious cream cheese frosting. Yummy! Continue reading

Delicious yet oh so simple chocolate cake

I would like to share with you my go-to recipe for the most delicious yet oh so simple chocolate cake.

If all I want to do is “throw” a chocolate cake in the oven and I just can’t be bothered with a “first mix this and then this in a separate bowl ….” kind of recipe then this is my go to recipe. But that said, I also use this one for wedding cakes and birthday cakes. I guess I use it more or less for everything except maybe cupcakes, it’s maybe not firm enough for that. Continue reading
