Merry Berry Christmas

Merry Christmas cake angels!

I hope you’re all having a wonderful day surrounded by friends, family, rich foods, desserts, and sweet wines!

Christmas always seems to be a time of repeated recipes in my household. Despite my eagerness to flaunt my baking abilities and showcase new recipes, my household love to request their favourite bakes… This Christmas I baked two light and crunchy Apple Streusel cakes, with a warm berry compote. Close your eyes and picture this, a light and fluffy vanilla cake lying beneath a layer of apples, and a crunchy bed of streusel topping. Drizzled over the cake is a cocktail of sweet n sour summer berries, the perfect winter warmer.

These are two of the simplest recipes you’ll find on the cupcakinglydelicious blog. Check out the Recipes page for the how-to.

Have yourself a Merry Berry Christmas!

Love, Peace & Joy,

Gobble til you Wobble

Happy Thanksgiving ya’ll!

I imagine you’ve all been salivating over your roasted turkey, silk smooth gravy; crispy, golden potatoes and mac’n’cheese (with your side of fresh vegetables I hope!) I thought what better dessert for this holiday than a warm, apple treat. There’s something beautiful about eating an apple-based dessert inside a cosy home, while the chilly Autumn season passes by…

I chose an apple-crumble-sponge-cake, otherwise known as the Apple Streusel Cake. The cake is built on a foundation of light and fluffy sponge cake. Topped with a thinly sliced layer of sweet n sour green apples, and a light n crunchy, golden crumble sprinkled on top. This dessert is the perfect end to any heavy meal; it’s not too sweet that you feel the guilt of gluttony, and you can count the apples as part of your 5-a-day! But if you’ve already crossed the line of ‘gobble til ya wobble’ then you may as well add a side of vanilla or toffee ice cream!

Happy Turkey day to all my American friends and family all the way from chilly England :)

Have a beautiful day,
