COCONUT SWEET BREAD

COCONUT SWEET BREAD

Coconut Sweet Bread is loaded with goodies such as raisins, candied cherries and coconut. It’s a perfect treat that’s addictive but not too sweet.   It’s a new year – yes I’m one month late, and I’ve decided to make a few changes and shift my focus a bit.  From the inception of this blog, back when it was a little baby that resided over on blogger and I had all but 6 readers (my family), I’ve been creating recipes to...Read more …
BUTTER COOKIES

BUTTER COOKIES

   Every household has its traditions at the holidays and it’s safe to say that having a tin of Royal Danish Butter Cookies has always been a part of our traditions.  I grew up always having a tin lying around the house at Christmas time and now that I have my own family, I find myself always buying these at Christmas.  I decided to give it a try at making these butter cookies at home.  One of my favorites in...Read more …

SPANISH FLAN

SPANISH FLAN

     I’ve always been a huge fan of custard type desserts; baked custard and crème brulee are all on the top of my list so it’s only natural that flan would be a part of that list.  Flan or Crème Caramel is a baked custard dessert with a sweet caramel sauce that’s popular in Mexico, Cuba, Puerto Rica and many other Spanish speaking countries.  This sweet dessert has a dense, smooth and silky texture and all it takes is...Read more …
QUEEN CAKES

QUEEN CAKES

  Queen Cakes were the first cupcakes that I’ve ever had so it has always had a place in my heart.  Recently I found myself thumbing through What’s Cooking in Guyana and landed on the recipe for queen cakes.  Queen cakes are a bit denser than the traditional cupcake and its texture is similar to a sponge cake.  I did a quick search on the internet and all of the recipes have dried fruit, however the queen cakes I grew...Read more …
BREAD AND BUTTER PUDDING

BREAD AND BUTTER PUDDING

Recently a follower on Instagram asked for a recipe for bread and butter pudding and that’s when it dawned on me that I hadn’t added this recipe to my blog.   I have 2 bread pudding recipes(bread pudding, pumpkin butter croissant bread pudding) but no bread and butter pudding, which is quite odd seeing how I grew up eating the latter.  Bread and butter pudding is a type of bread pudding that is common in British cuisine; Guyana is a former...Read more …
SOURSOP ICE CREAM

SOURSOP ICE CREAM

  Soursop has always been one of my favorite fruits.  I’m always asked to describe the taste and to be honest it’s quite difficult to describe.   When ripe the inside is soft and creamy and is slightly sweet and a slightly sour at the same time.  One of my favorite ways to eat fresh soursop is to mix the pulp with condensed milk.  Since living in the States, it’s very difficult to find the fresh fruit; I usually buy the...Read more …
