Chocolate - Coffee Cake





I believe that every special occasion needs it's special celebrating cake. A few days ago I had so much fun taking part in my oldest friend's baby shower party and as you could probably tell - the cake was on me. Everyone was craving some chocolate so the decision was obvious. Whether you have a special day coming up or you just simply want to pamper yourself after hard work, this cake will not disappoint you. It's very chocolatey and has a touch of coffee flavour which is the reason why we had it for the breakfast as well (in the end we all looked pregnant). Added vegetable oil gives this cake a wonderful texture you just cannot get enough of. I followed the recipe for the cake but made my own icing. However you could do your spin on it and decorate cake with fruits or some whipped cream.

750 ml
500 g granulated sugar
150 g cocoa powder
2 tsp baking soda
2 g salt
500 ml cooled brewed coffee
250 ml vegetable oil 
10 g vanilla 
45 ml cider vinegar





Preheat your oven to 180 C. Line round cake tin with baking paper and set aside. Get two bowls for wet and dry ingredients. Sift flour, sugar, cocoa powder, baking soda and pinch of salt into a bowl and mix well. Then prepare 500 ml of brewed coffee and add vanilla extract. Whisk it together while slowly pouring vegetable oil in. If you want to cut calories down, you could substitute oil for buttermilk, yoghurt or sour cream. Add cider vinegar and you are almost done! 

Now mix dry and wet ingredients together until well combined. It should make a thick mixture. 

Put your cake tin in the oven for 25-30 minutes or until the toothpick comes out clean


Ultimate Snowfairy Pavlova




Our world is filled with so much inspiration. Everything is connected without you even realizing it and that’s what I love the most. We all tend to wait till some significant days to come so then we can be happy again. But don’t we have many more reasons to celebrate? We should feel festive each day because every day brings memories that we hold dear through the years. Each day is filled with unforgettable moments even if you don’t realize it just yet... Invite some friends over or simply set the table for family dinner and let’s party! For me, one of the simplest ways to bring festive mode on is to try a new recipe. And here comes this ultimate Pavlova cake inspired by the eternal talent of russian ballet dancer Anna Pavlova. Even though New Zealand and Australia can't decide who invented this cake, one thing is certain - Pavlova cake will bring festive mood to your house all year long. This meringue based cake has fluffy almost snowy center and crispy crust and reminds me of perfect winter day
