Super Moist Chocolate Fudge Cake

It’s a chocolate cake. It’s a fudge cake. It’s a super moist cake. It’s heavenly rich & moist chocolate fudge cake.

I realized that I had plenty of milk chocolate bars in my kitchen pantry which were stored up for snacks over TV time, but they were just too plentiful that I had to find a way to reduce the inventory. I thought baking a chocolate cake, a milk chocolate cake, was a right idea.

Yes, this was my super moist chocolate fudge cake using confectionery milk chocolate bars to make. For the fact that milk chocolates (instead of baking dark chocolates) were used, it was ideally flavored. The richness of the chocolate was pleasant, not at all over-whelming. I wouldn’t feel repelled from having it in a big slice. read more

Mini Cinnamon Rolls and Sweet Cinnamon Swirl Loaf

“Soft, fluffy and moist homemade Cinnamon swirl bread, so likeable by everyone!”

Break making is easy. You don’t require master’s skills to have a freshly baked loaf at home.

I read a few blogs about making cinnamon bread. So, I tried baking it on my own, too. I baked both the sweet cinnamon rolls as well as cinnamon swirl loaf, just to test which way yields better textured bread.

The result is varied depends on your liking and serving occasion. For me, I loved the swirl loaf as it was overall softer even the top crust, while it will be more presentable to have it made into small rolls, for serving guests and as gift to friends. read more
