Starbucks Lemon Poppyseed Bread

When I tried the lemon poppyseed bread at Starbucks, I fell in love. It was so good, and I’ve inspired a lot of my friends to try it too! We all love it, so after a few times buying it, I realized I could simply make it. I searched for recipes online, and came up with the same recipe over and over again… So it must be the real copy! I made it and in literally one day, it was completely gone. Even my step-dad, who hates lemon desserts, loved it. It’s super soft and fluffy (which I like, so that proves that it’s even better than the one at Starbucks – that one isn’t fluffy), moist and delicious. It’s lemony – but not too lemony. The sides have more of a lemon taste than the middle, so that’s my favorite part. It’s much cheaper to make it to buy it, too! Like I said, I found many of the same recipe, but I got this exact one (and the picture) from Starbucks Restaurant At Home’s website!

Ferrero Rocher Nutella Cupcakes

Photo: Lick The Bowl Good

I think the title speaks for itself; pure, absolute indulgence. The idea of making them came from a friend of my dad, so I found the recipe online at lickthebowlgood.blogspot.ca – a great site for TONS of dessert recipes. The cupcakes are so chocolatey and rich; it is impossible not to take a bite out of one. I adore nutella, so when I found the recipe, I got extremely excited to test it out. It only has 3 ingredients! Topped with a cute decorative ferrero rocher, these cupcakes will have all your guests asking for the recipe!

Key Lime Pie: The Only One I’ll Make

Picture: AllRecipes

This is absolutely my favourite key lime pie recipe. I tried making the pie only once before, but it didn’t turn out so good. So a few days ago, I was at my friend’s cottage and her parents wanted her to make their favourite pie; key lime pie. Since I love baking, I volunteered to help out. It was one of the simplest, easiest recipes to do. Just mix a few ingredients, pour it in a crust, bake it and refrigerate! It tastes limey, rich and smooth, and it doesn’t fall like mush; it stays perfectly in place when cutting it. Feel free to add an extra lemon piece on top!

Fluffy Pancakes

Yup, you got me, I took this recipe from All Recipes again! I just love looking at the reviews of their recipes and seeing such good results. If a recipe gets five starts, I have to try it. This recipe caught my eye when I was browsing pancake recipes, so I tried it with one of my friends. They were really easy to make, and had only ingredients that anyone would normally have! They, like the title, were so fluffy and delicious; my friend’s family was very impressed!

I love white chocolate, so when I stumbled upon this recipe, I was very excited to try it out. After one sip, I realized, it tastes AMAZING. No joke. I absolutely love this latte! It is very rich in flavour and contains sweetness with a mix of heaven, if that’s not too cheesy :). I got it from All Recipes, where you can find some of the greatest recipes in the world!

Ingredients

1 1/2 cups milk

1 tablespoon heavy cream

1/8 teaspoon vanilla extract

1 tablespoon white sugar

1/2 cup brewed espresso

1/4 cup white chocolate chips, chopped

Directions

1. Combine the milk and cream in a saucepan, and whisk over high heat until hot and frothy. Remove from heat and stir in the vanilla and sugar.

2. Whisk together hot espresso and white chocolate chips in a mug until smooth.

3. If you are making two, pour half into another mug. Top with the frothy hot milk and stir to blend in the flavoring.

This cinnamon creation is one of my favourite fast breakfast recipes provided by Kraft. Father’s day is coming very quickly, so I suggest this for a homemade, beautiful and yummy breakfast (perhaps a breakfast in bed!). I might just make this for my dad on the 17th! I’m sure you and your father will love this easy, delicious bread like I did.

5 minute Brownie in a Mug

Photo:Babble

These 5 minute brownies will please any crowd. They taste great, and no one will believe they only took a couple of minutes to create. Add chocolate chips for a little extra flavour. The brownie may be very rich and heavy, so adding a topping like whipped cream or ice cream balances out the flavours. The recipe was altered from Squidoo, where you can find many different kinds of articles.

Absolute Best Brownies

Photo: King Arthur Flour

These are absolutely the best brownies in the world. I got the recipe from my cousin, who is a very good baker. I was excited to try it since I couldn’t find any good brownie recipes that were just plain brownie; my two other favourite brownie recipes are Kraft’s cheesecake brownies and Cocoa brownies with mini chocolate chips, posted on my blog. They are very rich and decadent, and if you add some chocolate chips, it gives it an extra chocolate twist!
