baking makes me feel safer. feel like I'm at home even when I'm thousands miles away from it. the smell of fresh bread reminds me of my childhood. chocolate biscuits bring me memories about the sleepover with my girlfriends when we were only sixteen. it was a magnificent night full of laughs and dancing. the mille-feuille is always baked by my mom on my birthday even if I don't celebrate with my family. they eat it while talking with me through facetime, we eat it together being on the different sides of the world. the cheesecake reminds me the holidays spent with my grandmother and apple pie was the first pie ever prepared by me only.
I love baking. love going on the local market to buy fresh fruits, love my measuring cups and baking pans, love mixing up the ingredients with the help of whisk, love the sound of the oven which warns to turn it off.
I love baking because it unties people. tea parties are not complete without delicious biscuits. the phone talks with your aunt are made in order to find out the recipe of honey pie. the cake which you prepare as a present on your best friend's birthday. banana bread is shared with my neighbours after the night I spent on the kitchen because I couldn't fall asleep. many, many, many occasions filled with laughter, joy, tears (both happy and bitter), deep conversations and silly memories.
baking feels like home. home which can be brought with me in any place I want to.
don't be afraid of baking! don't push yourself in order to get the results just like on the picture from Pinterest. don't compete with anybody who's better than you. try new recipes, add different ingredients, listen to your favourite music, be the kitchen witch! and you won't regret any second spent on the kitchen! biscuits, cakes, pies will be only better with each attempt, trust me! just have fun!
and become the member of our baking cult!

~ Mini Apple Pies ~
Here is an easy pie recipe I love to make during autumn and winter time! It's very easy and quick and perfect to enjoy with some hot cocoa or tea or to gift to family and friends! It's a bit higher in calories, but they really fill you up. ♥
162 calories | 2g Protein | 7g Fats | 27g Carbs per serving (makes 6)
Time needed: 1 hour roughly
What you need
1 package puff pastry
3-4 tbsp cinnamon
3 tbsp brown sugar
2 packages vanilla sugar (optional)
2 tbsp butter
1 egg (optional)
1. Preheat oven to 180°C | 356°F. Wash apples well and cut them into cubes.
2. In a bowl, mix the apples with cinnamon and sugar. Make sure the apples are well covered.
3. Heat butter in a pot. Cook apples for about 5 minutes or until they are soft enough for you.
4. Take out the pastry and brush it over with the juice from the apples, then cut it into squares. With a spoon, fill one triangle of the square with the apples, then overlap it with the other triangle and use a fork to seal the ends and brush the top with the egg.
5. Bake for 20-25 minutes.
Tip: You can also add Christmas seasoning or fill it with pumpkin instead of apples! If you don't have puffy pastry at hand, you can make your own!
Bon Appétit! ♥

A cake recipe for longevity of friendship.
This is my personal recipe for a very moist boozy tropical bundt cake. Sharing this cake with friends promotes luck and longevity of friendship. As summer winds down, I wanted to share this recipe with the lovely people of Witchblr so you all have a chance to bake it during it’s perfect season!
*This recipe uses alcohol for soaking, you can substitute with extra pineapple and lemon juice or strawberry juice.
1/2 cup softened butter or vegan substitute. (I always use vegan sub)
1/2 cup light brown sugar.
1/2 cup white sugar.
3 large eggs room temperature.
1 Tablespoon of pure vanilla extract.
1 8 ounce can of crushed or chunk pineapple in 100% juice.
*1 cup buttermilk or to make vegan combine a little under a cup of Oat milk with 1/4 cup lemon juice and let sit for 10 minutes to curdle.
* If using buttermilk add 1/4 cup lemon juice to liquids.
3 cups all purpose flour.
1 Tablespoon baking powder.
1 Tablespoon baking soda.
1/2 Teaspoon salt.
1 Teaspoon ground ginger.
For soaking and serving
100% Natural local honey for drizzling.
A tablespoon lemon juice.
(optional) A few shots of complimentary alcohol ( I am fond of using Strawberry Pineapple Vodka. Flavored rum would work well too.)
If not using alcohol try using fruit juice!
Optional, add lemon zest!
Baking the cake
Remember when doing any kind of crafting in magic it’s important to focus on your intent. If you aren’t in a positive frame of mind, it’s best to save this cake for another day.
Saying your intentions out loud may have stronger effect. Fill that cake with magic and love!!!
Step 1 - Throw on some music that makes you happy!!! (totally optional)
Step 2 - PreHeat oven to 350 degrees fahrenheit and don’t forget to grease your bundt pan!
Beat sugar, eggs and vanilla well with a stand or hand mixer until well combined. Add butter and whip for a few minutes. Pour buttermilk, Lemon juice (if needed) and 8oz of crushed or chunk pineapple to the bowl. Mix until just combined.
In a separate bowl, combine the flour, baking powder, baking soda, ginger and salt. Whisk together well, sifting if necessary.
Is your bundt pan greased?
Good! I’m so proud of you for remembering! Make sure that oven is preheated too!! When we combine these mixtures this cake is going straight in the oven!
In a large bowl combine the liquid and dry ingredients until just combined.
Pour carefully into your greased bundt pan, scraping the sides of the bowl with a silicone spatula to get all that good batter up! Think of the new happy memories you’ll soon be making with your friends when you share this cake.
Pop that baby straight in the oven!!
Place cake on a middle rack and turn the cake if you open the oven to check it. Bake for 45 minutes or until a toothpick comes out almost clean. If the top of your cake starts to burn cover it with tin foil. I have not encountered this issue but every oven is different.
When the cake is cooled and removed from the pan, gather your soaking liquids. Poke a few small holes in the top of the cake. slowly and evenly pour your liquids over the cake. Do not drown your cake please!! If it starts to pool too much at the bottom hold off. You can always add more liquid later.
Coat the cake with a thin layer of drizzled honey. This cake soaks up that honey! So don’t be afraid to be a little heavy handed.
Enjoy with beloved friends
Serve with whipped cream and let the good times roll.
✨Substitute whatever you'd like except the lemon and pineapple. These are the magic representatives in this recipe. ✨
Thanks for reading!!! If you have issues with the recipe at all feel free to reach out! Did you add something different? Let me know how you changed it and how it turned out!

these days i’ve been experimenting with recipes of pastries, muffins, cakes, cookies, and I’ve found out that i have so many amazing recipes! if you want I can share them with you!

Okay no one up asked for this but I’m annoyed after taking a photo of said recipe for @wishingtobeinadifferentuniverse but I can’t be bothered to go back upstairs to retake photo
Aka a recipe my family and I have been using from the offical “Hershey’s Recipe Book”
1 Cup of sugar
1/2 Cup of Flour
1/3 Cup of Hershey’s Cocoa Powder
1/4 teaspoon of baking powder
1/4 teaspoon of salt
1/2 cup of melted butter or oil
1/2 teaspoon of vanilla extract (optional)
Hershey’s chocolate syrup (my special “secret” ingredient)
Y’all get ready- this is so easy
Preheat oven to 350F
Mix all the dry ingredients in a bowl
Add and mix all the wet ingredients with the dry ingredients
Once all mixed, add the secret ingredient
The texture should be pretty thick initially, but add just enough Hershey syrup that it’s more creamy and soft but Yknow.. still thick like batter
I typically measure it out by just putting a thin layer of the syrup over the batter then mix it in
The more you add, the more fudge-y it’ll be
Grease your baking pan with your preference! I use coconut cooking spray
Put in the oven for about 30-35 minutes
Bakers notes: Im not sure how accurate the baking time amount is or if it’s good cause I usually just wait until I can smell the brownies, and test it using a toothpick. If it comes out clean, I take it out.

1 1/4 cup oat flour (just ground the oats on the blender, food processor or Nutribullet)
5 tsp natural granulated sugar such as coconut sugar
1/4 tsp sea salt
1 tsp baking powder
2 Tbsp coconut oil melted before measured
1 tsp vanilla
3-5 Tbsp tepid water
CINNAMON SUGAR COATING:
4 tsp natural granulated sugar
1 tsp cinnamon
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
Mix the dry ingredients together (flour, sugar, salt, and baking powder).
Mix the wet ingredients into the dry, adding water only as needed. The batter should be moist, but not sticky.
Let the dough sit for a few minutes to allow the oats to absorb some of the moisture.
Mix the sugar and cinnamon together on a plate.
Pinch off pieces of dough (10 total) and form each piece into a ball.
Roll each ball in the cinnamon/sugar mix until lightly coated on all sides.
Press down on each ball to form a cookie shape.
Place all of the coated cookies onto a parchment paper-lined baking sheet.
Bake for 10 minutes.
Let cool for five minutes on the baking sheet.
NOTE: I usually add a pinch of chile powder for that extra Mexico taste—
okay people sending me baking recipes is now my new favourite thing!! 💜 I can't believe I'd never heard of these before?!
it's my day off and I literally spent my morning jamming to bbc radio 1 and baking these! they ain't perfect but they taste good and that's all that matters, right? 😅

56 calories | 1,6g Protein | 1g Fat | 11g Carbs per cookie (makes 7)
Time: 20 minutes
What you need:
~ 75g oats

~ 1/2 tsp Cinnamon
~ Sweetener to your liking
~ Vanilla extract
1. Mash the banana with a fork and mix it with the oats, cinnamon, vanilla and as much sweetener as you feel best.

✨No Yeast Sticky Bun Recipe✨
A versatile sticky bun recipe that you can infuse with virtually any type of magic property!
A couple years ago I stumbled upon a base no yeast roll recipe and tweaked it to make it healthier and more allergy friendly. I will share with you a few magic associated filling and icings to go with it as well!
2 cups all purpose flour unbleached (Can be substituted with all purpose gluten free baking flour).
4 TableSpoons Coconut Sugar. (Reserve 2 for filling)
4 Teaspoons baking powder.
1 Teaspoon baking soda.
1 Teaspoon Salt.
4 Tablespoons butter softened not melted. (Reserve 1 tablespoon for filling) (I always use a vegan butter substitute meant for baking)
3/4 cup Dairy free milk mixed with 1 tablespoon Lemon juice. (Oat milk is now my all time favorite for baking!)
2 Teaspoons vanilla extract.
2 cups powdered sugar.
2 Tablespoons Dairy free milk.
BONUS choose from a list of flavor additives below!
Success - Ground Cinnamon, ground Cloves, Vanilla bean paste and 2 tablespoons of coconut sugar, 1 tablespoon softened butter. (For this filling add vanilla extract to your icing!)
Peace & Friendship - Lemon zest, 2 teaspoons lemon juice, Finely ground peppermint leaves, 2 Tablespoons of coconut sugar, 1 tablespoon softened butter. (For this filling add lavender to your icing!)
Protection - Raspberry jam, a sprinkle corn starch, Vanilla bean paste, a sprinkling of rosemary, 2 table spoons coconut sugar, 1 tablespoon softened butter.
Mix your filling into a paste and reserve until dough is ready to be coated.
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees fahrenheit!
In a large bowl mix together flour, 2 table spoons sugar, baking powder and salt. Cut in 3 table spoons softened butter with your hands then stir in milk to form a soft dough. (This is a sticky dough so don’t be alarmed! You can always add a little more flour to the mix if it's too sticky still and Pro tip, use a mix of flour and corn starch on your hands to keep it from sticking!) On a lightly floured surface roll out the dough into a rectangle about 1/4 inches thick. Spread the filling of your choice over the top. Carefully roll the dough into a tube place in the freezer for a few minutes to help keep shape. Coat a sharp knife in flour and cornstarch, cut rolls out about an inch in thickness. If they begin to loose shape stick them back in the freezer until they hold better.
In a well greased glass pie pan or square pan, place your rolls side by side.
Bake for 20-30 minutes or until golden.
While baking whisk together milk and powdered sugar (etc.) until smooth.
Serve warm with a generous glaze!

Banana Bread Baked Oatmeal
I love oats however I hate porridge-style oatmeal so baked oatmeal is a favorite of mine. It’s really delicious and is honestly a little cake-like. It’s great for getting a little bit of protein in at the start of the day. I found this recipe on instagram and the first time I made it I thought it was too sweet so I halved the maple syrup and vanilla but it depends a little on the type of maple syrup you’re using and what you like.
1/2 cup oat flour or 1/4 cup oats plus 1/4 cup flour
1 banana, mashed
1 tbsp maple syrup
1/2 tbsp baking powder
pinch of salt
1/4 tsp vanilla
2 tbsp milk
These are really easy to make. First mash the banana, then add the maple syrup, vanilla, and milk to it and mix. Then add the flour, baking powder and salt on top and mix them in. I then actually added around a third of a banana because I wanted some chunks of banana in mine so I mashed it a little into the mix, but you can do whatever you like. Add your chocolate chips last before pouring it into some ovenproof dish, I used two little ramekins. Bake at 400F / 204C for 25 minutes before it’s all ready for you to enjoy.
I really loved this and it’s very easy to add something and alter the recipe, like adding some cinnamon or putting in blueberries.

FROM SCRATCH BROWNIES
total time: 30-35 minutes
these are my favorite brownies i’ve ever made. they’re delectable, soft, and thick. 8x8 is the best pan size for them as they’re very thick but light, and absolutely delicious. the optional chocolate chips just make them even gooier.
¼ tsp salt (leave out if using salted butter)
½ cup unsweetened cocoa
½ cup melted butter (or 1 stick) (or vegan butter to make them dairy free & vegan)
½ cup flour
1 cup sugar see note
1 teaspoon vanilla
2 large eggs
OPTIONAL: nuts, raisins, chocolate chips, powdered sugar
preheat oven to 350°F.
grease an 8x8 square pan (or line with foil) and set aside.
combine melted butter, sugar, and cocoa in a medium bowl, and stir until fully dissolved.
add eggs and vanilla and stir until well combined.
you can also do this in a separate bowl and combined when mixed.
mix flour and salt until fully combined.
spread in pan and bake for 22-25 minutes (or until the center is slightly set).
and that’s it! simple as that! these come out absolutely delectable. they’re sweet and crumbly, and make as a perfect quick snack.
hope you enjoy :)

As the quarantine continues many people have taken up hobbies like baking! This is great! Baking is a joy of mine, and I have a HUGE piece of advice
Always bake your flour in no bake recipes!
Bake your flour in the oven at 350 degrees for about five ish minutes.
Why? Because raw flour contains bacteria like ecoli. All flour should be baked, not just cheap brands or off brands.
You don't wanna get sick right now guys, but have fun c:

Ingredients for the dough :
500 g flour
45 g starch
1 package of dry yeast
1 tbsp powdered sugar
1 package of vanilla sugar
pinch of salt
300 ml of room temperature milk
Ingredients for the filling :
70 g of soft butter
150 g brown cane sugar
2,5 tsp of cinnamon
50 g Double Cream Cheese
100 g powered sugar
Mix all dry ingredients in a bowl, make a hollow in the middle and add the egg and milk into it -
Use your hands to combine the ingredients, it’ll be sticky at first but you have to keep kneading until you get a soft dough. I recommend kneading on a flat surface because it usually doesn’t work so well in the bowl. You should knead for at least 5 min.
Shape the dough into a ball and put it back into your bowl, cover it up and let it rise in a warm place for at least an hour.
Mix the brown cane sugar and cinnamon, then use 3/4 of that and mix it with your soft butter. You should get a dark brown cream with thick consistency. We’ll spread that later on our dough - and sprinkle the left over sugar-cinnamon mixture on top.
After an hour your dough should have risen to double its size !
Take it out of the bowl and roll it out into a rectangular shape.
Spread your butter-sugar-cinnamon mixture evenly until everything is covered. Sprinkle the sugar/cinnamon (that you’ve left) on top of that.
Now you can either roll that up tightly and then cut it into slices *or* you leave the dough as it is, cut stripes (around 4 cm) and then roll them up individually ! That way your cinnamon rolls will have more dimension :)
Grease your baking dish and put your cinnamon rolls next to each other (make sure to leave some space)
Cover them up and let them rise in a warm place for another hour ! This step is essential, don’t skip it.
An hour has passed and the cinnamon rolls are ready to go into the *preheated* oven ! Bake for 25 min at 190° C 🌡
After 25 minutes I turn the heat off and start preparing the cream cheese frosting ! This is by far the easiest step : just take a fork and mix your double cream cheese and powdered sugar, it combines very well ! The texture shouldn’t be too runny nor too thick - just creamy (if it’s too liquid add more powdered sugar / if too thick just more cream cheese or a teaspoon of milk — but that shouldn’t happen) Spread your cream cheese frosting on the hot cinnamon rolls and enjoy !! <3 I recommend eating them when they’re still warm

Can I be greedy and ask about Northern Wind but also this cookbook, what is one of your favorite foodstuffs in it? (That is so cool you are doing that!!)
No worries! Fair warning I literally have like, a few sentences written for Northern Wind, so it’s VERY much a WIP, haha.
Deacon could feel it before he could see it. Bright morning sun spilled through tattered curtains, but not enough to wash the chill from the room. That wasn’t what woke him up, though. No, that honor went to a pair of icy hands that slipped around his waist, bursting the warm little bubble he had under the pile of quilts.
“I’m cold.” Whisper mumbled into his shoulder, still half asleep. Well, at least the rest of her didn’t feel like an icicle.
“Yeah, well I wasn’t until now.” He didn’t move out of her hold though, just grasped her hands with his own, trying to warm them up with something less sensitive than his stomach.
And here’s my favorite “I’m Broke As Hell” cake recipe, it’s really good!
Coffee Depression Cake (like the time period, not mood state lol)
1.5 – 2 cups brewed coffee
2 tsp vanilla extract
1.5 cups flour
2tsp baking powder
1/3 cups sugar
¼ cup fine ground coffee beans
1/3 cups vegetable oil
¼ cup powdered sugar (opt.)
Sift flour and baking powder together, followed by sugar and ground beans. In a separate bowl, mix water and oil, and slowly add dry ingredients, mix well. Pour mixture into greased cake pan and bake at 350 for 45 minutes. Gently remove from pan and dust with powdered sugar.

My attempt at a kinder bueno brownie 😁 What do you think? To make it I used a blondie brownie recipe and I mixed Nutella in with the mixture. I then added broken up pieces of kinder bueno into the mixture too and baked it in the oven. Once it was done I drizzled it with more Nutella and topped it off with some white chocolate chips as well as some more kinder bueno bars. I think it turned out pretty well!! 😋
