A little while ago, I wrote a post about my favourite iced coffees at the time. I have since drank many, more iced lattes and frappuccinos and I’m here to give you the low-down on some worth trying if you love caffeine in its icy form.
Iced latte – Bootlegger Coffee Company
Iced Flat White – Vida e Caffe
Iced Latte – Ou Meul Bakkery
Iced Latte – The Vineyard Hotel
Muggacino Frappuccino – Mugg & Bean
There are many, many more. This could go on for a while. If you like having iced coffee at home too, here is something to try…
1/2 cup of water with 1 teaspoon of coffee
1/2 -1 cup of milk
4-5 ice blocks
Chuck it all in a blender and you’re set – its a goodie. You could replace the ice with ice cream if that’s your vibe.
What are your favourite spots to grab an iced coffee?
I am in the midst of exams at the moment and decided to do a little post that’s super-yum just to chill.
Here’s a really easy waffle recipe I found and absolutely love! I poured the batter into a mini doughnut machine to make mini waffle doughnuts, but you could always just go traditional and use a waffle iron.
You will need:
2 cups all-purpose flour
1 tablespoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
2 tablespoons of brown sugar
2 beaten eggs
1 teaspoon of vanilla essence (I prefer vanilla extract)
1 1/2 cups of milk
1/4 cup of cooking oil
Combine all dry ingredients
Make a well in the centre and add the eggs, vanilla essence and milk
Add the oil and stir until everything is combined
Pour into waffle iron/ doughnut machine and bake!
These are super yummy!
I am also super-excited because I wrote a letter to Ideas magazine and they published it!
In my family, my dad is known for the amazing steak he cooks, my mom I known for her to-die-for cheesecake and I am known for my pancakes (if I may say so myself). I love everything about pancakes from making them right until eating them up. Today I’ll be sharing my pancake recipe with you.
1 ½ tablespoons of sugar
a pinch of salt
¾ cup milk
1 cup of cake flour (I’ve used self-raising flour too, and it still tastes great!)
1 teaspoon of vanilla extract (You could also use vanilla essence but extract smells way better and has a richer flavour.
Add egg and sugar in a bowl and whisk well.
Add in milk, water and vanilla extract and whisk again.
Add in flour and salt and mix until there are no lumps in the mixture.
Add butter to a hot pan and pour in mixture.
Fry until golden brown on each side and cooked all the way through.
One of my favourite books of all time is Pippi Longstocking by Astrid Lindgren. I fell in love with Pippi and the beautiful illustrations by Lauren Child when I first read the book. (Pippi loves baking too…)
