Baked: Agbalumo Upside Down Carrot Cake

by Kitchen Butterflyon March 16, 2016
This is my second take on an agbalumo carrot cake. Because of the zobo pineapple upside down cake, this came to mind. I used macerated agbalumo – flesh tossed in sugar and left to sit overnight till the sugar has drawn out a lot of the liquid and somewhat ‘dehydrated’ the fruit. I loved the […]

Quick & Easy: Weeknight Dinner of Sausage & Carrot Cannelloni

by Kitchen Butterflyon March 10, 2016
This recipe was inspired by @recipetins’s Baked Spinach & Ricotta Rotolo.  That morning, I saw it on Instagram on my way to work – I couldn’t stop thinking, dreaming, wishing. As soon as I got home that Friday night, I brought out my pack of Cannelloni and some Sugo which I almost always have in the […]

Zobo-Pineapple Upsidedown Cake

by Kitchen Butterflyon February 23, 2016
This came together in a flash. A tweet about this cake, being out shopping with friends to cook for made this happen. The instant I saw the blueberry-pineapple upside down cake, I said to myself ‘this would be perfect with zobo’. For a few months now, I’ve been poaching blueberries in sweetened zobo so I know […]

The Art of the Quickbread

by Kitchen Butterflyon July 25, 2015
Banana bread? Cornbread? Pumpkin bread? Muffins? Irish Soda bread?  Scones? Yep, you thought it right – all quick breads. There are arguments aplenty. What defines quick breads? Well, all the quick breads I know are yeast-free, using a classic base-acid combination, aka baking soda and yogurt/ buttermilk/ acidulated dairy to produce the rise, I like to […]

Agbalumo Cream Puffs

by Kitchen Butterflyon July 24, 2015
Once the cream puffs were cool, I whipped up some cream, stuffed and drizzled chocolate over the top. I had some beautiful syrup from macerating Agbalumo :), the same one that formed the base of our Agbalu’lade. I folded the agbalumo syrup into the whipped cream. By then, the choux buns were cool and ready to be […]

Pretty in Some Pink – Coconut & Lime Cake

by Kitchen Butterflyon May 14, 2015
Which wasn’t very coconutty to be honest. Thing was, I wanted to make a cake without using dairy…and so replaced the yogurt with coconut cream. Except the beautiful cream with its sweet fragrance didn’t bake itself complete with the fragrance. I’m getting increasingly annoyed with coconut milk. I find the fragrance and flavour disappear in baked […]
