strawberries and condensed milk whipped cream pancake tacos.


Today's post is more of a recipe idea. The title is already pretty self-explanatory but I'll give you a brief run down on these pancake tacos anyway. (Somehow the word "tacos" doesn't really go with "pancakes" but "sandwiches" isn't particularly accurate either so oh well.)

chocolate chip cookie dough scones.


What would you do with extra cookie dough? Eat it raw? Sandwich it between two layers of cake? Plop small mounds of it in a pool of cheesecake batter? I can say with certainty that all of the above options are delicious ones - see chocolate chip cookie dough cake and chocolate chip cookie dough cheesecake bars; if you've not eaten raw cookie dough you're missing out! - but if you know me, I don't like predictable and I usually prefer to try a new recipe than repeat something I've already made.

double chocolate rum raisin loaf.


So as you guys know, I have a penchant for using leftover ingredients to create new ideas (in fact my creativity is maximised that way); this time I worked with some rum soaked raisins I had in surplus from the tart I made last week. I wouldn't call a chocolate cake with chocolate chips and rum raisins folded into the batter particularly innovative but I figured that it's been a while since I made chocolate cake.

triple chocolate rum raisin tart.


So I wanted to make a cake for my BFF's birthday and when I called her up to ask her what she wanted in her cake, she replied with "something coffee" and "oh I rather have a tart".
