The latest trend is the mirror glaze in the cake world. A well shiny and a mirror like glaze gives any cake an elegant look and a glossy effect.Its so simple and easy to make too. Its just pouring a simple gelatinized mixture over a frozen cake.
If you want a cake with a smooth surface Ithink the mirror gaze is the best. The cake needs to be frozen. So when the gelatin hits the frozen cake it sets in no time. gelatin is the most important ingredient in a mirror glaze. Glucose syrup helps the mixture from crystallizing. Condensed milk helps the mixture to flow. White chocolate used for colouring and you can use milk or dark chocolate for brown colour.

The coconut sugar is becoming very popular these days and I thought of adding coconut sugarto cup cakes and do a recipe. The redipe is with no oil or butter too. I
This can go dry quickly and I recommend to have it the same day or when you are mixing try adding 3 tablespoons of milk to it to get the consistency right. If you dont mind adding butter try adding 75 g butter to get it well moist.
Coconut sugar is not very sweet. So if you like it very sweet try adding some brownsuar with the coconut sugar for more sweetness.
Waffles are good to serve as a dessert or as breakfast. These waffles are so soft in texture too. If you want to serve in the morning make sure to prepare the dough in the evening the day before and bring to the proof. Then punch and leave it in fridge. Make the waffles in the morning.

Adding spinach is bit tricky. It can give extra water. So make sure to leave the spinach out to drain after washing.
Chunky chocolate in every bite and the beautiful banana flavour all over makes these cafe style muffins everyones favourite. I love banana in any type of a cake. These muffins are one of my favourite muffins. You can do them in a larger batch and freeze them like I do. When ever you want them its there for you in freezer.
These are good for kids lunch boxes too. Add less sugar if you don’t mind. You can cut them in half and serve with cream or ice cream too. These are cafe style muffins and they are really large. You can do them in small muffin pans too If you do them in regular ones you will get 24 muffins or more. So divide the recipe by 2 to get a smaller batch.
