Mkate-wa-sembe

Mkate wa Sembe (Swahili Sponge Cake)

Have you ever heard of Mkate wa Sembe (Swahili words directly translating to bread of maize meal). This bread/cake is a delicious accompaniment for tea time. It is also known as Mkate wa Mayai or a Swahili Sponge Cake.

Cookie-carrot-cake

Cookie Carrot Cake

Warm carrot cake with a hint of spice and a cup of tea, can it get any better than that? Yes, it can! My version uses crushed coconut cookies to give it that lovely hint of coconut and a different depth of flavour to the ordinary carrot cake. If you are not a fan of cookies, substitute with chopped walnuts for a classic carrot cake recipe.

No-Bake-Lemon-Cheesecake

No Bake Lemon Cheesecake

No Bake cheesecakes are so much more fun to make. This No Bake Lemon Cheesecake is a show stopper. It is so simple to make and so delicious. It has a layer of crushed biscuits, topped with a creamy cheesecake mixture and finally finished off with a tart lemon curd that gets its beautiful yellow colour from the egg yolks.

Mawe-Tatu-Cake

Mawe Tatu Cake (Cake without an Oven)

There’s just something special about cake that is baked in the jiko. This mawe tatu cake is so easy to make and the perfect recipe for those who don’t have an oven. Mawe tatu stands for 3 stones however, feel free to use sand instead of stones to bake the cake.

Black-Forest-Cake

Black Forest Cake

A classic black forest cake combines layers of rich chocolate cake with whipped cream and cherries. My version uses strawberries instead of cherries which is very common in most black forest cakes around Kenya. I suppose cherries are very hard to find, seasonal and quite expensive too.
