• Assalaamu alaykum! My name's Ameera - the cake-o-holic who writes this blog.

    I love baking when I have some time off to myself. For me, it's a creative art... with lots of room to experiment. I also find it to be a simple but great way to express your love for someone... a cousin, an aunt, a friend... take along a nice Apple cake or Banana muffins and they'll appreciate all the care that you put into making it for them.

    I also like sharing my recipes or anything helpful I've learned along the way so here's a collection up for you. Have a look around, try what catches your eye and let me know how it went! :) Meanwhile, I'll try to keep updating this place with whatever new I try, Insha'Allah.

For now, try this one, you’ll love … Continue reading
