Lamb moussaka with chocolate lava cake

There was some minced lamb left and I wasn't sure what to use it for. I love eating lamb kebab but I felt I wanted to try something new and finally I decided on making this lamb moussaka. Making it was not that difficult, and I decided to make chocolate lava cake for dessert. 

I made the Mediterranean version, and topped it with white sauce. It reminded me of lasagna minus the pasta sheets. The best part about this lamb moussaka is that it is filling and filled with complete nutrients.

The chocolate lava cake was good too. I substituted the white sugar to brown sugar, and it tasted marvelous.

Lamb moussaka recipe

1 cup minced lamb (can be bought at Giant's)
1 cup canned tomato paste
1 cup mushroom
2 large tomatoes, cut into 8 pieces
Mixed herbs
Salt and pepper
1 large eggplant, thinly sliced
2 Potatoes, thinly sliced
1 clove garlic, crushed
1 onion, finely diced
1 tablespoon olive oil
2 tablespoon cornstarch

1/2 cup yogurt
2 eggs
1/2 cup soft cheese (I used cream cheese)
Grated cheddar or parmesan

1. Preheat oven to 180 degrees Celcius. Put salt on the eggplants to remove the bitterness, allow to sit for 10 minutes, wash and drain. 
2. Heat the olive oil and sauteed garlic and onion until tender. Combine the minced lamb and cook until brown. Combine mushroom, canned tomato paste, tomatoes, mixed herbs, salt and pepper and cook on medium heat until the sauce becomes thick. Combine the sauce with cornstarch mixed with water to thicken the sauce. Set aside
3. Put half of the sauce in the cooking dish and arrange the eggplant on it. Cover the eggplant with the remaining sauce and topped it with potato slices. Mixed up yogurt, eggs and soft cheese and put on the potato layer. Topped it with graded cheese and bake for 40 minutes or until brown.

Matcha with white chocolate marble cake and creamy vanilla frosting

I remembered my conversation with my sister in Japan. It has been a custom in Japan for females to give sweets to males during Valentine's day thus she decided to make matcha (green tea) cake with white chocolate marble cake for her male lab mates a day before Valentine's day (she called it Masrina's day :) )

I am a matcha lover and I will try anything with matcha flavor. This cake has been in my baking to-do list that I finally gave it a try last week. I topped the cake with creamy vanilla frosting, and the cake tasted sooo good.

The green tea taste was not overwhelming, and the white chocolate part did complement the green tea part. Another yummy cake that goes to my favorite list.

Tres leches (three milk) cake - A surprising treat

I remembered reading Fakhirah's and Faris's comment on Samira Facebook that they missed her tres leches cake. Samira, half Iranian and half Mexican, has been brought up appreciating both cultures and food,  is a food junkie like me. If there is a food that she likes, the food definitely tastes good.   I was curios about the taste of  tres leches cake (from Spanish means three milk cake) that I tried making it myself.  

It was really yummy, and reminds me of Tiramisu minus the lady finger biscuit and mascarpone cheese. The cake is topped with whipped cream and dusted with semisweet cocoa powder. The cake itself is dry, but after combinig it with milks, the cake tasted really good.

It is best served chilled. Another cake that goes to my favorite list :)

Red velvet cake with creamy vanilla frosting

It was my first time celebrating his birthday that I decided to bake red velvet cake for his surprise birthday party. My husband was oblivious and totally absorbed with his chess game while I was happily mixing the cake mixture and the yummy creamy vanilla frosting.

I was really eager to use the new recipe that I found, and I wasn't disappointed with the result. The cake was really moist and flavorful and the frosting was creamy and not sweet, just the way I like it. 

Surprisingly, he loved it as well. Who would have thought my husband who doesn't have sweet tooth prefer this cake than his favorite Marmokuchen (German for marble cake)
