Did you know for every recipes/cakes that I post here was something that I baked at least a couple of months back? Hehe. Sorry for the almost a month silence. I just hope I won't stop posting here :)
Lately, I always have over-rippen bananas on my kitchen counter (which reminds me I still have few in the fridge) so one day I decided to bake this, just to avoid the guilt of throwing actively grown molded-bananas. And I know this was a wise decision (because it has to be).
A lot of friends did asked me, "Why do you like baking so much?", "Where did you learned?". The truth? I bake because I love eating all the sweet stuff. And I couldn't stop eating it. It has become an addiction, at least once a week, I will treat myself, almost slathering my body with the fattening creams.
And then one day I've decided to start baking. Which was a good thing at first, because I could try as many recipes that I was craving for. But the downside of it was you'd know the exact amount of fat & sugar that accumulated in your blood vessels and underneath your skin.
And then it was not that fun anymore.
But I won't stop. Because this is where my passion is (besides dancing).
