These Chocolate Muffins are the best! With an easy to follow recipe, these Chocolate Muffins will surely become a favorite among family and friends.    Ahh... Christmas.... You know I love you, I really do! I get excited with the Christmas rush, the Metro Manila Film Festival, the shopping, the get togethers, the parties, carols, decors, revel bars, ham, creme de fruta, food for the gods, puto bumbong, bibingka... wait, how come my list suddenly becomes all food? Anyway, getting back to my point, sometimes, no matter how much I love Christmas, can we pause Time and take a break for just an hour (or two)? Yes, just in case Time grants my wish for an hour or two of paused ... well... time, I want to make these Chocolate Muffins. Because right now, my definition of quiet, … [Read more...]

White Chocolate Fruitcake Bars

An modern take on a Christmas classic. These White Chocolate Fruitcake Bars are full of nuts and candied fruits we all love in a fruitcake with a hint of white chocolate.

A modern take on a Christmas classic, these White Chocolate Fruitcake Bars are full of dates, nuts candied fruits and raisins - what we all love in a fruitcake with a surprise hint of white chocolate.   I know, I know, I have asked you my dear Bake Happy friends if you have any recipe requests you'd like me to feature here on my blog. Rest assured I am working on it along with my editorial calendar (yeah I have one for this blog, does this make me more professional-ish? I hope so!) so stay tuned, 2015 will be one great year for Bake Happy! Before we skip to next year, there are still a few weeks left to 2014 which I'm sure no one one wants to miss! It's Christmas time already! Can you feel the cool Christmas breeze in the air? [Insert song with lyrics: Malamig ang simoy ng … [Read more...]

Easy Strawberry Cupcakes

It’s so easy to be addicted to these Strawberry Cupcakes. They’re moist, fluffy and bursting with strawberry in every bite - www.bakehappy.net

It’s so easy to be addicted to these Easy Strawberry Cupcakes. They’re moist, fluffy and bursting with strawberry in every bite.   One of the things that would really, really, really make me grab my bags and go on trip to Baguio - yup, you guessed right! Strawberries! Fresh, juicy and sweet, I just love strawberries! Fortunately, there are fresh strawberries available here in Manila, Driscoll's are sometimes available in Rustan's or Landmark or, strawberries from Baguio are sometimes sold in the Salcedo Saturday Market. Unfortunately, it's quite pricey, especially Driscoll's, so it's a good thing there is an alternative. There's a canned strawberry pie filling available (Comstock) that's found in major groceries or in baking supplies stores like Sweetcraft in Mandaluyong or … [Read more...]

Revel Bars Recipe

03 - Revel Bars

I love this Revel Bars Recipe because it’s chewy, nutty and screams Christmas. Make these once and, Christmas or no Christmas, you will surely make these again and again and again.   Ahh... Revel Bars... together with Food for the Gods and Ooey Gooey Brownies, they make the trio of Christmas gift giving treats (at least in my opinion). Though I must admit, similar to blondies,  it was only when I started working that I got acquainted with Food for the Gods and Revel Bars. And I felt I missed one half of my life. Just kidding. I think I more than made up for it with all the Revel Bars and Food for the Gods I ate the past few years. No biggie. So what are Revel Bars exactly? They are these delicious concoction of moist, chewy and buttery oatmeal goodness with creamy … [Read more...]

Easy Carrot Cupcakes Recipe

14 - Carrot Cupcakes

This easy carrot cupcakes recipe is simply amazing! Pair the cupcakes with cream cheese frosting and you'll definitely have a keeper!   I know, I know. Almost all the recipes that are in my Aunty Fely's old merit notebook are amazing. I simply can't choose which one is my favorite. Including this recipe. In her notebook, the recipe is actually for a cake but this time I made it into cupcakes and I'm telling you, this is simply divine. I've actually posted this recipe  here on my blog before but unfortunately, I wasn't able to count how much it makes (plus I wanted to have new nicer pictures to go with the recipes) so indulge me as I am re-doing it again. Some carrot cake (or cupcake) recipes call for raisins, some even pineapple chunks but this recipe is pure, … [Read more...]
