Maltese bread pudding- Pudina tal-hobz

This is the traditional Maltese bread pudding. Originally it was made to use up stale bread and sweetened with dried fruit. There are many variations. The main ingredients I used I  are stale bread, chopped walnuts, raisins, chopped candied cherries, cocoa powder, tangerine and orange zest and the most important ingredient some alcohol :) I used some vermouth and amaretto liquer.

Cinnamon muffins with raisins, chocolate chunks and walnuts

 So lately I'm much more into baking than cake decorating maybe cause I don't have much time. However food photography is interesting too I'm trying to learn more about it too. Still at the basics though. These cinnamon muffins are loaded with walnuts, raisins and chocolate chunks and are ideal as a teatime trea

breakfast oat cookies

Breakfast oat cookies
You could say these cookies are clean up cookies cause I ended up using all the bits and pieces of dried fruit and nuts I had in the pantry. I'm happy with the outcome though. These started up as breakfast cookies full of dried figs, raisins, brazil nuts, hazelnuts, almonds and raisins and just a little bit of cinnamon. These surely will deliver an energy boost you need in the morning :)
