Banana Chocolate Cake

I just stepped into the house when i smell something sweet from my kitchen. It was banana that i bought 4 days ago, before i left for long weekend in the mountain with some friends. For me, banana is the best fruit for baking and it always satisfying. I love combination of banana + chocolate. Wonder why no one sell chocolate with banana flavor out there.

Caramel Flan

Hey... i'm back after 2 long weeks without update. I've been a little busy helping a friend to design her new online shop and also doing some label and banner design, haven't done with it up until now.
It is not summer yet but the weather is terribly hot here, the heatwave makes me feel exhausted, not wanting to do anything and all i want is water and something to cool down. I've been bookmarked this recipe since few weeks back, and only got the mood to do it today. The flan turned to be as smooth as it looks, with slightly sticky caramel syrup and it really cooled my evening off.
