Inspired by the sticky date pudding, this Sticky Mango Cake gives a local twist to the classic dessert by making use of dried Philippine mangoes.

This crazy situation the world is in right now feels like a bad dream. It would be nice if you woke up one morning and realized that was the case. The world as we knew it just a week ago has stopped being the same, and it has quite literally just stopped. Societies across the globe have shut down, governments are on overdrive, and many have turned to extreme measures such as lockdowns and “community quarantines”. To most people, the uncertainty of when this situation would end is even scarier than the virus itself. The feeling of helplessness is so thick, all you can do is stay at home and pray. 

I thought about whether or not I should post or write anything on the blog until this time has passed, but then I figured, wouldn’t now be the perfect time to cheer people up with a delicious treat? Many of us suddenly found some extra time in our hands after all. This is just one aspect for me though.

To be honest, I lost a bit of energy to do anything when our country entered its lockdown phase. The anxiety was very real at first. Nonetheless, I sat in front of my computer to check my backlogs, and this Sticky Mango Cake practically jumped out at me. It’s a recipe that is appropriate for this moment in time, because it’s something that I feel shows my solidarity with my country during this difficult time. (I have a lot of complaints about how all this was handled by our government, but I do want us all to get through this in one piece.)

I’ve been excited to share this Coffee Tres Leches Cake recipe for a while now, but between the burnout I had to conquer and issues with my Internet, I decided to push it back and push it back… Until weeks turned into months! I finally sat down and edited the video of my making this though, and while it’s not one of my best videos for sure, my excitement won over.

If you’ve never met Chocolate Madeleines before, then I suggest you get acquainted. These little cakes are as pretty as they are delicious, and having one is a good way to have your cake if you’re watching your portions. Granted, you keep the other madeleines out of sight haha!

As if it wasn’t enough that the madeleines are a pretty chocolatey seashell, that shiny coat of hardened chocolate makes it ten times more tempting somehow. Or maybe it’s just that the eating mood is harder to resist around this season. It would be terrible of me to tell you to resist, especially when it comes to these Chocolate Madeleines.

For a long time now, whenever I think about buying condensed or evaporated milk in the supermarket, my mind immediately conjures up images of that iconic Alaska can. Alaska’s 40-year presence in the market speaks volumes in itself, but the fact remains that you can only enjoy that kind of longevity if you make good products.

Both the Alaska Classic Sweetened Condensed Milk and Evaporated Filled Milk carry premium quality that uplifts the overall flavor of a dish, be it something sweet or savory. This is because it has a great balance of sweet, creamy, and milky. No wonder it’s the leading filled milk brand in the Philippines.
