SPONGE CAKE

Ingredients

  • 20 g butter
  • 1 Tbsp milk
  • 90 g cake flour
  • 3 eggs
  • 90 g sugar
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 350 F (180 C) at least 20 minutes before. Line a 7″ cake pan with parchment paper (bottom and side). Put butter and milk In a small bowl and microwave until the butter melts. In another bowl, sift the cake flour 2 times. Set aside.
  2. In a bowl of a stand mixer, add eggs and sugar. Over a double boiler (placing the bowl over a pot with simmering water on low heat), whisk the egg mixture until it becomes lukewarm (until the sugar dissolves). Then set the bowl on the stand mixer, and whip the egg mixture until very thick (watch video to see the texture). Add vanilla and mix.
  3. Add sifted cake flour in 3 parts. Fold in the first one-third of the flour by hand with a spatula (not with the mixer). After the flour is incorporated, add the next part of flour and again fold in with the spatula. Repeat. Next, add the mixture of melted butter and milk and fold in with the spatula.
  4. Put the batter in the prepared pan. Bake for 20-25 minutes.
  5. Take the cake out from the oven and leave for 15 minutes. Finally, remove the cake from the cake pan.

Cream Cheese Stuffed Carrot Cake with Orange Glaze

Ingredients
2 1/2 cups peeled and grated carrots*

Dry Ingredients
2 cups all purpose flour
1 1/2 cups granulated sugar
1/2 cup light brown sugar, packed
1 cup pecans, finely chopped (I use my food processor)
2 teaspoons baking soda
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 tablespoon + 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon allspice
1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg

Wet ingredients
4 large eggs
3/4 cup vegetable oil
1/2 cup vanilla Greek yogurt (regular or lowfat)
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 teaspoons orange extract

Cream Cheese Filling
8 oz. cream cheese, softened
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1 large egg
1 teaspoon lemon juice
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
3 tablespoons all purpose flour

Orange Cream Cheese Glaze
4 oz. cream cheese, softened
2 tablespoons butter, softened
2 tablespoons orange juice
2 teaspoons lemon juice
1 teaspoon orange extract
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 cups powdered sugar, sifted

Optional Decorative Garnishes
roasted pecans, roughly chopped
orange zest

Instructions

Preheat the oven to 350F degrees. Butter and flour a 10” bundt cake pan (or use nonstick-spray with flour in it). Set aside.**

To make the Cream Cheese Filling, beat the cream cheese and sugar until light and creamy. Beat in remaining Filling Ingredients until smooth. Set Aside.

In a large bowl, mix all of the Dry Ingredients together. In a separate bowl, gently whisk eggs then stir in remaining Wet Ingredients just until combined. Don’t overmix.

Stir Wet Ingredients into Dry Ingredients just until moistened, then stir in 2 1/2 cups grated carrots until evenly combined (I use my clean hands to stir in the carrots).

Spoon 3 cups batter into prepared bundt cake pan. Spoon Cream Cheese Filling over batter and gently smooth, but do not touch the sides of the pan. Top with remaining batter.

Bake at 350F degrees for 45 minutes, cover with foil then reduce heat to 325 and bake an additional 25-30 minutes or until toothpick inserted near the center comes out clean. Cool in the pan for 10 minutes then transfer to a cooling rack to cool completely.

To make the Orange Cream Cheese Glaze, using an electric mixer, cream together all of the Glaze ingredients EXCEPT the powdered sugar on medium speed for 1-2 minutes or until completely smooth. Add sifted powdered sugar and beat until very smooth, scraping down sides as needed. Place the frosting in the refrigerator for 5 to 10 minutes before using.

When cake has cooled, drizzle Glaze over cake or individual servings, whisking in additional orange juice/milk if Glaze has become too thick upon standing.
Store in the refrigerator for up to 7 days.

How To Kill Sinus Infection Within Minutes With Apple Cider Vinegar!

A sinus infection, also known as sinusitis, is an inflammation of the tissue lining of the sinuses. Healthy sinuses are filled with air, but when blocked, germs can grow within and cause an infection. Symptoms of sinusitis include fevers, facial pain, and headaches while the most common causes include allergic rhinitis, common cold, deviated septum, and nasal polyps.

There are two types of sinusitis: acute and chronic. The first one typically lasts up to a month while chronic sinusitis may last 12 weeks or longer.

Viruses and bacteria which grow in the air spaces within the bones in the cheek bones, forehead, and between the eyes cause thick mucus and extreme discomfort in these areas.

While antibiotics are the most common remedy for sinusitis, they are not the best one. Namely, they often come with a wide range of side effects. On the other hand, herbal remedies step in as an ideal solution for this condition. Check out the one below!

How Apple Cider Vinegar Kills A Sinus Infection

Apple cider vinegar has numerous uses and is considered to be one of the best remedies for many conditions. It is packed with antioxidants, malic acids, vitamins, and minerals, all of which are helpful in killing bacteria. ACV binds to pathogens and helps the body flush them out more efficiently. It is effective against fungal, Candida, and viral infections, too.

To get the most of it, make sure you choose raw, unfiltered, unpasteurized, and organic apple cider vinegar, such as Bragg Organic Raw Apple Cider Vinegar.

When ingested, apple cider vinegar breaks up the mucus and clears the airways, while its antibacterial content kills off the bacteria responsible for the infection. Once the mucus is broken down, apple cider supplies the body with nutrients which boost immunity and prevent the infection from re-occurring.

Even though ACV is acidic in nature, it contains electrolytes which balances body`s pH levels and lowers body acidity. Detrimental bacteria or viruses thrive in acidic environment, which means that by creating alkaline environment, ACV prevents the microbes from multiplying.

The mixture above helps alleviate the symptoms, boost immunity, and eliminate all sinus-related problems. Check it out!

Ingredients:
½ cup of warm water
¼ cup of raw apple cider vinegar
Juice of 1 lemon wedge
1 tbsp manuka honey
½ tsp cayenne pepper

Instructions:
Mix all the ingredients in a glassSip the solution while the condition improves or gargle to accelerate your recovery.
