Lemon, Banana & Yogurt Cake!


Should i say i just gotten the hang of taking photos? I placed a table at my balcony, open up all my balcony windows panes and grills early this morning before i went to work and finally i got some really decent photos with my newly bought toys from Daiso Imm : the plates, table mat and the oh so cute forks haha. Well at least they look pretty bright to me better then all my previous pictures that i took in the night under my house lightning they looks so dull!


Anyway enough digressing, this Lemon Banana Yogurt Cake is already beckoning to me early this morning for me to eat them up, top with grape jam these cakes are divinely yummy! but i think they will even taste better warm so if you do try this warm them up first before devouring them! unlike me i gobble them up without warming them haha!

The zesty smell of lemon, fragrance of banana and yogurt makes this cake hard to resist but i still find the texture kinda of dense for my likening maybe perhaps i used oil instead of butter but then its still yummy don't worry too much!

Hey Jess, I am using sony cybershot too (a hand-down by a family friend), I also found it quite hard to use and photos not so nice...

What camera are you using now, a point-and-shoot one?

Very lovely photos, so as the cake.

In photography natural light really plays a very important part. I have been baking and cooking in the evening lately, I hate my photos without natural light. If I turn on the flashlight the photo will look like over expose. If I switch it off, the photo is not clear. Sigh.

Zoe said...

j3ss kitch3n said...

Bakertan said...

hey Jess,

your pics are getting better. nice attempt on the arrangement in this picture. Maybe you can iron the tablecloth so that it looks neater? just my 2 cents worth. I iron my table cloths sometimes.
