Raspberry Jam

You will need-

Raspberries

Honey

Sugar (I used brown, i think both work!)

After washing the raspberries, put them on the stove for full heat. Add the sugar, adding more if needed. Let the raspberries melt into a puree kind of state. Add more sugar to stabilize the raspberries. Let it simmer for around 3-5 minutes, then add some honey. Taste and adjust as needed. Pour into a small container, and let it cool down. Transfer to fridge after 2-3 hours. The jam will be ready when you feel it’s stable enough! Mine is cooling down in the fridge right now, and is really close to being ready!

Review: Pamcakes Philadelphia!

Finally! We got to go to Pamcakes! After Sister 2 and me (sister 3) went to Spread Bagelry (which btw is DELISH, their sesame bagel with garlic veggie spread is super good!) for breakfast, it was time to go to Pamcakes! Only a block from the bagelry, it was super convenient. When we went into the store, it was very small and homey. I knew exactly what I wanted when I looked at their menu- Key Lime, Red Velvet, and Raspberry Lemonade. I figured they should have key lime and red velvet, but when i saw what cupcakes they had, they only had red velvet out of the cupcakes i wanted 😦 I got strawberry lemonade and red velvet, and 5 dollars wasn’t that bad compared to 3 dollars a cupcake. 

THE CUPCAKES-

Red Velvet- Sister 2 keeps on saying that it had white chocolate cream cheese! I will go with that then. 😀 The cupcake was super chocolaty, not too red at all, and very moist. The frosting was really sweet, most likely because of the white chocolate, with no tangyness at all from the frosting 😦 

Strawberry Lemonade- This was both Sister 2 and my favorite cupcake! The cake had a super subtle lemon flavor, but the strawberry buttercream tasted like strawberry popsicles that are super natural and delish. It was very sweet, but had lots of strawberry flavor.

Overall, I give Pamcakes a 3-3.5. Their main problem is the sweet frosting! Their cakes are nice and moist, and have a VERY nice texture. I will TOTALLY visit Pamcakes again when we go back to Philly!!!
