Hi, I'm DeAnna Grant AKA The Superbaker well known for my baking, especially cakes and puddings. I'm also a wife and mother of 3 teenagers, strapping twin sons and a daughter, who love rounding off their dinner with one of my sweet yummy sponge puddings!
I am also a writer and have penned a few food articles on Suite101.
My favorite things to cook
I love baking and trying out different flavors and combinations for cakes and puddings.
I have a thing about making the lightest sponge cake and have competed with friends. Not sounding my own trumpet but my sponge is always the winner! Apart from baking I also enjoy cooking meals from a variety of cultures, Caribbean, Indian, Chinese, Mexican, etc.
My favorite family cooking traditions
I come from a mixed Caribbean heritage but was born and grew up in England, so family cooking traditions were a mixture of good old fashioned English breakfast of fried eggs, bacon, sausage, tomatoes,baked beans and toast to a Caribbean staple of seasoned salt fish, fried plaintain and fried dumplings oozing tons of flavor!
My cooking triumphs
Baking a black rum wedding cake, icing and decorating it in a Caribbean theme, with a palm tree as a center piece and figurines of my two English friends who got married in St Lucia.
My cooking tragedies
Not a tradgedy as such but I am still trying to master making a light, fluffy roti.
