Madeleines sind so eine heikle Sache. Ich liebe sie. Und sie sind einfach zu machen. Sie sind auch sehr lecker. Aber meistens nur am Backtag, vielleicht noch am Tag danach. Anschließend sind sie trocken, hart, einfach nicht mehr lecker. Mein Gebäck sollte sich aber schon ein paar Tage halten. Das erwarte ich schlicht und einfach. Ich backe nicht nur für einen Tag (außer es kommen natürlich Gäste). Ich war schon […]

Update: Für das deutsche Rezept nach unten scrollen! I never were really fond of shortbread. Scottish or not. We didn’t even tried some, as we were in Scotland last year. We just brought some home as a gift. I ate some of the gift myself. But I’m not ashamed, since it revealed the tastiness of shortbread to me. Scottish shortbread. I don’t know how Irish tastes or other. So I’m […]

Update: Für das deutsche Rezept nach unten scrollen! The October 2010 Daring Bakers challenge was hosted by Lori of Butter Me Up. Lori chose to challenge DBers to make doughnuts. She used several sources for her recipes including Alton Brown, Nancy Silverton, Kate Neumann and Epicurious. The challenge were doughnuts.

We had a party at the weekend. Celebrating our new apartment and my 25th. Lots of people, lots of food. Lots of fun! Since one guest has celiac disease and I didn’t wanted to make everything special, a lot of the food was gluten-free. Also it was a good opportunity to make donuts. We love them, but it isn’t worth the work for only two people. But for 20. So […]

Update: Für das deutsche Rezept nach unten scrollen! When I remember of red currants, I think of me as a child, standing in front of the red currant bushes in the garden of my relatives in Coburg. Just plucking and nibbling one after the other with pleasure. Really loved that time of year, since I’m still loving it today. And I’m still in love with red currants. Unfortunately we don’t […]

Update: Für das deutsche Rezept nach unten scrollen! Since on the 20. March was Macaron Day I decided to show you my latest accomplishment in macarons. Yes, there exists a special day for macarons! In Paris are special shops, that sell macarons all day long and on macarons day you can get some free! Unfortunately I never had the chance to be there (on macarons day or sometime else). As […]

Update: Für das deutsche Rezept nach unten scrollen! This month challenge for the Daring Bakers were French Macarons. The 2009 October Daring Bakers’ challenge was brought to us by Ami S. She chose macarons from Claudia Fleming’s The Last Course: The Desserts of Gramercy Tavern as the challenge recipe. I was a bit scared, because I tried macarons some weeks ago the first time and they went totally wrong. The […]
