Regularly I long for cake, but we don’t consume much cake in a 2-person household. Also a freshly baked cake tastes much better, then one that gets stale after days on the counter. So I longed for cake and had some eggnog left, so I decided to give cakes in jars finally a try! Now I cannot imagine anything more convenient! Instead of using a large baking pan you use […]

Don’t you hunger for cookies every now and then? But then baking them immediately is another thing. I have the solution for this problem: this giant cookie is stirred together in a pinch! And don’t tell me you never longed for a huge cookie? This skillet cookie is more like a cookie cake. It tastes like a chocolate chip cookie, but is more mellow in general, but crispy on the […]

This easy fluffy cheesecake with strawberries and elderflower syrup is a wonderful summer refreshment when it is hot! I prefer to bake the bottom shortly, but when it is too hot for turning on the oven, you can also skip that part and you can make a whole no-bake cheesecake. Amazing, isn’t it! You only need some tasty strawberries and some elderflower syrup. Later in summer you could also use […]

Last year in October I was at Neue Heimat in Berlin. There was a small street food market with live music. It was really beautiful and they had some interesting food to sample. Main dishes were quite boring, but the snacks and the cocktails were exciting! They had a stall with cocktails made with tea, which were awesome and a stall with raw food, which had amazing raw chocolate brownies! […]

Autumn is here and therefore it’s time again to cuddle up, drink warm tea and cook with pumpkins, apples, pears and quinces! In summer I avoid chocolate because of the heat, but now it’s time again to make delicious stuff with chocolate. So I recommend you a blanket, a good book, a warm cup of tea and a slice of this scrumptious creamy chocolate tart. I discovered this recipe in […]

Finally it’s rhubarb time again! First thing I made with the first rhubarb was my beloved rhubarb crumble, but then I wanted to make something new and different. But that’s not so easy! Everything was already known to me and the recipes were all so similar! And I already had tart, cake and muffins with rhubarb on the blog. So Saveurs link to its best rhubarb recipes just came right! […]

If you are lucky you might get some late blackberries and peaches for this delicious gluten-free crumble. Unfortunately I didn’t managed it to blog earlier, but as it fits with the gluten-free theme at the moment and as the combination of peaches and blackberries is that good (I wasn’t convinced at all before) I had to blog it nonetheless. I found the recipe in the gluten-free girls aka Shauna James […]

Yes, you’ve seen right: Dulce de leche and cheesecake sprinkled with fleur de sel! If you don’t wanna taste this, well then I can’t help you anymore… just kidding not. This is one of my last cheesecake creations I made the last months. One of? Yeah exactly, more cheesecake recipes to come on this blog, since I’m a total sucker for cheesecakes. Don’t be afraid, we only bake this cake […]

Hand on heart, we made this incredible cake 4 times this summer, in words: four! This is a record in our household (at least this year), because I tend to try new cakes every time. Many of you know this common problem. But I just can’t pass blackberries (as well as raspberries), when I see them, since their season is so short. So every time I ask myself then, what […]

I think blackberries are my favourite fruit this summer, after raspberries or rather strawberries?! Um, difficult decision. In any case it’s the right decision to buy as much as possible of these summer fruits and to make this remarkable pie with blackberries. The nice thing about blackberries is, that they keep very firm while baking, not like their sister strawberry and they do not mould as easy as their sister […]

The strawberry season hasn’t ended yet, but the Pick-Your-Own-Farms are mostly grazed off. Somehow we didn’t managed it this year to go there, but we picked raspberries and black currants. We had to buy strawberries for jam, because our supplies were almost empty and I can’t get over the year without homemade strawberry jam. Our market stand was very generous, since in 2 baskets were still 1 kg strawberries after […]

Fighting the zucchini glut and making use of leftovers, that’s this bread, which is super delicious and moist, too. Zucchini and bananas make the bread moist, without noticing both in flavour. Cinnamon and mixed spices (or pumpkin pie spice) bring the right flavour. Although it might not be the right season for these spices yet, the rain and the cold wind make me feel like it is. Pecans are making […]
