Happy Birthday, Mickey! Thanks for all the peaceful hours you gave me while my daughter watched you on TV. I hope you like a good chocolate cake filled with amazing chocolate cream and redcurrant jelly!
Walnuts are just part of autumn baking. I could not imagine a better combination than walnut and apples seasoned with a little cinnamon, all packed in sweet, crispy rolls.
Especially in cold weather, I like to cook a hearty vegetable ragout It warms heart and soul.
If you or probably your daughter likes unicorns, you should not miss these cute unicorn cupcakes. My daughter just loves them, I personally not so much of a fan of them. It was fun to bake and decorate with Isa though, it made her really happy and that’s what counts.
At Halloween, a pumpkin dessert is a must. This time I made a decadent no-bake pumpkin mousse cake.
One of the best things that can happen to an egg is Pavlova. The other is pudding. The beautiful, delicate Pavlova bears the name of the Russian ballet dancer Anna Pavlova. It is crunchy outside and soft inside. Every bite is a dream.
This is a traditional French cake originating from Brittany in France. Usually baked with prunes, but I also like to add a handful of raisins in the batter.
Whenever I want to pamper my family with a nice Sunday breakfast, I opt for pancakes. Because everybody likes pancakes. This time I chose an autumn version with plums and walnut, seasoned with cinnamon.
My typical day starts with a porridge. The colder the weather gets, the spicer I make it. I especially like to add fruit to it and the caramelized pear was the right choice to go with this cinnamon and ginger-spiced porridge. Happy International porridge day!
Chickpeas have a special place in my heart. For example, I prefer the spicy falafel to any kind of meat. Chickpeas are a great source of protein. This time instead of using whole wheat flour, I used chickpea flour to make wraps. I filled it with grilled veggies and spicy yogurt, but you can serve it with just about anything.
