Maybe you’ve already made an educated guess … This isn’t a brand-new post – I published it about 4 years ago. Then I’d like to present a recipe for chocolate cake & some insights – my very own! – about healthy food in general & especially about posts featuring the It-word healthy.…

… from 2021 into 2022 w/ some small bundt cakes

A happy 2022 to all of you! I (resp my blog!) finally arrived in 2022 – w/ a recipe for small Bundt cakes I made somewhere between Xmas & New Year’s Day out of a spontaneous feeling. (So far you may deduce that I didn’t start any cooking or baking – ready for my blog – after New Year’s Day.) Somehow the little guys look very Xmas-sy with regard to the colors: chocolate brown, red…

orange cake w/ olive oil

Dieser Beitrag enthält Werbung – advertising.   Last week I wrote about Odette Williams’ book „Simple Cake“ – now a recipe turned into life. Based on the olive oil cake w/ orange flavor I created my own version following the tips in the book.     The recipe defines cake for 2 rather small round cake pans – I used a larger springform. I made some rough calculation & decided that the area covered by…

bananas, bananas…

Dieser Beitrag enthält Werbung – advertising.   To begin with: a banana bread isn’t bread, it’s cake. At the end you get a juicy, soft cake w/ chocolate flavor & a hint of vanilla. (Ok – this time I didn’t add any more spices like cinnamon or so, nor did I shatter any nuts, nor did I think of any additional fruit or vegetables… to make all just a bit more fancy!)   For the…

Before Xmas there were loads of recipes for cakes & cookies & all types of sweet stuff all over the food blog universe – although I didn’t post such a lot in the pre-Xmas Time. Now I think it’s time to look outside, take note of winter season,…

Italy & you’ll learn about the best desserts ever!) Tiramisu: Imagine a (big!) rectangular casserole filled w/ ladyfingers soaked w/ espresso & fine liquor, covered w/ mascarpone cream finished by a thick layer of cocoa. You may indulge…
