Strawberry Cake

It’s finally time for the first locally grown strawberries! ¬†And the first Strawberry Cake! Although the first strawberries aren’t as aromatic as they are later, these were extra sweet! Have a very nice weekend! ūüėČ

Sweet Piled Cake

That recipe is very light and to be honest, simple. Basically it is made of not very moisture¬†chocolate sponge,¬†homemade vanilla pudding¬†with whipped cram and¬†red colored berries. Chocolate sponge should be dry this time – we want moisture it with lots of compote¬†and liqueur to get that light and creamy texture at the end. As contain […]


Is it still a Sacher cake?

Been thinking about that cake for weeks. It was planed for May and fresh strawberries that that month brings with.

Lemon & poppy seeds cake

About a year ago I received¬†Hummingbird Bakery cookbook as a Birthday present. There is a ‘ lemon and poppy-seed cake’ recipe. As I hadn’t the ring mould I decided to use regular cake mould. While preparing the ‘filling’ I figure out that my guests won’t like it as is not creamy enough. Instead of sugar […]

Apple cream cake

To prepare such apple cream¬†organic apples are needed. Those with yellow, not white¬†colour in the middle, with greasy texture and lots of natural sugars and gorgeous natural flavour. This time Granny Smiths are not that ok. up to 1 cup nut milk 5 table spoons sugar 1 cup white all-purpose flour 1/2 tea-spoon baking powder […]
