Torture, torture… 3 months of intensive German course! Sigh… Few weeks ago I felt like waffles and decided to use my waffle maker for the second time. Sadly that was its final time. After that it stopped working. Nonetheless these waffles are indeed light and simple. Combined with whipped cream and fruits make an awesome dessert. Especially while still warm. This recipe comes from here. Have fun!
Moving doesn’t help baking or cooking but I managed to make some muffins in between unpacking and folding things. These ones were proposed to be made with gooseberries but I made them with sour cherries and apricots. The sweet meringue topping is breaking the sourness of the fruits. Definitely for sour/sweet combo lovers. They do not look as good as the original ones but I could not find my normal muffin forms. Took the recipe from here. Enjoy!
I made this cake for my friend’s birthday and was afraid that it might not taste good. It did though! I think it took 5 minutes for it to disappear completely. Mix of figs, hazelnuts, chocolate and cranberries in sweet meringue and on top of that mix of mascarpone and Nutella with just a touch of alcohol made this cake unbelievably delicious. I will certainly prepare it again. Found it in the book of my guru but one can also find it on her blog. Enjoy!
Ps. I wish I could have taken a better picture.
I had a rhubarb left from a previous weekend and did not want to waste it so I made this cake. I would never expect something that easy to be so delicious. The mix of sweet topping and sour/sweet fruit part with the biscuit base makes it a great combination. Looking forward to making it with different fruits. Enjoy!
Christmas is getting closer! I am trying out different recipes for Christmas cookies with Lebkuchen and Katie’s cookies (Katarzynki) waiting in a queue. This is the first kind I tried. Really delectable, crunchy on the outside, chewy on the inside. Easy to prepare and irresistible in taste. Try it! Totally worth it! I found the recipe here.
Another position on my white diet’s menu. I prepared normal size Pavlova before but decided to prepare mini ones for a change. They are crispy (as meringue) on the outside and chewy and delicate on the inside. Served with whipped cream and fruits. The recipe (with little modifications) comes from here. Enjoy!
After preparing eclairs, I was left with quite few egg whites so I have decided to prepare Pavlova. Heard a lot about this dessert but never tried it.
Pavlova is a meringue cake with a delicate crisp crust and a soft marshmallow center. The name, Pavlova, was chosen in honor of the Russian ballerina, Anna Pavlova, who toured New Zealand and Australia in 1926.
