I love baking with rhubarb! No matter what – everything with rhubarb turns out great. I know that not everyone feels that way because it’s not everyone’s favorite veggie to bake with ;P But I can live with that. Means more rhubarb for me and everyone that actually likes those red-green stalks. A great recipe to celebrate the rhubarb season is this simple Rhubarb Streusel Coffee Cake. (Relatively) quick on the table, great texture, and extremely delicious – what more could you want?!
Pizza is one of the most popular dishes among Germans. If I’m not mistaken it’s even on top of the list…? At least when it comes to food delivery and meals from the freezer aisle at the supermarket. Number 1 meal made from scratch at home? Not so much ;P Pizza definitely loses some places in that category because it normally takes some time to make pizza dough from scratch… but is it difficult? Not at all. This Simple Overnight (Spelt) Pizza Dough is super easy to prepare and done in no time… if you are not counting in the time the dough spends in the fridge ;P
Apple cakes and apple pies are traditionally found wherever apples are grown. That makes sense, right? In Germany, you can find many different types of apple cakes like »Gedeckter Apfelkuchen« or a »Sunken Apple Cake«. In France you can also find a huge variety of cakes with apples – for example, this Apple Cake with Crème fraîche – well, and the Dutch like to bake a Dutch Apple Pies… or is it only the Americans that call this cake here Dutch Apple Pie, and think they are baking a pie from the Netherlands?! ;)
When people think about Spanish cuisine, the first things that probably come to their minds are Paella, Tapas, and maybe Churros… but there is much more, of course! If you’re a fan of cheesecakes you will most definitely know about the Basque Cheesecake aka. San Sebastián Cheesecake. This super delicious and creamy cheesecake, with its very special dark (and partially burnt) crust, which also gives the cake its third name: Basque Burnt Cheesecake! My Basque Cheesecake with Blueberries & Raspberries didn’t turn out quite as »burnt«, but instead, the delicious berries bring it to a whole other level ;P
There are times when you are craving something sweet, but there is nothing sweet in your cabinets. If you stopped »hoarding« sweets and chocolate as I did, this is actually a very likely situation ;P Luckily, I normally got everything at home to bake something sweet. Something sweet and easy like these Banana & Walnut Muffins. Mixed together in a few minutes and baked just as quickly. Faster than any delivery service could bring you chocolate… I assume. Definitely cheaper ;P
Hi, my name is Marc. I'm a graphic designer.
I love my job, but in between I love to bake and try new things in the kitchen. A lot of my friends and colleagues encourage me to bake - for a very simple reason: they get the leftovers - and it seems they like it most of the time ;)
