What’s your favorite dessert when you need something quick and don’t want to spend a lot of time in the kitchen? Right, a layered dessert. Well… at least that is my favorite thing to do ;) Like this one here with fresh strawberries, cookies, and müsli bars to give it the right amount of crunch!
If you have been to the southern part of Germany or Austria, you probably seen or eaten this dish already: Kaiserschmarren or translated Emperor’s Mess. It is basically a big pancake that has been shredded, served with applesauce or compote. A nice dish any time of the day. For breakfast as well as for lunch or dinner… or anytime in between ;)
When Apples are in season and delivered fresh to the supermarket or farmers market, you should make something with them. I personally love everything made with apples. Apple cake, pie, cookies… My recipe today is an easy one with apples you can enjoy all year round – Apple Crumble with Maple Walnuts.
I guess you know this situation… you want to make something, but somehow there is never enough time. Or there are so many other things to do, that one thing gets pushed back all the time. Happened to me with Mille-feuille. Many of you probably know this delicious French dessert already. I had it on my “to-do-list” for ages but never time to make it. Until now… ;)
What is your opinion about rhubarb? Yay or nay? Do you like it? Well… I am a big fan of it. Huge fan. The biggest fan in the world (would Trump say I suppose). No really – I like it a lot ;) You could say “Rhubarb was my first love”… and then came raspberries. That is one reason, why I am using it right now as often as possible. The rhubarb season is short, so (almost) every day has to be used to make something with it! Cakes, bread, scones, dumplings… everything tastes better with some rhubarb. So does this layered dessert with chocolate biscotti and a rhubarb-raspberry compote!
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 ;)
