Happy Cookie Friday! Today’s recipe is an easy one. No baking needed here. These cookies require much less work than other cookies I got here on the blog… even though my cookie recipes are normally not complicated at all ;P Well, these No-Bake Amaranth White Chocolate Cookies are a quick fix for your next craving for sweet stuff. They are also sugar-free… did I mention that already?! Well…now you know! ;)
Today I got a delicious cheesecake for you. Once again a cheesecake, yes! Is there a moment where cheesecake is not the perfect cake to make? Exactly! Everybody loves cheesecake! ;) Rich, but not too sweet and incredibly delicious. Nectarines and apricots make this Ricotta Cheesecake here very refreshing on a hot summer day! Can’t think of anything that would be better right now…
Do you have bakes/dishes that remind you of specific vacations or countries you’ve visited? I got that with Austria, for example. Mozartkugeln, Sachertorte and these Marillenknödel (aka. Sweet Apricot Dumplings) here always remind me of our neighboring country. The first two delicacies are quite obviously connected to Austria (they originate in Salzburg and Vienna) – the apricot dumplings on the other hand are a bit more difficult to connect to Austria alone since they are also common in Bavaria and Czechia. Those dumplings are actually an “import” from former Bohemia. I bet you knew that already ;)
The end of the month is here… the money is gone and everyone is waiting for fresh money to appear on the bank account ;) Well.. even though this is an important topic, there is something much more important at the end of each month: Bake Together – The Baking Surprise with Andrea from Zimtkeks & Apfeltarte! Yay! ;) You know… that little baking thing where we choose a topic and surprise each other with the result. This month it’s all about apricots and I made a delicious galette with… apricots! And plums and nectarines ;)
It seems summer is taking a break here in Berlin. You never know – the weather has been very unpredictable this year – maybe summer is coming back or is gone until next year ;) But who cares – if there is no sun, we can think of it and make something delicious. For example: Popsicles with Skyr.
You probably heard of the famous Sacher Torte from Austria. A delicious chocolaty treat, perfekt for your afternoon coffee time. This version here is not as famous, but definitely as good. It’s an interpretation of the tratitional recipe turned into a cupcake. Try it – tell me what you think – but be warned… it’s a lot of chocolate :) READ MORE
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 ;)
