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
I think there are only a few cakes that seem to please everyone. A popular German cake called »Russischer Zupfkuchen« aka. Chocolate Cheesecake is definitely one of those cakes. I never met anyone (personally) who did not like this cake. What can I say – I love it too because it’s so damn delicious! Creamy, chocolaty, absolutely great! Today, I made a version of this cake that is a bit different – a Chocolate Cheesecake with Raspberries and little chocolate hearts on top. Great for Mother’s Day… don’t you think? ;)
This Heart Strawberry Cheesecake is a type of German »Käsesahnetorte« and one of many classic cakes in Germany that is loved and hated at the same time ;P Back in the day, when I was young, this type of cake was the »hot shit« everybody loved. There was no family gathering without one of these (or something very similar) on the table. Nowadays, you see cakes like that a little less often and some say they are »old-fashioned«… like cakes you would only serve grandma and grandpa. I think it’s time for an »cake intervention«! ;P Let’s make these cakes great again! Who’s in?! Probably only people 45 and older ;)
Dunno how you feel about it, but I really love cakes with cherries. So good! Unfortunately, those little red fellas are not available all year round. At least not if you want to get them from a local farmer, for example. But… that does not mean you can’t make this delicious Easy Cheesecake with Cherries all year round. Luckily, this cake works perfect with frozen cherries… and those are available all year round if you prepared some during summer. Means cherry cakes all year round. I could not think of a better way to celebrate the hopefully soon coming summer ;P
I’m a big fan of cheesecakes – everyone around me knows that. Don’t really care if the cheesecake was baked or, as in this case, just had to chill in the fridge for a while. All great! I have to admit, though, that a No-Bake Cinnamon Roll Cheesecake like this one here does have some advantages… especially when you have various other things on your to-do list and can’t focus your attention on just one thing. When baking for small and/or large festivities there is always a lot to do – so not having to worry about a showstopper like this one is always great ;P
Apples are great for baking all year round even though their peak season is actually in fall and winter when all other fruits are less available in Supermarkets. Apples are available fresh all year round even from local farmers because they can be stored for quite some time. This means this delicious Apple Crumble Custard Cake can be done anytime you feel like it. The combination of apples, streusels and vanilla custard is great – the recipe shows how you can make this cake with ease ;)
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 ;)
