carob and orange bundt cake

Carob and Orange Bundt Cake

This carob bundt cake just made its appearance on the blog, and it already got up some really lovely compliments. I’ve been told it looks like a royal crown or resembles an Alice in Wonderland cartoon (because of the colors, I guess). Great credit definitely goes to this interesting bundt pan that I used. In […]

Raspberry Brioche Babka Recipe

My first idea was to make a chocolate babka with cardamom and hazelnuts but I ended up making this raspberry brioche babka instead. As we are somehow surrounded by loads of chocolate desserts in this pre-Christmas time, it occurred to me that maybe I could create a Christmas babka with a fruit filling that will […]

Dark Chocolate Hazelnuts Oatmeal Cookies

My search for delicious, homemade oatmeal cookies lasted for quite a long time: I often experimented with different ingredients: dried fruit, nuts, butter, and oil, with and without chocolate, experimenting with different types of flour, adding grated apples… I have a feeling that I’ve tried almost all the recipes for oatmeal cookies the internet can […]

no-bake blueberry cheesecake

No-Bake Blueberry White Chocolate Cheesecake

I don’t know about you, but when summer temperatures start to increase above 35°C, my brain turns to chew gum (metaphorically speaking). Goes to standby. Or sails to the Caribbean to drink rum with Jack Sparrow. Dances hula dance somewhere under the palm trees in Hawaii. It just refuses to cooperate. That’s why I’m looking […]

Delicious Chocolate Glazed Yeast Donuts

Why Do Donuts Have Holes in The Center? As a real food geek, I’m always curious to find out little-known facts about food. Like, who the hell is the first person in history who came up with the idea of throwing a piece of leavened sweet dough in the hot oil. Although food history rarely […]

Apple Crumble With Cardamom Butter Sauce

Lately, I’m totally into simple, rustic desserts, and apple crumble fits perfectly into that category: simple, rustic fruit dessert that is baked in the oven. Besides apples, crumble filling usually consists of peaches, berries, apricots, plums, pears, and if you’re lucky, rhubarb. This apple crumble was the first thing I baked just after the earthquake […]

Simple No Measure Yogurt Cake

Thanks to the good people I’m surrounded with, so far I have collected a beautiful collection of old, vintage cookbooks. So, thank you again for that, you know who you are. 😉 Some of them belonged to my grandmothers. Some of them are to someone’s aunts. Some are written in beautiful handwriting that very few […]
