The roasted almond chocolates have been the initial trick, but the second follows quick. It’s another homemade chocolate creation. Let me introduce you to these cocoa truffles with baileys.
Hooray! Finally! For the autumn season I’ve got a yummy apple snack for you. Ta-dah! It’s my granny’s apple pie – A delicious sheet cake with apples, cinnamon and topped with a pie crust ( or let’s say some pie crust elements).
For today’s sweet treat I want to take you to beautiful Italy. To Sicily to be exact. ‘Cause these little fellas are a Sicilian tradition – crunchy (deep-fried) canoli with a cappuccino and stracciatella cream filling.
Oops! The time has come! I am going crazy. Last time, I introduced the autumn season, and now you have to find a Christmassy cake on my blog. Just like those grocery stores which have aisles filled with christmas treats at the beginning of September. Normally, I smile at this craze and avoid buying christmas stuff until decemeber… or at least until November…No chance! At the end of September I nibbled on my first piece of christmas stollen and ate a handful of spiced biscuits. Though, I avoided the christmas aisles, I found myself in the kitchen baking my own pre-christmassy christmas cakes. Hey presto! There they were. A huge gingerbread cake and smaller gingerbread squares glazed with an orange and cinnamon frosting.
Oh! Looking at my recipe archive, I just realised that it’s almost a year since I posted this easy-peasy Strawberry Mascarpone Mousse. So,I should definitely post another super easy dessert. Since the last one originally came from my granny’s recipe collection, I took another one from her treasured book. It’s a dessert made of quark and layered with cherries and crunchy muesli. Due to this she benignly called it muesli dream.
