Apple Cream Cheese Cake


So the last this year cake from seasonal fruit is here. Frozen fruits, bananas and similar stuff will have to be used in a while. This Apple Cream Cheese Cake became so popular, that I saw varied recipes for it everywhere, even a week after I made it, it turned up in a newsletter of a shop. Like I say,…

Extra Chocolate Cupcakes


A chocoholic is here. There is almost no fruit, it is too early for freezer supplies, so here comes chocolate. My inner me is beyond happy when she can make (and then eat) anything with chocolate, winter is good exactly for that, the easiest access is to chocolate. Today, I have a real delicacy for chocoholics – Extra Chocolate Cupcakes.…

Soft Pumpkin Cookies


So, fall is here. Yes, I know it is here for a few days now but these temperature fluctuations are relatively new for this year. If it was just warm or cold weather, not changing constantly. I know that fall is here when my body doesn´t want to adjust to these fluctuations and I always get the cold/flu on the…

Upside Down Apple Poppy Seed Cake Bars


It got cold, I don´t even know when, but you can still find a few apples in your garden. And you can make this traditional Slovak Upside Down Apple Poppy Seed Cake Bars with them. Who wouldn´t recognize it, I think it is a must-have in Slovak homes. In my place, when I was little and we had lots of…

Apple Oat Cheesecake in Jars


I thought that I wouldn´t do anything with apples this year anymore, but when I see all these fallen apples in my garden I feel sorry not to use them. When I checked my last year recipes, I made apple recipes even in October and now, in the middle of September, it seems late. I don´t know whether I started early…

Pumpkin Cocoa Bundt Cake


What´s more fall than pumpkin. I finally planted a Hokkaido pumpkin this year (and it grew) and I couldn´t waited to make something from it. My excitement fell a bit when I realized that the pumpkin needed to be washed, baked, peeled and mixed with a bit of water, only then I could use puree 😀 Anyway, after all this,…

Soft Pear Chocolate Walnut Cake


Next and, at the same time, last this-year-pear-cake recipe is this Soft Pear Chocolate Walnut Cake. If you remember a last week recipe, it used 5 egg whites so I was thinking what to do with remaining egg yolks. It is happening quite often that I have leftover egg yolks, I even put them in a freezer, but their expiry…

Pear Chocolate Mousse Torte


First this-year-pear-recipe on the blog is with chocolate combination. I made my peace with the fact that majority of fruits at my home will be wasted since it is like all fruits conspired against me and ripen at the same time. One just doesn´t have any chance to use it all up. I read current food magazines and it seems…

Apple Almond Crème Fraîche Tart


There are plenty of apples this year (like plenty of everything) so I was thinking what to do with them. By the way, does anyone want apples? It is a pity that they can´t be stored in the same shape, without freezing or making a compote, until winter. Anyway, I wanted to use them as many as possible, but a…

No bake Plum Cheesecake


As I already mentioned on FB, this-year-fruits ripen very soon, it is just the beginning of August and half of plums have already fallen from trees. I just don´t get it. So at least a few of them had to be used in a cake, of course. As you may know, or not, I don´t like a traditional Slovak Plum…

Waffle Ice Cream Sandwich with Homemade Raspberry Ice Cream


Summer temperatures are extremely high so ice cream is a must-have. I made not just a simple one, but Waffle Ice Cream Sandwich with Homemade Raspberry Ice Cream. Something similar to Russian ice cream with wafers, but made with homemade waffles. I really like doing waffles, it is a quick substitute for a cake, and I make these vanilla ones…

Blackberry Apricot Galette


This year, I have blackberries too, hooray. Last year, when I finally wanted to get them, I either didn´t find any or I was all soaking wet. This year it didn´t look promising either, after all, I was picking them from wet branches, but, luckily, I managed to do it without any rain. Now, I´m laughing that if you want…

Traditional Red Currant Cream Cheese Crumble Cake


It may not be clear from my recipes, but I come from and live in Slovakia. And from time to time I´m in mood for traditional Slovak cuisine. Besides cakes from kneaded dough and Kolach rolls stuffed with different fillings, this Crumble Cream Cheese Cake is definitely one of the most traditional desserts. In Slovakia, we call it “Strúhaný tvarohový…

Lavender Black Currant Panna Cotta


Lavender can be used in a baking too and when it is its season I love to add it into some recipe. I recently bought cups, so panna cotta was a clear choice. And since I had some black currants left in my garden, Lavender Black Currant Panna Cotta was made. I added yogurt to a base recipe so this…

Blueberry Sour Cream Cheesecake


I know, I know, blueberry season is on for many days by now. But here, on the east of Slovakia, everything becomes ripe later and when I finally manage to get it, make something from it and post it on the blog, it is almost non-topical. But I am sure that you can still find blueberries in a market or…

Easy Raspberry Tiramisu


What kind of a food blog it would have been, if tiramisu had been missing. And indeed, tiramisu had been missing on my blog. We made it in our home a few years ago, but we had a recipe which required eggs so we didn´t like it. Now, I wanted to give it a shot again, but this time without…

Raspberry Chocolate Banana Bread


I´m opening a raspberry season on the blog with a traditional Raspberry Chocolate Banana Bread. It is traditional because this recipe is the universal one, you basically can add anything to it, substitute raspberries with any seasonal fruit, use nuts instead of chocolate and so on. Another reason is that I made it so many times that the recipe is…

Chocolate Cherry Truffles


My cherries were not ripe yet during this week so I was thinking about a cake which didn´t require a lot of cherries. Eventually, I made Chocolate Cherry Truffles. Just to make it clear, truffles, or truffle balls, have recently become popular and you can find them in stores. But why should you buy them since they are so simple…
