mandľovo jablkový tart s crème fraîche

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…

Marhuľovo černicová galetka

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…

strúhaný tvarohový koláč s červenými ríbezľami

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…

Levanduľová panna cotta s čiernymi ríbezľami

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…

malinové tiramisu

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…

Banánový chlebík s malinami a čokoládou

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…

čokoládovo čerešňové truffles guľky

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…

Strawberry obsession continues and although their season is almost over you still have some time to make this Chocolate Loaf Cake with Strawberry Cream Cheese Filling. Although cherries are not ripe here yet, I´m really happy for these strawberries because they are my first home grown strawberries. Until now, I always had to buy them. Although there isn´t much of…

Jahodové tartaletky s tvarohom a šľahačkou

Strawberry Cream Cheese Tartlets


Strawberries, strawberries, strawberries everywhere. In my case, strawberries and tartlets. I kind of have tartlet obsession so second recipe in row is for tartlets, specifically for Strawberry Cream Cheese Tartlets. If you remember last year No-bake Chocolate Raspberry Cheesecake Cups which were so popular, this is exactly the same filling. Cream cheese with sour cream and whipping cream tastes really…

jahodovo rebarborové tartaletky

Strawberry Rhubarb Tartlets


Strawberry and rhubarb season is here so I decided to make something from them. I consider rhubarb to be too sour so there is not a chance I would do just a rhubarb cake, I had to combine it with strawberries. I also don´t like those “threads” in rhubarb so I used an immersion blender, a problem solved. Of course,…

kávové biscotti s čokoládou

Mocha Chocolate Chip Biscotti


I realized that except Coffee Bundt Cake I don´t have any recipe with coffee on the blog so I must fix it right away. I am a big coffee lover and it must be noticeable also in my dessert. Specifically, I made Coffee Chocolate Chip Biscotti, or if you don´t have chocolate chips, you can use chopped chocolate as well.…

Raspberry Chocolate Cake Bars


Last frozen raspberry supplies are quickly using up, I just hope that summer will come very soon. Thank God I can see cherries already blossoming, at least this comforts me. Anyway, last raspberries were used in these Raspberry Chocolate Cake Bars. They are made from thicker sponge cake since cake needs to hold raspberry gelatin, then from frozen (or you…

Francúzsky citrónový tart so snehom

French Lemon Meringue Tart (Tarte au citron meringuée)


I just love French cuisine, especially French patisserie. They are (usually) simple, not greasy and literally melt on your tongue. This also applies to a very popular French Lemon Meringue Tart or in French Tarte au citron meringuée. Since I had a lot of eggs, I finally decided to try it and I definitely don´t regret it because everyone loved it. Tart…

Once in a blue moon, I am in mood for something healthy. After all these sweet desserts I thought that I was about time to make something healthier. I didn´t want to exaggerate it so old-fashioned oats were enough for me, I consider them to be quite healthy. In order to spice up these Banana Oat Chai Spiced Muffins a…

Vanilla Donuts with Caramel Glaze


Donuts stuffed with caramel from one no-named shop are my weakness so I wanted to make the similar ones. I found out that I don´t have any idea how they make the dough. I tried to make donuts baked in an oven, later donuts fried in oil, but they still didn´t taste like the ones from the shop. If you…
