Christmas Gingerbread Red Velvet Bars


Although Christmas baking is mainly about cookies, I´m sure you also bake one or two creamy cakes. Moreover, what´s more Christmas-y than the smell of gingerbread. I combined gingerbread with traditional American recipe for Red Velvet and made Christmas Gingerbread Red Velvet Bars. The dessert Red Velvet is known for its fluffiness, red color and mascarpone or cream cheese and…

French Cocoa Viennese Biscuits


December is here, not only calendar, but also weather, says that. I hope that it will get wiser and there won´t be -15 Celsius degrees during a night anymore, I am not used to this kind of chilly weather. The best thing to do in such weather is to tuck up in a blanket with hot chocolate, a laptop on…

Some people are already baking for Christmas, but I try to avoid Christmas baking, I still have time for it, at least one week. By this time, the blog will be in Christmas mood too. I noticed mangoes on sale a few days ago, so I took two of them and I was wondering at home what I would make…

Tarte Tatin


I´m sure it happened to you too. There is a phone ringing, telling you that a visit will come in about two hours. There is no cake in a refrigerator, so you need to work quickly in order it will be ready by then. I had some defrosted puff pastry in a refrigerator, so one problem solved. I decided to…

Chocolate Cheesecake with Cherry Sauce


Although it is just November, my freezer is full of summer fruit, so it would be about time to use it. The first one to use up was cherries from summer. Of course, you can use fresh cherries instead of the frozen ones, you will just need to use more water. I wanted to make a chocolate cheesecake for a…

Hazelnut Cookies with Nutella Filling


No, I don´t bake for Christmas yet, although it may look like it.  Cookies don´t have to be make only at Christmas, if I have some time left, since I always bake more batches (= more baking pans), I like to bake them also during a year. However, the first time I baked these Hazelnut Cookies with Nutella Filling was…

Lemon Poppy Seed Cheesecake Muffins


The combination of poppy seed and lemon hasn´t been here a while so I made Lemon Poppy Seed Cheesecake Muffins. Since I had some mascarpone which needed to be used up, I´ve been tempted to make some cheesecake muffins for a while. Fluffy cake batter in muffins with creamy cheesecake center, well, who could resist that. A muffin taste is…

Halloweenske Frankenstein tartaletky


Halloween is coming and although I don´t celebrate it, I never refuse an occasion to make some funny dessert. Halloween Frankenstein Tartelettes look funny, they are easy to make and if you don´t want to, you don´t even have to use food coloring. Pistachio custard itself has a green color, so tartelettes will have a slight green color way one…

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…

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…

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…
