Strawberry Cocoa Cheesecake Torte


Strawberries are everywhere, I collected almost two full bowls of strawberries yesterday from my garden so the part of them immediately went into a cake. And since it is scorching hot and I prefer nice cold desserts in this weather, I decided for the combination of cocoa sponge cake with cheesecake filling and chopped strawberries. I cut the cake into…

Chocolate Cherry Bars


Chocolate and cherries. I opened my freezer and cherries were staring at me. I was craving for something with chocolate and cherries, and mostly, for a big amount of cake. I was firstly thinking of Black Forest bars with heavy cream on the top, but then I thought that they don´t contain enough chocolate. Therefore, I replaced heavy cream with…

Chocolate Coconut Macaroon Bundt Cake


Cakes and cookies from holidays are almost gone and for someone this period is about new year´s resolutions and losing weight. I never really understood the principle of new year´s resolutions and new year´s wishes. One who wants to do some resolutions, he/she can do it anytime during a year, he/she doesn´t have to wait until new year. When it…

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,…

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…

Double Chocolate Cookie Sandwich with Ganache


So December is here. The frequency of the question “have you bought everything for Christmas yet?”  is rapidly increasing. And no, I haven´t, honestly, I wouldn´t even realize that some Christmas is coming if it wasn´t for all these Christmas themes everywhere. At first, I have to fight through all tests, seminar works and everything similar to these, so I…

kakaovo - pomarančová roláda

Cocoa orange swiss roll


I guess I´m weird, but when I bake something without cream, I want to eat something with cream and vice versa. One of the reasons might be being a woman so it is normal to change opinions. I hope I´m not the only one and that you´re sometimes in mood for something else than what is already baked. Similar situation…

Chocolate cookies stuffed with salted caramel


 I think I have a new obsession and that is salted caramel. Personally, I like it even more than traditional caramel. After all, ¾ tsp of salt isn´t that much. Stay tuned for next week, when I will post a bit more traditional (Christmas) recipe with salted caramel. These cookies have a great combination of bitter cocoa, sweet chocolate and caramel, so they…
